I confess, I am not a cowboy . . . I'm not even a Cowboy fan. But I am excited about this "grill and fire pit." While looking at the various grills on HomeDepot.com, I saw this and recalled my wife's words, "I want a fire pit in the yard!" That in itself is amazing, since my wife swears I don't even listen.
We busted out the parts and put this baby together. Then we poured in the charcoal, soaked them in lighter fluid, threw in the match. Fast forward to some wonderful sirloin beef burgers, enjoyed by all.
The only downside is this: The pit itself is bowl shaped, leaving the charcoal way below the grill/grid itself. The grill/grid only has two adjustments, both quite a distance above 5 lbs. of charcoal. But, as I said, the beef cooked and the burgers were great.
I solved the issue. I found a round replacement grill at the local Home Depot, designed for a Weber grill. I have placed that grill inside the pit, which will raise the charcoal about 4 inches AND allow air to flow underneath the coals to enhance the cooking efficiency.
Haven't really used it as a fire pit yet, but we will. Just be aware that some adaptation may be needed for effective cooking! All in all, this was a great value!
