Kalamazoo: Outstanding, Superb Performance and Quality, Costly


      Let’s say you’re looking for the best of the best. You want to buy the perfect outdoor grill for your poolside kitchen or backyard patio. Quality, performance and durability must be top notch.  After all, it’s not just a grill, it’s an investment. If you’re looking for the Rolls Royce of models, you’ve come to the right spot as a Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet may be just the one you've been looking for.

      Modern Kalamazoo grills have been around for over 10 years and are all based on an original 100 year old custom designed gas cooker. In 1906, W.E. Upjohn, a prominent local doctor and founder of the Upjohn Pharmaceuticals company, had plans drawn up for a custom outdoor grill by Louis Bullard of Kalamazoo Sheet Metal. Over 100 years later Mr. Bullard’s great grandson found these plans, and launched the Kalamazoo company as we know them today.


      Nothing was lost over the years as Kalamazoo has kept up the tradition of offering highly custom models with exceptional quality and performance. Today Kalamazoo makes every part needed to design the perfect outdoor kitchen. You can customize your grill with almost anything you want including initials inscribed in the metal or grates. Their current lineup consists of a wide variety of designs ranging from 432 to 864 primary square inches of cooking space, plus additional warming racks. They offer some of the most powerful units on the market with BTU’s starting at 66,000 and exceeding 175,000. All this performance comes at a cost of around 6,700 dollars to a little over 14,700 dollars.


      While these grills are expensive, you are sure to be amazed. Each Kalamazoo is handmade from laser cut high quality steel.  This is the kind of grill that will last decades, not years. Only the best quality materials are used in construction. All 304 stainless and some 316 marine grade stainless steel are used depending on your level of customization.  The grates are cut from quarter inch steel to the design of your choice.  As evidence to the quality, some of these grills can weigh close to 500 pounds.


      Kalamazoo has several unique aspects that make them a versatile choice for grilling enthusiasts. If you can’t choose between gas or charcoal, then use both, if you like hard wood, use it. With the three fuel system the choice is yours. Whichever you choose, you are sure to get plenty of power.  These grills can easily heat up to over 800 degrees, have redundant electronic ignition, even heating, and rarely flare up. In addition Kalamazoo offers excellent customer service and a lifetime warranty on all their products.

      Overall, if you’re in the market for one of the most outstanding grills made, this is a serious consideration. It will last decades, puts out more than enough power, and has the versatility of three fuels in one.
