Not much on gassers, but I do know that Charbroil partnereed with TEC ( they blazed the way in Infrared cooking) in a few models and all of them I saw were quite a bit under $1000.

Here's one

I used TEC charbroilers in a restraunt setting for a few years, and wasn't impressed. The whole IR sear thing is nice if the only thing you are cooking is thin and uniform in thickness, but if you want to cook anything thicker than about 3/4 of an inch, chances are pretty good the outside is going to burn long before the inside gets beyond medium. Might be OK for beef, but............ JMO:shrug:

IMHO, IR is good for heating your garage, but not much for cooking, but if someone else wants it, who am I to judge.:shrug:

Hi all, Thx for the replies. They claim 1800 degree searing. I like the outside of my steak burnt, the meat rare. Kinda like bark and beef. I like rotissarie chicken,for crispy skin. My smoked chicken skin is never that way.From niether my offset or cookshack. Keepin mind I'm greener than grass so all help, is greatly welcome.

:roflmaoha0::roflmaoha0:

It looks like it's very portable too. :msn-wink:

Bill, I like my steaks rare, too. I'm not much on the over toasted outside though. Ah shoot, what am I saying? I pretty much like a steak anyway it's made as long as it's not overcooked.

Your chicken skin will most likely never be crisp on your Cookshack, but it will be on your Offset if you will cook at emps in the 325-350 range.

You should be able to get sufficient temps for a good sear on just about any quality gasser.

:roflmaoha0::roflmaoha0: Good to see some are almost as warped as me.:msn-wink: Good belly laugh, Guess that's why I like it here so much.

Thanks SmokeyOkie, I'll try the higher temp, I've been doing them at 275-300.

For the money you are spending you can get a Primo or BGE, They will give you a pit that will sear steaks, cook low and slow and are a pizza oven if you want.
