Its a shame to see all the negative comments about such a great little flat top. Then as I read, I see they're made by folks who don't really know how to use it, or care for it, or had a problem that really wasn't the products fault. Ive had it for 6 months now, and its fed about a thousand folks so far and operates exactly as it was intended and advertised. If you're in the market for a good, "run of the mill" flat top, this is as good as any and at a reasonable, competitive price.
I love my new grill. Huge cooking surface and it heats very evenly. Took me and a friend all of 30 minutes to put it together. I would have given this 5 stars, but the packaging was really poor. There are 2 flimsy metal support beams that got bent. They should have been carefully packaged in additional styrofoam and in it's own box to prevent this. I was able to bend them back into place, but they could have easily been broke during delivery. Package was also delayed a day or 2, but that ... typically falls on FedEx/UPS...so no biggie with that. Also, the drip pan doesnt really catch all of the grease. This can easily be fixed though. Aside from that, great grill for the price.
Bought this gill at the store and decided to have it delivered and assembled. If ordered online a $99 delivery fee. By buying at store and having it assembled and delivered for only $119. The best idea ever, they called 2 days prior to delivery and the contractors were polite and efficient, they left no mess and the grill was ready for use. I have had grills costing 3 times as much and gotten less than half the value and performance.
We bought this grill last week and were very excited to get it together and start using it. We haven't actually cooked on it yet but let me say it was a monster to assemble!!! Some of the parts look similar and since they aren't labeled, it was tough to put together. It took me and my husband about 5 hours to assemble!!! My advice is to take all your parts out and make sure you know what they are before you start, good luck!!
Perfect size! Saves on charcoal! Heavy duty grates! I have been using it 3-4 times a week for over 3 years!
Best grill I've ever had! Cooks great! Charcoal cooks a long time with the small barrel design! Yet it's plenty big enough to cook out & have friends over! 5 stars!!!
Owned now for four months. I grill almost everyday in the warmer months, so this grill has been put to the test. Cant beat for the price! I chosed this grill since it was american made. I smoke on it alot on the weekends using the snake method. I give it a 4.5 out of 5 overall Pros-American made, price, size-tall lid to fit chickens and pork butts(fits two) works amazing as a smoker, very light and easy to transport Cons- short, bottom charcoal plate needs replaced with grate and moved up ... closer to grill grate. charcoal chokes itself out badly And has trouble searing.
i had the small old smokey and enjoyed cooking on it for several years so I decided to go larger
I was so excited when I bought this grill but the grilling grates rust and all three of the burner covers over the flame fell apart they crumbled and Academy had no replacements because of the size they are hard to find
The grill and smoker are great except when you remove the stickers, it removes the paint and finish from the grill
It doesn't last forever but it can really cook up a storm.. BEST VALUE AROUND!!!
We got his item out of the box and had to laugh a little, oh it's 2 wash tubs with legs on it. Yes, it looks funny. We were a little skeptical but we built the grill easily in minutes, lit the Old Smokey up with Royal Oak Hardwood Charcoal in 15 minutes and it was ready to cook in 30 minutes. It did a very impressive job. We bought it to fir our Nambe Pizza stone and make pizza outdoors. It got hot enough so each pizza cooked in about 7 minutes. You could easily have a good assembly line going ... with high heat for 30 to 45 minutes. I thought it was just a smoker, not so. The size is great to use for a portable fire pit as well. Well worth every penny.
A perfect choice for a Barbecue with my family and friends!
excellent to go on my boat..stores easily..uses very little charcoal..weber quality...
First I need to say how great the service at the Tuscaloosa, AL Academy is. Went in on July 3rd looking for a grill. Being the day before the 4th, I didnt expect the selection to be good. Found the grill I wanted on their display board, but there wasn't one on the floor. An associate asked if he could help me right of way. He found the one I wanted in the back, loaded it in my truck and even asked to tie it down for me. I was in and out in about 30 minutes. Great service. The grill is great. ... Perfect for what I needed. Seems to be of good quality. Big enough to grill alot or put charcoal to one side and grill a little. Grilled burgers and hot dogs on the 4th and just grilled some fillets and chicken. Had no complaints from family, must have been pretty good. Thanks Academy for the great service and products.
