Rated 5 out of 5Â by WeekendWarriorThe3rd This grill is awesome.
This grill is awesome. It really does keep meat juicer than other grills! So far I have cooked hamburgers (fresh and frozen), chicken drum sticks, chicken breasts, hot dogs, steaks, pork chops and a whole chicken. All were tender and juicy without the meat being undercooked or overcooked. I even got the Char-broil rotisserie and cooked a 4.5 lb chicken which came out moist and tender 18 min/lb like the directions say. Just had 10 people over for BBQ pork chops â they always used to come out dry on old grills but on the Tru-infrared they were spectacular (only 7 minutes a side.) Even my wife is using it and she hated the way the old grill cooked.
Now this grill is made out of ferrous metals so donât expect it to last forever (even the âstainlessâ exterior is a magnetic alloy). I keep it covered at all times when not in use and doused the insides with lots of high-temp veggie oil spray. Some of the grates wobble and the infra-red âtubâ got a little warp, but this does not affect the cooking. This grill does not have a front âlipâ so some splatter may drip on the front panel. Also had to add extra shims to the rotisserie brackets as they could not clear the lid with the supplied spacing washers. Make sure you are quite handy if you assemble yourself, it took me a whole afternoon! Also, be sure to never clean any part of this with a metal brush, metal scraper or pot scrubber as it will scratch the ferrous metal grates and insides and cause rust. Do gently clean out the âtubâ at least every 2 uses or grease will build up. Propane hose was a bit short so tank valve must face the right side of grill. Hoping to get at least 2 season out of this. People see it and think it costs 3 times as much. Please keep making them âcause I am never going back to the âWâ kind of grill again.

I bought this grill three years ago and the grill works perfect. The only thing i needed to change was the batteries on the igniter.
The steaks this grill produces are better that any other steakhouse restaurant. It does take time to heat the surface but as with any other food the longer it takes the better it tastes.
No flare ups!! I keep recommending this grill to all my buddies.
I grill steaks every week and they are always perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DissappointedinWV Good grill.... But ....
PROS: Love the way this grill cooks. Truly without flare ups, and meats are more juicy for sure.
CONS: Start wires loose, always have to jiggle the wires to start the burners. Black Lettering and markings around the controls quickly wear off - and are gone. This is on a grill kept under a porch!
Now 18 months later - no markings for the controls. I can work the grill (from memory), but anyone else would be guessing. My older model had a thermometer on the hood. After 18 months it stopped working, when cold it reads 450, and starts going from up there when turned on. Thermometer temps are now off by 450 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Me44 A very cool and reliable grill!!!
This Grill is exactly what i was looking for. It is easy to maintain, i like the pan where all the grill dirt falls in which is easy to clean. The heat gets spread great and is easy to control. This was the right choice for our purpose. Absolutley a recommendation from me! Well done!

Bought the Char Broil grill and it looked like it had been unused, but kind of dirty. After I got it home, I noticed some rusting on 2 of the 3 grills and also a little on the trough. After a call to Char Broil, they sent new replacements, without charge and free shipping! Grill cooks great. After a couple of times I used it, the grill wouldn't get hot, and only 2 of the burners would work at a time. From reading other posts here, I thought it was the safety feature. After I shut off the gas, disconnected the tank, and reconnected, which fixed the problem. Recommend this grill, and highly recommend Char Broil and Home Depot
