Hasty-Bake Continental 83 Dual Finish Charcoal Grill

By Max Good

Manufacturer: Hasty-Bake

Founded in Tulsa, OK, by Grant "Hasty" Hastings in 1948, 15 years before the unfortunately named kids' toy and three years before the Weber Kettle were invented, the Hasty-Bake was probably the first home grill with a hood, and it incorporated innovations that are just being rediscovered by other grill makers today.

Their grills are unique and built to last. In fact they offer renovation because so many Hasty-Bakes are passed down from one generation to the next. "We can repair any grill from an original 1948 model to a recent model", boasts their website.

Hasty-Bake offers parts, seasonings and sauces, apparel and various accessories. Sales are from a limited number of independent dealers, Amazon and a few other online stores, and direct.
