Well, after several days of catching a whole slew of comments and observations on the Char-griller's hinge assembly, I'm convinced the pin-deal is gonna be OK, although I do like the X-arrangment on Z's. Really appreciate the photos. I missed the Bobby Flay show and regret that - would have liked to see my (almost mine) grill turnin' out the meat.
Thanks guys for all the information. I think the Char-Griller is comin' home this weekend. And brisket's on sale..... and chicken's on sale...... and ribeyes are on sale.... and T-bones, well T-bones are never on sale, but that's OK.
Have a great 4th and keep the flames down and the smoke up.
