Poor design and worksmanship
1 Star Review   By Fred on Home Depot - May 24, 2013   

Cheap offset smoker. Will not maintain heat in cooking chamber. Black paint started to fade after a few smoke outs. Spend a little more to get something that works. You get what you pay for.

Worst grill
1 Star Review   By gborocb on Home Depot - Apr 9, 2013   

This is the worst grill I've ever owned. The coals in the side box stay hot for a good while, but the heat does not transfer into the cooking chamber. After the temperature gauge reaches the 300 degree mark, it descends steadily into the 125-150 degree range, hardly hot enough to cook anything. It is also poorly designed. Whoever at Char-Broil designed this grill with a grease cup underneath needs to go back to the drawing board.

great little BBQ
4 Star Review   By techiegrandpa on Home Depot - Feb 10, 2013   

I bought this to replace a 20 yr. old similar off-set smoker/BBQ. This one has 2 grills over the smoker box charcoal grates as opposed to 1 I had before and 3 in the cooking area as opposed to 2... my only problem is that the cooking area above the smoker box grates on the 400 series is much smaller than I was used to. I now wish that I had purchased the 700 series, for I do a lot of cooking over the charcoal in the smoker box and now have moved to the larger area for cooking just for the room. The BBQ itself is good, the instructions suggest having 2 people to assemble it, but I did it alone and it was not hard and actually quite enjoyable. The only bad thing that I can find to say about it is that after you are done grilling/cooking and close all vents, it is not completely air-tight and the remaining charcoal burns out instead of going out. If you have a small area and do not cook a lot at a time, then i would recommend this product all day long, but if you are going to want to cook a lot at once, do yourself a favor and upgrade to the 700 series and you will not be disappointed !!
