Char Broil 8000T Two-Burner 40,000 BTU Gas Grill

Posted

Pros: Price, side burner, even heat.

Cons: Thin metal build, getting hot enough in Winter is a challenge

I have had this grill for just over a year. Budget was tight last year so I had to find a good buy.  We use it year round, about twice a week. It was a great buy. I am surprised by how evenly it heats.   The temp gauge has surprisingly worked will and did not need to be calibrated. 

 

I take care of the grill, always clean the grates and keep it seasoned with oil.  Clean it regularly and check the parts every 4 months. 

 

The savings was in the metal. Not as heavy as I have had in other grills. So in the winter it had a tough time getting up to heat and keeping it hot.  In the warmer months  I have not had any difficulty maintaing temps.  I usually just sear and cook meats but have done Coke Can Chicken and it worked well.

 

Not a bad grill, especially for the price

Char Broil 8000T Two-Burner 40,000 BTU Gas Grill
Description:

The Char Broil 8000T is a step up from our AT360. It is similar in some aspects but larger with some step up features. It features 405 square inches of cooking area that is covered with a porcelain wire cooking grate. In addition, there is also 275 square inches of secondary cooking area from the warming rack. The burner system is a step up stainless steel burner with separate controls for the right and left sides and a 40,000 BTU rating. The 8000T includes an 8,000 BTU sideburner for some added cooking space. The ignition system fires with a push button ignitor. There is a heat transfer plate covering the burner system to help protect it from grease/marinade/etc. that drips off of the food you are grilling. As that residue builds you may run into the potential for flare-ups so we recommend trying to keep the heat plate as clean as possible. Even if it is clean, there are no guarantees that flare-up will not occur (a lot depends on what you are cooking). The firebox and lid are made of a durable porcealin steel with plastic side shelves on either side. As additional step up features the 8000T has a full front panel, stainless steel control panel, and stainless steel handle.
