Patio Grill - Barrel Style?
Has anyone used this Brand of grill?

It would be a perfect size for my deck upstairs, BUT is it a good grill? I know grills can have their cold zones, due to their poor design and other variables that get in the way.


Thanks a bunch

Honestly, it looks about the same as (build quality and thickness) similarly priced COSs from Depot, Lowe's or Academy. I would need to see it in person to see the welds and fit along with the metal thickness (which in the pictures appears to be pretty thin).

For that kind of $$ you could get a Weber Performer. If you only have room for one grill, go with a Weber.

I would look for a local pit builder. Maybe they have something that size that would not be much more $$. I have used this guy before,, and he has something similar in size for $299. This shipping would be expensive because 1/4" is heavy but you get the idea.

Seems WAY overpriced to me - it's only 64 lbs so it can't be heavy gauge.

I'm always partial to the $20 Weber Kettle CL score. Bigger bang for your buck.

SmittyJonz 02-03-2014 03:33 PM

Even full price Weber Score. :becky:

CharGriller makes a nice grill at a good price. If you're willing to spend that money I would get a weber

Thanks for the Weber suggestions, but now that I look closer at some other units and pricing, perhaps something that give me more than one type of cooking option.

Perhaps something more of a smoker/grill would work better for the money?

Has anyone used a smoker/grill? I know they say it's a grill but will it get hot enough to actually grill what I need?

Thanks all for the awesome responses!

I use a Weber 22.5 OTG with homemade smokenator plate for low and slow cooks. You can't go wrong with a kettle.

Wait a minute! Putting a coal or wood burning cooking unit on a deck is about as smart as storing gasoline under your kitchen table. They call them PATIO units NOT deck units.

Go to Walmart buy a $99 Weber Siver 22.5", 2 $6 perforated pizza pans, a $10 pair of Tin Snips, a $10 Charcoal Chimney , a Bag of a Stubbs Charcoal and a Bag of Hickory Chunks and you are set. :biggrin1: if you just need to spend more $ send me the savings.
