Weber calls their Ranch Kettle Charcoal Grill a "Weber kettle on steroids" and we won't argue. If you find yourself feeding crowds, there is a lot of cooking surface to work with here, 1,104 square inches to be precise. This is the big unit they use at the Weber BBQ restaurants.

Char-Broil has done it again, literally. They released different versions of this basic design before. 2-in-1 one is the prettiest, although functionally a bit of an ugly duck. Even though early adopters of Hybrid seem pleased, one has to wonder why it keeps disappearing from the catalog.

We do not like or recommend cheap offset smokers like American Gourmet. Yes, the sticker price is low, the big horizontal drum looks like your BBQ dream come true, and if you don't mind spending time and money for parts, (not to mention ruined meat), you may eventually get one to work OK. But they are a nightmare for a novice and by the time you add your hours and out of pocket expenses... Read More

Char-Broil's Combination Charcoal and Gas Grill is yet another entry into the increasingly crowded gas/charcoal BBQ combo cooker arena. A small gas grill with three 12,000 BTU burners on one side and small charcoal grill on the other. The gas side includes a flush mount 12,000 BTU side burner. Charcoal side has a hand cranked, adjustable tray that moves the coal up and down for good... Read More

Char-Broil's Gas2Coal Grill is a new iteration of a design they've explored since the late 1990s. It is a low cost 3-burner gas grill with a charcoal tray that rests above the burners. Char-Broil intends to provide a gas grill and charcoal grill experience for one low price under one hood. Gas2Coal is bigger than their previous 2 in 1 Hybrid Grill and features an improved charcoal tray... Read More

Char-Broil's Silver Smoker, for some strange reason painted black, is extremely popular because it is inexpensive. It is cheaply constructed and rusts easily. It leaks smoke around the chimney and doors, and rain gets in around the chimney. It has 738 square inches of cooking area, enough for about seven slabs of St. Louis cut ribs. Because it is not as tight as the more expensive... Read More

About the only good thing we can say about the Char-Griller Smokin' Pro is the price is unbeatable. MSRP on this is way inflated. You can easily find these for substantially less. Many wide-eyed first time smokers, including me, thought it made sense to buy this tin can as a starter model to learn what BBQ smoking is about before moving up to a more expensive cooker. The problem with... Read More

Char-Griller's Table Top Charcoal Grill is the firebox to their popular BBQ offset smokers on legs. It has a charcoal grate on the bottom and a cast iron cooking grate on top. The charcoal tray rests in a drawer that slides out via a handle on the right side. Although these grills are popular and inexpensive, we suggest you consider Weber's Jumbo Joe Portable Grill instead. Weber's... Read More

The Cobb Premier Portable Charcoal Grill is a unique stainless steel grill. Weighing just 8 pounds and needing only 8 charcoal briquettes to cook for about 2 hours, Cobb Premier can grill (poorly), smoke (nicely), boil (just fine), fry (no prob), or bake (yes it can), although you'll need some additional Cobb accessories to fully utilize its capabilities. The problem isa that foods are... Read More

1) Please try the table of contents or the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

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.

4) If you are a member of the Pitmaster Club, your comments login is probably different than your membership login.
