The Fuego F24C is one of the funkiest grills we’ve set eyes upon, and one that definitely lives up to its Pro billing. It’s reminiscent of those classic standing park grills, but with a clean design which keeps everything out of site.
Despite the design of the Fuego F24C, it can handle a lot of meat. A 415 square inch grilling surface can hold around 20 quarter pound hamburger patties, and there’s another 110 square inches up top as well. While that may not sound impressive, it is once you factor in the grill’s overall dimensions. When closed it leaves a 24” x 24” footprint behind which makes it ideal for smaller spaces.
People with small patios or decks will appreciate this grill, and it’s effortless to move around. It weighs 90 pounds but has sturdy industrial style caster wheels. They're of the non-marking variety as well, so floors and decks are safe. The design also provides another perk as the Fuego is easier to put together than other propane grills.
Just how easy is it?
The company says you’ll only need a Philips head screwdriver and around 30 minutes to put this one together. There are 20 screws and clear instructions which means you shouldn’t need help with installation and won’t have to call up a pro. That’s a bonus, and so is the ability to keep those dirty old propane tanks out of site.
The doors are sturdy and stay shut once you flip the clasp, but as it doesn’t have an “open design” you won’t get any extra storage. There is a metal handle of sorts you could hang hooked accessories on, but no traditional utensil hangers and no table for your meat. You can pick up a clip-on table as an extra although we would have liked to see something included for free given the price.
The Fuego F24C Pro can hit 500-degrees in only 5-minutes and has a dual burner system with an electronic ignition. Those burners are rated for 26,500 BTU per hour which is par for the course in this class. The grease removal system is a bit different however as they’ve cut 100 square inches from the fire bowl to streamline the cleanup process. You can get a brief overview of all the key features and see it in action below…
The warranty on this grill is not nearly as long as we’d like as you’ll get 1-year overall and 3-years on the stainless steel burners. That’s a bit of a downer although their customer support is top-notch by all accounts. It comes with an installation guide but little else, so you will need to pick up a cover for the F24C. There are plenty of other official accessories you can add on as well including a flat griddle top and a conversion kit if you prefer natural gas.
