Ample Cooking Space: There’s 480 square inches of cooking space available on the Broil King Keg 5000. Its primary cooking area holds about 13 burgers, while a secondary cooking rack provides an additional 200 square inches of room. The grill’s two-position grate can be removed or repositioned closer to the charcoal.
Great For Tailgating: At just 126 pounds, the Keg 5000 is one of the lightest and most portable kamado grills on the market. This model has removable side shelves, can hook on a trailer hitch and locks at the lid. All of these features make it a great grill for tailgating.
Multiple Air Dampers: The Keg 5000 features two air dampers: a cast-iron damper on the top and a dual-purpose damper resting just above the stand. Both of these vents control the airflow within the grill, while the lower plate also doubles as an ash removal tray.
Fuel-Efficient Design: This model has a steel body insulated with fiberglass, so it retains heat well and reduces fuel consumption. It’s so fuel efficient that it only requires a football-size pile of charcoal to cook meats like chicken and fish.
Limited Warranty: Broil King backs this model with a 10-year warranty on the body and a 2-year warranty on the parts and paint. It’s not a horrible guarantee, but the Keg 5000’s warranty isn’t as extensive as other top-level kamado grills on the market.
