Bought this grill to replace the smaller version. The old one is 14 years old and still in great condition, but I keep it in the garage so it's not exposed to the weather. This bigger one is going to allow me to cook a week's worth of meat at a time (I like to do that and then freeze it).
If you want the best charcoal grill you have ever owned, then buy a CharGriller! I now have both a 4-grate and a 5-grate grill. Will not own another kind any more. We used the 5-grate grill for the first time a couple weeks ago for a church cookout. The temp got up to 500 degrees and held the heat way past when we were done cooking. We sure wished we had a stack of ribeyes to put on it!
Easy to put together. Huge cooking surface. I highly recommend this amazing grill!
