This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Grills Galore


Here's three grills from the Sims 3 that come with the original Sims 3 pricing and cringe worthy, hot meat catalog descriptions! I started these awhile ago with the intentions of converting all of the grills but lost interest and just finished up my favorites in order to share them instead. But if you can't get enough grills, several others have already been converted by the community. Head over to TS3 to TS2 Conversion Database under appliances and you can grab those as well.

Oh, I almost forgot. All of these come with the close lid interaction. Which just means that when you're done barbequing you'll have the option to close the lid. The resources and instructions are HERE if you have any custom grills you want to add the close lid option to.

Home on the Range Grill
  • 2 Subsets - 3 Textures
  • $1,275 Appliances / Cooking - +10 Cooking

Burger Master BBQ
  • 2 Subsets - 4 Textures
  • $450 Appliances / Cooking - +7 Cooking

  • From the Seasons expansion pack

Awesome! Thanks HW! :) The one from Generations is my favorite- if I were to walk out my back door right now and see that sitting on my patio, I wouldn't complain.
