Description

This Char-Griller hybrid barbecue allows you to choose between propane gas or charcoal grilling at your convenience. It features 3 main burners with a total output of 40,800 BTUs along with a side burner that generates 12,000 BTUs for even more capacity. With easy-to-clean cooking grates, it provides even heat distribution. Moreover, you'll be able to keep your food warm until it's ready to serve thanks to a chrome-plated rack. There are two thermometers for heat monitoring, and a fixed shelf gives you additional prep space. The charcoal-cooking portion of this BBQ has an adjustable grate as well as an ash pan. This product is backed by a 5-year limited warranty on the body, and a 1-year limited warranty on remaining parts.
  • Char-Griller Duo dual-function combo grill offers the benefit of gas and charcoal grilling on the same cart for convenience, fun and flavor all-in-one
  • 3 durable stainless steel burners deliver a total of 40,800 maximum BTUs to grill ribs, chicken or burgers simultaneously, and the 12,000-BTU side burner offers extra cooking space for side dishes or sauces
  • Porcelain-coated cast-iron cooking grates maintain consistent temperatures, prevent food from sticking and are easy to clean for a hassle-free grilling experience
  • 384-sq in warming racks provide additional space for cooking corn-on-the-cob, kabobs, toasting buns or keeping foods heated until serving time
  • Electronic ignition provides quick, reliable startups with the push of a button
  • Side burner with a flip-down cover converts to a fixed side shelf, offering increased surface space for food prep, utensils or dishes
  • 2 built-in temperature gauges allow you to easily monitor heat levels to prevent overcooking, and the dual smokestacks help create even heat across the cooking surface, so food cooks at the same rate
  • Adjustable charcoal tray offers added heat control, and the removable ash catcher allows for a trouble-free cleanup
  • Grill converts to a Texas-style smoker when you attach the Char-Griller side firebox (sold separately)

No. Buy a charcoal chimney. $15-20. Watch a YouTube video on how to use it. Works great. Get yourself a large steel garbage can.

Char-Griller DUO 5050 Gas and Charcoal Grill - Steel - 1,260-sq. in. - Black is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1184.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not last more than a year I bought this grill with high hopes. I really liked the idea of an all-in-one grill. I even purchased the smoker add-on. I have gone through two cover due to the fact that they do not hold up to the elements...UV damage and are not waterproof. No, I can't figure out the point of them either. The grill cooks too hot on the lowest setting but after 7-8 months you will not have to worry about that because it will have rusted out. Mine rusted from outside in and inside out. The ignitor has not worked for months and now the whole inside has rust through. Do not listen to folks that add their review after their first burger. It will NOT last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! My husband couldn't decide whether he wanted a gas or charcoal grill. With his 30th birthday coming up, I had to make a decision fast! Out of all of the choices out there, I couldn't have gotten more lucky with the Duo grill. My husband, and our guests at his party, were blown away! Since the then, we've used our grill at least once, if not twice, a week. The gas is great when we are in a hurry, but the charcoal side gives us the option to do slower and smokier flavors. The side burner is an incredible addition. One night, we cooked our entire meal with the grill! Meat, vegetables and rice cooking all at the same time can't get any easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Grill - Second Time Buyer I just purchased this grill for the second time. I am an avid smoker and griller "year round" so my grill is out on the deck 24/7. I was so pleased with it the first time, I "had" to have it again when it was replacement time. After getting spoiled with its duo abilities and sq. inches of cooking space, and its durability I couldn't settle for less. Friends and family are envious of this grill and are never disappointed on the food that comes off from it. I hope that Char Griller continues to make this grill for a very long time, because I am recommending it any time I can. What was even more amazing was that it was still the same price that I paid 5 years ago! Nice!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd year of owning the Char-Griller The wife bought me this grill gas/charcoal combo 3 years ago and she also bought me the side add-on smoker grill. I have to say this is the best grill I have ever owned and I am 53yrs old. This system puts out the best tasting dishes. I can be smoking meat on the charcoal/smoker side, while also cooking corn on the cob on the gas side. I've also cooked for huge gatherings and used the gas side to keep the food warm, after cooking it over the coals. I've used this grill for 3yrs now and have not had even one issue with it. I highly recommend getting the small add-on smoker/side grill, it just makes this system so much more usable and makes it look even that much more impressive when you show it off to family and friends.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust bucket [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The duo started out good. However within 12 months, it started rusting despite the fact it was seasoned, always covered and cleaned after use. Thermometers went bad around the same time as well. The flame guards started disintegrating along with the brackets that hold them up. Chargriller customer service said it was my fault it rusted and their no rust warranty didn’t cover it. They were happy to send me the link for the $150.00 worth of replacement parts I could order. Worst grill I’ve ever had. Never buy that brand again. It’s heading to the metal recycling dump with pleasure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great purchase Gas grilling is very easy anyone can do it . Now when you want to step out of your comfort zone and really start grilling and smoking this is a great product, the price is good and the possibilities are endless for experimentation with smoke. Never the less you can always use the gas side if you do not like the charcoal side or use it if u are cooking a lot of food along with the charcoal side .Keep it clean use a cover and take care of it as u would any purchase and it will take care of you . Having a lot of fun with this grill cooking more outside and spending a lot of quality time with the family OUTSIDE!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rusty barrel I bought this grill almost two years ago for father’s day. I have had to change the heat deflectors out because they rusted away. I was going to change out the deflectors and the barrel came apart. It had rusted completely through. I called Lowes and was told that since I didn’t purchase the extended warranty they could do nothing for me. They transferred me to the Char-Griller service line. They said there was only a one year warranty and they could do nothing for me. The grill worked fine when it was new. If you expect this grill to last for a few years forget it. If you buy this grill I would recommend that you purchase the three or five year warranty. You will need it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awful Quality Outweighs the Features I can only guess the five star reviews are fairly new owners because I LOVED it for months. But this is the absolute worst quality grill I have ever owned and you should not buy one. Rust began after just a few months. Grates are literally disintegrating in every use and cost a fortune to replace. Not kidding, the grates and entire grill are disintegrating! I even use a matching grill cover. One smoke stack is rusting completely off and I haven't had this grill even 2 years. I have had really cheap grills last twice as long. I read bad reviews about the quality but was so intrigued by this grill. I should have listened.
