To move the heat source closer or further away from the food. Great for reverse searing with a simple turn of a crank. Also, lower charcoal basket height can be used for smoking.



I see the MGrills M1 not only has this feature but a dedicated lower firebox to burn logs, making it quite versatile. While this wasn't what I was looking for as a main feature, it's definitely an added bonus.

Purchased my first HB in 1996, the suburban. Still have it and going strong! I've since purchased the gourmet model in 2015 but don't find myself using it much since only two of us and haven't entertained as much as I thought I would. So, I am a verified return customer of HB. I've really enjoyed the versatility and wouldn't choose anything else when using charcoal. I probably should sell the Gourmet to someone that will get good use of it.

Anyone have experience with the Yoder?
https://www.yodersmokers.com/charcoal24x36.html

They have a 36" and a 48". One thing I am not sure of is the height from the grate to the top of the lid. Might limit what you can use it for.
Looks like it is built like a tank. They have a "comp" model as well.

I also looked at the Yoder, and yes, it's built like a tank, especially at nearly 400lbs! It has all the features I'm looking for, but I can't seem to get over the "boxy" look of it. Somehow reminds me of an odd shaped ammo can, whereas the MGrill and Hasty Bake actually look like grills.

When it comes to grills, guitars and guns.....there is no perfect one.....they all do something a little better or worse....

Not the OP. But personally, I have been looking at S.M. Grills with lids. Like the Steak Grills that Klose makes.

I had one, but sold it.



I am looking for a grill that is enclosed, which creates an entirely different effect than an open air Santa Maria style grill.

Same here but the wife says I have too many as it is. I disagree.

This is the only backyard charcoal/wood grill I've found that thought of everything. I wish I could afford it. Bobby Flay uses one of these.

I've looked at that one myself and it's really nice though fairly small. For the money I think I'd go with one of the AZ BBQ Outfitter models like the boothill

http://www.azbbqgrills.com/page-7/

Which actually would be a great choice for the OP other than it's outside of the budget

The Klose Grill Chef is an awesome pit, but is also outside of budget. This is what I would go with (20x42 version). Link is for the 36" version.

Also check out the Kingman with lid. Combines best of both worlds. You get a Santa Maria with v-channel grates and with ability to convection roast with the lid.

@ Moose - its a bit above your price range, but the build quality is fantastic on par with LSG.
