We are pleased David Draper, from Field & Stream tested and reviewed a PK. We are even happier to report he gives a good review to the quality build and design our fans have loved over the last 60 years.
“I think the design, with its four dampers (two up, two down) and heavy lid that seals tight, makes it a better smoker than the Weber kettle. (As a dedicated Weber man, it was really tough for me to come to terms with this.)” – David Draper, Field & Stream

Field & Stream knows what it takes to survive the outdoors. They recommend quality build and durable materials to keep up with their outdoor-loving readers. (You’re likely familiar with them already.)
If you’re still not convinced, here are some thoughts David Draper shared in his review on Field & Stream.
- “My first thought upon assembling the PK Grill was, Why is it so short? From ground to grate, the grill measures just 28 inches. Then I put a tape to my Weber kettle and got the same measurement. I quickly realized that because the PK’s Grill box resembles those found on modern propane grills, which stand much higher, I was mentally comparing it to those. In truth, most charcoal grills are of a similar height to the PK.”
- “My second impressions was, Holy cow. This thing is well built. That grill box is thick cast aluminum, and I imagine, with some care, it will outlast the original owner.”
- “Plenty of space for a two-zone fire for grilling and smoking. In fact, I think the design, with its four dampers (two up, two down) and heavy lid that seals tight, makes it a better smoker than the Weber kettle. (As a dedicated Weber man, it was really tough for me to come to terms with this.)”
