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.

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.
Yes, I wanted it NOW so picked it up at the store and took it home to start putting it together. I had read on another review on this site that it was about a 4 hour orderal. Mine took 5 hours....and a couple of beers! But it went together fine....good instructions....all the parts, bolts, screws, etc were there! And I know it's put together like a rock! I've used it a few times already and would recommend it to anyone who loves to grill both for just themselves or a larger party! Nice grill cover also!

Better than I thought it would be.
I was a little worried about this purchase. I had never cooked with Tru-Infrared. It is fantastic. VERY fast however. It gets very hot very fast so beware. Love the size of the grill. I cooked 12 burgers, 12 dogs, 2 rolls and did a pan of grilled onions at the same time. All were cooked in less than 20 minutes.
It is very heavy. It took 3 strong guys to carry up 4 stairs to deck. I should have asked the delivery people to do it so keep that in mind.
The grill was delivered, put together and they

We have owned this for over a year and we love it. I have also bought both my son one. We all use them often. We cook pork. . beef, and of course chicken and turkey. Every thing comes out juicy and tender. I like the fact that the meat is cooked 360 around and the meat is evenly cooked. Also there is not much clean up and the kitchen stays cool. What more could you ask for?

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.

convieniant and easy clean
I bought this as a gamble I already have a oil fryer but it takes too much time for prep and clean up . Cooking time is longer with the charbroil but the overall time is shorter and the flavour of the food is equal and also you have more options of what you can cook in the big easy . The only change I would make is instead of a basket for the turkey , have a base with a rod up the middle that would support the turkey with a hook at the top for removing , then sides of turkey would not stick and

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!

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

This grill is easy to use easy to clean. I don't think I will go back to a large grill again. When cooking it si true that the thermometer does go up to 650 but if you are preheating and then turn down the gas and load it with your meat it is easy to regulate when your done turn the gas all the way up and burn it off until there's no more smoke and your ready for your next cookout!! AWESOME GRILL!!

Produces wonderful BBQ
I was looking for a portable BBQ that would be an improvement over my older tabletop BBQ, and this Tru Infrared intrigued me. After getting it we initiated it with grilling salmon, and it did a beautiful job on it. I didn't realize how much oil is in salmon. The grill kept flames (flair up)from coming through. It cooks evenly, and the piazo igniter and temperature gauge are great to have.

I was looking for something small and inexpensive.
We normally cook for 2, sometimes 4. I was looking for something small that had easy cleanup. I also wanted a grill that I could easily put in the garage between uses so it would be out of the elements. I have only used it a couple times, but the flavors from the infrared grill are amazing. You.d think we cooked on charcoal. The grill surface fits in the kitchen sink and cleans up easily. Be sure to follow the "seasoning" directions before you use. I have had no issues with sticking, and as I
