    Finally saw Gravity Series 560 in person

    I finally came across one of these bad boys in a local store last weekend. I didn't look for too long, as I was quickly losing sight of SWMBO, who kept on moving when I stopped to look at the 560. My main impression, having never seen anything but pictures, is that it was much smaller than I expected it to be. I guess that is why they have two larger sizes now. I guess I've never looked at the grate dimensions to realize the size of the main cooking chamber.

    I certainly hope that they continue to improve this, as I find the concept intriguing, and more options is a good thing. If I bought one of these it would have to be one of the two larger sizes to handle my expectations of what would fit on it. I guess I was expecting a cook chamber closer to my offset than to my kettle in size. Maybe I am jaded by too many big grills around here (24x36 grate on the offset, 18x33 on the gas grill, and 20x46 on the Camp Chef griddle). That said it seemed in line size-wise with a lot of the smaller pellet smokers, like the Camp Chef 24" series.

    It's small(ish) in a store display with other grills by it. But it has a decent amount of space. I cooked two full packers in mine.


      I'm still waiting for Old Country to start making theirs again, don't understand why they stopped.

      Maybe LSG will heed the call ????


        The 1040 can accommodate 3 half sheet pans.


          SWMBO, LOL, looked it up.
          The older I get, and the longer I'm married more SWMBO'd I get.

            Obedience to or at least humoring SWMBO is the key to a long and happy marriage!

          Char-Griller just rolled out their version which looks promising. We plan to review it soon.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
