The grill is beautiful, innovative, and just pretty fantastic. I own a charcoal grill, a propane grill, and a smoker. This thing can do stuff that none of those can. Burgers and dogs, of course, but also the best steaks I've ever grilled (because it gets hot enough to get that really nice crust). Baby backs, whole chickens, thighs, pizzas...everything I've cooked on this thing has been better. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the charcoal "briqs" it uses, but I totally get it now. They come up to temp faster than propane, they're easier than charcoal and they just unlock a ton of possibility.

I picked up the chef's package as I was intrigued by the pizza stone situation, and I gotta say, the versatility of this thing is amazing! The fact that it can get to 900 degrees is a game changer, and being ready to start grilling in under 10 minutes has had the unintended effect of me grilling a lot more than I used to. The fit and finish of the whole thing is very nice, and looks great on our patio (unlike the old drum grill I was using). I was worried about the cooking area not being large enough, but was pleasantly surprised - the photos don't do it justice. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and am looking forward to seeing what else I can grill.
Thanks for the review!!

We’ve had our Spark for 5 months and can honestly say, there’s no going back to propane for easy weeknight grillin’. EVER! The flavor + convenience factor is a game changer. No more sacrificing flavor for ease of use. Insert Briq, turn the dial to ignite it & set the temp and in just 5 minutes we’re fiery hot charcoal ready. Half an ice cold beer. When the Spark starts smoking my dogs know it’s time to start begging. Spark is the ultimate 3-in-1 tool. 100% happy. 100% recommend.
Thanks so much for the kind words!!!
We're so happy to hear that the grill is a hit for you and your four legged friends.

Can’t say enough about how amazing my Spark grill is. Time saving and makes it so easy to cook a great meal every evening for everyone in the family. And the versatility is insane - to go from a slow and low cook of ribs to then a high heat pizza? Outstanding stuff and couldn’t be happier.
The kind words are much appreciated!
It is great to hear we can save you some time and effort and enable you to cook awesome ribs and pizza, who doesn't love that?
If it wasn’t enough that this grill is amazing, which it is, the support and overall brilliance of this company keep on surprising me. From the after sales support questions that are rapidly answered to the delicious recipes they provide, I could not be happier or more thrilled with my purchase. Worth every penny and more.
This is what we love to hear!
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with everyone.
Our customer team LOVES to help, so it's great to know our service was up to par and that you are thrilled with your grill.
Amazingly easy to use. And man, is this thing beautiful. I was skeptical at first that it would do what it said, but not only is this thing up to heat and ready to cook in the time that it takes me to bring all my food outside, but it cooks MORE evenly than most gas grills I have used. And it makes everything it cooks incredibly delicious including every vegetable I've thrown on it. I've tried all the Briqs and I pretty much just use the everyday brick for everything now since it lasts longer and is up and running just as fast as the quick Briq. I am HAPPY to pay a few cents extra over regular briquets for this game-changing upgrade in experience. Seriously, I could not be happier. Also, the videos don't do the dial system justice- It looks so cool in person! My only possible gripe would be that there is no great way to store the cord- but that is such a minimal inconvenience compared to all the up-sides.
Thanks for sharing this detailed review with everyone. It is so gratifying for us to see that you went from being a skeptic to writing these positive words about our grill.
You make a great point on storing our power cord, this is an excellent topic we can bring to the idea board for future product changes.

