Customer Reviews

Not sure if it's common to all Aussie grills or just the way mine happened to be made.

I have bought two of these grills in the past 5 years. (the last one being last year) I've had Webber grills and this one stackes up pretty good against it.
Magregor
I've seen the grille before and liked it enough, so that's not the problem...It came with a dented lid and the handle was broken into a dozen pieces.

I must have spent about 1.5 hours just staring at all of the grills at Lowes. I already knew that I wanted to go with a charcoal grill, but I just couldn't help but swoon at the bigger and fancier looking grills. I kept thinking about how nice the grill would look in my back yard. The major problem however, was that the Aussie Walk-a-Bout happened to be on sale at the time for $35.00 (as others have pointed out, the price here on Amazon seems pretty steep) and at that price, I figured I couldn't lose.

I was a little fearful that I would regret getting this grill, but it turned out to be the best grill I've ever owned... ok, it's the only grill I've actually owned, but still. With this grill, I am able to prepare just about any foods that I would have ever wanted to: hamburgers, hotdogs, ribs, beer-can chicken, corn, potatoes and many more things. I figured that if I can do all of these things, what exactly would I need a grill that costs $100+ for? All the foods I make on this taste fantastic, and let me say that I am not even remotely what one would consider an expert griller. Half of the time I grill, I feel like I am just winging it, but somehow things just work out. And if I can grill great foods on this grill, then I know anyone else could as well.

And most people probably already know this, but BBQ recipes that use the Weber kettle work well with this grill as well. In fact, I haven't really seen anything done (so far) on a Weber kettle that cannot be done on the Aussie Walk-a-Bout.

Another plus was that this grill came pre-assembled and ready to use. One of the turn offs I had about a larger grill was assembling it. For some reason when I assemble things, they just don't turn out quite the way they are supposed to if you know what I mean.

This is my first summer cooking on the Aussie Walkabout charcoal grill. I've fired up the grill about 30 times this summer so it's been used enough times for me to gather a good review.

PROS:

1. The price is hard to beat - very affordable
2. Lightweight
3. Fully assembled (purchased from Home Depot)
4. Has wheels which make for easy moving.
5. Very portable - the legs fold up and it can easily fit in a car trunk or can be stored in the garage or basement.
6. Versatility. This grill has two slots to place the cooking grate - one keeps the grate closer to the coals for searing, and the other slot is about 1.5 inches higher and good for slower grilling over reduced temperature. I routinely sear my steaks and burgers on the lower setting, then after flipping and searing the other side I move the grate to the higher position to finish cooking without burning.

CONS:

1. The side vents are difficult to adjust and take a bit of elbow grease to move to the correct position. Not sure if it's common to all Aussie grills or just the way mine happened to be made.

2. The cooking grate is rather flimsy for my preference. I grill heavier items like flank steaks and smoked pork shoulder, and the weight of these things have caused the center of the grate to develop an ever so slight "bowl" shape, where the center is rounded and about a half to three-quarters of an inch lower than the edges. It's not terrible but I do have to adjust how I cook on the grill by only having a thin layer of coals near the center to prevent things from burning that are on that part of the grate.

3. The metal used for construction of the grill is rather thin.

This is by far the most convenient charcoal grill I have owned, I've used it now for 2 years and other than having to replace the ash pan---it still looks and works great. Cooking grid still cleans up easily and looks like new (after over 100 uses). Like other grills but hate having to open them when there is no hinge on the hood---this hood is hinged.

Will probably last anothet 2 years---for 40 bucks---quite a deal. Cooking surface is 18 inch square---enough to cook 8 burgers easily. Cooking grate can be set low or high--great for searing steak.

I didn't purchase my grill here, so cant vouch for any of that. But I'm an avid back yard barbeque girl, and am on my second Walkabout. This is not because of any lack of quality, far from it. I've been known to smoke a butt on Christmas eve (in Northern NY) and grill about every night in the summer, 2-3 times a week in winter. These little grills can do anything! I use mine as a personal smoker, just vent it right, use a smoker box (or packets) for the chips, and this little guy will take care of ya! It has endured tin foil beer filled drip pans, forgotten chimny starters and all sorts of weather. My only complaint is that the second one has a top vent that is a bit loose, but a little work and it's better (couple taps with a hammer!) If you are a back yard BBQ'er, and want to get into smoking, this is the best. Can't say enough good things about it!!

I bought mine at Home Depot for $40. This is the third season I'm using it. Very sturdy, easy to use, and it folds for storage. The only thing I don't like is the ash grate is hard (and messy) to clean. It is a good feature though; no bottom burns on the grill.
