Comment:
Have had this grill with Natural gas conversion kit. Note I have not tried this with propane gas. <br /><br />I found that the flame is really low, and takes forever to heat up. I have had my natural gas power checked by proffesionals, and that is fine.<br /><br />As soon as you open the hood, the grill cools down. Not recommended.

Bought grill with old style stainless grates and infrared pans. Is a mess and very difficult to clean. I am ordering new grates (porcelain I think), but have also lost one thermostat and igniter. Contacted CH and they suggested new igniter. Not only is it hard to install but did not work. would not buy another infrared. Only Positive is Charbroil customer service is good.
