Does Char-Broil American Gourmet 700 Series Charcoal Grill with Offset Firebox inspect and test its products before shipping to consumers? Why so many flaws with respect to welding, heat escape flimsy material, paint etc?

Answer: 
I think QC is limited to making sure that the Char-Broil sticker adhesive placed on the top of the grill is of a significant chemical composition that it is impossible to remove without fire and a grinder.
The sticker is extremely high quality, everything else not so much.

Answer: 
Quality control seemed good to me but a few defects in the r&d dept such as the paint burning off. The gaps I had where smoker box meets main grill will happen due to heat so not really a problem there. All welding on my unit seems in good shape. I didn't find the material flimsy necessarily. Its no cast iron for sure but id say its adequate.

Answer: 
My 700 series was shipped without blemish. Following the directions regarding applying a coat of cooking oil on the entire cooking area and burning it off with a long slow burn is the key. After 11 hours of smoking meat my 700 still looks like it did when it arrived.

Answer: 
I believe the inspection process is good, as respect to heat loss it was minemal. Some of the welds were a little sloppy. Otherwise the only thing I could gripe about was the packaging to prevent damage and the mickey mouse temp guage. All in all a good buy for the money!

Hi DaGr8One,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
Yes, you can cook with charcoal in the main chamber as well as in the side box.
There are enough cooking grates to allow you to cook directly over fire in both chambers simultaneously.
Thank you for asking,
-Travis

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 173 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My New Smoker Simple to understand instructions, easy to assemble, good looking upon assembly. Cured for 4 hours the next day. The day after that, smoked a beef brisket. (5 hours at 270 or so), wrapped and cooked on the smoker for another 3 hours. Came out excellent. Bit of advice to minimize cleanup time, line bottom of cooking chamber with aluminum foil. Only negative that I see is that there is quite a bit of leakage of the smoke. I will spend a little time sealing up cracks and putting in an oven sealing strip around the door before the next cook. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big Charcoal Grill This grill is for our remote control airplane club. The chief really loves the large cooking area. It is almost twice the size of our old one. We fed over 100 people at our last event. November 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by awesomeness this summer I searched and searched all last year for a grill that I could enjoy. Some how I ran across this grill on homedepot.com and loved the specifications on it. Similar grills with the same specs run about 178+tax but i got this grill for 127.00. Its huge and just what I wanted. Putting it together was so freaking easy its almost scary. I would suggest doing a few modifications to it if youre a big time smoker/griller like myself. I ordered some high temp silicone to close up my gaps and its awesome. When I originally called the online store they were out of stock and weren't sure if they would receive anymore, but they did everything they could to help me get this grill. They even called charbroil to see if they were going to send more and when if they were. The customer service was outstanding. This grill is by far the best for the price. The material is better than the brinkman grill. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!!! June 24, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by parts missing company would not send without a $4.95 shipping charge! not a happy customer! Charbroil company made me register the product first which was a bit of a magical with scanning proof of purchase and then wouldn't replace the missing bolts and hex nuts without a $4.95 shipping charge. Two bolts and nuts don't cost $5 ?!?! July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good entry level smoker I gave this unit an overall rating of five stars, because with minimal modifications it is a very useful smoker. Out of the box it is a great grill, but the quality of the smoker design is poor at best. The unit is difficult to maintain temperature, and it leaks smoke from everywhere. Additionally, the cheap steel bends with heat. With that said, if you seal the unit with high temperature silicone (food safe RTV) and some sort of high temperature rope, you can resolve the smoke leaks. To resolve the uneven temperatures across the unit I cut a disposable deep pan in half to use as a heat deflector, and then I used disposable cookie sheets to direct the smoke throughout the unit. The last modification I made was to lower the chimney using a three inch dryer vent. The end result is a unit that is a great grill, and the best value smoker you can get for the money. If you are looking for a smoker instead of a grill, you should get an upright or an electric upright. Their temperature is easier to maintain, and they are easier to smoke on. However, if you want a grill and a smoker, this one is great with a few modifications. April 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Single Mom Dream Grilling The size of this grill is just perfect for me. I can BBQ a little or a lot and it cooks better and faster than the in doors oven. It was so convenient to have free shipping to get this grill home when you only have a car. Simple and quick transaction. April 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Large for family events Great product for a big family like mines, we all enjoy it very much. June 24, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mad about this grill when this product got to my house i was super excited, i have been in the market for a grill of this type for a while and while i am fully aware that this grill is on the lower end of the quality price spectrum i did not expect the problems that i got with it. first off, it arrived damaged, i did not make a big deal out of this because the damage was aesthetic and did not reduce functionality, so i ignored it and continued. second, the heat in the smoker burned the paint off the outside of the smoker fire chamber the second time it was used. third, during the same use the heat also popped the weld on the lid to the smoker chamber. i am very disappointed in this grill and am contacting char-broil about it. the welds were pathetic and could have been done better by my 7 year old son and the fire i had in the chamber was well within what should have been acceptable limits. i must sadly not recommend this grill April 2, 2013
