Barbecuing is by nature a social experience, however most grills are not designed to accommodate this aspect specifically, prompting acclaimed designer David Rockwell to create the 'Caliber Grill' -- a social grill that encourages interaction.

The designer believes that the standard grill lid separates the chef from their guests, so the team behind the design created a hood that falls into a designated slot, resulting in an unobstructed view between parties. In addition to the re-imagined covering, this grill also provides dinner guests with an integrated table, which is perfect for setting down plates or wine glasses as one eats and chats, making it more convenient to stand next to the chef as they cook.
