Charbroil BBQ Grills and Replacement Grill Parts.
Charbroil commercial series barbeque.
It was the end of the 1950s, when Charbroil introduced their first grill and they have been helping people who enjoy their barbecue ever since. Charbroil was part of the W.C. Bradley Co. - a company involved in various commercial activities. The first grill was a cast iron barbecue charcoal grill. Gas grills were added in the 1960s. Nowadays Charbroil bbq grill parts are still going strong and doing what they were always doing for more than half a century, with the difference that they are offering their customers even more diversity, more power and more options. Even though the charcoal grills are still quite popular, they had their peak of sales as late as 1988. They were losing ground to the more convenient gas grills especially after portable propane gas tanks were introduced. In 1995 gas grills overtook the old-fashioned charcoal grills, announcing the end of the era of the charcoal grills.

The main parts of the Char-Broil gas grill are as follows: main burner(s), side burner, durable steel (porcelain-enameled) lid and firebox, porcelain (also enameled) grate grilling area, ignition (electronic and piezo), temperature gauge, front panel and wheels. Commercial grills are still aimed to sell at the residential backyard user as opposed to restaurants or commercial establishments; the name of the model series just invites the implication that the product is made better, more durable than other products. The difference between Charbroil commercial and other model grills is primarily features.

Commercial Char-Broil barbeque parts consist of the following: The commercial models have usually more than two burners plus a side-burner; side burners are usually not available in the non-Commercial barbecues. The BTU (British thermal unit) of the commercial grill burners is almost twice as high as the home models determining a higher barbecuing heat emitted by the burner. The cooking area on commercial models is near double the size as well. There are differences in the make and durability of the lids, fireboxes and other parts in favor of the commercial units. To illustrate the above said, here are the specs of two Charbroil grills, a commercial and a domestic one. Quantum Infrared Four-Burner Auto-Clean Grill is a commercial model with specs as follows:

Char-broil infrared gas grill
The newest generation of barbecue grills are the Infrared grills. IR were invented and introduced in the 1980s by a company named TEC, which held the patent for their invention. The infrared grills are based on the principle of heating through radiation (radiant heating). Unlike barbecuing through conduction or convection there is not a loss of flavor with high radiant heating. This makes the whole process faster and also energy effective.
Charbroil grills have different practical uses for the infrared grill technology. Like the original TEC burner used with some Char-broil models there is a separate sear zone above a pressurized gas burner that reached temperatures over 1000 degrees in just a few minutes without closing the lid to capture heat. Also like the newer TEC grills, the Char-broil red uses a single pipe burner below a parabolic emitter that multiplies radiant heat within a closed firebox. Different Char-broil models use different versions of the TEC radiant technology.
Charbroil model grills with TEC licensed infrared burners are:
- Char-Broil Quantum Infrared Gas Grills
- Char-Broil RED Infrared Gas Grills
- Char-Broil Heatwave Infrared Grills

A decade ago a grill was a product that cooked very hot at the cooking surface, a barbeque was a cooker that cooked with low, slow wood/charcoal fuel and the middle ground of gas cookers that cook in the 350 – 500 degree range were called gas broilers or char-broilers. Today in the discourse of superficial knowledge we refer to all outdoor cookers using barbeque, barbecue and grill interchangeably as though synonyms. Many other companies nowadays manufacture barbecue grills in the USA with specialized features and heat settings. Some of the leading brands in the industry are Nexgrill, Thermos (acquired by Charbroil), Weber, DCS, Fire Magic, Lynx, Member's Mark and many others. In fact, they all are still producing the whole variety of barbecue/grill/charbroil grills. Charbroil remains competitive in the marketplace with its new infrared models making the best technology on the planet available at lower prices than any competitors. Dealing with TEC to get this technology available was a brilliant and profitable move for Char-broil. Charbroil has offers newly available features and mid-quality products, replacement parts, services, sauces and rubs (my favorite right now is the Char-broil Kansas City rub) at low to mid-pricing making it attractive across many stratifications.
