Cajun Grill Review

Share on:
Cajun Charcoal Grill

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.

Millions come to every month for high quality tested recipes, tips on technique, science, mythbusting, product reviews, and inspiration. But it is expensive to run a website with more than 2,000 pages and we don’t have a big corporate partner to subsidize us.

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.
