I just got my first accessory, the fenced roasting rack. I think it looks like something that should be included in the base package.

I've finally been able to take the time to access the COBB North American web page to see the videos as well as a few of the You Tube videos and we're sold on this deal. I've sent Cobb an email requesting a date for the entire kit. We'll see how they are to respond.

Well, they haven't responded yet and I found the Kitchen-in-a-Bag available for the same price with free shipping at Two Brothers Grillin' located in Jackson, TN so I ordered it just now. They also have most of the accessories available. You might want to check them out here: Home - Two Brothers Grillin'

Do any of you Cobb owners find it hard to clean?
It is a pain to clean, but you do not have to clean some of the parts after every use. I try to use it all day for my meals and then clean. Eggs/sausage/toast in am and burgers/dogs or a roast in pm. Then clean.

Our new Kitchen-in-a-Bag just arrived: the complete Cobb Grill. I had it delivered to my work address for security reasons so I'm not going to open the box until I get home. It's like Christmas again!

Wowed by exceptional customer service

Well, our Cobb Grill arrived last week and I was thrilled to run home after work and unbox it. We bought our Cobb from Two Brothers BBQ in Tennessee and they shipped very fast.

I was unhappy to find my new toy was dented. It seems that the shipper man handled it in transit and the one of the handles on the wok/fry pan was pushed in and dented the pan where the handle attached. The damage wouldn't affect the functionality of the product but I was still upset because you expect perfect for that price.

I emailed 2Brothers late on Friday night and didn't expect to hear from them until Monday after the open of business. Shocked me outta my socks when I had a response to my email within 30 minutes requesting pictures of the damage. I sent them six shots of the dent as well as the cartons. 10 minutes later, Friday night at about 8:00 pm, my phone rang and a real person called to confirm that they intended to take care of everything. Seems that they check every single order before shipping to verify that the products are perfect before they leave their door. I will be receiving a new wok/fry pan as replacement. I'm a customer for life.

THAT is how exceptional customer service is achieved!

We found them to be extremely helpful, especially when we were trying to put together all the accessories, when the original company went out off business.

The rubs they sell are pretty good, too.

Broke out the Cobb tonight for the first meal to initiate both the cooker and the cook. I'll confess I read the directions, again. It took me about three minutes since this thing is so very simple to use. I wrapped slice potatoes, carrots, and celery in foil with a pat of butter to drop into the mote while it was heating. After it came up to cooking temp, I put some nice steaks on for our inaugural feast. If those steaks hadn't been a little on the hefty side, they would have burned because I left them on side one for almost 25 minutes but flipped them at the last second for an additional five minutes and they were WONDERFUL! Ahhhh, the tastes of summer.

This Cobb Grill is gonna be fantastic!!!! Wooohooo!

Good grief!
My steaks get four minutes a side on the BBQ ( three for the son-in-law ).
Half an hour cooking a steak?
Was the grill lit?

My experience with the Cobb is that it is a slow cook, but I didn't think that slow.

Yeah. It's not really a grill. And its firebox is small. My biggest problem with using ours is waiting until it's really hot enough to use.

But, I love that it's charcoal fueled and allows me to cook at the picnic table, without carrying a Coleman stove and those disposable propane canisters.

I cook at the picnic table. I don't use the 1lb. canisters. I don't have to carry charcoal or dispose of the ashes and the grill gets hot within minutes.
My Napoleon BBQ has two burners so I can leave one off and cook a whole chicken indirect.

Different strokes Glenn, at 4 minutes a side it's still mooing . Half an hour is fine with me. On the plus side of that, in over 40 years of marriage there's only been a few times that the charcoal was less burnt. BTW, I was the grill master on a couple of them

Well, to be honest, I was busy with something else and almost forgot that I intended to flip the steaks in the final phase of cooking. I was worried that they might be burnt; they weren't, but they were almost 1 1/2 inches thick and very good.


I will say that all these years of grilling have taught me that I've been doing things wrong by cooking directly over the coals and burning or destroying more meat than creating a nice dinner. Also, it's obvious that the Cobb is different from anything else that I've ever used. It's substantially smaller and uses a lot less fuel than our yard/home grill.


Also, we don't like rare of red meat, so it'll take a little longer for our dinner to finish. This is truly a case of "your mileage may vary."

Maiden Camping Trip cooking plans

Going for our maiden adventure this weekend after a long list of upgrades and repairs. We plan on using the Cobb for almost everything and will be making breakfast twice as well as lunch and dinner. Breakfast will be bacon/eggs/pancakes. Lunch will be chili or chicken vegetable soup and dinner will be grills pork chops with baked potatoes and broccoli. This should be easy. I'm packing a hot plate as backup for breakfasts since I don't like cold food and can't cook eggs and pancakes in the same pan without making a mess.

We have two. We have all the accessories for one, which we use between two.

We happened upon a great, out of box sale, at camping world.

Works great to make whole, meals... Pancake and eggs and bacon.

The Cobb is a crock pot of cooking with charcoal instead of electric.
