After visiting Japan, lifelong griller and YAK founder David Sypniewski fell in love with the social grilling aspect of yakitori. After a year of research and a hit Indiegogo campaign, YAK Grills was launched in late 2020. Today, the whole world is invited to gather around the grill. Learn more about our story.
Gone are the days when watching the grill meant separating yourself from the action. The YAK grill helps the whole party get in on the grill out, so no guest is left behind.
The classics will always be classic. But the YAK grill makes finding a new family favorite easy yet adventurous. Just fire up the coals, gather around the grill, and try something different. Browse our recipes.
Cooking is all about timing. Except when it isn’t. The YAK grill keeps the party together all the while so there’s no rush to get things prepped or plated. Sit back. Relax. And enjoy the moments.
WHY CHARCOAL MATTERS
Our ancestors got it right when they chose to cook over hot coals. And let’s assume that they weren’t in a hurry. Charcoal grilling can add warmth, aromas, and comfort to any gathering.
Beyond heat, charcoal adds a world of flavor to whatever you put on the grill. It doesn’t take a discerning palate to taste the difference. When you grill with a YAK, you’re making charcoal an active ingredient. Learn more.
YAK Grills are designed to withstand extreme heat and the elements. We stand by the quality of our grills and pride ourselves on putting griller satisfaction first, always. That’s why every grill comes with a standard 5-year warranty, and we offer financing with 0% interest.
Which griller type are you?
You’re more than a griller. You’re a grill master. You know the in’s and outs of your YAK grill and you’re also an expert at using charcoal to grill anything to perfection. Your friends and family know that if they’re grilling, you’re their go-to guest.
For you, trying new things is part of the overall cooking experience. Whether you’re in the kitchen and out on the patio, you’re always on the hunt for fresh flavors, the latest recipes, and new discoveries. Your YAK grill is the perfect tool for trying your hand at something different.
A gathering is only as successful as the food being served. And for you, the YAK grill makes meal prep as memorable as the meal itself. Not only do you ensure that no guest leaves hungry, but you also leave a lasting impression.
Nowhere is it written that grill outs require a specific time or place. Your YAK grill helps you fire up a meal wherever and whenever it feels right. Maybe it’s a simple burger night in the backyard. Or, you feel like grilled fruit over ice cream would be the perfect campsite treat. YAK makes anything possible.
