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.

Nice grill for the price
Only had it 3 weeks, seems like pretty decent product. The cover is a "must have" and is very well made. My grill arrived in a beat up box due to shipping and took about 3 hrs. to assemble. A couple of flanges had some minor bends that were easily straightened and the weld on the charcoal lifter was broken so it wouldn't lift.
I re-welded it myself and it works fine ( there's no way you could get it all back in the box to send it back) Take care of it and it should last a while. Keep the griddle

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

Got this for my son for Christmas. He loves it just the right size being by himself
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.

The grill I purchased came on the date they set thru FedEx.I was very pleased with the help I got 1at store because they didn't have any in stock.Tnx guys
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

May not be the #1 brand but sometimes you don't have to be number one to be a very solid contender and a quality item.
3 burner Infrared grill with side burner too. Frankly my only negative comment which I will get out-of-the-way first is that I've never seen the benefit of a side burner on any grill---I may be missing the boat but I never have used it on my previous grills I probably will not use it on this one either. The grill is very nice looking and sturdy. The hook up for the LP gas
... read more tank was very easy and it is stored behind the front panels of the grill as you see in most grills this size. I read the manual as I have never used an infrared cooking system before. It emphasize that the grill cooks much more hot temperature wise and that food is more moist and doesn't take as long to cook. I found all of that to be true. It's very easy to light up the grill with the electronic igniter that is run by a single AA battery which came with the grilling to Bentley. Indeed I have cooked steak, burgers, and hotdogs very successfully. They all came out juicy and delicious. The only thing I had a problem with was the chicken that I grilled as the grill is truly hot even on low so unfortunately I burned it but not so bad that we couldn't eat it. Lesson learned maybe indirect heat next time! Really enjoying this product.
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.

Good Bang for the Buck
Bought just over a month ago and am very pleased. I clean it after every use and have it covered not exposing it to the weather. A great product for the price if you give it TLC.
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.
