The Char-Broil 4-Burner gas grill is a powerful barbecue grill with several features, making it an excellent choice for your backyard or patio. It can generate plenty of heat from its four primary burners, and has a lot of cooking space allowing you to cater to small or large parties. This is a well-constructed grill with a lifetime burner warranty, so you can feel safe in your purchase of a Char-Broil 4-Burner gas grill.
The four primary burners on this Char-Broil gas grill can generate up to 48,000 BTUs. BTUs, or British Thermal Units, are helpful in measuring the level of heat a grill can generate. We recommend gas grills with at least 44,000 BTUs for a standard-size grill, and the Char-Broil 4-Burner meets this qualification with room to spare. This grill also has a 10,000 BTU flush-mounted side burner, which has a convenient cover. The electronic ignition system provides additional convenience, allowing for quick startup of all of the grill's burners.
This gas grill has 480 square inches of cooking space, along with 205 square inches of warming rack area. This isn't the most cooking space we saw available from our top gas grills, but the Char-Broil 4-Burner makes the most of its space along with the four primary burners. The flush side burner allows the space to be used as both a cooking area and a side storage shelf when it isn't needed. There is an additional side shelf on this gas grill for storage, along with a built-in temperature gauge to help you monitor your barbecue. Unfortunately, the Char-Broil 4-Burner does not have a natural gas option.
This is a smaller gas grill, weighing in at 116 pounds and standing 56 inches tall. The housing material is stainless steel and the cooking grates are porcelain coated, helping to prevent rust and wear along the outsides of the grill while keeping food from sticking to the grids. Anyone who has cleaned a grill knows how helpful a porcelain coating can be, as food tends to stick stubbornly to the metal grating without it.
The stainless steel burners on this Char-Broil 4-Burner gas grill are covered by a lifetime warranty. Char-Broil stands firmly behind its products and wants the customer to feel confident knowing that they can have their burners replaced at any point in the grill's lifespan. Other parts are covered for one year, which is nice but could be better. The Char-Broil website contains helpful FAQs sections as well as an online manual to cover the basics of your 4-Burner grill. Furthermore, if you require individual assistance, you can reach a Char-Broil representative via phone or email. They also have videos on their website covering some of the common questions about grill ownership.
The Char-Broil 4-Burner gas grill will make an excellent addition to your outdoor cooking environment. This grill is powerful, well designed and covered by a lifetime burner warranty.
