Nice grill but had to return due to NY housing restrictions…
Craig Caruthers –
Very happy with the quality for this price. Temp is easy to control making delicious results gety easy.
angela petty –
I put it together in about 3 hours..
For 300.00+ this grill is total junk.- Flimsy parts that show signs of rust.- It was missing all 4 heat shields which I then had to call in to obtain.- The propane hose is way too short so it doesn’t reach the tank.- There is no cabinet for the propane tank. It just sits on the ground, the hell?Do not buy this grill.
Assembly Instructions were pretty crap and ended up finding a similar grill on youtube and following along most of which was similar. In 2021 no excuses for not having a video of every unit with a link if you cannot manage clear written instructions.Other than this seems like a nice unit. Incan see why some have said it does not get high enough temps for searing steaks but other than this seems good.

I put this together in about 2 hours by myself. It was a gift for my husband for Father’s Day. It is very sturdy and cooks food evenly. If you dont want to spend the time putting it together would suggest paying the extra $94 to have Amazon put it together for you.
Daniel K Wilson –
Missing parts so I cannot assemble.

This grill is amazing! I use it at least 3 times a week. Super easy to clean and has a lot of room for multiple foods. I love the side burner as well to use a pan outside while I’m cooking. I wish it came with hooks for the grilling utensils but that’s nothing a few magnetic hooks for grills can’t fix!I have had this grill for several months now and use it quite often and haven’t experienced any yellowing on the top like some people have said. Please keep in mind that my grill has a cover while I’m not using it’s under shade so I don’t know if that’s also a factor. I will post an update if Anything changes with pictures. If there’s no update then it’s still holding up strong!
Amazon Customer –
Great piece of kit
Joy D Johnson –
I put this together myself. It was an easy set up. Cleaning up is easy. Paired with the cover, it looks great.

Some gripes. Minor: The installation instructions are kind of hidden deep in the user manual and for some reason listed nearly last in the table of contents. And they ore of the variety “no words so everyone in any language is equally unable to decipher them.The grills, The actual grilling surfaces, are really narrow metal with far too much space for things to fall through, and don’t fit very well. So cleaning with a grill brush causes them to slide around, crashing loudly into the sides of the grill.Most annoying, and I don’t know why no one else seems to be mentioning this, is that there is a channel at the front of the burners running the width of the grill that carry’s the flame between the sets of burners. This is very poorly designed in that it actually directs the majority of the flame right to where your hand is when you use tongs or a spatula. Pretty much requires you to wear fire proof grill mits when using.

Over the years, it’s been hit or miss on grills, even the higher end brands. The old Char-Broil one at camp lasted for plus or minus 15 years and worked great the whole time. So we bought this new version for our home, and it also worked great. Then the old camp one died, so we bought this model again for there. We’ll stick with Char-Broil going forward.
All parts arrived in great shape. Packaging was very durable and orderly. Visual directions adequate. Two screw locations, behind the side burner, were difficult to tighten without mangling the heads, but I persevered. Fired it up and got great sear marks first time!
Amazon Customer –
Two months old and I love it.
Mr Joshua –
There’s one just like this at Lowe’s for $50 less but when you look closely you’ll see the burners are different, better on this one. I’m happy with the build quality and materials and it cooks well but runs a little hot (IMO).

I love how easy it is to clean the bottom pan. You can slide it out and wash it. Improved temperature control.
Mark Mendel –
It is a great grill. Lots of work to assemble it but good directions–kind of a fun project.
Good grill. Strong flame. U need to find ur spots bc the flame could be stronger in certain places then others.
The nozzles stopped turning the grill to off and on. Now the flame just spits. Won’t go above 150 F- Horrible buy
Amazon Customer –
great for price
Kindle Customer Duke –
Well it does what it’s suppose to do, burnt on the outside raw on the in must be the way I cook.
My husband put the grill together and the lid doesn’t close properly because the base is damaged. It was damaged before it was ever put in the box. I’m disappointed with the finished product. We’ll see if it cooks properly.
scott endicott –
I did not buy for my self, but for my daughter and her husband. They love it so does Jack , my grandson. She cook on it this whole 4th weekend.
It is what it is
Amazon Customer –
It light fast and easy
It’s not the long/ horizontal shape that I expected in a grill. It’s more square which is hard to tell from the pic. It is a good grill but it may be some thing worth buying off the lot so you can see it and avoid the assembly which takes about 2-3 hours.
Assembly requires patience and requires the preparation of additional screws and nuts. In the position of the stove, the original screws cannot be used for tightening and the installation position is in a dead angle.
Didn’t function properly right off the bat! Had to call customer service and describe the issue. They said the carry over tubes were burning flames and we would need to order 3 of them and pay $3.95 for shipping. This is very frustrating as this was a gift for a female family member that lives in another state so we aren’t there to help her fix it!
Narayan Schiro –
Literally the worst piece of crap grill I’ve ever purchased. Flame is low, have to stand in front of a steak for 20 minutes to get to rare. Terrible sear. Unbelievable.
jeff mcquiston –
I purchased this grill for my 29 year old son that is super busy with his own Business. He just purchased a house, has 2 small sons, and his wife works full time. They always order out and I wanted to present the art of BBQ. He loves it. They kids enjoy all the recipes he is doing on the grill. It is a family event. Many compliments on the handsome grill. The side burner is also a hit. He thanks me often for the grill. It was a house warming present.
Amazon Customer –
Very easy to assemble,prompt delivery.
Edward Ganzekaufer –
Came in new condition, assembled fairly easily, works like a charm and keeps temp effectively. Couldn’t ask for more.
JASON P FERGUSON –
I don’t yet know how this grill works, as I just put it together yesterday. But it took us 2 hours to assemble this thing.So many things are wrong with the design. Screws need to be screwed into places you can’t even reach with your hand, better yet with a screwdriver. Pieces of steel cut your hands while you screw bolts in place. Instructions are horridly complex. And maybe most annoying of all, some of the pieces really DID NOT need to be assembled by customers. They could have easily been sent to you already put together as they’re small and wouldn’t take up much space regardless.Maybe a fun thing for lego-loving adults, but if you just want to get it over with, be prepared to dedicate a good chunk of your day to laboring over this grill.
Douglas J Strout –
This is the second one I’ve had. For a lower end grill this has all the features and performance you want.
The bottom tray is hard to clean. The grill performs very good.
Jessica DeRosa –
Received package as promised. Thank you. However, box looks a bit beat up. Will not know extent of damage until assembly during upcoming week. Will take pictures in case.
Greg Talpey –
There was no hardware pack in the box – not possible to assemble. Looks nice scattered on my living room floor.

Great grillEasy to maintain
Used it many times already, my husbands addicted to it, great griller! Arrived fast.
Amazon Customer –
Was a little worried for the quality for the inexpensive price, but pleasantly surprised with the BBQ for overall quality and ease of assembly. Made great bone in ribeyes the first night!
Vito W. Atria –
Practical for backyard BBQ. Easy to assemble, 1-2 hours, few tools needed. Typical questionable directions.I like the four burner cooking feature. When grill is maxed with steaks four burners does the job. Have noticed cool spot to front of the grill. Cleans well.
Amazon Customer –
This case with parts missing and no legs at all. When I called Charbroil and asked them to fix the mistake, Elizabeth wanted me to register the grill and jump through many hoops rather than just fix their mistake as a company should do… very disappointed with Elizabeth and Charbroil.
Endre D. Vargha –
I like the 4 burners and a warming station ensign. Some of the descriptions (illustrations) are not clear. Example: page 41, item M, Venturi clip, could not figure out how to install.
Chloe McTighe –
Bought this grill for my dad‘s birthday last year so this is an 8 month review. He absolutely loves it and installed it the date came in. It was super easy to install and looks incredible in our yard. I definitely recommend this grill for someone on a budget needing a new one. Still is great condition 8 months later but we did have to buy a cover for it.
This grill was easy to assemble and the instructions were easy to follow. It cooks great and is sturdy. My only complaint is that the handle gets very hot (not enough to burn, but uncomfortable to touch), but otherwise it is great. Cooks well and the side burner is great too.
Sarah Pi –
This is a great grill! It was easy to assemble and came super quickly! It looks great and is easy to clean. The actual grill part has wider plates on it so the food stays on it easier. It’s awesome!
Caroline R –
Fast delivery and easy assembly! Very satisfied with the quality of this product. Highly recommend.
Rachel D Lawton –
It took much longer to put together because we didn’t have the correct tool to complete Step 1. I needed a right angle screw driver. Ended up buying one at Home Depot, after that, it was breeze.
Marjorie Rashidyan –
Really unhappy with amazon services. This grill came with “free assembly” but it was an incredible hassle to get someone out to actually assemble this. It’s extremely wobbly but I don’t know if that’s the assembly or the grill. Grilled a decent steak, though.

This grill assembles easily.We have used it for burgers, steaks, chicken and veggies.

I received our grill and it came dented on top. Packaging looked good on the outside and was tightly packed but just had a major dent on top.
back yard bbq –
the burners and shields rusted very quickly
Nice work excellent
Maybe I had too high of expectations for the product, as I am not so thrilled about it. Its an alright grill.
Scott ButtsScott Butts –
Very easy to assemble and works amazing. Great value for the product and the best grill I’ve ever owned. 100% would recommend
Nothing to say
carole sims –
The only thing about this grill that I have found is the handle gets very hot and can easily get burned on it. Make sure to use a oven mitt when using grill
I just received my grill and am pretty much satisfied with it. My only issue is that the electronic ignition has issues. It worked once and never again, even though the battery is new
Maureen Ciccone –

My Old KY HomeMy Old KY Home –
This is the 3rd grill I have have put together in my life and it took me (alone) 110 minutes. The directions were pretty straight forward except for piece M. I took a photo to help. It came with two small dents that I am certain came from how the box was left on its side at my door. I also put a dent in it during installation of the first 9 screws that were terrible to get in. There are 3 other screws that require a flexible or bent screw driver. Overall the assembly was fine.The grill itself is good and excellent for the price. It got to 550 within 10 minutes. I waited 11 minutes but the temp remained at 550. The grates are cast and the openings between are plenty big for drippings to go through. I do not like this better than my current grill, but my current grill cost at least $200 dollars more than this one. I also went to the local big box store to compare this with other Char-broil grills and found this Amazon version to be a great value with its side burner and cast grates.
Matt Lasayko –
Wasn’t to bad to put together. Simple instructions, all you need is a phillips screwdriver. Best grill for the money $300.
amir b. –
Like: Good valueDislike: Poorly packaged – parts did not stay in place inside box. Quite a few dings and dents and scratches on parts. Most of them were not on the visible part of the grill so I Assembled. Instructions not the best/not clear. I think I should get a discount/credit. I did not want the hassle of sending this one back and requesting a new one. See the photos included in this review that I have attached showing the damage. Thank you.
Great product. Super easy to assemble and cooks great. Gets hot enough to sear steaks and looks great on my deck. Great grill for the money!

