    Great versatile grill for all levels of grilling enthusiasts. I can honestly say that I have worn mine out. I use it on the average of 2-3 times a week and it spent one year on the backyard cookout trail. Being a "Master" Griller, I never had much use for gas, but after a competition during a tropical depression, I realized that perhaps there was a place for it. I plan to purchase a new one soon and it will take its rightfull place as my go-to grill at home. Absolutely love it, and I own sveral more costlier grills.

    How to not experience Buyers Remorse? Research, scrutinize warranties and heed bad reviews. It's common knowledge that bad reviews do not and will never make it to the top of the review pile. So did deep people.

    My first mistake was an impulse buy, boy I really wanted the best of both grilling worlds and I want it now. This grill was my baby and I maintained it like it was my religion. Within a year the thermometer broke and I noticed rust, wire brushed it off and coated with heat resistant paint then oiled it up. Year and half, burner covers started to look frail and rust was back. Year 2, legs are completely rusted out, burner covers crumbled from rust and I'm left with a hunk of junk that is literally on its last leg.

    Contacted Char Griller - they only honor 1 year warranty and rust is not included. Only manufactures defects. I consider selling low quality parts at high quality pricing a manufactures defect. Parts I need cost $55-$75 and they have the nerve to charge $25 for shipping. At least make the parts affordable to those who trusted your company. $400 for 2.5 years, plus the time I spent maintaining it, is not my idea of money well spent.

    You've been warned.

      This is a great grill...I've had mine at least 5 years and I love to be able to use gas and coal at the same time. It is not stainless steel so it requires old school maintenance. The molded cover isn't very good. It has too many leaky seams. I use a heavy duty tarp.. I clean my grill occasionally with a cotton rag and cooking oil. Rust has to be dealt with immediately, with a dab of navel jelly and high heat paint. There are stainless hybrid grills available for about 15,000 dollars.Mine has survived 2 devastating hurricanes and hundreds of inches of snow..

              Inside grill surface/ and warming racks rust.
              Inside surfaces rusting also/unit 3 years old/bought cover and kept inside during winter.
              Heavy to move around, warming racks hard to replace.
              Main frame bottom also rusting through.

                    I agree with several of the other users. When I first purchased this grill I LOVED it. Sometimes I used both the charcoal and gas at the same time. I use it approximately 3 to 4 times a week. The grill is very heavy so I was very surprised that after one year I was already getting rust all over the insides and outside and I used the cover. The other day, my middle ceramic rack fell into the heat shield. The back rack support had completely rusted out. Such a shame because the concept is so good. I've had it for 2 years.

                      Brisket,Ribs,Burgers,Shoulders.....anything you can cook including pizza you can do on this grill.

                      Only drawback that has since been resolved -it had no wheels on the smoker box end.One modification that I did make was to (and wheels).The new ones now have coasters on the legs which make it easier to move around.

                      I use my Char-Griller/Duo Gas Grill pretty regular and love cooking on it and love the option of gas or charcoal. That being said, it does not hold up too well to the weather even with the cover that goes with it. The ceramic cooking surface on the gas grill has not held up well and is chipping exposing the rusty metal. I am not sure if I would purchase another one.

                        I use mine more for smoking and it does a great job. Easy set up and use. I have had so many comments on the grill/smoker and on the food that comes off of it. keep it covered and inside storage is the best for it and it will last for many years or many Briskets.

                              At first glance this grill looks pretty sturdy. However, after less than 1 season of use this thing is toast.
                              I purchased the custom cover for it,(and actually used it). Looking at the outside of grill it looks like a 1 year old grill, but open it up and EVERY portion is rusted. The heat diverters have rusted through completely.
