Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chris So far great BBQ, quality seems good, room for improvement in a couple of areas
The housing for both gas and charcoal are solid. My biggest complaint would be the inability to absolutely control ventilation on the charcoal side. The unit comes with the openings and drill holes for the rotisserie attachment without any way to plug or seal them when not in use. For the gas side this is not an issue, but it makes smothering the charcoal side and controlling the heat a little more difficult than if one was using something like a traditional Webber. Other then that, the unit has been a great addition to this point. The ceramic coated cooking surface definitely feels like it is made to last longer than previous BBQ's I've owned in the past.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hoss A awesome Grill/Smoker
We purchased this Charbroil to replace and upgrade from our previous Charbroil "Big Easy" After approx 10 yrs of use I burnt the cooking elements in half and being from Texas I wanted to be able to smoke Briskets as well as have a fast cooking grill for those lazy days.The assembly took about 3 hrs with very easy instructions.The height is prefect for me with a bad back. My friends all love the appearance,quality and taste of the food from this Grill. I would recommend this Grill/Smoker to anyone that loves to cook outside any time of the year. Thank You Charbroil for another super Grill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RubberDuck LOVE IT
Only used it a few times so far. Set up was easy just took a while. I am disabled with limited arm use and between me and a friend and a couple more to do lifting we got it done in 3 hours taking our good old time. Stove works great the gas side heats up very quick and cools down quick. The charcoal side (thats my side LoL) was super easy to use and so simple to clean. To clean it just get a piece of card board and shovel it over the pan in back some goes thru the holes some goes over the top. After that pull out the tray and dump so simple. The adjustable height is great puts out great heat. Love how deep the charcoal pan goes used it on a windy day no problem. Dam that sucker gets hot like over 800 degrees on the thermometer while heating the coals. Love the fire box door just open it and see how far along your coals are and add wood and coal if needed without being burnt playing over the flame. Plenty of space cooked baby back ribs hamburger sausage veggies beans on the side hot dogs just about everything on Memorial day and there was still room for more. Easily feeds over 15 people or just 2 if you want. Makes good pasta Roni to on the side burner. Use 1 burner or all 3 and charcoal how ever you want. Love the low profile lids to. Smokes food great on the coal side with charcoal then add some wood to smoke when ready to cook. I will add more at the end of summer maybe the middle if I am not to busy eating.
Oh yeah important thing a cover from amazon this one (Patio Armor SF40274 80-Inch Premium Mega X-Large Grill Cover, Black) FITS LIKE A GLOVE. Cheap under 55 bucks great cover. Have any questions just ask. Here is some pics to.
The wheels are fine no problems moving it on asphalt. Very sturdy material everything was there no missing or broken parts. Just love it.
One more thing this replaces the old char broil gas and charcoal combo that was under one lid that we bought back in 2003 that lasted 10 years. This one I hope last at least 15 years. It is constructed that good just have to keep up the maintenance on it and it should last a very long time. When I bought mine I didn't find it in any store to look at it I just went by Char Broils reputation and reviews and not disappointed. Well wort the money!!!
Good Luck All

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrilMaster Great investment!
Easy to assemble, but you definitely need at least one other person. I was able to do it alone, but it took longer than expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sarah great size for a dual gas and charcoal unit!
loved using site to store without paying shipping; there are very few combination gas/charcoal grills I could find in the Omaha area in stores and shipping on such a HEAVY item would have been monstrous. Went to Home Depot less than a mile from my house, two capable employees loaded it in the car, and my husband and 8 year old son had it up and running in 2 hours. Beautiful!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan OConnor Good Idea/Poor Quality
We have owned this grill for about a year and half. We always clean and cover the grill when not in use. On the gas side, the bottom head shield is rusted through, the burner tents are showing excessive rust. On the charcoal side, the charcoal pan needs replacing. The front caster wheels broke off last summer. We use the grill 2-3 times per week. The grill cooks food very well, and it's relatively easy to clean. We really expected better quality from Char-Broil for the price of this grill. This is the second Char-Broil grill we've owned and we won't be purchasing another.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by doesntmatter Propane Only! Natural gas can't be used!
Nowhere does not say on box that it's propane only and even worse there is no conversion kit for natural gas. Even Menards sales people didn't know it's propane only. What a waste of time putting it together.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Baird Worst money ever spent
We bought this grill from a local store about a year Ago, and it is already completely rusted out. We have tried to move the grill and the wheels broke off when doing so. Very unhappy with this grill. Will not be recommending this purchase. We do alot of grilling and thought this would work great, guess we were wrong. the grease pan we pulled out just fell apart and ruined our deck. Its all stained from the grease. Not very happy about this. I guess I expected more than I got.
