This porcelain kettle might look like the same one that's populated yards since Lyndon Johnson was in office, but it's decidedly modern, mixing the ease of gas with the flavor of charcoal. The 23-incher uses propane ignition, which lights coal with the push of a button and heats quickly. Additional luxuries (briquette bin, digital timer) put it with the best we've ever tested.
