    General Information

    • Model Number G521-3500-W1
    Trough Firebox is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 74.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 yrs & I fear the trough will fall into the fire I grill on average once a week, and keep the grill covered/out of the weather. Now both points on which these troughs hold themselves in place are bending. Very disappointed that to replace both, it will cost 1/4 of a brand new grill.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great at first, but not built to last!!! Love the grill, keep it on a covered, screened in porch. The fear the fire trough is going to fall through every time I grill, the little tabs that hold it in place have almost rusted completely off and are holding on by a thread, I can only use one side right now.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Grill - Poor Part Design This grill does a great job evenly cooking. The radiant trough design is poor. The mounting post legs rusted off in about 3 years , would have expected better with a grill this price. The first grill I actually kept covered. Disappointing they are so expensive to replace. Was hoping to see they had redesigned them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cooked Great but falling apart I was super happy for the first 6 months...cooked great and looked great. Mild California weather, always covered, never in rain, just average 1-3 time a week use. At some point it started taking much longer to heat up(just even to 300F), but the bigger problem is that the grills are falling apart and sticking to everything and the troughs in the firebox(under the grills) are rusting/burning out and now have big holes-so much for no flare ups and indirect even heat. The troughs and grills just need to be made of better material. I have followed seasoning directions, care instructions, etc. The replacement parts are almost as much as buying a new grill, can you please confirm part number of trough and grill replacements?

    I have an Red #463250811 for 3 yrs and firebox bottom has holes rusted thru. Part has had very bad reviews so I will not replace. I like the way infrared cooks, so have you an updated model that resolved these issues or should I look at a Weber grill?

    Asked by: Billni
