The 24k gold-plated barbecue

We're assuming it's a first

Depending on how you feel about barbecues, this is either an unmitigated disaster or the best thing since the "George Foreman iGrill." We're torn.

On one hand, it's a monster 'cue with quartz ignition, a vaporizer grid, six burners--not including one to heat a wok--and a roasting hood with a viewing window (gasp). On the other, according to Gizmag, all parts of BeefEater's "Signature Series 6 Burner SL4000" are plated in 24-carat gold. All of them, that is, except for the grilling surfaces. (Thank goodness level heads prevailed, at least in this regard.)

And the reason for creating this $12,500 gold grilling godzilla? "It's for the man who has everything and wants more," BeefEater says. Even we can't argue with that.
