We prefer charcoal grill over gas grill and so purchased this expecting an easy and quick grill to go on overnight trips. Thought it would be much cleaner and easier to transport than a small Weber grill that we already own. Took it on a trip last weekend and it failed in every way. Luckily we were able to make it "work" - the top of the barbecue wasn't stable and so the grill kept falling into the bottom. It was so flimsy that we ended up throwing it away. So...guess we're back to the little Smokey Joe.

This is a an average grill. Compact and convenient. Great to travel with for a small cookout or picnic in the park. (Careful when removing warm/'hot charcoals afterwards if you do use t for beach/park). The only drawback is if you want to smoke something with a cover on top, this won't be your best bet. A seasoned grill-master probably would not like this very much. LOL

Love the portability & the case. You can keep it in the car or wherever. What a great concept. It works fine; only issue is disposal of coals as there aren't any heatproof handles. Also anything that uses charcoal is going to get dirty and messy. If you can hose it off after each use that's best, but it might not be an option everywhere.

This little grill is everything I hoped it would be. On more than one occasion throughout the summer I am in a situation where a grill is necessary. As most of those times are softball tournaments I not only carry equipment, but also coolers, chairs, etc. Fortunately having a truck I have always been able to take a much larger grill though always cumbersome to strap in and so forth. The small compact size of the Picnic Time is perfect and more than convenient. Using it proved even better as it requires only a small amount of charcoal and heats evenly. The carrying case is only one more plus. Should I try and find one negative it is trying to put it back in the case feet first is cumbersome as the sharp corners catch on the bag. The solution is simply put the top in first! I highly recommend this to anyone who likes things simple, compact, and convenient.

I searched for years for this grill, having had one decades ago that lasted many grill and campfire nights. We used this style for charcoal as well as firewood for about 4 years before it gave out. This one (picnic time) is bigger and sturdier. Truly folds compact without being throw away quality. The carry bag is a plus.
If space is valuable take this and leave the bells and whistles grill at home.
We had a similiar grill that was stolen. I then bought this one. I like this one better as it is sturdier. The whole concept of the grill is basic but it works quite well. I have folded the rack part and then rested it on baked potatoes to grill meat closer to the coals. The rack is folded into 3 parts and is not attached all that well but outside of that is is quite sturdy. It folds very compactly and with a foldable chimney,purchased separately elswhere, we do not take up much room in our vehicle for grilling equipment.
Just received the product on time for our BBQ. It is light weight and easy to carry. But after one use, the grill surface is a little difficult to clean.
Any way, I'm happy with it. Thanks o.co to carry this item. The price can't be beat.
