Summer has finally arrived, and to give a special spark to picnics and backyard parties, now’s the time to replace those old rusty grills with shiny new ones. Either gas or charcoal, Hinda’s got each option covered, offering both types of outdoor grills from Emeril for inclusion in incentive merchandise programs.

Emeril Gas Grill - EG300

With its porcelain coating, the Emeril Outdoor Gas Grill resists sticking and staining. Add in its four burners, which reach a searing 48,000 BTUs combined, and this gas grill delivers power and balanced heat circulation. With 589 square inches of cooking space, meats and vegetables can be grilled together.

The gas grill has multiple stainless steel plates to catch grill drippings, serve as burner drip guards, and channel grease neatly into the drip tray. There is a 150-square-inch electroplated steel warming rack; two side-shelf prep areas with beverage storage, dry storage, and a foldout cutting board; and condiment and paper towel caddies, plus four accessory tool hooks. MSRP: $849.95

Emeril Charcoal Grill - EC240

Slightly smaller than Emeril’s gas grill, the Emeril Outdoor Charcoal Grill features a 424-square-inch cooking area that is still large enough to prepare multiple foods at the same time. It’s made with heavy-gauge steel with a porcelain-coated firebox and high-temperature coated paint.

Four heavy-duty legs add stability on uneven surfaces, including grass or decking. The under-grill storage area accommodates a bag of briquettes, the receptacle holds ashes from two grilling, and the numerical thermometer displays approximate grill temperatures from zero to 600 degrees. MSRP: $249.95
