wait and seeI had considered sending a review, but it seemed that I didn't have the time. But now that you've requested one, I will. I've owned Char-Broil Grills since I got married 36 years ago. The one I have now (Professional Infer-red) I bought a little over 3 years ago. I expect to have to replace the grates, and maybe even the burners, but I've never with any of my other grills had to replace the "firebox". And sadly it wasn't the firebox but rather the poorly constructed sheet metal drip tray that evidently is spot welded to the bottom of the firebox. It rusted completely and fell out of the bottom. For an otherwise nice grill, this was poor designed and requires that I buy a whole new firebox. If this is the new Char-broil, I may have to start looking at other brands. While I'm happy with the way it cooks, I shouldn't need to replace the firebox - EVER.

Restore your Char-Broil grill instead of new grillAlthough the exterior (stainless steel) of my ~4 yr old Char-Broil Commercial T-36D was looking pretty good, the firebox and the rivets were rusting out. What to do. I considered buying a new grill but then I found this replacement firebox for a fraction of the cost of a new grill (about 1/4). So after reverse engineering the assembly steps I decided to go for it. I ordered the parts on 5/22 and my package was delivered on 5/27. First, the new firebox was shipped within a separate carton which was packed within a larger shipping carton surrounded by lots of large bubble packing material. So, they did a good job to avoid any damage to this rather large replacement part during shipping. Disassembly of my grill turned out to be tedious but not too time consuming. The only tricky part was removing the Hose Valve Regulator Assembly. You need to 1) remove the temperature gauges that set on the faceplate and 2) remove the 4 self-tapping screws (2 on ea. side) that hold the SS faceplate onto the firebox . Once the faceplate is removed, removal of the valve assembly was fairly obvious. Re-assembly was a bit time consuming, about 2 hrs for me, but not particularly difficult considering I had just disassembled the unit and now was just reversing the entire process using the new firebox in place of the rusted out part. Before I placed my order, I called customer service to make sure I was ordering the correct replacement firebox and they recommended that I order the hardware (nuts/bolts) for the top unit and a hardware pack to ensure I could avoid using worn/rusted nuts/bolts and self-tapping screws during the re-assembly. I think those were good suggestions. Bottom line ... I think this was a good decision. For about 1/4 the cost of a new (comparable) Char-Broil grill I now have restored my existing 4 yr old grill with a brand new firebox and I'm back to happy grilling.
I own a Char-Broil Model 463247412. The Stainless Steel on the outside still looks new. I'm not sure how old it is. At least 4 years I think and the Firebox is rotted out and needs replacing. Your showing it to be out of stock... Now what?

Yes. Model # G515-D100-W1 is the correct firebox for your grill.

I won a model 466270909 that needs its firebox replaced, would the firebox model G515-D100-W1 work with that model ? Also if it does work, could I get the size and weight of the actual box that the firebox comes in ? To carry it on a plane.
