This has to be the poorest gas grile that was ever built

Posted

Pros: None

Cons: This is Char-Broils Infrared Commercial gas grille- it won't get hot enough to sear a steak.

I've had this thing for about 6 months, and have given up trying to grille anything on it. Hamburgers turn grey, and are very unappetizing. Steaks never get any grille marks, it is impossible to sear the exterior. They just sit there, don't even sizzle. Reminds me of the old song, I'm too pooped to pop, just setting here frying. I contacted customer service while this thing was new, and they sent me a whole new burner/regulator assy. - no improvement.  Tried to give it back to Lowes, where  I bought it - tough shit.  They didn't want it back. So I'm out $500+. DON'T EVER BUY A CHAR-BROIL.

5 years running, very solid grill!

Pros: durability, accurate temp gauge, quality, price

Cons: exterior appearance (pitting, blackening)

very solid grill!  ive had this for 5 years now and havent had an issue yet, side burner has worked well and the ignitor STILL works on the first push.  I've cooked thousands of pounds of meat on this and have even used it for rudimentary smoking, every time ending up with a great end product.  aside from the exterior becoming a little unsightly, (hey, five years outside in Jersey will do that)  this grill has become a family member to me.  top rack is great for shrimp kabobs or some delicious south jersey silver queen corn!
