Faulty productThis will be my third ignition switch within the last 12 months. The original and the replacements have all fallen apart very quickly. It's just poorly made plastic and doesn't hold up to even casual use. It's spoiling what otherwise seemed like a good grill. It's not expensive to replace, but the shipping costs, handling time, and time to install the replacement all add up to a major headache.

Now on our third switch!We're very happy with the grill itself, but their engineering dept. definitely needs to re-design this self-destructing switch! And yes, I've been in touch with their very courteous and impressively responsive customer care dept. about it.
Part of the problem is that the plastic nut and threads don't only hold the switch in place, for which plastic would be fine, but also have to support the weight of the metal 'heat shield'. And if the nut is tight and the metal expands from the heat even fractionally, that would tend to snap the fragile plastic threads, which is maybe why they break so easily and so often (two so far, in short order!).
I suggested to them that the shield be welded or screwed to the inside face of the broiler, but they should probably also make the igniter's housing and nut out of metal instead of plastic. OK, so maybe it would then cost twice as much ($10 instead of $5!), but we unhappy reviewers would STILL be way ahead dollar-wise, plus we'd all have been saved a whole lot of unnecessary aggravation!

Igniter Switch just falls apartThis grill is great--no flare-ups, cooks well. However, the igniter switch just falls apart. One day it works and the next day it comes all apart. This is the second time I have replaced the switch in less than one year. Part cost $5.00 but with shipping and handling, gets rather expensive.
Perhaps another company makes a better product.

out of the box brokenI bought the grill at home depot. Took 2 1/2 hours to put this thing together, only to find out the igniter button was broken. Im extremely upset, now home depot wants me to return the whole grill. No way im gonna put another one together.. reading all the reviews about the button is starting to make me think I made a bad decision.
There's nothing quite like the char-grilled taste of steaks, burgers and vegetables cooked over charcoal. But firing up a charcoal grill can be a little tedious — and frustrating. It doesn't have to be! Follow these simple steps and you'll be up and cooking in no time.
Any grill master has a collection of BBQ gadgets they swear by. From wireless thermometers and formed grilling racks to stackable ovens and even wifi-enabled grills, the BBQ world has adapted modern technology to this age-old practice.
There is one question that we continue to hear from avid grillers: can you hook up a propane grill to natural gas? You should never hook up a propane gas grill to a natural gas line without first converting it to run off natural gas. Once you do, it's a relatively simple process if you have the proper tools and know-how.
