My PK is the original opens from the side type. It has been wonderful for 50+ years but I will have to retire it. Vent’s are gone, wheels can’t be replaced nor coal grate or cook grate.

I’d never heard of PK Grills until about a month ago when I received an offer from KCBS to purchase one. After a little research, I chose to make this investment. I have not been disappointed. This whole setup is solid, figuratively and literally. Two slabs of spare ribs (at once) and a 9-lb turkey breast were smoked to perfection recently. The cast aluminum of the cooking unit is great at maintaining heat and ensuring quick temp recovery after refueling. Cylindrical bottom vents are ingenious and allow for quick and precise air adjustment. Charcoal consumption is minimal due in part to airtight fitting of lid to main body. Grates for both charcoal and cooking are substantial and stainless steel. I’ve not found anything not to like about this grill/smoker. With reasonable care, it may be the last cooker you’ll ever need!

The build quality of this grill far exceeded my expectations! I see why people are still using 40 year old grills.

This is probably the best grill I've had. The design is clean and simple and the build is of high quality. I am still learning how to use it for best grilling results; there are many factors influencing the result: where the meat is placed, where the coals are placed, which valves are open/closed, whether you use a cedar planck for fish etc.
It has high thermal inertia, so it stays hot a long time after the valves have been shut and the embers go out - I use it to keep food warm, without cooking it further.
You can keep the temperature steady with precision by partially closing some valves. It is best for slow cooking (at low temperature) in my opinion.

First of all the packaging was more than heavy duty. The 360 arrives in 2 boxes, the bigger 1 held the capsule, stainless grills and the upright for the base. The smaller held the base itself , shelves, handles and hardware.
But wait, the base and shelves were in separate boxes so in fact the 360 ships in 4 boxes. Almost over kill for something that's made from cast aluminium. The assembly was easy and the assembly manual was written by somebody who had English as their first language, you know what I mean. Once assembled the 360 is a piece of modern art that perfectly showcases what modern manufacturing can achieve when married to a lot of fore thought. For example the H shaped base isn't perfectly symmetrical with the back 2 tines longer than the front 2 so the 360 is still rock solid with the heavy lid open.
In the 4 days I've had it I've slow cooked duck thighs, seared steaks and salmon fillets and all have turned out as perfect as the skill of the cook could allow.
Lastly, several of the reviews on Amazon bemoan the high cost of the 360 and at $799, when not on sale, it is a hefty price. But I'm writing this review from Australia and the 360 cost me, figuring in shipping it 9000 miles and the exchange rate, $1844. Plus I've since spent another, roughly, $600 buying a couple of options for it. And that was after Cindy, thanks Cindy, at PK gave me a $100 discount on shipping because they're having a ' free shipping in America' sale. And I still feel like I got value for money.
So to close, if you like to cook with charcoal and you're looking for a bbq that will last you for the rest of your life look no further, run don't walk to the PK web site and buy yourself a 360. You will not regret it.

We have either a first year or close to it grill. Purchased by my late father in law who passed in 1968. It is still in great shape. Had to purchase new grill grates over the years. No rust. Original stand but replaced the wheels about 10 years ago. Just purchased my son one for a wedding present. Should still be grilling on his 50th Anniversary. Thanks PK.

I received my grill this morning (Saturday Oct. 28. Wow what a surprise. Incredibley heavy duty. Assembly was mostly easy. The instructions should mention to completly loosen the bolts that attach the pedistal to the base. Otherwise it is very hard to get the pedistal completly inserted. The only other problem we had was attaching the side handels. They have PK molded into them, but that goes facing down. Seems counterintuitive. Nevertheless, we got it assembled, and it looks fantastic. Tried it out tonight to bake two potatoes and two rib eye steaks. Everything turned out great. I need to practice with heat control, plan on making ribs later this week. Very happy with this purchase.

What a great grill! Not only is the PK360 beautiful on my deck, it's easy to grill on and clean up is easy....win, win. My steaks and brisket taste sooo good! You can't beat the charcoal taste! I've thrown away my last gas grill!

The PK360 is a beautifully designed charcoal grill that features a 4 point venting system that tailors to you, The Cook. Grilling has never been easier and the finished product more delicious! My family requests I grill every night! Just as great is the convenient portability and easy cleanup, which makes purchasing this grill a no-brainer!

