Is this grill worth buying?

Asked by: deedee
Yes, this is a sturdy charcoal grill. It evenly distributes the heat, smokes the food, and is a great value.

How well does it smoke?

I'm almost 100% about picking this up but I really love smoked meat, but don't have room for a giant smoker.
Asked by: erod
Although I haven't tried that yet as I loved smoked meat too, all you really need to do is add the wood chips (soaked in water first) to the coals and you should get enough smoke flavor to satisfy your tastes. This is not a smoker though, it is a grill. However it does have a temperature gauge on it to help maintain the temperature you need to smoke meat and just might work for you if you can maintain the consistent heat.

Can I smoke a slab of pork ribs on this grill?

Asked by: Jack
You sure can, there's more than enough room, I would say there's even room for 2 or maybe more depending on the size of the slab.

American Gourmet Barrel Style Charcoal Grill is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 271.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it is suppossed to do. Cooks very well. It is well worth the money at under 100.00. Cooks evenly and looks like a grill should.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad for the money Got this yesterday in the store along with the matching outdoor cover. It's of notably greater thickness steel than others at HD in this barrel style charcoal grill; buy nice or buy twice. That said, it's not solid cast iron, or 10 gauge aircraft stainless, the top does twist a bit under force, but the welds (spot) look acceptable. PROS: Good value for the size. Cast Iron grates (see also CONS below). Adjustable chimney vent. Stable even with a full cookie sheet of food on the side shelf. Relative ease of assembly (see also CONS below). Hardware is in a blister-pack with labels making selection of correct hardware fast; this is a great trend I’ve noticed from other assemble-at-home products. Fairly stable once the bottom of the barrel is connected to the frame. Swing-down front shelf. Perfect matched weather cover available, separately. We did not install the warming rack yet, as we plan for some large items that may hit it. Included an iron grate lifter tool – nice! Still light enough to move around easily. Easy to adjust the coal-grate distance – but buy some BBQ/welding gloves as the coal tray handles get VERY hot. CONS: The handle was actually asymmetrical: one “leg” is clearly longer than it’s mate (~3/8”). It still fits the top lid…just an issue for the QC dept. I positioned it so that a righty would have more finger room for their index finger area. Also, said handle had some oversprayed paint on the integral threads and it made putting the nut fully on impossible. I had to clean it up with a Dremel and wire-wheel. Sigh, at least I got to use power tools that day. The iron grates are “raw” and need to be cleaned and “seasoned”. The manual suggested a rather laborious method. We were able to do the grill “seasoning” (wipe the interior with veg oil and heat the unit sans food to cook off the mfg. oils/paint curing). There were no issues with food sticking on the first cook. It’d be nice if the manual included the suggested tools to use, including the socket sizes for those of us of that ilk. A set of SAE nut drivers sped up assembly for me. Wheels are pretty chintzy plastic and I can foresee them needing to be replaced if the unit is moved much/often or on rough surfaces. Also, wheels held on by wire pin-clips: also see these getting replaced soon with something more sturdy (cotter or legit clamp of some sort). Lack of BBQ tool hooks, or even places for hooks. The coal holder tray has a grate welded in it, but there were several welds that had broken or never even been made. These are not critical to function, but sorta indicative of QC, or lack thereof. Also, said coal tray had the packaging's plastic wrap REALLY stuck to the back side, almost like it was glued there (there was some strange brown residue that defied a wire brush – I figured it would burn off eventually. Sorry, ozone layer. I can see where the exterior paint coating will wear or is already worn and will probably need some touch up paint at the end of the season. They provide a grease drip cup *holder* but not the drip cup itself – maddening. Now I have to source a cup that fits – oh, wait, since my BBQ spot is not dead level, the grease ran out the other end and onto the deck thru a gap in the side wall. Not thrilled with how the top hinges; the left side “ear” that the linch pin fit thru was off just enough to make inserting the pin a pain and now it seems to be putting a lot of stress on the cotter pin that secures the linch pin. Can see this needing repair in the future (solid rod hinge?).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT! Little Grill Have had this grill for about 2 months, on sale at big box store, it is one of the best grills I have ever owned, I am not a young guy, and I have had more grills than I can remember but this is one of the best. I can actually cook on it, heat control is fantastic, and you can't image what you can do with 2+ pounds of char coal, I was amazed. Keep in mind this is not a large grill, perfect for a small back yard, or to do a few steaks, salmon on a plank, or 8 or 9 hamburgers. To think of all the money I spent on previous grills that stated they were the "greatest", well I found the greatest for a great price too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great grill bought this on sale for a second grill for the lower patio area. All the reviews said that this grill is great for cokking and you can even do some smoking with it as well. The reviews are all correct. The l;ast time i grilled i had chx breast on the upper shelf for and our and a half with some hickory smoke chips. The chx was perfect! For the value you cannot beat it. I think this grill cooks better than my gas grill which was 3x more expensive. I also reccomend buying the grill cover that is sole separately to keep this nice. I doubt that the grill would stand up to the elements for a very long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charbroil Grill...Just wondering why.... I just bought this grill two days ago, it was put together at the store...and then I picked it up. It was loaded into the back of my SUV and I didn't really look at it beforehand. I just took it out of my SUV, grill looks good, cooking surface looks sufficient...started to roll it into my garage to put it away until the rain stops...and realized...there's NO handle to help balance it to tip back and roll forward. I've never seen a grill that didn't come with a handle to help move it. Didn't notice that when I ordered it...just assumed a handle came with all grills. Anybody have any suggestions?