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
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
Grill season is coming, my wife and me walk inside of academy store, we found this difference design combo grill, and its much better than previous model. The old style has too much issue from other customer review. All issue has been improve on this units i am suprising of the change, the firebox is double wall, I like charcoal smoker, this Will be good feature to seal heat inside. We used this Grill this weekend, it works very good. I try smoker function, the painting didt come off. very good.
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 just bought this last weekend, It was the last one they had and already put together which is awesome, got home and only had to screw in 4 screws and I was good to go. My wife and I cooked on it that night, thing is awesome! I love the way the food taste! So much better than a gas grill hands down! I also looked around everywhere to find one and this place had by far the best deal. The store is really cool for being in it for the first time. They also have good deals on fire pits and chairs. ... Store is great! They have everything you need there. Spent $400 there that day and got a ton of great stuff! We will go back for any other needs no doubt.
I bought the grill with the intentions of eating healthier and saving money from eating out often. I like to eat grilled chicken, fish, and occasionally a steak. This is the first gas grill I have ever bought and so far I love it. I am still experimenting with it. It gets hot very quickly which I like because it cuts down on my cooking time. I also like the portability of the grill. Once it's cooled down I fold it up and put it away in my storage unit.
Grill was received as gift from Darling Wife for Father's Day 2016. I had mentioned another manufacturer's product, but this one has a much larger grilling space 325 sq. in. I wasn't expecting the match holder feature attached by chain to the table end of the unit. I had to think about it for a couple of minutes to figure out exactly what it was for. Actually it tends to fall out and get in the way when you transport the grill on the wheels. The only feature I don't really like on the unit is ... that it is intended for the disposable propane bottles. I am looking for a hose attachment that will fit on my RV propane system so that I can draw fuel from the larger 40# tanks on the RV. I shouldn't need another regulator since I will be drawing from the low pressure side of the RV regulator at 10 inches of water.
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 THIS PRODUCT APRIL THIS YEAR AND PRETTY MUCH COOK WHATEVER I WANT. GREAT ITEM TO COOK OUTSIDE BY THE SWIMMING POOL.
Had mine for 8 months now use it with my RV, I have not had one problem
Just unpacked this grill and had it cooking lunch in no time. It's perfect for the tailgate of the truck. With the proper care it appears to have a long life span. Spray PAM all over the inside before first use and throughout future uses to keep it lasting longer! Great product for the price!
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...
Best grill I have ever owned, you can do so much with it. Weber grills are the best.
I bought this for my son for Christmas and really likes it.
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!
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.
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 purchased this pit last week. I love size and weight. In the past I had been buying the $100 and under bbq pits that last a year or so. After using this pit I will never go back to the lower quality grills. The side door makes it easy to load large wood blocks for smoking. Cooks perfect. I love it
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 researching smokers and grills for months. I finally pulled the trigger a day before Easter to smoke two Pork Loins on. And results are in, it was AWESOMENESS. i am still learning how to run it, but two meals in two days were the bomb. Using Pecan flavor and no complaints other than "dad, why did you wait so long to get it". I am very pleased
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!!!
This is my first kamado and I am very impressed with the cooking performance! Looking forward to showing it off on Memorial Day!!
Went in to buy burners for my old grill and they had a great price on this Tru grill it cooks great with no flare ups and was easy to clean. the store team was great at loading it for me.
Have only used it a few times but can already tell it's the best grill I've ever had. Cooks great on lower heat no flare ups meat stays juicy. Easy clean up. Infrared is the only way to go......
My previous grill had seen it's better days and parts were no longer available, so it was time to get another grill. I had looked at many brands for a few months, and decided on this grill. Very glad I did and could not be happier. Heats up quickly and grills evenly. Large enough cooking space for our year round grilling. Love this grill.
