Comment:
This grill we had less then 3 years and the entire bottom rusted out and Charbroil would not send us replacement parts. They claimed that because we covered it; it trapped moisture under it therefore rusting out. I will never buy another Charbroil again. I was so upset because they only offered us a 50% discount on the replacement parts. I went out and bought myself a Weber this time around.
How long have you owned it:
