This Patriotic Grill is a Monster of Form and Function

Do you have a souped-up grill currently resting in your back yard? It probably got a lot of use this summer, with copious "oohs" and "ahhs" from your friends and neighbors. However, no matter how many trinkets you have affixed to your mega-grill, it probably pales in comparison to this roving, and ridiculously patriotic, monster grill.

The grill is the brainchild of Destination America, Ball Park and television host Patrick Norton. What makes it so super? Well, for one, it gets pulled along by a giant truck, features seating room for eight people and boasts over 1,600 square inches of cooking surface. Into trinkets? This thing has got them in spades, from kabob and rib inserts, a veggie grate, stainless steel cooking rods for searing, heavy duty 12-gauge flame stabilizing grids, motorized rotisserie beer tap,  and, of course, a 1600 Watt Amp sound system. No grill is worth its weight in charcoal without being able to blast Country and Western out of a 12" sub woofer.

Oh yeah. It's also so patriotic it would make Abraham Lincoln blush. It features a painted table depicting George Washington riding an eagle, stars and stripes aplenty and a condiment station that doubles as a miniature Mount Rushmore. America!
