This product ships to you in many pieces, 21 steps to assemble although not difficult. At first I was impressed with the product. Two steaks and four burgers later...not so much. We have used the grill two times in the last four weeks and Stainless finish on the front has discolored, paint on the rear of the unit...completely burned off. I do not expect the charcoal pan to last through the summer. While I understand that you get what you pay for...I was quite embarrassed to have given this grill as a gift.


Amazing Grill/Amazing Price

This is the 2nd of these grills I have purchased from Wal-Mart.The first being in 2012.\nI can guarantee with the build quality I would still be using the first grill for many years to come.Sadly I had to move and had no way to transport the grill(So I left it with a close friend).\n\nWhen the time came to purchase a grill this year it was a no brainer.\nThis grill is extremely well designed and engineered.The build quality is spectacular and would last for many grilling seasons with the proper cleaning and a protective cover.\n\nI have cooked every type and cut of meat imaginable on these heavy-duty cast iron grates.High gauge(thick)steel.Heavy-Duty bolts and screws and a great design make this possibly the finest charcoal grill under $100.00.\n\nThe features are nice(extremely well designed)without being too gimmicky.With no to little fear the crank for the charcoal grill will wear out or break.\n\nAll in All possibly the finest grill I have ever owned(regardless of price)\nHighest Recommendation!!!


Sturdy with nice features

Tired of over paying for the Weber name and getting flimsy junk.\n\nKiingsford grill is powder coated. Threaded connections are sturdy. Flip up table, temperature gage and bottle opener are brilliant.\n\nDoesn't shut completely enough to save charcoal.


Outstanding Grill at a Very Modest Price

Assembly of the grill was very simple, given the precise instructions and the thoughtful packaging of parts. Assembly time was less slightly over one hour, and one person can easily assemble it.\nThe quality of the grill exceeded my expectations. All the parts are made of high quality material that should provide years of service. The features on the grill (e.g., adjustable charcoal bed, charcoal bed access door for adding additional charcoal, folding side table, and top rack) are rarely found on a grill of this price. With the adjustable charcoal bed, four side vents, and thermometer, cooking on this grill is a pleasure. I have cooked a wide variety of foods over the past three weeks, and everything comes out perfectly. I have found that with the proper grill adjustments for the food being cooked, it is nearly impossible to burn anything. My only negative comment is that I cannot find a cover that will fit this grill. That was remedied by making my own grill cover.


great for the money

so let me start by saying after reading all the reviews good and bad if i offend anyone it is not intentional. okay so i have a nice gas grill and have pretty much used gas beacause of the convenience but for a while i have heard a lot of good things about lump hardwood charcoal. so for a hundred bucks i liked all the features on this grill and i wouldnt be in for too much if i did not like cooking with charcoal. a few of the reviewers said they had trouble with assembly or could not do it at all.missing parts etc. i felt assembly was straightforward there arent that many parts and you should be able to do it from the exploded diagram. all the screws and bolts are lettered to correspond with the instructions. so working on it by myself it took around an hour and a half,took my time and used loc-tite on all the screws so i wouldnt have to worry about re-tightning later. all good it is very sturdy and sits level. a few people said their food stuck badly,when you are cooking with any kind of cast iron it has to be seasoned properly. i did a small burn with probably a pound and a half of charcoal got the temp up to around 330 or so wiped the grates liberally with vegetable oil and let them season on the grill until it cooled,the grill held temperature for an hour or so and after that i had great slick finish. so today i grilled some hamburgers they were awesome. after your charcoal ashes over put the grids on let it get to around 350 and swab your grates with a paper towel soaked in cooking oil you wont have a sticking problem. you should give lump charcoal a try and get yourself a charcoal chimney spend the extra five or six bucks get a weber it is made very well and will hold a lot. its easy to adjust your dampers just take time to read the instructions. i am very pleased with my purchase.


I wouldn't buy it again

The price is great. Putting it together was what is expected. For the life of this grill, it finally fell apart after a year or two, I never and I repeat never cooked anything on it that didn't stick to the grate. I oiled it. I seasoned it. I put foil on it. Everything I cooked stuck to it. I like to grill chicken both for BBQ as well as Tikka Masala and I lost half the meat in the coals from sticking to the grates. Same with burgers. I wouldn't buy this one again. I'm looking at the barrel shaped one because it has porcelain covering the grates. I hope that makes the difference.


