    Kudu Grills

    Anyone have any experience with these grills/outdoor pits? Looks interesting and what I would consider a sort of Santa Maria style cooker.

    I've been to that site before and not too long ago I'm thinking somebody here linked it. They look like a interesting open fire cooker but $500 might be a little steep.


      You could be right but my thinking was to get into open fire cooking for a lot less than most other cookers like that. I would love to have an Engelbrecht Braten 1000 but at 2800.00 plus is just to steep for me. I thought maybe someone on here has tried one of the Kudu grills and could shed some light on the quality of it or whether it was worth the price or not. I could not find it on here but Steven Raichlen has an advertisement of it on his website if that is worth anything.


        Firepits with cooking grates and rotisseries have been available for some time. There are many choices and many price ranges.

          I have seen some of those so called fire pit/grills and for the most part they are pretty flimsy and cheaply built. Not what I was looking for.

        This is a very common type of live fire cooker "braai" in SA and they range in price from R500 up to R1200 and at current exchange rate would make them pretty cheap. I think $500 that converted is R6000 is very expensive. I wonder where the KUDU Grill "Braai" is manufactured?

          I've read that Kudu is "made mostly" in Macon, Georgia. I don't have the details, but it's not uncommon for US companies to incorporate off shore sourced components such as grates, fasteners, handles, etc.

        I'd love to hunt greater Kudu, if that was included.

        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.

        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.
