Char-Broil Big Easy TRU Review

The Char-Broil Big Easy TRU Infrared Smoker, Roaster, and Grill makes everything big and easy. It’s a mean looking, but beautifully designed BBQ beast! The Big Easy is a circular black box with a round top. The two silver temperature control knobs near the bottom make it look like a small robot – “Let me cook your food, master” (now do it again in robot voice…). This is the kind of effect the Big Easy has on you. This BBQ grill uses Infrared technology to roast, grill and smoke. This means there are no flare ups, ever!

Safety stay-cool handles on the Char-Broil are sturdy and well positioned for simple handling when moving. The porcelain coated dome-shaped lid has a handle too. Shutting and opening the hood when cooking different recipes is a breeze. Even better is the temperature display that lets you operate without guesswork. If you are roasting a bird (large chicken or turkey with side potatoes), grilling vegetables, toasting bread or smoking some juicy beef, the Char-Broil Big Easy can do it all. You need a propane tank to run it.

This 3-in-1 grill master is ideal for people with little to no experience in outdoor cookouts. A pro would appreciate its usefulness and convenience even more. It is also good for people living in apartments with a little extra open space on the balcony or roof. Make your parties or Sunday BBQs with friends and family memorable events. Always enjoy a good Thanksgiving turkey. Try out different recipes to spice up your meals.


The Char-Broil Big Easy really stands out from the competition. Here are the reasons why.

Sizable Capacity: The stainless steel roasting and smoking box can hold a 25 pound turkey when roasting or smoking. There is also a roasting basket that allows for twin stacking. This means you can prepare 2 differently flavored chickens at the same time. The grilling top area measure 180 sq. inches. This is especially good when cooking for a large group.

Solid Design and Build: The Big Easy tops in simplicity and a sturdy durable build. It can withstand regular use without dropping in performance. The ragged contoured design with easy curves and a fine finish is also a big plus to the Big Easy. The 4 legs enable the Char-Broil have a firm stand on the ground.

Great Temperature Control: Temperature can be easily adjusted and it ranges between 9k and 18k BTU’s.

Simplified Smoking: The smoker box is easy to pull out and load. You can drop in a few pellets or wood chips if you want to smoke your meat.

Easy Handling: The handles are tightly fixed and stay cool throughout your cooking. This helps you handle everything, including the roasting basket without getting burned. This also reduces accidents that may be caused by sudden jerking movement.
