Char-Broil showcased its BBQ range for all sizes of outdoor spaces


America’s leading gas grill brand Char-Broil showcased its flexible range of BBQ grills that suit any outdoor space from large to small. 


All products combine cutting-edge innovation, top performance and clever design.  Stars of the show include the All-Star portable BBQ, available in gas or electric models; a Gas2Coal hybrid BBQ with 4 burners; and a Professional ‘Double Header’ enabling fish, meat or vegetables to be grilled completely separately.  


With Char-Broil, innovation is at the heart of everything. Char-Broil brought one of the first charcoal grills to market in 1948. In the years since, it has been delivering innovation continuously.  Infrared is one of the most well-known of Char-Broil’s unique technologies, because it has helped revolutionise BBQ cooking by giving up to 50% juicier results, and a perfectly even distribution of heat without any flare-ups. The All-Star and Professional ranges feature this innovative TRU-InfraredTM cooking technology.


For those who only have a balcony or small garden but want the performance of a premium grill, the Char-Broil All-Star BBQ is the ultimate versatile and portable solution. Available in either gas or electric models, it can either be placed in its stand - with foldable side shelves for extra workspace - or it can be detached from the stand to place on a table-top. Cast iron grill grates make it durable, rust resistant and easy to clean, and the All-Star delivers the trademark Char-Broil TRU-Infrared cooking performance using indirect infrared heat to evenly cook producing 50% juicier results every time.

As well as delivering a superior cooking performance on the 1,600 cm2 cooking area, the All-Star offers distinctive, premium design and durability. It has a cast-aluminium lid with a lid-mounted temperature gauge and a porcelain enamelled firebox to deliver a perfect, controlled BBQ experience. The grill can be separated from its cart by opening the two lockers on each side; the pocket handles facilitate transport of the grill.


The All-Star also has an innovative GearTrax accessory that turns it from a low-level portable BBQ to full height wheeled cart, making it easy to manoeuvre.


Another innovation at the Show will be the Char-Broil Gas2Coal.  Why choose between gas or charcoal when there is a grill that can do both? And can even do both at the same time, with the two separate charcoal trays.  The new Char-Broil Gas2Coal 440 converts from gas to charcoal in less than 60 seconds and without requiring any tools. Available in black painted steel, the Gas2Coal has 4 stainless steel burners and Surefire ignition so that you’re ready to cook at the touch of a button.
