This grill is easy to set up and use. Just attach a propane tank to the underneath hose (make sure the connection is tight, no cross threading). Then turn the dial to the "Ignite" position then push the button and it should Ignite. Be sure not to have face or or body or clothing too close while you're igniting it. After it lights, turn the dial to your desired cooking temperature. Lastly, throw a nice juicy Ribeye on and cook it to perfection.
I bought this grill 12 years ago. It has been the best grill ever. I do not even know of anyone who has had a grill this long. I have never had to replace the burner or anything. the outside is in great shape. It is cast aluminum and does not rust. The top gill did burn through about 2 years ago. I replaced it with no problem. Everything else is still original and still working great! If an when I ever replace this grill, I will definitely buy another just like it. Performance The overall performance of this grill has been great. I have no complaints. Everything works perfect. Versatility Very versatile. I can cook for my family of 3 very easily. I have on occasion, feed a couple extra people. I can cook variety of foods and love the two burner feature for even more versatility. Ease of Use Very easy to use. The wheels make it easy to move around to different locations. The two burners make it easy to regulate cooking temperatures for different foods. Also very easy to light. Ease of Cleaning Somewhat easy to clean. I just scrap and burn off before each use. Durability Very durable! My grill part is made of cast aluminum and has really held up, even when left out in the weather. Great grill. Design Very good design, which makes it easy to use and hold a large amount of food.
This grill was good, great for space purposes, however there was no space to put the propane tank and it rusted within 6 months. I expected it to last longer. We enjoyed our time being able to grill outdoors with it, however it just seemed like this grill kept falling apart. I wanted something that was easy to clean, cook on, and great on space. All I got was great on space. The grill bars themselves would not come clean, no matter how hard I scrubbed them, the juices from the meats would stay on them. When we would cook vegetables they would stick, even with having a grill non stick cooking sprayed on. We noticed that after using this grill for about 3 months, with it being placed in the same place, no movement, it would start to rattle. It was like to screws were coming out. Thats when we first started to see the rust. I scrubbed the rusted parts, however they still came back. It just got worse from there. By the end of the first year, this grill was completely rusted, the sides were falling off, and the propane tank had to be held up by a small side table that my friend put next to it so that it would be supported. Durability There was no place to put the propane tank except the ground, so when we would move it it would drag or almost fall off. Should have a tray for it.
We have had very good results with this grill. I like having the two different areas for grilling. We use the higher shelf for grilling vegetables and use the lower one for meat. Performance It has been very easy to use, We have no complaints, it is quick to start and does a good job of grilling everything evenly. Versatility It does not have a side burner but the top shelf makes it easy for grilling veggies of all kinds. Ease of Use IT is very easy to use and quickly lights up. Ease of Cleaning The shelves come out making it easy to scrub and clean them. The inside is also very easy to clean out. The drip pan underneath makes it easy to clean up afterwards. Durability The grill itself has been very durable but the two shelves on the side are a little on the wobbly side and do not seem real durable. They tend to move back and forth and do not hold up real well. Design I really like the design with the two areas inside for grilling. I also like the two outside shelves for sitting things on before and after the grilling.
I love this grill. I was looking for something to keep at our cabin and ended up buying this awesome gem. The grill has been a great investment. We use it all the time. I have this item for about 1 1/2 years and I have no complaints. The grilling area is perfect for our family and the 2 burners do just as good a job as any other high end grill. I will probably buy the same grill when this one needs to be replaced.

My Char-Broil- BBQ Grill is a wonderful place to do my outdoor cooking. i can bbq whole chickens with terriyaki sauce, steaks, hamburgers and hot dogs. I often have parties and my family and friends love everything it cooks. When we had our summer bbq party this year, we celebrated on July 4th...so it was a double occasion. we even made shrimp ka-bobs and it was the hit of the party, along with the hamburgers and hot dogs (our theme was "America.") How much more American can you get than by serving hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, watermelon, bakes beans, chocolate covered strawberries and pastries for appetizers. i really like my new BBQ grill because it is so easy and it is even on wheels...so i can move it anywhere i want. it comes with a propane gas tank and is very easy to turn off and on. i put thin layers of protection on the grill so I can keep it looking fresh and new for a long time.
We got our Charbroil grill about 2 years ago and I have to say it is one of the best grills we have ever had, and we have had alot!,,,,,,the food always cooks evenly and fast. I never have a problem lighting it either. We love that you can see how hot it is from the temperature gauge. The side burners come in so handy when you want, say, baked beans or any side dish with your food. I really reccomend this grill.
We bought this grill off of a craigslist.com ad after the family had been using it for years. They sold it to us because they were replacing it with a super fancy one, but the thing was still working great. We used it for a year and when we moved across the state, we just left it as a gift for the next family to move into our rental. At least three years is a great track record for a simple grill! There are two shelves (low and high) for things that need to be cooked at different temperatures. There are two (left and right) burners so if you are only cooking a few things you can conserve propane by only lighting one burner. There are "counter tops" on either side for putting plates or sauces. One has hooks for hanging your grilling tools, which is helpful. If you're just looking for a down-to-earth grilling solution and don't need all the extra gadgets like a side-burner or storage shelves this is a perfect little grill. It is also compact for those with small patios.

I love this grill. It is the perfect size for everyday use. I have never owned any other brand of grill other than Char-Broil. When I moved across the country last year, I left my old Char-Broil behind and replaced it with this grill. It has classic Char-Broil quality but did not break my grill budget. The quality and value are remarkable. It doesn't have all of the extra burners that some grills have and I never used. The cooking area is perfect whether you are cooking for one or a crowd. It lights easily and consistently and heats up in just a few minutes. It is easy to clean. Mine sits outside year round and has held up to the elements very well. I call it my no frills, just want to cook grill. I would recommend Char-Broil to anyone and have told all of my friends about my satisfaction with this Char-Broil in particular. Many of my friends with other brands have had to replace parts on a yearly basis or have had to replace their grills every few years. Char-Broil parts are available anywhere that the grills are sold but I have never had to replace a part. The grills seem to lat forever.
