  • It doesn’t really contain heat well enough for good searing and also has poor airflow, low temperatures, bad performance in using.
  • The coals sit on a solid surface with a few holes. If user starts to flow air up through the coals, the air starts to flow across them.
  • The coal rack hangs too low, even on its highest level.
  • The ash pan is of poor quality. It warps and eventually disintegrates.
  • Charcoal grate is not well-designed and there is poor design all around.
