SCREENBID SELECT – ICONIC!
Tuco’s grill is one of the most iconic props in Breaking Bad. In a show filled with bad guys, Tuco Salamanca stands out as especially nasty. Early in the show’s first season, the violent, drug-addicted meth distributor beat one of his own men to death in front of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. As famous as Tuco was for his volatility, he was just as famous for his grill – the jeweled cap he wore over his front teeth. In fact, the second episode of the second season is called “Grilled,” just for Tuco. Unfortunately for Tuco, the episode was the bad guy’s last appearance on Breaking Bad, because in it, DEA Agent Hank Schrader shoots him to death. Later in the season, Hank’s DEA colleagues give him Tuco’s grill, encased in acrylic, as a souvenir. The grill, sealed in acrylic, is among the most famous props in all of Breaking Bad. This iconic, screen-used grill will immediately become one of the most treasured pieces in any collection.
