    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.

    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!

    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.

    Nice grill, needs owner modification to be great
    I got the CB940X after finishing an outdoor kitchen and wanted something nicer looking than my ancient yet trusty Mecco. I've used all sorts of charcoal grills (about 50 years grilling now) and I like the flat bottom ones with adjustable height. This one is so heavy the packaging got banged up (seems to be a common issue), although this one was trucked from the OEM site (winter sale 25% off, free shipping). It really helps for two people to move and put together, the trucker would only drop it in the driveway. Pros, it: - has cast iron grates, which sear and hold temperatures excellently. - seems to hold temperatures except around the edges. - it looks super nice. - it's the most heavy duty material I've owned, excepting a custom made smoker/grill. - the cast iron grill lifting tool is pretty cool, looks nice but I'd be careful about dropping it on concrete. Cons: - the charcoal grid has some major design flaws, FOR THIS PRICE IT SHOULD BE BETTER, coals fall off the end and the heat does not go to the edges well. I grilled a bunch of veggies and kabobs last time and had to keep rotating them around. Come on guys, spend an extra buck and fix this common complaint. At first I thought I was sent a charcoal pan for a smaller grill. - the charcoal grid slants up at the front and back, and coals or small wood lengths won't reside there. - the handles that raise the charcoal grid stick out of the lid when it comes down (at the higher settings) and can get pinched (I just bent them in a bit). - The charcoal handles for raising the grid are just hooks hanging on the charcoal pan wire and there is so much play the grid left to right that occasionally a handle will pop loose from the tray and the charcoal tray will drop down on that side, resulting in charcoal going everywhere and messing up the spread, with a full load cooking on the grill top this seems sub-optimal. - the coal door is just a blazing hot tab, on the cheaper models they have a spring coil handle. - the cast iron grates slide around front to back because of the back edge of the lid leaves slack when opening, this is minor but jostles stuff around. - the side trays that hold the wood carving blocks have round head screws that the wood rests on, they need to be flat heads so the wood surface is stable. - they make less expensive units with an external crank to raise and lower the charcoal grate, this one you have to put on gloves to manually raise the cooking grate. - the venting is unusual, it appears to have rotisserie holes but does not accept one, no lower venting (like on their cheaper units) - no tool hooks, Really? The wood carving blocks are a type Chinese pine, but over there it is a "sacred pine" used in temples because it smells nice. So I've bent the fire raising handles so they don't get stuck, it was easy to bend and did not need much. I want to put a spring covered handle on the fire door like they do with their cheaper models. I want to switch to flat heads that the wood rests on then the wood will be stable. I did add some webbed steel to the edges to keep the coals from falling out and increase usable capacity. I did bend the fire grate handles around the fire grate wire so they have a positive grab and can't jump out. All in all an excellent grill, just needs some tuning

    The Best Charcoal Grill Ever---
    This is my second 940. My first lasted 18 years and I abused it. This one is better than my first one. It's easy to cook on and I use it to grill and smoke. This past weekend I cooked a pork shoulder for 11 hours on Saturday and hamburgers on Sunday. It is easy to access and control the fire and easy to clean up. It has outstanding quality.

    Best charcoal grill I have ever owned!
    Very pleased with this grill. Big enough to smoke racks of ribs whole, perfect for indirect/searing also. Plenty of room to grill an entire meal at once. Holds temperature with few adjustments.

    Combo Gas/Charcoal Grill - 463724514
    This is a good grill for the price. Arrived via Old Dominion freight, well packed in a box on a skid. The box is very very heavy and you will need 2 strong people to move it. We removed all the components we could and it was still heavy. The instructions are well written and it took 2.5 hours to put together, including beverage breaks. My only complaint is that the metal seems a bit flimsy and the drip pans don't look they will hold up. Good even heat and fast to get to 600F. Haven't used the charcoal side yet.

    GREAT COMBO GRILL!
    I bought this one to replace the one I bought in 2000, it was still going, I had replaced the burners and the grate, but it still looked good, the Red porcelain cover was still sharp and stood out. UNFORTUNATELY, 2 wind storms did it in, the first one flipped it and dented the cover, a week later the next one flipped it again and busted the grates and damaged the burners, I set it out at the curb when I got this new one and a neighbor snagged the old one within an hour and rebuilt it, said it was beautiful. So as the old one lasted so long I said to my self, gotta get another Char Broil. Love the combination gas and charcoal, have used both for different cook outs, very happy with the way it cooks, and the way it operated, especially nice is the crank to raise and lower the grate for the charcoal side. The 3 burners on the gas side makes this grill very versatile, the rack over the grill is perfect for doing baked potatoes and the side burner is great for cooking side dishes. In a word.... GREAT!

    Best of both worlds!
    I love this grill. When I have time I use the charcoal side, but if I'm pressed for time, like after work, then the gas works great.
