Was very apprehensive about buying this grill after reading some of the reviews. Got my tools out, checked the weather out to make sure I had a few days without rain and than opened the box. Was pleasantly surprised when it only took a total of six hours and I didn't yell at the dog once. A few steps could have been laid a little clearer but overall was not bad at all. And to my amazement everything worked the first time.
Husband took 5 hrs to assemble this grill and the materials used are flimsy. Want to return it to the store but husband won't assemble another one due to the hrs he already put in on this. We also don't have a truck to return to the store so we kinda of got stuck with it.
The grill was not that difficult to put together as many of the reviews had mentioned. We love the grill and use it daily.
Great grill, after it was put together, but a piece was bent so it didn't fit together correctly and it took 5 hours to assemble. Otherwise, it works great. It's very heavy duty. We like the gas on one side/charcoal on the other with the side burner option. It has everything. It is very large though, so don't get it if you have a small grilling area. Also, if you're buying a grill cover, make sure you check the dimensions.
So I bought this grill about a week and a half ago, I needed something for Memorial Day weekend. I suggest you have them put it together at the store because anything that can come separately as a piece does. The only thing you don’t have to do is weld the box together. Lol. It took about 6 hours for me and a friend to put together. The igniter is a pain right in the **** too, you have to pretty much break your finger pressing that thing in. Overall I give it 3 stars because it’s done what it’s suppose to. The material isn’t thick at all, it’s kind of flimsy so I’m not sure how long this thing is going to last. I definitely reccomend getting a cover. Good luck!
