We fired up the “best gas grill in the world” Saturday and cooked for our customers. Carsten from Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet showed customers outside our Grand Rapids showroom how to cook on the Hybrid Fire Grill and the Artisan Fire Pizza Oven. Customers even made and cooked their own pizzas! Plus, our very own Erika made delicious cupcakes for everyone to enjoy. You can see in the photo it consisted of gummy kabobs on candy grates.
Thank you to everyone who attended. If you missed out, you can still see the Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet grill and pizza oven in our showrooms.

Americans have been grilling over wood and charcoal since pre-colonial times. Then, in 1958, the modern gas grill was invented, sparking a veritable civil war between outdoor cooks. Which is better – charcoal and wood or gas? Wood imparts flavor that gas on its own will not, and gas offers convenience that wood or charcoal cannot match.
Bekins is pleased to partner with Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, a local manufacturer that brings the best of both worlds to outdoor cooking.
The Kalamazoo Grill features an exclusive and revolutionary Hybrid Fire Grilling Drawer System. It is a gas grill — the best gas grill you’ll ever cook on, but it is also a charcoal grill and a wood grill. It is much more than the simple gas and charcoal combination grill that is becoming popular with its side-by-side design. The entire hybrid grill can be used for combination grilling. Simply leave the hybrid drawer empty and fire up the grill when you want to cook just with gas. Load the drawer with charcoal and/or wood and let the powerful cast brass burners get things started for live fire cooking. Either way, cleanup is a breeze with their deep-hopper clean out system that funnels down to a deep, stainless steel cleanout bin.
In addition to the hybrid grills, Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet also manufactures a complete line of outdoor appliances including Outdoor Pizza Ovens, Refrigeration, Dishwashers, Cabinetry, Warming Drawers, Ventilation, Cooktops, Fireplaces, and all the accessories.
