Weber Q2200 Liquid Propane Grill (54060001)
  • The cooking grates have a wider area that covers the burner to prevent this so I don't understand the problem.
  • IT is portable, has a good cooking area with no dead spots. If I were in charge of handing out grill awards, this one would have the Blue Ribbon for sure.
  • This grill is well thought out is compact but has a good size cooking area
  • A friend has the Q1000 and while it is perfect for 1-2 people, the grill area is limiting. Great job Weber, very satisfied!
  • Large cooking area & very sturdy. Highly recommended

  • This is one big grill and I'm still getting used to the infra red technology versus the standard gas grill.
  • I bought natural gas kit and installed while building the unit. It is solid and feeds large parties. Looks good.

  • Well, aside from the cleaning issue, it's an attractive, large, seemingly well build unit, It's just such a pain to try to keep clean and usable, it's not worth it.

Char-Broil Signature TRU-Infrared (463276016) 4-Burner Gas Grill
  • Now just need to spray food oil to get it not to stick on the grates and keep all the plates oiled upped. This will keep it in great condition for many years.
  • The grill is well made, but I had an older tru infrared grill for 5 years which had emitters that were also the cooking grate.

  • The cover made for it traps moisture inside and so we found the "stainless" steel rusted quicker than if we just left the cover off.
  • My only complaint is it is very mess to clean the searing trays underneath the grill grate.

Char-Broil Signature TRU-Infrared (463276016) 4-Burner Gas Grill
  • I went back to the "infrared" technology which I think is about as good as one can get. A close second would be completely covering the flames with lava rocks, but the newer grills don't allow for that.
  • Easy to assemble with a few hours to spare and all of the burners are super high quality.
  • Cleanup was not any more complicated than my old gas grill, and I love how this doesn't have any flare ups!
  • Awesome Grill! This is the first grill I can cook myself and not ask my husband to do all the grill cooking. No flair ups and good even cooking temperatures.
