Any of you have this grill?

Char-BroilŽ TRU-InfraredŽ Grill2GoŽ ... : Target

We just ordered it, getting it overnighted for the trip this week. We watched videos of it.

Appears to do a jam up job!

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 have tried several grills that use the 64oz. propane bottles and find them inadequate when it comes to cooking in a breeze. Not enough pressure in the small bottles. If this one can be converted (or connected) to a 20 or 30 lb tank it may be a good investment. Let us know how it works out for you.

I don't know anything about the portable one, but I use a larger tru-infrared grill at home. It is clearly the best grill I have ever used. The infrared cooking is fantastic. It never flares up and it doesn't dry out the meat. You'll love it.

Ahh yes, the "no flare" was/is a selling point for us. In spite of the name, I do *not* like a char on my steaks, not to the point of being crisp at least. If I want char I can just eat the charcoal and save the money spent on $15.00/ea ribeyes.

Wish I had $5.00 for every plastic coke bottle lid I've taken a hot ice pic to, making a water spritzer bottle for DH.

Thanks for the review. And yes, we'll report back after using it for this upcoming trip.

I'm like a kid approaching the first day of school. Closer we get to Friday wee hours AM the more excited I'm getting!

Actually I'm feelin' like we kids did just before Mom and Dad took us on those 2 week vacations every year, touring the country in a station wagon...no interstates back then.

Sittin on ready rockin on geaux!

This one can be converted, so sez DH, it has an available adapter/hose.

I really like the carry/tote bag for it as well.

Grill in a duffle bag...easy breezy!

the grill arrived a bit ago. OK, now I see how they can say "no flare ups". VERY smart construction and design. The actual flame never gets to the food being grilled except maybe small fractures of flame as there are small slits in the grill surface.

We got the carry case for it also. LOVE this grill! At first I thought we'd try it out tonight, then decided, nyet, don't wanna have to clean it before packing it up for the trip. That carry case makes it a snap to pack up and take along. And the grease catcher is a snap to install/remove and clean.

can't wait to try this grill! Will report back on how it cooks a ribeye or three.

You will be pleasantly surprised. Everything I make on mine comes out better than on any grill I have ever used before.

I had looked at this same grill at Dick's not too long ago (but I'm a grill-a-holic). Let us know how it works out.

I have a Char-broil infrared turkey fryer, that my family would disown me if I ever got rid of it.

We went to Dick's to buy this gril, wmtire, and they don't have it any more this "season". grrrrr They're moving in to fall stock...camo, bows, etc.

So, we ordered direct from CharBroil, got it overnighted to us.

GHO, DH decided we'll grill on it tonight...got some "economy ribeyes" thawin in the kitchen sink right now.

wmtire, have you ever bought those steaks from that grocery store just South of us? They're included in those "5 for $19.00" deals. They're thin, and about 2 minutes on each side will have 'em well done....i.e. too done for us. I love the thin pork chops they have in that special. SO easy to fry up for dinner....errrr supper here in the South.

Will let y'all know!
