The entire unit you see in the picture on Amazon is metal and has a nice texture paint coating (excpet for the stainless hoods of course)for a great look and feel. The bottom assembly went together great, all holes where they should be and aligned, but after placing the top assembly on top (two person job) the holes were not lining up perfectly, but close enough that with some extra elbow grease you could make the screws work.
The side shelves were a little on the thin side, but once attached to the main unit they are not flimsy feeling, although they are not as tight a fit as the rest of the unit. The single automatic lighter button (runs of one AA which is included) ignites the side burner, the two propane burners and the charcoal starter burner, you just set the knob for the burner you want and push the button. Like the other reviewer mentioned the basket that holds the charcoal is a little loose, but its not flimsy, just not as tight a fit as I would have liked, it works fine anyhow.
Ive had many grills and I can say I really appreciated the simplicity of the layout, how the heat shields above the burners just set into predrilled slots, easy access to burners and the nice fittings used for the side burner assembly, all well thought out.Read more ›
One thing that would make it better is if you could add charcoal/woodchips without having to remove the grates.
The lower louver to restrict air to the charcoal side is a little sloppy feeling.
There are holes in the hood when closed for a rotissarie or something, I wish they weren't there, it makes it hard to keep the temperature really low if you want to throw some woodchips in there and smoke your food.
Overall I love it!
I give it 5 stars but must say whomever put in the manual it takes 30-45 minutes to assemble is way off try 2-3 hours if your doing it yourself. The instructions are very good and all that is needed is a phillips head screw driver but just be prepared and not start the assembly at 10:30 at night before a holiday like i did and you will be fine, lol....
On the plus side, there is plenty of grilling room on each side, and plenty of heat. I got the gas side to 500 degrees (with the top down of course) on a 55 degree day with a moderate breeze. I measured the surface of the 'tents' over the burners with an infrared thermometer at about 625 degrees which is fine, though the grill is a bit hotter between the tents. I did the 'seasoning' on the charcoal side, and found the propane starter worked fine, though it took about 25 minutes for the charcoal to fully turn white.
I'm a very experienced assembler, but even at that it took me nearly two hours, hardly in keeping with what the manual says of 30-45 minutes. It is a fairly simple assembly, just a lot of it and I found it much easier to take off the lids, assemble, then put them back on again as I didn't have anyone to help. This thing is heavy! They provided no spare hardware, and of course I lost a cotter pin and screw, but had stuff onhand for that. The only issue that I had was when I put the top unit on the bottom unit, two holes in the crossbrace didn't like up perfectly. As someone else said, a little elbow grease worked.
Now for the not so good. The charcoal basket is very flimsy and I doubt it will hold up more that a season or two. Its lifting mechanism works, but it quite 'sloppy', as is the lower vent, as someone else mentioned. I was able to tighten that up. The worst problem is the handle that moves the charcoal up and down sticks way out from the grill, and I have run into it twice already. I saw the same handle on a grill a couple of years ago, so it looks like they used the same one. I'm going to cut it down.Read more ›
On the plus side, it has a gas auxiliary burner, a gas grill, and a gas ignited charcoal grill. If you have never used a gas ignited charcoal grill, you don't know what easy charcoal lighting is. I had an Aussie Bonza for years, and when that died, I got this one. The gas side is great. I don't use the side burner for much. It's easier to clean that the Bonza, and you can control the temperature.
The down side all has to do with the charcoal side. Please note that these are annoyances, not deal killers. First, the gas doesn't hit the igniter consistently, so I have to use a grill lighter. Second, the gas jet is located to one side, so you don't get an even charcoal burn without a little shuffling. Third, the charcoal grate is too far from the back so the back cooks much faster than the front, but you can use that to your advantage. Fourth, although you CAN control the temperature, I haven't seemed to master that yet. Finally, the charcoal grates are spaced a little too far apart, so the charcoal drops into the catch tray easily.
I would recommend the Weber Performer with a gas igniter for your charcoal needs plus a gas grill for convenience. Webers have a great reputation in charcoal grills and one of those plus a gas grill would come out to about the same price as this. Plus, if one fails, you don't have to scrap the whole setup.
