The Handcrafted 12 Gauge Stainless Steel Weapon of Choice.
The M16 was designed and built for competition cooking where precision temperature control and ruggedness are critical.
Performance: The M16 is packed with high performance grilling features never seen on charcoal grills of it’s size. It’s no secret. The M16 is the go to grill for World Champion Steak Cookers and Competition BBQ cooks across the world.
Airflow: The M16’s QUAD Damper system is vastly different from the competition. The placement of the Dual Bottom Dampers are strategically located on the sides of the bottom base and underneath the charcoal basket. This unique design allows airflow to never having the capability of being blocked by charcoal, ash, or debris and allowing a constant even flow of clean air underneath the entire basket of hot coals. This eliminates unwanted temperature spikes in various wind conditions.
The Lid features Dual exhaust dampers, one on each side to allow heat to pass around your food instead of dampers placed on top of the lid which allows heat to exit directly over your food. This style of damper design allows free flowing heat to travel over your food, for a more even cook. By having full control of all 4 dampers on top and bottom allows more complete even coverage of heat over the entire cooking area.
Gasket Sealed: The M16 is precision made with a gasket sealed lid. This gasket seal is vital in precision temperature control. This keeps all heat inside and allows the dampers to do all of the work. Even the smallest of gaps can lead to unwanted gusts of air into your cooking chamber or heat escaping. A charcoal grill of competition caliber should completely have the dampers do all of the work.
Damper Size: The M16’s dampers are far larger than anything you have ever seen on a charcoal grill. These large dampers can be choked down to very slow moving airflow or opened up for high heat fast flowing. The airflow on the M16 can rival those of much larger offsets. This changes everything when it comes to color, moisture, and flavor of your food. There are no limitations to championship caliber cooking.
From precision controlled low and slow airflow to high heat fast moving; the M16 is not only the best high performance charcoal grill on the market, but it’s also the best built.
Built to Last: This term gets thrown around a lot these days and it seems like everyone is trying coin their grill is “built like a tank”. We can not help to laugh at these statements from other manufacturers. Once you get your hands on an M16, you will see we are not playing around. The M16 is built from 12 gauge mild steel or 12 gauge 316 stainless steel with heavy duty 12 gauge steel charcoal baskets. We could have made it from much thinner steel, made it lighter, or add gimmicky features; but that does not win championships. We don’t want to beat the competition, we want to destroy it. The M16’s 12 gauge construction is completed welded solid. This thick steel is critical in heat retention and durability. We design and build cookers to last for many years, if not forever. You will not find a piece of cheap plastic or nickel plated parts on the M16. Every fastener and even the hinge is solid 304 stainless steel. You get what you pay for with an M Grill.
It’s a World Class Charcoal Grill and Smoker: The M16 is not only a World Champion Grilling Machine, it’s also a bonafide smoker. The thick steel, gasket sealed lid, and precision damper control will allow you to smoke efficiently with a minimum amount of charcoal. You have full control over the dampers to draft left or right. With a full basket of charcoal, we have achieved hot coals for over 15+ hours.
Whether it’s neighborhood supremacy or World Championships, the M16 is the best small footprint cooker with huge capabilities.
Portability: The M16 can easily be broken down for competitions or simply tailgating with your friends. The Lid features two stainless steel hinges that allow you to slide it off the base to lighten your load for easy transporting. Quickly remove the charcoal basket and ash pan for an even lighter load.