LaFreda Ceaser –
So far so good! It took hubby a minute to assemble. We had to look up an assembly on you tube to get the last bit of assembly done. Other than that it looks good. So shiny and pretty. We cooked a couple of steaks on it for the first time and that steak was like butter.
Perfect! Grills to perfection you won’t be disappointed! Great price! 5
Makes burgers and chops even chicken breast in no time and all tastes great and nice side burner

Love the grill, but I’ll never buy an unassembled grill again!
This grill is fairly easy to assemble; the temperature gauge did not work. (reads 650 even with the grill off.I have been grilling for over 30 years,The most important thing for a grill is the cooking:This grill does not get hot enough to truly sear meat. Reset the regulator over 6 times, but the grill will still not get hot enough to sear food.My last gas grill was a 3 burner Char-Broil that was fine for grilling. This grill just does not get as hot.Tried to contact customer service: chat unavailable; I have been on hold on the phone for over one hour!Update: June 20Finally, after over 6 hours waiting reached Customer support. They sent a new regulator : it worked for two days then failed again!!!! While it was working, the poor design of the grill became noticeable. The extender tube of the burners is located near the front of the grill. That means the heat and smoke are concentrated at the front where you cook instead of the back like other grills I have owned. Meanwhile, I still cant get the temperature past 450 degrees( not hot enough to sear burgers or steaks) ok for fish or slow cook. The problem may be the in-line regulator. I have read other people use the offset regulator with success. I will try that from another manufacturer
Husband was very happy
Tom Bakeman –
I dislike the burners. Seems like the carryover on the burners doesn’t seem to work right
Debbie K –
We purchased the grill as we live in a very windy city and our other girll would not stay lit, the firebox was to shallow. This grill has no such problem lots of flame and temperature control.
Michelle Green –
Directions are awful. Explains nothing, very disappointed
Just unpacked it. One of the legs (part#36) is messed up. It arrived damaged inside the undamaged package. I will reach out to the manufacturer. I will update my review once issue is resolved. I am unable to get anyone on the phone at Char Broil. I’ve tried numerous times. I’ve filed a claim with their warranty department via email… no response yet.
Glenn Roedel –
Very good grill, heats evenly and hot. Cooked a 24 pound turkey on it with no issues. Assembly is a bit tricky and may require two people. Other than that I have no complaints and well worth the money.
Have only had it put together forva few days now but its a great grill for the price. Has 4 burners, a side burner, and a bun rack on the inside. The stainless finish is nice as well.
Emily Grundy –
Sooooo many pieces. But excited to try. Don’t be fooled by the tall box that blends into the side!!! It is all there!
Beautiful Grill, very glad i bought it!!!! Came with one screw missing thankfully i had a screw on hand! would deff tell others to buy it!!!
John Flanagan –
Great grill. Perfect price. It does take a lil longer to cook. But half the price of many others.
Amazon Customer –
Unfortunately, the automatic igniter has never worked. Fortunately, our son used a candle lighter to ignite the BBQ. Unfortunately, pieces were bent at transport. Fortunately, our son assembled it by bending some into place, but some parts never fitted well. Fortunately, the BBQ worked the first time we used it. The temperature was good, and the food was yummy.
Really wasn’t that difficult to put together. I did it in a little over an hour with almost no diy experience. The grill works great and is very easy to use!
Christy Rempel –
Very cheap grill!!! One screw was missing!! The box it came in was handled very carelessly, and the bottoms was open!! Would not recommend!!! Disappointing!!!
Amazon Customer –
Good grill for price
Joe Kennedy –
I don’t believe that this really is stainless steel.
Douglas E. Love –
Buyer beware. BBQ worked well for 9 months and then the flame decreased significantly. Changed the propane tank even though it was full. Still a very small flame. Had my handyman look at it and appears there’s a defect in the propane line to the burners, or with the burners themselves. In any case, the BBQ doesn’t work and it cheaper to replace than to have fixed, although know one wants to replace a $300 BBQ after 9 mo of use. Bummer.
Bought for my husband he said while putting together that it was very strudy and that he loves it cook on it last night and food was great. will purchase again
Steven H –
Out of the box, the regulator for this grill would switch off as soon as the fourth burner was lit. It took forever to assemble, then was a headache to disassemble for return.
Such a pain in the butt to put together! Once its together its cool but I would of way rather bought this preassmbled for the exact same price at home depot. Package arrived a day early but box was beat up and literally soaking wet on one side and falling apart. (Hasnt rained here in weeks so we can leave the mystery liquid to our imaginations.) One corner of the hood is scratched with a minor dent as a result. All in all decent grill but save yourself the hassle and buy it assembled at home depot, lowes or wherever else.
Bethany C. –
Nice grill, easy to assemble and works great. I gave it 3 starts through because the grease catch drips everywhere so we had to buy an extra grease trap and the wheels don’t lock so when trying the flip food the grill moves around a little bit.
The instructions to assemble are awesome and crisp. I love this one but I felt not so sturdy. Can’t complain anything for now- easy to clean.
Bought it for my dad and he loves it
Jerry G. –
Grill fell apart. Damaging beyond repair
Amazon Customer –
Hard to assemble the screws as they are so close to the walls.
Laura Roark –
My husband loves it. We weren’t sure about it because some of the reviews made it seem hard to put together, the ignitor stopped working and one person said, “not for indoor use” with a picture of their apartment on fire. First off, who the heck would think it’s okay to put a propane grill in their home? When they say a grill is for indoor use, they mean like a garage with plenty of ventilation. As for the installation, it was very easy, and we assume the people who had trouble, just don’t have much experience. Last thing, the ignitor takes batteries. For those of yall who said it doesn’t work, do you know it takes batteries? Anyway, it’s a good grill for the price. So far so good.. It does what it was born to do. Have a great day!
Jerry G. –
I am retired and restore old cars and I am sure over my lifetime have assembled 1000 products. This bar-B-Q pit was the worst thing I have ever tackled. And if that not bad enough I bought 2 of these things . I am sure nobody in there organization ever put one of these together because if they did surely the would have found and easier way to to assemble it.
A friend assembled this for me. It’s sturdy and works great. Much better than the generic Walmart grill I bought before this.
Carlos García MejíaCarlos García Mejía –
The media could not be loaded.
Lo que no me gusta es que todo lo caliente está cargado a un so lado en la parte de atrás no calienta bien, no se porque los hacen así.
It’s built kinda crappy but it has a lot of cooking power (high BTU) and it’s not terribly expensive.
Keith Espe –
Clean the drip tray after every use to avoid flare ups.
Madeline Sabatino –
Very upset, received our grill and it was damage, box was fine no damage to shipping box . Grill is dented, has pings in top . Also frame is out of alignment. Corners are bent on several sides. Top looks like it was sat on . Already have out of box and will not all fit back in to return. So disappointedHave never has this happen through amazon.
Great grill for a great price
Love the grill I use it all the time
Very sturdy BBQ for a reasonable price
Brandon Boyd –
The grill is fine for cooking with the hood down, but the burners don’t put off enough heat to cook with the hood up. Definitely far from ideal, especially when cooking things like burgers or steak. Pretty disappointing.
Kindle Customer –
This is a good product. This is the second one I purchased. The first one lasted 8 years. The assembly took 2 people 5 hours. You really need 2 patient people to get this together. II had one screw levt over because the instructions indicated 2 screws where there were 3 holes. The burner connecter click was tricky but there is a good youtube video for this (and the rest of the assembly.) The top for the side burner did not fit flush and leaves a shoddy appearance. I will look for a fire proof spacer to make this look better. We are pleased with the appearance and expect the cooking to go well.
This grill is not worth the money spent. The lights were cracked and it is made really cheap for a grill at $300…..I was dissapointed with it but didnt want to go through the hastle of returning it.Not happy:-(
Kind of flimsy quality and heats very unevenly
Amz Cstmr –
I just got this product, so I’m unsure on durability. However, assembly, sturdiness and quality for price are 5 stars. I am satisfied with this purchase.
S. E. Jordan –
It’s similar to our last one, also Char Broil, so we know what we should expect with its performance. So far it’s 5 star.
Randall Parker –
Some assembly required but not too difficult. Took me about 90 minutes to assemble. All you need is a phillips screwdriver.
There is no seal around lid, all sides are turning dark, sides of handle towards center get extremely hot. Be careful!
DANIEL COTTRELL –
Third time using the first burner caught fire on the outside melted the knob. The burners never flowed right from day one . Biggest piece of crap of a gas grill I ever purchase.
Erik Cambray –
Easy to assemble
UH Dad –
I bought this grill 2 months ago. After 3 uses, it started to leak propane at the valve connector. After going back and forth with Char-Broil, they said they could get me a replacement part is 5 months! What a terrible product and even worse service. Do not buy.

Hamburgers,hot dogs,cedar plank salmon so far and have loved every bit of it.

