When it says lil', it definitly means it is little. I used this grill only a couple of times before giving it away. It is good for one to two people, but nothing else. It is not very sturdy, and a strong wind would make it wobble and shake. The legs seemed very unsturdy on the grill, too. The entire grill just had a cheap look to me. I didn't want to spend a fortune on a big grill, and this was my first choice because of price. Now I wish that I had chosen something else. It isn't worth the trouble or the hassle. Food is very slow to cook on the grill, and since you can't get a lot of charcoal in there at one time, it is likely you will need to stop cooking and replace it before all of your items are through cooking. Performance Cooks food slowly. I find that food in the middle is always done while that on the outside is still not even close to being done. Durability Very lightweight and looks cheap. Design I do not like the design. It looks cheap and feels that way, too.
