I have the CharBroil Commercial 4 burner grill. I like it but it's not as good as my old Ducane. I would trade down in size for the Ducane!

3 burner Weber. I think $400 to $450 seems right. Had mine 7 years, works great.

If possible, I recommend Nat. Gas version & plumb to the house....

Real grills are charcoal burning grills! No need for propane.

+1. I converted mine to NG and very glad I did. It took me the better part of a day, but well worth the time. Didn't cost more than 40 bux for piping, valves, flex line, and drilling out the jets.

Weber is the way to go- I have had mine for at least 8 years. I have only replaced the flavorizer bars with Stainless - the old ones rusted away. It has been a great grill.

Our current grill is a kenmore and is older than I am, but we have gone through more burners and more grill grids than its worth, have gone through 2 sets so far in the past 6 months.

Another Weber silver owner, 3 burner. It stays outside (covered) all year long, 7 years old and going strong! Only regret would be next grill has a burner on the side for boiling water or heating sauce, chili, etc.

We bought a grill from Lowes (Great Amarican Grill Co.) Cast Brass burner and the rest of it is cast aluminum. Had it for 7 years and love it. Bought it for 350-400 dollars

Forget the gas grill, get a Big Green Egg.

The Big Green Egg is the porsche of smokers, I went with the offset smoker from Bar B Chef.

I got a Kenmore grill that is made by Weber. It has three cast iron burners with the same replaceable stainless bars that go in the bottom of every Weber. Seems to be a little more grill than the namebrand for the same price. I have had it for 6 years and it is still going strong.

A lot more grill for the money when compared.

And another suggestion to buy a Weber...best grill I've ever had! Mine is 3 years old, I don't foresee any issues making it to 10 years. Mine gets hot, 3 burners plus the side one. Be sure to get a good cover to protect your "investment".

How does the Stainless hold up compared to Aluminum? Our current grill is approx 26-28 years old and is a Kenmore Aluminum and if it wasnt for it going through burners and grill grids I dont think it would be getting replaced.

Holds up great. Mine is under a covered area so that might help it. It is really heavy duty and I have been pleased with it. The cast burners will not need replacing. I would say 26 year old Kenmore should speak for it's self.

That looks more like the stove that is going in the kitchen next week, went with Dacor instead of Viking on that one.

Another vote for Weber.

My Father-in-law has had his Genesis for 20+ years. still works like a charm.

I've had mine for 4 and it is well worth the money. I've also had a friend buy an El-Cheapo 3 times in the last 5 years because after the first lighting... the ignition doesn't work anymore. then the grates descinigarte... not to mention how un-even it cooks.

Weber Baby! you won't regret it!

got a message back from Weber within 20 minutes.....


Hello Brian,
...Thank you for your email inquiry. Our charcoal line of grill is made and assembled in Huntley Illinois.
...The Weber Genesis and Summit line-up for 2007 is assembled in the USA, right in Palatine Illinois. Some raw components are made overseas, so we can't claim the "Made in the USA" moniker, but the grill from raw parts is constructed here.
...In order to compete in this global economy and provide our consumers with a value entry, full size gas grill, we outsourced production of the Spirit grill to China.
...Weber continues to be actively involved in all aspects of operation with our international partners. We remain committed to providing a high level of quality, innovation and U.S. based customer service support for all of our Weber grills.
...If you have additional questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us. If replying via email, please leave this message intact as it will help us to respond faster.
...If you prefer, allow me to remind you that we are open 7am to 11pm CST every day effective October 1st. If you would rather call, the number is below.

...Thank you for choosing Weber/Ducane. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve you.

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Sincerely,

Our current grill is a kenmore and is older than I am, but we have gone through more burners and more grill grids than its worth, have gone through 2 sets so far in the past 6 months.

For what it's worth, I have a more recent Kenmore (2 years old). It's a 6 burner with a back burner and side burner. It's holding up very well.

CharBroil Commercial 3 burner. All stainless including the cooking grid. I have used CharBroil for years. They have on other model replaced burners, ignitors etc. after one phone call. Usually threre is no charge. Service is fantastic. Can't say enough nice things.

We got a good deal on a stainless steel propane grill at home Depot. I dont remeber the name of it but Im sure home depot would have stuff like that...and you might be able to get a good deal on it due to the end of the season.
