Pros

There is a lot of good features built in this charcoal grill. There are vents around the top of the ash cannister that can be easily adjusted open or closed to adjust the air flow to the charcoal. There is a hood that is porcelain coated and can hang on the side of the stok grill. There is a charcoal basket for loading your charcoal and for ease of lighting. When the charcoal is ready for cooking the basket can be removed. The charcoal briquettes will move across the grate when the basket is removed.

There is a special tool for the stok grill insert.For removal of the center insert which is constructed of cast iron. When the center insert is removed the charcoal basket is easily removed. There is a pizza stone insert which can be installed by the special tool. The stone promotes even cooking by spreading the heat across the stone,giving an even cooking surface. No under cooked places on your pizza. There are other stok inserts available at extra cost.

The temperature gauge on the hood gives the temperature of the air inside the grill. You would need a separate heat gauge for the inside of the food as the air temp and the food temp are different. To assemble the grill after purchase,you will need a phillips screw driver and a crescent wrench. There is an ash cannister to catch the ash from the fire. One good thing: the stok  tower has a paper basket that fits in the ash cannister that you can crumple up newspaper.Then place the grate and charcoal basket in grill. Add charcoal,light newspaper. Wait until charcoal is ready to cook with. Use the insert removal tool to remove the charcoal basket. With this grill you would need an oven mitt to keep your hands from getting burned.

Cons

At this time there are 43 customer reviews of the stok scc0140mx tower charcoal grill. The biggest complaints were after owning the grill for 2 years. I wonder about some of the reviews as two years before complaining? To me,it looks like two people need to put this grill together as it has many small parts. I looked at the owners manual and it has complete instructions to assemble. The tower grill has many small parts and is a little difficult to put together.

Conclusion

The porcelain-coated cast iron grate allows for easy cleanup after cooking and long grill life. The stok is a  kettle grill design.
