9 of the Most Interesting Grills You'll Ever See

Burning meat over a fire has been essential for our development and man's ego. There is a wide variety of interesting grills out there and we thought we'd compile a few for comparison.

Whether you're into your Weber grills or Hibachi grills the following are a collection of very interesting grills indeed. Some are inspired ideas, others a little "out of this world" and yet more simply ridiculous. 

They are all, in their own way, pretty interesting to say the least, we hope you agree. So without further ado, we'll stop messing around and just get stuck in.

The following list is far from exhaustive and in no particular order. Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments.

1. JAG BBQ Grill

JAG's outdoor, obviously, BBQing grill, takes the act of burning meat to a crisp in the company of friends and family to a whole new level. Its design is such that everyone can enjoy their favorite immolated food without needing to compete for space. It comes with a large firepit for using wood or charcoal to grill. 

But it doesn't end there, everyone can have their own private piece of the grill literally in front of them. The table accessory can be removed if guests would prefer to stand around.

That is actually pretty awesome.

2. Gyroscopic charcoal grill

As interesting grills go, this one is certainly unique. Its gyroscopic design lets this amazing piece of kit constantly rotate and cook your food thoroughly and evenly.

This bad boy was recently spotted at the Grill Master Campeonato Nacional de Parrilladas (Grill Master National Barbecue Championship) in Monterrey, Mexico. The grill is said to be ideal for low and slow cooking allowing the center of the meat to be cooked to the desired temperature without overdoing the outside layers.

Whether it's a gimmick or not, it is certainly mesmerizing to watch in action.

3. Bar-B-Q Shack

Why settle for a simple BBQ grill when you can buy one that comes complete with its own shack and trailer? We never realized we needed one until we saw it! Amazing.

Technically speaking its a smoker rather than traditional gas, charcoal or wood BBQ, but don't let that stop you from living the good life.

This monster is the Bar-B-Q Shack Concession Trailer with Cabin built by Southern Yankee. It comes with sliding windows, wet and dry food wells, range hood, refrigerator wells, sinks, air conditioning, and even speakers! 

Shut up and take my money!!!

4. HEMI-Powered BBQ Grill

Grilling and BBQing are manly enough in its own right but what about combining it with a V-8 Engine? Hey, why the hell not. You can't get "manly-enough" can you when it comes to cooking meat.

Tim Kowalec built his HEMI-powered BBQ grill for Chrysler's "What can you HEMI" contest back in 2005.

This amazing piece of kit comes packed with a 5.7-liter V-8 engine which can cook, so it's claimed, 240 hotdogs in 3 minutes!

5. King of the Barbecues Grill

Somewhat of a grandiose name but does it live up to expectations? We'll let you be the judge if it qualifies on our list of interesting grills?

David Klose's Bling Bling Grill is amazing nonetheless. It comes with a 160,000 B.T.U propane burner that can boil 91 liters of water in five minutes! It comes with satellite radio, television, flat screens and a DVD player all of which are solar-powered!


Of course, no self-respecting member of royalty would be without some bling. Just to reinforce the point, it comes with 24-karat-gold rims and handles.

Of course.

6. Six Shooter Grill

Well, it was only a matter of time we suppose. Some genius decided to make a six-shooter themed BBQ grill pit.

We'll let Joe Wood of Weimar, Texas describe his creation:-

"The barrel is 10 feet long and 8 inches in diameter and the entire rig is over 15 feet long. The pistol’s grips, which cover the firebox, are made of red oak. When cooking, the barrel acts as the grill’s chimney. It took over two years and 1,100 hours to complete, and used more than two tons of red oak, stainless, and carbon steel."

7. USB desktop grill

Can't be prised away from your PC? Too lazy to go outside for BBQ? Then these chaps just might have the perfect solution for you.

If you take 6 PCI USB Cards with 5 ports each and connect around 30 USB cables to a hacked USB cup warmer you are all set for some great indoor desktop grilling baby! But how and why they thought of doing this is not such a simple thing to answer.

8. Deathstar grill

Oh my god! For those who like, scrap that, love Star Wars this is probably the best thing you've ever seen. BBQing with friends and family is usually pretty good fun or the worst thing you can imagine, at the best of times. 

You can really push the boat out and make the experience even better for all with this inspired charcoal grill. Granted this is a one-of-a-kind grill, but perhaps the creator will share his designs "for the greater good" sometime soon.

We love it.

9. Choo Choo Grill

We thought we'd end our little collection of interesting grills on a high note. This masterpiece of fusion between art and function is truly outstanding.

Clearly inspired by the humble steam engines of times gone past, this chap has infused a fair dose of Tim Burton-esk fantasy. Because it is pretty much a work of art, you might be a little reluctant to actually use it.
