The Char-Broil Quantum Infrared Urban Gas Grill with Folding Side Shelves is so named because it features Char-Broil’s patented and award winning Quantum Infrared cooking system. The Quantum Infrared cooking system completely climates flare ups and its design allows for perhaps the greatest grilling versatility seen in years. Each burner has its own temperature gauge located above the control knob and working at grate level for a true reading of the heat about to sear your steak or whatever you may be grilling. The Quantum Infrared design also allows you to add wood chips directly on to the cooking grates for added flavor and no flare up. This 2 burner grill is highly efficient due to the unique patented infrared grates and thus needs just 2 burners get the job done with the smaller cooking area. The Quantum Infrared Urban is ideal for a wide range of cooking temperatures. Perhaps space is an issue for your patio or perhaps you just want high-end infrared cooking performance without the 500+ price tag. This grill features 340 Square Inch of primary cooking area, 125 Square Inch of secondary cooking area, new “Surefire” electronic ignition, and a combination of stainless steel and painted steel appliance style cart construction with folding side shelves. As with all grills, we recommend keeping the firebox clean to help avoid flare up as well as using a grill cover to protect your investment.
