I bought this one to replace the one I bought in 2000, it was still going, I had replaced the burners and the grate, but it still looked good, the Red porcelain cover was still sharp and stood out. UNFORTUNATELY, 2 wind storms did it in, the first one flipped it and dented the cover, a week later the next one flipped it again and busted the grates and damaged the burners, I set it out at the curb when I got this new one and a neighbor snagged the old one within an hour and rebuilt it, said it was beautiful. So as the old one lasted so long I said to my self, gotta get another Char Broil. Love the combination gas and charcoal, have used both for different cook outs, very happy with the way it cooks, and the way it operated, especially nice is the crank to raise and lower the grate for the charcoal side. The 3 burners on the gas side makes this grill very versatile, the rack over the grill is perfect for doing baked potatoes and the side burner is great for cooking side dishes. In a word.... GREAT!
I bought this grill a year and a half ago and it was cooking well. The heat shield rotted out on the bottom that protects the propane tank. All four grates are disintegrating as are the caps above the burners on the propane side. I have alternated using both the gas and charcoal side so it would seem like it should last longer. By the time I replace all these parts, it would be half the cost of a new grill. The exterior still looks new. This is the second grill that I had to replace parts on in just over a year and a half.
My husband loves it! It's a large grill and he loves the option for gas, coals, and even stovetop for frying outside. We haven't had it long so I cannot comment on the rusting.
I've had this grill a year and a half. I love the charcoal side for cooking meats. The gas side is perfect for vegetables, baking and keeping food warm. The side burner is a must.
I bought this grille for the 2nd time on line. The first one lasted 6 years. It is perfect1/2 gas and 1/2 charcoal. Seems like Charbroil is the only one that has it. I’ve always used Charbroil- best value.
Great for party's. Love it
My Fathers Day Gift from my wife. I have had several Gas/Charcoal Grills in the past. THIS IS THE BEST. I use both sides at the same time, Bake potatoes on the gas side at the same time cook steaks on the charcoal side.
Great for smoking also.
Wish I could find a rotisserie that was made for this model.
We will never buy any other brand.
