A Man and His Grill

If you happen to follow my other blog, I Could Eat, you'll know that I'm a bit of a barbeque enthusiast.  Now that summer has decided to make its presence known in Vancouver I'd like to share some of the more interesting grill/bbq's I've seen over the year.

French company Focus has many fireplace designs in their catalogue, but it was the Diagfocus that really caught my eye.  It's made of a black steel and features wheels so it's moveable.  It can be used as a fireplace (wood burning or ethanol) or as a charcoal burning grill.  The sloping design of the back protects your guests from a direct blast of smoke and protects the fire from the wind.

A little more modest in its design is the Outclass charcoal grill from Eva Solo.  This unit is designed to blend in to your backyard decor ... it looks more like a flower pot than a grill!  Made of stainless steel it's also designed to last.

Designer Raffaele Lazzari came up with the MENU’ grill/fireplace for Italian company Metalco Home.  In fact, Metalco has an amazing collection of outdoor kitchen pieces that are all stylish in a way only the Italians can achieve.  The Menu reminds me of the old fireplaces we'd see in ski chalet's in the 1970's.  In fact it doubles as a grill and a fireplace so all you'd need is a bear skin rug!
