On longer stays we always grill, since we're so close form home I bring all of the utensils etc. with me. I've used the grills at OKW many times and also at SSR! Thanks for the info on the other resorts!

as far as those CM's who didn't know about the grills, they are kind of tucked away, out of sight, plus most people would expect to see a bigger type of gas grill!

It's nice to see your vigilence paid off!

Thanks for the updates, fellow DVC grill lovers! I've updated the main post.

I'm currently at OKW, and the nearest quiet pool has two grills. I haven't checked near the main pool, but I suspect they're only near the quiet pools.

At VWL, I walked up and down the edge of the woods where we found the one grill, and didn't see any sign of a second one. We'll be back there in a couple weeks, so I'll check again just to make sure.

grills

We stayed at the Beach Club Villas two weeks ago for the first time. Didn't get that DVC feeling at all. The front desk did not know where the grills were! They told us that the store sold charcoal, but the store manager said that they have never sold charcoal. And as for the bbq utensils we have used at Kidani and SSR, they didn't know what we were talking about. Everytime we asked a DVC question we would get that "deer in the headlights" look. The "Welcome Home" didn't seem sincere.

You need to provide your own charcoal (which the resort stores sell).

To avoid confusion at SSR, it might be more appropriate to say there are charcoal grills & picnic enclosures at the Congress Park and Grandstand quiet pools, and a charcoal grill at each Tree House Villa.

Even though your statement is technically correct because the Paddock pool can be classified as a themed pool now, many still think of it as a quiet pool. There's no BBQ in the Paddock. The grills and playground were taken out when the pool was expanded.

We were told by the Beach Club marketplace manager that they have never sold charcoal, but then maybe she knew as little as the front desk

There is no grill at the main themed pool by the Hospitality House. Grills are located only at the three quiet pools at OKW.

This is great! I don't suppose you can add a grilling with charcoal 101 for folk like me who've only grilled with gas grills and have only known folks with gas grills.

My exDH tried it once and the food took too long to cook and came out tasting like lighter fluid. I'd like to give it a try on my own.

How clean are the grills? Do you clean them prior to use....if so with what?

The grills are cleaned nightly by the maintenance staff. We grilled at about 7pm on our first night, and by 9am the next morning it had already been cleaned.

I know that some people have recommended bringing your own cleaning products, etc. We did not do this, and it was fine. I would say that the grills are moderately clean; if you are a "clean freak," you might want to bring your own cleaning products to be extra safe.

Surprisingly clean! The first time I expected to see your typical greasy, nasty, public park grill, but not so!

I still scrape the heck out of it, just like at home!
