This is a very good grill to start with. A few modifications improve it's performance. I've installed a perforated baffle plate to limit all of the heat and smoke from coming out of the fire box in one small concentrated area. I've also extended the flue and added a grease valve drain in the bottom. All work well to help maintain constant temp and good heat distribution. The thermometer must be ignored, the one on my grill is at times off by over 75 degrees.

Don't get me wrong, this WOULD be a very nice smoker, IF the parts list were accurate, and some of the pieces weren't stamped incorrectly, AND the inside of the smoker weren't rusted in places, AND some of the parts weren't bent during shipping (box is HEAVY and of course mistreated by UPS).

For $219 I'm not expecting a masterpiece, but for $219 I DO expect all the pieces and parts to be included, the holes in said parts in the correct places, and the item as a whole not rusted.

I will be calling customer service as soon as I'm done writing this as I cannot go any further without the bracket I need.

      Not easy to find a cast iron grill that is suitable for the backyard. This one is perfect and the side smoker is very useful. After reading other reviews, I am considering providing an air tight seal with high temp caulk around the lids and where the side smoker connects with the grill. This is not necessary as it performs just fine as it is, I just want to make it perfect!

        Read many bad review so was skeptical about ordering from Hayneedle but their price was good and shipping was free so I took a chance. Ordered on the 9th of December and arrived on the 12th. Great price and response on shipping and delivery.
        Will definitely order from them again.

        They advertised a discount that was good on most items but mine wasn't but again the price was good to start with. Also the box was pretty beat up when delivered but I attribute that to FED Ex. When my son in law opens it Christmas Day we will see if there is any damage. So far I am more than satisfied with Hayneedle!

        I have had this product for some time now and can say I have never been disappointed. It takes a little bit to set up but in the end totally worth it. I have two of them and really like them . I only gave 4 stars only because when smoking the fire box is a little small and after a couple of years the tray stops sliding in and out and adjustable coal tray is wore out in the large cooking area. But to be fair I use the crud out of it year round so its not bad at all really. I am now buying new coal tray and modifying the fire box a little but outside meatel is still good and not even close to weathering out. Oh I have had them for over three years and it is always in the weather and is still a sturdy grill. I still recommend these products to any one.

        This grill arrived with our cover and rotisserie. We were very happy with the whole set up. Although my husband did say that it was a real pain to set up and put together that that may have been just because he did it himself. all good and has everything we want!

        This is a must have for anyone that enjoys grilling and or smoking. For set up, all parts were included and I had no problems with assembly. The versatility of this grill is amazing, you can use indirect heat inside the grill by separating the coal piles, I love the space this grill offers!!! My grilling and smoking skills have greatly improved by owning the Char Griller, BEST gift my wife has ever given me besides our daughter!! My upgrade with be the Char Griller "Outlaw smoker".

          Comments about Char-Griller Smokin Pro 1224 Charcoal Grill and Smoker:

          Well, I looked around for a while at different brand and models and this is what I chose because it's basic set-up and design is very similar to the larger ones I'm used to and that my Dad made and we used when he was still with us....there was a couple things I was worried about before the purchase that would effect it's performance. First, I felt like the stack was going to be too small to get a good draw and pull the right heat and smoke through the main cooking chamber; and second, I thought the firebox needed to be slightly higher to provide a large enough space for the heat and smoke to enter the main cooking chamber.....Turns out I was right...no matter what you do with your damper and vent the firebox holds all the heat and very little actually makes it to the cooking chamber....I had the firebox so hot I couldn't hold the handle but for a minute when I raised the lid to check my coals bit at the same time could lay my hand on the lid of the main cooking area between the handle and the end where the firebox is attached....and this was after three hours of smoking....food tasted good..Country Style Pork Ribs..marinated in my brine recipe over night and pulled out drained and rubbed with my homemade rub but it took at least twice as long to smoke them as it should have...As far as the other stuff, delivery was prompt, some of the parts were a little bent up...the legs wouldn't fit together because both of the leg pieces on the wheel end were bent(one into on oval) so they didn't fit onto the other leg pieces...I wrapped a rag around them to limit powder coat damaged and reshaped them with a hammer...that problem fixed and moved on...there were a few other bends that had to be hammered out the same way to may the lid fit...one side was bent out at the hinge side and so forth. Other than that I was able to put it together by myself even with my disabled back...a 5 gallon bucket is about the perfect height to support the firebox while wiggle it just a bit to get a couple of the screws bolted in(top center and bottom center)then do the spacers on the leg braces and that will support it while you get it bolted up and tightened. Portability is awesome even for me with my back and joint issues..Over all, I'd say a great base starter for someone who knows what they are doing in terms of modifications and fixing it's little heat/smoke distribution issues...Oh...the temp gauge is good for decoration but don't try to actually depend on it luckily I been doing this for 30 years and have never used one because I would have been really in trouble if I actually needed it. Modifications are in the works for me and my smoker...and I hope this info help ya'll out looking into your backyard grilling and smoking options.... I said on here I would recommend this to a friend but if your looking to buy keep in mind that is because my friends either can do their own modifications or I can help them...Unless you can fix it's issues or you plan on mostly direct heat grilling this is not the one for you.

          Comments about Char-Griller Smokin Pro 1224 Charcoal Grill and Smoker:

          I read the other reviews prior to my purchase as I normally do. Upon completing the assembly I was a bit confused by some of the comments.
          "The label is super glued on". The label is riveted unless the reference is to the plastic skin over it that should be removed before the grill is used. That would make it very difficult to remove as it would bake on.
          "There are no instructions on how to assemble the smoke box to the main grill". The instructions are clearly stated on 8 and 9 on the first page of instructions. There is a reference to the 2" spacer tubes being attached using 1 3/4" bolts however. That won't work. Probably meant 2 each. The spacers tubes are 1 1/4" long.
          "The temp gauge is not to be trusted". Yep, that's true. I replaced it with a Cooper 24HP oven thermometer which is extremely accurate and the same diameter. I just cut the hanger stand flange off and inserted it into the same hole and used the tension ring to hold it in place. You'll find them easily on line.
          Plenty of spare parts as stated (what are the 2" bolts supposed to be for?). Didn't take two people to assemble but then I learned to read instructions building plastic models as a kid.
          It's a bit rustic in construction. Obviously a lot of hand building but I like that. Works very good and is pretty heavy duty.
