Equipped with a new lightweight, low-to-the-ground stand, the classic PK
Grill and Smoker is now tailgate-ready
ITS PORTABLE, OF COURSE.
The PKGO is great for camping, tailgating, beach days, picnics
The PKGOs small footprint makes it a great choice for use on any
LIGHTWEIGHT and RUSTPROOF.
The PKGOs portable frame is made of lightweight aluminum tubes and
stainless steel hardware.
The rectangular stand holds the PK body about four inches off the
groundjust enough to leave the air vents exposed, enabling you to cook
on the dirt, a flat rock, or a truck tailgate. I used it to cook chicken
and veggies in my backyard and found that the simple design with big
bars to grip on each side made the 44-pound grill relatively easy to
carry. While the stand itself is light, four rubber feet lend it a
sturdy feel. Theres no built-in tray to catch ash and embers that fall
through the bottom air vents, so I put a baking sheet on the patio under
the grilla minor nuisance.
The grill itself, about the size of a large microwave, is by no means
small, but it produced some of the best barbecue chicken Ive had in a
while: crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, and flavorful
throughout. Once the coals are going, the PKGO requires little
babysitting, thanks to the four-point venting system, which makes it
easy to achieve and maintain different temperatures on each half of the
grill. In practice, this meant my chicken cooked in a quick 30 minutes
while my veggies came out with just the perfect amount of char.
Luxury portable grills like this one certainly arent about to take the
place of my regular camping stove, but the lower price and smaller size
make them a welcome option for beginners or space-limited grillers who
want the benefit of top-end cooking tools without devoting big bucks and
precious yard real estate to a full-size model.
