Napoleon’s new TravelQ TQ285X is one impressive little clam shell style portable BBQ gasser, with some unique features not found from competitors. The collapsible stand is functional and solid, even Weber’s Q Series portable cart is rickety in comparison. Large wheels coupled with quality design and construction make the 285X an all-terrain tailgater that can easily be folded up and... Read More

Oklahoma Joe’s Bronco Drum Smoker. Oklahoma Joe’s first-ever Upright Drum Smoker brings to the market a package full of features you won’t find on many smokers at this price. My Pit Barrel Cooker sells for the same MSRP and lacks many of the extras that set this drum smoker apart from the competition. Oklahoma Joe’s describes their drum smoker as versatile, and it is just that. ... Read More

The Pit Barrel Cooker is a very basic Ugly Drum Smoker, aka UDS, that has many of us scratching our heads in amazement. It provides large cooking capacity* at a great price, and produces delicious results with an ease of use that approaches the set it and forget it bliss of digitally controlled pellet smokers. This charcoal burning, 30 gallon steel drum with a lid on top and a small... Read More

The Portable Kitchen Grill is an elegant throwback resurrected from 1952. This rustproof, cast aluminum charcoal grill has a flat bottom making it easy to push the coals to one side for smoking and indirect cooking. There are adjustable dampers in the lid and under the fire. The 306 square inch cookinggrate is hinged for adding coals, and the oven can be lifted off the cart for cleaning... Read More

Portable Kitchen PK360 Grill and Smoker takes all the great elements of the classic 1952 PK Grill, tweaks and improves the design, beefs up construction and delivers one of the more cosmetically beautiful charcoal grills we've seen. With 360 square inches primary cooking surface the grill box is larger than the 300 square inch Classic model, but retains PK's characteristic flat bottom... Read More

Primo’s Oval Junior is their smallest Oval model. Primo’s claim to fame is the unique oval shape which enables true 2-zone cooking: something that standard round designs really can’t accomplish. With 2-zones operating simultaneously, you can slide foods from a cool to hot side for crisping chicken and reverse searing steaks. To further isolate the zones, Primo offers an optional cast...

Primo’s Oval XL 400 is their largest model. Kamado owners accustomed to the popular large round designs will be in awe of Oval XL’s expansive cook surface which is similar in size and shape to a three burner gas grill (shown below compared to an 18" round kamado).   Round XLs, (Extra Large), are available from other manufacturers, but Primo’s claim to fame is the unique oval shape which...

Caliber dubs their luxurious Rockwell gas grill, "the world’s first estate-scaled, 360 degree walk around Social Grill." They define, "estate scaled", as big grand and beautiful, right at home on the grounds of a magnificent mansion. There's a social element to all BBQ, but Rockwell goes a step further with a roll top lid that can disappear completely, allowing grillers and guests 360... Read More

The Saber Cast 500 is an entry level model to the Saber line of gas grills. One could compare it to Weber's Genesis II LX grills in quality and price, although unlike Genesis II, Saber is a searing machine. This 3-burner cooker has some unique features based on patented infrared designs developed by Saber's parent company, Char-Broil. But Sabers are much more sophisticated and much... Read More

The new Slow 'N Sear Deluxe Kamado is a large, 22 inch kamado built around SnS Grill's patented Slow ‘N Sear charcoal kettle accessory with the aim of creating a premium ceramic grill that brings true 2-zone cooking to a kamado. Kamados are excellent outdoor ovens and smokers, but most round kamados are difficult to set up for the essential technique of 2-zone cooking where you have... Read More
