Product Overview

Expand your grilling experience and enjoy true cooking performance with authentic BBQ flavor - the Broil King Keg 5000 is an innovative charcoal grill designed to keep heat and moisture in, creating a very efficient, thermal convection-style oven that delivers superior cooking performance. With its unique insulated double-walled steel body, the Keg 5000 is more durable than ceramic kamado grills and is significantly lighter, perfect for bringing the Keg along to your next tailgate. With available trailer hitch adapter (sold separately) you can hook the Keg 5000 up to your trailer hitch and bring it along with you for a new cooking adventure. The cast iron upper damper and cast aluminum lower damper both feature Roto-Draft technology that makes it easier to set the airflow to create the perfect temperature for cooking. Metered markings make it easier to remember where you set your dampers so you can recreate your slow-smoked meals over and over again. Heavy-duty reversible cast iron primary cooking grate is perfect for retaining heat for the best sear and features multi-position settings so you can be sure your food is placed in the correct spot. A swing out chrome secondary cooking rack adds extra cooking space and quickly moves out of the way when you need to get to the food on the primary grate. From low-and-slow smoking to high temperature grilling and searing, the Broil King Keg 5000 is a charcoal grill that can do it all with no compromises.

The only BBQ I ever needed after 7 years with it
Customer review from logo
I bought an earlier version of the Broil King Keg before the "5000" rebranding. That was 7 years ago. It is the very best grill I've ever owned. I've done it all with it. Slow smoked briskets over 13 hours, 6 hours slow smoked ribs, 800F flash sear steaks, etc. Windy days, extreme cold days, etc. Nothing stops this beast. It does it all. The only piece I changed in 7 years is the gasket around the lid. It doesn't rust, it is extremely durable and unlike the ceramic kamados, it doesn't weight 300lbs. I've paired it with a few gadgets like a Pitmaster IQ120 and a Joe-tisserie (rotisserie that is compatible with the Keg). Just last weekend I did 5 racks of smoked ribs for a pot-luck and it was a hit. If you're not experienced with charcoal, there is a learning curve, but you will not regret the result. Get yourself a good chimney and starting coal becomes easy. I only use lump charcoal. So 7 years later, I tried other smokers (electric and charcoal), but I keep coming back to this one.

Love it!

Bought this in early spring, started playing around with it and haven't touched my other two charcoal grills since. Kabobs, burgers, home made bacon, smoked beans, brisket, not a dud in the bunch yet. Beef ribs twice which has now convinced everyone they they're better than the pork ribs which were also great! I'm totally sold on this keg. The other two grills are out of the rotation! Next up, seared steaks and maybe a pizza or two.

Best ever!!!
Customer review from logo
Tough And durable for kamando cooking.....very capable of temps 200 degrees and up and holds temp spot on. Living in a winter climate was looking for something that was insulated enough to cook in cold weather, does the job very nicely. Will purchase again in 10 - 15 years when this one wears out

Great product for searing and slow smoking. Don’t like the plastic trays as they cannot handle hot items like the wood trays on my Big Green Egg.

I bought one of these 10 years ago (was only $400) and LITERALLY ran a BBQ restaurant with it for 4 years (bought 2 more)...once you figure it out it is almost like an can just set it and forget it...invest in the off market indirect heat plate, think it’s made by BGE but works perfectly inside of this. I wish I still had one but not willing to pay $900 for it...

Does anything you want
Customer review from logo
This beats gas or propane any day. You can do anything like putting red peppers directly on the cold up to baking a cake. Never mind the salmon on the Cedar Point with the taste of charcoal it is really amazing.

Very Pleased
Customer review from logo
We have been using for a month now and love the way it cooks, the taste, easily controlled temperature and efficiency of the lump charcoal. Applied for the 'bonus' pkg because it was purchased within a certain time frame but have not received anything on this yet.

Great meals from ribeye to sockeye and everything in between. We're seared, slow cooked, smoked and baked. It really does do it all
