TRU Infrared Cooking System
The Char-Broil TRU-Infrared cooking system allows the grill user to cook their food evenly and with greater temperature control, using infrared technology. The Infrared heat helps prevent hot and cold spots on the grill's cooking surface and facilitates faster cooking with the use of less gas.
The special cooking grate at the core of TRU-Infrared technology spreads heat evenly across the grill top. And because it creates a barrier between food and flames, flare-ups are history. End result- juicier and more flavorful food every time.

When I initially received the grill, there were a few rust spots and some dents on the side panels. Amazon, as usual, was very prompt at addressing my issues to my utmost satisfaction. The assembly was pretty straightforward and took approximately 45 minutes.
If you buy this grill, make sure you clean the grates before/after each use. Also make sure you buy a cover that fits to protect it from the elements.
The ceramic coating on one of the grates was peeling, I contacted Char Broil and they promptly sent me a replacement.
Overall great customer service from both Amazon and Char Broil.
So I contacted their support, not a bad experience, they promptly sent new ones, but the new grates they shipped were used 10 times now and today I see the porcelain again starting to flake off. I am pissed to say the least. The grates are cheap Chinese pieces of crap. The Porcelain is so thin it's like a thin coat of black paint.
So obviously Charbroil is having issues and should recall and replace, and find a new supplier. These grates are used on several models. In my opinion stay away from these grills. I sadly have a $200 boat anchor. I am going to try and see if I can buy after market that are better than the crap grates that come with this grill.
1. Porcelain crates are easily damaged - so get a grill mat so that you don't damage the grill itself...the mats work well - you will need two to cover most of the grill. It makes cleaning up a breeze - just wash the mats. You will still get the grill marks etc. just be careful not to heat up to over 500F cause the mats will melt.
2. Get a propane tank with a gauge - I got mine from local uhaul store - super easy to know when you need to get refill. So you don't need to get a separate tank.
3. Be careful with the grilling - this thing can go up to 600F in under 3 mins. It's pretty amazing.
Chat-boil company has great customer service I called them and get replacement parts for the damaged items for free. Awesome.
