Though originally used to identify cattle herds, the practice of hot-iron branding has become an acceptable means of claiming pies as your own and calling permanent dibs on a buddy's front seat. Brand your barbecue with school spirit with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of grilling equipment branded with one of 44 NCAA team logos from The Grill Topper.
Featured on the Today show, The Grill Topper outfits tailgaters and culinarily inclined sports fans with a range of accessories to enhance grilling sessions, protect torsos and appendages, and showcase unwavering school pride. The Grill Topper’s signature metal grilling rack sears university logos and slogans from 44 NCAA teams onto the chef's chow of choice. The 550 model ($19.99) emblazons foodstuffs with a burger-size insignia, allowing customers to brand steaks, chicken, or pork with the Oklahoma Sooners' or OSU Cowboys' logo. Or opt for the sausage model ($17.99) to create a team-spirited grilled-bratwurst collage for decorating a living-room wall. Grill Toppers all nestle comfortably on the heated bed of most gas-grill racks, large-size charcoal-grill racks, and backyard lava pits. Fire-cooking gourmands can also honor their alma mater by donning bold, school-logoed Grill Topper gloves ($18.99) and aprons ($34.99) or by flipping proteins with university-unique barbecue tools ($21.99/set).
