I Cooked a 12pd brisket first time I used the grill. Smoked it for seven hours, the temperature was easily maintained an everyone loved the smoked flavor. The unit is a lot heavier than it looks, but I still wish the steel were thicker. Also be careful with the fire box, there is no lip and the door does not seal so hot ash can fall out if your not paying attention. Btw, if you have a gas pressure gauge on your bottle the gas line is the perfect length.
This was the heaviest grill/smoker could find. Overall assembly was ok. Missing some washers but no big deal. Did some additional welding to strengthen and cover poor spot welds. Lids don't fit tight so plan on building gaskets for smoker. I put some gasket on the firebox split. Smoked a brisket and temps were a little challenging. Opening into cooking chamber allows to much heat on left side of brisket but put bricks in the opening to baffle the flame. Overall happy with the grill. Guy at ... academy was awsome and gave a nice discount over some product finish issues that were not that big of a deal. Looking for a custom fit cover. Char broil should make a custom like they do for their smokers
We are very happy with the purchase but it took a while for academy to have it Available
This item was a perfect fit and material was of very good quality !
Purchased 2 from the Palm Bay Store, and couldn't be happier. Heavy all welded construction, After seasoning ( 3 coatings of safflower oil), put them to work the next day. After getting to know the ins and outs of this over and over design, I couldn't live without it now. The briskets, ribs, Boston Butt, came out to perfection. Well worth the money!!!
I've had mine since June of 2014 (about 9 months now). The BBQ is great for holding low temperatures, and it is almost difficult to exceed 275. If you want to go hotter, you are looking for a grill, not a BBQ. This thing does use a bunch of fuel, but it gives good results. My only disappointment is that the paint has burned away on the upper part of the firebox and now I have to strip it and apply high temperature paint. You'd think that the manufacturer of a BBQ would use high temp paint, but I ... guess not. I still give it 5 stars and would buy it again.
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 grill not too long ago and Im really happy with it, perfect size for whoever live in a apt or just want to have something more mobile. Its great to grill and smoke... I recommend it
Really does keep your meat moist! Not sure why they say spicy. Not hot at all! Kids love it on their chicken! I love it on everything! Best ribs ever!
I purchased Gordon's Grub Rub on the recommendation of a friend and will purchase more when I run out. This is a great product for use on poultry and pork. Nothing else is required to give a beautifully colored and tasty end product. I apply it about 30 minutes before putting the meat on my grill then cook low and slow until done. A great product.
The deep fryer was great the only problem the pan was dent and it's hard to put the other pan inside of it
We got this a mouth ago and we love it, We have used it 9 times since
I bought this cover about a month ago now and in that time it has been rained and hailed on about 10 times, and you wouldn't even know it. This cover should last at least a few years. In my book $20 lasting over a year is a heck of a deal these days. The only thing I would change is I wish it had a drawstring to tighten it up at the bottom, but I just use a bungee cord. Built in would be nicer but I'm not complaining. Hopefully this cover is still around in the next few years when I need another one.
Cover is perfect for the Smoker that I have it covers the whole thing and there is even room to put other small things if you don't want them to get wet.
I purchased this to brew beer. Works great for doing a full boil. Nice solid construction. Much thicker than a standard turkey fryer pot. Bottom is nice and flat. Heats up fast. Anything priced comparably online did not come with a lid and had mixed reviews. This comes with a lid and a strainer. Very pleased with my purchase.
Competitive price great quality! Good cooking lots of stuff!
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......
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.
I bought this for a Christmas present and it is the best present and smoke we have ever had. With a large family, this smokes perfectly no matter what is inside, ribs, salmon, cheese, beans, roasts, even hot dogs and sausages. I with there was a way to add chips without burning fingers but otherwise, best smoker, yet!
