Our final choice brings us back to the classic black three-legged pot. This is a sturdy grill that is easy on the eyes. No bells and whistles, just a reliable workhorse that, with its rust-resistant porcelain cooking grate, will give you years of grilling pleasure.
Although it’s a simple construction, this grill has some interesting features. The patented Char-Broil TRU-Infrared cooking system provides more even cooking with better temperature control, thanks to infrared technology. The infrared heat helps prevent hot and cold spots on the cooking surface and allows for faster cooking, less charring and less flare-ups.
I also like that the domed lid is hinged, unlike most kettle grills. With one hand, you can lift it off, enjoy a little wind protection on your cooking, and put it back on. Also, and again unlike most kettle grills, the cooking grate is adjustable, so you can raise and lower it to control the heat.
The Kettleman has a very nice 360 square inch cooking surface, a “non-through” grate and 360 degree air inlets, which allows for more even cooking. This is a very sturdy medium-sized grill that will suit anyone looking for quality, reliability and performance. For more information, click here.
