Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for charcoal cooking period Just bought was using a weber performer grill and was happy but always dirty and use of fuel was enormous. First cook on the Keg was roast chickens and pork tenderloin with clean hands easy to spark up and temperature was much more consistent than the weber smoking was good and with the dyfuser the meat was totally off direct heat..... Let me tell you the meat was the absolute juiciest and best I have eaten flavourful land downed to perfection This is the grill I should have started with but was afraid due to the cost but I wish I would have purchased sooner simply clean, simple and delicious

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this grill! I won a prize from my work and it was advertised as a medium green egg. Before I claimed it I did LOTS of research on similar grills and asked friends that owned Green Eggs and after careful consideration, I chose to use the $$ that would have gone to a GE to a BK Keg. With all the versatility of this cooking machine and especially the portability I have no regrets. I've cooked everything from a Thanksgiving turkey and extra thick rib eye steaks to pizza and everything came out perfect. The steaks are some of the best I've ever whipped up. My wife is getting tired of me wanting to cook everything on it though. For Christmas guess what I got...lots of grilling accessories and gift cards to our local BBQ center. I think she's happy as well!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Grilling I purchased this product a few months ago. It is well constructed and assembly was simple. I have been very impressed with the efficiency and flexibility. For low and slow smoking or extremely hot grilling it handles both equally well. I am continuoulsy amazed at how fuel efficient it is. I can do a six hour smoke on one load of charcoal and have plenty left over for high temp (600+) gilling of steaks the next day. This is one purchase that I am definitely getting my monies worth out of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever!!! Tough And durable for kamando cooking.....very capable of temps 200 degrees and up and holds temp spot on. Living in a winter climate was looking for something that was insulated enough to cook in cold weather, does the job very nicely. Will purchase again in 10 - 15 years when this one wears out

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design The temperature of a kamado cooker is controlled by air flow. There is an adjustable vent on the bottom and an adjustable vent on the top. Very small changes in air flow make big temperature differences. This grill leaks air very badly around the ash pan / lower vent assembly at the bottom of the keg. I was unable to get my temperature below 400f for over 8 hours on a test fire. The next day, I covered the offending assembly with electrical tape and was able to maintain a temperature of 250f for hours. It's shameful that a brand new grill needs to be taped up Red Green style to function properly. Shame on you Broil King!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome ribs I will start by telling you i haven't done a lot of outdoor grilling, but I loved the ribs at the restaurant, but always hated paying the priced for my favorite meat. In summary, I will never eat ribs away from home again. If low and slow is what you are looking for, this is it. I have only had the Keg for a few months, but this is now the weekend activity of choice. I like to weight and the fact that it can be easily moved on the large wheels. The detachable side tables make cleanup extremely easy. The outside smooth metal finish also aids in the cleanup process. I bought too much charcoal, because the Keg hardly uses any for a 6 hour cook. We have done pizza, steaks, turkey, chicken, ribs. If prices come down, I plan on a large brisket next. If you are a new comer, this will be the first and last pit you buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing!!! from pulled pork to pizza Super heat for searing meat. slooowww cook for smoked chickens, fish, veggies I cook everything on this grill and it all come out great. I use different woods for smoking with out it all starting to taste the same because the porcelain liner doesn't absorb each wood so you aways get the great taste of each wood in your food. I love It !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Keg but with small fault Got the keg on a business rewards site. Chose it over the "green" smoker due to reviews I had read. I am very happy with its performance. The only thing lacking is a balanced cast iron grill top. When you use the Multi-tool to lift out the cast iron grill it wants to tip to one side and can land on your foot if your not careful. Other than this minor inconvenience if your on the fence about the Keg.....you won't be disappointed and be shocked how well made the keg is. I have done pizzas, low and slow ribs ( the Keg easily maintains 225 for long periods with a good diffuser) and seared steaks. My friends that have the "green smoker" feel that this Keg is as good as theirs if not better.
