PlaceholderLarge black boxy grill mounted on four legs with four wheels and a shelf attached to each side. A chimney is at the left side top. The lid has a shiny steel handle and there is a hand crank at the lower right side.
A lot of people like this Lowe's exclusive grill*, so we went to kick the tires and were sorry to find it is about as flimsy as flimsy gets. It's so cheaply constructed that it made the POJ Char-Griller on display next to it look good. The dampers were rickety and out of line with the vents in the body, there's no way this thing can control air and heat well. On the plus side, it has an... Read More

PlaceholderBlack bullet shaped upright smoker with domed lid. There are handles on each side and on the lid. A small shiny steel door is located in front.
The Master Forge Charcoal Smoker/Griller, like the notorious El Cheapo Brinkmann line, is a low cost bullet smoker aka water smoker. Like Brinkmann bullets, this Master Forge smoker is tough to use. Charcoal is burnt in a pan with holes running along the side.  No charcoal grate is included to raise the coal off the bottom of the pan, and no dampers are included either. The poor design...

On October 8, 2015, Brinkmann filed for Chapter 11 under the US bankruptcy code.  The Brinkmann 28" Barrel Style Charcoal Grill is a generic device offered in similar versions by other manufacturers. This one is smallish and stripped down to the BBQ basics. It has an adjustable height charcoal tray, removable ash pan and porcelain coated steel grates. Although these grills are popular,...

On October 8, 2015, Brinkmann filed for Chapter 11 under the US bankruptcy code.  With no lid or dampers to control heat, the Brinkmann Go Grill Portable Charcoal Grill is only suitable for thin meats that cook fast like burgers and steaks. If that's all you plan on cooking, the 17" diameter chrome plated steel grate provides a fairly large cooking surface of 226 square inches for 30... Read More

PlaceholderBlack grill mounted on a double door cart with shelves on each side. It looks like a gas grill but has no control knobs. Instead there is a rectangular door where the control knobs are typically placed.
On October 8, 2015, Brinkmann filed for Chapter 11 under the US bankruptcy code.  The Brinkmann Professional Single Zone Charcoal Grill is a Home Depot exclusive for under 200 bucks. Standing nearly four feet tall and a little over five feet wide, it is powder black, features 2 side tables, has 576 square inches of main cooking surface and 202 on the warming rack. That's enough main... Read More

PlaceholderBlack rectangular Charcoal grill with a curved lid mounted on four legs and four wheels with a lower shelf. It has a shiny steel handle up front and a round shiny steel adjustable vent on the left side.
Char-broil's 30" Charcoal Grill provides ample capacity with 527 square inches of coated cast iron cooking surface. There are several charcoal BBQ grills from different manufacturers that have similar features: adjustable height charcoal tray, front access door to tend the fire and slide-out ash tray. Char-Broil includes fold down side shelves with integrated tool hooks. The basic frame... Read More

PlaceholderBlack cube with two front doors latched shut with shiny steel latches. A triangular plate on top reads "Onyx Oven".
THE ONYX OVEN IS DISCONTINUED AND HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A SIMILAR CHARCOAL CABINET SMOKER CALLED SHOTGUN BBQ SMOKER. This cabinet style BBQ smoker looks good on paper, but we never laid hands on one. It is double walled with insulation in between (like a refrigerator), very lightweight (only 83 pounds), and it looks to have heavy hinges, heavy latches, air tight doors. It can low and... Read More

VIDALIA IS OUT OF BUSINESS. The Vidalia 628 is their mid-size cooker: unlike any other on the market. The unique design has two 20,000 BTU burners on the left direct side and a large water pan on the right indirect side. Air gets pulled in from the left by the gas flames, convection heat naturally moves upward and is deflected back down from the hood where it exits out the right exhaust... Read More

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
