Royal Crown Cola Barbecue Grill (Found in a Box of my Dad's Cleaning out my Grandma's Barn)

My dad, Grandma, and I spent all weekend cleaning out the back barn at her house to get rid of junk and sort through things while also making room for cars and furniture since my dad is moving shortly due to his new Job. I found a bunch of things that I liked while we were cleaning it out this weekend but the highlight is most definitely this RC Cola Barbecue Grill! The story goes that my dad bought this a number of years ago at a flea market or yardsale (he can't remember for sure) for about $5. What a deal that was because I think this is the second coolest grill I have ever seen! My favorite still remains the ol' Ball-B-Cue that Mr. Modtomic kindly pointed out to me. I really do love this little grill though. My dad says he may give it to me someday but I have my fingers crossed that he will let me bring it down to my apartment when I get one soon. This will be perfect for a few hot dogs or burgers for me and my girlfriend! I'm pretty excited to use it! It was a bit dirty when we pulled it out of the box it was in but I cleaned it up as best as I could and it looks super cool. I have never seen one anywhere else before so I have no Idea what it  is worth. Hit the Jump for more pics!

This grill is super neat-o! I love it! The top of it looks like a bottle cap and it is all aluminum except for the grill rack. This thing is in really great condition too and I have no idea how old it is or where it came from. My dad suspects it was probably a promotional item and I agree that that is probably what it was. 


It has been used before and I cleaned it up as best as I could with a Brillo pad. It still looks really good... good enough to eat off of! Haha I crack myself up sometimes :P It says there on the bottom that it was made by Balcar Carrollton Texas. I just found this similar Pepsi Grill that is currently for sale for $245! Even though this isn't a Pepsi one, I think this one is still rather valuable. I still would probably cook off of it though. If I have it why not use it? Then Again I may just display it somewhere whenever I find me a Ball-B-Cue!


It's hard to say this thing isn't cool and if you think it isn't cool, you better check your pulse. I would love to use this thing all the time and I think this would be great for some apartment cookouts with the girlfriend! I also love the instructions on the inside of the lid. Pretty straightforward and easy.



  1. Oh dude! Your Pops HAS to let ya have it! Who's gonna appreciate it more than you? That is a great grill. I'd be happy to ad that to my collection! It looks like it would work great too. Aluminum reflects heat instead of transferring it like steel. I remember Royal Crown cola too. I think you can still find it, not sure. It'd be great to grill up some burgers and dogs on the grill with a bucket of RCs in ice next to it.

  2. I know right! I would totally use this thing all the time! and since it won't rust like steel does, I think it will last a long time! That means lots of hot dogs and burgers for me and the girlfriend! This would be great for some summer cookouts with the Melmac and a couple of RC colas! How awesome would that be! :D

  12. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at
    options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could
    point me in the direction of a good platform.

  13. I've been browsing on-line greater than three hours lately,
    yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like
    yours. It's pretty worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers
    made just right content as you did, the web will be much more
    helpful than ever before.
