Default STOK Charcoal Tower Grill ???????

anybody used, got, seen one?

Saw it at Home Depot last night. Didn't get a chance to really check it out. But did notice the lid was pretty heavy (solid) and it had a cast iron grate. Seems pretty solid for $130.

May have to swing by my HD at some point to check it out. Specs on it sound good, but that does not always mean it is good. Like the cast iron grate.

I don't understand the lower section. It is basically a One Touch Gold (except for the funnel shape instead of the kettle shape), but with some sort of wrapping around the lower section that I'm not sure serves any purpose other than appearance...

appeance. Well that and probably to keep you out of hte hot firebox since the grill is so tall. Would be easy to get a leg/knee on that firebox if that wrapping wasn't there.

It looks interesting, I may have to stop by HD and take a look, although I can already hear my wife if I came home with another grill or smoker.

I bought one of these grills around Memorial Day, and have used it several times since. It's a great grill. The design is unique, and despite it's bright colored, flashy design, it is very functional.

I don't know of any other grills have a buit-in charcoal canister/lighter, but this one works really well. You can even leave it in while cooking if you want a small (12" dia or so) hot spot cooking area. The grates are heavy duty, very nice. The lid feels solid with an easy to read thermometer. The tower is pretty cool, although they could have made it a little more functional with a door, and/or hooks on the inside for hanging stuff. The ash catcher thing is a pain, but not a deal breaker.


I paid $139, and HD has since lowered the price to $99. I consider it one of the better deals going for a cheap charcoal grill. Heck, the big orange lid is worth $100 bucks J

I bought one for $100. Last week I saw it was $75. So I went and talked ot the manager and got my price reduced to $75. I haven't had a chance to use it yet.

I was just at my local Home Depot and saw this for $75. I don't really need another one (I have a large and small Egg, WSM, and a Smokey Joe), but after looking at it, I couldn't resist it for that price (for what you get plus the quality of the thing, it is a great deal). I have had a few Webers (and still own 2) in the past and love them, but this one is made as well or better. It is really nice. I'm impressed.

I got one last week as an early Christmas present. Definitely the most substantial charcoal grill I've ever used! Nice cast iron grate, easy to light, effective ash catcher AND it has a pizza stone insert (others available) and simple provision for offset cooking.

As for the handsome "tower", I quit wondering "why?" and just put a few hooks on it to hold my implements. I could see making some shelves to hold the various inserts in the tower at some point..