Took me some time to put together (there were more pieces than I expected). The screws were not easy to ergonomically insert. However, the grill looks good, seems solid and started up right away the first time I tried. Looking forward to years of use.
Maria Garcia-Montes –
Is a good barbecue, cooks well, the meat comes out very well
Bought this gas grill because of the price and it was an Amazon top seller but…my work has purchased several of these too for rentals we manage and everyone loves the grills,easy to clean and just look good! Some folks love these too much with a couple “disappearing” each season,but a great value and grill
Yvonne S MohrYvonne S Mohr –
Great product perfect for my screen porch So elegant for the price I paid cant complain
I used this grill the first day after it was assembled and was happy with the results of grilling chicken thighs which was very tasty. The control of heat from preheating to cooking is very good. The tray to catch the Grease and drippings performed as it should. The entire grill was fairly easy to clean. The instructions for assembly need improvement as they are not clear in places. The design of where propane tank is mounted is completely unsatisfactory. It sits on a metal bar about 1.5 wide with notches in it. You are to place the notches in bottom of tank with notches in the bar together. Just how can an older person lift a full tank which weighs between 37 to 40 pounds into this awkward position? You have to be on your knees to lift tank off the floor of patio onto the bar and then maneuver it so the notches line up and the half circle bar at top lines up with top of propane tank to hold it in place. This is impossible! I’m trying to think of something to add to make this possible for a 78 year old.
Conrad S. –
Happy with my purchase, so far works great!
The Shopper –
The grill comes in a thousand little pieces. The instructions are mostly pretty clear, but since there’s no text or labeling of the pieces, they can be cryptic in a few places. If you ever had to assemble something like this, there’s always at least one point that you find that you used a wrong piece something and have to take it apart – this was no exception.So after spending a few hours putting the grill together, I got to one of the final steps of anchoring part of the regulator to the side grill, only to find that the piece was bent and not able to be attached. So no I spent $300 on a flimsy grill, and spent around 2 hours of my time to find that it’s defective. I have no idea what I’m going to do now.The grill itself looks cheap. Everything is thing and wobbly. There’s not even a proper place to put the propane tank. It’s just meant to balance on a rail with a wire to hook it into place.I’m really disappointed with this purchase. Even without the defective piece, this is not a $300 grill. Maybe $150 at best.
I absolutely LOVE this grill!! It is THE best grill I have ever owned. Extremely sturdy, cooks quickly and evenly and provides ample grilling space. I definitely recommend this grill for anyone in the market for one.
John Zukar –
Assembly was a little tricky, but it is a great grill, heats fast and is easy to keep clean.
lingaiah mendu –
The grill broke with in a month and the propane gas is leaking. Now I can’t even repair it or get a refund.Buying these expensive items on amazon is a ripoff. I should have bought it at LOWES or HOMEDEPOT.Amazon is good for only cheap books that cost less than $5. I will never buy expensive things on amzon again.
Everything about that bbq is great, would definitively recommend buying. I don’t believe you can find anything better for the price
Amazon Customer –
Already starting to rust and its kept inside an attached garage. Very disappointed.
Jo Ellen O’Reilly –
We use our outdoor grill multiple times weekly year round. Our previous grill was knocked over by the recent high winds and was severely damaged. We appreciated the quick delivery just prior to Christmas because we did grill on Christmas eve.
It comes in 100 pieces, if you don’t know what you are doing, it’s dangerous, this is a GAS ITEM. Better to buy assembled at homedepot and cheaper
Eric OxelsonEric Oxelson –
Every thing is fine and grill works well and as hoped for. the mounting screws for the two side shelves are switched. What is called for for the right works instead works only on the left and those called for on the left belong on the right. Once I figured that out I could finish the assembly using all of the pats and nuts and bolts and washers. Family happy with the indirect grilling of salmon filets.I like the steel grills better than the stainless on the unit I had worn out and was replacing.. I have been careful to follow suggested cleaning instructions using warm soapy water on a cool off unit and using only soft bristle brushes without metallic or brushes or harsh abrasive pads. I was able to add a drawer from the earlier grill I had used for years. Like the price, function, and delivery
John Phillip –
Purchased this grill from Lowe’s in the summer of 1999. Didn’t even make it 6 months before problems arose. Wont stay Lit and when it is lit burners won’t raise. Flame stays the Same whether on high or low. Which is at the lowest setting. Which means won’t get hot enough to even cook meat.
Product was short one screw type and another didn’t have slots cut in the head. Assembly instructions are line drawings that aren’t always clear. No written instruction for assembly is included.
Assembly woes:No extra screws so don’t lose anything.Attaching the front trim to the burner side tray is almost impossible due to lack of access to fit a Philips head screw driver or bit. I ended up having to use a drill bit and using my fingers to turn the screws in (not easy if you don’t have small hands…see attached pictures).Pros:Grill has no problem getting to the top of the 650 degree temperature gauge, and heat seems to be spread evenly.For the price, grill looks very sharp. Materials and construction seem higher grade than other grills in price range. Grill surface is shaped well to maximize usage.Starts really easily (very satisfying).Cons:Frame isn’t the most stable feeling if it needs to be moved around regularly.Tank storage rack is just one bar and one bent metal wire across the top. I don’t trust it holding the tank in place if moving it around.
Gabriel NunezGabriel Nunez –
Beautiful stainless steel finish, love just to look at it. Purchased towards the end of the season so I haven’t been able to cook extensively on it yet. First impressions are positive, good heat distribution and strength. I was able to put it together by myself in just a few hours, an extra pair of hands would have made it even easier.
Ronna Feldman –
Next time I’ll shop it before I make that kind of purchase. It won’t last long.
easy to assemble, easy to use, easy to clean.. good price.. looks great…
Brooke P. –
Not enough heat distribution on burners. The front of the grill has the big heat source and the back of the slats seems like indirect heat cooking. Last charbroil model I had had much better distribution. The unit works but in retrospect, would rather spend more money for a better model
Pretty good grill. No problems assembling. Couple issues with it though.First, when it comes originally, it’s a nice stainless steel finish. But after one or two uses, the top of the lid around the thermometer now looks heat-tempered (a brownish color). Not so pretty anymore.Second, the grills themselves don’t fit tightly enough. There is maybe a centimeter of play or a little less. So when you try to clean it with a stainless steel brush, the grills wriggle and bang around. Very noisy and annoying.Third, the grill is not exactly light-weight, but also not exactly medium-weight either. With a grill cover on it, it blew over during some gusty fall winds, onto our concrete patio. I just wonder if that might not have happened if it were made a little more sturdy / heavy. At least though, there doesn’t seem to be any physical damage at all to the grill from the fall. Probably can attribute that to the grill cover though, which prevented scratches on the handle, etc.Four, the left side burner lid doesn’t sit flush with the rest of the left table top. It actually rests on the burner wireframe that are supposed to hold up any pots or pans, instead of a dedicated lid stop.Five, the left and right side tables are made of stainless steel also, which I suppose looks well enough, but if you are putting things on it, I would expect it to get scratched up pretty easily. I have been gentle with it but already see a little rust forming in a semicircle pattern from what was probably a dish or something.Six, it did not come with any hooks on the sides to hang tongs, brushes, etc (which is NECESSARY because you don’t want to actually use the shelves because you’ll scratch them). So I had to buy after-market attachments from other vendors.

This grill is a b_tch to assemble. Tiny screws, tight spaces and awkward angles make it challenge from the first step. It would help to have 4 small, ambidextrous hands that are very strong. It weighs a ton. I wish the company directors would assemble one.
didn’t realize this was designed to be used indoors only. The lighter stopped working after it rained once. I went to take out the battery, there is water inside. Customer support said they can ship me a new one but can’t guarantee it won’t break again. Very disappointed.Also feels flimsy, if you pull by the side, only a couple of screws are connecting to the main part of the grill.also the grill consists of 3 metal plates, they don’t fill the space all the way, so when you brush on the grill, it gets super loud when them crashing into one another.Fire is supposed to be even but after using for two months, the fire closest to you is definitely way stronger than the rest of the grill.Do NOT buy this!!!

Was able to put this together on my own within 90 minutes or less. Seems very sturdy, haven’t used it yet as it’s a Valentine’s gift but i’m happy with it so far! Will update after use.
Wife enjoys using it. No problems with the unit. Cooks the meat good if you know how to use the burners.
Chief Quazi Callahan –
Not buying another igniter unit. Employees can use matches . However they or I will never be buying anything from Char-Broil until billionaires pay their fair share of taxes. So, like never.
Dennis M. Pellarin –
I have already used it a number of times and I am very happy with this Char-Broil BBQ. I’ve had a couple in the past and will continue purchasing their product.
Durable frill. Side burner is better for slow cooking or warming.
Eddie Paul –
The burner that runs along the front of the grill gets very hot for your hands.
Nancy Magagna –
Temperature was not easy to control and keep different areas of the grill at different settings.
Amazon Customer –
there was a couple dings in it but nothing bad overall nice grill
Kathleen Furniss –
I love it. It’s so easy to use, clean and temperature control is uniform.
Michael H. –
Directions were not the best.. But easy to figure out..
The graphic instructions & well organized hardware packet made the assembly straight forward. Lit the burners & liked the solid blue flames & the distribution. Will grill on it soon, but the assembly went well.
Amazon Customer –
It’s not too terrible to build, and it’s a basic, decent, straightforward grill. However, the electric start button has quit working after about 15 uses. Frustrating.
I hope to update this review, but it was super frustrating to unpack all the pieces only to discover essential pieces are missing (the sides of the cart, wheels, and cooking grills).
Dave pratt –
Very easy to assemble and well worth the money
Alex Dockery –
always had a small grill at my apartment – moved into a house and wanted something larger but still on a budget. Use it every day
Tom Jordan –
Instructions were tough to follow. Small pics that didnt really explain what was going on. Youll likely need to youtube. Also..very difficult to put screws in some spots due to tight areas. You will need small hands or a couple of small socket wrenches and a small phillips head. It will still be a pain.Some of this feels flimsy. Also there is no floor to set the tank on. It balances on the base…very odd. Overall construction seems weird. They couldve made this much simpler and much more practical but didnt. If I had the choice again I wouldnt have bought this one. But it cooks decent. Still for $299 I feel like it could have been better. Our last grill was same price and way better construction and much easier to put together.
Scott Hill –
This is my 3rd Char-Boil grill and the first one that I have ordered off of amazon. The instructions were fairly easy to follow and only needed a phillips head screw driver. The only hard part of the assembly was the gas burner had three screws that you could only screw in at an odd angle. I was able to get them on but it wasn’t easy.Other than that one hiccup everything went together well and it took no time to heat up and prep for the first time use.Overall its a great looking grill and I expect to have many years of usage from it!
Lee Kroeger –
Great gas grill for the money! Assembled in about 90 minutes, instructions all pictures no verbiage. Very good design, stainless steel burners and covers.
M. A. Dicarlo –
My husband assembled this in one hour. We’re very happy with this grill. I like that it has 4 burners and is all stainless steel. I also like that it has a side burner for a skillet. I like to cook fish in the skillet outside to avoid lingering cooking smells inside the house. The front part of the grill gets hotter than the back of the grill so we rotate meat from the front to the back.
Grill is nice. Better than expected
Beautiful grill and works perfectly. Nice size for a family of 5.
ellen hoffman –
I was disappointed that the product on line shows a cabinet at bottom where I thought the propane tank would go ,in reality, this is not the way the grill really looks . There is no cabinet and the propane tank shows , it is just unsightly .My last BBQ ,which was much less expensive, had a cabinet that the tank sat in .If it hadn’t already been assembled I would have returned it .Unhappy customer !!!
Very nice being stainless steel and 4 burner unit for the price point. Assembly takes some time but expected on something like this. Have used it multiple times and always works as it should. Really good depth on the grill.
Great assembly instructions….easy to maintain temps…
R. Labbe –
For the reduced cost of this unit and the time it took to assemble, 45 minutes. It is worth the money. Have used it about 15 times already and so far so good. Everything is well crafted.
Joshua Randall –
My first propane grill and I love it.
Denis Cole –
My wife got me this for our anniversary. In terms of pros, this is the nicest grill I have ever owned. The thermometer allows me to make sure my grill is at my ideal temperature. I also love the fact that the grated on the inside leave that traditional grill line through my meat. The only con I have with it is that putting it together kind of sucked. Definitely have a second person if available, but I put it together alone so I am sure you can.
First off, I wasn’t aware grills can be shipped in boxes. I was wrong. The package arrived in one heavy box that is best maneuvered with two people or one strong person. Although the instructions state its best assembled with two people, I did it myself in a span of about 2.5 hours. The top part of the grill is pretty much one piece, so most of the assembly concerns the supporting base. I did everything per the manual, with the exception that I left one screw out because it was hard to screw in.The grill looks great and cooks great. I have a small family, so the cooking area is big enough, especially with the side burner. I would definitely recommend this trusted brand.
Mike W.Mike W. –
Need better safety warnings!! Product is apparently not for indoor cooking….Decided to bring our grill inside for the cold winter months, (figured if stovetops work, why not propane grill?) I had already winterized/sealed all my windows for the season.Needless to say, my entire apartment complex (1,500 population) needed to be evacuated, kitchen fumigated, I got hit with a hefty fine/hospital bill. Already reached out to CharBroil for reinbursement.I guess I should have went with the Weber Grill instead.

