2014 Toyota Tundra Tim Love Edition debuts at SEMA Show

Article by Christian A., on November 5, 2014

Chef Tim Love is well-known thanks to his Texas restaurants including Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, Woodshed Smokehouse and the White Elephant Saloon. He also loves cars and for this year’s SEMA Show he teamed up with Toyota and Divine 1 Customs in order to create a custom Tundra. The vehicle features a 27-inch Solaire grill with infrared burners that puts out 24,000 BTUs as well as a Rockford Fosgate audio system.

Moreover, the Tundra Tim Love features two John Boos cutting boards, two taps for beer and wine and cold storage e coolers but also an onboard PlayStation 4.

“My cooking is about having fun and putting a surprise twist into classic dishes,” said Love. “This Tundra is definitely perfect for my style,” he added. “It’s capable of serving up delicious food and a great time to all of my tailgating friends.”

“This ingenious build highlights why the Tundra is the truck of choice for so many hard-working Americans,” said Steve Appelbaum, Toyota’s engagement marketing and motorsports national manager. “It’s more than capable of hauling equipment to the job site during the week and then pulling tailgate duty at the stadium on game day.”

Celebrity Chef Tim Love Serves Up a Delicious Tundra for SEMA

At the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, performance is normally measured in horsepower and torque. Thanks to celebrity chef Tim Love and his build team at Divine 1 Customs, this year’s SEMA can add British thermal units (BTUs) and decibels to the mix. His Tim Love Tundra incorporates an interactive tailgating experience that features a 27” grill putting out 24,000 BTUs as well as a full Rockford Fosgate audio system.

“This ingenious build highlights why the Tundra is the truck of choice for so many hard-working Americans,” said Steve Appelbaum, Toyota’s engagement marketing and motorsports national manager. “It’s more than capable of hauling equipment to the job site during the week and then pulling tailgate duty at the stadium on game day.”

Chef Tim Love is the owner of multiple Texas restaurants including Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, Woodshed Smokehouse and the White Elephant Saloon. He is known for his innovative grilled, roasted, braised and slow-cooked meals and his Texas inspiration. Love’s unique style dubbed “urban western cuisine” has helped elevate the Fort Worth-area food scene to national prominence.

The Tim Love Tundra made its culinary debut at the college football face-off between Alabama and Tennessee at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville — in front of over 150,000 hungry fans. Chef Love amazed a throng of pregame tailgaters when he pulled out the grill system from the Tundra’s bed. The system features a Solaire 27” grill with infrared burners, two John Boos cutting boards, two taps for beer and wine and cold storage coolers. The integrated audio system pumped out music at concert-level sound quality and fans were able battle the game out virtually thanks to the onboard PlayStation®4.

“My cooking is about having fun and putting a surprise twist into classic dishes,” said Love. “This Tundra is definitely perfect for my style,” he added. “It’s capable of serving up delicious food and a great time to all of my tailgating friends.” The Tim Love Tundra will be on display from November 4-7 at the 2014 SEMA Show. The Toyota display booth (#24700) is located in the Central Hall.
