An Electric Smoker for the Digital Age. Learn More!
Just purchased for Canadian Thanksgiving. Seasoned the unit as per instructions. I used canola oil, 2 sessions about 25 minutes each and I had a beautiful bronze cooking surface. Rubbed a 13 pound Turkey with olive oil, then seasoned with smoked paprika and salt. Pre-heat the unit for 10 minutes, dropped in the Turkey and cooked for 2 hours until meat thermometer read 170 degrees in both breasts. AWESOME, Brown crispy skin, juicy meat with fabulous taste! See for yourself, this really is EASY! ... Oh and I coated the basket with canola oil using a paper towel, bird didn't stick, clean up easy. Last thing, drippings made a fantastic gravy.
We love it. It is Totally Awesome. We use it for just about everything. I am surprised that it is not advertised more, especially during the Holiday Season. The cooking channel still shows how to use the deep fryer with oil. With this fryer the chance of getting burned is slim. My husband has some gloves that he uses to reach in and get the turkey basket. No burning. We bought one for my brother-in-law and he too uses it frequently.
I helped fry turkeys for 11 years on Thanksgiving at our church for the local food bank and loved the taste but didn't care for the cleanup. I have seen these at the local stores for years and this year I decided to purchase one. I read countless reviews and liked what I was reading. It was easy to assemble and lit on the first try. I test-drove it with a chicken and the result was very good. I did a 13lb. turkey on Thanksgiving day and it was every bit as good, or better, than an oil fried ... bird. Clean up took me ten minutes. I told my brothers, neighbors and friends about this fryer and will recommend it to anyone who asks.
Love this grill. However I can't find the fire box add on that attaches to the side. Anyone know where I can get one?
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!
I've had mine for over 10 years. I worn it out I've used it so much. It's still great.
this little grill packs a punch! it is hot! its fast! i love it! though it does create a lot of smoke when grilling fatty or oily meats, so may not be good for a small patio.
I bought this just about a 10 month ago for our 3 week trip around the 4 states of Arizona, New mexico, Utha & Colorado. Used it every night of the trip. I am also just about out somewhere every weekend camping. I take it everywhere with me. I am told by everybody who uses it that they are going to buy one as it cooks very well in little time at all. I love this little BBQ & even use it at home when it is just me. I think my home BBQ doesn't like me any more.
I have bought grill for the patio about every 5 years but I have bought one for camping almost every year. Both were complicated to set up and didn't really work that well. The Char-Broil TRU-infrared Grill2Go has taken the place of both. There are a very few parts and they are easily replaceable and with two quick snaps of the buckles, it it ready to go.
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!
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!
I bought this grill two years ago in April. In July of the same year I got a notice there was a defect on how you started it. I was set apart which I had put on I felt they should have reprice the grill since it was brand-new. Now this part has gone bad and I don't know what to do I guess I need a replacement part that I don't know who I will get to put it on this time. Please answer.m
