As you know I am also interested in the CS Charbroiler to replace my aging Ducane Gasser. It is 24" wide on the grill which suits my needs MOST of the time. However, sometimes when I grill veggies, I have to do several batches. So I am torn between the 24" or the 36". I am leaning toward the 36", but I was wondering if you could use either side indepently (i.e. the 12" on the side with one controller and fire pot OR the 24" side with the other controller and 2 fire pots.
What about the slide out trays, I read somewhere that you add water to these. Is that true and how is clean up. Is it similar to the FEC?? Many questions I know.