Great grill for a reasonable price.

We bought this grill in the fall of 2011--at the end of the season, at a Wisconsin Walmart. It was the floor model and it was clearance priced for $79. What a great grill, and we didn't even have to put it together!\n\nI don't know what the negative reviews were talking about--we used it year-round and the paint doesn't wear off, nor does it start to fall apart. Of course, WE didn't put it together.\n\nWe use a grilling pan to carry food and to cook on, so we've never had a problem with food sticking to the grates.\n\nWe like it so much, we're buying a second one just like it for our vacation home.


great product

Its a huge grill and you can't beat the price. I brought as a gift for my boyfriend and he loves it. Great grill for every day use!


A much better grill than the price would suggest.

This grill has all the features of a much high priced grill, including adjustable vents in the fire box and the lid. The charcoal bed raises and lowers effortlessly and ash clean-out is via a simple drawer. The cart is well balanced and easy to move, and all operator handles stay cool to the touch.\n\nI was at first disappointed at the gauge of the steel, but once assembled, it felt much more sturdy than the individual parts. After breaking it in and then grilling a couple sirloins, I know I made a good choice. And summer is just beginning! Hail to the King(sford).


Fantastic grill at a good price.

I bought this grill a few weeks ago already assembled from the store. Sure some of the parts have some give to them, but for the price point you really can't expect 1/4" steel. The features along with the price point really grabbed my attention with this grill. It is extremely easy to keep clean with the removable ash tray. The collapsible side table has hooks for holding your cooking utensils. You can store charcoal, wood chips and lighter fluid under this grill with the bottom rack. The temperature gauge on top is handy as well. I have used this grill a few times since I purchased it and it has been nothing short of a pleasurable experience. The most important thing to remember when cooking with charcoal is to give your coals plenty of time to burn and turn white before throwing your meat/veges on. If you do this and close your vents about 90% shut, thereby cooking with the heat from the smoke and not flames, you will produce some uber tastey treats.


Great grill for the money, but assemble carefully.

I am very pleased with this grill. I think it's a terrific value, especially with the sale price currently at $89. The display in Walmart was rickety and I had some concerns, but found that when assembled carefully it is very solid. I assembled it in about 1-1/2 hours and used it right away with great success. I have a couple recommendations for assembly.\n\n1. Use a little locktite on the threads of the nuts and bolts, but keep it off the parts of the screws where there needs to be movement, such as the crank for raising and lowering the charcoal grate and the adjustable vents. This will ensure that the grill stays assembled solidly for years.\n\n2. It will help to just lightly snug the screws until you've completed assembly. Many of the holes for the screws have wiggle room, and if you tighten them all down it may make it hard to align some of the later parts. That's probably why some have complained about that.


Great Charcoal Bar B que

I decided I really wanted a Charcoal Bar b que, nothing tiny like my last one. I went on line and looked at various stores and found my Kingsford grill. I also wanted it that day, so when I checked on how long it would take it said same day which I was assuming was a trick to make me pay and then have to wait, but NO it said same day and even gave me a pick up time. So 3 hours later I am happily picking up my Grill and loving it. I find charcoal grilling tastes better and it was my idea to buy it and I am set for the summer.... Its a good looking grill and big enough for large amounts of food, so far I have put 12 hamburgers and 8 dogs and 1 chicken on it and it all fit.... Happy Summer everyone!!!!!!


For the money, great!

This grill is great for the price. Assembly was easy, did it alone. The only problem I have, is rust. Even though covered and under shelter, I was surprised at the amount of rust.


Easy to put together.

I wish I knew that it had to be assembled... BUT, it was easy to do, even for a woman! There was a step that said it REQUIRED 2 people, but it doesn't know that just one of me would do the job! ;)


Great grill for the money

I've direct and indirect grilled, as well as low and slow bbq on this grill, for the money it does everything I could ask for. Took my time on the assembly and this grill is very solid considering the materials it is made from. I'm starting my third year with this grill and when I have to replace it, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the same model again. I'm a year round griller and don't baby my grills. That being said, I expect to get another two - three years our of this grill, 5-6 years for a less than $100 grill that isn't covered or moved indoors is quite good.

