Gift Options For Everyone On Your List
AUSTIN, Texas – (October 20, 2010) – Austin residents looking for red-hot gift ideas for 2010 that are “outside the box” simply have to check out either of the two area Barbeques Galore locations for inspiration. The company has released a list of some of the anticipated best-sellers for the 2010 holiday season and ideas for everyone on a shopper’s list.
For the technology lover:
Crossray©, a cutting edge cooking technology that uses infrared heat to cook food more evenly and in less time. Crossray uses 35% less gas and emits 50% less smoke, making it the industry’s most efficient outdoor cooking system.
Crossray© is designed with infrared sear burners vertically mounted within the bowl of the grill; when heated, the ceramic tiles emit infrared heat that far outperforms the direct heat method of cooking found in traditional gas grills. Each burner is angled onto the cooking surface so the heat overlaps, creating a perfectly even temperature inside the grill, eliminating pesky “hot” and “cool” spots found on a traditional grill. Crossray© models include the TGrill ($999) and Odeon ($999 and $1499).
Totum HLS, a revolutionary outdoor heater that combines infrared heating technology, LED lights and iPod connectivity in one sleek package. It’s an entertainment center that uses infrared heating technology to warm the entire space in a 16’ diameter. The Totum HLS is completely portable, using liquid propane to power the heating elements and a rechargeable battery pack for the lights and speakers. Plus, up to 32 units can by synched together with one iPod. ($999)
For the small-space dweller:
eGrill is the latest innovation from Barbeques Galore, a tabletop electric portable barbeque perfect for small apartments or patios. Powered by electricity, the eGrill is inexpensive to run, easy to use and convenient. With its lightweight and portable nature the eGrill is also great for camping trips and vacations. Unlike traditional electric grills, the eGrill uses halogen tube elements which emit intense radiant infrared heat, getting hot enough to cook steak within minutes, and large enough for a small family. ($199)
For the gourmet:
The Cooking Experience at Barbeques Galore in Bee Cave offers hands-on instruction with classes ranging from Jamaican Barbeque to Cooking with Tequila. ($40-$60)
Great Grilling Accessories are perfect to create the ultimate at-home grill experience – Barbeque cooking tools, grill toppers, prep tools and even tasty rubs are great choices. ($5 – $100)
“Barbeque is not just a summertime experience in Austin; it’s perfect all year long, including holiday dinners and a weekday family feast,” said Julia Connell, Director of Marketing for Barbeques Galore. “Outdoor kitchens continue to explode in popularity and there are a wide array of gift choices for the people on your list who love to cook and dine al fresco,” said Connell.
Barbeques Galore has two locations in the Austin area: 5601 Brodie Lane, Suite 1200 (Sunset Valley area) and in Bee Cave at 12918 Shops Parkway, Suite 500 (in The Shops at The Galleria).
