Charbroil And Infrared Gas Grills
Charbroil have been selling low priced barbeque grills since the 50′s. The WC Bradley company is Charbroil and is many other things also.C. Bradley Co. with may retail and business enterprises. Progressing upwards from the open fire outside a cave the first barbecues used charcoal in a cast tank. Gas grills were added in the 1960s. Although manufactured elsewhere the Char-Broil barbecues are still very popular and charbroil bbq grill parts both easily available and sought after. Even though the charcoal grills are still quite popular, they had their peak of sales as late as 1988. They were loosing ground to the more convenient gas grills especially after portable propane gas tanks were introduced. While charcoal barbecues are still very popular, by 1995 gas grills were steadily out selling and performing charcoal bbqs.
The Charbroil – like most other barbecues – has gas grill burner tuber, range top side burners on a cart with a consistently evolving ignition. 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.
Range top burners are not generally available without upgrading to the commercial models with two or more bbq burners. 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. Non commercial barbecues have much smaller cooking surface – close to half the cooking surface of the commercial models. The commercial models have different features throughout the entire product, including the castings, features, lid and, to a limited degree, durability. Check the dimensions and details for a commercial and a domestic charbroil barbeque. Quantum Infrared Four-Burner Auto-Clean Grill is a commercial model with specs as follows:

The newest generation of barbecue grills are the Infrared grills. IR were invented and introduced in the 1980′s by a company named TEC, which held the patent for their invention. Sear zones grill food directly and do not “barbecue” at lower temperatures. High temperature radiant grilling locks flavor inside the grilled meats for incredible flavor. The entire activity became quicker.
Charbroil grills have different practical uses for the infrared 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. Newer Charbroils used new heat shield designs to magnify heat from below a single, low-BTU barbeque burner. Different Char-broil models use different versions of the TEC gas grillradiant 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. The phrases barbeque, barbeque and grill all connote slightly different styles of cooking. Some gas grill companies are still producing products domestically. Popular bbq grills include Great Outdoors, Ducane, Perfect Flame, Jenn Air, BBQ Grillware and more. 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. Charbroil models became part of the cutting edge of new technological grilling while keeping low-priced customer base. 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.
