    PK Grills

    I’ve read lots of positive comments about PK grills (on this site and in Aaron Franklin’s book on Steak. Yet few dealers carry the product or have any knowledge of the product. If these are so good, why are they so difficult to find?

    Distribution might be a little more regional. Home Depot carries them, either in-store or order online. These are rather high end grills, lots of box stores carry cheaper grills. I find these at Mom & Pop stores in small towns or tourist towns all through Texas. You can order from their website too, or Amazon.

      I've never seen one in a store, I ordered my PK360 directly from them.

        Good question. I never knew they existed when I first started. Shame they aren't more readily available.

          PK has been around since 1952. Same year Weber started. They are pretty well known among barbecue aficionados.

            I'm some what happy that they are not available in a store near me. I know my marriage might be better for it. I have a 26 Weber on my have to own list, but those PK grills really have me intrigued. I also want some sort of Santa Maria grill, and would love to have a wood fired pizza oven built outside.. I have to give somewhere.... likely is the pk grill that just has to be a thing of envy.

              If you are interested in buying one, I would recommend signing up for PK’s email list. They regularly offer deals on their lineup. I ordered my PK360 directly from PK and am very happy with it.

                Spacecase As mentioned by their email deals heat up when the weather warms. Also look at the amazing ribs member deals, I scored a free cover when I purchased my 360 a couple years ago. The 360 is a great cooker and portable, as the name implies....

                  au4stree, is it really portable? It looks pretty beefy.

                  Yessir, it comes off the pedestal and we are off cooking to/fro. I’m saying it’s the easiest, but compared to others, I’m happy with it. klflowers.

                Ordered mine direct from PK. Great grill for smaller cooks. I'd recommend it.

                  Barbecue Island has a couple of models on their showroom floor if you want to fly over to Scottsdale and check them out.

                    Check with your local Ace Hardware Dealer, if they don't stock them , they are available through the distribution center and the dealer can order them for you. SKU# 8017407 for the PK360 and #8017409 for the cover.

                      I bought one last spring. After much studying, I bought it direct from PK due to free shipping and a promotion. This avenue really was the most attractive from a cost perspective. I bet this is still the best route although you can buy them through Ace, Amazon and other dealers.

                      As someone has already suggested, get on their email list and you'll get the promotions.

                      BTW, the packaging on the PK360 was unbelievable. They are doing their best to avoid damage in shipment.

                        Just order it online. They’re rock solid cookers, so you can’t go wrong.

                        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.

                        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.
