By now you should know we love outdoor entertaining and backyard parties – with the exception of only a few inclement months of the year you can find us grilling, snacking, mingling and watching movies outdoors. Second to actually hosting or attending a party, we love to seek out and share unique items to make our outdoor entertaining easy and stress free – accessories, tools, recipes and décor.
One of the factors that makes entertaining outdoors so enjoyable is that you can have a party just about anywhere – the deck, patio, backyard, park and of course the lakeside. But now, we have discovered, you don’t need to be limited to land when you barbecue, because you can now have a grill party right on the water. No, we’re not talking about borrowing Uncle Stan’s john boat, throwing in a hibachi and casting off. We’re talking about a boat specifically built for a barbecue party with your closest friends.
Seriously we’re not kidding and we haven’t broken out the neighbor’s mystery party punch - we learned our lesson last weekend. Our search for the next wonderful thing for outdoor entertaining turned up the Barbecue Dining Boat by Hammacher Schlemmer. Yep, that’s right, a boat with a built in grill, table, umbrella and seating pushed around the lake by a 30-watt electric trolling motor. There is enough room on the BBQ for 10 adults, so if you decide to splurge and get one of these make sure to include the Backyard Simple staff on the guest list – we will be forever in your debt…Speaking of debt, the boat comes with a price tag of $50,000.
