Char-Griller E1515 Patio Pro Charcoal Grill Review

Some of us have small houses and little families. Let’s face it, there isn’t always a need for large grillers, especially on the patios. So, for such requirements, what you need is a top-rated charcoal grill in smaller settings.

What is my recommendation? Well, it’s the Char-Griller E1515 Patio Pro Charcoal Grill which shares identical looks with the Char-Griller E2123 Wrangler 635 Square Inch Charcoal Grill/Smoker.

Features and Specifications


Well, the main concern of many buyers is whether or not they will be able to move the grill easily. This one doesn’t just come with rolling wheels but is also extremely lightweight for you to carry anywhere you like.

This four-legged appliance has skinny steel legs which are constant on two sides and have movable wheels on the other two. Therefore, you can enjoy the comfort of moving the grill anywhere inside or outside the house to serve the delicacies hot and smoky.


No, there is not much resemblance in design if you compare it with Weber 10020 Smokey Joe 14-Inch Portable Grill. But it does have a smart style to amaze you.

On the first appearance, there is a lot of possibilities that you won’t instantly get impressed with the worldly looks. But the agenda is to focus on the durability and quality and not the stunning-ness.

It has an old-school barrel-shaped look with the main cooking area made of stainless-steel which sits upon the cart. When you see towards the left, there is a foldable wooden side shelf that you can use to keep sausages, dressings, and other stuff. Technically, it is for storage of ingredients that you plan to use on or for the prepared food.

Cast-iron Grates

I cannot stress enough on the fact that cast-iron grates are good at durability and they spread heat evenly but since these are un-seasoned grates, you will have to struggle immensely in cleaning and maintaining these.

One more thing, it is important to season the grates every time you grill food. Otherwise, it will stick on the grates and ruin your experience completely.

It doesn’t have the grates like Weber Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill that gives you hassle-free grilling experience.

Cooking Surface

So, the cooking surface of this model is 250 square inches. Technically if you ask me, the cooking area is not too large. That is why this model is solely suitable for small households.

This appliance will not accommodate more than 10 burgers at a time. As the size of the delicacies increases, the quantity decreases. If you have a large requirement then ditch this model and look for something else instead.

Side Drawer

While there is a wooden shelf on one side of the appliance, the other side is given a side drawer to add more charcoal to the appliance. This drawer is also used to remove the ash. The handy feature makes it pretty simple to clean the appliance.

Interestingly, there are some people who retain the ash in the grill to build layers of flavour as they practice grilling. It is up to you whether or not you want to get rid of the ash. The company has given you the option.

Stay Cool Handle

After the lid of a grill is closed, the main concern of every user is that the lid will heat up and it becomes difficult to open it. Fortunately, this product is fashioned with a stay cool lid plus it has a handle that makes it even convenient to open the appliance.

Side Air Vents

While most grills are under-performers in smoking the food, this one is quite effortless. If you want an exceptionally tasty smoked meat then this is the model that you await.

There are side air-vents that controls the amount of air to enter and exit the grill. The sealed grill will extinguish the fire to create a smoky inside. It ends up in leveraging tasteful punch to the food inside the griller.

The Good

Side Shelf

Well, there are many models that I have reviewed but the ones with storage space hold a special place in my heart. With these, you don’t have to make additional arrangements to keep your grilling stuff around.

Smoky Food

From all the models that I have seen, this one has the tendency to produce the best smoky meat and food.


The small size and light weight of this product make it portable. You can put it in your car’s trunk and take it with you anywhere.


The Bad

Un-seasoned Grates

Well, there is no denying the fact that cast-iron grates are pretty durable. But because they are unseasoned and food sticks to it a lot, it becomes difficult to clean and maintain them.


Without a doubt, this product has a really small capacity and might not be useful to a family with more than 3 members.

Who Is It For?

This product is suitable for smaller families and the ones who want to buy an affordable product and don’t mind going through a little hassle for maintenance.


Well, the Char-Griller E1515 Patio Pro Charcoal Grill can be your next best friend as it ranks among the top-rated charcoal grills and is super convenient and efficient in usage.
