After owning this grill for 4 years, and keeping it covered, the internals completely just rotted away. Water never entered the grill, so I don't know what kind of materials they use to produce this grill, but it is a complete waste of money. Even the "drip hoods" that keep food grease off of the burners just fell apart like dust.... they literally look like they've been underground since the jurassic era, and Charbroil wants over $100 to replace the four of them. Garbage.

After a year the thermometer stopped working. After 3 years the grates were rusted through and I replaced them, it only took a little over 2 years for the replacement grates to rust out. The grill has been covered and protected the whole time. My of the internal parts rusted out in 2 years and I replaced them. I have rebuilt the grill twice.
I really like the grill but the materials it is made out of are not the best.
I'm really debated on to re build it again but the parts cost close to what a new grill would be. Its lasted almost 6 years, if it had better materials it would last much longer.

I have owned this grill for 4 years. It is covered when not in use. The grates rusted away. The drip pan rusted so much that it finally just fell off. About a year after buying it the thermometer quit working. This grill is poorly made and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Here's to hoping the Brinkman grill I bought last week lasts a lot longer than this heap of rusted metal.

I got this grill about 7 years ago and it has been great. The ignition system still works, all the parts are still attached and overall functioning pretty well. I have had similar problems as others had described there is some rust on the grates, the burners are just starting to rust through, I replaced the heat shields above the burners once but those things get exposed to a lot of heat that weakens the metal. I live in Washington state, I keep the grill outside and uncovered believe it or not it will last a lot longer uncovered. Those covers don't keep 100% of the moisture out but they are very good at trapping it in. $250 for 7 years of use, I feel that I got my money's worth.

I bought this grill 4 years ago and it was kept with a cover in the garage during winter time. Second year it started to get rusted and ignition stopped working. Third year one half of the burners did not work and on the fourth year both burners and flame tamers totally melted away. To replace all parts
it would cost me almost $300.00 and I am not about to spend another penny on this garbage. And it was not cheap to invest $$$ that really lasted one year.