I got this smoker for Christmas. Looked online at several makes and models of smokers and decided this was the most economical. I have been smoking meat on a Master Forge charcoal grill and, despite reviews complaining of smoke leaking around the lid and poor craftsmanship, I enjoyed smoking indirectly on mine (still have it and use for grilling). The only problem was there wasn't enough room when cooking for a larger crowd, so I was looking for something bigger. My youngest son and I put it ... together in a little less than an hour. This included laying out all the parts, reading over all the instructions first (not very manly, I know), and then stopping for some general father/son talk. One thing I noticed on some older reviews was how people turned the unit upside down as a part of the assembly and the doors fell off. I guess they've added Step 1A because it reads, "Remove the doors..." I used a Craftsman cordless drill with the clutch set on 10 and made fairly quick work out of assembly. After assembly, I seasoned the smoker per the intructions. Because of other reviews I had read, I went ahead and bought an oven thermometer. This particular model had a small wood chip tray. Others beng reviewed showed a round chip PAN. This is where some had placed a round skillet to hold wood chunks (one guy suggested lava rock and placing wood chunks on top). All of this was done to combat flare ups. However, with this model, the chip tray didn't flare up. Smoke lasted about 30-40 minutes and I could easily add chips (Get a pair of heat resistant gloves-- much better for doing this). Unless you remove the water pan, I'm not sure there is enough room to put a skillet in order to use wood chunks. There was some smoke leaking around the door, but it really didn't amount to much. The flow of smoke from the bottom through the top vent was extremely sufficient. I've never cooked with gas before -- grill or smoker, so I wasn't real sure what to expect. The outside temp and wind play a much bigger role in this unit than what I was accustomed to on the charcoal grill/smoker. I was able to put up a small piece of plywood to keep wind from blowing directly into bottom vent. Top temperature I got to was 275 with outside temp at 45+/-. This was fine since I only wanted 225 for smoking Boston butts. I cooked ribs a few days prior with a warmer outside temp (65 +/-) and initially ran the cooker up to 350. When assembled, I could get it up to 400 degrees with outside temp of 75. All that said, the temperature was easy to control and it held steady at 225 and 250 depending on what I needed at the time. You can't put meat in this unit, turn on the burners, and walk away. You'll need to check on it for adding wood chips, checking cooking temps, ...etc. There have been reviews upset about having to tend to this. This is not a commercial smoker. It's a metal box with a door, a window, and a propane burner at the bottom. It is not a commercial cooker. If you don't want to spend some time during the cook, you should probably just go buy your bbq and ribs from your local BBQ restaurant. The is a great smoker for the money!
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.
This should of been the standard issued type of grill that would be in all Char-Broil Bar-Be-Que grills. Instead, we had an additional costs to replace the clog prone, cheap type that was issued. Read your reviews on how others had the same problem.
I have been fighting the old style wire grates for a long time. the new coated Grates do a great job, and are essentially self cleaning, and it fits my older Charbroil Grill
I was havin a cookout and need a large pot. this pot hel 22 lbs crab legs, 5 lbs potatos, 8 lbs shrimp, 8 lbs sausage, 24 mini ears of corn, and 4 lbs craw fish. Pot was full. make sure your burnwer will be big enough thou. this Pot needs at least a 10 inch burner.
Easily did a 35 lb bag of crawfish, no more waiting 1 hr 30min total for a bag of crawfish.............Great !!!!
This is a great product. Easy to use. Easy to clean.
Great product and easy to use. Cleans up easy. Double your burger production.
I ordered this to scoop up my fried food from my deep fryer works good handles long enough to reach the bottom of the pot
I bought a double gourmet burner and the first time I used it I noticed that the one of the lines wasn't working properly, it was defective. So I called Academy's customer service and they shipped me a brand new one with no problems, although it cost my $7.00 for shipping it was better than having to pay full price.
I have used other chimneys and this is by far the best I have used. It is very well built, has coals ready quickly (I use instant light charcoal), and for $15 this price is hard to beat. The second handle makes for easy dumping of the coals. Don't forget to wear gloves!
Love that our food does not tast like gas. Hate the grill. We spent a lot and will be returning it.
I wanted a press maker for awhile just wasn't happy with others I bought this in hopes it would do well. Guess what I am happy makes nice burger bun sized patties and I like the ease of cleaning and use. Good Job on an inexpensive good press maker.
Outdoor barbecues are a cornerstone of summer. Prepare juicy hamburgers, sizzling hot dogs, marinated chicken breasts and other savory meals with our wide assortment of grills. Propane and natural gas grills quickly fire up, which is great when you want to eat in a hurry. Charcoal grills cook with pieces of charcoal, adding a smoky flavor to dishes.
Make moist, flavorful meals with meat smokers that deliver low temperatures over an extended period of time, trapping smoke and moisture into food items. Deep-fry an entire turkey in large-capacity fryers for serving on holidays or at large gatherings. For a healthier alternative, choose an oil-less fryer that uses infrared heat to penetrate foods evenly, so you can enjoy the savory flavor of fried food without all of the added fats and oils.
With a variety of grilling accessories to choose from, you can turn any summer afternoon or evening into a BBQ gathering. Stock up on a variety of spices and seasonings to add extra flavor to dishes, and keep a thermometer handy to check the internal temperatures of meat. Spatulas, tongs, spearing forks, and other grilling tools and utensils enable safe handling of on-the-grill food items, while cast-iron cookware is durable enough to withstand outdoor grilling.
