Should I buy this Charcoal Grill?

What is everyone's thoughts on this barbecue grill. Do you think it is worth it? I am looking into getting a new Charcoal Grill.

Personally, I'm not a fan of no lid or open lid cookers. In my experience, closing the lid seriously cuts down on flare ups and keeps the wind from pushing the heat away from the food directly over the coals. Your mileage may vary.
I use a 22" Weber Kettle for most charcoal cooks and if the need arises, I have a 26" combo firepit/grill very similar to the 26" Weber Kettle.

I guess it depends on what you want to do with it I agree with mosparky 22" Weber is the best way to go

I like the idea you can raise & lower the charcoal grate, but would agree with the others that Weber is the way to go.

+1 for the Weber kettle. i got a 22 One touch silver for $90 and a couple accessories for about $20 each. (baskets for 2 - zone cooking and new grate) i have been thinking of adding a rotisserie for $80. i do that i will almost be 2/3 into what you will put into that grill you shown. bang for the buck I'm a big believer in the Weber!

Happy Grilling,

Add another vote for the Weber kettle. It's just to versatile to not own.

It looks nice, but I’d go for a Weber as well. Gotta have a lid to control flare ups and temp.

Interesting. I saw nothing but a blank page using Explorer, but on Chrome the pic appeared.

The $399 price is what caught my attention. If it were me, I'd buy the 26" Weber for $299 instead. WAAAAAY more versatile and will probably last longer.
