Purchased for my husband. We put it together within minutes. Seems to be very well constructed. Had family over to try it out and we cooked a hen. It was beautiful and tasted very good. Was extremely moist. I generally do not eat any white meat as I find it very dry, but this way of cooking leaves all of the meat very moist and delicious. Family is coming over again and can't wait for us to cook ribs. Can't wait to try it. Clean up was so easy.

first time user. Did as instructions said and read a few reviews and recipes before using. Cooked in exact time recommended. I did make sure the fryer wasn't affected by the wind. Rubbed turkey in peanut oil and then a mixture of spices, put in pan and covered with foil and let marinate over night in refrigerator. The bird came out looking fantastic. The finale proof was that two people said this was the best tasting turkey they ever had. Can't wait to try ribs.

I've only had the Big Easy for a couple of weeks but it has performed FLAWLESSLY.! After you get your meat ready and into the Big Easy, all you have to do is wait for a perfectly cooked turkey! I've also done chickens in it, and all I get from the family is: MMMMMM! This thing is awesome, the whole family is impressed!
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 my grill for two weeks now and it's the best thing ever. I have even grilled vegetables on it as well.

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.
I ASSEMBLED MY NEW PATIO BISTRO YESTERDAY IN ABOUT 1 1/2 HOURS. THE INSTRUCTION BOOKLET IS ACCURATE, BUT ONLY SHOWS PICTURES, THE MAJORITY OF WHICH ARE EASY TO FOLLOW. I NEEDED HELP ATTACHING THE LID BOLTS, BUT DID THE REST BY MYSELF. ONE FEATURE PUZZLED ME. THERE IS A CHAIN WITH ATTACHED WIRE HANGING IN THE BACK OF THE BARBECUE WITH NO EXPLANATION AS TO WHAT IT IS OR IF IT NEEDS TO BE ATTACHED. I CALLED HOME DEPOT AND THEY EXPLAINED IT IS USED TO LIGHT THE BARBECUE WITH MATCH.

I've had this grill for a few months now and it is great. I've had some difficulty trying to ignite and had to resort to the lighter method but other than that no problems. My food no longer catches on fire but I can't say that the flames don't jump up with drippings. The grill part is hard to clean but that is to be expected since it's not an open grate. Overall, good product.

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!
I like this table top model because I've used many others of the same type and this one works best. The price, on sale, was a good value. Most other makes aren't as well designed and cost lot more, like Weber. This unit also gives a good and spacious cook surface. The only issue is it is hard to get the temperature low enough on for cooking slow or baking. My solution is to prop open the lid to regulate the temp. If you had an adjustable vent or a way to safely open the lid up to 1 to 4 inches
... read more it would be perfect. All in all a very nice unit-- it could be the best one available with a few small changes..

Solid Construction - Great Performance
Bought this just prior to Jeep Beach. Grilled up 10 Pounds of Picanha Steaks. They were delicious. The grill performed fantastically even though the fat is heavy on these steaks so you need to keep it closed to avoid flare ups. Can't wait to try some slow roasting items. Would have given 5 but cleaning the grill after use is a challenge due to the design of the cooking surface. The carrying case is great to pack or store...

Nice little grill
Love the grill but the value is poor. I bought the hose to hook to a tank and was using it that way; when I left for my RV trip I desided to use the little tanks. The value woulded shut off. I had to go buy a 5lb tank and hook the hose back up so I could shut the gas off at the tank. The value doesn't regulate the flame eityher.
