I bought this grill to replace a two year old, rather expensive Brinkman grill, in which all steel parts had heavily rusted, some all the way through, including a cast iron burner, even though it had been covered. This grill was worth every penny I paid for it, even if it does only last a few years. It cooks very evenly, temperature is easy to control, flares are easy to control, and, it's easy to clean. Once assembled, it's very sturdy, unlike a lot of grills we looked at. Future replacement parts will be easy to find, since virtually every store that sells grills, sells Char Broil parts and accessories. I would have given it a 5 star rating, if not for two things. NOTHING on this grill is preassembled. So, if you are intimidated by assembling a grill, pay the extra to have it assembled at the store. That being said, with nothing more than a phillips screw driver, and pair of pliers, I had it together and cooking on it in about an hour. The other thing, although they are rarely accurate, a temperature guage would have been nice. But, what can you expect for under a hundred bucks. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase. It cooks evenly, and quickly. It cleans up easy, the little rack on the front is handy, as well as the tool hangers on the shelf. And, most importantly, the food tastes great!
