The BB32 is designed for both durability and performance. It is cast using refractory cements, these are the same materials industries use for all high temperature containment from blast furnaces to nuclear facilities.
This is the inside of the grill and has a dense durable refractory material. the firebox is the same material.
This is a vermiculite based insulation that is fortified with AeroGel the world's most efficient insulation.
The grill is jacketed with glazed ceramic tiles to protect the lightweight vermiculite insulation. A high tech insulation with nano ceramic spheres is used both as the adhesive and grout. This material is elastomeric and will flex as the grill expands when heated.

Some models use wifi to send both your grill and meat's temps to your smart phone. The two most popular ones are the BBQ Guru (theBbqGuru.com) and the Stoker (RocksBarbque.com)
The Handle and Latch Mechanism
The grill has an interlocking lip with a collapsable silicone gasket. This latch has a roller bearing and a two position catch. When you close the grill it catches on the first position. Firmly press the paddle towards the grill and the bearing rolls up and over the cam pulling the grill snugly closed and making an absolutely airtight seal. Click on images to enlarge.
