    PK360

    (EDIT: Let me preface this by stating I am not 100% serious with this post. There are obviously many caveats and this post is intended to spark discussion. Carry on.)

    Aside from smokers, there is literally no point in having any other grill. IE Weber kettle, Kamado, etc. IMO this is the one to rule them all. That's it, that's the post. Thoughts?

    That's fantastic that it works for you and you're loving it! But... "literally no point in having any other grill"?. Wellllll..... that might be some enthusiasm not felt by all 'round these parts! I suppose a Corvette is a fantastic car but I wouldn't say there's no point in owning a truck too. Ya know?

      Ha! I'm a collector too man, and as far as size I could see needing a bigger or more "toys", but in all honesty, I can't justify buying a kettle or another Kamado after purchasing this guy.

        Some people around here enjoy the experience of cookin' on different cookers. Some prefer the results for chicken from one cooker over another. And beef on another...

        If you are happy with your PK, good for you, but some here, (including me), might argue the point that a Kettle with a SnS is much more versatile than a PK.

          Pretty strong statement. But I have never cooked on a PK and actually have never seen one. So I certainly am in no position to disagree.

          However I will say that although one particular type of grill might be all one needs, having multiple choices is part of the fun and allows for variety in various ways. I have nine cookers in my outdoor arsenal and use them all. Some more than others for sure. But all get used. Like I said, it’s part of the fun. Wifey thinks I’m nuts though. 🤣🤷‍♂️

            But... If you already have a Weber Performer, there's no reason to get a PK360.

            It's a great tool. But it does the same thing other tools do.

              Right? Obviously, I was being a bit sarcastic, but there is always some truth to the sarcasm as well haha. Like I said, I put way too much money towards grilling and smoking (or at least my wife would tell you I do) and enjoy discussion about any bit of gear I get my hands on or am looking to try, but in this instance, given the versatility and the durability of the PK, it is very hard to beat, especially if you are cooking dinner for a smaller family.

              I love Weber, don't get me wrong. I feel they missed the ball with the pellet grill, but other than that, they are great. However (this is the only thing I disagree with), they are nowhere near as durable as the PK and don't have the same control built-in. I would definitely get a performer if that's what I wanted, no question.

                Yeah, but if you already have a Performer, do you need a 360?

              And in the darkness bind them.....

              I have a PK360 and absolutely love it. Fantastic grill and small smoker. I will be passing it down to my children and probably my children's children. Marine grade aluminum lasts a long, long time. I would not trade it for any other grill.

              But the PK360 still has a few limitations.

                I cook on my PK360 sometimes three times a week. I love it, but I am jealous of my Weber kettle friends who have a little more grill space than I do. If I had a bigger patio I'd have a Weber out there too!

              It does. I am with you on the durability. I think that was the final selling point for me. Best steaks I've ever had have come off the PK.

                Aaron Franklin says the same things in his book on steak. He uses a PK Original.

              I'm on my third WSJ in 25 years so I hear you on PK durability. I'll probably get their new little model if the GrillGrates people make a size to fit.

                I got grill grates for the pk360. They are pretty much unnecessary. A small flat cast iron griddle will cover the flat functionality and for grill side the PK360 can get plenty hot enough and grill grates aren’t needed.

                Of course for small things that fall through the grate or controlling flare ups GG works well, but I don’t even know where I put them now a few years later.

              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.
