Just go to www.hastybake.com and take a look at them there. They haven't changed much over the years unless you run into some really early models, which are referred to as coffin tops. The lids on those are a lot different than what they've produced since the 1960's.

Mike,
Is there a reason you are using the elevated grill grate in the second picture?
Thanks, Jon

Do they all pretty much look the same, with the exception of the color? Some guy here in the Battle Ground,Wa area had one that he was giving away on CL last month. He never replied to my question as to whether or not it was a hasty bake. Now I know it was. Thanks guys.

Prior to the invention of the Hasty Bake in 1948 by Grant Hastings, if you had something to cook outdoors on, it was likely a brick built-in. Even the "grills" of that era were basically fire pits with a cooking grate.

Hastings developed one of the first enclosed units and used the line "it's the hood that does the good" in his marketing. He was very interested in how the smoke traveled throughout the unit and knew that smoke produced the best flavor in whatever one was cooking.

Looking through the old literature I have on the company, it seems as though Grant was always on a quest to find something that he couldn't cook on a Hasty. The recipes and cooking methods are many and varied, which surprises me given the era that this was taking place. He was incredibly creative in all aspects of operating the company.

It's kinda hard to explain why those of us who own them love them like we do and some of us are admittedly a bit warped in this regard--not that there's anything wrong with that . . . Laughing All I can say is get one if you can and you'll soon understand as well.

Thanks, Jon

That was a few cooks ago Wink , so I'm not sure, but I'd guess I was cooking something else underneath the extension grate. The extension grate is great for adding additional grill space for longer cooks.

Thanks

uh huum....let me clear my throat. Just kidding. 3 major complaints about charcoal grills that we address,
#1-hard to clean. Hasty Bake has a full length and width ashpan on the bottom of the unit that catches all the ashes and drippings. Open the full length firedoor and slide the ashpan out and dump it. Also has a grease drain that pulls excess grease away from the fire and into a disposible cup, less grease on fire and in bottom of unit.
#2 Hard to use. As a grill the HB has an adjustible firebox that moves the charcoal from the ashpan (about 18" away from cook surface) up to the cooking grills giving you precise control over the direct fire. At anytime you can increase or decrease the amount of direct heat by moving the fire up and down. And its infinitely adjustable, (not set on notches). so if you need a little more heat, raise it up a little, or a lot less, drop it FAR AWAY from the food. Just like turning the burner up or down on a gas range. For indirect cooking (smoking/baking) a baffle is placed over the coals to stop the direct heat from searing the food, utlizing only indirect heat. This "heat deflector" can be easily put on or taken off switching from grilling to smoking. Indirect temperature is controlled by dampening or opening the intake and exhaust vents, like most other smokers. Refueling while smoking is easy, open the firedoor, add raw charcoal/wood chunks, and open the vents to stoke the fresh charcoal. You never have to open the lid, move the food, or grates (cheap shot at BGE) Finally
#3 Hard to start. Open the firedoor and place hardwood in the firebox. Put newspaper, fire match, gel, etc.. UNDERNEATH the charcoal in the ashpan and light it on fire. Lower the firebox of charcoal over the burning starter, open lid and vents, 10 minutes, READY TO COOK. * We hand make each unit and have for over 60 Years. We still make parts to fix up old hasty's, even the ancient ones, so despite the high initial cost, it is not a disposible unit. Every part can be replaced inside for about $200. Or you can by stainless and have your Hasty Bake outlive YOU! Will have demo video up this spring. All you guys can watch it and criticize me for not looking the part of a BBQ guy. Sorry for the long post. Its not a short answer.

p.s. John, I thought I knew how to spell it, but I like her spelling better! haha

When doing my research before buying my Hasty-BAke...I couldn't find anyone who had a negative thing to say about Hasty-Bake!!!

Too bad you're not located closer--the annual Scratch and Dent sale starts tomorrow at Hasty Bake. I was over there today and was told that one guy drove in all the way from Arizona to take advantage of the deals! They have something like 80 grills that fall into this category they'll be selling. It will be a feeding frenzy there through Saturday.

I ONLY use Hasty Bake lump when I'm using charcoal in all my cookers.


how good are the deals at the factory scratch and dent sale?

We have Scratch and Dent on Labor Day Weekend (end of the summer). 25-50% off units. All scratches and dents are cosmetic, all units still have full warranty. It starts on Thursday.
