Check back every week for more items to put on your wish list.When you own a grill as tricked out as Scott Young's, the fireworks burn well beyond the Fourth of July. Young, director of application and database development for consulting firm PRTM in Waltham, Mass., has a 42-inch Lynx Professional Series free-standing grill on his deck just outside of Boston and talks about it as a gearhead would talk about his vintage Shelby Cobra. For a list price of more than $8,000, Young's grill came stocked with a 1,200-square-inch cooking surface, 25,000 BTU main burners, 18,000 BTU infrared rotisserie burner, dual-position three-speed detachable rotisserie (lined with 7-pound chickens), smoker tray and a dedicated smoker burner (which gives his deck a lovely birch and apple aroma). After adding dual side burners for $1,700 and a $179 vinyl cover, Young has built himself the Mercedes of grills for the price of a 2009 Nissan Versa.
