      Yeah, previous owner named it and did the artwork. What a name for a grill sporting bull horns! 🤣 Planning on repainting that lid.

        You are going to love it! Great find!! May I suggest adding the WiFi controller. If you call customer service you may be able to talk them down to $99. That was the price they offered original owners when they introduced it. It is now $199.

            I v'e had mine 5-6 years. I had posted, I fixed it, and put bigger wheel's on it, Not long after i got it. but I do not know how to find my own post. would like to show you the pictures. also I'D forget the wifi controller. Buy the front shelf instead. use it a while and you will have a relationship with Hammie. You will know exactly where your at after cook on it for a while. Mine never deviates 5 degrees. It may over compensate 5 degrees after opening the door to spritz or something. Then right back to desired temp in a few minutes.

                I had thought about the front shelf also. I can see the benefit after using it once. Why the wheels? Just for looks or do you move it around much? I don't plan on moving it once I figure out where it's home will be.

                  I keep it in the garage, roll it out for every use, Once a week at least. There is a 3/4 inch lip between my garage floor and asphalt drive. have turned it over before. It's great if you have a set up where you do not have to move it.

                  The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

                  the good one grill
                  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.

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  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.

                  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.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  kareubequ bbq 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.

                  masterbuilt gas 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'.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  NK-22-Ck Grill
                  Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
