Char-Broil Combination Charcoal and Gas Grill Review
Char-Broil’s Combination Charcoal and Gas Grill is yet another entry into the increasingly crowded gas/charcoal BBQ combo cooker arena. A small gas grill with three 12,000 BTU burners on one side and small charcoal grill on the other. The gas side includes a flush mount 12,000 BTU side burner. Charcoal side has a hand cranked, adjustable tray that moves the coal up and down for good heat control and a front access firebox door to tend the coal. A handy slide out ash pan is included.
Porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates all the way around and small warming racks on both sides. The whole deal rests on a semi-enclosed, two door cart with four casters.
We’re skeptical of these combo cookers and recommend you consider getting a separate gas and charcoal model. You should be able to get more for your money and if one of them dies, they aren’t joined at the hip.
