Bought this grill over a month ago. Instructions are not the greatest and most reviews discuss it being 6 hours on average for sssembly which is about right. I had mine freight delivered which it was not handled very well along the road. I had to bend back many parts myself to make it all fight. The grill itself operates fine but the griddle rusts badly if not used every few days. The paint or coating not sure what it is supposed be in the sides on the grill tops sides has peeled away ... after the first uses. Same with the smoker box. The grill is really attractive but quality is just not that great. I would've preferred paying more for a higher quality grill. Not unhappy with my purchase but I can tell it won't be a longterm item now so I would not buy this brand again.
Only had it 3 weeks, seems like pretty decent product. The cover is a "must have" and is very well made. My grill arrived in a beat up box due to shipping and took about 3 hrs. to assemble. A couple of flanges had some minor bends that were easily straightened and the weld on the charcoal lifter was broken so it wouldn't lift. I re-welded it myself and it works fine ( there's no way you could get it all back in the box to send it back) Take care of it and it should last a while. Keep the griddle ... and grates oiled with cooking oil so they don't rust. Another thing, you need to grab one when they get them in cause they go fast.
I've had this grill for half a year now. It's good. I don't know about 16 burgers at once though LOL, maybe my burgers are just big. Either way, I use it for meals and gets the job done. I have a propane - huge- event grill that I was using, but this is better for just the family. About lighting the coal, I have no idea what the person in the other review is doing wrong. There is a trick to opening the bottom, you have to kind of lift, then pull to open it. I though it was stuck the first ... time, then I figured it out. I've cooked steaks, burgers, roasted chile, etc... The little temperature gauge helps out too.
I bought this a couple about a week ago to take a break from my wood smoker, and I read a ton of reviews before deciding on this unit. It is great. It's small, definitely won't fit ten burgers or however many they claim, but that's nothing to complain about in my opinion. The picture shows it to be a smaller pit, and it also tells you the size of cooking space. I use about 1/5 of the amount of charcoal I'm used to, and the fire stays hot and burns longer than most pits. I used the smallest bag ... of charcoal I could find for the first light to burn off the factory smells and season it. It stayed about 450 for a few hours. Now as far as controlling temp.... that's going to be accomplished by the size of your fire. best $60 I've spent so far on cooking.
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 my 1st old smokey when I was newly married at 19 and I have tried many grills and always go back to this one! It lasts forever and smokes the food fabulously! My new husband swears by the gas grills and we got 1 last Christmas and it's ready to be thrown out already....so I am heading to Academy soon to buy a Old Smokey (I will wait 2 weeks to see if I'm a winner however!!
My third one over a period of many years. Light weight but holds heat well enough for burgers, steaks, chicken or sausage. I put a large pan in the bottom for the coals to set in to make it easier to dump out.
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.
First I have to say service at the Tuscaloosa academy on July 3rd was awesome. Went in looking for a grill, of course on the day before the 4th, selection wouldn't be very good. Found the grill I wanted on their display board but wasn't on the floor, an associated asked to help right away and found me one in the back, loaded it in my truck and asked to tie it down. I was in and out in 30 minutes. The grill is great. Perfect for what I needed. Seems to be good quality. Big enough to do a lot or ... put charcoal to one side an do a little. Grilled burgers and hot dogs for the 4th and just grilled some fillets and chicken. Had no complaints from the family, must have been pretty good. Thanks Academy for 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 found attaching the handle to the lid very difficult after that it was easy to assemble. I was surprised that it was not flimsy for the price it is worth the $20 dollars. Spray the interior with vegetable oil before your first use and it will prevent it from rusting. Happy with my purchase!
I didn't look for measurements. Was surprised to see how small it was. But it will hold 5 or 6 burgers. That's all I need even with family over. I can even sit down to cook! Very cute!
I am very pleased with my ole smokey bought a month ago
This grill was my Mothers Day gift from my kids. Hands down the best gift I have ever received. I was extremely impressed by how accurately it maintains temperatures. Also I loved all the extras that are included, which other brands sell separately. I highly recommend this grill!
This is my first kamado and I am very impressed with the cooking performance! Looking forward to showing it off on Memorial Day!!
I bought this about a year ago since then I've grilled like a champ! With this size you can smoke anything I've done whole packer briskets several pork butts, can't get enough ribs. Don't get the smaller models or original, this one you can master everything. Hinged grates for chunk wood, thermometer for watching heat. And save some back with thé ash catcher. Now get out there and cook some guuuuuud food.
Best grill I have ever owned, you can do so much with it. Weber grills are the best.
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 weber-one touch silver charcoal grill over 2 months ago and it works great
My husband just bought this grill for Camping (: We love it ! It fits perfect in our Camper and is plenty big for us !!!!
I had one before and wore it out. Perfect size for cooking for one. Awesome piece of equipment that any true bbq king needs to have.
A perfect choice for a Barbecue with my family and friends!
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 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.
Ive had my aussie for 3 yr now. I love it! It works very well, stores easily and is great for small areas. The auto igniter doesnt work anymore but easy to light the burners. Great value!!!
