Product okay, shipping horrible box was destroyed.For the price it's a decent product but some stuff is just not great quality. The box was destroyed and held together with packing tape. The bottom tray was dented and bent a but so it doesn't fit the frame as well as it could.

An excellent Grill.I just got this girl for Christmas, but I've used it just about every day. This is an amazing Grill. You can't beat it for the price. The quality of the craftsmanship of this Grill is astounding. Completely controlled air flow, being able to raise and lower your coal and completely control the temperature you're wanting to cook at is awesome. The fact that it's got four wheels on it instead of two, and two of which are locking Wheels to hold it steady just another good feature. Plenty of room to cook, no matter what you're trying to cook. Thanks to the coal tray being removable and the drip pan easily removable, it makes for extremely easy cleanup. And the door on the bottom allows easy access to the coal pan to add more charcoal and or wood for cooking. I would highly recommend this grill to anybody.

Terrible grill that holds no heatIf all you cook are hamburgers, maybe this is an ok choice, though expensive. However, if you are a serious griller, avoid this grill like the plague. It holds no heat because of the vented charcoal pan, so your temperature plummets after an hour. And the heat is so dissipated by the pan that it will not light any added charcoal. I am terribly disappointed in this product.

Love Char Broil Charcoal Grills ..... but .....Just replaced my very old Char Broil Charcoal Grill for a new one - 780, and I do love it! Plenty of space for grilling, warming etc.. love the side shelves, as always. It was fairly easy to assemble.
The grates are very easy to clean.. burned off the food, & when it was cool I soaked them.. they washed easily ...
But ... you changed the pan that holds the charcoal. I understand this pan with ridges holds the stacks of charcoal better.. but it's more difficult to clean. With the old flat pan, I brushed the ash, it fell in the drawer, and I only had to empty the ash drawer... with the new design, I have to remove the ash drawer & the charcoal pan for cleaning.
otherwise .. Love this grill!

Coal tray is not fully thought out.Coal tray is not fully thought out. Coal it is not inflated, quickly extinguished. It takes a lot of coal.

Poor designGrill grates do not quite fit on the firebox shelf, medium pressure of grill brush sends the grate into the coals. The adjustable fire shelf does not go down far enough to access it through the front door. Very disappointed with the quality of the design.

Solid grilling machineAssembly: pretty involving, i consider myself pretty handy and it took me atleast 2 hours to put this thing together. Don't plan on grilling the same night you start assembling
Design/Quality: The quality good, everything is stamped metal. It's got 4 wheels, making it easy to manuver (my previous Charbroils had only 2). The vents on the cover are nice and large. Wish the bottom had bigger vents as well. The side-shelves are functional, but ugly, wish they had put more into aesthetics. Not sure how useful the bottom door is going to be, the ability to get more coal in there is pretty tight unless you have the right sized shovel.
1) Big size, lots of room to work with
2) Crank adjustable coal tray - good for searing meats. Can get those coals within 1 inch of the grill
3) Lots of venting options for controlling airflow
4) 4 separate grills make the grilling surface very modular
5) Easy to clean, because the coal tray is easy to remove.
1) The stamped metal side-shelves are ugly and collect rainwater
2) The crank mechanisms has lots of moving parts and seems like it won't hold up well out in the elements. Only time will tell
3) The coal tray is solid metal, only vented at the ridges. This makes the coals burn cooler and slower. This can be good or bad depending on what you're cooking
4) The Door is cool-looking, but not sure it would be too useful for adding more coal. Probably easier to just go thru the grills. Still good for getting more air into the grill though. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

we are enjoying our new grill so much, but at the time of building it we had some problems, some screws didn't work.
