8 Sizzling Reasons the Gather Grill is the best charcoal grill

There are many charcoal grills on the market, but there’s nothing quite like the Gather Grill. The Gather Grill is the best charcoal grill for gourmet BBQing, for hosting all your friends and family, for making great memories and delicious food — it’s the best charcoal grill for just about anything!

Keep reading to learn more about why the Gather Grill is the best charcoal grill on the planet.

1) You can cook for large groups

For the past couple of years, being separated from loved ones has truly taught us the value of being together. As a result, we can no longer take gatherings for granted. The spirit behind the Gather Grill is a desire to renew our relationships and bring friends and family back together through the tradition of food and fire.

Therefore, the Gather Grill was designed to be the best charcoal grill for cooking for large groups.

Our smallest grill, the 28” tailgater, can comfortably sit up to 7 people for an epic get-together and cook up to 25 hamburgers, 14 ribeye steaks, 2 Boston butt roasts or racks of ribs, or 1 large brisket at a time. This means that our smallest charcoal grill can compete with the largest Big Green Eggs and Webers.

The Pioneer can comfortably fit 8, the Entertainer can fit 9, and our largest grill, the Reunion, is can comfortably fit 10 guests. The Reunion also has the largest cooking surface area of most grills available — with the ability to cook up to 70 hamburgers, 38 ribeye steaks, 12 Boston but roasts or racks of ribs, or 6 briskets at once. 

No family reunion, tailgate, or neighborhood cookout is too large for the Gather Grill! So go ahead, invite everyone over for dinner! You never have to worry about not being able to cook enough food!

2) You can cook incredible-tasting food

Not only can the Gather Grill cook for large groups, but it can also cook high-quality, delicious food to “wow” your guests. Because why would you want to cook anything less for your epic get-together?

Take your next cookout to the next level by cooking high-quality, epic recipes on your grill and give your guests something to remember. The Gather Grill is easy to clean, and when taken care of properly, it will burn cleanly and not overwhelm your food with dirty grill flavor. Play around with new recipes and secret ingredients, and maybe even infuse your food with the flavors of high-quality woodsmoke instead of charcoal.

3) It’s a Dynamic and Flexible charcoal grill, griddle, smoker, firepit, and table

The Gather Grill is the most flexible charcoal grill on the market. With just a few simple accessories, you can use the Gather Grill to grill, griddle, smoke, bake, warm, and more. You can cook almost anything you can dream of on the Gather Grill — from bacon and eggs to pizza and pie. 

And no tricky set-up or conversion is required! Simply swap in the interchangeable griddle insert, bar grate, double-decker warming tray, or smoking/baking hood. Each of these accessories only takes up half of the grill, so you can mix and match to cook multiple things at one time. 

And the best part is that every Fully Loaded Gather Grill already comes with most of these accessories, so you don’t need to purchase them separately unless you’d like more than one. Only the Entertainer and the Reunion come with the warming tray.

4) Lets you be the center of the party

Other charcoal or propane grills need to be stored and used off in a corner somewhere, away from the action of the party. These grills can be hard or awkward to gather around, so guests usually don’t stick around while you’re cooking.

But with the Gather Grill, you never have to grill alone. The grill is designed to be the center of the party, encouraging people to gather around the fire and even help you cook — enhancing the experience and creating a sort of hibachi-style entertainment in your own backyard. The Lazy Susan feature even makes it easy for people to serve themselves food when it’s ready!

Keep the Gathering Going

The comfortable, circular design of the Gather Grill helps create connection and community. It encourages social interaction and great storytelling from your guests. This makes it easy for you to stay involved as a host while you cook and create epic, long-lasting memories for your guests.

5) It’s an easy to clean charcoal grill

Sure, cooking and entertaining is great — but what about the dreaded clean-up? The Gather Grill is actually one of the easiest charcoal grills to clean.

The Gather Grill cooking surfaces are made of 304 stainless steel so they won’t rust and are super easy to clean while the grill is still warm. Our favorite way to clean the griddle is with lemon juice because it helps break down the grease. Squeeze the lemon juice and pour the water directly onto the griddle. Get a metal spatula or scraper tool to push everything over to the hole in the corner of the griddle. Repeat this step one or two times if necessary.

In addition to cleaning the cooking surfaces, it is also important to clean the ash out of your Gather Grill. For this step, let your grill cool first. Once the grill is cool, simply use a metal trowel or shovel to scoop the ash into a bucket. You don’t have to clean the ash every time you cook. The bowl of the grill is large enough that you can easily cook 3—6 times before you need to clean out the ash. 

And that’s it! That’s how easy it is to clean your Gather Grill after cooking.

6) You can keep food hot for longer

The Gather Grill is designed to have superior heat retention and keep food hot for longer. All the cooking surfaces are built with top-quality 304 stainless steel, one of the best materials for retaining heat and keeping food cooking — so you don’t have to worry so much about meticulously maintaining your fire temperature. 

And of course, the Reunion and Entertainer feature warming racks that provide extra space for keeping food warm and ready.

This makes the Gather Grill super easy to use and enhances the flavor of your food by guaranteeing that everything stays hot and cooking.

7) Enjoy superior temperature control

In addition to great heat retention, the Gather Grill also provides superior temperature control.
The Lazy Susan feature allows for quick and painless temperature control. Keep the fire to one side of the firepit and then simply rotate the cooking surface over the hottest or coolest part of the grill to change the temperature.

The baking/smoking hood also has a built-in temperature gauge, so you can rest assured that your food is always cooking at the right temperature. There is an adjustable heat vent on both the smoking hood and under the firepit.

8) It is made of gorgeous, high-quality materials

The Gather Grill is designed for functionality, but it is also designed to be a gorgeous, statement piece on any patio or in the backyard.

The Gather Grill wood table is made from Ipe Brazilian hardwood, which is a strong and gorgeous wood. Ipe’s strength has been compared to steel and is highly durable, known to last for more than 25 years outdoors. It is mold, fire, weather, rot, scratch, and pest resistant.

Ipe is warm and rich in color, similar to other beautiful woods like mahogany. You simply cannot find another charcoal grill that’s as beautiful as that! When you add the Lazy Susan Ipe Table Top, then you have a beautiful table you can use year-round, even when there isn’t a fire going.

About us

When Jed Strange bought a fire pit in February of 2020, he had no idea that it was about to inspire him to create one of the most innovative multi-function outdoor cooking devices available today.

With the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown closing operations at Strange Farms, a family-run corporate and private retreat venue, Jed found himself with some extra time on his hands. He sat down and looked at his new fire pit. His goal of gathering people around it physically was put on hold, but the desire for connection remained.
