|thebigdog||I bought a Kenmore grill to replace the one I bought 12 years ago. The old one worked great and the new one does a great job considering that I got it new for $200 ($100 off). We don't have rust problems in Southern California like you do in a lot of other places.|

"Be sure to take a look at the catch pan that your grill comes with. A small catch pan might overflow and catch on fire when you forget to empty it."
Definitely look at this feature. The Weber I have has a sloped pan with a cutout at one end that lets the drippings collect in a aluminium tray for easy cleaning. When you need to clean the pan I just use a painter's scraper tool and lightly scrap off the burnt residue and ashes.
My previous grill was designed by a moron with a perfectly flat drip tray. Perfect for spilling drippings everywhere.

|koolshaggy||I bought my Weber off of Craigslist a year ago for $100 and replaced the grates with parts from Weber. It works better than any new Char Broil or other Home Depot /Lowes $300 grill out there.|

If Webers are too expensive for you (sorry, I just couldn't fork over the $600 for the one I wanted), try Craigs List. Got my natural gas 4 burner grill for $75 and it was only 2 years old. Going strong 4 years later...

Weber Summit S-670 Way to Go
$1805 is a pretty penny for a grill though....

|ibm650||I had a Sears Grill, total junk, lasted a year. My Weber is over 10 years old, good as new. Once, I had to convert to the standard type of gas since my son exchanged the tank for a different tank. The part - from some grill store did not work. I called Weber and they sent the part next day for zero shipping and it works great. Get a Weber, buy it once.|

Webers are expensive... the cheapest Webers was like $350, 2 burner...

|skull1990||Big Green Egg all the way.... Had a Gas Grill since the stone age, but once I became an EggHead I've never gone back to Gas method.... Even compared the two while I still had the Egg and Gas Grill.|

|Bobby01||For me I'd rather have the natural way of grilling food. That is using charcoal! The food tastes better but of course, a little precaution so as not to burn your steak and avoid carcinogens.|

My two cents...I have had a Weber Genesis B gas(three "horizontal" burners) for 12 years. It has held up well and still works "well" to this day with little in the line of replaced parts (stainless flavorizer bars).
It has sufficient cooking area for burgers brats and hotdogs, but if you want to cook something on indirect heat you're rendered about a third of the cooking area which might be ok if cooking for a couple, but that's about it.
My second complaint about it is it's inability to maintain a low temperature for things like ribs or pulled pork. On most occasions I have to manually cool it by opening the lid or even propping it open with something.
Not all that bad, I guess, considering I paid perhaps $350 for it 12 years ago, but they are now so outrageously priced that I would never consider it now given my experience.

|oughtsix||Forget Gas, Electric and charcoal... get a Trager and cook over real wood (pellets)!|
