Spring has officially sprung, which means we can officially look forward to flowers blooming, walking outside, and grilling (as soon as the weather actually warms up). Speaking of grilling, nothing beats the smokey flavor of anything charred on a charcoal grill. My mouth may or may not be watering at the thought of it. For those of who’ve been wanting to update our backyard barbecue, one of the best charcoal grills we’ve tested is on sale at Amazon right now.
The Char-Broil Kettleman usually goes for $97.99, but right now it’s priced at just $63.69, which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this grill. We loved this model because, unlike most charcoal grills, it comes with a hinged lid, meaning you don't have to constantly find a place to store the lid while you're checking your food.
It also uses a nifty TRU-Infrared grate, which has thin openings meant to prevent flare ups—no sear plates required—and inverted v-shaped ridges meant to help with even heat distribution. Even so, the Char-Broil Kettleman did take longer to heat up than some of the other grills we tested and didn't have the most even heating at lower temperatures.
But, all-in-all, the Char-Broil Kettleman is a relatively easy grill to use and will definitely amp up the flavor for your next barbecue gathering or solo grilling session. At such an incredible price, it’s a great charcoal grill for first-time grill owners and charcoal grill enthusiasts alike.
