    Have had one a few years now, still use it a couple times a month. Mostly steak, using grill grates. You like it.

      Thank you. It's ability to cook steaks was one of the biggest reasons for the purchase. I did get the grill grates so i'm stoked to give them a try.

        Thank you for the link. You cooks looked awesome...I hope to get on that level someday. Is that the grill more accessory you have? Should I get one? Thanks!

        Congratulations. You will love it. My favorite grill and small smoker. You will probably hand it down to your grandkids because it is virtually indestructible. Holds heat very well when you cook indirect. The only drawback, and very minor, is that it is not really portable. Yes, it has wheels, but meh….

        the new ones have ports for wires now I think (I had to drill a hole in mine). Again, congrats and have fun. Oh, and go by an ash can to hang under the ash clean out. I don’t understand why they don’t sell them as part of their accessories.

          Thank you! I will definitely get out to buy an ash can. I look forward to getting many years out of this grill.

        I used briquettes in the PK360 for a long time and someone convinced me to switch to lump. I like the lump better because it doesn't leave as much ash behind. Also, lump relights, so on a short cook I can shut off the air to stop the combustion and then use what's left over the next time I cook. I can cook about ten times before I have to clean out the ashes when I use lump charcoal.

          Thank you for your input. I have always used briquettes but, understand what you are saying about the amount of ash. What brand of Lump do you use?

          I am partial to the brands who profess to use American hardwoods. I've had some strange experiences with lump produced in countries where I'm not familiar with the wood. They tend to burn a lot hotter. I also have found that paying a little more steps you up to the level where you are less likely to find foreign objects in the bag along with your charcoal :-)

        I am happy for you.
        Even though it is not a pellet grill.
        Live long and BBQ.

          Congratulations. I've had one since they were first introduced in Dec of 2016. It's one of my favorite grills and I use it quite a bit. I've also done some longer cooks on it and it does quite well. You just have to experiment with how much lit coals you need for longer cooks.

            Nope, I just bought one, no holes for wires. Seems they overlook this.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            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’.
