Landmann USA 525110 Pizza Kettle Charcoal Grill

8.5 POR Score
Pros
Great price, good looks and no need to buy conversion kit - it's included
Cons
Some concern over design issue that limits heat production
Summary
At this price point, I just want a grill that gives me a decent pizza, in a decent timeframe at a decent price. I get this with the Landmann ... and a little bit more (like great looks and built-in value). Definitely a "buy" for those looking for something in this space.

**Unfortunately, it looks like the Landmann Grill is discontinued at the moment.  It may or may not return to Amazon, but if you like, you can check out our thoughts for just in case!!

We’ve talked about the Weber Charcoal Grill coupled with the KettlePizza Pizza Oven Kit and what a great combo this makes.   Well, that’s actually true, but here’s a little secret; I have a deal that might even suit you better! SSSHHH!

We stumbled upon a grill that is already made to go for pizza without needing an insert kit, plus it can do lots of other foods just like the Weber/KettlePizza combo.

The Good
  • all in one solution for backyard kettle pizza-making
  • less expensive than other options in the same class
  • pizza stone and peel are included
  • portable
  • handsome
  • convertible from regular kettle oven to pizza oven
The Bad
  • some inherent challenges keeping the temperature hot enough for pizza (especially after already making 2 or 3 pies)
  • could probably do with a bit more ventilation and larger chimney/vent to allow fire to stay/get hotter longer

    Included Peel

this is a solid unit for what it is, and should last for a very long time if treated well (ie. Covered when not in use)

Provides plenty of space for preparing food.

So What Say We?

If price were not an object at all, I might go with the Weber brand and the KettlePizza insert. However, I’m not a multi-millionaire, so price, in fact, IS an object. In that case, I’m partial to this kettle grill since I believe it does the same job with the same goods and bads that the Weber and KettlePizza have. Hey, a few hundred bucks for excellent backyard pizza! Not bad, I’d say!
