Char-Broil CB940X Charcoal Grill Review
Char-Broil makes several charcoal grills in a range of size, price, and quality. One of our favorites is the Char-Broil CB940X Charcoal Grill. It has a nice large 540 square inch cooking surface with pre-seasoned cast iron cooking grates, adjustable height charcoal grate, a front door for easy fire tending, two adjustable dampers, removable ash tray, and two handy removable wooden side boards that double as carving and serving boards.
For straight forward grilling, it’s all here with a big cook surface for parties. Be sure to season the cast iron grates after every cook our you’ll be enjoying rust rub burgers the second time you fire this guy up. Get a cover because these grills aren’t made to last. But if your just looking for a big burger machine that will hold up for for a few years, this will do the job.
