Grilling with Char-Broil 463655621 Performance TRU-Infrared 2-Burner Gas Grill

The results are fabulous. Char-Broil 463655621 doesn’t dry out the meat – it remains very juicy inside. Food essentially ends up being delicious. As far a cooking goes – Char-Broil 463655621 Performance TRU-Infrared grill performs just like you want it to!

TRU-Infrared Grates

The porcelain-coated steel grates are probably the biggest drawback of this grill. They work just fine while you are cooking but the issues come afterwards.

They get dirty very fast, food sticks to them and they are quite hard to clean. Sure, grills are generally hard to clean by default, but this one will require even more effort than usual.

Char-broil does include a nylon cleaning brush with this model but it’s useless. You will need to buy a proper wire brush separately and it still likely won’t be an easy job.


Char-Broil 463655621 Performance TRU has folding side shelves, electric ignition system (powered by single AAA battery), removable grease pan and cabinet design which provides storage space for propane tank as well grilling tools/accessories.

Char-Broil 463655621 Performance TRU grill has 4 casters wheels, two of them locking casters, for mobility.


Overall build quality could be better but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. Grill feels reasonably sturdy and well made, all the parts line up perfectly however if you pay attention you can notice some differences when compared to higher end grills like Weber.

In certain places Char-Broil cheaped out to save money. For example metal sheets are comparatively a bit thin to what you would typically expect from higher-end grill, some other parts are made of lesser grade materials too like heads which are made of plastic instead of metal.


Char-Broil 463655621 Performance TRU-Infrared 2-burner grill measures 44.5 inches in width, 22.4 inches in depth and 45.3 inches in height.

It’s fairly compact for its type of grill. It doesn’t take up too much space on deck especially since side shelves are foldable.


Char-Broil 463655621 Performance cooks well but it is a bit hard to clean and build quality could be better as well. With that being said it’s a decent grill of its type and size for the money.
