Guide Review - Cobb Premier Grill
The Cobb is very efficient. A handful of charcoal will cook for several hours. The instructions say to light a fire starter in the fire chamber, place the fire grid on top of the starter, put 6-8 charcoal briquettes in the fire grid, and wait up to 30 minutes for the charcoals to turn grey. At this point you can place a cooking surface on the Cobb to begin cooking. I found a quicker way to get started without using a fire starter. I start my charcoal in a chimney starter, which gets them grey in about 10 minutes. I then use steel tongs to transfer the charcoal to the Cobb and place the cooking surface and lid on the Cobb for 5 minutes. I found myself without fire starters one day, so I tried this way to get my Cobb ready to cook. Either way, once the Cobb is ready, you can cook to your heart's delight. I like cooking Johnsonville Italian Sausage on the Cobb. I get it started and pour a can of beer into the moat. I cook the sausages for about 30-40 minutes, turning several times in the process. They come out great. The enclosed cookbook has lots of great recipes for beef, chicken, lamb, pork, seafood and vegetables. The Cobb can cook a whole bird or a good-sized roast. It collects the drippings, so you can make a gravy too. The Cobb can even make pizza.
Conclusion: The Cobb Premiere is a go-anywhere cook-anything grill, that's ideal for camping, picnics, home cooking and tail-gate parties.
