Kool Grill Review

Portable grills are a mainstay among campers and tailgaters alike. And, while there are numerous portable charcoal and gas grills available, the makers of Kool Grill believe they have a product that stands out above the fray.

The typical portable charcoal grill has a lower basket to hold coals and a wire grill that resides above. And, while that is still the manner in which Kool Grill is configured, it is just a bit more complex.

Coals used by Kool Grill are housed in a chamber which prevents them from being spilled, even if the grill is knocked over. This chamber has a metal lid that is used to heat the grill. In theory, Kool Grill should use less charcoal than the standard portable grill.

Although the coals disperse heat along the stainless steel grill, the accumulation of the charcoal in the center could mean that there are hot spots, which may mean you’ll need to become accustomed to the best areas to place food while cooking.

Another nice feature of Kool Grill is how it handles fat and grease that drips while you grill. There is a reservoir that collects fat, so that it can be easily drained when you are finished cooking. This seems to be a more elegant solution that having it simply drip onto the coals and the bottom of the grill, as you’ll find with standard portable grills.

It should come as no surprise that all of these nice features come with a cost. Kool Grill costs about $120, which is on the high end of the portable grill range. With its compelling set of features, it could be worth the cost to those who grill often.


The idea of a portable grill is hardly new. A relatively inexpensive option is the $50 Weber Go-Anywhere Charcoal Grill, which holds very high consumer ratings.

Kool Grill is quite similar to the Gourmia Portable Charcoal Electric BBQ Grill, which costs about $100 and boasts a 4.6 star rating online. You may want to compare the two before making your final decision.
