Char-Griller 980 Gravity Fed Charcoal Grill is Released

When you think of smart grills you often think of pellet grills, gas grills or even innovative grills like the Spark Grill that uses proprietary charcoal. Char-Griller is changing that with the release of the Char-Griller 980, a gravity fed charcoal grill.

Gravity fed charcoal grills are a relatively new and innovative fuel delivery method to smoking and grilling. The way they work is a hopper is loaded with either charcoal briquettes or lump charcoal, then a fire is lit in the bottom of the hopper. From there, a fan and controller are used to control temperature on the grill. Below is a schematic from Char-Griller.

The innovative Char-Griller 980 comes with quite a few features to make your next grill or smoking session easy and successful.

  • Heavy Duty Steel Construction
  • 980 square inches of cooking area
  • Temperature range of 225 degrees F to 700 degrees F
  • Porcelain-coated cast iron cooking grates
  • Digital LCD Controller with Bluetooth and Wifi

  • Back Slide Damper
  • Included meat probe
  • Fixed side shelf & folding front shelf
  • Hopper capacity of 16 lbs of charcoal briquettes or 10 lbs of lump charcoal
  • Easy Dump™ ash pan for fast clean up

The Char-Griller 980 comes with a 1 year warranty and is available exclusively at Lowe’s.
