Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BBQreview Cowboy charcoal grill
My husband loved his birthday gift. Lots of options with the movable small rack and pot holder. Easy to put together with just a few tools. Sturdy base and great for sitting around a wood fire with friends on our cool high desert nights. There is no lower grate to build a coal fire on to minimize the distance between the coals and the food, so you'll have to over build your fire if cooking on it. Although that does leave a lot of coals for the kids to toast marsh mellows on after dinner. We are also now on the hunt for a cover to fit it when not in use. Haven't found one yet.
Overall a good buy with lots of fun packed in the box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LeauxRider Much more than just a fire pit
I wanted a fire pit for those lazy evenings on the back patio when family and friends sit around the fire and just talk. But the well-made, high quality metal fire pits were several hundred dollars. There were pagoda style ones, and weird ball-cages, and most were made of cheap, thin metal - you could see the low quality - and few of them approached 30".
Then I found this. A great, solid, quality fire pit that just happens to also have a grill system and a spit! It doesn't come with a charcoal grate (to raise the wood or coals up off the bottom and create some air space) so I ordered one from Weber. Fits perfectly and puts the coals at just the right distance from the grill to perfectly cook a bunch of delicious porterhouse steaks!

This Cowboy grill is better than expected. We were sitting around it to get warm an decided a small pot of low country boil would be good. We threw it in the pot and warm it with our fire, great idea!

We just purchased this grill-we got it together in about an hour (at night with not the best lighting) It seems really well made, we've had a fire in it to season it and all went well. My reason for this review is for people looking for a cover, I found a 35" fire pit for $79.99. We used the fire bowl for the cover. It came with a mesh spark cover we used the ring for that on the pit for lifting. It also came with a cover that when the accessories are taken off will fit over top and all. We think we can use the mesh cover also with some adjustments. Still looking for a top to make a table with the legs.

We have used this grill many times as a fire pit. It's heavy gauge metal construction has held up very well. The chrome pieces rusted a little out doors so I recommend keeping them indoors when not in use. My boys used the grill top to cook on and overheated and warped it. We contacted customer service at RiverGrille and they asked us to send photos and an explanation of what happened. They replaced the part free of charge. That kind of service is hard to find these days and very welcome at our house. Never place to cooking top over an active flame. Cook only over the coals and you will be very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JumpingFraggle What I was looking for!
Was hunting for a barbie (not the toy) and saw smokers and grills and cheap fold away ones. But really wanted something simple, back to nature, yet versatile. Then we found this and its perfect. Easy to construct, sturdy and well made with plenty of extras I'm dying to try. Cleaning also easy. Basically what a barbie should be, me the fire and food (and beer). Just need to find a good cast iron kettle.

"If an open pit grill is what you want buy this grill!
With minimal work to put together you cant beat this for large outdoor grill and general use firepit.
Be aware that this is really not a grill for just a couple of people. You can literally cook 15 good size steaks on this thing. Im looking forward to warmer days when I can have several friends come over with thier own stuff to grill. It will be perfect. Not sure about the rotisary attachment as there isnt any way to keep in place other than standing there holding/turning by hand

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GrillMaster If it only came with all of the parts...
The grill was ordered on-line and arrived within the prescribed timeframe, however, it did not come with the required hardware for assembly.
A call to the company to request the hardware was made to request the hardware. I was notified that I had to provide proof of purchase before a hardware package would be sent - which I did.
After the hardware package did not arrive over a week later after the email was sent, a follow up email was sent - where I was informed that the hardware package would be sent out that day.
Film at 11...very poor follow up, poor internal accountability and poor experience. However, they are nice to speak to.
