It does not come with a propane tank. You are going to have to buy one separately. Walmart sells them, then you can enroll in the exchange program. The exchange program lets change your empty tank for a full one for a fee. Approximately $20 depending where you exchange it. Hope this helps you.

The back is not enclosed. Yes, change the tank from the front. Yes, there is a bit of room for storage of items like seasonings or tools. We use an over-the-door hanger purchased at Kohl's for a bbq mitt holder. Fits great!

The only way to change the tank is from the front. There is a cross member at the back of the cabinet that prevents removal from that direction. There is room for a few additional items in the cabinet besides the tank. I keep a brush and some cleaning supplies in there.

There are a lot of parts to assemble. I doubt Walmart would assemble for you. If you have a long-handled philiips screwdriver, it helps. I carefully followed each step on the instructions (and really took my time), and it took around 2 hours. If you've done grills before, you can do it a lot faster. You do need another person on one step, placing the hood assembly on the base. Otherwise you can assemble youself fairly easily. Make sure you have a large area for assembly - the grill comes packed tightly in the box, and you'll have a lot of parts to spread around until you need them. The box is also heavy, around 118 lbs, so some help picking up the grill at the store and for unloading is recommended.

This does have porcelain coated grates, which will take lots of heat and perform well with tons of control.

answer 2
Many companies now are coating their grates with porcelain for two reasons. One, to better protect them from the elements; and two, to prevent food from sticking, which in turn makes cleanup easier. For thousands of years people have been cooking with porcelain, and for good reason too. It disperses heat evenly and holds onto the heat longer as well, which in turn means quicker cooking times with less gas. The only draw back of porcelain is that you have to make sure you clean it with the proper cleaning tools, where if you just take your metal spatula to scrap the grill or a regular scraper instead of a brush meant for porcelain then you could damage the grate and also have a harder time with food sticking.

No, not at all. It's just a really cheap grill made with sub-standard parts. My porcelain chipped off the first month using the scraper THEY included!

You cant close the lid on high or the thing will just burn itself up.

Question

Plate under grill cooking grid

I saw this product at the store and it has a plate under the cooking grid to keep the flames from coming up and searing or unevenly cooking the items on the grill. I think this is a great feature, but i am curious if that plate is removable. There are times when i may want to sear or cook the items with an open flame directly.

The flame tamers are there to keep grease from falling directly onto the burners. This TRU-Infrared grill is able to reach high temperatures quickly and you should be able to easily sear your food without removing the flame tamers. Please make sure that your food is at room temperature when placed on the grill.
