Spark’s Smart Grill Combines The Flavor Of Charcoal With The Ease Of Gas Grilling

May 13, 2020

Category: Gear

While many prefer the smokey flavor of cooking meat on a charcoal grill, the black carbon residue method traditionally lacks the convenience and precision afforded by its gas-burning counterpart. Spark Grills aims to change that by combining the charcoal medium with an array of modern smart tech to deliver the next step in the evolution of charcoal grills.

Made from double-walled porcelain-enameled steel, the grill features a fan-controlled airflow system and a precision control knob regulating temperatures between 200°-900˚F. The grill is also paired with a smartphone app that can tell you when the grill is up to temperature, give real-time airflow and temperature metrics, and connect to and give alerts for additional food probes. The system also replaces regular grocery store-bought charcoal briquets with custom, large, flat, square-shaped, single-pieces that are made in America from natural wood and charcoal, feature an easy-lighting “ignition layer,” remain intact for easy clean-up, were developed by a biomass scientist, and are lit via the grill’s ceramic electric ignition. The company’s limited edition first run of grills is slated for a release in the near future, with pricing starting at $799. Interested parties can join Spark’s waiting list or check out its website for further information.
