The Grilla pellet smoker sure catches your eye. We always liked Grilla, but the original MSRP of $1,600 seemed steep. We felt a premium was being placed on the cool cosmetics. In 2016 Grilla Grills made a substantial price cut and it can now be purchased factory direct for $799 with free shipping. That drew us off the fence and into the jungle. Form does follow function in some aspects... Read More

Grilla Grills’ full-sized Silverbac pellet cookers are solid, well-built and well thought out pieces of BBQ equipment. Grilla introduced their popular, industry first, vertical round pellet grill known as the original “Grilla” in 2010. Silverbac reverts to the more common horizontal rectangular grill shape, and according to their website, it has become the new “patriarch of the Grilla... Read More

The Grillery Fireplacer is a very cool indoor cooking device that turns your existing wood fireplace into a BBQ grill. The main up and down travel shaft bolts to the side of a masonry fireplace. After initial installation, no tools are required. Just drop in the lift frame and grate support arm, insert the crank wheel and go! Everything clicks on then lifts off. The main travel shaft is...

The Grillworks 36 Asador has two 18" x 19" adjustable height grates. Asadors are Grillworks most popular models with a floating firebrick wall that lines the back with removable, replaceable refractory fire bricks. The bricks retain and reflect heat while providing protection to outer surfaces. These grills are heavy, requiring a 304 stainless inner tube frame and four, heavy duty,... Read More

PlaceholderVery large contraption made of stainless steel and red bricks. A large bar connected to a crank wheels is suspended above with a roof covering all. Large storage areas can be seen at the base.
Designed to knock out both the cook and client, this spectacular machine is intended for cutting edge restaurants that want to enflame their guest's dining experience. At 135 inches wide and 1600 pounds, it is essentially a very large version of Grillwork's popular Asador with independent left and right grills and a fire cage at the center. The fire cage is a raised fire box with large... Read More

The Hasty-Bake Continental 83 Dual Finish Charcoal Grill is a smaller version of the Gourmet model that Meathead tested and declared to be the finest BBQ charcoal grill he ever worked with. To learn more, read his review of the Hasty-Bake Gourmet 256 Dual Finish Charcoal Grill. The Continental has 289 square inches of primary cooking area and an upper grate that adds another 215 square... Read More

Horizon's 30" Double Door Smoker Trailer has to be good because owner, Roger Davison (below), has one in his backyard. Davison has made high quality 1/4" BBQ pits for decades since he started Oklahoma Joe Smokers. Bigger is better according to Davison. He feels large Horizon offsets distribute and hold heat more evenly than the junior models. This big boy has 2,655 square inches of... Read More

PlaceholderHunsaker Vortex Smoker
Upright Barrel Smokers, aka Ugly Drum Smokers, have been popular for many years. In the past, most were homemade by do-it-yourselfers from a 55 gallon drum, scrounged up parts and a little elbow grease. Hence the "Ugly" moniker. But Hunsaker offers professionally made cookers that are not your father's Ugly Drum Smoker. In fact, they're downright good-looking. They come in a selection... Read More

PlaceholderSmall gray and black gas grill with shelves on both sides.
The Huntington Cast 4200 Gas Grill, (aka Broil-Mate 165154 LP Gas Grill), is a throwback to the first BBQ gas grills which began appearing in the early 1960s and are still made by American companies like Modern Home Products. Back then, cast aluminum housings were the norm instead of stainless or coated steel. The aluminum cookbox retains heat and distributes it evenly. Although the... Read More
