Trough, Single is rated out of 5 by 24.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 1212 from TRU Infrared Grill Trough Burned Holes This is a great way to cook. However, the trough, after a year's use, got holes burned through it and the flames came up through the openings. This char-broil gets so hot when cleaning, it burns holes in the trough. Now I have to buy a replacement trough.

Rated 2 out of 5 by bostoneight from Replacement lasted about a year. The replacement seemed lighter than the original and lasted less less time. Got about a year out of it got 3 with the original it has been 4 years since I purchased the grill and it is now falling apart... while I loved the grill and highly recommended it to friends I would have expected a longer lifespan and less upkeep.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nc skibum from Wish it lasted longer I love how the Red grill cooks but sure wish these grill troughs lasted longer. I need to replace the large trough for the second time. Looking at the website today was the first time I noticed seasoning recommendations. None came with the original grill purchase, nor the previous trough replacements.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ImaBBQer from Replacement trough lasts a little over one year We are on our third trough. The problem is that holes appear in the area over the first burner as if the trough is starting to rust out. Once holes develop, drippings from whatever is being BBQ'd can drip through to the burner and catch on fire; this is not a god scenario. We BBQ about 3-times per week. Char-Broil should come up with a longer lasting alternative; perhaps stainless steel would work better. Our BBQ is under cover and never gets wet so exposure to the elements is not the issue. The problem must be a combination of the drippings from whatever is being BBQ'd and the heat from the burners

Rated 3 out of 5 by JohnCs from Can't handle the heat After roughly a year, burn holes started appearing in the trough. This makes infrared cooking uneven and far less effective. I did not expect to replace it so soon and the replacement cost is suspiciously high.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Slicjoc1 from Poorly engineered trough I've had this grill for approximately 12 months and have enjoyed the grilling capabilities regularly. My complaint is with the poor design of the trough emitter. After 9 months of use it began to warp to the extent that the cooking grids would not seat properly. They began to slope toward the center of the grill. The trough was cleaned and oiled after each use and was stored with a cover under a patio roof. I would expect this part to last much longer considering I followed the owner's manual recommendations. I do not believe the trough structure was designed to handle such high temperatures and as a result began to warp. Considering that the replacement part costs $39 plus shipping and the life expectancy is approximately a year if cared for properly, I bought 2 new troughs. I would not recommend this unit to anyone in the market and will certainly shop around when replacing this grill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LeClaw from certainly not titanium this "emitter" lasted 2 seasons. And I assure you I am not a grill at every chance kind of guy. and to replace it for $50 is absurd. The whole grill was $250. I'm off to buy a new grill. It won't be a be a Tru-Infrared. Maybe old school charcoal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jimbo57 from Terrible Design I love the food that comes off my infrared grill. That's the only good thing I have to say about it. I have to keep replacing the trough about every year which gets expensive. Now my crossover tubes and burners are rusting out. You would think after spending sooo much money on a infrared grill that it would last longer than it does. I thought about purchasing a new charbroil infrared grill but I don't think they have made any improvements to the grill at all.

Websites that are not properly tested really agrivate me. In the part where you can check if this part works on your model, the trough does not work. Nor does it come up in the model part search. It seems that this is the most common problem part?
We apologize for the frustrations. Please provide us with the model number for your grill and we will be able to locate the trough that will best fit. This model number should be on the rating label, on the back towards the bottom of the grill, and also on the front cover of the product guide. The model number normally begins with 46.

When did Model #G517-0800-W1 replace 80017362? I see a lot of not so good reviews here about longevity of the trough, and was wondering if quality changed with Model #G517-0800-W1 for the better.
Model # G517-0800-W1 is the updated part number. This trough should still function properly as long as it is being seasoned and cleaned regularly.
