I searched high and low to find a grill to replace my squashed Kingsford. Everything I looked at was cheap, cheesy, thin metal and expensive!
When I saw this one Amazon I was so unsure because you can't touch it before you buy it. Well, I bought it. IT IS THE SAME GRILL THAT GOT SQUASHED! Well, less a shelf on the front and side and I can deal with that.
This grill has an large cooking area and is a heavy gauge metal and is made to last. I recommend using vegetable oil all over the outside and inside until it develops a protective coating.
You will be able to smoke food in this grill without adding a smoke box, which, if you ask me, never work right anyway as they always let the smoke escape.
Spring is here and so is my new grill :)
CONS: The cotter pins enclosed in the kit look like they were designed for Barbie's Dream Convertible...they are teeny, tiny and anemic looking. I threw them away and got some REAL cotter pins from my stash and used them for the lid hinge and the wheels, one of which fell off because the teeny, tiny cotter pin fell out of it's hole while I was trying to attach the lid. The "lock nuts" included for the handle attachment don't lock. They, like the cotter pins, are pretty much worthless...back to my stash for some actual bolts and nuts that worked. On my grill, I noticed a bend in the back edge of the bottom part of the barrel which wound up binding the lid and preventing full extension so had to remove the hinge pins and manually re-bend the steel back into place so it was straight. No doubt I will need to get a block of wood and a hammer and fine tune it...which I shouldn't have to do but who wants to repack a behemoth of a grill, rent a fork lift and haul it to the UPS shipper? I decided to live with a few dings. One of the welds was off but it is not noticeable unless you are retired and have time to sit and stare at a piece of metal and contemplate millimeters. If you're busy and working you probably won't notice..much. Now, PROS: O M Grill! This thing is solid and has decent tolerances (except for that bend in the back) and fits together well. The instructions were done nicely with "exploded" views and everything as clearly labeled. The legs for example are heavy gauge bent, pipe and very solid for a base. The cast iron grates are really beefy compared to the wire ones these days in many other grills. It assembles with a Phillips screw driver and a smaller Crescent type wrench...although a rubber mallet helps persuade some screws that won't line up with a little tapping. The thermometer will be nice--looking forward to that. Overall for the quality and the size of cooking surface, etc. I think I will like getting my charcoal on once again. My affair with propane bottles is over and I am going back to my first love.
* Even though I suggest beer as a bribe for helpers, and you only need a few tools, none of them power. a beer or two might be copacetic for this project. However, use good judgement and be sure you assemble responsibly, carefully avoiding any "hold my beer moments" related to said grill. That is all. Gotta go BBQ something.
Researched and researched for charcoal bbq's and chose this one. The reviews were mostly positive and the one's that were negative were usually about this unit's 'smoker' capabilities. Well, I'm here to inform those looking for a smoker that THIS IS NOT A SMOKER. It is not tight enough and moreover it DOES NOT HAVE A SMOKER BOX attached. However, with a little 'know-how' and some 'handyman' tinkering, one could add such a capability.
OK. That was the PRO comment.
CON: The manual is NOT very clear on the installation of the lid handle.
Let me make it clear for those that might get confused.
1. The handle installed properly will NOT get hot (warm? yes) but NOT HOT.
2. Con #1 is based on the assumption that the 'gasket' is installed on the OUTSIDE and BETWEEN the lid and handle. That is as follows.
3. View from the 'Chef' position. Handle, washer, gasket and the lid with the bolt screwed on from the inside WITH NO WASHER OR GASKET on the inside!
