What makes the Gather Grill special?

The Gather Grill turns your entire evening into an experience. Cooking dinner becomes a shared endeavor, with people sitting around the table enjoying food as soon as it comes off the grill. The grill and griddle is actually a lazy Susan, so the grill can spin all the way around.

The Gather Grill is extremely versatile. Want to slow cook brisket or ribs? You can do that with the grill and the smoker hood. Want to make breakfast over the fire? Cook up those eggs, bacon, and pancakes on the griddle. Grilling steaks? Oh yeah. Baking a pie? Of course! And once the food is all done, you can remove the grill and griddle to create a wide-open fire pit.

Not only is each Gather Grill flexible, but they are also built with the highest quality standards. Constructed with 304 Stainless Steel, these grills are meant to last a lifetime. It’s the last firepit/grill/griddle/smoker you’ll ever need.

The Pioneer Gives You Room to Relax

The Pioneer fire bowl can accommodate any combination of two grill grates, griddles, or smoking hoods. When the table wings are installed and ready for guests, the full width is 68 inches and can comfortably sit 8 guests. The grill table sits 28”-34″ off the ground based on the adjustable leg heights. The Pioneer weighs 415 pounds, but can be moved short distances over solid surfaces by using the casters.

Fire Up the Pioneer for a Crowd

The Pioneer offers an impressive cooking capacity. You’ll get 961 square inches of wide open space for grilling and 480 square inches to roam for baking or smoking. The Pioneer won’t let you down; it can grill 40 hamburgers at once, 22 rib-eyes, 4 Boston or racks of ribs, or 2 briskets. 

If you love to grill and also want the capacity to get into some serious smoking, get your ribs, brisket, turkey, or pork shoulder ready for the Pioneer.

Looking for More?

Does the Pioneer sound great, but still not enough for your neighborhood party or big birthday events? Take a look at the 39” Entertainer or the 46” Reunion. Maybe the Pioneer is too much grill. You can always scale back to the 28″ Tailgater. Plus you can checkout some of our favorite upgrades:

Everyone gathers around food. it's human nature. but to be able to experience cooking together, eating together, and talking with each other all at the same time is awesome! Plus, so many of us love the outdoors, and the gather grills keep you nice and toasty even on the coolest evenings. I cannot say enough great things about my meals and time spend with friends around the Grills!

I have loved my experience with the Gather Grill. I've flipped pancakes, made pizza, cobbler, and many other things that highlight its versatility. But my favorite thing about it is the opportunity it creates for fellowship. When you can invite people to cook, eat, and relax around the same space, you get more than a grill, you get a centerpiece for hosting and entertaining. I've yet to be disappointed.

Great time around the grill. We cooked fresh tuna, burgers, corn on the cob, and for dessert, chocolate fondue! All on the gather grill. Fellowship, food, and fun times.
