The PK is a world-class grill and smoker. There is no need to choose between these two important functions or purchase separate equipment. Whether you intend to grill at high temperatures for short periods, like burgers and hot dogs, or at low temperatures over longer periods, like pork shoulder and beef brisket, the cast aluminum PK will make you a backyard hero because it nails the landing on both. The nickel-plated steel hinged grid makes refueling for long smokes easy without having to remove the cooking surface or move the food. Get the best of both worlds with a new PK.
Aluminum conducts heat more efficiently than other common grill materials which provides for a smooth distribution of heat around the PK capsule resulting in very even cooking without the need to constantly turn or reposition the food on the grill.
In addition to being a very effective way to direct the flow of flavorful smoke over your food, the PK 4-way venting system (two adjustable vents in the top lid and two dampers under the fire) provides easy and accurate temperature control for every style of cooking without flare-ups from dripping fat.
With the lid closed and the vents open, not enough oxygen can enter the cooker to support a flame. So, whether you are cooking fast with high heat or slow with low heat, close the lid and the PK’s venting system naturally suppresses scorching flames to ensure your BBQ comes out brag-worthy time after time.
Because aluminum is inherently rustproof, this could be the last grill you ever buy. The PK is the smart choice for lake houses, camps, coastal applications and wet climates. The hinges won’t rust and bust because they are molded into the grill with a unique design that allows the top to lock on for cooking or lift off easily for cleaning. This near-legendary durability is why many 1950’s era PK’s are still turning out great BBQ today! If you don’t believe us, just have a look.
