Larger than expected, sturdy. I like that the carry handle is removable. With the ears it accommodates pots, skillets, etc. up to 15" diameter, and has an 8" x 8" grilling surface. Overall dimensions 12" x 12" x 11" tall. Holds about half a chimney of lump charcoal. Drafts well thanks to a raised coal grate - easy to empty and clean. Though not 100% historically accurate, it is certainly 100% incredibly useful.
