Meadow Creek BBQ42C Collapsible Charcoal Grill


The Meadow Creek BBQ42C brings you the ease you need to perfect your chicken recipes at your next big cookout, catering event or any gathering. Featuring double-sided “sandwich” locking grates, cooking chicken to a perfect crispy finish has never been easier.

The BBQ42C is the portable counterpart of the BBQ42. This cooker is small enough to place on the back of your truck or SUV, but big enough to cook the same amount of meat as the BBQ42 (up to 40lbs of chicken). The BBQ42C Charcoal Grill is fully loaded with stainless steel locking, double-sided, pivoting grates that make it easy to flip chicken all at once. Being able to flip your cook all at once cuts your cooking time in half and also allows you to cook your food evenly providing you with crispy, juicy chicken results every time. The BBQ42C may have been designed with a chicken lover in mind, but has proven to be great for cooking more than just chicken. Use the BBQ42C cooker to easily grill steaks, patties, hot dogs, spare ribs and more.

The BBQ42C is handcrafted in the USA from 13 gauge welded steel and coated in heat resistant matte black paint for max durability. Expect the BBQ42C cooker to be by your side for many years come, the BBQ42C is built to last.
