If you have a taste for hot cars and sizzling-hot food, the Engine Grill from Summit Racing Equipment should satisfy both hungers. The propane barbecue has the look of a modified V-8 engine, but lifting the top reveals 300 square inches of cooking surface atop the block. The two-burner grill comes with a stainless-steel grate, temperature gauge and an electronic ignition. But perhaps the coolest part is the functioning exhaust headers that actually smoke while you’re grilling up your favorite foods. A wheeled engine stand and a cloth cover are included. Fire one up for $740 at www.summitracing.com.
