Charcoal Grill 580 is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amazing cooking! But the screws are too soft. I want to start with the positive. My wife told me the steaks were above restaurant grade. So, yes. Amazing steaks! I love how I can control temperature with the hand crank. However during construction, I was a bit frustrated with how easily the screws stripped and how the nuts weren't threaded properly. But! Once assembled, it was a thing of beauty. I love the adjustable heat tray!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better air control for better temperature control I got this a few weeks ago and finally got this thing fired up. It has two vents on the bottom and two vents on the top for better temperature control. Also has an adjustable rack that can bring coals closer (or farther away) to the cooking rack.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wish I could add pictures! Purchased this grill at a local brick & mortar on fathers day for my husband. I wrote the following review on July 1st on amazon and updated it today after our 4th use of the grill the updated amazon post has pictures of what the grill looks like TODAY after only using it 4 times! PROS: Love that you can adjust the height of the coals to get a good sear or go all low and slow. LOVE the briquette tray - seriously, ALL BBQs should have this I really like having the upper grill - which is great for veggies It has a TON of space. It may look small, but the space on the grill is fantastic - I had 10 full size chicken breasts on there with room for more. CONS: The instructions are a pain the rear - nothing but pictures with numbers and the parts are not labeled. The tray is meant to slide easily into the bottom. I found it to be slightly too small, it did however sit on the bottom of the grill - which required some monkeying around. Cleaning that will be a pain - hopefully the briquette tray is the only thing that required a lot of regular cleaning. Several pieces are held together with clips. In most cases this isn't a big deal - but the clips supplied are slightly small for the tray adjuster and fell off the first time we used it - even after being twisted together with piers to keep it in place - have to mark the handle so it doesn't get over twisted.... The first time we used it the paint on the OUTSIDE of the lid began to bubble then peel off - I'm used to carbon peel on the INSIDE of the lid, never saw a grill lid peel on the outside! Overall, I'll stick with this one for a while even though the paint thing bugs me, mostly because I already recycled the box and I'm too lazy to take it apart to take it back as defective. Here's the update, and why I no longer like this grill: By the 4th use the plastic on the damper handles has melted, the temperature gage is turning brown and clearly discoloring or being damaged from the heat, and the paint is REALLY peeling off the lid and sides. 4 uses, less than a month and the grill looks like it's been sitting around in the weather for years. Our last grill was a charbroil and it lasted ages. I am so disappointed I likely wont buy another from this brand when I replace this one - which again was a gift for my husband.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful on the outside but beware! Took me 6 hours to assemble and I've been putting stuff together for years. The directions have no words, only pictures. The screws on the smoke ventilation on the sides don't screw in properly. Also, one of the side pieces was scratched and the coal assembly that holds the tray was sticky and had been previously used. I haven't used it yet but it's too much trouble to take back. Hopefully it works well after all that. Very frustrating!

Is it possible to remove the legs and side tables to use as an insert or built in grill

Asked by: frank3324
This Charcoal Grill 580 should have at least three feet around it at all times. We do not recommend attempting to use this grill as a drop-in model.

How big is the grill surface? I have the Model #15302030 and the time for a replacement is near. Thanks.

Asked by: sepolvora
This Charcoal Grill 580 has a primary cooking surface of 400 sq. in. and a secondary cooking surface of 180 sq. in. This would be a fantastic replacement grill.
