I'm in the market for a new, first class charcoal grill. There's just me and the wife, so I want one smaller than 36 inches and I also want one with a hood or lid.
I am thinking about a Backwoods Chicken Little. Does anyone have experience with this grill?
I would also like any suggestions for other brands. I was also looking at the Hasty Bake Suburban model.
Thanks in advance.

It's hard to beat a weber kettle. I have a one touch gold 18.5" and love it. They come in several sizes large than that too.

I'm assuming your definition of "first class" does not mean something a 10 year old can load in the back of the truck??? Lots of great custom makers that have their stock charcoal grills, lots more that can customize to your specs. BGE, Primo, KJ,Akorn all make small grills. First Class all the way.
Good luck- I know you requested info on a first class charcoal grill-wait for it :-))

The Jumbo Joe is an incredible little charcoal grill with the added benefit of portability.
I picked one up from Target for $29 at end of season last summer. $59 regular price, still great value.
18.5" grill grate, you can do real 2 zone cooking, has a slide-catch for the lid, and typical Weber build.

I'll second the Jumbo Joe. I paid full price and feel like I got a bargain.

Not sure what you mean by first class, but I'll echo the notion of a Weber 22.5 OTG. When it comes to store bought cookers Webers are first class all the way IMO.

Hard to beat a weber product till they make them in china on day. :sad:

Is portability the main concern? If so, I'd buy the little WSM (if you don't want to make your own Mini for 1/4 the cost).
Your 22.5 WSM probably wants a little friend anyway. :wink:

I vote for the weber OTG I've been chasing the perfect charcoal grill for a while. I recently obtained a weber OTG and I think my quest is over. I absolutely love it and it's verapsatility.

Weber performer and you'll never look back.

An 18.5 Weber OTG is about perfect fer 2 but the extra room on a 22 do come in handy I like to spread out when I cook. If you want something Square & built like an M1a1 Abrams tanks Tejas makes a real nice grill http://www.tejassmokers.com/products...jita_grill.htm

My other grills hardly get any use since I purchased my Weber Go Anywhere Grill. I live alone; but it is large enough to handle almost anything two people would want.

Weber kettle (22,5") for sure.

Like many have said, the kettle. I suppose you could write your name on it in gold leaf which oughta boost it up to first class status :shocked:
