Tow this crowd pleasing 6-burner beast where you like. With almost 1000 square inches of cooking surface and a large 46″ x 21″ hood this baby is feast capable and can even BBQ a whole hog. Two insulated stainless steel ice chests, two large stainless work shelves and dual 30 lb. propane tanks.
Crown Verity makes professional, heavy duty no frills, frumpy, but serious 304 stainless steel grills aimed at commercial users. These cookers are industrial strength, even industrial supply giant Grainger carries Crown Verity equipment.
CV makes a wide variety of cookers from drop in and freestanding residential models to gigantic professional trailer mounted systems with built in sinks, burners and ice chests. They claim their cookers preheat in six to seven minutes. Pros love the fact that they can power wash their catering cookers when the job is finished. In addition to grills CV makes griddles, portable sinks, steamers, fryers and a limited selection of add-ons, like doors, shelves and rotisseries, for their built in and portable cookers.
The Verity family began making plows and agricultural equipment in the 1890s, switched to commercial restaurant products in the 1950s, then branched out into grills and portable food service in the 1990s. Available online and at dealerships across the USA.

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!
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.
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
