The Original Po Man Charcoal Grill and Cooker

Product Overview

More Value. More Flavor. More Meat. Less Fancy-Pants.

Perfectly portable  •  Simple setup  •  Cheap to operate on plain charcoal and rubbing alcohol alone  •  Patented design for maximum flavor with minimal hassle  •  Huge capacity  •  Also... it looks like a trash can.

Po Man is a noun and a verb. It’s a method and a mindset.

Light the coals, add the meat, tilt the lid and forget about it. Po Man is on autopilot. That leaves plenty of time for flip-flops and long necks, hunting, fishing, golfing... or just kicking back with family & friends. The shenanigans you get into while your Po Man cooks are up to you.

Good looks. Built to last.

Though it looks like a plain trash can, the Po Man Grill is constructed of highly durable rolled steel & stainless metals.  And it's painted to perfection with high temp. BBQ paints. The Po Man Grill is NOT galvanized.


FREE SHIPPING All Day, Every Day

Po Man Grill measures 24 inches tall and 18 inches wide.

    Wonderful!! We love our PoMan Grill!!

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Aug 2016

    I got my husband this PoMan Grill for his birthday, and we have been eating some of the most delicious food ever since! I love the flavor of the meats that he is cooking, my husband loves how easy it is to use, and my kids love that dad is cooking in a trash can! We are so pleased with this purchase, and I have a feeling I'll be buying more for presents in the future!

    So far so good

    Great product. Leaves a great taste to everything cooked. I recommend using lump charcoal over the brickets. You dont have the ash build up or chemical taste. I wish there were more videos cooking with the po man as the other brands have. I am very happy with the purchase and use it at least once a week. Temps are the only thing that is tricky with smoking and cook times.

    My Po'Man arrived Tuesday and I had to wait for Saturday to use it. Well it was worth the wait and the Money. I switched to gas years ago from a Weber for the convenience. I now have a Weber Gas Grill and the Po'man. I cooked 2 racks of ST Louis ribs last night with wine infused oak chips for the smoke. The had good rings and were the best ribs I have ever cooked, Hands down. It does burn very hot so don't overdue the charcoal. Chicken is on the menu next Saturday, Can't wait.

    Great people making great grills

    I ordered my po'man and I think the mail man ace ventura'd my box while it was being delivered. The bottom was bent up and dinged to where the walls of the grill were separating from the bottom and the starter cup wouldn't sit straight. Anyway, I emailed po'man and they gave me a few different options of how to deal with it. They sent me a new can free of charge. GREAT customer service. Can't say enough about how nice that was. Also, the grill is much sturdier than I thought it would be. The parts of the grill that are closest to the fire (fire box and drip plate) are very thick and I doubt I could burn out either of them if I tried. Granted, the can is a can and can be dented by a mailman, but the parts that I worried about burning out are good and sturdy. As for the meats the po'man turns out, I've never made bbq this good. Never made my own pulled pork, but the po'man made it perfect the first try. Overall, I'm not sure I'll ever buy any other kind of grill. This one's about as good as it gets.

    within one hour of the arrival of my po man grill I had two whole chickens smoking away! The temperature got to about 300°. The chickens were completely done within 2.5 - 3 hours. They were awesome! I love this grill and look forward to lots of meat being cooked on it!

    Paint already missing in places

    Posted by William on 8th Jun 2016

    Just received mine today. Already missing paint on the top of the can where it meets the lid. Looks like it had just been spray painted in a hurry due to all the rough spots on the top edge where the paint has clumped up. Bolt holes on the lid didn't line up all that well.For what it cost I expected better quality out of the box.

    Impossible to Mess Up

    Posted by Skyler on 31st May 2016

    This thing is magic. Received it last week and spent all Memorial Day Weekend 2016 smoking a variety of different meats. Each one turned out fantastic. Value for the price is probably unbeatable. No point in buying an expensive smoker which does the same job for a lot more money.

    Great grill/Excellent Customer service!

    Posted by Ryan Heck on 11th May 2016

    I came across this grill on and thought that if it worked as advertised I could show up my Weber and Egg grilling neighbors. Well boy howdy did it. It is a well made kit, much better than putting something together at the hardware store.

    It is a beautiful thing being in a suburbia backyard drinking beers with chickens running around and grilling in a trash can. It puts out some high quality meat.

    On top of everything else, the owner of the company called me back to answer a couple questions I had.

    Stop thinking and buy this thing.
