Little Rock-Based PK Grills Are A Hot Item.
Durable, long-lasting, rust-proof – these aren’t the sort of things you hear people say when they’re talking about an outdoor grill. Most of those charcoal grills you’ll find on the market these days are quick to use, quick to rust models you have to replace every year. But a PK Grill and Smoker lasts a lifetime, and they come from Little Rock.
In 1998, Paul James rediscovered PK Grills. He found one at a yard sale, took it home, cleaned it up and started using it. He was so impressed, he decided it was a worthy effort to revive the PK Grill name. With a lot of work, phone calls, bartering and such, James managed to get ownership of the PK Grill name and logo, and started producing them in Little Rock again.
The grills are simple, but they’re also simply tried and tested to be true. A lot of people out on the barbecue circuit are using these grills for their competition steaks… they’ll have a large grill for show and for cooking massive amounts of meat for the public, but the steaks that go to the judges are cooked on a PK Grill and Smoker. The reputation is growing, too.
