Kettleman 560x280 The weather is turning warmer, baseball is back, and we can already smell it in the air. It’s the time we look forward to as men, grilling season is finally here. From April till October, here at Gunaxin we cook roughly half our meals on the grill. Regardless if it oinks, clucks, or moos, it’s likely to get some grill marks if it wanders near our office. While we often turn to gas for ease of use, our true love is the forgotten art of cooking with charcoal. So we couldn’t be more excited to tell you about the latest in charcoal grilling goodness by Char-Broil designed to make grilling easier.

More than 65 years ago, Char-Broil brought the first charcoal grill to market. In the years since, the company has introduced a series of innovations that are now standard among modern grills, always striving to make cookouts more enjoyable for the millions of people who barbecue each week. The latest breakthrough is Char-Broil’s new Kettleman 22.5” Charcoal Grill (MSRP $129), an updated and vastly improved kettle-style grill that is more efficient and easier to use.

The charcoal kettle is a proven design, so how could Char-Broil improve upon a classic and make grilling with charcoal easier? Behold, the Char-Broil Kettleman Grill: Char Broil Kettleman 560x366

Precisely engineered to give backyard chefs ultimate control, the Kettleman will do more with less charcoal. A no-fall-through porcelain cooking grate keeps flare-ups away and distributes heat evenly. A super-sized cool-touch damper on the lid and air vents around the sides of the kettle give maximum heat control. The Kettleman also has a hinged, latching lid that never has to touch the ground during the grilling experience and makes moving the grill a breeze.

While we grill daily on the back deck, one of the benefits to charcoal grilling is portability. Just latch that lid and load the relatively light-weight Char-Broil Kettleman into the back of your truck and you can easily take it with you for tailgating, camping, or to a cookout. Check out this quick video demonstrating the Kettleman’s other key features:

We’re not going to lie, the Kettleman makes the charcoal grill we’ve been using previously feel like antiquated technology. Each one of the features demonstrated in that video directly improves upon a problem we’ve encountered with our old grill. Don’t take our word for it though, you can check it out for yourself at Lowe’s or learn more about the Kettleman grill online at We’re hoping that this grill will be the innovation that brings that familiar charcoal grilling smell back to the neighborhood. We sure love that smell.
