Double-Barrel Backyard Barbecues

The Sawed-Off Shotgun BBQ is Designed for Gangster Grillers

— August 24, 2013 — Lifestyle
The Sawed-Off Shotgun BBQ is the new standard by which all barbecue grills will have to follow if they want to be considered "awesome." What makes this grill great is that it looks exactly like an oversized sawed-off shotgun and is as functional as it is fun. The Sawed-Off Shotgun BBQ was created by Randy McKnight, owner and proprietor of the Etsy store Fire Sculpture Art.

Mr. McKnight is no stranger to gun grills, having created many revolver-inspired grills. While the Sawed-Off Shotgun BBQ may look like a gun a cowboy would sport, a closer inspection reveals that this grill is as gangster as they come. A five-gallon fuel tank is in the grip and the grill also has beach-friendly wheels. All of this greatness comes at a price, however. The grill sells for $9,550 and only one is available.
Trend Themes
1. Gun-inspired Grills - There is a trend towards grills that are inspired by guns, creating opportunities for businesses to innovate in this area.
2. Functional Outdoor Decor - The BBQ market is moving towards functional outdoor decor, allowing businesses in this industry to create products that are both practical and visually appealing.
3. High-end Bbqs - The market for high-end, unique BBQs is growing, offering opportunities for businesses to create more expensive and original grills.
Industry Implications
1. BBQ Manufacturing - As demand for unique and high-end BBQs increases, there are opportunities for manufacturers to design and produce innovative grills.
2. Outdoor Decor - The trend towards functional outdoor decor provides opportunities for businesses to create unique pieces that also serve a purpose, like the Sawed-Off Shotgun BBQ.
3. Luxury Goods - As the market for high-end BBQs grows, businesses in the luxury goods industry can capitalize on this trend by creating expensive and unique grills for affluent customers.
