Answer: 
I spoke with a Char Broil QA engineer. He said the wood is a species called Cunninghamia. He said it does look like yellow pine but definitely is not. They source the wood from China, where the grill is manufactured. Based on what he said and what I read, it seems to be a decent piece of wood. So, I stand corrected on my assessment of the wood.

This gentleman I spoke with at CB was great. He patiently addressed every issue I felt the grill had, candidly explained the contraints CB is under in today's manufacturing world, etc. and offered lots of tips and advice for using the grill (he has an earlier model). The gap is part of the design, and is a result of CB addressing a previous issue with the grill.
After our conversation I realized a few things. One, CB customer support is up there with the best of them. That goes a long way with me. Two, there is no better charcoal grill for the money, period. Three, I need to just shut up, appreciate this beast, and keep grilling. Read Less

Answer: 
Mine came with cheap yellow pine cutting boards. They look nothing like the photo, are very soft and not considered a good choice for cutting boards. According to an exchange I had with Char Broil CS, the wood can vary but they specify only hardwood. Considering mine shipped directly from their warehouse, I doubt that claim.

Answer: 
The wood is what I'd term as butcher block & is of very high quality. Each plank has a ridge along the edges to catch potential spills.
I'm so impressed with the wood that I'm going to season it with several coats of mineral oil to keep it not only looking nice, but germ-free & mold-free.

Answer: 
No, if you have it delivered, you assemble it yourself. You should ask your local store if they offer assembly in store or if you would like to buy a display, those come already assembled (as long as you have a way to take it home assembled).

Answer: 
No, the grill requires assembly. The instructions, however, are very easy to understand and the hardware clearly labeled. I assembled the entire grill in about an hour. The only step that I found it necessary to have assistance (my wife helped) was the installation of the lid.

Classic Full-Size Charcoal Grill is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from A Great Box I used it as a built in without the cart and it worked out great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Several design flaws; some parts poorly made The cons: 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. The pros: Good temperature maintenance. Glad there's no chimney.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality, versatile bbq pit We owned one of these years ago. After many years of use it had to be retired. We then bought an offset smoker/grill to replace but it never was easy to control temperature, etc. with the offset and we never liked it as well as the old Char-broil. The Char-Broil is very heavy duty & durable. Temperature control is very good. The adjustable charcoal grates can be raised & lowered which is a big help. The set up is a little bit of a hassle but be sure to follow the instructions concerning the seasoning of the cast iron cooking grates and keep the ash tray cleaned after each use: this will help prevent rusting (applies to any pit). This is a grill and NOT a smoker although indirect cooking is easy with this pit. I would recommend this grill. It can put out some great grub!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Engineering problems Overall the grill will be as good as the old model after I modify it. Casters that came with unit were not heavy enough for its weight. I installed another pair of large wheels. Unit doesn't draft well, air circulation is at the back of the box, consumes to much charcoal to fast. Fire grate does not cover enough of the area under the grates. Old fire box design was far superior. I extend to have a fire grate made like the old design. I am going to seal the cover to cooker with a gasket and install adjustable air vents to control the fire. I had my original CB940 for almost 15 years and it was great unit. With this units heavy metal construction, and the modifications I plan to make it should cook well and last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gift ever! I purchased this grill as a Father's Day gift for my husband and he can't stop telling people about his new toy! The grill is made with great material. It is heavy and very stable. The two cutting boards that go on either side of the grill are beautiful. Once they've been rubbed with mineral oil for a week the beautiful grain of the wood is more visible. The cast iron grates are awesome because they give steaks that awesome pattern found in many steak houses. The grill keeps its temperature very well, too! The fact that one can add coal without having to uncover the entire grill is great when slow cooking. I would definitely recommend this grill to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Charcoal Grill Ever--- This is my second 940. My first lasted 18 years and I abused it. This one is better than my first one. It's easy to cook on and I use it to grill and smoke. This past weekend I cooked a pork shoulder for 11 hours on Saturday and hamburgers on Sunday. It is easy to access and control the fire and easy to clean up. It has outstanding quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the charcoal grill of my dreams! I previously owned the Char-Broil Santa Fe model, which I considered to be the best that I've owned. I used it for years until the bottom wore through. When I learned about the CB940X model, which is much stronger & sturdier, I was thrilled & had to have it. No other grill has cooked to my satisfaction than the Char-Broil brand. I've owned a propane grill, a Weber, & a Brinkmann propane/charcoal combo, but none compared to Char-Broil. I love the sturdy cast-iron grating, the very sturdy ash-catch tray, the fact that the coals can be lifted up or down, but I especially love the front door that allows you to add more charcoal during cooking. If you like the taste of charcoal-cooked barbecue, you would absolutely be happy with the CB940X.
