The cast iron grill is SO COOL, if you’re looking for something different to entertain guests with, or adding some fun to “lite” camping trip then look no further. The only thing keeping me from providing a 5 star review are these things:
1) Weight. I couldn’t imagine hauling this thing too far on a camping trip unless your car was parked less than a mile away. But for cast iron it is on the lighter side.
2) Accesories. The components to the grill, except the tri-pod appear to be made rather cheaply and I question their durability over time. The “belt” is already showing wear from only two times use and the “hooks” on the metal plate that attach to the trip pod for close coal cooking are hard to attach and fall off easily.
3) Rust. You have to immediately clean and dry this thing or be left with traces of rust the next morning. (Needs to be properly seasoned better, even though they claim it was). And watch out for rain!
Honestly though I’m being super picky. It’s a great gift and something I will continually use - just hope they’ll make these little adjustments so it’s more of an hierloom. Cheers!
