Heritage Grill Manufacturer PK Grills Announces the Release Of First New Grill Model In Over Forty Years
LITTLE ROCK, AR., November 9, 2016 - PK Grills announced today the availability of the all new PK360 Grill & Smoker based on its iconic thick cast aluminum grill capsule, a design which dates back to the 1950s. PK’s aluminum grills evenly distribute and retain heat for superior grilling and smoking, while also achieving the quintessential exterior sear that outdoor chefs covet. Aluminum is also inherently rust-proof, which along with the grills' elegant design, contributes to PK’s famous durability and longevity. Combined with PK's unique and versatile 4-point venting system, the PK360 capsule is well suited for hot and fast grilling and low and slow barbecue cooking.
"When we set out to design the next generation of PK Grills, we wanted to build the highest quality, premium charcoal grill and smoker available in the market. The barbecue grill market is unfortunately often known for shoddy products and low quality materials that don’t last. With the PK360, our guiding design principle was “no compromises, anywhere”. We wanted to build an amazing cooker with superior longevity and a beautiful design that our customers would be proud to display on their back porches. The PK360 has a robust set of features and the highest quality materials we could find, offering our customers more value for their money than traditional charcoal grills or ceramic kamados. The PK360 is the best and last grill you’ll ever own.”
Customers can pre-order the new PK360 Grill and Smoker via the company's website pk360grill.com
About PK: The first PK Grill & Smoker was created in Tyler, TX in 1952. The simple venting system and aluminum construction produced a grill that excelled at both hot and fast grilling and low and slow barbecue cooking. The popular grills were sold all over the mid-south under the brand Portable Kitchen and in 1958 the company sold and moved operations to Little Rock, Arkansas where they exist today.
In the 1950’s and 1960’s, the PK Grill was the best outdoor cooker money could buy, and many argue that it has remained so over its history. In recent years, the Classic PK grill has been re-established as a favorite of backyard enthusiasts and professionals alike. Among other accolades, the International Steak Cook-off was won by contestants using Classic PK Grills in both 2015 and 2016. Today, Portable Kitchens fulfills a mission to improve upon our own standards and make the best outdoor cooker available at any price. The new PK360 Grill & Smoker is the result of several years of design and development and over sixty years of outdoor grilling excellence. It is the new generation of PK Grill.
