Summer's always a time for new beginnings, and never more than this year, amirite? This summer also marks the return of no-strings-attached (as in mask strings) backyard cookouts. But before you draw up any invitation lists, isn't it time you did something about your barbecue grill? Maybe it's not (yet) a dusty, rusty shell of its former self, with carmelized globs of fat clinging to its once-shiny stainless steel racks, but it could sure use an upgrade, and you could sure use to look like you've got some game when your guests show up to get their BBQ on.

Well, here's your chance. Lifesmart and HSN have combined for the sale of the summer on a legendary kamodo grill. These classic cookers have been known to run well into four figures, but HSN is now offering a fully accessorized state-of-the-art 18" model for just $430, which is nearly half off their already incredible $811. And that $430? Well, you don't have to fork it over in one lump sum; HSN offers the option of five Easy Pays of $86, with no interest. But, much like summer itself, blink and it's gone.

Kamodo style grilling has been around for hundreds of years in Korea and Japan. The secret of kamodo grills is their ceramic shell, which absorbs and holds heat evenly, making it the right choice for high-temp methods like roasting and searing as well as low-temp applications like smoking and warming.

This model from Lifesmart features a two-tiered rack system that allows for grilling, baking or roasting on the lower rack while already-done items can stay hot and succulent up top. Oh, and that top rack is hinged, allowing you to move items easily and safely from one level to the other. Tiop and bottom air vents allow you to precisely monitor your temp, visible in the thermometer in the lid. All in all, you'll have 480 square inches of cooking surface at your disposal, enough to keep the hungriest of hordes sated with burgers, dogs, ribs, chicken, kebabs or whatever else you might have on the menu. 

While it's a beast inside, the Lifesmart 18" Ceramic Kamado Grill is a beauty on the outside, its glossy, pebbled exterior a veritable objet d'art for you backyard. We're showing the blue variety, but it also comes in black, charcoal, taupe and turquoise.

This 'cue features a pair of bamboo side shelves to keep your utensils at hand. What utensils? The tongs, two spatulas, fork and basting brush that come with this deal! It also includes an electric starter to get your charcoal going, and a cart with locking casters for easy maneuverability and storage. Also helpful with storage? The sheath cover that'll keep your kamado clean and dry during its summer downtime and winter rest. 

Remember, this is a limited-time offer. But those delicious dinners and alfresco feasts you'll prepare for friends and family this summer and beyond? The limit on those is the sky.
