    Grill2go is very easy to clean, just pickup the grill grate top and clean. Takes no time at all. You can put it in the sink to clean if you wish. It runs so hot you can really let it clean itself, that's what I normally do. You do need to keep it clean and not let the "little holes" get clogged up. A good grill brush will take care of that. I always applied a thin coat of oil after cleaning and letting it cool. Used for over 5 years with NO problem at all. Great little grill. A real searing machine.

    Been busy and just got back here.

    Thanks for your input on this.

    Love to, how's the clean up on this one?

    The brass "needle valve" finally arrived, haha two weeks after I returned the grill itself.

    The point of the valve is more finely tuned gas flow and ability to regulate the temp to much lower.

    I'm thinking of using it mainly for searing. Meanwhile I've started looking at small ceramic burner infrared grills but they are rather pricey, Solaire makes a couple of small ones. I found an open box for $389 but I'm going to start checking craigslist.

    Glad to hear positives on the charbroil and still in the running, best price new I had seen was ~$189, so thanks for the tip on that.

    Had one for years in my camper. Hooked to a larger tank to grill. Used many times and loved it. I agree, it does get hot, real hot! Very little control over the output with the regulator knob. I learned to prop open the lid a little to get the temps down some in order to not "burn up" some things like chicken, etc.. Not ideal but with practice it did work. If you want HOT, this little grill is for you. Lowes carries this grill and I have seen it on sale in the $135 range. It is a solid product and you must keep it clean but that is easy to do. I do recommend it.

    A new regulator would cost ~$25+ shipping. I paid $116, that would bring the cost up to $141. new ones are in the range of $175. Still thinking about it but this one is not new though apparently unused, and another metal part was a bit bent.

    There are some others for sale on craigslist locally. A couple are electric Char Broil infrared, not sure if those are as good as the gas ones ?

    I already have a couple of 5# propane tanks, so the gas one is easy enough for me. Plus I don't see how one could take the electric one camping.

    Glamping maybe.

    Bummer. I guess “like new” is a relative term.

    Update, used liked new grill arrived, regulator knob broken ie. does not work properly.

    Returning per amazon.

    Maybe I'll buy a new one, I already bought a 4' hose and needle valve to use with it.

    Hey I just order a "used like new in original packaging" Char-Broil Grill2Go X200 from amazon for $116. Ordered a hose/fitting for another $16.

    Looking forward to this, will get the grill in a week or so, probably be a couple of weeks to get a chance to use it .

    That is great !

    I first learned about these from a friend who moved into a new house that had one built in. I had never seen them before and wow it cooked up some carne asada flank or skirt or whatever it was in just a few minutes !

    So yeah I want to use it to sear the meat I cook on my smoker grill.

    But if I can figure out how to do other stuff on it so much the better !

    Thanks for your post !

    Oh and I bought a cart for it and have the adaptor with 20lb tank on it. I really love it. I got it because it’s just my wife and I and got tired heating up the Weber Genesis for the small amount of food for just us.

Got it for $95 at Menards about four years ago. It is a searing machine! It really has one temp. BLAZIN hot. I never temped it at the grate but the gauge gets pinned in about 10 min. The regulator adjustment does very little. Think Blazin to Really Blazin as the range. That said, with a little practice, I learned to cook items nicely from start to finish on it. In fact I did some really tasty chicken thighs on it last week. One thing as noted above. Keep the grates well cleaned to keep the little holes clear otherwise you snuff out air flow and temps drop drastically.

    I’ve been scratching my head about getting something to sear meats cooked on my Traeger pellet smoker grill.

    Criteria:

    1. Doesn’t take up too much space.
    2. Quick and easy to set up and use and clean up.
    3. Gets high temps for searing.

    I see these in the range of $125 used and wondering if it might fit the bill.

    What kind of temps can be gotten at grill level with one of these units?

    ???
