Got this grill as a Father's Day gift from my wife and kids and this was a major step up from my "oil barrel" grill. I also got some cool grilling accessories and some top notch ribeyes so it didn't take too much brain juice to figure out what I was going to be doing this weekend. Man the food came out spectacular...steaks, bratwurst, sausage, hot dogs and pork loin with a rosemary rub...mmmmmm, think I'll be hitting the left overs after this post.
I appreciate all the comments (both positive and negative) and here's my 2 cents worth:
1. I put it together Friday night and yes, it's a pain to assemble...give yourself a good 4-5 hours and don't loose/strip any of the nuts, bolts or other small fasteners because you don't get any extras.
2. aaronliketogrill down below shared some pictures of his rusted Royal Oak grill and said it was only a year old. For that reason my first purchase was a grill cover for under $20.
3. aaronliketogrill also mentioned that the ash tray was completely rusted through and broke. Let me quote exactly what the instruction manual says about this, "After the ashes and grill have completely cooled, it is imperative that you clean out the ashes from inside the grill before moisture can combine with the ash. Ash and moisture can create lye, which is very acidic and can cause rusting."
So...give yourself some time to assemble it, get a 60" grill cover, keep it clean and I imagine that your Royal Oak grill will put out some great meals for years to come.
