Time to fire-up the grill

At some point in time during the dark and dirty and, let's be honest, hairy history of our species, an innovator was born. Tired of eating cold, raw mammoth meat, that enterprising caveman invented fire, and before you can grunt "ugg," he had thrown a piece of meat on it and invented grilling.


We love ourselves a good grilled steak. But sometimes, it's nice to mix it up. And if you're like us, you've wanted to try smoking your choice of dead animal for some time but are leery of making the investment in a dedicated smoker.

Well, we found ourselves a solution, and we loved it so much that we built a crate around it so that you, too, could enjoy the pleasures of smoking without having to drop a few Benjamins on a new toy. The cast-iron smoker box in this crate will quickly become your weapon-of-choice. Just set the smoker box onto the grill as it heats up, soak some of the hickory wood chips we've helpfully provided, and throw them into the box. Your steaks will come out tasting like victory. It's not just for steak, either. For maximum win, try finding some cedar chips and throwing them in next time you grill some seafood, or some mesquite when you grill pork chops. Your palate will thank you.

Extra Flavors & Snacks

We included some of our favorite rubs, steak and barbecue sauces to take your smoking habit to the next level. And since being grill-master is an arduous, thankless job that involves staring at food for ages before being able to eat it, we included some snacks to keep your stomach happy and quiet and your mind focused on the task at hand.

So throw a steak on the fire, and crack a beer in honor of your caveman forefathers. After all, you may not have invented grilling, but you're damn sure on your way to perfecting it

      My son LOVED it!

      I ordered this as a birthday present for my USAF son stationed across the country... and who loves all things BBQ. I added the "diabolical duct tape" packaging because our family does things like that. I told him he had to have someone video the opening for me. He thought the duct tape was the "thing" only to see the crate inside. Not one to mess around, he skipped the crowbar and went out to the garage and grabbed a sledge.:-) He loved the packaging, and loved the contents- he plans to use the crate in the grill, too. I can't wait to order another great gift from Man Crates!

      I ordered this product for Christmas for my extremely difficult brother. We haven't even opened it yet but I was amazed at how fast I got the product! It came a day after I ordered it and I opened the box and it has the note I chose to put in the box along with the little crowbar. Great looking product so far and I'm super excited for him to open it! Great product for the difficult guy in your life!

      For my dad

      My dad has always loved grilling so I got this for him for his birthday and he absolutely loved it. He said the wood chips were the best he's ever used but can't seem to find that brand anywhere. I will be buying another man crate for my dad very soon. Best product out there!

      Cool Idea

      I bought the ManCrate for my husband for Valentine's Day and although he's not the typical manly man he did serve so I assumed he would like it. Not the reaction that I would have liked to receive but he pretended to like it (he is very frugal so $64 for the contents I think were what did it wrong for him). He kept it on the counter until now (May) and within five minutes of placing it on the heat it cracked which is really disappointing because the smoker's the central idea for this crate. I really like the idea...there are tons of mancrates on here for a bigger price that offer more bang for the buck. I guess it was my fault.


      Hi Camilla,

      So sorry to hear your smoker box cracked when your tried to use it! We'd be happy to send out a replacement for you! Give us a call at 866-902-7260 or email us at, we'll make it right, promise!

      Great Man-Gift

      I sent this to my Dad for Christmas and watched over FaceTime while he opened it. That was half the fun! I really like the marketing and "packaging." Apparently he isn't a huge fan of corn nuts, but the beer nuts were so good even Mom couldn't resist. They've already tried the poultry seasoning with good reviews. Dad says he'll try out the smoker box in the summer and I'm hoping it and the rest will have good reviews from them also! Thanks for a great man-gift idea. I will be buying more from you in the future!

      Hickory Grilling Crate

      Novel idea! My husband received this for x-mas from his daughter and after watching him open it, I know he will get another. What fun ( did require an additional hammer). He loved it!

      He loved it

      Got this for my stepdad for Christmas. He's tough to buy for. Other than needing to pull out the hammer to assist with the smaller than imagined crowbar, it was great!

      Absolutely the most awesome gift to get the "Grill Master"

    10. 12/16/2015 Dave Hickory Grilling Crate 5

      Great for a gift and sent with the quickness!

      I sent this to my folks up in CT.. received the package almost overnight. Was a huge hit... especially for those grillers on your gift list! They couldn't stop talking about how awesome the box was that it came in. Definitely a happy customer!!

      Great Customer Service

      I received an email saying that my package was delivered, but when I went outside the package wasn't there. I was so worried that I would not be able to get a new package in time for Christmas. I contacted customer service and they sent me the same package with no charge. Three days later, the package was on my doorstep. The package arrived yesterday and I can't wait for my dad to open it for Christmas!

      Fun and nice items inside

      Got this for my Dad's 62nd Birthday. He needed a hammer, but he had a lot of fun getting it open. He ate the snacks right away and is excited to use the smoke tray. Seems to be good quality things inside. If I had to say a negative, would just be a little pricey-but if you want unique, can't beat this. Maybe they will make crates for women too, as my wife would love the bacon one, lol
