Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, March 14, 2013
ORLANDO, Fla. - Dallas-based grills and grill accessories manufacturer Coyote Outdoor Living unveiled new products and enhancements to its existing lineup at this week's HPB Expo here. The company says the Coyote Centaur is the industry's first hybrid grill under $3000, featuring a double-walled, 100% stainless steel split hood with the flexibility to grill and smoke simultaneously.
The Centaur hybrid grill features two burners on one side for gas grilling and a charcoal and woodchip friendly tray for grilling or smoking on the other.
"Our vision is simple - to offer affordable, high-quality products for anyone who wants to build their dream outdoor kitchen," said Jim Ginocchi, president of Coyote Outdoor Living. "The focus of our product showcase at [the HPB Expo] this year is the new Coyote Centaur hybrid grill, bringing two common outdoor barbecuing styles together under one hood. Until now, hybrid grills were a luxury item, costing upwards of $5,000. With the addition of the new Coyote Centaur, we offer the most comprehensive, affordable outdoor kitchen suite of any outdoor kitchen brand."
Debuting for the first time at the HPB Expo, the following products are new additions in the Coyote Outdoor Living suite, available now through Coyote's network of distributors.
• The Coyote Centaur hybrid grill is an affordable 50-inch split hood stainless steel grill with two separate fire boxes, offering 600 square inches of cooking space per side. It includes two high powered Coyote iBurners on one side for gas grilling and a commercial, fully adjustable charcoal and woodchip friendly tray for grilling or smoking on the other. Engineered in the U.S., the new Coyote Centaur is made from 100% stainless steel. The Coyote Centaur is available at an MSRP of $2,999 and includes a lifetime warranty on the high performance stainless steel iBurners and a limited lifetime warranty on the stainless steel housing.
