Park-Style Backyard Charcoal Grill - Model# CPB-135
This is THE grill!
Solid, heavy steel, well made - even down to the threading on the mounts. The grid is thick steel rod, not like the crud on cheap charcoal grills. Setup and install was easy, just need a couple bags of concrete. I took the factory coating off the firebox and grid and seasoned it with some vegetable oil and burned some hardwood in it. This thing cooks awesome if you're a charcoal guy. Plenty of room for dinner for 6 - steaks, chicken, and dogs for the kids. A total man grill, and will use this over my gas and infrared.
Cons - didn't buy one sooner

ABSOLUTELY LOVE this grill!!
PROS.........Sturdy, easy initial set up (concrete in ground), large grilling area, easy to clean, it swivels, made in USA, the same kind you would use in a park, open style so the charcoal gets the air it needs to get hot fast and stay hot, grills the food perfectly, the price is great and it is a grill that is good looking!
We are so happy that we purchased this grill! We can not find one con about this grill. Would highly recommend this grill! This grill is sturdy and well made.
And this grill makes the food taste amazing!!!

Fun to own. Glad I bought it.
Heard of salmon on a cedar plank? Well start a simple fire and throw on some cedar wood and you have the same thing. I've had so much fun with my two boys making small fires, and cooking hot dogs. It's fun having a simple grill. Changing the grill hight is so easy, and this design does not catch on anything, unlike the other park grill designs. Easy to mount to a trailer.

We use these on our commercial properties to keep our residents from cooking on their patios (an incredible fire hazard). We spread them all over the property with several at each building and courtyard. The cost is significantly lower than anything else we could find with comparable quality. Our residents love them and they are easy to maintain. It doesn't get any better!

Just as expected
Many things are not quite what we expect, when purchased online. But this grill is certainly not one of them. It truly is the same one used by many parks and recreation depts. I bought one of these about 3 years ago to put at our family pavillion. It is very heavy duty, and the top swivels so that I can continually turn away from the way that the wind is blowing. Not all of these types of grills have a grate that tips back. I love that this one does, because it makes ash removal so easy. We are building our cabin now and can't wait to get another one of these and get grilling there. If you're thinking of one of these, GET IT! You will love it, and you won't beat the price (I tried).

The quality of this grill is fantastic, I checked out several sites, and from what I found, Northern tools price beats anyone else by at least a hundred dollars. I poured a square slab around the base of my grill support pipe 24 inches by 28 inches by 4 inches thick which gives it excellent support and makes it portable in case I want to move it around with a hand truck. It took 2 bags of quickcrete at $1.68 per bag to make the base. This grill is well worth the sale price that I paid for it. If you're looking for a quality grill that looks great and is built like a tank, this grill will do just fine. If you don't word your review just right, it will be censored so make sure you say only those things that make the censors happy. Otherwise your review will be rejected.
Anyway. Nice grill for the money.
