    Thoughts on the Everdure Hub by Heston Blumenthal?

    It's pretty but I don't think it would look that nice after a year outdoors. I never heard of these. Open face no cover so low and slow is out.

    There's one 1* review on WS of the Everdure Hub by Heston Blumenthal.

    There is a cover they sell for another additional $60.

    On the plus side, it has a pretty cool rotisserie... But I think not. not for $2K.

    You could get a Good One Open Range for that, and rig a rotisserie for it.

      Well, hmmm. If I want to pile all the charcoal on the grate and push a button to start it, and leave the lid off, I can already do that on my Weber Performer Deluxe. For a heck of a lot less money!

        What got me was the sound of how thin n flimsy that sheetmetal sounded when dumping the bag of charcoal on. A charcoal chimney would be a lot more reliable than a push button ignitor oafter 2 years use.

          That was my thought. Thin painted sheet metal that will rust in 6 months.

        Does anyone else shudder when people refer to "a barbecue" as a noun, referring to the grill/smoker? I hate that.

        And I think Weber had the push button gas charcoal igniter longer. Maybe not in England.

          Steve R. I try to be open-minded too, but I still hate it. To me,"BBQ" is the food & the sauce. Not the event (although I can tolerate that) and certainly not the device! I also shudder when I see flyers at work "Join us for a lunchtime BBQ in the parking lot- hot dogs and chips, $3". I get that BBQ is a broad term, but to this camper BBQ is brisket and ribs, not a 5 min hot dog cook in a parking lot. ItsAllGoneToTheDogs I say "shop" but I suppose shop is something you *do*, not a place!

        I think it's especially awesome that you lean over the thing to press the igniter button. What could possibly go wrong with that?

                The rotisserie set up on that is pretty epic. That’s all I see going for it.

                    The charcoal chamber is awfully small for something that size. No lid? So basically you are limited to thin cuts of meat the cook quickly. I'll pass.

                      Has a rotisserie, so I think I can go a bit longer and broader than just thin cuts.

                      Potkettleblack I do get that. I have a rotisserie for my Performer and while it cost a couple of hundred bucks the total package is still way cheaper and far more versatile than this thing.

                      Yeah, I’m not pimping for the grill. I see the appeal for folks who want a grill to entertain and look like something people might want to stand around. The rotisserie is kinda cool, but again, it’s for a particular person. An Arteflame would seem to have the same appeal.

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

                  Placeholder

                  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

                  Placeholder

                  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!

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  Placeholder

                  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.

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                  Placeholder

                  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.

Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  Placeholder

                  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.

                  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'.

                  Placeholder

                  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.
