          Bought my first one ten years ago at half price. Got lots of use smoking meats and baking bread and taking camping. Made leg extensions from PVC and conduit couplers and bought a stainless heat diffuser. Like a dummy, I didn't buy the cover and the bottom rusted out. SO.... I waited until I got a deal of the day from HD and got it for 100. And bought the cover this time... Oh if you bake bread, get a small pizza stone and use a infrared laser thermometer to check the stone. Works great in summer keeping house cool.Also close vents when finished to re-use remaining charcoal. also also green egg charcoal works best.

          Love it! Works great. Nice size for small households. Would definitely recommend the metal conduit hack to raise it to a comfortable level.

          Poor Quality Control + Worse Customer Service
          Considering just returning it at this point. I didn't get any farther than opening the box & taking out the lid before I noticed a black, sticky tar-like substance on my hand, coming from a spot on the lid where there was a bubble in the outer metal and something was oozing through it. It took three days and a second follow-up message to Char-Griller customer service to even get a response, and it's now been a week after that and a replacement part hasn't even shipped.

            Garbage Customer Support
            My order arrived with a shattered cooking grill. Not sure how that even happens since it's metal but it did. CharGriller Customer service is via horrible online portal with poor response, confusing menus, and product codes. They go out of their way to avoid doing actual customer service. Shame on Home Depot for doing business with these clowns.

              Poor quality control - cannot assemble
              Was not able to assemble product due to multiple cross threaded nuts. One nut is so cross threaded that I can't remove it. Also, no included tools to assemble the handle, there's not enough room for a 7/16" nut driver to function which is the only tool they say is required. There needs to be a right angle screwdriver included.

                Quality product especially at the sale price. Assembly was on the easier side and looking forward to many cooks after initial burn in

                Great little beast.
                I’ve had the grilled for about a week. Assembly was easy, the only awkward piece to attach was the handle. You’ll need something with a 90 degree handle to fit in a tight place. Since the legs are pretty short I used 1.25 conduit pipe to raise the grill to 3ft so no more bending over. I grilled on it several times and only smoked ribs on it so far and I’ve been impressed with it. Once you get used to the airflow valves you can hold a steady temp for a long time. Very happy with this budget friendly Komodo style grill.

                  Love this little grill/smoker. Great for a small family. I’ve both grilled and smoked. Both went perfectly. This little unit is frugal with the charcoal as well. If you’re looking to use this as an everyday grill, you’ll need to figure a way to set it up with a cart or table since the legs are short. Best purchase of the year.

                    Poor Design, Even worse QA/QC
                    I haven't used it yet, but I like The concept this unit and general design. However, the it took me about 2 hours to assemble this thing, with use of a drill press and extra tools. My skill level is that of a amateur carpenter/handy man. The issues are thus: (1) the handle cannot be screwed into the lid as the handle side assumes the screw holes are parallel, whereas the dome is not--I solved this by widening the hole in the handle and forcing the screw in...and/or by screwing in only one bolt out of two on each side. This helps, but there's limited space to work with. (2) The lid does not align easily, or at all, with the bottom half. There's some wiggle room, but it was insufficient. I solved this by using a washer as a spacer to get it aligned. (3) I noticed bare steel inside. I think, during manufacturing they must have scraped it against something and it got missed in QA/QC because I also noticed another ding/paint chip that was painted over. (4) The vent at the top does not slot in all the way such that the rubber gasket will still show at the top (i'm also not sure if it's suppose to slot in all the way), but regardless, the tabs underneath the dome where it connects is flexible and if you screw the top vent too tight you end up cracking the paint and bending the tab. So be careful there. All in all, I think it will work well for me. None of my complaints above really affect the performance of the unit, but is very annoying--I wouldn't recommend buying this unit unless you have the know how to mitigate the poor QA/QC or is okay with a the potential issues i mentioned. I also did not recommend this product because I don't believe buyers should have to go through this on any product--ever. You can't beat the price though! Especially compared to the green egg or kamado joe.

                      We love this little grill! It does everything... grilling, smoking & baking! Makes the best calzones, pizzas & cinnamon dough! We bought the Smokin' Stone as well, was well worth the money... we use it for smoking as well as baking... Crusts come out wonderful right on top of it! We bought this grill for camping, but we also use it all the time at home, even though we have a larger grill.. this one is our "go to"! Every single thing we've made with this grill has come out amazing!
