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.

Very nice grill
I bought the grill to take in our RV, but liked it so much that I now use it at home. Heats up quick and holds the juices well.
Just for your information. I had previously bought a grill pad and it works very well in this grill. Holds in the juices even more. Also I won't mention the well know brand of grill that I have used since 1988 and still have the larger model.
Overall, very pleased with new grill

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...
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!

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!

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

Got this grill recently, so can't say how it will hold up over a winter and long time use
Good looking, well designed, and altho not huge, the cooking surface is large enough for a decent sized gathering
Like how evenly the infra red surface cooks, we've had some perfectly grilled steaks so far
And I really appreciate the cast iron griddle that fits on top of the side burner
And truly like the gauge for the propane tank!
The wheels seem to be a little flimsy for a grill this size, and it's not

after allot of reading, and hands on touching, wife and I decided to try char- broil tru infrared system. its alittle more pricey than the other grills, but if I must say its well worth the money. we have been very pleased with the mouth watering foods this grill has turned out. we have had a range of different types of meat on this grill and haven't been disappointed yet. you get a nice char on the food instead of the burnt taste of many other grills from all the flare ups, no flare ups here,

GREAT JOB CHAR_BROIL 10+

Best grille for the price
Love the Truinfrared grilling! No flames just straight heat but be careful, it gets very hot when on high.
I bought my Oil less Turkey fryer before Christmas last year and was so impressed with the performance and taste of the Turkey, beef as well as pork roast's that I bought three more for my sons as Christmas presents. They all have commented to me just how well they work and also the quality of the different meats they have cooked in theirs. Also one of the packages was damaged at the time I bought them. I didn't realize at the time that the damage was enough to lose the handles. When I

I received a pair on handles within three days free of charge from Charbroil. I highly recommend Charbroil products to all of my friends and family.

Two years going strong.
I brought this fryer in 2013 for Thanksgiving. I was giving thanks to the hassle free juicy turkey we had that year. For our first turkey, we brined it over night and it came out perfect. The second one was an injected turkey (my father in law's favorite) and it was still so very good. I have only "fried" turkeys and chicken in it so far and every time the skin is soooo crispy never burnt and the meat was falling off the bone. I am finally purchasing the accessories and I can't wait to do more.

Great Oil-less Fryer
I bougth this item last year for Thanksgiving. After trying the fryer with a whole chicken, which was excellent in flavor and juices, we planned to have two (2) turkeys available for a Thanksgiving party. We did one in my Oil-less fryer and another one in a regular kitchen oven. My turkey took less time to cook, and kept more juices than the regular oven turkey. Not to mention that the flavor was excellent. Easy to use and easy to clean.
Our next goal, to cook a Turducken... (^_^)
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 was wondering can I attach a smoker on this unit and if so where?

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.
