The Keg 2000 Kamado Charcoal Grill from Broil King provides all the flavor of charcoal grilling, minus the guesswork and inconsistent heat. Its stout shape maintains stability on a patio or deck while you cook up dinner with all the fixings for your family and friends. Ashes collect in a lower tray for easy cleanup after, so you can kick back and relax while this steel charcoal grill does all the hard work.
Have used this for about a year. This steel Kamado grill heats up faster and with less coal than a ceramic grill would. It takes mine 3-4 minutes to reach 350’F with about 4 lbs of hardwood charcoal from the chimney. It also takes less time to cool down if you overshoot the temperature. It is much lighter and won’t shatter to pieces. It’s less hot to touch than a ceramic exterior. The cooking results like colour, taste & juiciness are exactly the same as with a ceramic. Mine has an excellent build quality with no air leaks and not even signs of rust even after a year in a relatively humid and warm European climate. If you smoke at low temp, the expensive ceramic alternatives exhibit better thermal inertia. For getting to warmer temperatures, the steel is a far superior material. Downsides: Upper vent lets in rain when open. Patience and attention is necessary when screwing the top lid in order to prevent air leaks. Thermometer reads air temperature inside the top lid, so a temperature probe on the grate is necessary. All in all this is probably the best steel Kamado on the market and far superior to the heavy and slow ceramic Kamados.
I've now had my Broil King Keg for 2 years. I've smoked brisket, pork legs, chickens, have grilled burgers, chicken wings, shrimp, etc. But what surprised me was that our families favorite use for the Keg is to get it up to 650F and use it as a pizza oven. It holds heat really well. My only complaint would be that the I rarely use the top stainless steel rack because it seems to get in the way. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
We bought one this summer, and we used it almost every evening at the cottage!! We love it so much, that we are going to buy a second one for the camp!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
