While browsing the market for the best grills, you must’ve seen a lot of gas grills. This is where users face trouble selecting between a grill that runs on natural gas or an infrared grill. The Char-Broil TRU Infrared 14101550 looks to mediate this issue for buyers by combining the best aspects of both worlds. And that makes it a top contender for the best infrared grill crown.

Why We Like It – Char-Broil TRU Infrared 14101550

The Char-Broil TRU Infrared 14101550 is one of the better-infrared grills from the Char-Broil commercial infrared gas grill range. This Char-Broil grill sits among the very few grills that can actually cook food evenly without any flare-ups at all.

  • Up to 18000 BTU main burner
  • No flare-ups
  • Reasonable price
  • The grill door and the top half aren’t designed well
  • No side burner

Power & Heating

The main burners of this Char-Broil TRU Infrared grill range from 9000 BTU to pretty much 18000 BTU in the max limit. The burner of this gas grill isn’t as powerful as the one found inside the Napoleon Prestige 500, and at this price, you shouldn’t even expect that.

Size & Versatility

Compared to other gas grills, it is pretty tall and massive. And the main reason for that is, that it also doubles as a smoker/roster. So it’s even more versatile when compared to something like the Magma grill because it gives you even more cooking options out of the box.


Just like their own Char-Broil TRU Infrared Grill 463276016, this TRU Infrared Gas Grill also comes with an incredibly unique construction overall. The inner body is made of stainless steel, so rust isn’t a problem for the most part.

Ease Of Use

This stainless steel grill is most definitely one of the easiest gas grills to use. It is probably one of the only infrared grills at this range that has zero flare-ups, and even new users can regularly use it just fine.


The value aspect of this TRU Infrared Grill truly is incredible because of its dual functionalities. You’re essentially getting both a fantastic smoker/roaster and a phenomenal Char-Broil grill for the low price of just $230. Almost nothing in the market right now can beat that kind of value.

Char-Broil TRU Infrared 14101550 Wrap Up

All in all, the Char-Broil TRU Infrared 14101550 stainless steel grill is one of the better gas grills available in the market currently. And its dual nature makes it really enticing for professional/veteran users.
