CharBroil has definitely improved the quality and construction of their grills over previous versions. I grill 3-5 times a week rear 'round and I needed a grill to stand up to that kind of activity.The grill heats very quickly and has, virtually no flare-ups, giving you evenly-cooked meat, with perfect grill marks every time. Because of the high, quick heat, steaks are juicy and tender. I, also, like the fact that you can place wood chips directly on/between the grill grates to add smokey flavor. Cleaning is much easier than expected. Because the grill heats to such high temperature, most of the food, wood chips, etc. simply burns right off. Time will tell how durable the grill will be, but for now,, Great Grill!
