If you are referring to this one:

I have it. I have only used it one. I took the legs off and used it on top of the grate on one of my Weber kettles when cooking ribeyes. It made some pretty good grill marks.

This grill is probably OK, but you may be able to get better value and customer support for that amount of money.

As for feedback, I've never tried one myself, but there's a review I found:
http://bbq.about.com/od/gasgrillreviews/gr/aapr012907a.htm

One big thing I noticed: the reviewer also says that the grill has been discontinued. Plus, he also said something about "limited manufacturer support", too. After the three months of "fun" I've been having trying to fix my dad's grill, "limited manufacturer support" sets off alarm bells in my head. What that often means is "no manufacturer support" in many cases.

Plus, the review hit on some weak points - some of the construction materials on this grill seem to be fairly cheap.

For the price, here's the guy's top ten grills in that price range:

I hope this helps... :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Huh? All he's asking about is the cast-iron Tuscan grill option. Not much that can go wrong with it or need support other than it rusting through.

We used one of these at BBQU and I think it would be cool to have for charcoal grilling. Get it hot hot hot and then sear in your grill marks. I typically do steaks on my Summit but would easily find this useful for presentation if I didn't have another option.

I have Steven's cast-iron Tuscan grill and love it but I don't think that is what aidanoc is asking about.
