The Char-Broil Grill2Go X200 is a solid portable gas grill that employs their trademark TRU-Infrared design to produce searing temps. It has a 200 square inch stainless steel cooking grate which is also a radiant plate that concentrates heat from the single 9,500 BTU burner. With no open flame, there are no flare-ups, making X200 easy to use and very forgiving for those who become abandoned to the gods of tailgating. The TRU-Infrared design also reduces fuel consumption: a nice feature for a portable that runs on small 16.4 oz. LP cylinders. Heavy cast aluminum lid and firebox will not rust, (although screws and fasteners will), and will retain heat much better than thin steel. The lid snaps shut with two front latches and holds the grate in place so it doesn’t bang around when carried.
Char-Broil states, “This Grill2Go X200 is designed to get hot quickly and hold heat so that food can be cooked quickly. The Grill2Go X200 is able to reach temperatures around 650°F.” Dimensions are: 16″ D X 23.5″ W X 13.75″ H.
A cloth carrying case and 20 lb. LP tank adapter are optional. The case has pockets for some BBQ tools and LP cylinders.

Char-Broil is an innovator in the popular gas grill arena with clever designs, low to midrange prices, and excellent customer service. For several years they have focused on infrared cooking. Starting in 2012 all new IR models were dubbed “Tru-Infrared”. These grills are made with stainless steel tube burners that work in conjunction with a radiant surface to bring heat close to the food. The radiant surface shields food from direct flame and reduces hot dry convection heat rising from the burners.
As one of the biggest BBQ manufacturers in the world, Char-Broil offers a clear, low cost alternative to Weber and surpasses many other price driven manufacturers with their infrared gas grill design innovation and focused marketing. Also in 2012, Char-Broil introduced Saber, a new, very high quality line of gas grills that goes head to head with Weber’s Summit series in the premium grill space. They offer charcoal grills, smokers, fryers and a variety of accessories and tools.
Char-Broil is owned by The W.C. Bradley Company headquartered in Columbus, GA. Roots of W.C. Bradley go back before the Civil War to The Columbus Iron Works. The first Char-Broil grill was made and sold in the USA in 1948. Now all Char-Broil grills are manufactured in China and distributed around the globe.
