Have you ever made chicken breast on a George Foreman grill? I have owned one of these grills for years, but the only thing that I ever made on it was burgers. I intentionally avoided preparing chicken breast on the grill because I was afraid that it would stick and be difficult to clean.
People love saving money. There’s certainly no question about that. Over the years, many companies have attempted to exploit this trend by offering inferior, low-cost alternatives to a popular product. In some cases, these low-cost alternatives offer nearly all of the same features as their more expensive competition at a fraction of the price. In other cases, however, the products are similar in appearance only. Buyers of these cheap knockoffs essentially wind up cheating themselves out of the purchase price. In the case of Traeger vs Pit Boss, things aren’t quite as black and white.
My first impression upon reading about the Kalamazoo BBQ was, are you serious? I scoffed at the notion that Kalamazoo grills are worth their price. Names like Gaucho Grills or Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire Grills do not sound expensive. In fact, during my first glance at the prices, I overlooked a zero. I thought, you know, $2,800 is reasonable for a heavy-duty grill powered with wood or gas.