Great grill. Good size. Not too big, not too small.Unfortunately the cover we recieved with ours never says on. It pulls off with any kind of wind & the straps it came with have no way of attatching to keep it velcrowd
David Fronzuto –
Great product very easy to assemble
We love it. A lot of parts to out together but great product. Some areas are hard to reach for cleaning.
Frank Geu –
Does not go to high heat on any of the burnets. Didn’t make it 5 months and it was covered since assembly. JUNK!!
Anthony Null –
Can’t get Yellow flame regulated
I put it together by myself…. 40+ yr old lady. I didn’t understand one picture on step 11…how to attach piece M…I used a youtube video to see what the heck the pic was showing. The video was way more helpful than that photo in the manual. All the rest of the steps in the manual were easy for me to understand and do. I used it for the first time to grill hot dogs to celebrate Mother’s Day. The grill did a great job! Can’t wait to grill lots more on there this summer.
The interior of this grill is easy to clean. The grease just comes right off with a damp sponge. The burner covers and grates are also an easy cleanup.
Amazon Customer –
We’ve used it a bunch since the purchase. We love it!
So far so good! Follow the assembly instructions and you will be fine, it’s pretty easy. We also ordered a Char-Broil cover to protect it since we live on the coast.
Andrew TuckerAndrew Tucker –
As I understand it, the biggest complaint is that the instructions suck. Well, that is true. There is very little verbiage, and you need to really pay attention to the illustrations.That being said, I assembled it by myself in 2 hours. (Please keep in mind I’m a field engineer for a medical device company)Pretty much all you will need a phillips screwdriver, and some patience.You will receive a large rectangular box, and definitely get an extra set of hands if possible to help you pick it up.From there, lay out all the components within sight/reach and inventory all the parts. Once you visually check them, it’ll help identifying them later. (Again, the instructions are lacking) I will update this review if I have anything “great/not great” after I put it to use
Charmaine E Wellington –
I just wrote a review complaining that the grill was wider than the product information said it was. In fact, the information is correct; the grill is 50.4″ wide. I don’t know how to revise a submitted review
This literally took twice as long as it should have because of how bad the the instructions are. There is still one piece after 2 weeks I have given up trying to get to fit. Good product but please redo your instructions.
Tamara Kleinschmidt –
It’s heavy and built well. Like all my grills anymore there is more fire by the beginning of the tube. This makes the heat not even. The starter doesn’t always work. We’ve just had it a little over a week. I had a Blue Rhino grill. It was very cheap and the starter is still working. But the insides fell apart. Just wish I could get a grill that heats evenly and the starter works longer than a month.
Janice B. Gore –
We love the grill. Attractive. Steaks are delicious.

Robert BaumannRobert Baumann –
I set aside all the parts for my grill, then opened the instruction packet. I instantly realized I’m either missing 1/4 of the pieces (including the wheels) and I literally couldn’t even get started. I think it’s embarrassing this company messes up so frequently their phone lines are impenetrable for now upwards of twenty-five minutes. If they don’t immediately correct the errors, I will be either returning or destroying this grill. I’m not interested in having a pile of garbage take up 90% of my living room. Had a bad week, now it’s worse.
Jason R. Clayton –
I was looking for a small grill for my deck, and this fit the bill perfectly. I have friends with larger grills, and unless you’re cooking for a lot of people, you don’t need a huge grill. This is perfect for burgers, ribs, hot dogs etc., and you can get that great grill flavor. It was fun to assemble, and it is easy to clean – the grill tops, burner covers, and bottom pan all come out easily and can be washed in my sink.
Jim Winterberg –
great grille at good price
Jody Dean Murphy –
We love this grill! It works great and is easy to clean! We use it all the time!
Douglas M –
It does what grills do. Grill
Decent for the price, this model is apparently an amazon exclusive but replacement parts are easily available, hopefully will last longer than my charbroil advantage did. As I’ve found with almost all charbroil grills the front gets significantly hotter that the rear, the lid for the side burner doesn’t lay flat so it can be annoying to lay utensils on. I would look locally next time and find a better deal, but all in all it’s a decent gas grill.Also don’t ever bother with a side burner grill unless you’re using it at a camper/cabin. You’ll almost never use it.
Matt Nichols –
We got this grill for my husbands birthday and I’m so bummed to say it’s bent so it doesn’t align when we put it together and the top part that comes off is completely misaligned and bent. Of course we have been traveling and are putting it together 4 days past the return window. Ugh. So just beware that it may come damaged.
Delores Dart –
This was a gift. It was made very cheaply. It was very very poor quality. Have bought Charbroil many times and never had a problem. People who we gave this to put in the garage and I found out they have never used it. They really didn’t think it was safe. I am so disappointed.
I didn’t like the fact that it was bent in several places which made it hard to put together.. the only reason I didn’t return it was because we had most of it put together before we got to the big pieces that were bent.
eric yue –
My first grill and used it every 3 days during summer.Easy to assemble!
stephen parker –
Amazon Customer –
Purchased as a gift for my husband and he LOVES IT. It’s very easy to use. The temperature is so easy to control, it cleans very quickly. The side burner is SO nice to have right there. Also having an igniter and not having to toss matches in or use a lighter is beyond amazing. I looked at a lot of grills for him and this one was the best! It checks all the boxes and then some. Don’t waste hundred more dollars for some other brand. Stick with this one. No regrets here! The only thing that wasn’t perfect was assembling it, and that’s because my husband has zero patience to put things together. It was simple, just a lot of steps!
John S –
GREAT PRODUCT – distributes heat evenly, , cooks great, cleans easily , looks nice and best deal for the price.
Joseph HamiltonJoseph Hamilton –
So I’m going to start out by saying I’m not very good with tools. I have also never put a grill together before. This took me approximately 1 hour and 16 minutes to put together. The side tables are sturdy. Build quality is what you’d expect (above average) in a low / medium price range grill. The instructions are easy to read and understand. The screws & etc are labeled and come together in a package. Will update again after a few uses.
Jim SimmonsJim Simmons –
I would have easily given this grill 5 stars. However, there was a large dent in the lid that I assume was there when it left the factory, as there was no corresponding damage to the box nor to the protective packaging inside (see pic). I had to pull off the inner heat shield and pop the dent out from the inside, which removed it all except for a small dimple – but still, very irritating to have to add that step to the assembly process. Aside from the dent, it was easy to assemble as far as gas grills go and the overall quality and functionality are excellent for the money.
Great grill for the price. You’ll get it together with a bit of frustration. Cooks well, very even, good temp controls. A bit smaller than I would have thought for a four burner, but who needs a giant grill.
Kenneth Behrens –

Phil S.Phil S. –
Just assembled this. It’s a bit of a task with lots of steps – takes a couple of hours.Augural grill cooked some country style ribs and they came out great.Anyone stuck on how to install piece M on step 11 search on youtube: “Step by Step How to Assemble Char-Broil Performance BBQ Gas Grill 1 Side Burner Venturi Clip Install” around 8:20 mins in… Another reviewer mentioned this too. The drawing is not very clear on that one. Otherwise the instructions are clear.

IT IS A VERY NICE GRILL AND WAS FAIRLY EASY TO PUT TOGETHER FOR AN OLD LADY…
Amazon CustomerAmazon Customer –
Easy to assemble. No issues and all parts were there. Took me maybe 45-50 minutes total. Someone who is not as handy maybe 1 1/2 to 2 hours.Pros…cooks nice and even heat throughout. The grates season nicely. The top rack goes up with the lid as opposed to being fixed. Makes it much easier to care for the food on the main grates.Cons…not very good construction. Other than the grates, the materials used are thin and somewhat flimsy. The main propane line is crimped. This is a huge issue for me. We have squirrels who eat everything around here. You cannot replace the hose without replacing the side burner assembly. I also have a separate tank storage unit that I can no longer use because I cannot get a longer hose without rigging up some sort of adapter system. I did not notice the bangs on the inside of the lid or bent thermostat probe until after using. This is NOT a shipping defect. Someone on the assembly line just threw it together most likely knowing it was not right.I don’t like reviews that contain shipping issues but because of the weight and size of this item I need to add them. No question that this was hit by a forklift, pallet jack, whatever, even though the carton is clearly marked not to use these in transport. Had some bent pieces which I bent back and everything was fine.Overall it does work adequately. The life span of my previous grills has been @8 years. I do not expect that this grill will last that long at all. In the end, this is a $150-200 grill, not a $300 grill.

Like the grill,, not the delivery. My grill came with the entire end of the box ripped off & slight dent in metal. Very disappointed.
Andrew hamm –
The four metal legs does’nt match assembly. I’ve looked up YouTube videos. The other are black.
Hudson Francis –
This did not even last one summer before it began leaking. I found a gasket between the control valve and the propane supply was split in half. It looked like a manufacturing defect. I called Charbroil and they would not sell me a new one. They wanted me to buy a $45 assembly that included a pressure regulator, hose, and four new control valves. This should be a $1 replacement part. Ridiculous.
Amazon Customer –
The quality of this product was much lower than I expected after previously owning a charbroil grill. I saw another in a local grocery store almost the same exact unit and it was over $100 less. This is probably going to be at 3 to 5 year barbecue were my other charbroil grill lasted 10 years. I would not recommend it.
Daniel Fletcher –
Value – utility and cooking quality
Sean SmithSean Smith –
The grill is AMAZING!! Assembly was fairly easy!! I would however suggest having a second person to help you!! Very detailed instructions! The grates and grease trap are super easy to clean! The grill performs very nicely!!
I’m a 65 year old woman and I assembled this myself. Total time for assembly was less than 2.5 hours. All the pieces were not in my box, but Char Broil was very responsive, so all is well on that score.I love the look. I DON’T love that there are no hooks for hanging utensils and no storage in the cart base.Overall more than adequate for my needs.
Very easy to AssembleGreat Grill

