Charcoal Barrel Grill

Charcoal Barrel Grill

Model #15302030
Size 625

Charcoal grillers will love the Char-Broil Barrel grill. This durable grill features adjustable fire grates and dampers, as well as a removable ash pan. The grates are cast iron, which are great for searing. It also has a swing-a-way warming rack, temperature gauge and a handy side shelf. Move the grill easily with rolling casters.

  • Adjustable fire grate

    Control the heat level at the cooking grate by placing your charcoal pan in one of several preset positions.

  • Cool Touch Handle

    Get a firm grip on your grill lid, while protecting your hands and fingers from the heat.

  • Lid-Mounted Temperature Gauge

    Keep track of pre-heat status and monitor the inside temperature of your grill.

  • Swing-A-Way Warming Rack

    This warming rack swings back when you open the grill lid, so you can easily reach the food on your cooking grates.

  • Damper

    Control the grill temperature by opening and closing the dampers. To burn hotter keep the damper open, to lower the temperature, partially close it.

  • Side Shelf

    A handy place for your grilling tools and cooking accessories that doubles as extra workspace while you're cooking.

  • Wheels

    Easily move your grill around your backyard or patio.

  • Warranty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent all around I bought this grill one year ago, it has been great so far. I bbq year round afew times a month. Holds enough coal and hase enough space to grill for six people easily. I also used it as a smoker for ribs. I would rather an offset but it did the job nicely. Excellent buy, just keep it covered.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love my Char-Broil Barrel Grill! But,,, I live in Washington State. Even though my grill is covered year around. The meat & coal grates rust & fall apart way too easy. Love the durability of the of the shell though. Might have to go back to Webber???

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well for the money I've been using this grill for a few years with no major issues. As others have said the iron grates rust quickly as expected, mine also cracked so I threw them away and cut a piece of expanded metal to fit. I also replaced the lower grate with expanded metal as the old one warped with frequent use. You really need to season the iron grates with vegetable oil to keep them from rusting, just like a skillet. I modified mine with an actual temperature gauge above the vague one and added a fairly large smoke box below the grill so I can smoke jerky, ribs and other meats with it now. Works better than an offset for sure, wish they'd make them like this. Not bad for the price, easily modified to make a real solid rig. Working on a rotisserie for it now. Cons: little wobbly until you weld it solid, the upper rack mounting is horrible (Replaced the 2 bolts with a single piece of all-thread), end caps for the side shelf all fell out, temp gauge is vague.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good basic charcoal grill. Had the grill a month. Use it 2 times a week. Works great. The handle should be thicker - you will need a glove - the steel coil is too thin. For some reason the grill did not come with the grease can holder.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Parts broken We bought this geill and the part that holds the grates were broken straight from the box. It is still usable but we can't adjust the grates. Won't ever be buying another one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from rusty grates I bought this grill a little over a year ago. The grates rust really quickly. Char-Broil sent me replacement grates. These grates were rusty with in one use. I only cleaned the grates with a non metal scrub pad in the kitchen sink. I would not recommend this grill.

This grill is not able to support a rotisserie. However, the Grill Infusion Cooker (model # 8999850) will work with this grill.
