Best Year Round BBQ

A barbecue that holds its own against Canadian winters.

Our resident barbecue aficionado, Jason Rees, recommends looking for a barbecue that is made in Canada if you plan to grill through the winter. The Imperial model by Broil King gets top marks for technology and looks. It has a long list of trademarked features that ensure an even flame, surefire ignition and temperature control, along with a double-walled stainless steel hood and cast-aluminum end caps that retain heat and ensures great grilling, even in snowy, sub-zero weather. Bonus marks for two distinct cooking areas, reversible heavy-duty cast iron grids (one side gives perfect grill marks or flip them so you can baste with collected juices) and lots of storage room.

Broil King Imperial XL gas grill, $1,699 (propane), $1,749 (natural gas), at retailers across Canada.
