WOW!

I purchased one several months ago. Be careful as it cooks fast. Heats up quickly and in order to control the temperature you may have to turn it off and then back on. Satisfied so far.

CharBroil Grill2Go X200 is fantastic! The design is brilliant. I have been a charcoal only snob for a very long time. I am thoroughly impressed with this grill. It is a portable, so it's a bit small. It is big enough to cook 4 steaks easily though. What a great job it does.

This grill produces the juiciest meat I've ever grilled. No question about it. It cooks quickly and very evenly. The grill marks are beautiful and the sear is very very good. I recommend this grill very highly.

And wmtire, as you asked in PM, yep it cooks 4 steaks at a time, and keep in mind those were thin ribeyes so they were streeeeeched out quite a bit, and still fit 4 on there at a time.

One weird thing about it is that no-flare-up feature...when a flame flares, there's a poof or puff sound...the shield over the flames poofs it out.

Scared me when it first did that.

Right now we have the red Coleman with the scissor type legs. It's fine for patio grilling, but it is too heavy, and awkward to move..and NO where near enough grill space over the burners.
I got one this spring and have been really impressed. Debated about getting a weber q120, but this one has slightly more cooking area in a better square shape, and stores in a physically smaller area than the weber q120. It gets hot fast, will stay at 350 on low, and stays lit in a breeze. Debating to convert it to a quick connect to avoid using tanks, but I don't think it could be done to easily switch back & forth. A tanks lasts quite a while and i plan on using it tailgating for football games this fall.

According to DH, you can order the adapter kit to convert to the RV gas.

I just did the clean up. The grill cleans up really well and easily. It's dried, packed back in the duffle bag and "staged" for load out Thursday evening.

The steaks we grilled tonight were sacrificial in nature The first meat cooked on a new grill isn't going to be all that good. I told wmtire that the first four had a bit of a chemical taste, which I'm sure is from the new grill surface, as it turned blue then purple as it heated up.

The remaining four were quite good, and we didn't use any seasoning or marinade, just thawed 'em and slapped 'em on the grill.

As DH said (Fritz) the grill marks are impressive and as the steaks rested there was LOTS of juice!

We like our steaks *rare* so yep, it was slap it on...turn it once, and take it off, especially with such thin steaks.


Can't wait to try it on a couple of over-night marinated 1.5" Angus rib eyes.

I haven't found an adapter that will fit. Send a link if you have. On this grill, the regulator is connected to the control knob, so removing the regulator would also remove the knob. Unlike the Weber grills where you just remove the regulator. It could be done by replacing the temp control knob and regulator with a different knob and a quick connect. If the threads were to match up.

instead of 1pound bottles, get yourself a 5 pound tank. They're cost effective and not heavy. Mine weighs about 15 pounds full. I can get it refilled at most hardware stores...some places won't sell propane by the gallon. My grill came with an adapter. I can cookout (breakfast and dinner) for a couple of weeks before refilling.
