  1. Gowe

    Great ProductsMy OLD grill fell apart on Thanksgiving Day and I had to patch it up to roast my Large Chicken… it is a 3 year old Char-Broil that I use a lot.** I purchased this one because the cost of everything is rising , I haven’t assembled and used this yet, I will put it into use when the patch job on the old one fails . Probably in the Spring. I am giving this review based on my use of the product experience I have had over the years. I have always bought Char-Broil.The Price point on this unit is a great value, Its the smaller size because I usually only cook 3 or 4 burgers or a couple chicken breasts on it at one time…. Sometimes I like to cook Fish or Fry chicken in a cast iron skillet and not have the odors in the house So the side burner works well for me. If this one gives me as good a service as the last one , Ill be happy. So for me this is a good deal !!!

    Both burners burn evenly!This grill cooks a little faster than our old one. But it’s great and there is nothing better than hamburgers or steak on the grill. Easy to clean up and use!

  3. allen

    very hard to put together without any instructionscame bent where the box took a hit made the decision to try to bend it instead of sending it back; that part worked out. BUT THERE WERE NO INSTRUCTIONS NO PICTURES NOTHING on line there was nothing of that model. what a job.

    Good deal for priceDecent grill for price. Seems a bit flimsy though. Will take at least 2 hrs and plenty of patience to assemble.

    BBQ AssemblyTakes about three hours to put together, not hard just time consuming. Look at the pictures closely and you will not have a problem. Just the right size for the deck.
