Bought this gill at the store and decided to have it delivered and assembled. If ordered online a $99 delivery fee. By buying at store and having it assembled and delivered for only $119. The best idea ever, they called 2 days prior to delivery and the contractors were polite and efficient, they left no mess and the grill was ready for use. I have had grills costing 3 times as much and gotten less than half the value and performance.

My wife bought me this grill about three weeks ago, First night used griddle for shrimp and fajitas and was searing and cooking steaks at the same time, holds heat good, very well put together. Can't say about longevity yet but I am very happy withe grill.
I've had this grill for half a year now. It's good. I don't know about 16 burgers at once though LOL, maybe my burgers are just big. Either way, I use it for meals and gets the job done. I have a propane - huge- event grill that I was using, but this is better for just the family. About lighting the coal, I have no idea what the person in the other review is doing wrong. There is a trick to opening the bottom, you have to kind of lift, then pull to open it. I though it was stuck the first

best low cost pit I've owned
I bought this a couple about a week ago to take a break from my wood smoker, and I read a ton of reviews before deciding on this unit. It is great. It's small, definitely won't fit ten burgers or however many they claim, but that's nothing to complain about in my opinion. The picture shows it to be a smaller pit, and it also tells you the size of cooking space. I use about 1/5 of the amount of charcoal I'm used to, and the fire stays hot and burns longer than most pits. I used the smallest bag

We bought this grill a couple of weeks ago, and are very satisfied with the product. It was delivered when promised, and was easy to put together. We have already used it several times, and enjoy the food cooked on it.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband and he loves it. It is very large and the heating rack is very useful. We did not have any problem keeping it hot, and it never got too hot as some of the other reviewers have mentioned. We love this grill and reccomend it to anyone looking for a large grill at a good price. For the money you can't beat it.
I have the large Blackstone and very well pleased but I seen this smaller one at Academy and was impressed so I purchased. I cooked on it several times and was NOT pleased with the coating on the griddle surface, being experienced in cooking on a different brand and a collector of antique cast iron I am very experienced in seasoning cast or steel. I took the griddle top and had it sand blasted, then seasoned it 3 times with Flax Oil and a final seasoning with Crisbee, now it is as non stick as

I BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT APRIL THIS YEAR AND PRETTY MUCH COOK WHATEVER I WANT. GREAT ITEM TO COOK OUTSIDE BY THE SWIMMING POOL.
Bought this grill for my Aunt, and it's the perfect size and weight for her. It's a little cheaply degisn, but what do you expect for 99 bucks? As long as you keep it covered and clean, it will last a very long time. It on weighs about 40 lbs when put together, and can be used on trips. It only takes 15 minutes to put together. Very easy to take apart and put back together. My Aunt and I are very happy with it.

3 burner cooks hot
I bought mine over two years ago,it is a great grill for what i use it for. I cook less than 6 things on it Pizzas, fajitas, burgers , hot dogs, sausage. It cooks really hot but when cooking what i cook that is what i want i like to flame grill. And for cooking pizzas it is great because you can get the temp to 800 degrees.
As far as construction it is average that being said i have not had one problem with with except the cheap plastic tires that came on it ( Quick 10 dollar fix i bought
... read more some rubber lawn mower tires at harbor freight 4 dollars each)
Over all this is a excellent grill if you know how you will use it. It is not for smoking a brisket or cooking chicken you should use a charcoal grill for that , but if you want to flame cook or cook something really hot this is your grill. I get home from work put some burgers and hot dogs and i flame grill them in 10 to 15 minutes same with fajitas fire up the grill throw them on 15 to 20 minutes done perfect seared outside juicy inside.
I bought a competitors griddle first however returned it because the legs where flimsy and the unit was unstable. Rather than trying another unit, I decided to buy the larger - much larger 50" griddle. I took it to the river to feed 18 people. It work great! if you do a lot of cooking; this is the best thing ever. It has become my new backyard favorite cooking tool. The only thing keeping it form a 5 star is the actual top itself. If you buy a unit, make sure the cook top does not "rock" back
... read more and forth. Its large, heavy and is difficult to keep level from the welding process during fabrication. With that said, my second cook top didn't "rock" but it sags slightly in the middle. fortunately it sags in the middle and to the front so oils and run off from cooking doesn't pool on the cooking surface. I went to a restaurant supply and bought some higher end griddle spatula and a high end cleaning/scraper tool. Clean the top with a squirt bottle of water and paper towels after each use. Finish up with a light coat of Pam or peanut oil after each use and it will season perfectly over time.
