About Broil King
The company behind Broil King was founded at the turn of the 20th Century, in Ontario, Canada. Throughout the 20th Century, the Onward Manufacturing Company designed and distributed home appliances, including cookers and freezers. In 1989, the brand started manufacturing gas barbecues using jacuzzi technology that they had acquired years earlier. In 2010, Onward Manufacturing Company bought the rights to the Big Steel Keg line of kamado grills, which they have since rebranded to Broil King Keg barbecues. These Keg barbecues offer a number of features that make them extremely popular not only in Canada, but across the world, including here in the UK.
Kamado style grills are popular because they allow for convection heating, as well as direct cooking. The heat flows around the design, providing full and uniform heat coverage for the food inside, and by choosing the right cooking surface, or grill, you can create a huge range of different food types and dishes. In order to help control the heat inside the keg, and to ensure that you are safely barbecuing the food inside, there is a lid thermometer. This enables you to maintain the exact temperature on which you want to cook.
The design of the keg barbecue also means that it is possible to control the temperature of the grill by adding or removing air to the bowl. This is achieved using the camper control on top of Broil King keg barbecues. Open the damper to allow more air to flow, or close it to restrict airflow and minimise flames. The multi-tool damper control allows you to control the temperature of the cooking area.
Heavy Duty Materials
Throughout the design of the keg barbecue, you will find high quality materials that are chosen for their strength and durability. The cast iron grills are reassuringly strong, and the cast iron maintains the level of heat that you want. Handles are made from heavy duty resin, so they will withstand the operating temperature of the grill without becoming damaged or broken. The barbecue itself is made using a dual wall steel construction, which not only helps keep heat in but also means that your new grill is virtually impossible to damage.
The Keg Shape
The keg, or kamado, style of the barbecue is designed for efficient convection style heating. Once the coal has reached the desired temperature, and you maintain this temperature using the airflow damper control, good will cook evenly and uniformly once inside the barbecue. Flare-ups are minimised, and no matter where you place your food, they will cook thoroughly and evenly.
There is a host of intelligent features included in the Broil King keg barbecue. The lid has a latch and lock mechanism. This is used to create a tight seal around the opening of the barbecue, while the powder coated finish looks good and makes it easy to operate the barbecue even when it is at peak temperature. The barbecue also has a robust stand, which will easily take the full weight of the barbecue, and there is a shelf under the cooking surface that can be used to hold charcoal, tools, and other items.
Broil King 2000 Keg Barbecue
There are two main models of keg barbecue from Broil King. The Keg 2000 has 280 square inches of cooking surface and a surprisingly small footprint. It can be used to barbecue traditional dishes like burgers and steaks, as well as ribs and other cuts of meat, and it can also be used to slow cook pieces of pork or beef, thanks to its convection design and the control that is offered through the airflow control features.
The Broil King 5000 Barbecue
The heavy duty Broil King 5000 keg barbecue offers even more cooking space; 480 square inches of it, in fact, which is enough to comfortably prepare food for a whole family. It also has a steel base and charcoal finish, looks great, and it is the most versatile kamado style barbecue that Broil King offers.
As well as damper controls on top of the unit, like those on the 2000 keg barbecue, you will also find additional air control around the cooking area, providing even more control over the temperature that you cook at. It even comes with a hitch adapter that lets you attach it to the back of a vehicle using a trailer hitch. What's more, it has a secondary cooking rack, giving you extra space on which to cook your favourite grilled food. This is the most powerful Broil King keg barbecue, and one of the most versatile keg barbecues from any company. Other Accessories