Spark makes it easy to grill anything you can imagine.
I am really loving this grill and offer three points of accolades: 1) the grill itself is really fun to use- it may take alittle learning curve but I am really enjoying the ride to learn/play with the new system 2) the food tastes great with a unique smoke flavor that is nice and which I havent noticed with other charcoal/wood smokers and grills and 3) customer service has been the best I've experienced anywhere. For those grill-heads who have multiple grills/smokers etc...(I have four- traditional Weber, original Traeger when they were owned by the Traeger family, a recently acquired Blackstone griddle and now Spark), the Spark is one I am really glad to have. It really does offer a new experience and flavor:)
Absolutely obsessed with this grill. I'll be using it all year in Boston weather because of how this makes my food taste. The controlled temperature with charcoal is such a game changer and get a ton of compliments about how it looks on my deck. Next up is smoking a turkey for Thanksgiving... wish me luck.
I’ve had my grill for almost a year now and enjoy using it every time. On my second or third time using the grill I had an issue with a briq not fully igniting. I was able to chat with a representative through the app and determined I hadn’t left the lid open long enough. They were kind enough to give me a credit to replace the briq. I really like using the temperature probs and the alerts provided by the app. It is rather heavy, a testament to the build quality, but can make it a little tough to move around the patio. I’ve never used charcoal before but find the flavor much better than gas and this grill works better than any gas grill I’ve ever used.
1. Performs as advertised! Quick, easy and reliable!
2. Wonderful charcoal taste without having to constantly hover over the grill to monitor the temperature.
3. This cannot be overstated...The Spark Support Team is simply outstanding! Their focus on the customer and speed is unmatched!
1. Weight...Very solid and durable, but I wish they had placed 4 wheels on the cart, instead of 2. Hauling a 100 lb. grill on just 2 wheels is daunting
2. Still "fine tuning" the unexpected. When cooking something on low and slow, it's usually something with a higher fat content. There was no "catch pan" for the grease that was rendering and when I checked on the ribs I was cooking after 3 hours, I was greeted with approx. 1/3 cup of grease dripping underneath the grill (thank God, I had placed a mat underneath the grill). Contacted them immediately (it was 4p on the Labor Day weekend) thinking they would get the recording on Tues., but Monica (from their wonder Customer Support Team!) contacted me almost immediately, and told me they would send a "catch pan," which they did, but it has no aluminum liner and is a pain to clean
Great Product! Would have given them 5 stars, but cannot forget that fat overflowing (it was thought that the fat would drip onto the Briq's and burn away). They do need to make sure they send a "Spark Note" to those who have purchased the grill, making them aware of issues such as this. I would hate to have another problem that they're aware of, but didn't bother to notify me of the issue and remedy in advance.
My wife and I live in Naples and grill outside at least once a week. We were reccomended Spark to replace our older family sized grill and have been very impressed with performance over last 6 months. I just bought the Pizza making equipment so can’t wait to produce pizzas on my lanai !!
We absolutely love our grill. Love the technology behind it but also love that its still a traditional grill in some aspects. Definitely one of the best investments.
I was always intimidated by grilling and never had any real interest in owning a grill but the Spark grill has changed my life. It is so easy to use and precision temp control is incredible. It’s allowed me to get more creative with my cooking. I love the connectivity with my phone too.
This grill is like taking all your grills and putting them together. You can make pizzas, steaks, burgers, veggies, etc. This is the best grill I have ever owned.
Been easy to put together and use with all the video help. Prepackaged charcoal a big plus. Biggest impression was Fourth of July weekend, with company coming over and slow cooking my first side of ribs - someone at Spark interrupted their holiday to give me advice on my ribs!
I’ve owned a Traeger, a gas Weber, and have used a Green Egg… Spark has all of the benefits of these previous grills, but in ONE product. I love the quick briqs for most of my grilling and the flavor and temperature control are unmatched in my opinion. Very easy to use and clean. Highly recommend!
Spark Grills has a great idea and product. I've been in touch with them several times over the past few months and I can say, after a lifetime's experience (I'm retired) that I have never come across customer service as prompt, efficient, and responsive as their customer service. You know how we all leave a 9 when rating good service? Well, Spark's service is definitely a ten.
Beautiful design, adjustable sustainable temperatures, amazing charcoal flavors, easy to clean, beyond easy to light, comparable prices for charcoal, connects to your phone, What are you waiting for?
Spark reached out to me to make sure I was happy with their product. After addressing a couple concerns they shipped a new grill and briqs at no charge. I am way past the 100 day trial also.
Not many companies would go to this length to make sure the customer is happy!
This grill is an engineering marvel. Truly! There’s nothing like this on the market and the ability to closely control temperature and grill time is fantastic. You will be the envy of the neighborhood with this beauty. We have never been as consistently successful with a grill before Spark. We are COMPLETELY satisfied with this purchase. The only thing more impressive than this grill is the unwavering customer support that comes with it! The support team is PHENOMENAL! Seriously - best in class. They actually want their customers to not only be happy but successful. Do not hesitate for a second to reach out to them. They really love helping their customers. We love our Spark grill; it has definitely contributed to an awesome summer. A really great investment.
Quick heat, oven like control, charcoal taste. I’ve been using my Spark consistently for 7 months and haven’t been disappointed once. It actually does what the company says it does, which is rare these days. 100% recommend!
Awesome grill. convenience of gas grill with flavor of charcoal and the control of an oven. It's the best of all worlds.
Clean up is a breeze.
Love this bbq! The look might throw you off as it looks aesthetically pleasing but don’t let it because this thing is a beast. I have cook everything on here from ribs to hotdogs. Clean up is easy temperature control is unparalleled. Love this grill. Only feedback is wish the cart had a shelf or two on it to help hold the briks and maybe an ash bucket or something. But hands down best bbq I have owned. I have had regular charcoal, gas, and treager Spark is awesome my wife said it is the only bbq she enjoys cooking on.
If you love to grill but you want it to be simple, clean, easy and idiot proof, this is the grill you must have. I received mine a year ago and use it almost every night to cook everything but my breakfast cereal.
