This 500 sq in. covered grill promotes fire safety by reducing floating cinders. The hinged cover holds in smoke and heat to give food that “smoked flavor”, and also helps protect the inner parts from the elements. The cover is made of 14 ga. sheet steel. The heavy firebox is made of 10 ga. steel plate with 11 ga. steel end panels. Both fire and cooking grates are fabricated of 1/2 inch dia. steel bars which are non-removable yet can be tipped out for easy cleaning. It has four draft vents and 360 degree rotation for heat and smoke control. These units are finished with a high heat, non-toxic, black enamel, and come with a 3 1/2 inch O.D. pedestal. Comes with one utility shelf, standard. A second shelf or warming basket can optionally be ordered.
