Char-Broil Performance 2-Burner

This 2-burner works well in small spaces like a condo patio. When not in use, one can fold down the side shelves and roll it out of the way. If space is not an issue and you can afford the extra money, we recommend upgrading to the 3-burner which will perform better for 2-zone or indirect cooking.

This model is the smallest grill in Char-Broil’s Performance BBQ line. Available at Tru-Value and other independent retailers it has heat indicators above each stainless steel burner just like Char-Broil’s Commercial grills. Performance and Commercial lines also have similar IR cooking grate designs, except Performance uses a single piece of stainless steel that mimics the Commercial line combo of a cast iron grate resting on a stainless steel radiant plate. They get very hot and radiate evenly across the surface.

Performance grills have battery powered ignition. Lightweight construction consists of a thin 430 stainless steel lid, control panel, single door and handles and painted steel side shelves and cart on four casters.

grouchy?

1) Please try the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) 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.

4) If you are a member of the Pitmaster Club, your comments login is probably different.
