The Hasty Bake arrived Friday evening and I didn't get to open the box until the next day.
The wait was not easy!
The Hasty Bake Company, located in Tulsa Oklahoma, has been in business since 1948.
That's amazing to me and it says a lot for the company.
To be in business for this long AND to have a long line of happy customers.... they must be doing something right. :)
I have a feeling they know what they're doing when it comes to these charcoal ovens.
This one is the Gourmet model...they have a wide variety to choose from.
The only thing to assemble is to attach the side table and attach the handle to the hood. Very easy....
The shelving, grates and handles are contained in a box in the bottom storage area of the unit. Hasty Bake even includes a package of their lump charcoal and fire starter.
A drip cup for grease attaches beneath the shelf on the left side...
The handle for raising or lowering the hot coal rack....
You can lower the hot coal rack to smoke at lower temperatures or raise the rack for a high-heat sear.
The lower grates are V shaped, allowing any drippings to be channeled to the center, then out to the drip cup.
The hood is also ventless... circulating heat and smoke around the food.
Now for the test run... :)
For more info on these and other Hasty Bake models, check out my smoking Pals site... Big Poppa Smokers. I'm sure he would be happy to set you up with one and his service can not be beat! (Thank you BP!)
I'm looking forward to seeing what this unit will do!
