In 1948, Char-Broil brought one of the first charcoal grills to market. In the years since, we’ve introduced innovations that are now standard among modern grills. And with products like our oil-less turkey fryer and TRU-Infrared™ Cooking System, the evolution continues today. So while we can’t take credit for the cookout, we’ve been making cookouts better for decades.
For decades, we've been innovating to make grilling easier, affordable, and more memorable. As a result, our greatest triumphs can be traced to backyards across America. As we look ahead, our aim is to continue improving outdoor cooking for everyone, everywhere.
In 1948, we gave America one of its first charcoal grills. While outdoor cooking was unheard of at the time, the leisure that came with it quickly turned grilling into a backyard tradition. From that moment forward, Char-Broil® continued to set the standards with even more firsts, including portable grilling, electric grilling and the gas grill with electric ignition.
