Only minor change I made was to pickup some stainless screws and nuts at the hardware store to assemble it. Otherwise, it's great. Packing was very nice and helped protect everything well during shipping. The whole grill just speaks of quality. This will be a lot better to use than the previous huge ugly stainless BBQ that took up far too much space, for far too many years, on our deck.
I'll attach some photos of me taking it out of the box, so you can get a feeling for what arrives and all.
Keep it oiled and it will get easier to clean with use.
I've used both lump and briquettes in it, both work well.
FOR QUICKER COOL DOWN,FUEL SAVINGS, AND LESS ASH!
Since it has no lid and dampers to smother out the coals.
After food is cooked, remove grill grate with Lodge Glove, oven mitt or tongs. Use a small fireplace shovel to scoop out the remaining hot coals. Place hot coals into an empty #10 can and snuff them out with a metal lid or cover. This way the remaining coals are spared for future use and the grill takes no more time to cool down than a cast iron Dutch oven. You'll have less ash to dump too. The used coals can be mixed in with a few fresh ones on the next cook or you may choose to wait until the can is full, and you'll have just about enough for a chimney worth, which all the fuel this little grill requires.
FOR EASIER CLEANING;
The bolts will fit either way, nuts to the inside or nuts to the outside. But if you will keep the nuts on the outside, sticking out the bottom, it will be easier to take apart later if needed for thorough cleaning. Because it is easier to attach a wrench to the nut if it is on the outside. Also ashes and grease drippings won't gum up the threads with crud. You may even want to consider replacing the nuts with wing nuts to eliminate the need for the 7/16" wrench.
My wife got me this grill for an anniversary present. Having developed a passion for cooking in cast iron, I had been eyeing it for quite some time.
Amazon has the very best price I've seen, especially with the free shipping. It came in a box unassembled, but I had it put together within five minutes. Most of the pieces simply stay in place with gravity. Only the bottom is screwed into the fire bowl.
I've added a bunch of pictures to the Amazon page up at the top that shows my grill in action. Here are some things I've discovered so far:
1. If you're going to use this grill a lot, you don't want to have it sitting on the ground. Or at least I don't with my back! So rather than finding some weather proof pre-made table, I constructed a little grilling platform out of cinder blocks and patio stones. It looks much more attractive than it sounds, and you can see it in the pictures I've added to this page. The materials cost me merely $17 and I guarantee you I have a more sturdy grilling area than anything I could have purchased.
2. Because cast iron heats evenly, the entire top grill is hot. I don't have to worry about colds spots on the grill as I've had to in the past. One of the reviewers here suggested spraying the grill with olive oil Pam, which I did and with the oil based marinade I've used, food sizzles when you set it down on this grill, just like when you put it in a cast iron skillet.
3. Speaking of a cast iron skillet, this grill is the best of both worlds. The grates of the top grill are flat on top and the slits are fairly narrow. It really is like grilling and cooking in a skillet combined. By oiling the grill before use, I've yet to have anything stick to it. And the slots are much more narrow than grills I've used in the past, so the danger of a burger falling through into the coals are a thing of the past.
4. So far, I've cooked pork chops, burgers, and hot dogs. I'll cook steaks on it this weekend. But I really like the control I get over the food. So many times with a traditional charcoal grill, I've scorched food if I wasn't paying attention. Because this is made of cast iron and because of the flat cooking surface, it's much easier to control the cooking. The pork chops I cooked on the grill were nicely browned on the outside, but not burnt and juicy inside. The burgers were perfectly done as well. It's much easier to control the fire on this grill than others I've used.
5. Be careful with perfectly round hot dogs. There's no side to the grill surface and a round hot dog can simply roll off if you're not careful. Hot dogs that are a bit squared are much easier to control, and it helps to not crowd them so that they can be turned over. I've got pictures of hot dogs cooking as well. Notice the attractive brown (but not black and scorched!) stripes.
6. My wife was concerned that the grill was so small that we wouldn't be able to adequately entertain guests. As you can see in the pictures I uploaded, I easily fit eight quarter pound burgers from Omaha Steaks on the grill. That's perfectly adequate for any entertaining that we will do, and even if we have more folks over, two or three rounds of eight won't take that long.
7. And, of course, because of it's flat surface on top, you could easily cook in a skillet or dutch oven on top of this grill without the pan wobbling.
8. To clean the top grill, I've used a stiff plastic brush and the nylon scrapers you can get from any Pampered Chef rep for cleaning a baking stone. As with any cast iron, you don't want to use soap as it can strip the seasoning or even leave a soap taste. I simply take the top grill to the kitchen sink and scrub it down with the brush and hot water. I use the scraper to get any food between the slots. It can be a bit tedious to clean between every groove, but it's not difficult cleaning.
9. It may not be clear from the pictures, but the coals sit on a removable fire grate about an inch and a half above the bottom of the grill. This allows for air flow under the coals via an adjustable draft door. As the coals turn to ash, some will fall through the grate.
10. For cleaning the bottom part below the fire grate, I've followed the suggestion of another reviewer and lined the bottom with aluminum foil to make removing the ashes a bit easier. You want to be careful not to let the foil block the vent behind the draft door so that you can have air circulating under your coals. After I lift out the ashes, I've simply been sweeping out the ash dust that remains. As with any grill you don't want to leave heavy amounts of ash in place as it can become corrosive if it mixes with moisture.
11. As mentioned above, I clean the top grill like I would any cast iron skillet. And if I ever need to, I'll re-season it in the oven. However, I don't see why the bottom part couldn't be cleaned up and then touched up with black stove pipe paint if necessary. I'd appreciate opinions on this in the comments.
12. If you're going to keep the grill outside, you must get the Lodge Sportsman's Grill Cover. See my review on that product's page, but the cover is long enough for the elastic bottom to fit under the legs of the grill keeping water out from all sides in the case of rain.
13. For travel, I purchased a couple of extra patio stones that I'm keeping in the back of my truck. This way when the grill is hot after I've cooked with it, I won't have to worry about the hot feet eating through the liner of my truck. I can simply sit it on the patio stones.
I'm thoroughly delighted with this grill, and as I said anticipate it will last me the rest of my life. That is, unless I decide that I need two of them.