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointed I just bought this as a Christmas gift the other day for my husband, as he's been wanting a charcoal grill. I did my research and this Bbq got great reviews and 4.4 stars. However, he just got done assembling it and there are already several things that I am displeased with. 1st, the cast iron grate lifter was broken. 2nd the grates are uneven and do not sit flat on the ledges. Also the lid handle was either cut or shaped incorrectly, as one side the handle is about an inch longer than the other side. Lastly, the bottom storage rack was welded wrong. One crossbar is straight while the other is at a 45° angle. Needless to say, I am very embarrassed and have been apologizing again and again for this gift. Not a happy customer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from can't beat it for $79 Bought this for a first grill, on Memorial Day weekend. It did the job. Pros: it's $79, for that price you won't find anything close to this one. Thermometer and adjustable smoke stack are a nice touch. 2 shelves, front and side give you some work room. Though I plan on building a separate side shelf to further that space. It held 10 burgers and 12 hot dogs with room to spare. Cons: assembly was kind of cumbersome took about 3 beers to complete. The bottom rack broke at the welds in 3 spots during assembly. Overall, the barrel is pretty solid, the handle does not get hot. I seasoned the grates with veg oil after a wash with some dawn, and it worked perfect. Used 3 times since last week. I say why not for $80?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Great Grill I purchased this grill right before the 4th of July. The assembly was easy. You just need to ensure that you follow the directions and not be like my fiancé and turn into Bob The Builder. Anywho, we used it on the holiday. This grill is one of the best grills I've ever purchased. The ability to slow cook your food on the second shelf is great. You can monitor your heat index not to mention cleaning up the grill eyes so you won't have to worry about rust is good...Everyone talked about how good the food was. Caught the grill for a phenomenal price. Great Buy!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from RUST Thought it would be a good grill because it had cast iron grill plates. Used it the day I got it. Let it cool overnight. The next day I went to clean the grill plates, and they were already rusty. It did not rain that night and there was no dew in the morning. After I was done using it, I brushed off the plates. Still the next day I found rust.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly Made This grill does what it is supposed to do but....... 1. The directions are needlessly complicated.. They keep referring to screws in terms that are hard to understand rather than simply saying something like use a 1/4 in screw or use one screw X (along with a chart). Making it worse was the shrink wrap packet containing the screws which had labels for each section of screws, however, they were badly misaligned making it impossible to see what the labels referred to. Adding to the confusion, all the screws are too long so it always looks like you are using the wrong one. 2. The design of the grate that holds the charcoal is too small and leaves a couple of inch gap on each side which makes it all too easy to drop charcoal past the grate to the bottom of the grill. 3. For some reason the left side of the grill was missing four holes to hold the side table. There were two screw holes that didn't match anything and yes I did put in on the correct side. I was forced to either take it all apart and return it or drill 4 holes myself. Which I did. The store display did not have the extra unused holes and the table was mounted exactly where I drilled my 4 holes. I guess the manufacturer in China got confused. 4. The directions tell you to cover the entire inside of the grill with vegetable oil, not just the grill grates. Furthermore, the instructions go on to say that any rust would be your fault for not oiling enough. But it does work and it was $79 on sale.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shipping was horrible!!! Don't do it. Get it from the store. The grill is awesome and everything that I was looking for. My husband loves it. And I love that he loves to cook on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea -- some flaws Grill was easy to assemble, though mine was missing a few parts (quickly supplied). The assembled grill feels solid, but the materials are thinner than past Char-Broil products I have owned. I have used it several times in the past week. Good for smoking and direct grilling. One glaring design flaw is the lack of anywhere to hang utensils -- even the supplied grate lifter. The coal pan is considerable smaller than the lower portion of the gril resulting in spillage getting under the pan. Pros: Adjustable coal height Cast iron grates decent sized cooking area Good value for price Cons: Nowhere to store utensils Smokestack is cute but makes a typical cover almost unusable Coal pan too small relative to bottom portion of grill Materials seem flimsy My last Char-Broil lasted 18 years -- we'll see how this one stands up to heavy use