I bought this grill 3 weeks ago. Today I used it for the first time. The grate that holds the charcoals the slots are too big causing the charcoal to fall through the grate half burned. Also if you put charcoal that is small lumped they will fall right through the grate unburned
I have the large Blackstone and very well pleased but I seen this smaller one at Academy and was impressed so I purchased. I cooked on it several times and was NOT pleased with the coating on the griddle surface, being experienced in cooking on a different brand and a collector of antique cast iron I am very experienced in seasoning cast or steel. I took the griddle top and had it sand blasted, then seasoned it 3 times with Flax Oil and a final seasoning with Crisbee, now it is as non stick as ... Teflon. If you purchase one try to remove this non stick surface that they put on. You will be better satisfied after the fact.
Just brought his griddle yesterday. Don't think that I will regret this purchase. Already cooked hamburgers, hot dogs, and steaks on it. Breakfast in the morning! Also easy clean up.
I received this grill two weeks ago, and I am pretty pleased so far. It is very well constructed, and has great weight to it. My only complaint is that the charcoal grate sits almost 10 inches away from the food grate; therefore the cooking surface does not get that warm. I simply had to purchase some bricks to bring the heating grate higher to create a much hotter cooking surface. Very simple fix, and I love everything else thus far.
I have be very please with this grill. Enough weight to the material to hold up over time. Very large cooking are on the bottom shelf. Top grate could be used for vegetables or such not really and option for any thicker.
I loaned my other one to my brother who works in the oilfields for daily grilling. We have grilled everything in it! Very easy! Very fast set up! Move it where you want! Getting it today!
I'm so glad we made this purchase. My kids are very involved in sports and so we find ourselves having after game cookouts instead of going to eat and spending way more money. Everyone just pitches in and we do burgers and hotdogs or even BBQ sometimes. very convenient, easy set up and take down. Can't say enough good things. Also take out to lake when we take boys fishing for a day.
I bought one last summer. It's very nice and sturdy. Mine was stolen so I will be getting a new one soon. I like the fact that you do not have to put it together just unfold and ready to go. I highly recommend this grill for those who like charcoal grills.
I bought this because it was a good size to cookout for the family and it's ability to fold up and not take up a lot of space behind my pickup and wasn't disappointed. Did a great job at the island!
My husband just bought this grill for Camping (: We love it ! It fits perfect in our Camper and is plenty big for us !!!!
My grill hit the 550 mark on the outside dial in less than 10 mins when I was doing the first burn. Cooks great. I always cook low and slow, and I'm going to have to learn this grill. It has a TON of cooking space!
Fathers Day Gift looks fantastic. You know you get what you pay for is all I can say. I am happy with it, it's what we can afford. If you want a Mercedes buy a Mercedes. Good value
I've always wanted a kamado grill but I could never bring myself to buying a big green egg. So I started shopping around and with all of the add ons you get with this, it is clearly the best value out there. It even includes the ceramic deflector plate which is $50 with other brands. The side shelves are unbelievably sturdy. Much better than big green egg and others. Looking forward to years of use!!!
Holds heat extremely well and uses hardly any charcoal or wood. Eight pieces of charcoal allow you to get hot enough to grill 4 large steaks! The side shelves are terrific! They hold a lot of weight and look really nice with their burl wood look.
I bought this because of the colors and the price.I was tired of wasting money on grills.Only to have them be rusted on the inside the next spring.$15. This grill is pretty lightweight and has a small cooking space. I wouldn't recommend for a large gathering, unless you get two.But it's perfect for a small family or few guest.
Perfect thanks it's small but it gets the job done and save money
This is an awesome mini grill. I absolutely love how it cooks the meat. It cooks fast an actually has room for more meat than I thought. This was a great purchase since i live in an apartment complex and there really is no place to bbq in an older complex. I also took it to the park and bbq'd hot dogs on the spot. Great buy.
Bought this for my condo in Hawaii and it's amazing to carry to the beach. Very light and does it's job. Academy is the best sports store in America. Need to have stores nation wide.
I bought this about 5 months ago because I really wanted to grill burgers and drink a cold beverage on a cool, fall night. Seeing as I didn't have the money at the time for a fancy schmancy grill, I decided to take a risk and go with this one. I honestly figured it would last 2 or 3 uses because it was so cheap. 5 months later and at least 15 to 20 uses and it is still going strong. Super easy to assemble and it works well! I figured it would have fallen apart by now, but nope! I plan on ... getting apart gas grill one day, but I'm keeping this thing for those times we want charcoal and for a camping grill! Well worth the money if you are going for something simple arena don't have a lot of money to spend!
It grills great was easy to put together & It worked perfectly just big enough for the grilling I do for me my wife & 2 boys. Just the right height I can seat in a chair to flip meat or do it standing up. It was a great anniversary gift from my wife very pleased with it
