While there is much debate over what grill is the best one to use, we really love the idea of being able to settle another grilling-related debate that has plagued us for a while: Charcoal vs. Gas. While each option comes with its pros and cons, the 5050 Duo Gas-and-Charcoal Grill from Char-Grilled is the perfect answer to settling the score between them.

Make-ahead beverages are that much easier when you have something great to put them in. We love the Hiware Glass Water Pitcher , which includes a filter in the spout to keep all those delicious things like lemon slices and mint inside the water or iced tea.
