Yeah, you have to report to us on how that works for you, Gabi. I have not seen or used one like that.

Hadn't heard of them, but from the photos on the web page they look like a quality grill. They use the high pressure canisters.

From Solaire site:

Please note: The hood must be open at all times when the burner is lighted. Solaire Infrared grills with direct heat, not heating the air around the food like conventional grills. The hood is for protecting the burner when not in use.

So much for cooking a half chicken on low ( or even chicken parts ).

Learn something everyday, here's one of the smokeless propane grills that I can understand. I imagine you have 2 things to clean after using it, such a deal for $225.

Element Smokeless BBQ brings the joys of grilling inside

The element smokeless BBQ doesn't seem like much more than a grill sitting on top of a frypan.

One of the more popular grills on this forum, the Weber Q1000 has around 8500 BTU for comparison, and doesn't get as hot.
I am familiar with Weber .has anyone had experience with Char-broil Grill to go X200 ?

I've got the Weber Q1000. I use it year 'round at home and we always take it camping. They're around $200.00 Canadian dollars. I can't see the point in 'upgrading'. It lights first time every time and has now for 7 years!

I agree J Mac, nothing wrong with the Weber. I was just replying to post #121 about searing.

Yes , will report back on the " thingee "...... the plan is to try it on the little butane cooker , it does not actually sit on a pan but directly over a flame or element .... sort of like a mini grill....
