Reviews and Ratings Of Grills, Smokers, Barbecue Pits, & Outdoor Ovens
Meathead loves the Cook-Air Wood Burning Grill. Here is his review: This is the coolest new grill I've seen in a long time. Although it can cook anything, it's unique design makes it the ultimate lean mean steak machine. Keen observers will note that I have recently downgraded my rating from Gold to Silver because, the more I use it, the more I recognize some minor drawbacks... Read More
Q 1400 is the smallest Weber electric with 189 square inches of cook surface. It has a dark grey cast aluminum body and glass-reinforced nylon frame. Most electrics have limited upper temp ranges, but many owners report Weber's Q electrics put a pretty good sear on a steak. Weber states their electrics reach 500 degrees, but can get hotter depending on ambient temperature... Read More

For 2014 Weber brought back the 14.5" compact version of their popular Smokey Mountain Series. WSMs are high quality, charcoal fueled, bullet-shaped smokers. They are often seen competing head to head with large commercial cookers at practically every competition. And winning. They take very little time to master, and there are a lot of tricks the experts use to produce incredible food... Read More
The Blackstone 36" Griddle Cooking Station is an interesting, low cost, large capacity cook top. A stainless steel version is available and it is also offered in a smaller 28" size. The four 15,000 BTU generate enough sizzle to do some serious cooking, although it may not stand up to heavy professional use. Indeed the warranty is voided if used for commercial or rental purposes... Read More
Bravo Sports says this item has been discontinued as of 2014. Too bad, it is a unique and well thought out product. Many retailers are still selling them so who knows what the future may bring. Here's our review... Read More
The Brinkmann Roadmaster is their Dual Function Charcoal/Gas Smoker and Grill on wheels. We don't care for these combo grills because we feel you can usually get better equipment by purchasing a separate charcoal and gas grill, and if one of them drops dead, it's not joined at the hip to the other...

Cabelas's 7 in 1 Cooker/Smoker is made by Masterbuilt and is a Cabela's branded version of the Masterbuilt 7 in 1 Smoker and Grill. It can use either gas or charcoal as fuel. It converts into a brazier or a tripod for boiling water or deep frying and it comes with a 10.5 quart aluminum pot and basket. Like most bullets, it uses an enamel water/drip pan to put moisture into the cooking chamber... Read More
The Char-Broil CB500X Portable Charcoal Grill is a scaled down version of its big brother, the 940X. The 500X has the same black powder coated steel body, pre-seasoned cast iron grates, adjustable height coal grate and front access ash/coal door... Read More
Char-Broil's Table Top Gas Grill is a burner in a box. Lightweight and inexpensive with a single, 11,000 BTU burner that is fueled by 16.4 oz. or 14.1 oz. propane cylinders. Lightweight is the operative word which is good for portability, not so good for durability. Thin metal all the way around, chrome plated grate and wire legs that fold up to secure the lid for easy transport... Read More
