First introduced in the 1950s as the Portable Kitchen, the charcoal grill quickly spread across the south until production halted in the 1970s. Over 20 years later, it was rediscovered in perfect condition at a yard sale by attorney Paul James and he started recreating the PK Classic Grill straight from the original. The cast aluminum creates a durable, rust-proof shell that has proven to last, while also conducting heat and holding temperatures better than its steel contenders. A set of four vents open and close for fast sears on steaks and burgers or lower temps for smoking. Every cast is poured by hand in the US.
