STŌK™ Tower Grill

Average User Rating:
  • The STOK Tower™ allows you to do more with charcoal using the STOK Grill Insert System. Swap out the grill grate for the included pizza stone or any other STOK Grill Insert to bring that great charcoal flavor to any and every meal. The Tower™ comes with an integrated charcoal chimney to get grilling faster while the built in ash canister traps charcoal dust for quick, easy clean up. The porcelain coated 22.5” fire box and the porcelain coated, cast-iron cooking grate provide optimum cooking and durability.http://www.stokgrills.com/grills/tower.php

    "Great Heavy Duty Grill"
    Ease of Use:
    Purchase Date:
    Jan 7, 2012
    Purchase Price:
    Pros - Weight, Intake, Exhaust, Fit & Finish, Cast Iron, Ash Catcher
    I had looked at these a year or so ago, and liked them but he price tag was $169.99. So last week, or whatever reason, they were on clearance here in AZ at some Home Depot's, I had to get one..just had to. Clearance price of $49.99!

    Got it out of box and put together.. Probably took about an hour. Crescent wrench and screw driver was the only things needed

    Heavy duty thermo recessed in the lid. Great shiny orange porcelain coat on lid.

    I was really impressed with this (doesn't take much). Fits snug and feels like quality. Style is nice too.

    Cast iron grate & grill grate insert

    Charcoal Chimney installed in the center can be removed at any time

    Ash catcher, and air intake control

    Legs, wheels, and base plate. The wheels are heavy thick plastic.

    1st load of charcoal goin in to burn out the junk.

    Comes w/ a "paper cage" which sits up in ash catcher for igniting. I just set in 2 parafin cubes instead

    Almost a full chimney load.

    And she's off

    I left the lid on & went outside. This thing got hot fast.

    Here's how to control the air intake. Lil diff than my other kettles but similar to a Gold One Touch
    Intake all the way open

    The thin blue

    Exhaust all the way open

    Lifted the center grate w/ the included tool, and spread out the chimneys worth of coals, and let it burn for awhile

    Now onto the food. I cut up some whole wangs, and cut off wing tips

    Mad Hunky Hot Wang Rub of course

    Loaded up the chimney again, w/ much less charcoal this time.

    The lid has 2 hanging hooks which is nice.

    All fired up. Chimney stayed in the center for this one, so I could indirect the wings w/ some pear wood.

    Cruisin along steadily @ 350+

    Here they are about 30 mins later.

    Centered them all over the chimney for a few mins to get a nice final char

    Split em up into 2 batches. Warmed up some Texas Petes Buffalo and Honey Mustard on the stove.

    So far, I've got nothing but good things to say about the STOK. It was a heavy duty grill. The box was over 60 lbs, and you can feel it when you go to move it around. My Webers will always dominate, but this thing at half the price was 100% worth it. Call around if you're in the market, I've found a couple Home Depot's still selling em at that price. You've got my recommendation on it

    The inserts rest on a small lip, which makes the actual hole diameter about 11.5 inches. I have a picture of grill and insert with a tape measure. Anyway, it's less than 13 inches.

    Dumb question. Can one of you that have this give me the Diameter of the hole on the inside of the grate? I am looking for something like this for a different cooker and I would need it to be 13". I see that the insert is 12", but noone lists the actual hole diameter.
    Thank You.

    Home Depot liquidated this line in my area at the end of 2011. My wife picked one up for $49.00 and bought every available add-on at a big discount. It was a great price for an introductory charcoal kettle grill. The cast iron grill grate and removable center piece are nice features.

    Glad to see your review on this. I got one as a b'day gift in Nov after telling the GF I was fondling it in HD. I did the burnoff but got involved with holiday stuff and haven't grilled on it yet. Your wings look outstanding and I'm motivated now to get it out. I did get a larger pizza stone from Costco for doing the pizza making. I was impressed by the heavy weight grates and overall decent feeling construction of the unit. At the time the price was $70, less than half so you did even better on price. I just couldn't justify paying the Weber price and liked the height on the Stok. There is a Stok page on FaceBook if you're interested. http://www.facebook.com/stokgrills

    I just searched my HD and it is still listed at a New Price Of $169.00. I believe somone made a terrible mistake and you definitely reaped the rewards. I would love to have one and I have yet to hear or read any bad reviews. Great score on your part.
