Grilling is Now Affordable

For a grill of this type, costs have risen, but not like some of its competitors. The Royal Gourmet CC1830R is an affordable charcoal grill with many features. The offset smoker will allow you more options, such as smoking a brisket or pork butt. This grill is affordably priced for the average person, wanting to grill with charcoal or wood can afford this without little extra expense.

Amazing Space for Grilling

There have been times that my family came over for a get-together around the grill. No one had a grill large enough to grill for all of us, I had a decent size grill but not quite large enough to grill for 22 people. This grill has the space needed for large gatherings and you should be able to grill large amounts of food with ease. It took care of our needs without any strain.

You can grill steaks one night by setting up the main chamber for searing; the following day, use the firebox for smoking a brisket. You have little difficulty cleaning up after each grilling event.

Using the Offset Smoker is Fun and Easy

When you start using the firebox, it may take some time and practice to get the right temperature. Using your charcoal chimney, get the charcoal hot then, release the charcoal into the firebox, and start adding small amounts of wood for heat management and smoke.

A favorite quick meal for my family is hot dogs and hamburgers, occasionally we would smoke a brisket or a pork butt(shoulder). This was difficult with the size of my grill, it was too small. Royal Gourmet CC1830Rhad the size needed to grill for my family, with the best price. Finally, I had a grill that was large enough to grill or smoker!

Locating a grill large with features I needed was difficult to find. We found the Royal Gourmet CC1830R large enough to do the job while not breaking the bank. We could now grill for a large number of people, this took some time, but was worth it. Having 811 square inches for grilling and smoking allows you to grill your favorites and a wide variety of foods.

Your Favorites Found The Next Level

Choosing the Royal Gourmet CC1830R allows the introduction of different types of grilling, this is a certainly positive step to take. You now have room to try new recipes and experiment with flavors. As your technique improves, so does the number of recipes for grilling. This new knowledge helps create your recipes and flavors.

This grill encourages experimentation with food, herbs, and spices, while other grills make it difficult to try new recipes or experiment with new flavors. The simplicity of this grill allows you to be more creative when thinking of new ideas for your grill. New recipes may call for new marinades or spices to enhance the flavor of what you grill. As you gain more experience with this grill, trying new techniques becomes second nature.

Experiment For New Flavors and Techniques

As you experiment with herbs and spices, finding creative ways of enhancing the flavor of your food becomes second nature. You have begun a new adventure as you experiment with new flavors, rubs, and marinades for your meals.

Creating the char marks as if from the steakhouse is no longer difficult; no problem, when you reach searing temperature(400-450F) turn your food one-quarter turn. You have just created your char marks without the price of the steakhouse. Not only have you improved your technique but, you have taken another step on your journey to becoming a grill master that people want to ask for advice. It tastes better since you did it so easily. Your enthusiasm for grilling is steadily growing by the day.

One of My Favorite Recipes

The “warming rack” allows you to grill other foods while the main grill is being used for other foods. The warming rack is located above the main grates in the cooking chamber. Using this rack to grill corn on the cob is quite easy, especially, when smoking ribs or brisket. This allows you to increase the amount you grill while keeping the main chamber for your main course. You will enjoy the flavor this brings to your meal without a doubt. The way I do my corn on the cob is very savory and a family favorite.

This is my personal recipe for corn on the cob:

8 ears corn on the cob

aluminum foil large enough to cover the corn

salt to taste ( some people use chipotle chili powder as well)

butter on the foil under the corn

roll the foil over the corn until it is covered

put on heating rack 1 hour before the brisket or ribs are done.

      I have an older model of this grill and have used it for 25 years. This grill even though light in weight is awesome in performance. The corn on the cob recipe is one that my wife and I tried 15 years ago. It is still as tasty today as it was the first time. The videos were meant to show how easy it was to use and put together.

      The Royal Gourmet CC1800R grill is so versatile that it can be used daily. I have used a grill daily for several years, the thing that makes it so easy to use is you can actually get started the day before. The way I get started the day before is having another type of meat marinating ahead of time. 

      The sturdy wheels that come with the grill make it easy to use. If you need to change position because of the weather then you’ve got it covered.

    What caught my eye with this grill is that you said it is big enough to cook for a lot of people at the same time. When we have our whole family over, it is a bit tedious to try and cook everything in relays, and often the fire goes out before everything is cooked.

    I also like that you can grill or smoke with this which is a huge bonus, as who doesn’t love smoked chicken?

    Thanks for the recipe suggestion. I would have never thought to cook my corn on the grill, and I will definitely try that. The trick is remembering to get it on an hour before you want to eat.

      This grill is awesome. You have 811 square inches on the grill itself, not counting the warming rack which is another 100 square inches. You can do several chickens at a time for the perfect flavor on each of them. Having the ability to grill for the entire family makes it a wonderful grill to use.

      You will find that this grill will be a welcome addition to the grills you currently have. The ease of use of the Royal Gourmet CC1800R is not rivaled by many. You are able to get that smoky flavor you crave with ease. Clean up is a breeze with this grill. I like to do some cleaning as I grill, it makes the finish cleaning so easy.

    I love this article! It reminds me of barbecue sessions that I used to have with my family to eat grilled meat. I really like what you said about having affordable grills for your summer barbecues. Personally, I will check this grill as I am looking for one and I haven’t found many quality grills in here. And I’ll also definitely find an apartment with a balcony to start my barbecue grills

      You will find this grill to be heavy duty and able to handle heavy usage. Its affordability makes it a favorite of the first time griller or the pit master. You can try many different recipes on this grill with great success. This will bring those memories back in a hurry but with an added emphasis on how well you grill.

    A very thorough and detailed review of the offset smoker charcoal grill CC1830R. However, I found it odd that on the first video the aluminum disposable pan was placed at the bottom which I think could hinder the proper circulation of heat. What is your take on that, is it a good idea? Because first-time users of offset smoker CC grill who might find this website and watch that video would think it’s okay.

    I worked for a company and handled home appliances before and we have developed a charcoal grill for one client in Vietnam, yes I agree this type of grill is one of the most affordable. I was smiling when I saw CC1830F on the second video because that’s what our client has selected since it’s, even more, cheaper than CC1830R minus the side rack.

     Keep grilling!

      I have not found using an aluminum pan causing circulation with the heat. The pan if it is not too tall catches the ash as it falls and makes it easy to dispose of the ash.

      The difference between the CC1800R and the CC1830F are very slim. The video that I linked to was still appropriate since the differences are basically cosmetic.
