Pros:Cooks well once you learn how to use them, and they are cheap.

Cons:They are cheap and don't last.

The Bottom Line: These are a cheap disposable grill that work pretty well once you get used to them.


I have gone through 3 of these in the past 12 years.
They work pretty good but are basically the *Bic Lighter* of grills as they are disposable.
I have yet to pay over $40 for one, if they go over that I doubt that I would buy one because I know they are only good for about 3-4 years tops and the last year is iffy.
They cook just fine especially once you get used to them.
I always drill air holes in the charcoal pan to get better airflow, I use a separate oven thermometer sitting on the grill to better gauge the temp accurately and adjust the lid (leave larger/smaller gaps) to keep the cooking temperature where I want it.  I line the pan with aluminum foil to cut down on clean up, and also any fruit juices that I have in fridge that go past their freshness date I always save to use to add to the water, this gives a nice flavor.
If you want a disposable grill that works decently for a couple of years then this grill is perfectly fine.

I have used them for at least 12 years and have cooked many a great meal on them.

(update) Feb 5th 2014.
I bought a really nice "Vision Grill" which is a ceramic Kamado grill about 2 years ago. The cost was $550 from Costco and it is the best grill I have ever used and will last me the rst of my life.

So I am done with disposible Brinkmans, these are great if you want something light to transport somewhere like grilling on the beach etc.
They cook well but if you get more than 3 years out of one you are doing good.
