Just purchased this grill online and was delivered in 3 days. Assembly was very simple, took a total of 1-1/2 hours. The grill looks great! Its huge! I was hesitant to purchase this without seeing the size of the smoker first hand, but went to Sears and looked at some similar grills, so we could estimate how large the smoker might me. We are pleasantly surprised at how big the smoker unit is. It will fit plenty of ribs, a pork roast, etc. The unit heats up fast and with the 6 burners you have tons of room for your meats and veggies. The top rack is plenty big too for potatoes, etc. We grilled ribeyes and chicken wings the first night and had no flare ups. They both cooked up perfect! 2nd night we grilled chicken breasts and again, no flare-ups, came out tender and juicy! We love all the extra options this grill offers, plus it looks great!! Great service from Sears too! UPDATE: smoked a 9lb pork BBQ in the smoker and it was awesome! Temperature stayed steady all day!
I bought this Grill for my Husband just under 2 years ago, and 2 weeks ago my husband went to use it and the lips that hold the burners in place rusted away,and the the fire box also rusted out. mind you he kept it covered, with a kenmore grill cover bought at sears. we didn't purchase the protection plan for the fact is that a grill that cost almost $800.00 should last at least 10 years or more. we called sears to see if they could do anything about getting the grill fixed and they told us without the protection plan they can't do anything about it. so i called corporate and they put a customer service rep. on and she told me that if corporate won't help me she wasn't able to do anything either.I would not buy any kenmore grills.this isn't the only kenmore grill that had bad reviews other models also had issues to.
Bought this 2 years ago had nothing but problems. Warranty is a joke three different service calls problem never was fixed. Smoker is not useable, even on the lowest setting temp is too high and lights your meat on fire. The smoker door doesn't stay closed so walking away is a big no no, huge flames! Now the burner brackets have rusted off and don't even get me started on the flimsy heat shields. This grill wasn't used much and kept covered by the optional kenmore cover we purchased at the same time, oh and that was cheap **** too ripped to threads now. I used to be a loyal kenmore purchaser but no more I don't know where this stuff is manufactured but it is certainly not built to last.
Handles rusted in first 3 weeks, coulnt keep it working had it worked on 3 times in first year including a full rebuild. Smoker was to hot would not turn down to low enough heat 250---275 which caused meat to cook to fast. was told to turn the valve down on tank which would not work. Should be 175-225 to slow cook and smoke most meat. Igniters were always going out. heat deflectors were rusted out after 1 year. Bottom where tank went was rusted so bad that the tank was about to fall through in 3 years Paid $899 and it was junk buying me a webber
Cheaply made. Rusted within a month metal is super thin. Not worth half the price.
