Rated 5 out of 5 by from A long time to liking...... In late February or early March, I purchased the Patio Bistro as we have a townhome with a wrap around patio. The bistro looked compact and when it arrived I assembled it myself with virtually no problem. The automatic ignitor never worked and after repeated contact with Char-Broil, I did finally receive the correct part and to date it is now working like a charm. My husband has a tremor and the button ignitor is what he needs vs. match lighting. This product is excellent and makes a killer steak. The service at Char-Broil while sometimes was frustrating to get the right part, was good. They really never let the ball drop. It may have taken some time, but I gotta admit, customer service was excellent. I would recommend this company in a heartbeat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great grill i have owned this grill for a couple of years and except for one minor ignitor issue it's been the best grill i have ever owned! No more wasting gas like i did with larger grills. One burner is plenty and its surface is big enough to grill four decent sized steaks. ill admit cleaning is more involved but the cooking rewards are worth it. Unless you have a large group to grill for this is the unit to get!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Surprises come in small packages This by far is one of the BEST grills I have ever owned. It can handle any grilling task you have. It does a great good on Fish, BBQ Chicken, Hamburgers even Pizza. With this grill I have never had a cookout disaster...and clean up is a snap! After watching me use this grill several of my friends also bought one...and now they grill like a pro!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Grill I have ever owned!!! I live in a condo and needed a gas grill that did not take up to much space. The grill size is perfect and you can cook for up to 6 people on the grill area. The TRU infrared cooks everything so well. I really like how the small holed grate keeps from flare ups. I have had it 2 seasons and use it a couple times a week and have had no problems with the product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Char-Broil looks good, like the burner -- but ignition system doesn't work and we must light by hand - the is the second ignitions system we'll installed and just gave up

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is a huge disappointment I have had three Char Broil Patio Caddys that were all great. This year I replaced a Patio Caddy with this and it is miserable. The whole TRU Infrared thing is messy and never cleans up well. I am very dissatisfied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pluses and minuses We had a Char-Broil grill for many years and we are comparing the two. The new one is easier to start and we like the hinged lid. We don't like the small slits in the grate and it is not easy to remove.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Parts do not last Bought this grill two years ago. I really liked it and it works great but the parts are rusting away. I coated the grill itself with oil as suggest and the burner parts. It did not matter. They all disintegrated and fell apart. Even the bolts that hold the top hinged cover rusted through and the cover fell off. It is a good idea in theory but is really a piece of junk. Very disappointed in this grill. Why make it out of parts that will rust? We customers don't intend on using this indoors. I am putting it on the curb. Too costly to replace all the rusted parts and bolts.

Where do you put the wood chips in barbecue? Also, want to buy a cook book using the infra red method.

Wood chips can be placed directly on the cooking grate in this Patio Bistro. All of the recipes and cookbooks that we have available can be used with our infrared grills.