This grill has become my new backyard smoker and grill. It's the perfect size for smoking meat for a small group. It holds heat as well as my green egg and is more attractive. Clean up is a breeze as well. I would recommend this grill to anyone!

I was a bit torn between the original PK and the latest PK360. I also wanted the ability to hold heat for a long time, so the Kamado grills were in the running. The other was portability and weight, the Kamado grills are very heavy and would be primarily stationary. Ultimately, I went with the PK360 w/ Ironwood shelves, it's not very heavy but can withstand greater punishments than ceramic grills - Kamados. I really enjoyed putting this thing together, it was simple (not like 50+ parts to assemble like some Kamados), The outer body is made out of very well constructed cast aluminum as well as the handle! I was impressed with the quality as it is high quality. Yes, I would have liked everything to be made in the USA, however I believe some components are outside of the molded cast aluminum. The grates are 316L stainless steel (marine grade) so they will last very long and highly anti-corrosive. My watch is made out of the same material and salt from sea water will not rust it. The Ironwood shelves are very stable and I like the ability to easily remove when not in use. I also purchased the Pro cover, a bit on the expensive side but it is very high quality. The pedestal keeps the main capsule secure and stable. The one complaint I would say are the wheels. They look very cool, however when moving over uneven pavement they are not very effective - the bumps are pronuced and rattles the internal grates. If you move the grill a lot, it's better to try and remove the capsule from the pedestal and carry it instead. Outside of that, the grill is amazing! I will be honest, I have been on vacation and still drying up from the sea. I will be grilling on the PK360 soon to see how long I can smoke some pork shoulders! I cannot wait. The product has exceeded my expectations from the construction. The team at PK are responsive and have been a pleasure to work with. Now I will need to fire it up and enjoy!

The thing I love most about this grill is it reminds me of growing up with my dad always on the grill. It is way more durable and its ease of use is outstanding but the design just takes me back to those days when as a child watching my dad cook was better than watching TV.

I really thought about buying this grill especially because of the comparably high price tag to it. However, after receiving the grill, I can only say that the quality of construction is outstanding, the unit is well thought out and nicely engineered in every aspect. Packaging was very good, everything fits together nicely, is easy to assemble and the whole unit is very sturdy. I had no problems firing up the grill right away for two zone smoking a Boston Butt and holding the temperature at 225 F for about 5 hrs. before adding a few more char coals. The cooking space is more than sufficient for me, the table surface is great and this thing really looks just great in addition. The wheels however could be a bit larger, which would make it easier to move the grill on a less even surface but that is no problem for me and I still give it a 100%, 5 star rating. I would definitely buy this grill again. Thanks PK for this really great Grill!

I cut my charcoal grilling teeth on an original PK about 4 years ago. Prior to that I was solely utilizing a Gas Grill with no love for grilling and less than desirable results - I just didn't know it at the time. Experiment after experiment on the PK lead to an evening ritual that was almost spiritual in nature. Get Home + Cold Drink + Light Coals + Experiment = Decompress/Impress. When I learned of a larger grill, I was ecstatic, my only qualm with the original was depth. I always had to get creative to cook an upright chicken or more than a couple rib racks. The features of the 360 are all such noticeable upgrades, I love the extra surface area/depth plus the luxuries such as the ash system and table surface area. From upright chicken, large turkey's, ham's, pork shoulders, big brisket flats and all your grilling regulars, the 360 provides ample space and elite temp control. It was somewhat tough to purchase another charcoal grill, but I wouldn't give it back for the world, it's much easier to justify knowing that both of my PK's will be around as long as I will. Thanks for making Bad Ass Grills.

As a long time PK Classic user and new PK360 owner, I am happy to report that this grill rocks. I love the fact the PK brought this baby up to standard working height and added those enormous wing shelves. The capsule is straight up PK. Thick aluminum. The PK360 cooks smooth and looks great. I love making my neighbors jealous and try to do so several nights a week.

We've owned a number of grills and smokers over the years - I love my Weber Smokey Mountain but this is just another level of quality with excellent cooking results. I was looking for something I could grill on, slow smoke on, was portable and that looked good on my deck. It took a few runs to get use to it (I'm preferring lump vs. charcoal) but now it's second nature. The cooking zones are fantastic and the portability is great - we took it to a cabin with us this weekend. This grill takes the cake - I love it so much it feels like it's part of the family :-) You will not be sorry you made the purchase.
