Let’s face it: If you have $25,000 to invest on a gas grill, chances are you’re not slapping Ballpark Franks on your spiffy new Kalamazoo Hybrid. You’re treating your guests to striped bass caught from your private marina or Boucherie Polmard’s vintage cote de boeuf. The Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire K1000HS allows budding Bobby Flays to cook with gas, wood, and charcoal interchangeably or in any combination, so you can barbeque low and slow or sear that sucker with 1,000-degree heat. Its four cast-brass primary burners provide up to 110,000 BTUs with natural gas, the grilling surface measures a generous 46×22 inches, and the motor-driven rotisserie system features two infrared burners. The Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire has been called “the Rolls-Royce of grills,” and we’re guessing it wouldn’t look bad parked next to your actual first-class ride.
Note: This grill is listed in our May/June 2016 issue as having a retail price of $35,000. We regret the error.
