Heavy-Duty Park-Style Grill
Adjustable Park Grill
All in all, a heavy, well made hunk of steel. Would be suitable for a public area installation. Construction doesn't allow people to walk off with parts Even mounting pipe is heavy duty, would weld grill to pipe in a public install. Only disappointment is that it is shipped banded in pieces with no protection. Mine received a few minor dings from banding & shipping handling to store. Touch-up paint will hide . . .. Highly recommend this as it should last a long - -long time.
Well worth th$40. over the cheaper unit.

Heavy Duty Park Grill
After mulling over buying one of these for some time, I found Northern to offer the best price and shipping. Once I received the grill, I scrounged a wheel/rim from the salvage yard with an appropriate center hole and welded a short length of pipe inside the whole and closed the lower end. My grill's support post fits perfectly into this pipe and the assembly can be tilted and rolled to easily move it around. I simply roll it under an eve when not in use, and roll it out when needed. The assembly comes apart easily, making it portable for longer distance movement, including camping trips. The wheel might be considered a bit redneck by some, and a solid, circular base is available. To me, the wheel saved a wad of cash, and hammer-finish painted, looks kinda cool. I also cut, creased, and welded a sheet metal cover/lid for it which not only shelters the grille, but helps hold smoke for added flavor.
Few items that you purchase will last as long as one of these grills! I do advise brushing the grate with oil (olive, canola, vegetable, etc.) when you first heat it up (and perhaps periodically thereafter) to keep it from rusting. I usually cook with charcoal and use mesquite wood for flavor, but have also used just wood with great results. Great, versatile product that will last a lifetime if minimally maintained.

The grill brought back great childhood memories. Spending the weekends in the summer at the park with my family. The food never tasted so good.
It's exciting to have the grandchildren over to start new traditions. Each time we light it up and start cooking the memory of the past combines with the memories we are making.
It is just as nice when we have our friends over and see their reaction as it takes them back in time. .

More than pleased
We wanted to find a "park grill" for an outdoor space we've cleared in the woods behind our house. We found this one online, ordered it, and received in just a couple of days. My husband got the post cemented in the ground one day and we used the grill the next. I cannot tell you how pleased we are with this purchase. It is the perfect addition to our outdoor area where we also have a swing, picnic table, and firepit. It's just like visiting one of the wonderful picnic parks in the mountains of NC, only it's right in our backyard. We love it and know we'll continue to enjoy using if for years to come because it is so durable and sturdy. And the price was much better than any of the other webisites we looked at.

Received grill very quickly. Easy installation (Just Follow simple directions) This grill is made for a lifetime of grilling. Thick metal and very well USA made. Worth the time and money. Looked at other park style grills and settled on this one. Buying this product you for sure will not go wrong. The grill grate height adjusts very easily. Has an adequate grate surface for grilling.

A grill above all grills & made in the USA !!!
WOW!!! Received my grill today, first to say it was fast shipping. Now to say the quality is superb. Looks like it will forever be with us. I purchased this grill for our needs. My husband was amazed at the quality. Hopefully we get to try it tomorrow. We will do the pvc pipe thing like another customer done, just in case we would decide to want to move it .

Park Grill - Just as I remembered them
This grill is everything I remembered it was, but my own and cleaner when I showed up to use it. I deviated from the installation instruction. I dug a hole and put a PVC pipe in the ground for the grill's pole to insert in to. After all, I want to move it one day or if we ever find ourselves moving. I never put the wire in to keep it held in place.
I love this grill. I even smoke hickory wedges into it when I do cook my venison and burgers and hot dogs. It's a treat with the kids when i get them to do yard work. I highly recommend this grill! My wife purchased it and I absolutely loved it upon opening an still do.

Greatest Grill Ever !!!
I had wanted one of these grills for several years and finally decided to go ahead and get one and it was one of the best outdoor cooking decisions I have ever made. These grills are built like a tank and cook like a dream. I could not get over how solidly this grill was built, there was not one single flaw in mine. Cooking on this grill is a pure joy, I cook on it all the time, the heat is very easy to regulate and with the swivel feature it makes it great to be able to turn to keep out of the wind. Buy one, you will enjoy it.

Got it on a Thursday. Dug the hole and cemented the post in that afternoon. Friday afternoon put the grill on the post and fired it up. Seasoned the grate with some cooking oil and got the perfect sear on my steak. This grill is well made and will last a long time. I had forgot how much better tasting a steak could be over charcoal...