Great Grill for light use (4-7 time a yr)

The grill was purchased for our annual Easter cookout in 2011, so its going on it 4th season. Very nice features: bottle opener, fold out table (6 lb weight limit?), hooks to hang utensils, built in thermometer, adjustable tray for charcoal.\nWe use this grill for small family reunions (12 ppl mostly adults & 3 children) several times a yr.\nI have cooked bratwurst, sausage, chicken, fajitas, baby back ribs, hot dogs and burgers with no problems at all. The meat does not stick. I suggest using cleaning products that do not damage the porcelain-coated grill. Read cleaning product labels carefully to get the most of your grill. As far as the overall quality of the materials I think they are just fine for light use. Im not so sure it will hold up to heavy use and I don't think the materials used are meant for heavy use. It does have a little rusting but it IS almost 4 yrs. If you clean it well after every use and keep it dry it will do just fine. I have been very satisfied with this little grill and would recommend it.\nAs far as assembly, it is COMPLETELY disassembled when you open it. It took me about 3 hrs to assemble on my own with no assistance.


I Like This Grill

FOR THE PRICE: this is a great grill. Plenty of grillin' space and the warming rack is good for slower cooking items or for veggies. It has four hooks on the end of the table to hang various accessories and the table folds up and down easily. The rack for lowering and raising the coals works really well and I like the pull out ash tray that makes it easy to clean out #no scooping or turning upside down required#. The grates are cast iron #not porcelain coated# so you do have to keep them seasoned to prevent rusting. I use an olive oil spray after cleaning them and have had no problem with rust. It did take a while to assemble #I took my time and checked everything as I went--took a little over an hour# but I think it was worth the effort.


Great design but....

For a $100 grill is a great design and really works well on all meats. I use this as a smoker, a grill and all around cooking unit. But the construction materials are very poor and after a year of weekend use (covered at all times when not in use) there is significant rust everywhere where moisture can collect. If you choose this grill I highly recommend buying a few cans of high temp stove paint and coating everything but the grill racks on this before/while you assemble it.\n\nThe ash tray on the bottom is almost rusted thru in spots due to moisture build up on super thin poorly coated sheet metal. The front door handle rusted from the back and i had to rig a new handle after about 5 months. I would buy this again but def coat it first with proper paint so that it will last longer than a season or two.


Sturdy grill with large cooking area.

I bought this grill because my brother in law lost my original. It was supposed to be a temporary fix. This grill has exceeded my expectations. I have use it 10 times so far. Easy to watch and control your cooking temperatures. Large grilling area. Secondary shelf can be easily removed for things like Beer Can Chicken. Assembly was fairly easy. Overall the grill is very sturdy. How ever, I do recommend reinforcing the handle to the top with washers. The screw heads are barley larger than the through hole. The removable bottom makes cleanup very easy. The actual grill grates are very sturdy. Be sure to clean them well before first use. They smell funny right out the box. It also has a bottom access for adding coals to the fire for those times one may indirect grill. It also looks pretty cool with the bottle opener and shelf with 4 hooks for your utensils. Great value and it was on sale!!!


Great Grill

I do a LOT of outdoor cooking. I have a Broilmaster P3 gas, a Uniflame Infared, a 22 Weber kettle, and I picked this up 2 seasons ago. I love it! I can do things on this grill that I wouldn’t dream of on my expensive gas models. It cooks with all kinds of fuel. Wood, charcoal, lump charcoal, you name it. As it’s a charcoal it takes some time to figure out how to control the heat. The vents are sorta useless. I simply get the heat close to temp and prop the lid up to maintain it at desired temp. I think the Weber 22 takes a bit less forethought cooking stuff but the Kingsford is so much more versatile. I most always set it up for indirect cooking and almost always cook off the upper rack. Zero flare ups that way and you rarely burn anything. Other than well used and some tightening of some nuts and bolts sometimes, Ive had zero issues with it. If you know how to use a Weber Kettle and are looking at cooking larger quantities and more varied foods for 98 bucks you cant beat this grill! Thanks Walmart for carrying this.

