Blast your tunes on the BBQ

Hot dogs and Chili Peppers--summer can't be far off


If you can't afford Manny Ramirez's grill (or even his neighbor's), fear not: Stainless steel and BTU levels aren't everything. For one thing, we're willing to bet that it doesn't play music.

That's right, you too can be the owner of what T3 calls "the world's first MP3 blasting barbecue." B&Q's "Memphis Barbecue" hides a speaker behind a retro-designed front panel that sports a chrome emblem worthy of the grille on a '50s hot rod (a grille grill?). In the back is an adapter that connects to the music player of your choice.

It may not be the "Ultimate Outdoor Theater," but it sure beats the "Balcony Barbecue." Just be sure to keep the cable clear of the burners, or you'll never be able to play patio DJ.
