With large grilling area and cast iron cooking grates, food is cooked very well. 2828 Pro passed all safety and quality standards and is available at retail websites in best price with super saver shipping.


Instructions are well-illustrated. All parts are clearly marked. Although the surface is huge, it makes the assembling quite easy (45 minutes).

It is durable and very suitable for backyard cooking. The removable cast iron grill plates are great cooking surfaces. The traditional barrel top with smokestack is especially designed to burn the charcoal efficiently and exhaust a lot of heat. Coal height can be adjusted. Its thermostat regulates the temperature very well. The concave ash collector is very easy to empty and allows plenty of air to get to the bottom of the coals which makes cooking very efficient.

The directions for cooking all kinds of meat are also provided. Its large grilling area gives enough space to large cuts of meat, whole fish, chicken, etc. feeding a large family all at once!


The grill has a heavy top so it will take two persons to lift it. Upon assembly, the directions should be followed to make it stand sturdy.

Its parts are overlooked sometimes. Check if the parts are complete, all bolt holes are aligned and drilled, and the grill grates fit upon its purchase.

The grill plates are made of cast iron and may rust very easily so it will be best to clean them after every use with oil instead of water. The wheels are large but are plastic and can be worn out easily. Its grilling surface has no big lip causing cylindrical meat products to easily roll over the edge. It will be better to cut the meat flat. Upon cooking, temperature is regulated very well thus temperature gauge turns off as it goes over 100 degrees.


Durable, high quality and affordable grill! Heavy, rustic and plastic so might need a lot of care.