The first time it happened I was cooking three NY Strips. I went inside for a few minutes and came back out and there were flames coming out the back of the grill. The grease had caught on fire in the pan below the burners. I took care of it, cleaned it out, and then tried steaks again the next time. Same thing. I am not sure what the flaw is, but unless I am cooking something like skinless chicken breasts, the fat catches on fire in the pan below the burners and this is quite hazardous. And yes, the grease drain is working.Update: I tried a few more times with lower heat and keeping it as clean as possible and finally gave up. This thing catches grease and just keeps catching on fire burning up everything I cook. This grill is a very serious fire hazard and should be taken off the market.
No tiene ni 6 meses de uso .
The only complaint I have so far, after a couple months use, is the structure of the frame. I guess for he price, its understandable. Its a bit rickety.
Y. C. M.Y. C. M. –
This grill gets plenty hot to perfectly sear meat and other foods. We cooked some steaks at 450 and they came out perfect. It has a side burner that you can use to cook or heat items, or even if you want to keep your BBQ sauce warm. There is also a small rack inside where you could keep items warm. It is compact which I think is an advantage because it is better to keep the heat in, I had a bigger grill and that was a problem. The burners have a nice output and I hope it continues to work like that for many years. It is easy to clean too.It is a nice looking grill except that the gas canister is exposed, as well as the sides and back area, this could be a problem because the underside of the grill is exposed to the elements, you definitely need to invest in a cover to keep it in good condition. The grill is sturdy and solid, comes in a box and it is heavy, it comes disassembled. This by far was the hardest part, putting it together was time consuming and the instructions are good, but there were a few times were they were not clear and it took longer to figure out. There was a step we sort of guessed at and hope that we got it right. All the screws are included, you will need a screwdriver but nothing else, and make sure that you have enough room to set it up. The process is better if two people put it together.Overall this grill will get you BBQ’ing to your heart’s content and it is perfect for small gatherings or a family. Buy a cover for it and it should last a while.
I assembled the grill a few days ago. It wasn’t too difficult. I used it for the first time today. It worked perfectly.
I really enjoy having this grill. It was easy to assemble and offered more than what I could find at Home Depot and more value too.The four burners heat up quickly and the temp is easily controlled and the side saute burner is great as well.Really happy I purchased this!
After a few uses, the ignition broke last summer. My father in law used tin foil to grill fish and twisted the HECK out of the knobs so they were backwards. He single handed lay destroyed it. Lol The first burner just pours propane out and the next 3 burners are barely lit. It’s scary, this is gonna blow up in my face. I stopped using. Looked for replacement regulator parts, out of stock online. Called local grill repair, they said not worth it to repair. But when I contacted charbroil directly they had it covered under warranty and sent me all the parts for free! Very friendly excellent customer service! I’m really happy I can get the grill up and running again. Everything about this grill is beautiful. They’ve really upgraded most of it since my last charbroil 10years ago. Well made. The tank doesn’t sit on it which is annoying but I’ll rig something up.
Deborah Snyder –
Really tired of getting damaged products in undamaged boxes.Update: Amazon took care of this and I really do like the grill so updated to reflect. I love that it’s stainless steel

The installation directions are vague in some instances and do not include any step by stepnarratives. The manufacturer provides poor support services and discourages trouble shooting calls. I waited on the phone twice for over 25 mins for help but never received a response. An email response to my question for help only referred me back to the manual which was not very clear in the first place. Bad buy!
Jason S. Brunell –
I really wish I didnt buy this grill. Every time it rains the grease trap fills up with water and over flows onto the deck or it spills when your tring to empty it. It has a lower amount of heat also. Dont burn food as much but when you want alot of heat, it’s never going to get there. It’s all stainless and looks good but the grease stains on the deck and the mess you have to empty aren’t worth it. I even bolted a sheet of metal across the back and the rain is still getting in. It’s like it is built to be covered always.
Got it on sale. Very happy with this grill. I can grill an entire meal all at once with the multiple burners. I do wish grease trap was front loading.
I order this gas grill from Amazon because what I loved most about it that it gets delivered and it was put together with such easy directions. I love to grill food of all kinds on it and it cooks everything just perfect. I really like the easy ignitor makes it so fast and easy . Very easy to clean up also. Thanks Amazon!
Easy to assemble but did have some flame issues and company responded with solution
Quincy T –
This was my second grill and for some reason the assembly was broken down much more than my first. Took a bit longer to assemble but turned out to be as sturdy as my last one.
Ladies, this is one you can do put together yourself 90-100%. 2 months in and ignitor not working so we’ve been starting with long bic lighter.
Dwain Haworth –
Burner tent was missing. Called brinkman to get the part and they said it is backordered
What’s suppose to be SS is already showing spots of rusting!! Like they say, you get what you pay for. Soon as my phone finishes updating I’ll post some pictures. Here are the pictures. All those little spots are rust!
I returned because I had bought it for my son and he wanted a flat top grill.
E. Cox –
Took a while to get it up and where it needed to be but it was fairly simple to assemble. Heats up fast and had plenty of cooking area.
This BBQ was well worth the money. It was a little bit of a pain putting it together because my hands are a bit larger but it works GREAT
The handle gets really hot. Be careful. Otherwise, nice grill.
Leeroy Clarke –
Would buy it even if it was double the price. No dishes to wash after words. Cooks quickly. Vegetables actually taste good grilled in here. Love it
James L. McIntyre –
The grill had a huge dent in the stainless lid. Since the box was mangled, I only had to inspect the contents where it was obvious the worst blow occurred. I didn’t even take it out of the box. So much for the Memorial Day cookout.
Love this grill
Love this grill! Super easy to clean and very easy to assemble.
Take time to assemble the product. It works and grille’s perfectly. I wish I bought two.
smaller in size but good value and good starter
Diane Kubiniec –
As I was putting my new Char-Broil grill together, I found that I was missing a part.
Linda L. Hughes –
The slide-out catch tray is a nice feature but it doesn’t cover the entire cooking area, so one has to remove the grates to do a proper job. That’s a negative.

Amazon Customer –
I have this grill as a Christmas gift to my son. I am VERY annoyed to say it came missing parts . He had to call manufacturer who will hopefully send parts out quickly. So not worth ordering thru amazon. If i purchased at local retailer it would have been much easier.
Pretty disappointed in a few things.. the line to connect to your tank is not long enough to have the tank where it is intended as it wont reach it…. another feature im not impressed with is the unit on high at best get to 300 degrees at best and with a full working gas tank wide open..the flames do not travel fully down each of the 4 rails…. wish i hadnt spent 3 hrs putting it together or i would return it 🙁 not happy at all
Eston Howard –
Worth the cost but the assembly instructions are challenging.
Kindle Customer –
I am enjoying the grill and it was easy to assemble. My issue was i thought Amazon was always looking out for it’s customer’s for best deal and product. I was disappointed that the grill was on sale a week later at $50. less.
The material the grill is made of is thin. It does put out a lot of heat when cooking. So hot that the cover handle gets very hot, you need an oven glove to open the cover. From the reviews I read you needed a special Phillip’s wrench, but we were able to get it assembled with hex type tool bits and standard ratchet type screwdriver handle. Make sure you buy the grill cover if your grill is kept outside.
Works very well. Heats up evenly and quickly!
Do yourself a favor and get a high quality grill. This one caught fire the first time I used it on high temp (450+). Awful.
Michael G Mangin –
no handle for moving. you must use shelf.
After a handful of uses, we found a tear in the front burner gas line (open flame everytime we turned it), have been trying to get service/replacement part since July 2020. AMZ customer service and manufacturer keeps passing the buck. Will toss away at this point. #avoid

This is a fabulous grill for the price! It did take my husband 2 hours to assemble and he’s very handy. This grill is very large and can accommodate 8 + chicken quarters and then many brats and burgers. Definitely, get this grill!

Hard to put together but we’ll built. Customer service is truly lacking. Needs much improving. Useless.

We are so happy we went with this barbecue!!! Highly, highly recommend this. Weve used it almost every night Since we got it. It did take my husband about 3 hrs to put it together & he’s pretty mechanical. He said some of the screws were in hard to reach areas. But once put together, it’s great. It’s a nice looking barbecue grill & the 4 burners and grill does have a lot of space.
Amazon Customer –
It took me about over 1 hour to put it together. Besides that its awesome!
Amazon Customer –
I’ve had this grill for about a year and I am super happy with it. There are a few quibbles – The top rack for indirect heating slips out really easy, if it was like a 1/4 of an inch longer it’d be great. The side burner only putting out 10,000 BTU isn’t a deal breaker but I wish it was higher. It’s easy to clean, holds a pretty steady temp, really no giant complaints. I think if I did it over I’d have gone for a slight upgrade and got the enclosed tank holder. For the money I think this is an excellent grill.
Grill has more than enough room for family of 4, heats quickly, easy to clean.

Excellent Gift for my Son, he has been using the Grill regularly. Becoming quite the Chef !
The assembly was easy if you be sure to pay attention to the instructions. The chrome look is nice to look when new, however, hard to keep clean. It’s decent but not cheap either considering that there is nowhere to store any sup[plies you may want to have on hand, no hooks (Zero) to hang anything but I was told I could buy my own hooks and put them on, isn’t that nice? . Char Broil saved at least $1 on that deal. There was a problem but the Char Broil rep contacted me and resolved the problem, that was nice.
Thomas W. Drinkard –
The assembly instructions leave a lot to be desired but I was able to figure it out. The grill is very sturdy and works very well.
Mike Carroll –
The grill works great so far but I think it was a little expensive.

If you do decide to purchase this grill, make sure the igniter button is not broken before assembling everything else. It is one of the very last steps and as I went to install the button, I realized it was broken. The plastic is broke and the silicone/rubber was torn, it won’t even stay on the grill, I have to use a lighter to ignite my grill. Seeing as how the grill was basically fully assembled and I didn’t want to break it down for that, I contacted CharBroil directly. After a few emails they said they’d get me a new one once I send my address, but then they stopped responding. That was in February. The grill is great other than that, it is incredibly frustrating to have to remove a grill panel to light it with a lighter though :/.

