Master of the Grill, do you have what it takes to be Master of the Grill, Griddle, Deep Fryer and Warming Plate? The Blacktop 360-Degree Party Grill combines all four methods of heat conduction into one massive, all-inclusive backyard BBQ installation. It's food preparation souped up for today's generation of multi-taskers, overachievers, and highly focused Adderall abusers.
452 square inches of porcelain-coated surfacing call out to tongs and spatulas, begging to be covered in everything from burgers and brats, to hot wings and fries for start-of-summer blowouts, to pancakes and bacon, and eggs and donut holes for easing the next morning's war zone cleanup and searing hangover. And while the Blacktop's 360-degree feature is marketed as a way to integrate party goers with grill maestros--a circular configuration means multiple people can cook at once, and the host doesn't have to turn his back on guests as he sweats all over their sliders and hot links--we know the real reason patio daddy-o's will want a party grill is so that male competitors and female admirers can behold their culinary supremacy in action.
The grill's 16-ounce center deep fryer also wears hats of sauce pan, wok, and pot for boiling, steaming, and, oh yeah, fondue. Three sections surround the deep fryer: 1) a dedicated grill with a Hellfire ceramic infrared burner base capable of heating to 650 degrees F; 2) a griddle, whose double porcelain-enamel surface churns out succulent grilled sides, such as onions, bacon, and toasted buns; and 3) a warming-plate section for keeping items heated without over-cooking.
Party grills fire 24,000 BTUs of total cooking power from a 1-pound propane canister, distributed over 3 independent temperature controls. Orders also come with a cutting board, slosh ring, thermometer, liquid catch bottle, 3-position cover, and carrying pack. Fully assembled BBQs measure 31" x 31" x 30.5", though legs collapse and fold up for easy transport and storage.
