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.
I bought this grill near the end of December 2014. I absolutely love it!! I love the flat top griddle. New York strip steaks on it are absolutely delicious. Every part of the grill works flawlessly. I highly recommend the grill cover that academy sells for this as well. Seems to be made of good quality, tough material.
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.
Big enough to use at home and small enough to take with you. We use it mainly at the lake and bring it home to store
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.
I have used these for 20 years. They are easy to setup and easy to use as a smoker or a grill. We have done BeerB chicken, dogs, brats, burgers and ribs. The extra long legs are optional and I bought them for the old unit and transferred them to my new one. These last about 7 years before rusting out.
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 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!
I am very pleased with my ole smokey bought a month ago
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
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.
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 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 Aussie grill lasted 11 years. We purchased it for camping so it was in the garage or stored in the camper during camping season and outside on camping trips. It was a sad day when my camping buddy hit the leg holding latch to hard and broke it. We had a cheaper and smaller version of this grill for a few seasons. Purchased a new RV last year that came with a quick connect gas grill attached after a season we have decided to purchase another Aussie grill for the camper and go back to this ... grill. Looks exactly like the one I had purchased so many years ago. Also got rid of gas grill for home and will just use this. Gas is great but you just do not get that flavor that makes grilling great.
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'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!!
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!
