This grill sounded like a great value for the money, but definitely is not worth it. The cooking surface has very uneven heat distribution, and there is a huge gap in the back of the lid, so the heat escapes even when the lid is closed. On top of that, after only 5 months of light use, the regulator knob on one of the burners melted off and began shooting flames out of the front of the grill, rendering it completely useless (see attached picture). Char Broil customer service ignored many emails and phone calls, so needless to say I won't be buying another one.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by TimT Terrible Grill....Buy a Weber for $399
I have had this grill for 3 years. The bottom is completely rusted out. The burners are shot. The heat tents are rusted through. I paid $369 for this grill. I just purchased a Weber Genesis for $799. Go to a store and feel the difference. The Weber will last longer than 5 of these grills. If you don't want to shell out $800, then go for the Weber Spirit. At only $399, it is WELL WORTH THE $30 price difference. You will also end up with more cooking area. Yes, this grill is huge. But when the only place that gets hot enough to grill is the back 6-8 inches of the grill....it is very unusable. The Weber will give you even heat over the entire cooking area. I can't sing the praises of Weber enough in this review. Buy a Weber and you'll laugh at people who own a Char-Broil grill.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Bigryry Do not buy
I have owned this for 3 years and everything is rotten. Garage stored, first the wheels rusted out, literally fell off while moving it to the garage. Cooking area is big but the heat is extremely uneven and only heats near the back, anything in the front never cooks. The side burner worked great. Will be replacing this spring. To much to spend on a grill to replace every 3 years. Assembly was also a pain.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Sandlapper It's an alright grill if you know what you're buying
I own a rental company and we've rented this grill over the past 3 years. It's an ok grill but in the latter part of 2012 Charbroil changed the way the caster feet are attached. It's always been plastic inserts but now they went to a 'screw-in' type caster foot against 'plastic inserts and that doesn't work well for a grill that weighs 150 lbs. I started selling grills (all good name brands) back in the late '80's so I'm well aware of what is quality and what isn't.
I've seen other comments on here from some folks that I'd like to address. One comment was about a 'gap' in the back of the grill. That gap is there so the grill can 'breathe'...ALL gas grills have that otherwise the grill wouldn't be able to stay lit..think..flames take Oxygen to burn and burns off Co2, and if the Co2 can't escape, it'll just smother itself out.
Many posts talk about the 'quality' of the grill'. Folks, please, it's a $350 grill, it's huge, it weighs a ton, if you're really looking for quality then look Ducane, Tec, or Weber. You won't find huge grills like this but you'll find good quality grills. You get what you pay for and you should shop savvy.
I buy grills here and another home improvement store every time they go on sale because I'm not going to pay full price for something I know in just 12 weeks of renting them in my seasonal business they'll be ready for the scrap yard. It is what it is and you get what you pay for. If you buy products nowadays without thoroughly researching what you're buying before you have a chance to even see it, then there's an old saying....caveat emptor....latin for 'buyer beware'...
