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

the good one grill

The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

    Shuffling the deck....

    Well, I’ve decided to downsize somewhat. Sold the GMG pellet grill on Craigslist. MCS has taken hold and I’m fairly certain a WSCG for $1,100 is a good deal even if the cooking grates are corroded(display model exposed to chlorine in the air in the showroom). I have a 26 “ Weber, a PBC, jumbo joe, and an M1.
    Dont think I can resist the MCS much longer, hoping that I’ll eventually sell one of my current grills if I bring home the WSCG. Any sage advice or encouragement is greatly appreciated. I’m going to see the grill today to investigate the “corrosion” firsthand. No idea which one I’d sell though, since I love them all.

    I would step back and ask myself a few questions and then base my decisions on those answers. First what is your primary grilling style and quantity? Grilling, low and slow, roasting, baking, pizza? Cook for 2, 4, 6, or more? Second, what are your secondary or occasional needs in regard to style, location, and volume? Finally, what does your space, budget, and time to take care of extra grills dictate? Happy shopping.

      Not to be re-hashing the sale, but just curious why you decided to get rid of your pellet grill? The WSCG is a cooking machine, but to be honest, with fan control you can make that 26" kettle do almost the same thing. I'm with LA Pork Butt, you may want to step back and look at your needs versus your wants.

        Troutman I rarely used the pellet grill and it was taking up space in my garage. I want the WSCG and if I get one then I won’t need the 26” anymore. I think you and LA Pork Butt have solved my dilemma.

      I'm sorry that I can't offer too much sage advice. If I had the funds, and the okay from the CFO, I would get the WSCG in heartbeat. Then I would worry about what to sell later. But that is coming from someone who has 5 grills already. I would probably sell either the PBC or the 26" kettle.

        So after seeing the grill it appears the lower grates for charcoal have oxidized or turned a reddish rust color.
        The cooking grates are pristine. Do you think the oxidation will burn off or can be scraped off?
        Other than that the grill looks great and they want $1100 for it. Will it fit through the front door fully assembled?

          Cooking grates aren't that expensive but at the end of the day it's going to have red hot charcoal on it so what's the difference. I think all my cooking grates end up rusting to some extent, who cares?

          What he said. Get a replacement, or just leave it. It’s just gonna hold glowing charcoal anyway.

          Given the description and hype, seems like the M1 should have had you covered. Any reasons why not?

          Comment


          • Top | #8
            I love them both, and I like to cook on different grills depending on the weather and how I’m feeling.
            For instance this time of year it rains everyday and for those days I’ll be using my Weber because it won’t rust. The M1 is too big and heavy to move under truss every time it begins to rain. I think moving forward I want to use that grill more for stickburning. It’s easy to roll the Weber out of the rain if needed.

              So, I was able, barely, to fit the grill through the front door by turning it sideways and pulling it inside by lifting by the legs and opening the lid simultaneously. For a minute there I thought I might have to remove the front door from the hinges. Cooked chicken leg quarters last night and they came out great!
              Now I just need to hook up the propane tank and get a good safe grill scraper/cleaner and maybe a grill cover. Can’t wait to cook ribs and brisket on this 👶

                  A fine choice. Enjoy!

                  But...you WILL need a cover...if for no other reason than to hide it from the other grills that will no doubt become jealous and beat the bejeabus out of it in the middle of the night. LOL (I keep all my cookers covered for just that reason.)

                    surfdog trying to decide it the Weber cover is worth the $64 price or if the amazon option at half the price is just as good. Duh, I can’t believe I even need to wrestle with that question. I don’t think my cover needs to say Weber lol.

                    Butchman I got mine at Home Depot for like 32 bucks... It says "Ravenna" on it but it's not as dark as it looks online.
                    I got it specifically because I DIDN'T want it to scream WEBER on the side.

                    First, I'm not a brand snob...as with guitars, I don't care what name is on the headstock so long as it plays well. I also didn't want somebody peaking over the fence seeing a $2k grill sitting there...next to another $2K+ grill...plus all the rest. Make 'em work for it. LOL

                    Oh, and FWIW...while Classic Accessories claims it's for the WSCGC...it's seems more like a generic kamado w/ cart cover.
                    It works a treat...but a couple of the straps clearly weren't designed for this grill. They're not needed, but just wanted to point that out.

                  You're going to love cooking on that WSCG, Butchman . You'll be looking for excuses to fire it up. Congrats on that great new toy.
