Tom visits the world’s best grills!

Kalamazoo Chicago ShowroomOn a recent trip to Chicago, Tom had an opportunity for a private tour of Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet’s amazing Chicago showroom with the friendly and knowledgeable Ruth Tomuta.




KalamazooKalamazoo Showroom makes what are universally hailed as the best outdoor grills in the world. They pioneered the Hybrid Fire Grill…that’s right, you can cook with gas, charcoal or wood. If you put packets of wet wood chips in the grill drawer, you can even use the grill for a smoker. Of course there is a rotisserie system too. These grills are built like tanks-totally by hand in Kalamazoo, Michigan and each team member that helps build the grill signs their name inside the cabinet door. There are awesome videos on their website.

Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire GrillOn display in the showroom are all of Kalamazoo’s outdoor kitchen products, from this top-of-the-line K1000HB to super-cool pizza ovens to the open-fire Gaucho Grill. They’ve got all the refrigeration, cabinetry, ventilation and accessories that may tempt you into making your backyard dream kitchen a reality.