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great barbeque for the money. I have a large barrel barbeque which is now to big for me. I am 67 and I put it together in an afternoon. I did need by grandson to help life the top part of the barrel on to the bottom half. It has a thermostat on it, my old one did not. 2 shelves, 1 adjustable. Buy this and you will be suppressed at what you get for the money. only $99.00 and free shipping. People think I spent a lot more for it Heavy steel. I just need to buy a cover for it. Oh, I forgot, it uses less charcoal then my other one,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Well Made! Ever since I got my new grill about a month ago I've been using it constantly. With summer here I like cooking outside instead of heating up the house. This grill far outweighs the flimsy grill I was using last year and with the 2 shelf areas to set things when grilling I couldn't be happier with it. Cleaning is a breeze with the 3 grill plates for easy access to the coals AND the coal bed tray has many settings for moving the coals to and away from the food, I love that feature!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grill, great price Having owned a natural gas grill for years until it died. We inherited a charcoal grill from a son. Nothing fancy but the price was right. In time, it dies as well and we saw this grill advertised on sale. I never owned a barrel grill before, but this has been a gem. Everything has come out great including vegetables. The assembly instructions were easy to follow and they are right, have a helper. Seasoning the grill was a snap. Can't wait to try it as a smoker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grill at a great price! This grill was relatively simple to assemble, it provides a medium-large sized cooking area and cooks evenly. The heavy duty cast iron grills stay hot and radiate heat MUCH better than traditional thin round metal grills. The handles are safe to grab even when the grill is red hot. The only gripe I have is that the legs were not designed with a crossbar for stabilization so the grill is not as sturdy as I'd like. For the price this is a fantastic grill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Grill This American Gourmet Barrel Charcoal Grill is an outstanding grill for the price. I've had it a little over a month and have grilled chicken, spare ribs, hamburgers and hotdogs. The chicken and ribs were outstanding! The grill maintained a high heat that was easy to control and the temperture distribution was perfect. Can't beat the large cooking surface. I also own a Weber Kettle and a STOK. Both great grills but this A G Barrel has alot to offer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusty Grill Grates The grill grates rusted horribly within a few weeks! The chimney was assembled at an angle.
Date published: 2015-04-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solid Grill I found the grill easy to assemble with instructions provided. The grill holds a decent amount of charcoal enough to grill for a few hours at a time. The two valves control the amount of air flow and heat release to keep the temperature steady and even to provide a good cooking environment. The wire rasied rack could be a little more sturdy to support more weight. The grilling racks are divided into three sections for easy removal and not too heavy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charcoal Grill Purchase Overall, a nice charcoal grill 1. Grill cooks food well. 2. Wish the top shelf was attached to the inside of the grill versus the grill's cover so when you need to open it to check on whatever you're grilling on the main shelf there would be no worry about the food on that top shelf possibly falling off. 3. Easy to clean after grilling. I don't particularly like having to keep applying vegetable on it but I don't want it to rust so I will do so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great grill could be even greater Grill was easy to assemble and a breeze to operate. No complaints at all about the grill...good replacement