Char-Broil Portable 240 Liquid Propane Gas Grill

Char-Portable Broil’s Gas Grill 240 is ideal for tailgating, beach parties, and camping. It comes with one 9,500-BTU burner and 240 square inches of cooking space, sufficient for approximately 6 to 8 burgers. 

Simultaneously, if you direct your cooking to the grill’s hottest areas, the Char-Broil 240 is more than capable of searing a quality steak.

The painted porcelain body features transport handles and a temperature gauge mounted on the lid for easy monitoring. The 3.5-inch-deep lid is plenty tall for most grilled items that are appropriate for this size grill. 

Piezo ignition and sturdy legs allow the grill to be placed on a table or the ground, making it easy to cook on the go. For maximum portability, a 1-pound propane tank (sold separately) attaches directly to the side of the grill. 

While many grills with powerful burners can reach high maximum temperatures, an actual test of control is how quickly they can return to more optimal cooking temperatures following searing — the 240 is quite impressive in this regard.  

After only five minutes of adjusting the infinite control knob from high to low, temperatures dropped to a more appropriate grilling temperature of 556°F and quickly stabilized at a consistent 545°F. 

The Char-Broil 240 Portable is a straightforward propane grill that appears to be designed for casual grilling at a picnic table or tailgate. Despite its weight advantage concerning the size of its grilling surface, there are a few flaws that undermine this surprisingly powerful grill’s cooking ability.
