Brinkmann Dual Function Grill

Hi….I wanted to make sure to tell you upfront that  I have received no product or compensation to promote this grill. I wrote this post because I love the grill!  Thanks for visiting.  

Summertime I love to cook outside. So does my hubby. For the past few years every Spring we check out the gas and charcoal grills.  I love the convenience of gas - my hubby loves charcoal and also to smoke food.   

We have always had a gas grill and a separate smoker.  The smoker we keep at the RV because we do a lot of entertaining there - both locations have gas grills. The grill at the RV is on it's last leg.  It is a Coleman large outdoor grill that is 10 years old. The kids bought it for us for Christmas 10 years ago. A great grill but she is getting past her prime.


So this year we knew we needed to buy a new grill for the RV. While shopping for a new grill...we decided to buy a new grill for home. We are going to take the old home grill to the RV and give Dawn the old RV grill. Dawn's hubby loves to fix stuff - so the RV grill will be a good project for him. 


Check out our grill .... one side gas for me and one side charcoal and smoker for him.  Perfect for us - It is a Brinkmann Dual Function grill - we bought it from Home Depot.  Hubby and Jason decided to they would put it together. They both agree it was not a nightmare to put it together. They had no extra parts and they were still speaking to each other when they were finished.  Both good signs to a happy put-together!

One side of the grill is gas and the other side is charcoal. There is also a outside burner - which I love for making corn on the cob. The gas section has a good size grid with a warmer shelf. The charcoal side also has a smokers box. 
Easy to use for me and just what hubby wants to make smoked meats and charcoal cooking. After years of marriage we have learned to not only give in once in a while but also how to be creative in our purchases. Buying something that meets both our expectations is our goal in all purchases. The Brinkmann grill did just that!
Next week we are taking the old grill to the RV. Until then the deck is perfect for some serious cooking.

  12. I have a question.. WE just got an RV and maybe yours is much bigger.. How do you fit your grill in the RV or do you stick it in the bed of the truck and isn't it heavy? We have a cheap grill for our RV.. like cheap.. We def want to invest in a smoker.

  32. The Brinkmann Dual Function Grill sounds like the perfect grill for my hubby. He has a separate gas grill and a smoker so this would consolidate into one plus add the charcoal element. He'd love it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I prefer charcoal myself. I am hoping to get my husband a nice grill for Father's day this year. Not sure if I am going to be able to swing it but I am trying. :)

  34. That grill certainly will stop arguments in your house! It probably would stop arguments in most homes! I live in an apartment so I can't use one but I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is the type I would pick if I did.
