    Trough Firebox is rated 2.8333333333333335 out of 5 by 66.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but breaks The trough does an excellent job of emitting heat evenly through the foods being cooked, however, the front two eyelet pieces designed to keep the trough in place easily break. It is disappointing that the replacement part is so expensive.

    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.

    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?

    Is there an upgrade to the Trough Firebox PT#G521-3500-W1?? Seems to be the weak point in this grill. Also was wondering if there are upgraded stainless grates for this grill? I have the Char-Broil Gourmet T-47D.

    Asked by: mrreid68
    There is not an upgrade for this trough or a stainless steel replacement for your grates. How are you normally cleaning these parts? We recommend warm soapy water or biodegradable grill cleaner with a nylon brush. Give us a call at 1-800-241-7548 and we will be able to further assist and help you to get back up and grilling.
