The Charbroils I have looked at don't look like they have a good vaporizer system. (where the juices fall and vaporize giving that great taste). Remember that if there is eye contact with the flame from where the meat is it will not taste too great. I still have to recommend the Sears model or even a weber. They are both in a different league without too much difference in price. (the weber is more costly but the Sears on sale is like $229 if you can buy with your sears card on the right day or find a good coupon).
