Dyna-Glo Dual Zone Charcoal Grill Review

Dual Zone Charcoal Grill

The Dyna-Glo Dual Zone Charcoal Grill looks good on paper, but we are skeptical of the quality from this manufacturer. The good news is it has two, independently adjustable charcoal trays, a unique BBQ feature which could be useful, and a removable firebox divider to isolate the two zones. Double cast iron doors up front allow easy access for tending the charcoal trays.


Cooking grates are coated cast iron and the outer hood and chimney are stainless steel. Forget about the crumby heat indicator in the lid, it's sure to be way off. Check our Searchable Thermometer Reviews to find an accurate digital thermometer and never serve under or over cooked meats again.

Side shelves with tool hooks, two large black plastic wheels and two locking casters. Some owners appreciate this grill, but too many regret their purchase typically citing inferior design, fabrication and quality of materials and parts.

2) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
