As the leading manufacturer of high-end outdoor kitchen equipment, Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet™ recently announced its latest line of new Hybrid Fire Grills.

These Hybrid Fire Grills are the only barbeques that cook with three different fuels at once: wood, charcoal and gas.

These unique grills provide the widest cooking versatility on the market, giving their owners the freedom to pursue any outdoor cooking technique they desire – using the fuel of their choice.

People now have an appreciation for sophisticated flavors and these preferences in food have moved outdoors to the grill. People better appreciate the subtleties that come from cooking with charcoal or wood, but also desire the convenience offered by gas burners.

Up until now, several separate pieces of equipment were required to capture the benefits that come from cooking with different fuels. Not anymore with the new Hybrid Fire Grills from Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet.

Hybrid Fire Grilling System drawers, located above the gas burners and below the cooking surface, make it possible for these powerful grills to use any combination of gas, wood or charcoal. Simply leave the drawers empty to use a Kalamazoo as a gas grill. Or, load the patented drawers with wood or charcoal and use the burners to start the fire. Once lit, turn off the burners to enjoy the pure, dry heat of a charcoal fire or the flavorful smoke of a wood fire.

Custom-cast brass H-burners deliver superior power and control. Gas cooking temperatures range from 250ºF for low and slow cooking to 800ºF, making the entire cooking surface a searing zone and eliminating the need for dedicated searing burners. The grills’ burner configuration offers bigger, more linear control zones, giving the outdoor cook the ability to tailor the heat to a specific section. When using charcoal or wood fuels, cooking temperatures range from a low of 150ºF to a high of 1,200ºF.

The grills also feature a one-of-a-kind ignition system that pairs a dedicated ignition burner with electronic hot surface ignition. This new approach creates the most reliable ignition system. Additionally, the ignition burner can be used alone for low-temperature smoking and barbecue.

The Hybrid Fire Grill comes in four different sizes and 12 models. Built-in or free standing options are available:

  • K500: two burners, 506 square inches of primary cooking surface, 50,000 main burner BTUs
  • K750: three burners, 726 square inches of primary cooking surface, 75,000 main burner BTUs
  • K1000: four burners, 1,012 square inches of primary cooking surface, 100,000 main burner BTUs
  • K1500: six burners, 1452 square inches of primary cooking surface, 150,000 main burner BTUs

Pricing for the Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet line of grills begins at $9,990. These new lines of Hybrid Fire Grills will be available in summer 2011.
