iGrill iPod Dock and Speakers

It just wouldn’t be summer time without a little bit of grilling action going on and it wouldn’t be a cookout without some proper tunes either. Of course, first and foremost this thing is a grill meant for cooking delicious and tender meats and burgers. Secondly it features an iPod dock that you can use to listen to your iPod through the integrated speakers. A propane tank powers the grill while AA batteries power the speakers. Just make sure not to spill anything on your iPod. [UberGizmo]