Everything I cooked stuck to it. I like to grill chicken both for BBQ as well as Tikka Masala and I lost half the meat in the coals from sticking to the grates. Same with burgers. I wouldn't buy this one again. I'm looking at the barrel shaped one because it has porcelain covering the grates. I hope that makes the difference.


great for the money

so let me start by saying after reading all the reviews good and bad if i offend anyone it is not intentional. okay so i have a nice gas grill and have pretty much used gas beacause of the convenience but for a while i have heard a lot of good things about lump hardwood charcoal. so for a hundred bucks i liked all the features on this grill and i wouldnt be in for too much if i did not like cooking with charcoal. a few of the reviewers said they had trouble with assembly or could not do it at all.missing parts etc. i felt assembly was straightforward there arent that many parts and you should be able to do it from the exploded diagram. all the screws and bolts are lettered to correspond with the instructions. so working on it by myself it took around an hour and a half,took my time and used loc-tite on all the screws so i wouldnt have to worry about re-tightning later. all good it is very sturdy and sits level. a few people said their food stuck badly,when you are cooking with any kind of cast iron it has to be seasoned properly. i did a small burn with probably a pound and a half of charcoal got the temp up to around 330 or so wiped the grates liberally with vegetable oil and let them season on the grill until it cooled,the grill held temperature for an hour or so and after that i had great slick finish. so today i grilled some hamburgers they were awesome. after your charcoal ashes over put the grids on let it get to around 350 and swab your grates with a paper towel soaked in cooking oil you wont have a sticking problem. you should give lump charcoal a try and get yourself a charcoal chimney spend the extra five or six bucks get a weber it is made very well and will hold a lot. its easy to adjust your dampers just take time to read the instructions. i am very pleased with my purchase.


Outstanding Grill at a Very Modest Price

Assembly of the grill was very simple, given the precise instructions and the thoughtful packaging of parts. Assembly time was less slightly over one hour, and one person can easily assemble it.\nThe quality of the grill exceeded my expectations. All the parts are made of high quality material that should provide years of service. The features on the grill (e.g., adjustable charcoal bed, charcoal bed access door for adding additional charcoal, folding side table, and top rack) are rarely found on a grill of this price. With the adjustable charcoal bed, four side vents, and thermometer, cooking on this grill is a pleasure. I have cooked a wide variety of foods over the past three weeks, and everything comes out perfectly. I have found that with the proper grill adjustments for the food being cooked, it is nearly impossible to burn anything. My only negative comment is that I cannot find a cover that will fit this grill. That was remedied by making my own grill cover.


Sturdy with nice features

Tired of over paying for the Weber name and getting flimsy junk.\n\nKiingsford grill is powder coated. Threaded connections are sturdy. Flip up table, temperature gage and bottle opener are brilliant.\n\nDoesn't shut completely enough to save charcoal.


Amazing Grill/Amazing Price

This is the 2nd of these grills I have purchased from Wal-Mart.The first being in 2012.\nI can guarantee with the build quality I would still be using the first grill for many years to come.Sadly I had to move and had no way to transport the grill(So I left it with a close friend).\n\nWhen the time came to purchase a grill this year it was a no brainer.\nThis grill is extremely well designed and engineered.The build quality is spectacular and would last for many grilling seasons with the proper cleaning and a protective cover.\n\nI have cooked every type and cut of meat imaginable on these heavy-duty cast iron grates.High gauge(thick)steel.Heavy-Duty bolts and screws and a great design make this possibly the finest charcoal grill under $100.00.\n\nThe features are nice(extremely well designed)without being too gimmicky.With no to little fear the crank for the charcoal grill will wear out or break.\n\nAll in All possibly the finest grill I have ever owned(regardless of price)\nHighest Recommendation!!!


This product ships to you in many pieces, 21 steps to assemble although not difficult. At first I was impressed with the product. Two steaks and four burgers later...not so much. We have used the grill two times in the last four weeks and Stainless finish on the front has discolored, paint on the rear of the unit...completely burned off. I do not expect the charcoal pan to last through the summer. While I understand that you get what you pay for...I was quite embarrassed to have given this grill as a gift.


