I wonder why they named it "Smokey Joe"?
It does smoke, but only when starting up. After that, and certainly with the lid on, it is pretty good.

Re: Portable charcoal BBQ

Tried my lotus grill out on the weekend - what a power horse, it worked a treat!!

It was a bit of a bitch to clean but I think you could try using alfoil.

I saw that its currently 89- on Galaxies' deal of the day

I found that the secret lies in soaking... and getting rid of the grease residues as soon as possible - don't let it sit overnight.

What worked for me like a charm last time (unlike after my 1st use when I left it overnight and then spent 3 subsequent days ribbing it with various approaches):
1. A friend first threw it into dishwasher - but I guess any immediate "wash" will do
2. Apply a mix of vinegar and baking soda paste with a sponge
3. Dip it into hot water + dish washing liquid (+ some more vinegar and baking soda if you wish) - let it soak for 12+ hours
4. Use the brush (I used plastic dish thing, basically from IKEA, but messing should be fine too; not sure if it will damage the stainless steel - shouldn't) and some grill cleaning spray/foam (I found something bio at Migros)
5. Profit

It is a process but now it's shining perfectly spotless.
