Broil King Keg Charcoal Grill
The Bottom Line
Buy from Amazon
The Broil King Keg is so closely modeled on the size and shape of the Big Green Egg that grates and accessories are interchangeable, yet this metal version has some truly impressive innovative features and design. Capable of hitting very high temperatures while staying cool on the outside with great temperature control, this grill really is an amazing unit. You can even mount it onto your trailer hitch and take it tailgating, something you would have trouble doing with similar ceramic kamado cookers. While a great grilling grill there are some small problems with the design that might give you issues.
Excellent insulation holds in heat and keeps exterior cool
Efficient design means you need small amounts of charcoal
Less expensive alternative to ceramic kamado style cookers
Can be shut down to snuff out remaining charcoal
Cast iron coal and cooking grates can easily scratch enamel coating
Maintaining low smoking temperatures requires practice

- Made in China by Onward Manufacturing Company
Guide Review - Broil King Keg Charcoal Grill
This charcoal grill started out life as the Bubba Keg Charcoal Grill under licensing deal with the people who make those big, plastic and metal drinking cups. After a couple of years, that deal died and the name was changed to the Big Steel Keg. In 2010, Onward Manufacturing of Canada bought that company and changed the name of this grill to the Broil King Steel Keg and then Broil King Keg. During this time, there have been a few changes but by and large, this is the same grill it was when it first hit the market.
While the makers of the Broil King Keg call it a convection grill, what it really is, is a kamado cooker. Based on centuries old design, the ceramic Kamado is an incredibly efficient and versatile cooker that not only grills but works great as a smoker. The chief drawback of the ceramic versions (i.e. Big Green Egg) is that they are heavy and awkward to move. The Broil King Keg not only doesn't have this problem but comes standard with a trailer hitch mounting so you can take this grill on the road.
The basic construction of the Broil King Steel Keg is two layers of baked enamel steel with a layer of high temperature, oven grade insulation in between. This means that this grill can really hold in the heat. On the test version I was provided (an original Bubba Keg) with, I was able to hold a temperature of 250 degrees 2 hours after I had closed down the lid and snuffed out the fire. The efficiency of this unit means you need a very small amount of charcoal to fire the grill but will still be able to reach temperatures up to 800 degrees F. In fact if you are interested in low and slow barbecue cooking you will have to ration the charcoal even more and keep the vents nearly closed to hold a temperature around 225 degrees F.
Loaded with features from a pair of bottle openers to the numbered vents for easy control this grill is very well thought out and well designed. Broil King has made a number of modifications, eliminating the more obvious problems with this grill. The rivets and many of the metal parts have been replaced with stainless steel, greatly reducing the rusting issues that were evident with earlier versions.

My Favorite Discontinued Charcoal Grill, The Bubba Keg
Cooks like a ceramic Big Green Egg, but is built for portability? Where can I get one of these things? Bummer, you can’t, someone decided it wasn’t a good product but I beg to differ. As you could imagine, I have quite the collection of grills in my garage and on my patio. So many, that my wife has been known to give one away without me knowing. Case in point, my Weber Performer ended up living at my brother-in-law’s house for a few months before I knew it was gone. Although I love and miss that Performer, I would have some SERIOUS issues if my Bubba Keg were to disappear. I have grown to love this grill and cook on it on a weekly basis.
The Bubba Keg grill is made of double-walled steel. This thing is seriously heavy duty and very well insulated. I dare say it cooks just as well as the ceramic cookers I have cooked on in the past. As an added bonus, it is the same dimensions inside, so all of the Big Green Egg accessories fit it. I can get it up to 700 degrees to quickly grill the perfect steak and after sealing the bottom vent with silicone, I can cook a brisket for 13 hours on one load of charcoal. The difference is that those ceramics are not meant to be portable and you really have to be careful when moving them around. Not the Bubba. This thing is even built to fit in to the receiver of a trailer hitch, which is the second reason I love it so much. The Bubba Keg has been to a bunch of football games (well, the parking lot at least) in our time together. I finally have the security people trained to know that this is in fact a grill and not a large vessel for transporting beer. As for the toughness factor I mentioned earlier, the Bubba has survived a few falls from the trailer hitch during late night (after too many soda pops) tailgate cleanups. The driveway took a beating in those cases, but Bubba doesn’t have a scratch. The only problem I have it is the paint job, which sucks (see photo above), but I just use some high-temp paint to make him look good again.
So this thing is awesome, what is the problem? The problem is Bubba Keg hasn’t been manufactured or sold for a few years. I’m not sure why, I love mine, but it must not have made business sense for the folks at Bubba. I have seen that a new company has picked up the design and appears to be selling them on Amazon. The Broil King Steel Keg looks to be the exact design and I hope to get my hands on one soon to compare with my beloved steel friend. Until then, I need to slap a new coat of paint on my Bubba and cook some more BBQ.

Here is a step by step way to make a really unique Stainless Steel Grill out of a Beer Keg.
Here is the keg before we begin cutting.
Make the hinges out of a strip of stainless steel. Make sure to use stainless welding rods. Lock nuts were used to adjust how easily the top opened and closed.
Make the stand out of galvanized fencing material. it’s not stainless steel but works very well.
Rig the handle up using 2 stainless bolts and a piece of stainless rod.
Here is one of the hinges holding the top and the bottom together. Welded using a stick welder.
Closer view of handle.
You can use some of that synthetic wood that they sell at lowes. This was to make it last longer and look more professional.
This is the burner we used. We scavenged a burner from an old furnace. Find an old furnace and it contains 12 of these perfect burners.
Drill a hole, put in a thermometer and buy a regulator for the gas and rig it up to the scavenged burner. We also welded two pieces of stainless together at a 90 degree angle to provide a grease shield for the burner.
Here is the finished product. The grating is stainless. We went to a store and looked at their grills and measured the gratings. When we found a grill that had the appropriate sized grating we called the company and purchased a “replacement” from them.
