    Grilla Outdoor Kitchen Review

    Click image for larger version  Name:	7F06F71C-7E05-4AAB-9E55-BC317D66E343.jpeg Views:	24 Size:	3.93 MB ID:	1099816 We redid our patio last year and expanded it a little so we bought new patio furniture and realized we needed some more outdoor stuff. I told my wife that Grilla makes an out door kitchen and she said, “So buy it.”

    I pulled it up online and she liked it. I didn’t really about it too much but she was right in that we needed something. I have a dedicated cabinet for my BBQ stuff that wasn’t really convenient, my grilling tools were spread all over and my WSM stuff and pellets for the Silverback were in the garage. I pulled the trigger on Saturday in August. I did the ribs on the WAsm and the silverback will be used for homemade pizza to go along with it. We redid our patio last year and expanded it a little so we bought new patio furniture and realized we needed some more outdoor stuff. I told my wife that Grilla makes an out door kitchen and she said, “So buy it.”

    Interestingly enough I happened to be driving to Grand Rapids Michigan the day after I purchased it for work and I drove right by Grilla’s headquarters in Holland Michigan. I thought about stopping by and just to check out the kitchen to see if I made the right call. But I knew it would be awesome so I passed. Got to beat that Chicago traffic.

    it took about a week to get here because it’s shipped all the way from Texas. When the freight company called me they said that it weighed 450 pounds. It came in three large boxes on top of a pallet and that gave me a great excuse to finally go out and buy a dolly. This thing is built like a tank. It was easy to put together and it’s a great purchase.

    This thing is very solidly built and it is probably one of the best purchases I’ve made this year. Some people Think that the drip tray access is a little tight, and they could be right but I don’t know as it hasn’t been an issue for me yet. Other than that I can’t think of anything else that be considered a con.

    Very nice set-up and write up. Thanks.


      Very Very nice indeed.


        Just ignore me as I live through you vicariously!

        Definitely a setup that I would like to emulate. Great review.

        Have you ever thought about adding the Grilla Kong module?

          Perhaps down the road one day. When I bought the Silverback I wondered if I’d stop using my WSM. Glad to say no. Used both yesterday and it was windy here in the Chicago burbs. I had a BGE at a rental house in Florida a few years ago and I didn’t like it. Of course had I bothered to actually research how to use it I’m sure I would have loved it.

          Yeah, if I ever had the space and money, the grilla kitchen would be my pick too.

        Great review. Shame on me for not doing the same. You beat me to it and did a better write up than I would have. Sure not going to try and steal your thread but I also recently did the very same. Started out with the Silverbac and ended up purchasing the Primate as well. Very very happy in all areas so far. Great product, solid build and very responsive service.

        We moved to a new location a year ago and also wanted to revamp our cooking area. This setup was exactly what we were looking for.

          How do you like your primate? Everyone dings it on the shallow hood.

          Deeremaxx I really like it. Very versatile as a griddle because of the cover, but I also have the 2/3rd's griddle which allows me to also use the grill. I also dinged it at first because of the hood, but it is a griddle first. If I need to cook something taller I use the smoker.

        Nice looking setup!


          Very nice write up and photos, much appreciated. Enjoy, and greetings from the county!


            Ok, every onced in awhile some one hems & haws & asks fer help to pick & buy a grill & “what’s the best one & what do ya think” kinda stuff AND this dude goes out & buys a kitchen. Well ding dang & shake the ash from my basket. Rill nice goin there radio, rill nice!


              Those are really nice setups. I wish I could say I was going to go out and do the same...


                Thanks for sharing. I never knew Grilla made these!


                  Very nice!

                        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.

                        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.

                        3 burner gas grill

                        The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
