I used it as a built in without the cart and it worked out great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MeatLover Several design flaws; some parts poorly made
End of handle was chipped (char-broil will replace it).
Terrible installation experience; nearly impossible to install lid with only 2 people; Char-Broil ought to include rods or large nails that can be slipped through a couple of the screw holes to help keep the lid hinge aligned with the firebox hinge (I used thin screwdrivers); holding the lid for 6-7 min while the screws and nuts are being installed is very difficult for one person, especially if that person is not very tall; the instructions should caution against trying to install the lid restraints AFTER the lid is attached (can't be done; we had to remove all eight screws and start over after installing the restraints).
I had to drill out 3 holes on the iron components in order to get the screws through (some consumers won't have the tools to do this kind of thing), and I had to redrill/reem out the hole in one of the two wooden handle spacers.
The round-head screws that anchor the side trays to the legs should be replaced with counter-sunk, flat head screws (I will probably use a Forstner bit to create flat-bottom recesses in the undersides of the cutting boards so they will fit better into the side trays).
The unit I received has a 1/8" gap at the "roof" of the lid on the right side (allows smoke/heat to escape).
The speed-nuts supplied for the pins that hold the logo plate on the lid are impossible to install; we had to purchase better ones.
Two of the grates are warped and badly cast (char-broil will replace them), and they were coated with what looked and smelled like cooking grease (supposed to be a protective "wax" coating for shipping; very difficult to wash off with "mild soap" as per the instructions.
Instructions p3 mention positioning "butterfly dampers ¼-turn..." The model I purchased does not have butterfly dampers.
Door hinges scrape paint off firebox when the door is opened.
The fire grate (charcoal tray) easily tips forward or backward, and when that happens, the fire grate hanger slips off the firebox at one side or the other. This could be dangerous.
Nothing prevents the hot briquettes from falling off the fire grate at the sides. This significant design flaw will continue to annoy me greatly as I use this grill. Furthermore, the stainless steel bars should have been spaced closer, as small briquettes (small to begin with or small after burning for a few minutes) readily fall through.
Good temperature maintenance.
Glad there's no chimney.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dsfm This is our THIRD CharBroil grill in 42 yrs!
We have not found a large, charcoal grill superior to the CharBroil. This is our third such grill. The others just wore out. The price is very reasonable for the excellent quality and durability of the product. The new one is the best yet!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by zakaget love the grill - but
I have used this same grill for decades, and I love it. The only problem I have had is with the wheels. Seems like the engineers can come up with a better wheel for this unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Billy BBQ This grill was the best addition to my charbroil family the thickness of the metal holds the heat extremely well, the fire last all day, I honestly don't think I could have made a better purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigPapa This is for me, the ultimate charcoal grill!
After researching all available charcoal grills available and price points, I chose the Char Broil CBX 940. It's value for the money has proven to be perfect for me. It's very heavy gauge sheet metal and cast iron components have it weigh in just under 200lbs.
After years of gas grilling I went back to charcoal(old school) and delighted with the grill. Cast iron cooking grates, cast access door for adding charcoal or wood and the adjustable coal grate allows perfect positioning of heat close to or farther from the meat. I believe smoking meats will also be quite possible due to its construction. Well worth the money!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BeeMan Really Heavy Duty!
I had a Char Broil grill for over 20 years that finally rusted out and I could no longer repair it. This one is much heavier built than my last one and I am looking forward to many years of happy char-grilling!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 165grNosler Outstanding quality!
Everything about this grill is heavy duty and built to last. From the solid rubber wheels to the thick cast grill plates. Very easy to maintain a variety of temperatures from smoking to sear-grilling. Simply an exceptional grill that serves multiple cooking styles.
