Kettle to the Mettle

Grilling and chilling is a favorite pastime in America and has been since it migrated from campsites and picnic areas to suburban backyards in the 1950s. Now, more than ever, a broader range of leisure lifestyle products are having their moment in the sun. The Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Expo 2013, North America's largest indoor-outdoor living showcase, is the place to see the newest wares including smokers, kettles, grilling gadgets, outdoor kitchens and more. Here's a look.
