Description

This traveling grill will cook your food to perfection using Char-broil's TRU Infrared technology. Its high-impact frame with legs and carry handles makes it easy to take with you. Perfect for tailgating, camping or road trips! You can grill on the go, and ignite your taste buds anywhere you are hungry, with the Char-Broil Grill2Go X200! This roadworthy powerhouse doesn't mind getting tossed around; its rugged construction and latching lid are built to survive the adventure; whether that means canyon camping or competitive tailgating. Built-in, push-button ignition requires no batteries to ignite a 9,500 BTU burner powered by a small and easily portable 16.4 oz. disposable LP cylinder, while the no flare-up TRU-Infrared cooking system cooks even in the coldest climates The Char-Broil Grill2Go x200 is a simple and lightweight tabletop grill that enables you to cook your favorite foods while fishing, tailgating, camping, or relaxing at the beach - with the high quality that only Char-Broil TRU Infrared can deliver in a portable grill. The perfectly portable grill weighs less than 20 pounds, but don’t let the size fool you: with 200 square inches of cooking surface, you can grill burgers or hotdogs for more than a carload full of friends! With convenient push-button ignition, this travel grill quickly heats up to grill burgers, chicken, vegetables, and more! The Grill2Go x200 even features a die-cast firebox and aluminum lid built to survive the adventure away from home. The lid is hinged to the rest of the grill to keep things simple when you have limited space but want to cook, the large handle allows you to open and close the lid safely and easily. When it's time to go, packing up is hassle-free with the securely latching top and dual Cool-Touch heat-resistant handles. Quality rust-resistant and durable steel construction with a black porcelain finish helps to extend the life of your grill – plus, the stainless steel cooking grate is a snap to clean. All Char-Broil TRU-Infrared grills generate a minimum of 65 percent infrared heat, which is evenly spread across the entire cooking surface to cook food -- without drying -- at temperatures that range from simmer to sear. Unlike traditional gas grills that use convective heat (hot air) to cook food, Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared grills limit the hot air flow and use natural, radiant heat to cook food directly without drying. While convective heat destroys food's moisture barrier, infrared heat penetrates it without drying and locks in natural juices and flavors. Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared cooking system virtually eliminates flare-ups while producing very even heat (no hot or cold spots).

abunda_amazon_reviews You have to add the valve or you will destroy anything you put on this grill. I could not get the temp below 450* even at the lowest setting. I even called Char Broil and they admit this is a problem and suggested I only cook hamburgers on this grill. Ridiculous. Not an acceptable answer. I did a bunch of reading as I was considering another grill altogether. The I read the review from Ritchie Bauer. I bought the control valve and then had to get 2 brass adapters at a Napa Car parts store. Altogether less than $20.00. I can now easily turn the grill heat down for steaks and Chicken. You will need to use some thread sealer and do the soapy water test for leaks. Very very simple stuff. The new valve is available here on Amazon and it came quick!! It is intended for use in propane grills so you don't have to worry about this being some questionable fix. Sadly, a lot of the other smaller grills have the same issue with being to hot.

