SAMS club carries a little heavier version of that. I have looked at it a few times. The wife says that 9 grill is enough for now.

Kinda funny to log on and read this now............

I seen one this afternoon at Wally World and couldn't resist inspecting it a little...a "little" being the key word.

I open the lid and went hmmmmmmm... then thought cool way to adjust the coals..... then grabbed the cranky thing and gave it a few spins...again "few" being the key word...after about the 3rd twirl of the crank it froze up...popped and crunched a few times and wouldn't turn in either direction.

Although.............In the grills defense....it may have broke or bound up because of however or whoever assembled it at Wally World....but then on second thought...don't they just put the legs and stuff on items like that? Is that whole inside adjustable mechanism for the coals done at the factory?

Anyways...it did seem thin....maybe a good "one season" throw away cooker.....

just my $.02
