if you put wood chips on the grill does the smoke from them permeate your food for the taste?

Asked by: ibedi
Yes and you don't need to wet them. Just put a small handful at the back of the grill.

Where can I find cooking accessories for the Patio Bistro Grill?

I would like to purchase grilling accessories at Home Depot for instance grill pans, toppers, woodchip box etc... Where can I find similar items?
Asked by: SLG89
There are tons of accessories available for the Patio Bistro at the Char-Broil and Home Depot websites. Please take a look at the hickory wood chips (2784761), the cast iron smoker box (8184804P) and the Patio Bistro Pizza Stone (5956435).

Customer Reviews

Patio Bistro TRU-Infrared Electric Grill in Salsa Red is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 166.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, effective, and compact! We had a CB Bistro electric grill for about four years that I picked up at a big-box-store garden center end of year sale. It was intended as an occasional backup to our, ahem, four different charcoal and gas grills. The original idea was to avoid fires and smoke here in the PNW rainforest during our high forest fire risk times/burn bans. It could be easily wheeled out of our garage, with easy monitoring and access between there and the kitchen. This meant we started using it often during the rainy times of year, under the garage overhang. That led to us using it in the winter months as well. So before long its versatility and ease of use meant it was used not only more than our other grills...soon we were using it more often than our kitchen range! It heats up much faster than our conventional oven and is easier to clean. I loved using the Patio Bistro grill not only as a conventional grill but also with disposable aluminum roasting pans for non-slab-format foods, like stews, or for roasts where I wanted to retain the drippings for sauces, or even for reheating leftovers. When our little black one gave up the ghost after four years of heavy use, we didn't hesitate to replace it. We have seen many online reviews complaining that the users' Patio Bistro grill doesn't heat up enough. We had that problem at first and realized we were using an extension cord that was too small an electron pipeline. My husband replaced it with a herkier one and the grill worked exactly as advertised once enough of those little electrons could race down the cord to make infrared heat. One other thing, we use "wiggle paper" on the grate. This is a corrugated aluminum grill-cover sheet that really cuts down on the amount of grill cleaning needed. We buy those at the big box stores and cut each sheet in half. This grill is a wonderfully designed and thought out tool. We ordered our new one to have it in time to cook the Christmas roast and prawns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built, tuff little grill We've had our grill for over 3 years, use it 2 times per week, and it has performed beautifully. Due to my infrequent cleaning, I've had a couple of grease fires and it continues to work well. It heats up quickly, cooks slower than gas but with few flareups, and holds it's temp well considering it's powered by an electric element. The cooking grid is showing some signs of burning out where I have my chip box (which works well with dry wood chips for smoking). With all this use it's eventually going to wear out so I'm planning to purchase a replacement before they quit making them. I have a charcoal grill I use when cooking out in the open, an electric smoker to smoke meats on the weekends, and this great little grill on my side porch for quick meals all year round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Patio perfect! This electric grill fits our apartment lifestyle perfectly. Plenty of grill space for the two of us (or four), it holds heat and recovers quickly. The dual level grills allow for separate cooking temperature areas, so I can roast potatoes and grill steaks at the same time. No more propane tanks to haul in and out. The drip tray is easy to clean, and there's no mess on the patio. I bought the cover and after two summers the unit still looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had an Electric Patio Bistro For Many Years... Not only have I had one for many years (ceraamic briquettes and now infrared) , I gave one to my parents who also live in a condo that does not allow combustible grilling on their lanais. I recently used a gas BBQ to grill food and found the Charbroil electric grill to retains juices better than the gas grill did - plus the gas grill blackened the poultry!! If you make this purchase, take heed of the recommendations of others (and myself) and get a nylon grill brush and the BBQ cover....makes your grill last longer. And also try to plug it into a 15 amp outdoor socket for the best grilling temperature.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Char Broil Product Grill requires approximately 40 minutes to preheat. Once lid is opened to insert items, the grill never recovers preheat temperature. Average cooking temp throughout process is less than 300 degrees even with maximum temperature. Steaks appear grayish and never sear; grill is so low that it is impossible to produce a medium rare steak. With appropriate chips, it might work as a smoker, but this is not a grill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly awesome grill! This was my first purchase of any type of electric grill. Needless to say this thing totally impresses me, in that it cooks everything perfectly and maintains the juiciness of all meats. Does take a bit long to cook than a gas or charcoal grill, but everything I cook on it is worth the wait! Living in Florida, I can cook year long, and this grill has not let me down. Highly recommend this one. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Electric Grill!!! This is the fourth electric grill I have purchased over the past 10 years, it’s the first Char-Broil. Due to condominium living I am relegated to non gas grills. I had previously purchased 3 other electric grills over the years and was so disappointed by their performance. To my great surprise this Char-Broil grill almost percormans as well as a gas grill. I highly recommend this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit my needs perfectly! I grew up grilling n both gas and charcoal grills. But my new HOA residence would only allow for electric grills. I was hesitant at first, but my desire to cook outdoors was too strong. So, I checked out the Patio Bistro. It's amazing! All my concerns about heat distribution, grilling times, grilling quality went out the door. I wish I'd bought it sooner, but I'm SO glad I did..!
