Dakota Grills™ started when Wally Sorenson tired of eating burnt steak. Wally and his family were very busy ranchers from Lake Preston, SD. So busy that food on the grill often became charcoal or shoe-leather from neglect. The Sorenson Mantra, "when it's smokin' it's cooking; when it's black it's done," described their meals all-too-well.
Wally and his son Adam, both electrical engineers, searched for a way to create a perfect steak every time. Disappointed by every cooking method and device they tried, Wally and Adam chose to create their own.
The challenge was to come up with a grill that could take care of itself even when no one was around. The meat had to be tender, juicy, and flavorful, even when left unattended for an hour or more. The grill had to be durable, easy to use and easy to clean. After years of experiments, the father and son team created such a device -- an appliance with the potential to revolutionize barbecue.
The result is the Dakota Grill™, a fast, flavorful, and simple way to grill, smoke, barbecue, and bake. The patented design provides a smokeless, greaseless, safe and healthy way to achieve perfection every time. Made in the USA and crafted with pride, all Dakota Grills™ are built to last and are guaranteed for five years or longer.
