Breakaway BBQ Truck / X-Grill
So you’ve got an outdoor kitchen that you’re pretty proud of, complete with stainless steel grill, side burner, maybe even a little fridge. That’s cool. Can you drive it to a tailgate party?
You can drive this one. With the push of a button, this entire tanker opens up revealing a traveling kitchen inside, complete with a four-burner stove, 42-inch grill and stainless steel prep counter. It’s a one-of-a-kind breakaway BBQ truck.
So how’d a truck like this get built? It just took a couple of guys with a big idea, a little bit of cash and some extra time. Ken Foster, owner of Hall Oil and grill store Breakaway Barbecue Grills in South Dennis, Massachusetts started planning the mobile grill about a year ago when he started collaborating with Gary Webb, of Gary’s Truck Equipment in neighboring Harwich. They based the Breakaway truck on an old 1987 Ford LN8000 chassis (1987 incidentally was the same year the Ken Foster founded Breakaway BBQ Grills). It cost them about $40,000 to outfit the truck with all of the cooking mods. Now, they drive their “Breakaway” BBQ Truck a.k.a. “X-Grill” around to advertise their businesses and rent it out for private parties and fundraisers. It makes about 50 appearances per year, which is about once every weekend. And yep, we’re pretty sure it would would make for a heck of a tailgate centerpiece.

This rolling breakaway BBQ truck was brought to you by the Pit Boss BBQ Tool Belt.
If you can’t afford a giant rolling BBQ Truck, a Pit Boss BBQ Tool Belt could the next best thing. It holds everything you need for the grill and most definitely makes you the center of attention. Unless of course you are standing next to a giant rolling grill-truck, but at $109.97 it’s a heck of a lot less expensive.
