Meadow Creek BBQ42C Review

Share on:
Meadow Creek BBQ 42 C

A man flips a double BBQ cooking grate that has a load of chicken parts sandwiched between the two grates. He is cooking the chicken over a black grill.

The Meadow Creek BBQ42C, a scaled-back version of the BBQ42 that’s meant to be added to a trailer (or else never be moved). It is, very simply, a big black box, no lid, no handles, and a double stainless steel chicken cooking grate that you can load with meat and flip with one hand.

The box metal is 13 gauge steel and the overall dimensions are 22 1/2″ high, 55 1/2″ long, and 28″ wide. It had a 13 gauge bottom tray and 4 side pins; standard options include a charcoal pan, a cover, and a stainless steel flat grate (as opposed to the chicken basket grates). A 13-gauge lid is available as a custom option.

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.
