    Gravity 980 Thoughts

    Finally got the new CharGrill Gravity 980. So far have not cooked anything but here are a few observations.
    It comes in a large box and weighs close to 200 lbs. It's amazingly engineered getting everything packed safely in that box. So you get everything undamaged but a LOT of packing materials to get rid of.
    Directions to put together are steps with pictures. No tips or basic what you are doing. Especially for the electronics.
    This is a two man job. I would suggest you clean up a 10 X 20 foot area. Unpack the box and spread stuff out so you know what you have, then review the directions.
    It took my son and I two hours to put this together. I had to leave for work and have not gotten the burn and seasoning done yet.
    Next will be learning how it works.

    The 980 is a great grill. Keeps temperature fine and has good even heat.
    Two things. The blue tooth has a pretty short range. If it only works 15 feet away not a lot of help.
    Also been having trouble with ash. When I shut it down after a cook, it ends up with 2 inches of ash above the starter. Hard to clean with a third full of coal. Also hard to re-start with 2 inches of ash sitting in there.
    Has this happened to anyone else? What have you been doing?
    Thanks

      No help since I don't have one, but pics please? Give me a reason to want another grill.

        I was going to suggest a WiFi extender but then I realized it doesn’t have WiFi.

        With regards to the ash, pics would help for sure as you might be the only poster here with this one.

        Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

        Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
