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 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 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 Scottm 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 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer CB940X CHARCOAL GRILL
Pros: Overall good quality. Nice thick gauge steel for the body, rubber casters and superb cast iron grates.
Cons: Design leaves quarter inch gap between near backside of grill cover and the body(picture attached). Therefore is unable to hold high temperature without constantly replenishing coals.
Definitely needs two people to assemble.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BBQnTrue Superb Grill for a Great Price!!!
This beast weighs as much as a gunsafe, absolutely requires 2 people to assemble per manual instructions - especially when screwing in the 50lb lid to hinges. Cooked twice on it thus far, everything turned out flawless. Extremely heavy duty, great heat distribution, leaves excellent grill lines, maintains heat well, best feature is the cast-iron grates. Don't forget to season pit per instructions and clean/season grates after each cook or they will rust. And buy a good cover so it will last and not rust from outside elements. The only complaint I have is the relatively cheap metal coal rack and locking mechanism to lift/lower the coals. I had to bend the lifting rods appx 5 degrees inward so I can shut the lid promptly at any height. Also, during assembly I had accidently pulled up too fast and the rack dropped into the ash box; that is the last thing you would want to do when cooking, you will get ash all over your fine cuisine. The hooks that cradle the bottom coal rack need to be bent inward too so the rack can't drop out. A+ to Home Depot for delivery, said appx 2 weeks, got it within 4 days. I would recommend this grill to anyone and everyone... Propane is for the birds Hank Hill; cooking on coals separates the men from the Bobby's.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by medtech80 Best stick burner I've ever owned!
There is a reason this pit hasn't changed much over the years. It works! I grill burgers, skewers, and steaks. I've slow roasted chops and pork steaks indirectly and I've smoked some of the best brisket I've ever tasted using an indirect "fuse burn". If you're creative enough you can pretty much cook any animal with any method you want (outside of offset smoking, of course). It's large enough to separate the pit into zones with plenty of head room and holds temp very well. Any backyard cook worth his or her salt should own a charbroil 940x in their arsenal.
