Weber’s model is bigger in cooking area but more PORTABLE, some may argue but having cooking area 240 sq. inch and being bigger in size is a minus for Char-Broil model. But this model have an advantage to be called as standing grill which is great for outdoor use with Weber you need something to put it on. Judging by Sales Rank (lower is better )and taking a look to Porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grate, the winning point goes to legendary Weber Q2400. 2:1

Comparison 4 – Natural Gas Grills

Since Char-broil do not offer  Natural Gas Grills … it’s 3:1

Final words: Char-broil, certainly is a great brand and it provides an amazing quality  for the price offered, but with Weber one’s cooking dream feels differently. Weber have great natural gas grill which Charbroil simply do not have in range.

With excuses to Charbroil fans we at GrillsZone think that in  the comparison Weber VS Charbroil Grills,  the winner is the WEBER.
