Very easy assembly and they even include the one tool you need...
on July 23, 2015
After a lot of research, I ordered this grill.
I had a Coleman tabletop grill for years but I was looking something with its own stand and this is exactly what I had in mind!
Mine arrived today and I had it assembled in about 20 minutes.
Very easy assembly and they even include the one tool you need. (To attach the two wheels.)
It would have actually been a 5 minute assembly but I spent most of the time tugging on the grill to remove it from the very carefully packed and protected shipping box. But that's actually a good thing.
I have a small patio at my home and I didn't want a typical, large propane grill.
I also wanted to store it in my garage when not in use to protect it from the elements.
This grill fits the bill perfectly.
Very ample area on the grates to grill.
Seems like it can accommodate anything from a quick lunch to a small dinner party.
I've got a couple of great books on grilling and have been watching YouTube videos to learn more.
While I have grilled in the past, I want to kick my game up a notch!
Despite being made in China, this grill has a quality feel to it.
Coleman has been around a long time and clearly set the bar high for Chinese manufacturer to keep their brand reputation.
It has been a while so I started very simply for my first attempt.
Hamburgers with only fresh ground pepper and sea salt and a dash of Worcestershire sauce.
After 6 minute cook time, I let it rest in a plate covered with aluminum foil.
Result, hands down the best burger I have had in years!
I also separately purchased an instant read digital thermometer (only $10) for food safety and control over how well cooked I wanted my food. I gave some thought to analog thermometers but I am glad I chose this digital model. Far easier to accurately read.
I went to a store that sells, among other things, quality cooking accessories.
This one looks solid as opposed to the cheap looking ones at the supermarket for the same price.
This cool model snaps into a case that has a lanyard you can wear around your neck while grilling so you don't have to put it down.
A meat thermometer is a must, IMHO. I know a chef and he always has one in his uniform shirt pocket at work.
Brought the burgers up to 160 degrees F and perfection.
Needless to say, tomorrow I will not be going out for lunch or dinner.
Nor will I be heating up my house cooking indoors in the middle of the very hot summer here in South Florida.
P.S. Two easy tips to make for easier cleanup.
1) Line the metal bottom of the grill (a few inches below the grates) to catch any drippings or bits of food.
Cut out circular holes to fit the foil around the burners.
Be careful not to block the opening that leads to the grease drip tray.
2) Cut a small piece of aluminum foil to size to line the drip tray.
Cleaning it then consists of just disposing of the small piece of foil.
