The Original PK's Construction Eliminates Hot Spots

Unlike other grills, the Original PK's cook chamber is constructed entirely from aluminum. Aluminum conducts heat 4x more efficiently than steel, which means heat is dispersed evenly throughout the capsule. Say goodbye to expensive mistakes and hello to evenly cooked meats and veggies.

The Original PK's Construction Is Rust-Proof

Your PK will be with you through decades of sunshine, rain, sleet, snow, humidity, disco music, you name it. PK grills produced before the moon landing are still cooking strong to this day, so buying a rust-proof aluminum PK saves you dollars in the long run.

Our industry-leading 20 year warranty.

A Smart Capsule Design & Vent System

The Original PK is shaped like a bullet aimed at your taste buds and features 4 easy-to-use vents, allowing you to set up zones and precisely control airflow inside the capsule.

Why Is This Grill Better Than Gas, Pellet, Kamado And Other Charcoal Grills?

  • Gas Grills: Gas grills are convenient to turn on and off, but here's the problem: you can’t get flavor from a gas flame. The smoky flavor that burning wood or charcoal imparts to grilled foods IS the point of outdoor cooking. Additionally, many gas grills are manufactured out of sheet metal components and break or rust over time. $500 to $1000 to replace a rusted or broken gas grill every few years adds up over time.
  • Pellet Grills: Pellet grills can produce flavor better than gas grills. The problem? Pellet grills require power and use mechanical augers which are prone to jamming and breakage. Now you're limited to using your grill where there is electricity. Forget about cooking at the beach or tailgate without a generator.
  • Kamodo Grills: Ceramic egg-type grills have become very popular and they cook well. Unfortunately, kamado grills are made of porcelain, making them extremely heavy, fragile and not very portable. And once a Kamado gets hot, it stays hot for a long time which makes it hard to modulate the temperature. A PK Grill can efficiently increase or decrease temps with the smart use of venting and fuel.
  • Other Charcoal Grills: So, if charcoal grills are #1 when it comes to flavor, what's wrong with other charcoal grills? Unlike the PK360, typical charcoal grills have only 2 vents (one exhaust vent on top and another vent below). This greatly inhibits how much control you have over air and heat flow. Many of these grills are cheaply constructed and prone to rusting. Replacing a rusted or broken grill every few years adds up over time. Sorry, there is a little math involved with good grilling.

What Separates This Grill From Other PK Grills?

Now that you know what makes the Original PK better than other types of grills, what separates it from our other grills?

The Original PK is the wise grandmother of our PK Grill line. An old school cooker with all the stories that cooks like crazy and just won't stop.

  • The Original employs sliding vents and a squatty cart that some people don't like, but she's too old to care what other people think.
  • The Original PK is shorter than our other grills, about the same height as a comparable kettle grill.
  • She had 310 sq in. of cooking space so you can cook plenty of food for a regular-sized family with no problem.
  • The Original PK is not quite as voluminous as the PK360 (4080 cubic in. vs 5374 cubic in.), but she says it suits her just fine.
  • The Original PK combines a classic look with old school touches, which means there is nothing new-fangled or fancy about an Original PK Grill. It just does what it is supposed to do. It cooks great and lasts a long time.

It's no wonder it's one of the most beloved outdoor cookers ever to come down the pike.

    Forever Grill

    Posted by L. Sharbono on 15th Nov 2018

    I bought my PK Original in the late 60's and still use it regularly today - after 45 - 50 years. Burned a lot of charcoal and smoking wood. This dude never burns out. Mine is as good and solid today as when I bought it, but it does have a good layer of smoke coating on the inside. I've replaced the grate maybe three times (made my own with expanded steel) and recently bought a replacement stainless grid from the factory. No original tray underneath so I made my own so it can hold smoking wood or an ash pan. I added a thermometer a few years ago. I think mine cost me +/- $65. - wow, how times have changed. In my and the PK's lifetime I could have spent several hundred dollars buying, burning out, and replacing other model grills.

    This is a fantastic grill

    Posted by terry on 5th Jul 2018

    I have searched a long time for a grill to replace my Old Smokey (too small) and combo propane/charcoal grills. The PK Griller is a great grill. I've had it for a month, used it several weekends and have monitored how it cooks, temps, vent openings, etc. Using a charcoal chimney starter, this grill maintains heat for a long period of time, I'm extremely satisfied. Searing on direct heat and grilling on low heat, this grill can be easily used to cook quick meals and those requiring longer cook times. Highly recommended

    The best all around grill you never knew you needed!

    Posted by Drp1 on 12th Jun 2018

    Great grill and smoker!! This is my first real grill and smoker, I ordered this after doing some research and I couldn't be happier. I used a cheap garage smoker before this. So far it has been great for grilling pretty much anything and smoking food on a shorter time frame. I reversed sear the best steaks I've ever made on my new pk. Longer smoking has been challenging with the amount of heat that can be lost opening the top. As well as maintaining a consistent temp for a long. Maybe just a little bit of a learning curve. Look forward to all the grilling and smoking with my pk.

    Inherited father's PK

    Posted by Bill Holt on 25th Jul 2017

    My Dad bought his PK grill in the 60s and I got it after he was done with it, and still have it today... The bottom has started some pitting holes after 50 years, but it still works.

    Cannot be beat

    Posted by KEN Mays on 21st Jul 2017

    I have had my OK grill since 1963. They do not burn out. Nothing like a roast cooked in the PK with misquote coals These grills are the best.