Gill;;;Bottom line is I am pretty darn happy with this grill ans would recommend to anyone who doesn’t mind a little upkeep. For more details, read on. The Good: This grill sears like nobody’s business, which is what I want in a grill. I have a full sized, 4 burner Tru-Infrared grill from Charboil as well. Living in a multi-floor home, it got cumbersome to lug all of my cooking utinsels, sauces, and food to grill downstairs to the big grill, especially for cooking for 2 people. But, when I did, I can’t ever remember a time where I didn’t wait for the big boy to heat up to at least 500 to grill. I don’t do low and slow on a grill. If I wanted that, I’d use my smoker or the oven. When I grill, I want those nice sear marks, a little char, etc on it. Otherwise I’d just bake my food. Now, I did read the reviews and saw this was a grill on steroids when it came to heat. I bought a Mr. Heater aftermarket regulator and did some tests. With the OEM regulator, the grill got to 600 in about 7 mins even on low. That’s a bit much. With the aftermarket regulator, it took a substantial while longer, reaching about 500 degrees on low. That was much better. When I add food to the grill and cook on low, Ive noticed it stayed around 400-425, which would be fine for chicken and pork chops. On high with the aftermarket regulator, got to 600 in less than 9 mins. The picture I attached is a decent sized skirt steak I used for Asada tacos. You can see that the grill did a superb job on getting the char ans flavor on the outside, but what you can’t see is that it maintained a gorgeous medium rare on the inside. This isn’t a 2 inch steak. It’s a relatively thin piece of meat. That’s awesome! The Bad: I’m not crazy about the so-called stainless grate. If it is stainless, it’s probably the lowest grade there is. I seasoned it as instructed, but after the first cook, I had left a little meat juice/residue on the grate by accident. By the next day, it showed signs of a little rust. Nothing major, just cleaned it off and reseasoned. The key to this grate is ensuring the wet residue is burned off, so I keep the heat on high for a few mins after I finish cooking, and to maintain it almost like a cast iron skillet. Add a little canola or coconut oil on it after you’ve burned off the residue, let it smoke up, and then you’re done. The other comments on the grease holes in the grate clogging up are true too. I now have a better grill brush that I use on it after cooking, but about 3-4 cooks in, I find I have to take the grate out and give it a wash. Again, not terrible, but not the lowest maintenance compared to porcelain coated cast iron grates. Summary: kinda sucks that I had to get an aftermarket regulator and get a maintenance routine for this grill. But for its performance, I’m ok with that. It’s a great little grill for my balcony, heats up way faster than my full sized grill, and gets an unbelievably good sear on my meats. I would buy it again. UPDATE: Made some chicken wings and chicken breasts on it finally. With the aftermarket regulator, was able to keep the temp around 350-400 and made some delicious chicken. So, this has the horsepower to mad-sear steaks, and the finesse to do chicken breasts right. Ps. I placed a few hickory wood chips on the grill to get a nice Smokey flavor to the chicken. YUM!;;Reviewed in the United States on August 1, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;The Good and The Bad...;;J. M.;;;I have had exactly 4 portable grills, my first one being a little cheap tin one that lasted about two uses. Then I got a heavy duty model that I loved but weighed about 20lbs. The third one was a webber charcoal grill and to be honest it was just a mess to transport. This one is my first infrared grill ever, and after only three uses I like all but one thing about it. First off, they finally did portable the right way. The lid had double latches that hold very well, the igniter is behind the leg so it doesn't get snapped off (see pic). The valve, bottle, and tray all tuck nicely inside the grill, making it the best portable grill I have ever used. Like I mentioned this is my first infared grill and the only gripe I have is the grate requires a little extra work to clean and requires the use of a special tool (included). In the big picture it's not that big of deal, but cleanup and storage is important so I thought it worth mention.. Just for a bonus, I want to point out a couple steps that may make your grilling experience a little better. When you first fire up this grill you have to run it at full heat for 15min to "prep" it for food use. In other words, you have to burn all the stink off of it, it will smell like burning plastic for the first ten minutes. If you want a really good grill with no plastic taste, try this. After your 15 min cook off, let the grill cool (not all the way but under 200 degrees). While it is cooling take a handful of smoking chips (found in your local BBQ section of the store), I use mesquite, because I like the taste. Soak the chips in water (or beer/wine) for about ten min (while the grill is cooling). Now spray the grill grate down with a thin coat of olive oil, take your soaked wood chips and place them in the middle of the grill. Turn the grill back on med-high heat and let cook (burn) until the majority of the smoke stops. This process with season your grill and keep your food from tasting plastic-like the first couple times you use it. See pics. I plan on keeping this grill for a very long time, and based on how robust it feels, I suspect I will be able to.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 24, 2015;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Someone finally got a few things right.;;Pathfinder Outdoors

