I make fried rice, fajitas, burgers, steaks, dogs, brats, grilled veggies you name it you can do it on this grill. Clean up is a cinch just use ice when you done cooking while the grill is still hot. My only complaint is the food catch is way to small for this size grill and overflows very easily and the actual channel overflows easy as well. These need to be deeper or wider to accomadate this size grill
This grill is extra heavy duty. The grill top is 3/16" thick steel. I have cooked breakfast on it and alot of chicken,steak,shrimp,scallops, squash,zukinny,oinions,rice, you wont buy a better grill for the money. Just like a Japanese Steak house..Gets hot fast and cooks even over the whole top.
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 bought this grill because it is the only American made grill for under one hundred dollars. I ordered the Jumbo size and it's about equal to a four burner gas grill as far as grilling surface space. I do recomend that you purchase the long legs if you plan to use it at home often. The long legs are only ten bucks through Lowe's.
Perfect size! Saves on charcoal! Heavy duty grates! I have been using it 3-4 times a week for over 3 years!
Very nice little grill. I feel it is well worth the price. Very well built. The only thing I can say negative is that Academy doesn't sell or doesn't show the Bandit Grill Cover. At least not on-line.
It doesn't last forever but it can really cook up a storm.. BEST VALUE AROUND!!!
My boyfriend and I were looking for a small, portable charcoal grill for under $50 and came across this 18" Old Smokey. We gave it a try and are so glad we did! It's like a grill AND a smoker. It's lightweight, easy to use, and the food tastes great! Looks cool too. I only wish it had come with longer legs.
Bought it a couple of weeks ago and have used it a few times already. Propane side works great for a quick BBQ evening, charcoal for something with the family on the weekend, and the smoker for that brisket. So far its been amazing in those regards. You're sacrificing some grill surface space by having both propane and charcoal, but I have yet to have any problems. My biggest complaint is the amount of work needed to put it together. I did appreciate the fact that the screws all came with a +1 ... just in case, but almost everything needed assembly, and I feel some of it could have been done for you.
The grill and smoker are great except when you remove the stickers, it removes the paint and finish from the grill
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.
We bought this grill a couple of weeks ago, and are very satisfied with the product. It was delivered when promised, and was easy to put together. We have already used it several times, and enjoy the food cooked on it.
I am very pleased with my ole smokey bought a month ago
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.
This was purchased as a Christmas gift. He specifically asked for it.
I LOVE Weber Grills! I've had this one for 8 years. This kettle grill is deep enough to light without lighter fluid or a charcoal chimney by simply putting newspaper under the charcoal grate and piling the charcoal into a pyramid above it. It keeps the coals far enough away from the food that you can cook to the center of meat without burning the outside. Truly the best grill in this price range!
I bought this article a month ago, and from my own opinion it's the best investment I ever made!
I previously had a Traeger for years, and it was finally time to buy a new one. But before I re-purchased a Traeger, I did some research. Based on that research I determined this was a much better value. After using it, I've also determined that is better made than a Traeger! Also, the fact that you can direct sear with this unit is a major upgrade. The Traeger was only good at low temperatures, but now with this one I can do steaks and everything! Couldn't be more please, I highly ... recommend this product.
I have been reading about this thing for the past year or so and wasn't sure. I saw this new model comes with the flame broiler and the stainless side shelf and decided to buy. Now I'm just sorry I didn't buy last year. I've been smoking meats for about 20 years now on all kinds of smokers, mainly stick burners, and this produces results you won't believe. First it's burning wood, so you get that flavor that you can't get from any gas or electric smoker. The convection fan makes everything ... better. You fill the hopper, set the temp and that's it. So far I've done burgers, ribs and chicken and the results are out of this world. The smoke ring in the ribs went all the way to the bone. Cooking around 225-250 it doesn't use a lot of pellets, would have to spend more money to do the same cooking with wood or charcoal. It replaces 2 cookers in my backyard cause it does it all. Highly recommend!!
I bought a competitors griddle first however returned it because the legs where flimsy and the unit was unstable. Rather than trying another unit, I decided to buy the larger - much larger 50" griddle. I took it to the river to feed 18 people. It work great! if you do a lot of cooking; this is the best thing ever. It has become my new backyard favorite cooking tool. The only thing keeping it form a 5 star is the actual top itself. If you buy a unit, make sure the cook top does not "rock" back ... and forth. Its large, heavy and is difficult to keep level from the welding process during fabrication. With that said, my second cook top didn't "rock" but it sags slightly in the middle. fortunately it sags in the middle and to the front so oils and run off from cooking doesn't pool on the cooking surface. I went to a restaurant supply and bought some higher end griddle spatula and a high end cleaning/scraper tool. Clean the top with a squirt bottle of water and paper towels after each use. Finish up with a light coat of Pam or peanut oil after each use and it will season perfectly over time.
Best grill I have ever owned, you can do so much with it. Weber grills are the best.
Can't go wrong with this one. Cooks great wether you're grilling or cooking low and slow! Best grill that I have owned.
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 received this item in 2 days of purchase. Very please with that.
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.
I bought a month ago and have used a lot. Very good quality
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!
simple yet arrodable charcoal bbq....usually lasts about 3 years and cooks food perfectly...highly recommended!!
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.
My husband just bought this grill for Camping (: We love it ! It fits perfect in our Camper and is plenty big for us !!!!
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 really love this grill. Very spacious the only problem that I have is that they don't have a cover for it and I lose some of the smoke around the doors
