Rated 5 out of 5 by SlowBurnCooker Worth the effort. This is not the simplest grill to put together. The directions are better than most...yet leave some things out. Anybody that has put together RTA stuff before...from AV stands to bicycles, will handle this thing. Took me 4 hours while I was doing other stuff(moving water sprinklers around, taking dogs out...). Probably could have managed it in two hours. My one snafu was putting two of the four legs on wrong(I swapped the back two, had to re-do them for the rack to attach). Overall the parts for this are decent. Will this last "years"...eh maybe. But for the price, if you get 4 years out of it, you are still way ahead. The charcoal side takes some practice. Because it isn't sealed well, starting your charcoal takes "longer than it says on the bag". If your charcoal says you can cook in 15...it will take 30 minutes. But once it is going, it takes practice to not have runaway heat...again, because it isn't sealed well. I like a slow burn around 180-220. I got it "correct" with the right amount of charcoal and "additional charcoal"(cause when you cook that cool, it takes 5+ hours) on the 5th try. Is it perfect? No. But then again, a perfect grill isn't $200.The only thing I'd change or just leave off is the rack opposite the tank. It only holds two pounds. Without it on you can stack a couple of bags of charcoal underneath. I personally don't keep anything around a grill that is under two pounds...I might just remove it. Like a prior reviewer stated, don't put anything under the charcoal portion that will be disturbed by the heat, so for me...the only thing I "could" use the rack for is paper plates...but I'm not putting that kind of paper that close under the grill. I also have a dedicated "BBQ area". I have a picnic table a few steps sway...which is also the reason, for me, the rack is useless. If you can use the rack...install it. The "lone perk" to not installing the rack...you don't care where the legs go, which would save 5 minutes on putting it together(the legs aren't marked well to know which corner they need to go on...and the specific corner only matters for the rack) 07/04/2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rayman52 Happy with purchase While I haven't had the grill long enough to tell how it will hold up, so far its doing great.First positive was the buying experience, I purchased online and when I went to the store to pick up the grill I was informed that I was getting money back due to a price drop, not bad considering I didn't have to ask and ended up with $40 bucks back in my pocket.There are lots of parts but the instructions were decent except for a few screws I couldn't find but they ended up already being screwed into the burner. Everything fitted together perfectly, you can tell they built this with assembly in mind but it did take a couple of hours so have a few beers or beverages on hand.Its important to cure the grill as noted in the instructions or you can always find alternatives on youtube.For the money, this thing has plenty of nice options, adjustable charcoal grill, removable pan, and side burner, and a charcoal / gas combo, all for around $150 bucks. I plan on keeping it covered and cured once a year in hopes that this will last a few years, it's not stainless steel so I'm not expecting it to last forever but long enough to get a few good cooking seasons out of it.I'm making one modification which is to cut a hole in between the charcoal and gas grills, will fit it with a sliding vent door so I can open it up and use the charcoal side as a smoker box for the gas grill side. 03/23/2013
