Take savoring the outdoors to a whole new level with the Sportsman’s Pro charcoal grill. Whatever the season, whatever the occasion—this grill will be the place to gather for good times and memorable meals.

Cast Iron Sportsman's Pro Charcoal Grill

Just like all our cast iron cookware, Lodge seasoned the Sportsman’s Pro in our foundry, making it easy to care for and ready to use. Follow these simple steps to get grilling:

  1. Place the cast iron grill on a nonflammable, heat-proof surface, such as the ground, concrete, a stone slab, an outdoor cooking table, or cinder blocks.
  2. Use the two enclosed bolts to attach the grill bowl to the grill base.
  3. Slide the ash drawer onto the runners inside the grill base.
  4. Wearing cooking gloves to protect your hands, use a chimney starter to light the charcoal. Then pour the lit charcoal into the grill bowl.
  5. Rinse off the grate, place it over the grill bowl, and allow the grill to heat up.
  6. Use the 2 enclosed Hook & Carry Handles to lift the grate to add coals, maneuver the grill, and slide the ash drawer to open or close.
  7. Apply oil to the grill to prevent food from sticking.
  8. Cook food to your preference and enjoy!
