Our STOK drumgrill is a welcome addition to our new home!
We stumbled upon this orange beauty on a recent trip to our favorite box store. A quick google search proved their price (with 5% off and Redcard member discount) was not to be beat. We eagerly purchased it.
We so infrequently grilled out in the past, that we were a little apprehensive about the functionality of the STOK and the ease of preparing our meals. But our new grill outperformed all our worries.
Assembly – under ½ hour with the need for a screwdriver.
Initial heating – discovered that we needed a few applications of lighter fluid to really bring our grill up to temp rather than simply lighting paper as the instructions recommended.
Performance – We had a nice distribution heat on the main surface with no hot spots. But we highly recommend the purchase of a heat glove to handle the various accessories and lid.
Clean up – It was a breeze. The entire grill was cooled down in less than 3 hours.
Tip: Briquettes are a fire hazard. Be sure to properly handle their final disposal.
We enjoyed our STOK grill meal so much that we are already planning future meals and an entire season of enjoyment.
We did establish safety rules for our kids. Our grill is set up on a small concrete patio and our TRFamily rule is that when we are grilling, you are NOT allowed on the entire concrete area without asking permission of an adult first. Be sure to discuss safety and grilling with your family, too.
Enjoy the summer!
