Full Review – Char-Broil 2-Burner Classic Gas Grill

Let's be honest. This isn't a good gas grill. Most of the people who buy it are simply looking for a quick and cheap solution for the next cookout. I do understand buying a gas grill like this, but I would suggest a better solution. While a $130USD gas grill seems like a deal, it really isn't. This grill is just a shell of sheet metal and the cheapest burner that money can buy. Just consider that it only weights 38 pounds and still stands upright. One suggestion for a full sized grill of good quality and durability is to think about going charcoal. A good charcoal grill can be had for this price or less. True, charcoal isn't as convenient and the long term fuel cost will be higher, but a charcoal grill is better in every other way. Another solution is to consider a portable gas grill. These come in a wide range or prices, but pound for pound, are better built and only a little smaller than this gas grill.