It doesnt heat more than 300 degrees fahrenheit, something is wrong
It arrived on time, took less than an hour to assemble by myself. I like this grill. Heats up quick, uniform heat, easy to take care of.
Andrew Salyards –
Doesn’t get much better for the price! Easy to put together was grilling on it the same night perfect little grill! Very happy with it
Amazon Customer –
It came with a too small regulator that did not allow a full flame on high. I took the regulator from the grill I was replacing to fix this one. It now works as it should. The hood is lower than the charbroil I replaced and stainless steel grates are not available on amazon. This has a slide out drip tray, if my old charbroil would have had this feature, I would still be using it with the available stainless grates.
Easy to use, cooks well, easy to assemble.
Got this for my dad for xmas. He loves it only compliant is there no being a bottom to hold the tank.
Absolutely great for the price. Bbqs amazing. Even sturdy. Only one little instruction head scratcher.
My husband and I assembled this last weekend and it took a couple hours to do so. First let me say the grill works wonderfully so far, and I have no complaints as far as the grill working. As a matter fact I’ll go ahead and say that the grill works excellent. I like the features on the grill like the warming rack, the hot plate on the side, and especially all the room on the shelves to store salt and pepper condiments things like that.Here’s what I don’t like: THE LACKLUSTER INSTRUCTIONS. This isn’t my first rodeo at following instructions to put something together, and these instructions, while not the worst, were certainly not the best. There’s a couple items I would tweak if I were the designer writing instructions. Just trying to see some of the pictures was really tough at times, and I think if they either made the picture slightly larger, or added a few words next to the diagram, it could’ve saved my husband and I some time, and one mistake.Bottom line: Great grill, crap instructions

This was a great buy. It had no damage in shipping (to south florida).Assembly was not complicated, some of the parts are a bit heavy to maneuver for one person. The heat is nice. the ignition system has an open flame in the front connecting all burners, this will give your food a nice burn if you ain’t paying attention… and ofcourse towards the back the heat is less. But you get used to it and find the way.The side burner is a big plus! I mostly use it to darken some corn and tortillas for the wife.Structurally is a bit unstable when moving it around, but once in place, it feels like other grills I’ve had.I like the side access to the propane tank. My previous grill had it inside doors and it was a pita to bring it in/out.
Amazon Customer –
Worst grill I have ever owned. I grill multiple times a week, year round. It is impossible to control the heat and even with chicken the flare ups are uncontrollable. I literally am going to junk this brand new grill and go back to charcoal. Very poorly designed, poorly built, and useless. Truly a useless piece of junk.
Sharron G. –
Only problem was some damage to the handle but Amazon instantly took care of it. It is for me and family.
EXTREMELY disappointing it cannot connect to our home LP supply!!! This feature has been so common for so long in other grills, we never thought to question whether this grill would be compatible. I cannot see going back to propane tanks, and am sorry we wasted our money on this grill.Update: We bought this 4 months ago. It is junk! One burner burned through and melted its knob. It never heated up as quickly or as well as previous grills. Just ordered a new Weber!

Chris McNutt –
Absolutely HATE the way the propane tank sits on this grill. Every time I move the grill I have to detach the tank so that it doesn’t damage the hose! There should have been a more secure way to keep the tank on it. The little curved bar only helps hold the tank while grill is stationary. The moment you tip the grill to move it, if the ground is not perfectly level the bar pops up and your tank will fall (hopefully not ripping the hose from the grill)…I would never buy one like this again!
I purchased this exact grill in 2019 and we used it constantly without any maintenence whatsoever. My husband doesn’t spend any time cleaning his grill so, therefore, after 3.5 years of weekly use, the burners got clogged and it only cooked on the front of the grill which ultimately melted the control buttons off. The reasonable price and it being a great grill, I reordered another one exactly like it…And probably will in another 3 years. Also, it comes almost completely assembled. All you have to put together is the legs. I would highly recommend this grill over and over.

Bought this for my boyfriend for his birthday. He was pleasantly surprisedand loves it.
No need to write a flowery review for a grill… or is there? It came in a timely manner, and the box was in good shape. No shipping damage or internal damage to any of the pieces. Now into the review!First sunny day I cracked open the box and got to work. The first part of assembly confused me a bit, I had the front panel pieces backwards. After a few minutes of cursing at myself for being so block headed, it was easy sailing after that. I put the grill together by myself, so it is easy for one person to do this. Sure a buddy and a few beers would make assembly much more fun (and probably a tad easier), but you can solo this gig.Once it was together and wheeled over to my pad…. I tossed on the tank grabbed some meats and set to work…. the real work. I’ve been grilling every nice day sense it arrived, and there are no issues at with quilty.So if you are looking for a new grill… everyone needs one…. This is a worthy purchase.
I had been overdue for an upgrade. For a dude like me, this is a chunk of change to spend on a grill, but the walmart piece of junk I bought 2 years earlier had already mostly disintigrated, not to mention the other issues i had with it.I decided to go with a brand that doesn’t change their name every year, Char-Broil.I have not been disappointed.It’s smaller than most 4 burner gills i’ve seen but I like it that way.I can reproduce grilling results too. That tells me it heats evenly when the results are reproducable. I made a steak bobby flay style, and I can keep doing it every time.On my last grill, I could never get the results perfect. I always had to adjust placement and timing and it might work once but then it would change. Not so on this one.Pull your steaks out and let them get to room temp. Set the grill on high and let heat up.Drizzle the steak in olive oil, and grind some salt on it. Flip over and repeat and let set while grill heats up.When grill is ready, put on the steaks, shut the lid and wait for 5 minutes. Flip steaks over, shut the lid, wait 5 minutes. Pull the steaks off the grill and cover with in a tin foil “tent” and wait 5 more minutes.Perfect.
E. Landry –
Easy to put together, fast delivery, works perfect. Love it
It arrived undamaged. I assembled it easily enough. Took time but not overly difficult. And it works!!! All burners even the side one. I was worried from the reviews and I bought it as a gift. I don’t know about the temp control or anything like that because I haven’t used it personally. He loves it. It works! We’re happy!
I put it together and turned it on to find the side burner would not shut off —
The 2 of us –
I have to say over all, I am pleased with this grill. I am charcoal fan and have cooked on some expensive gas grills as well. For the money you can’t go wrong. My goal was to get a grill that would allow me to grill veggies, chicken and steaks without a lot of fuss and this baby does the trick.Full disclosure, I am not super happy with the BTUs it kicks out. So don’t expect to make killer ribs or cook that 100.00 cowboy steak on it. It heats up to 550 easy, but looses a lot once you open the lid.For the quick, grilled veggies and chicken on a work night, perfection.Found it a little tricky to assemble. It’s not an IKEA piece. Took about an hour. No dings from shipping.I would purchase this again considering the cost value vs more expensive grills vs charcoal grills. So happy I can grill up food on a work night.
I’m very happy with this choice. It heats up nicely and grills super well. Nice and hot.
barbara martinez –
We have owned many gas grills, so far this is the best for the price. easy to operate and clean.
I purchased this grill for my rental property. It is difficult to put together because none of the parts are labeled. The instructions call for part #32 or part #33 but since none of the parts are labeled you have to grab random parts and try to match them to the photos. We did it but it was made all the more frustrating by this oversight. I gave this 4 stars because I have a Charbroil grill at my house and they are great but be aware that if you need parts to match the instructions in order to put things together, you will be frustrated with this product.The other problem with this particular grill is where the propane tank is stored. It sits precariously on one of the support bars between two of the legs and is supposed to clip onto a curved bar above it. It does not clip into the curved bar. This is very unsafe as the propane tank is not held up by anything else so it is essentially suspended in mid air and can easily fall, which it did onto my foot after we set it in its place. Really terrible design flaw.
James D. Ratliff –
Heat is even throughout. BBQ chicken is super and always perfectly done. Steak also super easy to fix and grilled veggies also.

After the first time just change the color, and is turning yellow, in 5 months i have used the grill 6 times.. looks really bad , when you use the top grill, all the meat juices are going straight to your floor (see the picture). The stainless steel is rusty already

It is a great deal.
Shaun Rohret –
I purchased this Grill in June of 2019. I use it year round and it is under a gazebo with a charbroil cover, when not in use. I turned it on the other day to warm it up. When I arrived to start cooking all the knobs had melted off…I was lucky it didn’t start a fire. I tried to contact Char-Broil, but they don’t answer the phone, and their website email app doesn’t work.

One knob broken. The gas line has a king in it causing fuel flow to slow. Generally a good product. Just got a bad one.

Flame tubes work well. The upper rack actually works great on this grill. We cook hot dogs on it with hamburgers on the bottom. Both cook in the same time. Side burner holds a gallon pot with no problem.
Amazon Customer –
Kinda big because the size are not collapsible. But otherwise a good grill!
There is absolutely nothing positive so far about this grill. It feels cheap, the instructions are garbage, the design is garbage and it came with missing screws, so I cannot even use it. The side burner design is atrocious and completely unnecessary. There is a reason this was a Prime Day Deal… because it’s garbage and nobody in their right mind should purchase it. I’ve owned Weber Grills my whole life, and in the past purchased a Char-Broiled. Garbage then, garbage now, never again. Your company sucks at making grills.Pros: It turns on, hopefully not blowing up and killing my family in the process with their “side burner” designCons: Literally everything else. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GRILL
Tony Ricci –
So far so good. The grill heats up quick and is well built. Had it for 4 months. Works and cooks great.
Lezlie P. Bourn –
poor quality. very weak one of part in the back it came crumpled and the drawer didn’t fit and amazon simply said that the only solution would be to return it after I spent 2 hours assembling it. nor would it be possible to disassemble and return this item so heavy and large to a ups store. bad experience. I will throw away. Im attaching images of both sides to show how it should be (one is correct and another is defectuve side one)
Three years ago I purchased a Char-broil four-burner plus side burner electric ignition propane grill. I was thrilled to save $300 compared with American brands. The assembly was challenging and took me 3 or 4 hours, but I got it done, All the grill’s features worked fine.Except one. It really did not have a design that allowed the ash pan to be cleaned out. The ash pan was riveted in place below the firebox’s bottom and could not be cleaned efficiently or effectively. The cheap metal was completely rotted out in three years despite painstaking partial cleaning. The ash pan could only be replaced by replacing the whole firebox – $50 and three or four hours to accomplish – and then you’d have an equally unclean able but new flimsy ash pan. So now I can either throw out this gleaming phony bargain or modify it with drill, shears, and saw over a period of ? hours. Caveat emptor, double time.

Love this barbecue grill, especially since it WAS shippable to me in Japan; others such as Weber, did not deliver to Japan. I see where people received this product with pieces bent/missing, etc. Every piece was intact, with nothing missing. It took me just under 3 hours to assemble, but the first 45 minutes were spent on Step No.1, assembling the front panel. The holes are such that you cannot use an electric drill, so I spent 45 minutes trying to get the screws through the holes to secure the panels. Finally figured out the secret; start by pre-screwing the screws into each panel’s holes before you try to connect the panels together. This proved to be the ticket with all the remaining screw holes in the unit, saving lots of time in its assembly. So, when all is said & done, normal assembly should be around a couple of hours. We grilled the entire summer last year, and it is a first class barbecue grill, cooking our meat, vegetables, soups (on the remote burner) just the way we want them. Can’t beat the quality for the price, so I recommend this to someone wanting a nice barbecue grill.
I got this grill to replace the charcoal grill on a new deck because the old grill was leaving a mess and I wanted something easy to keep clean on the inside. This grill has exceeded my expectations on quality, met my expectations on installation. I have a lot of tools fortunately and I keep the little odd tools you get from assembling other items. I never would have been able to put in one of the screws in particular without a small philips 90° angle screw driver… so random but no way you do it without bending the metal if you don’t have something like that laying around. In the end though, to echo most of the reviews, yeah it was difficult, give yourself a couple hours.In colder temperatures I was worried that I may not be able to keep the grill hot enough to adequately cook steak but I was able to cook them in mid-40’s weather no problem at the front portion of the grill. Any colder and I’d go back to the charcoal if I absolutely had to grill.Additionally, the first one was lost in transit and Amazon contacted me to have a second one shipped, I was fine waiting, was in no rush but they were very helpful and sent one without needing me to even log in.Definitely register the grill with Charbroil as soon as you get it, they have excellent customer service as well. I had one item damaged in transit and they sent a replacement part right away. This grill doesn’t seem heavy compared to other grills, but I would guess a very high percentage of these get damaged in transit anyway.

