    Default gas grill for son

    i'm buying my son a gas grill for his appt. I'm considering a chargriller gas for $199 assembled at acadamy sports. I have a 9 y/o chargriller w/sfb and have been impressed with the value for the money. anyone with experience with the chargriller gas or uses the gas side of a chargriller duo?

    I don't have a lot of experience with the gasser type grills. I know that there is quite a selection out there, and there are quite a few friends here that will be able to offer help. It wouldn't surprise me to know that there are restrictions at your sons appt complex that do not allow anything but gas. Charcoal has been restricted for years at many apartments.

    I have the CG Duo along with a few others here. I use the gas side and haven't had any problems with it so far. I would like for the Duo cooking space to be bigger on both sides. But it is big enough to take care of a small meal.

    Be careful not to get too many of those pre-fabbed burgers on at once, they tend to want to flare up pretty good.

    If you have a specific question about it - let us know

    Not familar with those units, but for gas grills in general I prefer the deflector rather than lava rock. All but eliminate flareups.

    Also, make sure that he knows not to crank the heat up. Keep it low or it'll burn.

    If you have not bought a gas grill for your son, have a look at the Weber Q200 series (200/220) you can cook direct and indirect on them. They are easy to clean ( less than 5 minutes) and are portable. Ideal for apartments and large enough to cook for a crowd ( with a bit of planning. You can fit 2 full chickens on a roasting rack/trivet in them. I have had one for 5 years.
