Obviously, with a site like Survival Cooking, I was eventually going to get around to you know, cooking supplies. As a man who loves the outdoors, cooking at an outdoor grill is one of my favorite pleasures in life. This grill, made by Char-Broil, is quite a fine grilling experience, if you ask me.
The BTU levels on this grill are pretty good. The main gas grill clocks in at 35,000 BTU, and there is a side grill, as well, which produces up to 8,000 BTU of heat. The lid and firebox are sturdy and durable: they are made from steel and coated with porcelain.
On the opposite side of the main grill to the side grill is a decent sized shelf made from plastic, which allows you to store cooking products or utilize an extra little working space. I found it to be quite handy. In total, the main grill features 360 inches of cooking space, so, even though it’s not the biggest grill in the world, it is certainly a capable mechanism for cooking for a significant sized group– especially considered the extra 170 inches of space that is available on the side grill. On the main grill, the wire grates within the grill are steel, and they too are coated with porcelain. For me, I think that the spacing on the grill grating is a little too wide for my preference, slightly more than half of an inch apart, and also I think the wire itself is pretty light. Those criticisms just reflect my preference, but I would definitely suggest being extra to make sure the meat you’re flipping doesn’t slip through the cracks, if you are accustomed to something with smaller spaces.
I found that the ignition system was totally reliable and consistent, which is a major factor for me– I think it is very annoying when you can’t count on a grill giving you a sufficient spark 100% of the time. Thanks to the Piezo ignition system, this is not a problem with this grill at all.
While this is not be the most amazing grill in the world, I am happy to report that it is definitely above average, and it is very well priced. If you are not looking to break the bank and want to buy an outdoor grill from a grill that you can trust, I have no issue recommending this grill to you as a great option!
