Customer Reviews

I purchased this grill a little over 2 years ago and kept it covered when not in use.
If you are serious about gas grilling and want to spend the money, I would advise on getting a suitable model that would not rust.
Its one thing to get a bad product but their customer service is just as bad as this grill.

I used a Weber charcoal grill for years. I used it to grill and smoke. I loved the taste of charcoal, but finally got tired of the hassle. When I saw the duo, I thought my prayers had been answered. They were....but not really.

This is definitely the most versatile grill on the market (I added the smoker box) but they could have done so much more to make it a 'great' grill. When I saw the price tag, I was worried about the craftmanship. My worries were justified.

First, the materials that the grill is made out of are pretty good. The steel is heavy, the grills are solid, and the frame is rigid. The problem is the design and craftsmanship. A previous reviewer complained about the wheels being cheap plastic. Chargriller must have taken the advice, because the wheels that I have are fairly solid. It took about 2 hours to put the grill together by myself. While putting it together, I noticed the charcoal side and smoker are far from air-tight, not good for charcoal and smoking. You want a very tight charcoal grill so temperature can be controlled precisely by the dampers (the Weber I had was as tight as a drum). This grill is far from air-tight. The area around the lid has about a 1/4 inch gap and the smoker has many many areas where the pieces don't fit together perfectly. There are also a few holes in the smoker where screws for the feet would have gone (the smoker can also be a standalone grill). All these gaps and cracks make it nearly impossible to control the heat. With all the dampers closed, I should be able to smother the fire/coals/wood, but the grill burns at 400+ degrees even with all the dampers closed!!!

Other Cons:
- When the lids are open, the warming racks go up/back right over the lid.

Ok, so this is for the grill, NOT the price. Amazon's price on this item is WAY too high but that isn't what the review is for... I got mine at a sporting goods store for under $250 so shop around.

This is a fantastic grill, it is really versitile.

- Allows you to cook with charcoal, gas, or smoke (with the optional side firebox)
- The 3 burners on the gas side are close to the cooking surface which makes it really easy to control the cooking temperature.
- The side firebox somes with cooking grates for grilling 1-2 steaks

- The grease pan is difficult to clean
- The ash tray can be cumbersome to remove
- It could really use some better wheels, this is a HEAVY grill if you have the firebox attached and moving it around is tough.
- No option for using natural gas as a fuel source

The Cons are all relatively minor in my opinion. This is a great grill, I'd buy another one for sure.

My husband and I searched and searched for a grill that could do both charcoal and gas. I found this one on Amazon. I love the fact that it offers a smoking option. The burners on the gas side fire up easily and on the charcoal side you can raise and lower the rack you put the charcoal on. It's heavy enough that it hasn't once tipped over from strong winds.(I've had that problem with other grills I've had.) I also like the fact that the gas and the charcoal are completely separate. You can smoke meat on the charcoal side while you are cooking on the gas side. I've had the grill for almost a year and it still works great!

On the con side...
-It rusts easily, even with putting vegetable oil on the surfaces like it directs you too. You have to clean out the charcoal ashes after every use and it's not the easiest to clean. The rack that holds the charcoal doesn't come off the rack that catches the ashes, so rust is bound to form. You will definitely need the cover, unless you plan on storing it inside out of the elements when not in use. A heads up on the cover...although it fits the grill perfectly, it doesn't have elastic on the bottom to stop it from coming off in the wind. We used a couple bungee cords to hold the cover on and that is working great.

-The grease drip pan on the gas side doesn't fully come off making that difficult to clean as well.

Even despite it's cons, I would recommend this grill. It serves it's purpose for the quickness of gas, but also the flavor of charcoal.

I am a twelve month BBQ user. We have had a monster Stainless grill for the last 9 years and have cooked pretty much everything including the annual thanksgiving turkey. Decided this year it was time for a new grill but didn't want just another boring SS monster. Did some looking on the web and found this char-griller with great reviews - and for the price at lowes (pre-assembled no less) I figured I would give it a shot. I also got the side firebox (though I didn't set it up for a week - silly mistake, what a difference).

When I got it home, I went through and tightened up all of the hardware fastners, which was much better than having to actually build the whole thing from parts. I then read ALL of the direction and followed them very specifically including the all important seasoning phase. It is a good idea to buy this AFTER dinner so you are not tempted to jump right in to cooking on it as you will be disappointed if the seasoning step is skipped. I have since used this grill at least 20 of the last 30 days both gas and charcoal sides.

Setup and installed the firebox the second weekend and WHAT AN AWESOME ADD ON!!! We had some people over for a mini BBW party (yes seemes strange in early April). We smoked a rack of spare ribs for dinner all day on the charcoal side while grilling up burgers and dogs for lunch for the kids.

I wanted to also comment on the convenience of lighting charcoal using a chimney and the side burner. I have watched my father with his old Weber kettle grill for years - lighting the charcoal with one of those U shaped electric lighters. This was the biggest reason why bought a gas grll to start with.
