In the list of best grills made by most veteran users, you’ll often see that most of them are infrared grills. Because the benefits of an infrared gas grill (hybrid) are simply too hard to ignore. And that is why the Char-Broil TRU Infrared Grill 463276016 definitely is one of the top competitors for the best infrared grill title.

Why We Like It – Char-Broil TRU Infrared Grill 463276016

Char-Broil commercial gas grills are some of the best when it comes to the overall performance. And with absolutely zero flare-ups, this Char-Broil TRU Infrared Grill 463276016 is an absolute beast too. Besides its main burners, it also comes with a similarly powerful side burner.

  • 525 square inches main cooking surface
  • 200 square inches warming rack with porcelain-coated iron cooking grates
  • 13000 BTU side burner
  • Very hard to put together
  • Rust related problems

Power & Heating

Even the side burner of this Char-Broil grill is extremely powerful (13000 BTU). So obviously, the primary cooking burner is even more powerful. The overall heating performance of the main burner easily dwarfs even the Napoleon Prestige 500 grill.

Size & Versatility

Unlike the Magma Grill, this Char-Broil commercial grill is massive in size. Similarly, you get a tremendous amount of cooking area to accommodate multiple hungry families. The main grill provides about 525 square inches of cooking area, and it has a 200 square inches warming rack made with porcelain-coated cast iron grill grates.


It does come with well-made components. However, they are not rust-resistant at all. Even their own Char-Broil TRU Infrared 14101550 smoker grill comes with rust-resistant components. And that is an infrared grill that costs more than five times less.

Ease Of Use

This infrared gas grill is not really something we can recommend for new users. But, for people who’ve had a lot of experience with different kinds of grills, this infrared gas grill would be a fantastic purchase, mainly because it offers so much control to all veterans & seasoned users alike.

When it comes to infrared grills, this Char-Broil commercial infrared cooking grill really is pretty much as good as it gets in the consumer grills market. But, it’s not exactly made for an average home user. So for people with a commercial business, this is a fantastic grill to buy. It can even convert liquid propane to natural gas if you buy the natural gas conversion kit separately.

Char-Broil TRU Infrared Grill 463276016 Wrap Up

If you need an infrared cooking grill for your restaurant or work, the Char-Broil TRU Infrared Grill 463276016 would be perfect for your needs. But for normal tailgating & BBQs, this is a bit of an overkill.