for a trusted old friend that simply got too old. One suggestion for the design team: Utensil hooks. I cannibalized my 18 year old CharBroil grill to attach a row of hooks and a row of slats to attach grill accessories (like the grate lifter). Construction feels solid. I really like the cast iron grates...easier to use/clean than a wire grill. Positioning the coal pan is easy (remember to use pot holders). Adjusting the airflow is also a snap, but remember to clear the ash pan so the lower air duct is clear. The only other drawback I have seen is that the grill is not air tight enough to save coals. What you put in to cook will be consumed. I may try to fit a heat resistant gasket around grill top to see how that works. I would recommend this grill as a moderately-priced family grill able to cook for 1-10 people.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does a good job pretending to be a grill. Noticed that the metal on the side where you place the coals is already losing the paint after the first use. It is great for the occassional griller, but the hardcore griller will find the unit a bit on the weak side. I do like the fact that 90 percent of the coal dust comes out on the removable holder, the built in therostate is fairly accurate and useful! Worth what I paid on sale, but I would have passed it by at retail pricing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Cooker I received this for a Father's Day gift. Assembled it myself, which was pretty easy. I love the way it cooks. But unhappy with the quality of the product. Really kind of made cheap, and the wheels are so cheap after moving it only a few times they have ob-longed the holes. Plastic wheel mounted to a steel rod with no bushing, set to fail. Only other complaint would be thin sheet metal, could be a little heavier gauge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this grill as a b-day gift for my hubby and he loves it. He is always grilling on it no matter if its cold or raining. I had it pre assembled at the store and underestimated the size when I tried to get it home. It's a pretty decent size and after seasoning it as instructed it works very well. It's not wobbly at all. We love the second grilling rack that keeps food warm and the temp gauge is a big help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Best Grill Ever I have been charcoal grilling for over 40 years and this is the best...if I could attach a rotisserie to this it would be 5 stars. I have owned gas grills,but nothing beats the taste of charcoal-NO lighter fluid ever. This easily starts with a bit of newspaper loosely rolled under the charcoal. The 3 grates are high quality cast iron, not just cheap wire. Also it is wide enough that it is easy to move stuff off the heat. So easy to raise and lower the coals for maximum control. The dual air vents add another measure of flame and heat control. The side & front "counters" come in handy. Great grill at a terrific price. I opted to put this together as a project with my grandkids. It was a great teaching moment and we all had fun. We have used it 4-5 times a week for the last month. Notice the grates in the picture and sorry they are sideways. Be sure to follow the set up directions for prepping them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Grill I bought this on short notice and just needed a decent grill to smoke a brisket and pork butt. It had plenty of space and the temperature stayed hot for both items to cook all day. It actually took less charcoal than I expected and got / stayed hotter longer. Pleasant surprise. The only issue I had was the top damper broke off. Overall a fantastic purchase for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Charcoal Grill This grill is great for barbeque, and the barrel shape works wonders for smoking too. Its the perfect size and you can grill a large amount of meat and keep vegetables on the top grilling rack. The tray for the charcoal is also adjustable and easily removed for dumping the ashes, and the cooking grates are the high quality heavy duty ones. I highly recommend this grill!