Living in a multi-floor home, it got cumbersome to lug all of my cooking utinsels, sauces, and food to grill downstairs to the big grill, especially for cooking for 2 people. But, when I did, I can’t ever remember a time where I didn’t wait for the big boy to heat up to at least 500 to grill. I don’t do low and slow on a grill. If I wanted that, I’d use my smoker or the oven. When I grill, I want those nice sear marks, a little char, etc on it. Otherwise I’d just bake my food. Now, I did read the reviews and saw this was a grill on steroids when it came to heat. I bought a Mr. Heater aftermarket regulator and did some tests. With the OEM regulator, the grill got to 600 in about 7 mins even on low. That’s a bit much. With the aftermarket regulator, it took a substantial while longer, reaching about 500 degrees on low. That was much better. When I add food to the grill and cook on low, Ive noticed it stayed around 400-425, which would be fine for chicken and pork chops. On high with the aftermarket regulator, got to 600 in less than 9 mins. The picture I attached is a decent sized skirt steak I used for Asada tacos. You can see that the grill did a superb job on getting the char ans flavor on the outside, but what you can’t see is that it maintained a gorgeous medium rare on the inside. This isn’t a 2 inch steak. It’s a relatively thin piece of meat. That’s awesome! The Bad: I’m not crazy about the so-called stainless grate. If it is stainless, it’s probably the lowest grade there is. I seasoned it as instructed, but after the first cook, I had left a little meat juice/residue on the grate by accident. By the next day, it showed signs of a little rust. Nothing major, just cleaned it off and reseasoned. The key to this grate is ensuring the wet residue is burned off, so I keep the heat on high for a few mins after I finish cooking, and to maintain it almost like a cast iron skillet. Add a little canola or coconut oil on it after you’ve burned off the residue, let it smoke up, and then you’re done. The other comments on the grease holes in the grate clogging up are true too. I now have a better grill brush that I use on it after cooking, but about 3-4 cooks in, I find I have to take the grate out and give it a wash. Again, not terrible, but not the lowest maintenance compared to porcelain coated cast iron grates. Summary: kinda sucks that I had to get an aftermarket regulator and get a maintenance routine for this grill. But for its performance, I’m ok with that. It’s a great little grill for my balcony, heats up way faster than my full sized grill, and gets an unbelievably good sear on my meats. I would buy it again. UPDATE: Made some chicken wings and chicken breasts on it finally. With the aftermarket regulator, was able to keep the temp around 350-400 and made some delicious chicken. So, this has the horsepower to mad-sear steaks, and the finesse to do chicken breasts right. Ps. I placed a few hickory wood chips on the grill to get a nice Smokey flavor to the chicken. YUM!

Someone finally got a few things right.
I have had exactly 4 portable grills, my first one being a little cheap tin one that lasted about two uses. Then I got a heavy duty model that I loved but weighed about 20lbs. The third one was a webber charcoal grill and to be honest it was just a mess to transport. This one is my first infrared grill ever, and after only three uses I like all but one thing about it. First off, they finally did portable the right way. The lid had double latches that hold very well, the igniter is behind the leg so it doesn't get snapped off (see pic). The valve, bottle, and tray all tuck nicely inside the grill, making it the best portable grill I have ever used. Like I mentioned this is my first infared grill and the only gripe I have is the grate requires a little extra work to clean and requires the use of a special tool (included). In the big picture it's not that big of deal, but cleanup and storage is important so I thought it worth mention.. Just for a bonus, I want to point out a couple steps that may make your grilling experience a little better. When you first fire up this grill you have to run it at full heat for 15min to "prep" it for food use. In other words, you have to burn all the stink off of it, it will smell like burning plastic for the first ten minutes. If you want a really good grill with no plastic taste, try this. After your 15 min cook off, let the grill cool (not all the way but under 200 degrees). While it is cooling take a handful of smoking chips (found in your local BBQ section of the store), I use mesquite, because I like the taste. Soak the chips in water (or beer/wine) for about ten min (while the grill is cooling). Now spray the grill grate down with a thin coat of olive oil, take your soaked wood chips and place them in the middle of the grill. Turn the grill back on med-high heat and let cook (burn) until the majority of the smoke stops. This process with season your grill and keep your food from tasting plastic-like the first couple times you use it. See pics. I plan on keeping this grill for a very long time, and based on how robust it feels, I suspect I will be able to.
