We have been speculating that Weber will release a new version of their popular Q portable grill. They released a teaser video this week in the Australian market for a new Q. We also found an image of a Q+ in the same market. We’ll watch for more details as they come out, including if it will make it here to the states.
Conair acquired The Fulham Group this week, which does the design and distribution for Cuisinart grills. Conair already owns the Cuisinart brand, so this acquisition makes a lot of sense. Operations will remain the same under Conair, but the business unit will be called Cuisinart Outdoor Products.

Gozney teamed up with Brad Leone to release a new limited edition Roccbox pizza oven. It has all the specs of their other Roccbox ovens, but has a new color and details. It’s a great looking pizza oven.
Finally, there’s no article on it because I didn’t think there was enough meat there, but Grilla Grill’s parent company released earnings this week. The big takeaway was they’re moving away from being a pure direct-to-consumer brand into retail distribution. They said they’re going to start small with some retailers they already work with for their other brands.