Great Grill

I do a LOT of outdoor cooking. I have a Broilmaster P3 gas, a Uniflame Infared, a 22 Weber kettle, and I picked this up 2 seasons ago. I love it! I can do things on this grill that I wouldn’t dream of on my expensive gas models. It cooks with all kinds of fuel. Wood, charcoal, lump charcoal, you name it. As it’s a charcoal it takes some time to figure out how to control the heat. The vents are sorta useless. I simply get the heat close to temp and prop the lid up to maintain it at desired temp. I think the Weber 22 takes a bit less forethought cooking stuff but the Kingsford is so much more versatile. I most always set it up for indirect cooking and almost always cook off the upper rack. Zero flare ups that way and you rarely burn anything. Other than well used and some tightening of some nuts and bolts sometimes, Ive had zero issues with it. If you know how to use a Weber Kettle and are looking at cooking larger quantities and more varied foods for 98 bucks you cant beat this grill! Thanks Walmart for carrying this.


Sturdy grill with large cooking area.

I bought this grill because my brother in law lost my original. It was supposed to be a temporary fix. This grill has exceeded my expectations. I have use it 10 times so far. Easy to watch and control your cooking temperatures. Large grilling area. Secondary shelf can be easily removed for things like Beer Can Chicken. Assembly was fairly easy. Overall the grill is very sturdy. How ever, I do recommend reinforcing the handle to the top with washers. The screw heads are barley larger than the through hole. The removable bottom makes cleanup very easy. The actual grill grates are very sturdy. Be sure to clean them well before first use. They smell funny right out the box. It also has a bottom access for adding coals to the fire for those times one may indirect grill. It also looks pretty cool with the bottle opener and shelf with 4 hooks for your utensils. Great value and it was on sale!!!


Great design but....

For a $100 grill is a great design and really works well on all meats. I use this as a smoker, a grill and all around cooking unit. But the construction materials are very poor and after a year of weekend use (covered at all times when not in use) there is significant rust everywhere where moisture can collect. If you choose this grill I highly recommend buying a few cans of high temp stove paint and coating everything but the grill racks on this before/while you assemble it.\n\nThe ash tray on the bottom is almost rusted thru in spots due to moisture build up on super thin poorly coated sheet metal. The front door handle rusted from the back and i had to rig a new handle after about 5 months. I would buy this again but def coat it first with proper paint so that it will last longer than a season or two.


I Like This Grill

FOR THE PRICE: this is a great grill. Plenty of grillin' space and the warming rack is good for slower cooking items or for veggies. It has four hooks on the end of the table to hang various accessories and the table folds up and down easily. The rack for lowering and raising the coals works really well and I like the pull out ash tray that makes it easy to clean out #no scooping or turning upside down required#. The grates are cast iron #not porcelain coated# so you do have to keep them seasoned to prevent rusting. I use an olive oil spray after cleaning them and have had no problem with rust. It did take a while to assemble #I took my time and checked everything as I went--took a little over an hour# but I think it was worth the effort.


Great Grill for light use (4-7 time a yr)

The grill was purchased for our annual Easter cookout in 2011, so its going on it 4th season. Very nice features: bottle opener, fold out table (6 lb weight limit?), hooks to hang utensils, built in thermometer, adjustable tray for charcoal.\nWe use this grill for small family reunions (12 ppl mostly adults & 3 children) several times a yr.\nI have cooked bratwurst, sausage, chicken, fajitas, baby back ribs, hot dogs and burgers with no problems at all. The meat does not stick. I suggest using cleaning products that do not damage the porcelain-coated grill. Read cleaning product labels carefully to get the most of your grill. As far as the overall quality of the materials I think they are just fine for light use. Im not so sure it will hold up to heavy use and I don't think the materials used are meant for heavy use. It does have a little rusting but it IS almost 4 yrs. If you clean it well after every use and keep it dry it will do just fine. I have been very satisfied with this little grill and would recommend it.\nAs far as assembly, it is COMPLETELY disassembled when you open it. It took me about 3 hrs to assemble on my own with no assistance.
