Full Review – Char-Griller 3-Burner

Strip a gas grill down to its basics and you might get something like the Char-Griller 3-Burner. True, this grill comes with a side burner that might or might not be something you need, but as for grilling, it is hard to make a grill that is simpler. The body of this grill is just a metal barrel cut in half (actually it isn’t, but). This is an attempt to reproduce the appearance of old school charcoal grills that people used to make out of metal oil drums.

Three gas burners sit inside and it even has a pair of largely pointless smoke stacks on top. These are really just decorations, but they fit the styling. Considering the price, you can’t expect a lot from a grill like this, but for a basic burger grill, it isn’t a bad unit to consider. It won’t last long, but then you do get what you pay for and for the price, you can get a little more out of this grill than you can the competition.
