    Very interesting. I have a lot of questions. I am impressed with their website, scroll to make it all move.

      Very interesting and a great way to ensure an ongoing revenue stream by locking owners into their "briqs". What happens if they go out of business? You've got an $800 boat anchor.

        Like Bradley Smokers with their unique biscuits.

        Huskee - yes sir, and that was I started this whole journey on. The guy that cuts our lawns and plows in the winter has it, still going strong.

        Yeah, I could not buy into a proprietary fuel system.

      Yep that's interesting although a work in progress. I got on their mailing list. Let see what happens.

        If they are still around when my gasser gives up the ghost, this may be tops on the list. I will wait however, to be sure it's not a flop.

          I saw that as well. It looks like a potential PK Killer. If you can really turn the dial to set your temp it will be pretty slick.

            I have seen a couple grills recently that have their own proprietary charcoal. Other than the ongoing revenue stream it probably helps them design a temperature controlled charcoal grill like this. If they had everyone using 20 different kinds of charcoal it would be tougher to design a grill like this. Interesting concept.

              I am curious about the price of one puck, and how long it lasts...

                The propriety charcoal is cool in concept. It takes away the variables of it works as advertised. Anything to gain a little extra control is big.

                  A fan and a controller work pretty well though.

                They are pre ordering and shipping now. Best I can tell their briqs are $5 each and seem to be good for one use.

                  Pretty slick marketing. They know how to speak to those who are in the know. I'm gonna keep plugging away with my Kettle and PBC until the Lord answers my prayer for a Lang (and a flats boat).

                    Very slick.

                    I wonder if you can run it with regular briquettes. If not, you’re hooked to them for life.

                      It’s designed for theirs. Temp control depends on the shape and composition.

                      I’m sure we could hack it somehow but lots of other options in that price range.

                      I’m not about to buy one. I could achieve similar with a PK and a blower. And probably around the same total cost. I have all the grills I need (for now).

                      I might know a thing or two about temp control in a PK. ;-)