Not hard to put to gather cook very well
Putting the grill together was a little complicated but my boyfriend and I made it work without killing each other in the process. I only request two things to make this grill truly amazing…a gauge that tells you where you are on your LP tank fuel and that the grates sit a little more snugly. When you are cleaning them before cooking, they bang back and forth. Otherwise we have used this grill a LOT since purchase and hope it lasts!
Love this grill easy to cook under direct heat as well as indirect heat

The grease catcher does not catch all the grease.
It will take about a couple hours to assemble by yourself. It is available with a free assembly, but I opted out because I wanted faster delivery. It is a great deal for a gas bbq. Easy to see for cooking. Very sturdy. Excellent bbq that I recommend to anyone.
Easy to put together! Easy to season the cast iron grates. Cooks to perfection!! Love this grill!
DON’T BUY********T H I S…. I S…… A……H O R R B L E. grill. Didn’t even give me a full 30 days to try it. Only gave me 27 days to return it. I’ve used it 6 times. It takes almost an hour to cook a steak. Will not sear and takes forever to get the center hot. Thermostat registers 400 degrees. Thanks a whole bunch for only giving me 27 days to return it after an hour and a half of assembly and undercooked meat. I thought I had a name brand at a decent price point to guarantee a good grill. Not so much. Any thoughts Amazon??? Why the short return policy???
Kindle Customer –
I purchased this “4 burner” with side burner to replace my aging Char-Broil “4 burner” grill also with side burner. I did not even realize until the end of the assembly process, when I unwrapped and slid in the grates, that the grill area had been reduced.The grill area in the old Char-Broil, over the 4 burners, was approximately 17 inches deep by 27 inches long, or about 459 square inches. This new “4 burner” is about 18 inches deep by 21.5 inches long, or about 387 square inches.Mathematically, the new model is 84.3% of the old model in size, close to saying that the grill area is reduced by over 1/6 of the older size.Now, for my wife and I, this alone would be ok had I known about it and had decided to accept it beforehand. The problem will arise on those occasions when we entertain family and friends and use the grill. It will not be enough space to cook every thing at once as we had with the older “4 burner” model, when space was already at a premium. That bit of reduction will make a difference to us, and I have to work this out. Procrastinating, I guess I am.I decided to keep the grill anyway. Aside from not being able to image what I would have to do to return it, needing the grill that very evening, and after suffering through the assembly process on a very hot and humid day, seasoned with a large thunderstorm, I still liked the clean-out feature on this newer, even if smaller model.But I am disappointed with the size reduction in the grilling area. I went back to the Amazon page with the grill, and did find, now, after scrolling down far enough, that Char-Broil states: “The primary cooking surface measures 23-inches wide by 18.5-inches deep.” I’m not sure what they are measuring as the 23 inches includes the side frame around the grill, and the 18.5 is just not realistic – I don’t cook on the frames. But then, that’s not the main point here.So I had assumed that replacing the same brand grill with another “4 burner” surface was enough to let me believe that the grill area would be the same. I was wrong. Just be careful when you order. Perhaps the industry has redefined burner area? Downsizing exists even with grills.
It has taken me a month to dispose of the non-recyclable polystyrene packaging. If I had known this BBQ came with this much non-recyclable material I would not have bought it.
It works perfect!!! Hard to assemble but it worths it.
Received unassembled. Took about 1.5 hours to put together. Easy assembly with good instructions. Only one small attachment I couldn’t figure out how to install, although it doesn’t seem critical to operation. We shall see.A bit light on the material so worried about how long it will last. Cooking performance is excellent. Even cooking with temperature getting up about 550.
I was so excited about the quick delivery of my grill! I did not discover the damage until I took all the pieces out of the box. I was unable to attach the base of the grill to the stand because of the corner being crushed.The box said no return if you open the box. Wow! I was disappointed. I wish I didn’t pay that much for a damaged grill.The grill works fine so far.
Just tried using this grill for the first time last night, maxed out at 300F after 20 minutes. Tank worked fine on other grills so not sure what the deal is.
Had a little difficulty assembling, but we got it done correctly and it works great!
It’s a great grill!

Love this grill. Only wish I could find a nice cover for it. I’m using one that doesn’t actually fit.
As good as the $800 Weber grill. Buy this now!

The Charbroil model I ordered, which is apparently an Amazon exclusive, perfectly fit my needs on paper. I was upgrading(?) from an old Ducane 3 burner that had just basically rusted out, and couldn’t be salvaged.When I first received the grill, it arrived in a large box, which was partially open.I put it on my hand truck, wheeled it to the backyard, and unfortunately had to wait a few days before digging in to build it.Upon unboxing the product, I didn’t notice anything wrong, and was excited to get started on the project.After opening the manual, and getting to step 1, I realized the one of the MAJOR pieces (the left support frame) had been bent during shipping, and there was no possible way to continue assembly. Very disappointing. I called Charbroil, and left a message for their customer service (of course, it was after hours) and expected more frustration to come.Surprisingly to me, they called the next day, and we worked out to register the product, and send me a replacement part.Great – more waiting. It arrived 3 business days later, and was the correct part.I finally got some time to assemble this thing and I have 2 first impressions versus the Ducane it is replacing:The firebox and shelves are WAY more flimsy, using a thinner gauge steel by a fairly wide variance. To the point where I would say that the shelves, if they were holding your utensils, probably couldn’t handle much more weight. The instructions say “do not use more than 10lbs on this shelf” so, your mileage may vary. I am used to some pretty sturdy shelves, so this was disappointing.The firebox, I finally discovered, is also bent. Probably from shipping. In fact, the torsion on the stainless steel is preventing the grill from closing flush with the base.Is that driving me nuts? Yes…yes it is.Does Charbroil need to improve its packing to prevent this? Yes it does.Would I pay a little more for a unit that had some better designed shelves? Probably.The saving grace is that it heats up well, the grate is excellent so far, and food cooks evenly.So, I give it an overall 4 stars. It feels like for the money spent, I am getting decent value. If this is all your budget can handle, go for it.Again, i would have liked the components to be slightly sturdier, but at the price point, I like it. Just dont love it.Good luck.
Great Gas Grill. Side burner is great. The grill heats up rapidly.
Maxwell Edison –
When I first read that this was a four-burner, I thought the firebox would be longer. This only matters if you’re going to use this grill as a makeshift smoker occasionally — you want some distance between a single lit burner on one end and the other end where you put your meat. This is so your meat cooks “low and slow,” as they say. The firebox is not actually that long, though — I’ll still be able to use it for smoking, but if I did more of that I’d want a longer firebox. That said, for grilling, which is what I do most of the time (and where you want everything cooking nearby so you can manage multiple items), the size of this firebox is ideal.The grill is materially OK for the price. It’s not Weber-level solid, but it’s a lot better than cheaper models. I’ve had a Char-Broil like this before and it actually lasted for about six years, which is pretty good nowadays. Just don’t leave it uncovered when not using and don’t knock it around a lot and you’ll be fine. The assembly is a pain, but do-able. The instructions had a couple of steps where I had to look up additional info online because they weren’t written/pictured well. (Most of the instructions are devoid of language, and just use pictures, which isn’t great if you run across a picture that is kind of small and a bit confusing.)Now for the important part — the cooking and grilling. This grill does a great job. The heat gets up over 500 degrees and the grills themselves are solid and impart the heat evenly. There’s enough room to cook a lot of things, and a lot of different things, all at the same time. So it’s perfect if you like to do a lot of cookouts. I haven’t used the side burner yet, but it works fine. It would be very nice to have if you make your own sauce — you can do it while you’re grilling your meat and vegetables.Overall, this is pretty good grill for the price. If you can get it on sale, when it’s maybe fifty to a hundred bucks cheaper, then it becomes a REALLY good grill. By the way, if you mostly are going to grill a few hamburgers and sausages at a time, and only occasionally, there are generic gas grills at the Big Box stores that work just as well for that. Those grills won’t last as long as one like this, but for grilling basics they work OK and are about a third of the price. Just letting you know.
G. Bahlman –
This grill doesn’t get hot enough to sear meat. On the other hand, the side burner is like a blow torch. If you want to cook a steak or you like your burgers seared, this is not your grill. The flame on the grill is too weak to really cook so you have to close the lid and let it bake for about 15 minutes to even get a medium rare steak. You may as well put your steak in the oven because that is how this grill cooks. I don’t know how other people grill but for me the side burner is for simmering beans or chili. This side burner cannot be turned down enough to simmer anything. If you put anything on the side burner besides a pot of water, in 5 minutes it will be burning. I don’t know – this thing gets so many rave reviews so I guess I’m unique in how I like my meat cooked.
Pamela Lairdieson –
This grill is a bit smaller than my old grill, but so more efficient. Had to adjust that the front of the grill is hotter than the back which is reverse of my old grill.
Ron Ron –
This is my 3rd gas grill (also have a charcoal kettle and have had many charcoal grills, smokers, etc.) and this is the best one so far. To me the biggest issue is ‘even heat’ across the surface and this one is very even. My last grill had one super hot area, a couple just hot, and a couple cooler areas. Was a pain, you had to stand there switching positions of the food so none got over cooked too fast. This grill doesn’t have that issue. I also use a pellet smoker tube with it and the food comes out amazing. Very pleased with this purchase.
This was my first time purchasing a grill and after reading the reviews I went ahead and bought it. Great buy and for a really good priceMy wife and I spent 1-2 hrs assembling but not too bad… the grill came with all the parts and tools and we’ve been happy with it
John W Weninger –
The grill and assembly instructions were easy to understand and complete. There were only two bolts that were extremely difficult to put in – Bolts that hold the shelves to the main body of the grill, just behind the burner controls.Great quality for a great price!
I’m very happy with this grill. Took about 2 hours to assemble, but for the most part it was pretty easy and the directions we’re clear. I have used it several times and it works like a champ! Would def buy again.
Really high quality grill. This is just the right size grill, not small and not too big. Took a little while to put together (an hour and a half) but it’s not difficult. For a budget grill, I’m very impressed with the quality. I recommend it to anyone who wants a quality grill for a good price and free delivery. Can’t beat it!
Sturdy Construction and easy to operate electric starter. Good looking grill that is powerful and cooks well. The downside is the assembly. Only pictures in the manual with no written instructions. Several of the pictures did not make it clear as to what was to be done.More like putting a puzzle together. The screws that hold the front panels were very difficult to screw in, takes a lot of muscle or you may want to drill the holes slightly larger.The side tables are not braced so they won’t hold much weight.
I’m sorry we couldn’t get this assembled before giving it to our children. They ended up hiring someone to do it for them. Very nice grill although when you live in the Midwest, a lot of people don’t grill out much.

