PlaceholderHestan Outdoor 36 Gas Grill
The Hestan Outdoor GMBR36-LP is the best gas grill I have ever worked on. Period. And I have cooked on dozens of gassers. There is so much right about this innovative design I struggle to find something to criticize (but I found a few nits to pick). A big reason for my admiration is because it can produce a perfect all over dark mahogany sear on a steak equal to my charcoal grills and... Read More

Horizon manufactures excellent, tight, well-built, heavyweight, heavy duty, horizontal offset firebox cookers that carry a lifetime guarantee against burnout! They are constructed from all new, high grade steel and cooking chambers are built from 1/4" thick structural pipe to tight tolerances. Remember, heavy steel holds heat longer, distributes heat more evenly, cooks better, and uses... Read More

PlaceholderLarge black horizontal smoker with tell chimney mounted on a bright red trailer with large wheels.
The J-3 is a competition BBQ pit with a 28" diameter, 5’4” x 26” cooking chamber mounted on a streamlined trailer. Jambo never uses pre-fabricated pipe. The cooking chamber is made from rolled 7 gauge carbon steel. The 26" x 26" x 30" insulated firebox has a 7 gauge steel exterior and ¼” carbon steel interior. The firebox door is ¼” steel. Stainless steel hinges, handles and work... Read More

In 2017 Kalamazoo introduced their luxurious gravity-feed charcoal smoker cabinet in both built-in and freestanding models. The terms luxury and charcoal smoker rarely appear together and, to the best of our knowledge, Kalamazoo offers the only under counter, stainless steel outdoor kitchen cabinet smoker on the market, designed to fit seamlessly with their entire collection of...

The K750HS is Kalamazoo's mid-size model with 726 square inches of primary cook surface, three immense Dragon Burners and one Infrared Rotisserie Burner. All models were redesigned in 2012 for a sleeker, less industrial look. In keeping with their motto, "Never Compromise", Kalamazoo continues to overbuild with top quality 304, heavy gauge stainless steel. The K750 weighs about 600... Read More

The Karubecue C-60 Pit is a very innovative, wood burning smoker designed to help the greenest novice smoke meats like a wizened Texas pit boss. The smoke quality from this machine is astonishing. I call the aroma Karubouquet. At its crux is a patented Inverted Flame Firebox (IFF) which sucks heat and smoke from underneath a wood fire, not the top. Heavy smoke, laden with gases and...

The most striking cookers in the world may be Komodo Kamado. Their new gigantic Big Bad 32 incher is stunning to see, touch and use. Weighing in at over a half ton crated with 128 lbs. of 304 stainless steel, it arrives fully assembled, but you'll need help opening this up and getting it into position. The first thing you notice is how well built this zaftig sweetheart is. From the... Read More

PlaceholderLarge, long horizontal barrel smoker with two doors mounted on a rack with two large wheels on the right. A tall chimney comes out of the top right side.
Lang's 36" Hybrid Patio Smoker combines their popular 36" residential smoker with a 30" charcoal grill. We always give thumbs down to those low cost combo cookers that consist of a gas grill bolted to a cheap offset smoker because each side is poor quality, neither side performs well, and you can get better equipment by purchasing a separate grill and smoker. Not so with Lang's Hybrid.... Read More

PlaceholderLarge black boxy charcoal grill with shiny steel shelf attached to each side. Fire box door with latch is on the lower left side. A hand crank is on the right side.
M Grill's M1 charcoal/wood cooker plants a reverse flow smoker and charcoal grill under one lid. Weighing in at 385 pounds of thick 10 gauge coated steel and high quality 304 stainless steel, this versatile, heavy metal machine should hold temperature stabile and remain in service for many years. There are two choices for fuel placement: the firebox for smoking, and a separate... Read More
