This Broil-Mate model is a throwback to the very first gas grills. We reviewed this inexpensive grill and awarded our AmazingRibs.com Platinum Medal.

Char-Broil Vertical Gas Smoker Review

By:

Max Good

It is what it is. If you're looking for a cheap gas smoker Char-Broil is as good as it gets in this price range and you can easily find deals on this guy.
