As some of you know from a previous post, I bought the new STōK Tower charcoal grill.
The main thing that won me over vs the the Webber Kettle was the cast iron grill.
The others was the price, the versatility, and the ease of use (the charcoal is so easy to light a 5 year could do it).
Putting it together.....well, PITA and yeah, I am good at that type of stuff.
It is packed nicely and the instructions are easy to follow but the side panels were a little difficult to put on.
However, once they are on, the build quality is sold.
I left the lighting basket it in order to create two temperature zones and use less charcoal.
this is great if you are cooking for 1-2 people.
with only 20 pcs of charcoal and some wood chips the over all internal temp reached 300 degrees with 50-100 degrees lower on the outer ring alowing me to slow cook the food. I cooked a steak on the outer ring and wrapped some steak fries in foil and threw them on the center. Then right at the end the end tossed the steak on the middle.
Everything turned out fantastic.
Tomorrow, I think I will try my first pizza on the Que.
Over all, I am completely stoked about my new STōK.
