The Dyna Glo charcoal grill is made from steel and cast iron, powder coated black, with polished steel detailing. The three cast iron grates are porcelain enameled, providing a total of 816 square inches of cooking surface. The stainless steel smoke stack has and adjustable cap. The charcoal tray height is adjusted with a large hand-crank on the front of the grill. Also on the front is an access door to allow the adding of more fuel if required. The unit comes with an ash tray, temperature gauge and side-tables for convenience. The Dyna-Glo charcoal grill sits on a solid base, with two large wheels and two lockable casters, and a small wire tray. When assembled, this model is around 28” x 50” x 60”.
As you probably guessed, this Dyna Glo charcoal BBQ grill is big. There’s a main cooking area of 576 square inches, and another 240 square inches on the raised area. Enough to grill 30 burgers at the same time, if you were wondering. Of course there’s a fair amount of assembly to do when it arrives, as you would expect, but it’s not too bad to put together. It took a couple of hours, so not too onerous.
And the Dyna Glo charcoal barbecue grill certainly looks the part when it’s all put together, with it’s side tables and that steel smoke stack on the top. And there’s a useful door on the front that looks like an oven, but is actually for adding more charcoal, and yes you’ll need to add more charcoal, this thing goes through it like a steam train.
The heat is controlled by moving the charcoal tray up and down with an impressive looking crank handle on the front. And there’s a bottle opener on there so you don’t have to step away from the grill. Otherwise, apart from the size and the charcoal bill, this is like any other grill, and I mean that in a positive way. Don’t let the size put you off, thinking you need to treat it differently, because that’s not the case.
Afterwards, this outdoor charcoal grill, is easy enough to clean, just pull out the ash pan as you would any other BBQ. Sure it takes more cleaning, but it is huge.
On the down side, because there’s always one of those, I have concerns over the quality. These days everything seems to be made cheaper and cheaper, and this is no exception. It’s not heavy duty thick cast iron, except the door and the grates, and you can tell when assembling it accuracy of manufacture wasn’t exactly a strong point. It’s not durable enough to be used professionally, but if you have a large family or a lot of friends, and you use it occasionally, then it’s fine.
