I have read many mixed reviews about this grill, but I have had no issues so far. I did have one small dent in the very back of the grill, but it was so miniscule I did not bother returning the grill. This grill is fantastic for the price you pay for it. I love cooking steaks on the Infrared, as well as chicken, and even tenderloin. My favorite method is to light both sides, and sear the meat on the IR side, then finish it on the regular side. It makes for some very tasty meat! I read a review about low temperatures when cooking on this grill, so I tested it, and I got the main unit up to about 600 degrees before lowering the temperature. The IR side was above 600 before I turned it down. Make sur to check your tubes, because they make all the difference. You can but similar but more expensive grills, but I do feel this one does quite comparably against them. If you are a person who just has to have the best of the best, I would definitely get a more expensive grill. If you are, like me, on a budget and want a grill that has the expensive look as well as the features of a $1000, get this grill. I have not been disappointed at all. Oh, and for anyone wanting to get a bit of charcoal flavor, here's a tip: Fill an aluminum foil pouch full of crushed charcoal, poke some small holes in the top, and heat it on the main part of the grill for just a few minutes. I would find the charcoal that is lighter fluid free, so you don't get excess chemicals in your food. Once the pouch gets a good line of smoke coming out, place it on one of the top racks and start cooking. Make sure to close the lid any time you can, because then the food gets smoked by charcoal, just as you would with hickory or any other flavor. Voila!!! Charcoal taste on a gas grill!!! Once again, for anyone who likes a great grill and does not require the grill to raise their "status", this is a great grill with cheap replacement parts, which is also awesome.
