Portable CB500X® Charcoal Grill is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Grill I received this grill for as a gift several years ago. It has been the best portable grill I have ever had. The construction and durability of it is top notch. I seen the review with concerns about the plastic caps. I used this grill weekly if not more than that for years and never had a problem. I don't take time to write reviews on things but I felt like this grill was worth the time.

what rotisserie goes with the Portable CB500X® Charcoal Grill

Asked by: nancybu
We are on our 3rd CB500X and, Yes, you can use a rotisserie with it. You must first take the cooking grids out. Don't know if they still sell the rotisserie, it was an extra feature that we ordered and we use ours for Cornish Game Hens.

There is a large round hole on the bottom right side with three small screw holes around it.  What is this for?  Is there a missing damper?

It appears that this grill will accept a rotisserie, will it and do they make one specifically for this model or one that will work ? Thanks in advance.

Asked by: Per2467
We apologize, but this CB500X is not able to support a rotisserie.

Do you have or do you have  recommendation for a stand that would go with this grill.  I can find one labeled Weber, lol.

My custom cover, that I ordered with my CB500X caught on fire, need a replacement, like the original with side buckle snaps. I could not find them on your web page.

Asked by: Frogranch
The closest cover that we have for this grill is the Grill2Go Custom Grill Cover. This is model # 4187018 and it is available on the Char-Broil site. This cover should fit your grill.
