“it’s going to be a great grilling season this year, and there are a few outdoor cooking innovations on the market that will make you rethink everything you know about grilling,” said jim grigsby of oklahoma city.

At their retail location off north broadway extension, the company now offers customers the ultimate shopping experience based on grigsby’s personal knowledge and love of the grill industry. With the latest in BBQ grills, accessories, and gadgets he has a few favorites to get you ready for summer.

Every now and then, a piece of equipment comes along that gets even the most seasoned grilling pros excited. For grigsby, that product is the primo G420 ceramic gas grill.

“this is an introductory unit from the primo ceramic smoker line,” he said. “known for their insulated kamado style grills, this gives the moisture people long for on a gas grill without having to open up a bag of charcoal.”

“unlike metal gas grills that radiate high amounts of heat and pull the moisture out of food, the ceramic shell of the primo oval G 420 acts as an insulator to retain more heat and preserve the natural moisture and oils of the food,” grigsby said.Outdoor kitchen “it really can take your grilling to the next level.

What happens when you pair the oldest form of cooking with brand-new technology? Well, you get the grilling gadgets that take you from amateur to pro. The weber igrill is an app-based thermometer that allows you to track temperatures from your smart phone while either grilling or smoking.

“another great new accessory is the bison airlighter, a cordless lighter that will start up wood based products (charcoal, pellets, chunks) in 60 seconds or less,” grigsby said. Powered by the use of disposable butane canisters, you can truly go from zero to lit in seconds.Grigsby said

“we have so many customers who complain of lighter fluid taste, and this gadget has truly solved that problem, giving you a clean flame in a torch like effect,” grigsby added.

“sure, grilling is a method to cook your food, but it is also a way to entertain or bring the family together,” grigsby said. “so, people have expanded from having a grill in the backyard to creating outdoor cooking and entertainment spaces.”

American propane carries three major outdoor kitchen brands including DCS, lynx and blaze. All employees know the brands they specialize inside and out.

“we aim towards a more limited approach because we want to carry brands that all cover various needs in an outdoor kitchen, while also not confusing them with an over abundance of lines with virtually the same features,” he said.

“we sell the brands that we have based on which products have stood the test of time and held up to the standard of quality we expect on our showroom floor,” grigsby said.American propane

“obviously, as a grill guy, I am a fan of outdoor kitchen, but when it comes to investing in something like this, quality matters,” he said. “don’t skimp on gear. One of the main issues we seem to encounter is customers installing cheap equipment off the internet in a beautiful space. Then, they have to rip it out and replace it because it doesn’t last.” kicking up the flavor

“our favorite spices and sauces that we carry are from local oklahoma vendors,” grigsby said. “being a family-run operation, we love to see other local companies and vendors succeed.”

“we really love how both seasonings and sauces give an extra pop to whatever food you throw on the grill. One of our favorite staff picks for a sauce would have to be the gailmaro argentine sauce,” grigsby added. “made locally by the hefner family, this is a versatile sauce that provides an explosion of flavors to enhance meats, sandwiches, or burgers.”
