Char-Broil Grill2Go Ice Realtree Portable Gas Grill Review

Share on:
Char-Broil Grill2Go Ice Realtree Portable Gas Grill

This small, portable gas grill has a unique design. The grill is integrated into a collapsible stand on two wheels, much like a suitcase on wheels with telescoping handle. Two 30 quart cloth ice bags rest at the bottom of the frame. The handle and grill are on telescoping poles and can be pulled up or pushed down as needed.

On paper and in photos, the system looks good. But true to Char-Broil form, for everyone who loves the Grill2Go Ice, there’s another who suffers from extreme buyer’s remorse. Some love the collapsible design and ease of transport, others complain the telescoping legs and handle are rickety and the entire unit is too heavy to lift up and down stairs or into a car. Some are very pleased with cooking performance, others seem like they can barely get the grill to function. We have not had the opportunity to test this one.

The cookbox is similar to Char-Broil’s Gourmet grills. A radiant trough rests above the single burner. Grates are porcelain coated metal. You can toss wood chips through the grate onto the trough to get a whiff of BBQ smoke. Piezo electric ignition.
