There’s nothing quite like juicy hamburgers, sizzling steaks, or veggie kabobs fresh off the grill. With each bite you can taste the added smoky flavors that you can only get from cooking over a flame. With the tabletop cast iron Kickoff Grill, you can bring the charcoal-grilled flavor with you wherever the party may go.

Take the compact 12 Inch Cast Iron Kickoff Grill with you on vacation, to the stadium parking lot for tailgating, or set it up in your backyard for a weekend cookout. The two-piece design requires no assembly, and with a simple twist, you can adjust the draft as you cook. Cooking over coals has never been easier.

How to use the Kickoff Grill

Just like all of our cast iron cookware, we’ve seasoned the Kickoff Grill right in our foundry, making it ready to use and easy to care for. Follow these easy steps to get started grilling:

  1. Place the cast iron grill on the ground, concrete, an outdoor cooking table, or cinder blocks.
  2. Use a chimney starter to light your charcoal, then place the lit coals in the base of the Kickoff Grill.
  3. Use the included Hook & Carry Handles to set the domed grill grate on top of the base. You can rotate the grill grate to adjust the airflow to dial in the temperature.
  4. Remove the grill grate with the Hook & Carry Handles to add more coals as needed.
  5. Apply oil to the grill to avoid food sticking.
  6. Cook your food and enjoy.
