Cajun Grill makes six variations of this heavy duty cooker. The Cajun Grill is their smallest with 468 square inches of cooking surface. It can grill, and, because it is long and narrow, it can be easily set up for indirect cooking and BBQ smoke roasting. It has a V shaped trough in which the charcoal grate sits. The charcoal can be raised and lowered, but because of the V shape, the charcoal grate is narrower than the cooking grate, so much of the surface doesn’t have coals beneath it, making for a big time hot spot in the center.
Also, there’s no way to add charcoal without removing the food. There is a removable ash pan and two adjustable air intakes in the base on either side but no chimney. The smoke exits from under the lid. The grate is porcelain coated which we I like. You can order an optional water pan, rotisserie, and thermometer. Hand welded 16 gauge steel and made in the USA. Comes with a 5 year warranty from defects in workmanship and materials. The coal tray has a 10 year warranty.
Cajun Grill is a family owned business that manufactures six heavy duty charcoal grills with a unique V shaped firebox. They are one of The Percy Guidry Companies in Lafayette, LA. As the name indicates, they are indeed Cajun. Guidry stared out in 1945 as a Blacksmith and grew to become a fairly large metal fabricator.
Sales are direct and through independent dealers.

The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.
Built around SnS Grill’s patented Slow ‘N Sear charcoal kettle accessory, this 22-inch kamado is a premium ceramic grill that brings true 2-zone cooking to a kamado.
This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
