I like the amout of grill room it has. Three seperate grates, so I can cook as little or as much as I need to. Also has a warming rack - I just used to cook hotdogs with - way cool! I don't like the access to the carcoal area though - I have to raise the grates in order to put the charcoal in. Although it does have a charcoal access door, it is small and does not give the the access I want. It has two side shelves, which I like very much - the more the merrier I say. I do not like that there is no place to hang my bar b q tools while cooking, I have tried laying them down on the shelves (too messy) and hanging them on the charcoal access door handle (this is not bad actually).
