WICHITA, Kan. (April 13, 2010) - No stranger to designing motorcycles with custom finishes, increased power and chrome trim, Paul Teutel Jr. - better known as "Paul Jr." to fans of TLC's hit reality show American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior - is bringing his flair for the souped-up to backyard cookouts, camping trips and tailgate parties. This year, Teutel Jr. is pairing with Coleman, an international leader in the innovation and marketing of outdoor products, for its latest offering in portable, outdoor grilling excellence: the 10th-anniversary edition of the RoadTrip® Grill, designed by Paul Jr. Designs.

Teutel Jr. will be traveling the country with the Coleman Big Rig on the ultimate road trip, stopping at 14 locations to meet grilling and motorcycle enthusiasts as well as show off the newly designed grill.

"I was excited to partner with Coleman for the first official design project of my new company. I'm all about being outside and on the open road, so it made sense for me to partner with a leading outdoor company - and a product - that is associated with having a fun, hassle-free time outside," said Teutul Jr. "I was able to incorporate my own personal look and feel to a classic American grill and give it a sleek, user-friendly design at the same time."

An ultimate, portable grill for any road trip or backyard barbeque, the fully redesigned Coleman®Grill by Paul Jr. Designs has an MSRP of $229.99 and will feature a custom black finish with chrome accents, diamond-plate side table inserts for added stability, two fully adjustable burners for hotter, faster cooking; chrome knobs and tool hooks for infinite control, plus easy-to-use Instastart electronic ignition for matchless lighting. Finally, the grill features a fold-up stand and wheels making it easy to grab, set up, and go.

The RoadTrip® Grill Road Tour will commence on April 16th at Academy in Ft. Worth, Texas. Additional stops include Independence, Mo.; Overland Park, Kan.; Glendale, Colo.; Lone Tree, Colo.; Atlanta; Marietta, Ga.; Plymouth, Minn.; Richfield, Minn.; Cranberry Township, Pa.; Pittsburgh and St. Peters, Mo. At each stop attendees will be able to meet Paul Jr., receive autographs, enter to win a Paul Jr. RoadTrip Grill and tour the Coleman Big Rig.

"We pride ourselves in being ahead of the innovation curve to ensure that every outdoor experience is fun, simple and comfortable - whether it's to a far-off location or a backyard gathering," said Jeff Willard, Coleman's Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and New Product Development. "We are constantly re-energizing our product lineup and looking for ways to enhance our design efforts to give our customers what they want. Partnering with Paul Jr. Designs allows us to make the RoadTrip Grill the ultimate grilling experience."

Going into its seventh season, TLC reality series' American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior, will follow Paul Teutul, Sr. as he operates his Orange County Chopper motorcycle business in Newburgh, N.Y., while his son, Paul Jr., runs Paul Jr. Designs - a start-up motorcycle shop - across from Orange County Chopper's original location.
