Product Description

The Char-Broil M500 style 4 burner grill is similar to its N480 cousin but with a series of extra features that make it yet another great value in its own right. The grill has a great appliance style cart design with 2 doors, and a combination of stainless steel and porcelain coated steel construction. The 4 burners fire out 50,000 BTU's of heat to cover the 500 sq. in. of primary cooking area and the 280 sq. in. of secondary cooking space. The 13,000 BTU side burner of course provides a great deal of versatility while grilling. The M500 features a new Char-Broil exclusive "Surefire" Electronic ignition as well as the Char-Broil patented "Dual Fuel" design which allows for the grill to be easily converted from LP to Natural Gas with the purchase of a conversion kit (can be converted in lass than 30 minutes). As with all grills, we recommend keeping the firebox clean to help avoid flare up as well as using a grill cover to protect your invest.

I see so many people that submit reviews here that don't even own the product. Well, I own a very similar Charbroil, so I can actually tell you how great it is.

Is a Weber better? Certainly. It also costs two to three times as much.

I can say that the Charbroil I have gets up to 500-600 degrees, perfect for searing meats. And everything we have grilled on it has been fantastic.

It is not made of high grade materials. Why? Because they cost much more. But they don't make the grill cook better, they make it last longer. So, you have to decide if paying $900 for a grill that lasts 10 years (you will still have to replace the innards two times) or a grill that lasts 3-4 years that costs 1/3 the price is best for you.

Personally, I like the latter. And there are ways to make sure your grill lasts as long as possible no matter what you buy. First thing I do out of the box is coat every stainless steel piece with WD-40. Every screw as well. And always the side burner. This rejects some of the moisture that builds up in these units.

Get a good cover. It makes a huge difference. A cover you can easily put on and take off is key, because you will use it, which, of course, is the only way it is effective.

I also take vasoline to every exposed screw and moving joint in the unit. I skip the ones that heat up, but there are so many places where rust can begin and it cannot begin under vasoline.

Repeating this process before winter and in the spring does wonders.

The burners will rust. Part of the deal. They rust in all grills because the heat impacts them dramatically. Be prepared to replace them at least once in the four years this grill performs for you.

Verified Purchase
This grill is great for the price but I would shop local for a few reasons:
1. Lowe's put this one on sale a week after I got it on-line.
2. Set up is not too difficult but its not too fun either (Lowe's had free setup).
3. My grill was slightly damaged during shipping, can't happen locally.
Plenty of heat from the 4 burners, runs at 500 on low. Side burner is beter than most.
The thermometer in the lid is a great feature and one that you will not find on most
grills in this category.

In 20 years of grilling I've owned several grills and this one is the best! It heats evenly across the entire grill surface. I've cooked fish, chicken, hamburgers and steaks and not a single piece of meat has burned due to the design of the grates. The burners are protected from spills and should last a long time. Cleaning is a breeze! I heat the grill for 10 minutes after cooking and I use a wire brush while the grill is still hot. Any wire brush with long stiff bristles will do the job. I also like the fact that I can place wood chips directly on top of the grates.

As with all grills in this price range the metal is a bit thin, but this doesn't affect performance. That's really the only complaint I have.

After heming and hawing over what kind of BBQ to get, we figured ANY BBQ would have about a 5 to maybe 10 year life with us because we are not going to clean it EVERY TIME we use it, and rarely if EVER will we clean the internal parts of the BBQ. We just want to be able to throw it open and slap some burgers, steaks and or veggies on it. We live in Southern California and can BBQ year round and we do. We are not fancy chefs and this gets the job done. We figured the infrared would be a pain in the butt to clean, and would probably not live as long as an old standard.

This is a quality BBQ for the price. We really like the side searer. My only complaint is that for some reason the back part of this BBQ doesn't seem to get as hot as the front. When we grill sliced zucchini, the ones in the front of the BBQ always cook faster. I like the side table for holding beers and plates. When we were shopping we went to Lowes, Home Depot and the BBQ Store. I opened and closed the lid of EVERY SINGLE one of them. I didn't want a super flimsy feeling BBQ, I found that this BBQ felt the best out of all the others in it's price range.

I'm really happy with it.

I currently own a char broil commercial series 3 cast brass burners with side burner. It now is just over 9 years old I grill year round literally at least twice a week and live in Michigan it sits out on my deck in the weather no cover I have never replaced anything on this unit. The igniter doesn't work but that was broke by my chocolate lab chewing it off. The flame carry over bar is rusted so you have to light each burner separately or wait for the big poof of fire. That can be replaced cheap but I don't care doesn't effect cooking. The outside and cooking grates look as good as the day I bought it. I TAKE OUT THE BURNERS AND CLEAN THEM ONCE A YEAR along with cleaning the entire unit twice a year. It is in its 10th the year of cooking now and runs better than my friend latest and greatest brinkman 4 burner that is only in its 2nd year of cooking.

This grill may be good for the price you are paying, but it last only two seasons!
I bought it in Home Depot 2 years ago and I have now the 2 side burners totally gone, I need to replace all of the(4) main burners, heat tent, plus the bottom of the grill has a hole!
Every time you cook you have to clean up at least 1/2 hour, of course it cook the meat /chicken quick.
I had mine with properly cover, good care, still...cheap parts, it is gone. I need another grill for this season.
