abunda_amazon_reviews I purchased this grill through Amazon last year and I wish I could give it a 7 for a rating! Barbecue is my hobby; I very rarely use my oven other than broiling fish. I have a Kamado and a pellet grill. I can’t say enough about those 2 grills because they are excellent. But I have to admit that my PK Grill is my go to grill. If I’m just cooking for myself or just 2 or 3 people and I want a few pieces of chicken, hamburgers, chops, hot dogs this grill is perfect. I do chicken with the indirect set up and smoke the chicken at about 325 degrees with apple wood chunks smoke and it comes out perfect every time. The grill holds the heat without any problem. By adjusting the top and bottom vents, you can achieve a convection air flow when smoking your meat. You just open the bottom vent and close the top vent on side of the charcoal and close the bottom vent and open the top vent on the side that has the meat. You get that great smoked flavor into what ever you’re cooking. Great all round grill!!;;January 13, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great all round grill!!;;Garden Guy;;;Forged aluminum process could be improved. Finished product needed a little machining to be more acceptable for the amount of money spent. I wished there had been an option for grill height and for a send lower shelf. It needed a second side self to look more evenly balanced. I added the 2 shelves and extra height to make it the same height as my old BBQ. I purchased these from you. I added the thermometer which should also have come with the Q. I got rid of the PK cover because it kept flying off. No straps to keep it in place. The best part is that this Q works better than any other Q I have ever had. If the PK company were mine I would have more height and shelf options to be more price competitive, and I would include the thermometer. All Q's I have had all had one and again for the money it should have been included. With a little more attention to these details and if the public could see these in the store, it would be very helpful. However, it is a great Q now.;;July 28, 2018;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;The best part is that this Q works better than any ...;;Gary Moore;;;Arrived with a damaged side support.

Thanks Cindy.....Thanks PK Grills!;;May 2, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Damaged parts and no contact number to call. Problem Resolved !!!;;Amazon Customer;;;My husband loves this grill. We use our grill year around 2-4 times per week. Bought this as replacement for a Weber kettle-style grill. We have used it to grill and as a smoker, with great results. Grilled steaks, burgers, brats, pork chops, salmon. Smoked a whole KC strip roast, prime rib, whole chicken and ribs so far on this grill and have been happy with the results. This grill is heavy, really heavy. They mean it when they say it will last a lifetime! My husband likes that he can shut the heat down and reuse charcoal. We love the way it cooks; cooks fast with even heat. Only drawback is that we wish it was a little bigger, and wish it had a lip for flipping.;;January 10, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;with great results. Grilled steaks;;Lori C;;;All I can say is .. "WOW". This little grill cooks like a champ! After my old Webber gave up it's ghost - I deliberated long and hard over this grill. It's not cheap, but it has rave reviews. So I took the plunge, and can only say how impressed I am! The grill took all of 5 minutes to assemble, - only a few nuts and bolt for the frame. But my golly is this thing well made. Very sturdy and high quality. After having done 5 cooks, I must admit this PK grills and smokes perfectly. Air control and the tight casting make the heating very even. Burgers and Steaks came out perfect, with nice char marks. And the smoked brisket was to die for. Its not a huge grill, but perfect size for a small family.

I wanted to cook a variety of meats before rating it. I don't like to buy a product sight unseen but I used to work in an aluminum foundry in my younger days so I had some knowledge about the construction of it. This is the best grill I have ever owned!!!!! It works equally well for searing or smoking meats. The cooking chamber will last a lifetime. The grill and charcoal grates are heavier duty than other grills I have owned and replacement grates are available if needed. I did make two modifications. The first month the cover blew off the grill three times due to the wind(I live in the country). A trip to the upholstery shop and six grommets($10) with some bungee straps solved that problem. I also added a thermometer($46) to control the temp when smoking.
