Star Wars Death Star Grill

If you went to see the new Star Wars movie in full costume, (you know who you are), if you have a collection of unopened Star Wars toys proudly displayed on a shelf, if you BBQ with tongs in one hand and a light saber in the other…have I got a grill for you! Not a lot of info available regarding specs and performance of this charcoal burning orb, but that may be beside the point. The only source we found for Death Star Grills is The Foundry in England – and they were out of stock. One or some of The Foundry’s suppliers licensed the right to produce a variety of Star Wars themed products and Death Star is in the mix.

Shiny steel dome with a round opening on the right side.

The Foundry claims Death Star is made of stainless steel, “so even if you strafed it with a rebel sausage, it’ll still buff up like new.”  It seems to have about an 18″ diameter cooking grate, so we’ll go with that. The exhaust damper is cleverly disguised as the Death Star’s Deadly Ray Gun. Not sure if any intake damper exists, but if it does, it must be located right on the bottom of the Star.

The force may be with you when grilling with the Death Star, but your friends will likely be with a neighbor who owns a Weber Kettle. Of course many buyers may purchase Death Star for display purposes only. Our posted MSRP below is based on the exchange rate of British Pounds to US Dollars on the date of this review. Free Shipping is offered for deliveries in the UK. For other locations charges from England to your front door will likely be significant.

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.
