Large Charcoal Barrel Grill

Large Charcoal Barrel Grill

Model #12301714
Size 840

Charcoal grillers will love the Char-Broil barrel grill. With 568 square inches of cooking space, you can grill for an army. It 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.

  • Removable Ash Pan

    Convenient pull-out drawer catches ash for simple clean-ups when you're done cooking.

  • 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Own the Summer! I have had this grill for over a year and I love it! You have room for two full racks of ribs or a boatload of chicken and burgers or a celebration of veggies that can cook at their proper temperatures thanks to two levels of grilling or smoking genius!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from nuts might be nice if it came with the 32 flange nuts required to assemble. hardware pack is here, no 32 nuts, or space where there ever were 32 flange nuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Second One I bought this bar-b-que because i bought one in 1998 and it lasted 16 years. It does great ribs, fajitas, steaks, smoked sauage, and burgers. It has all of the features that I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Grill This grill cooks food better than I could imagine. I have grilled steaks, smoked ribs, chickens, turkeys, and all kinds of vegetables. It burns evenly, helps the coals stay hot longer and shows no sign of wear even after a year.
