Topic: Atlanta Stove Works . . . . From: Kristen,
Subject: Re: Atlanta Stove Works
I am trying to find a company named Atlanta Stove Works. A friend of mine bought a charcoal grill from them about 15 years ago and i cant seem to locate them. Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.
Atlanta Stove Works, formerly maker of the "'Cue Cart," a great grill that I must have cooked 100M lbs. on, and other excellent smaller models, such as the Sportsman portable grill of all cast iron. A great little grill. I treasure mine. Alas, the company bit the dust from terminal stupidity of management.
It was absorbed by Birmingham Stove Works which became Birmingham Stove and Range. I met with them about 10 years ago to get them to restore the 'Cue Cart to their line. They were all flamed up about the big sales in wood burning heaters and pooh-poohed the idea of keeping a dumb grill. They made the excellent woodburning heaters under tha names of Atlanta Stove Works, Birmingham Stove Works, Knight Heater and Ashley.
The last number I have for them is 205-252-7800 205-252-7800 . If you talk to them, please pass along a message, "Pox on your house!"
Char-Broil's charcoal burning grill is the closest thing to the 'Cue Cart still available. Even so, their gas grill oriented marketing folk have dropped their biggest charcoal burner. However, I can recommend their current offering as adequate in every way except it is smaller that it should be.
Sorry I can't tell you where to buy a new 'Cue Cart.
