AT for Easier Grilling

Ten tools for grilling with or without a disability

One: Charcoal Post Grills

Post grills are ADA approved because they’re at the right height for most cooks using wheelchairs. Designed for parks, they are also available to purchase for home installation (who knew?)

Two: 30-inch Gas Grill

The Lynx Sedona ADA 30-Inch Natural Gas Grill is fabulously expensive but offers the right height and a lift-assisted hood for ease of use.

Three: Campfire Rings

The Pilot Rock Model M-32 accessible campfire ring has a flat rear panel so wheelchairs can get closer to the cooking grate. The grate adjusts to four levels between 19″ and 24″ above the ground and may be adjusted one side at a time with one hand.
