    Replacement for Charbroil 940X

    My father in-law loves his old Charbroil 940x but it is time to replace it. Unfortunately, this grill is no longer being made. Can someone recommend a replacement grill that works like the 940X?

    Thank you.

    I can't help, but welcome to The Pit.


      What does he like and not like about the 940x? Do you have a budget?

      if your budget is very small and you want an adjustable grate, there’s the Judge.


      But it will require some mods and effort.


      if you have room to step up in budget, the Hasty Bake is very popular and high quality with that adjustable grate too.


      Lots of info about the Hasty Bakes here:



        Suggest replacing it with a Traeger, Timberline 850.
        It is a pellet grill. Not the same, but they are fantastic.

          Mgmcotton I second IFindZeroBadCooks in suggesting the Oklahoma Joe Judge, if you can find one. The design appears to be similar to the grill your dad liked.

          Here is the review of it:


          It appears to me that the height of the charcoal tray is adjusted using two handles inside the grill, versus an outside lever, so you will want some good gloves to grab it and raise or lower it while in use.

            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.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            3 burner gas grill

            The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.
