I've always wanted one of these for the backyard! Great for steaks and great for using the dutch ovens. Course, they are not cheap and shipping kills it for me. My neighbors are moving out and Ryan is a certified welder. I'm always talking to him and when he's out front welding I'll take some beers over and learn some welding tips from him. When we have a cookout, I invite him and his dad over to get some food and some beers. He had this leftover from a job they did at a local park. He said he wanted it to go to someone that would appreciate it. PRICE: FREE! He's a great young man as is his dad. Gonna miss these guys when they move out! This thing is HEAAAAVVVVY!! It's gonna look way cool in the backyard! We will have our very own PARK.:biggrin1:

Wow, I have specified those types of grills for 30 years, that is a good looking one for sure. Gonna be a nice Dutch oven table as well.

You crossed my mind when I went over for it. I'm sure you have dealt with plenty of those in your line of work. I originally thught it was a single grate from what he told me. When I saw that it was the dual, I figured I could mod it to make one end a table for the Dutch's. It's brand new. never used. I can't wait to set it up. :biggrin1:

Wishin my neighbor would move. He is not as good a man as yours. Still wish he would move , so I could tear down his house and * "put up a parking lot" with a couple of grills like that! Then I could tailgate, without a tail and walk through the gate!

Heavy and nice..with the New verticle cooking design...................(just kidding)
I have not seen that style around up here in years as it is heavy and adjustable..
I built one into my patio fire pitt 1999, still useable but on the last go around..mostly cast iron..

Oh yeah!!!! Those things are GREAT. There's a nice park w/ waterfalls nearby that has those...I took down the manu.'s name to check into it...no surprise at the steep cost.

Congrats man! That IS the best score I've seen here, imo.

We have one at our pool! Just ask Deguerre That is where he signed his beard...(Hint pour concrete slab with bolts coming up through the concrete) for easy removal. lol we also put a penny so you could see it the year we put it in.. Also find a cover they do rust...

That's what I was thinking. Concrete slab with bolts for easy removal later on if needed. It needs a coat of paint so I'll look for a cover after that. I've already picked out the place for it. Probably going to lay down some pavers and make grilling area. Now all I need is to find one of those big steel tables you find at parks too! Maybe a giant swing set........:biggrin1:

Congrats on the grill! We have one and love it. Ours is mounted on a disc so it some-what mobile. I found the disk on the Pilot Rock website, they carry some accessories for the park model grills.

That's the company that made ours. I noticed they sell shelves for em. Might get one or just make a shelf for it. I noticed that they have a base with casters. With two kids I think I'm gonna go with the concrete slab so it doesn't tip over. Do you have a cover for yours?

Today is a good day!

I was a Park Superintendent for a number of years for a Texas gulf coast city....in your climate, you might get a long time out of it.....but it seemed like we were always replacing these in our parks because of rusting out. Ours were sold by Miracle or Gametime.

Good luck.

I'm thinking the same thing. As long as I take care of it and get a cover on it, it should last a long time. Which park if you don't mind saying?

Pilot Rock is better than Gametime or Miracle, heavier build, better welding. But, more costly. I prefer a concrete pad and bolts, versus the portable steel base, just a little more stable. You can prevent some rust with seasoning, but, they get dirty and disgusting (birds like to set on them) without a cover.

Out here in California, with moderate care, you see these units last 20 years, even near the coast, I have seen them go 10 to 15 with little problem.

What a great guy to give it to you for free! You're obviously a great neighbor, too, or he'd never have given it to you in the first place, Bob. What goes around, comes around. :thumb:

Do you have a cover for yours? I keep it under a shelter with an old Weber cover when we are not using it, that helps keep the birds off.

Very cool cooker, I still think burgers and hotdogs taste better off a park grill.