Easy to setup. Quick prime delivery
Time consuming assembly.
leslie myaer –
follow instructions on assembly, excellent service and product
Like the side burner – can also fry chicken!
It’s beautiful and five stars on every category for the price. It took my husband about an hour and a half to set up and I helped a little.

Works well.Can’t speak for ease of assembly, paid for that service via amazon (which was great).Otherwise, works well.
James R. Briggs –
Took over three hours to assemble. But I love it.

Nice grill, a little under built could of been more sturdy other wise it’s doing a good job.
David C –
Do not buy not worth it what so ever.Missing parts and the first option is for me too buy them.

Amazon and Charbroil both say the grates are porcelain coated cast iron which was the main reason I ordered it. They are bare rough cast iron, not porcelain coated, not rust resistant. I will return it.
This is a very sturdy and functional barbecue pit. No complaints.
Wasn’t too hard for me but I could see how some struggle with it as the pics are not very clear.. Works as intended
My wife and I have been married almost 30 years and this is our third grill. All have been CharBroil. The reason we had to purchase a new one was a wind storm caught our grill cover and knocked over the last CharBroil 2-burner we had destroying the lid hinges. We continued to use it but enough was enough, The old grill was retired after much searching, we found this grill on Amazon at a really great price. The stainless was a bonus as we had been looking at the traditional black and for the price we purchased this one. I have read reviews and articles that deem CharBroil as a lower end budget grill but as I can attest, at an average of 15 years per grill, they are also very durable. I will continue to buy CharBroil as long as they are sold.Now as to features, stainless steel with stainless burners and venturi tubes, tool free grease tray removal, nice wide porcelain grates, porcelain firebox, integrated lid thermometer, and separate side burner (which I do not use) that seems to be popular with grills, and opposite side prep tray. I was really surprised that an empty propane tank was not included as my last two grills had. I have the tank from the last grill for exchange so it’s ok.The only problem I have with this grill is the assembly. The instructions included a part numbering system but the actual parts had no numbers on them. I viewed each assembly step and matched up the parts from numerous boxes to match and was able to complete the task.
Will not buy another CharBroil grill. Purchased one in 2018 and it worked great at first. In a little over a year one of the knobs quit working correctly so we no longer used that burner. Fast forward to 2021 and all the knobs are not working correctly and it needs a regulator. Only the burner is warranted for 5 years. Everything else is 1 to 2 years because I’m sure they know the other parts want last much past that. We were told we can purchase new knobs and a new regulator, but by the time we do that and hire a repair person, we might as well buy a new grill. I expected it to last for at least 5 years. The next grill we purchase will definitely not be a CharBroil.

Dream grill for me!
Got this for my husband so he could feel like a real man. Took him a bit to get it set up but he seems to like it. I haven’t heard any complaints about it yet. We’ve have it for like two months now
Lynn and Tim Van Alstine –
Love the fact the gas tank is not under the drip area. Great price and works well.
It took a while to assemble, but that’s probably me (I’m 73). The unit is constructed beautifully. It’ll probably last longer than me.
Susan W Yacavonis –
Was a gift for a friend
Great grill for the price
Randy Robeson –
Great even cooking, excellent temperature control
James A NelsonJames A Nelson –
Like how it cooks. It’s 3 months old and rusting already, see pictures. Kept in in covered patio. Low grade stainless steel. Got it for a retirement gift. Will go back to my last grill a Beekman lasted 12 years and the stainless steel on still looked new when tossed.

Not sure where all the comments are coming from about the grill not being able to heat up…it takes me 10-15 minutes to get up to 600+ degrees. The only negative I can think of about this grill is that it’s a bit difficult to assemble, especially when connecting the gas line to the side burner…had to use a YouTube video to help me out as the instructions weren’t clear when it came to securing the clip. Would definitely buy this grill again as it’s done the job for me so far!
New grill –
Can put it together with just a Philips screwdriver.
Wow wow wow
Nice to have a working grill again!
I wasn’t expecting the LARGE amount of assembly required. Unless you’ve assembled a few in the past, expect a few hours and someone helping you with the instructions. However their are reasonably good assembly diagrams in the instruction manual.
Celeste S. –
The price/quality ratio was great. It was delivered on time.
Jamal H. –
Assembly was slightly difficult, but Grill workings great!
Laurence Megson –
Grill surface and lid are good. Exposed propane tank and lack of grill tool storage are poor.
Totally unable to achieve maximum temperature due to holes all over the hood.
LK Duck –
Once assembled this grill does it’s job very well. The production designers should be required to assemble these things before they go to final production. Several of the fasteners are very difficult to access. Make sure you have an offset philips screw driver.

Perfect size for our family and it was super easy to assemble!

Like all gas grills that I’ve owned, this one requires assembly. I’m reasonably handy with tools and spent about two hours following the 49 pages of detailed assembly instructions to get this one put together. Perhaps someone younger than I am could assemble this grill faster, but I believe that two hours is a reasonable time to set aside. I liked the way the small parts were clearly labeled in a blister pack. Each section of the blister pack could be opened individually with my thumbnail which gave me easy access to the parts I needed without mixing them up with the parts that I did not need.The gleaming stainless is attractive but, like all stainless, shows fingerprints. When I connected an LP gas tank and fired up this grill, I found that setting all four burners on high could bring the temperature on the cover thermometer to 450 degrees Fahrenheit in five minutes and to 550 degrees Fahrenheit in ten minutes. That’s plenty of cooking power to sear and cook steaks, chops, ribs, chicken and burgers. For most of my cooking projects, unless I’m feeding a large crowd, I can manage quite well using just two of this grill’s burners. My most recent cooking experience using just two of the burners was grilling three t-bone steaks and two veggie burger patties. All were quickly cooked to perfection while I used the upper shelf to warm the burger buns. This grill’s heavy metal grates clean up easily with a grill brush. A small plastic, easy-to-empty bottom drawer catches the cooking grease and keeps it off of my patio. A wire rack assembly under the grill provides a place to store a standard 20 lb LP gas tank, so can be conveniently rolled around with the wheeled grill. The side burner on this grill performs similarly to one of the burners on the LP gas range in my kitchen. I have no complaints about the side burner, which performs well.Unlike most grills that use a piezoelectric clicker to create a spark to light the burners, this one uses an electronic ignition powered by a single included AAA cell which is easy to install and replace. Though this grill’s electronic ignition works well for me, it’ll be interesting to see how well it holds up over the years when exposed to outdoor elements. The manufacturer recommends using a cover, which I bought.When writing a review for this grill, I would be remiss if I did not discuss its value. Therefore I visited several big-box building supply stores to compare the prices of what they offered. I found a black, less attractive but otherwise identical, version of this grill for $169 and four-burner Char-Broil grills with more robust designs priced between $319 and $329. It is my humble opinion, therefore, that when this grill is “sale priced” at $199 it’s a bargain, but at regular price of $299.99, not so much.

I had this sent to my sister as a Christmas present and knowing she at 78 could not assemble the grill I waited until her daughter and son-in-law were visiting to have it delivered. Unfortunately halfway through the assembly, they discover the side portion of the bottom was dented and had to resort to using a hammer to get it to screw together. While she liked the grill she was very unhappy about the dents
This is a good sturdy bbq grill. Only issue I have is it’s on the smaller size. Most grills with 4 burners are bigger.
Came sooner than expected. Easily put together by my husband. Love that the burner tubes can be easily removed for cleaning/maintenance/winter storage. Large grilling area. Every other grill I’ve had, this wasn’t an option so this alone gives this grill an A+ in my book. Overall, a really nice grill. Would definitely recommend.

Difficult assembly, just time consuming. Love finished peoduct

Great grill for a great price
John Johnson –
The directions are very difficult to easily understand. I had to go to youtube for one part. And several screws holes are incredibly difficult to reach with fingers or screwdriver. Had to use phillips head and pliers to get some installed.The shrink wrapped and labeled screws, nuts and other small parts is a nice feature.
Flimsy. The hole grill gets hot, even the lid handle is too hot to touch. Wouldn’t buy again.
Elizabeth Swam –
Easy to cook on.
Keith Westervelt –
I could have bought at much nicer one at Walmart

Amazing looking grill. Best grill I ever had. Stainless steel is nice. Man I got it for 199. Excellent for the price. It was semi easy to assemble took us 1.5 hours. 2 guys. Hard to clean I think. But if u can get it for the sale prices then it’s a deal.
Kaela Haslitt –
Very nice grill. Looks good and operates as expected.
Gift for my husband. He wanted a smaller BBQ. Not to complicated to put together. Great size and looks really nice.
Only downfall of this grill is there is no where to put the propane tank that we’ve found easy.
Amazon Customer –
Nice grill. Good for our 2 family household, but could accommodate more! Great that it came with a heavy duty cover. Better price than Lowes!
Mike Spencer –
Excellent mid range unit

I replaced an old Char Broil grill with this one and I have been absolutely blown away on how well this barbecues steaks and chicken. I only have to turn my steaks once and get a great medium rare steak. The burners are low enough that even the fatty foods do not burn. The grates are very strong and easy to clean. The ability to pull out the cleaning tray for easy discard of waste is the real asset of this grill. I wish I could have had this grill when I was entertaining more as this is the grill for that very event. Thanks so much for a great grill! I’m thoroughly happy with this grill. I probably use this BBQ at least twice a week. I think the only issue I had was in assembly as it was only provided by pictures only. I’m not a great fix it kind of guy so assembly took a little longer as I had to figure things out on my own. Just wish there would be step by step directions but in the end I was able to assemble the best grill that I have ever owned! Thanks again

I purchased this grill for my parents this past Christmas season because my mom had mentioned that were in the market to get a new one. It was fantastic that I was able to make payments on it since, at the time of needing to get it to my house in time for Christmas I didn’t have $250 to drop onto a grill. The payments are decent ($52/month) and I was able to get the grill within two days, just in time for Christmas. My parents have not set it up yet (it’s Feb. in Ohio so that should explain that HAHA), but they were quite thrilled when they unwrapped it.
Matthew A’Hearn –
No stars. This grill sucks. So lame. Twice I have tried to grill a steak and after ten minutes on each side it was gray meat. I had t to put into a frying pan to sear it. I checked that everything was working properly, it just does not, cannot sear a steak or anything else.
Dawn Arenz –
Although it was difficult to put together, it looks great put together and cooks evenly everywhere on the grill.
Andrew Schierman –
It will cook a hotdog, that’s about it. Zero temperature control. It’s hot orits not. No in between. I’ve already sold it to some poor sap and got a real grill. Spend your money and get what you really want cause this isn’t it. I sold it 3 weeks after buying it for a loss, but money gained for a real grill.
Jay D. Greener –
Take a look at the other review reiterating this point – the regulator was spec’d by attorneys. I replaced the regulator ($20 on amazon) and it helps a lot but but burner holes are still small… overall piece of junk.

thing cooks like a champ balanced cooking easy to clean by taking apart putting together easy peasy takes few minutes tops & clean as new

A better job in design/support on side table and 5th burner, need added support to keep level.
