The Broil King Keg 5000 is a high quality kamado cooker, at home in the backyard or hitched to a vehicle. It excels at smoking, roasting, baking and searing thin meats. While competitive brands charge extra for just about everything but the logo, The Keg comes fully equipped with stand, shelves, extender rack and a ”Multi-tool” which helps handle the grate and dampers and doubles as an...

Meathead had a chance to cook on The Braten 1000. Here is his review: This time the Obamas got it right. In March 2012 they gave the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, and his wife, a very cool gift, a $1,900 wood and charcoal-burning grill and BBQ smoker combo, made, where else, in Obama's home state, Illinois. Last time the Obamas didn't do so well. They gave Cameron's predecessor... Read More

I have cooked on a lot of charcoal grills, and my new favorite is the Hasty-Bake 357 PRO. Period. It is just about the perfect charcoal grill/smoker combo. And the 357 is large. There are 522.5 square inches (27.5” x 19”), enough for 24 burgers allowing 4 1/2 x 4 1/2" for each burger, more if you crowd them in, enough a large July 4 party. But perfection doesn’t come cheap.

Meathead loves Hasty-Bake! Here is his review: Bottom line: I have never worked with a finer charcoal grill. They may be out there, but I've never encountered them. Please do not confuse this superb cooker with the Easy-Bake Oven toy for kids! This is a real grownup serious charcoal cooker. There is nothing you can't do with this grill and it deserves a place in the back yard of every... Read More

The J-3 is a competition BBQ pit with a 28" diameter, 5’4” x 26” cooking chamber mounted on a streamlined trailer. Jambo never uses pre-fabricated pipe. The cooking chamber is made from rolled 7 gauge carbon steel. The 26" x 26" x 30" insulated firebox has a 7 gauge steel exterior and ¼” carbon steel interior. The firebox door is ¼” steel. Stainless steel hinges, handles and work... Read More

In 2017 Kalamazoo introduced their luxurious gravity-feed charcoal smoker cabinet in both built-in and freestanding models. The terms luxury and charcoal smoker rarely appear together and, to the best of our knowledge, Kalamazoo offers the only under counter, stainless steel outdoor kitchen cabinet smoker on the market, designed to fit seamlessly with their entire collection of...

Kamado Joe Classic II 18” is a well-crafted ceramic cooker that presents strong competition to other 18" models in the premium priced market.

The most striking cookers in the world may be Komodo Kamado. Their new gigantic Big Bad 32 incher is stunning to see, touch and use. Weighing in at over a half ton crated with 128 lbs. of 304 stainless steel, it arrives fully assembled, but you'll need help opening this up and getting it into position.

Lang's 36" Hybrid Patio Smoker combines their popular 36" residential smoker with a 30" charcoal grill. We always give thumbs down to those low cost combo cookers that consist of a gas grill bolted to a cheap offset smoker because each side is poor quality, neither side performs well, and you can get better equipment by purchasing a separate grill and smoker. Not so with Lang's Hybrid.... Read More
