Char-Broil grill with auto-clean
My husband and I love this grill, we bought it May 2009. It was easy to assemble, and easy to use. We don't use the burner on the side much though. It is also a very large grill so it would be wise to do some measuring before you purchace it. The grill heats up very quickly, and cooks evenly. It truly is very easy to clean, which is a big seller for me, I mean who like to stand there for 20min scrapping the gunk from your grill. I highly recommend this grill. We also bought the char-broil grill cover to go with it, it fits very nice, and has velcro sides, it has never blown off, even during a massive storm.

Worst Grill I've ever owned
I absolutely hate this grill, worst I've ever owned. I'm not alone, thinking maybe I was just being negative, I had a friend cook burgers during a recent BBQ and he hated it as well, as did all of the guest that proceeded to get smoked out. The problem with the grill is that grates do not allow pieces of food to pass through, instead they sit in place and smolder, smoke, and burn...take a look at the pictures, you will understand what I'm talking about, and I'm sorry to say you can't cook a cheeseburger without some meat/cheese falling onto the cooking surface and when this occurs be prepeared to be smoked out. After you are done cooking, get ready for a clean up because if you don't your next fire up the grill will result in yet another smoldering mess. My only resolution will be to purchase new traditional grill plates, replacing the ones for.....I might leave one of the "infra red" ones on because I do see it being useful for some items, but overall I can't say enough bad about the cooking surface. If you don't trust me on this, when the fire dept comes to your house because of the smoke tell them I said hello and thanks for their service!
