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.
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.

The Foundry is a UK sales operation located in Banbury, just north of London. They specialize in all types of gifts, gadgets and toys. Foundry leapt from hyper space and grabbed our attention with their new Death Star BBQ Grill. Death Star is hard to find in the USA, so if you need to get your Star Wars fix right here, right now, we discovered a fun little TIE Fighter Ship Gas Grill readily available on Amazon, (see below).

A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs
Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.
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 Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
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.
Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.
