Default Gas Grills?

OK guys really off topic... but thinking of buying a new Stainless (Like the Look) gas grill for our house to replace our well used Weber...

Wonder what you guys have and like..? Looking in the $500-$800 price range..

Thanks in advance!

My wife gave me one of the Jen-Air grills from Lowes for Christmas. So far it is great and seems to be a decent grill for the $$$$

I went with natural gas for this grill and I love not having to fool with propane and worry abut running out of gas while cooking

weber makes a nice grill along with ducane only problem with natural gas is its doesnt burn clean like propane there are allot of impurities in natural gas that can leave a taste in your food

Check out Sam's Club. I was in the Port Huron Sam's Club a couple of weeks ago and at the rear of the store they had a clearance of all the stainless steel bbq's and the stainless steel outdoor island. Price was less than the $800 you wanted to spend. Great bbq, with all the bells and whistles. I am not certain about the Sam's in Florida.

Why not go back to a Weber? The Platinum series B and C (stainless) are right in your wheelhouse...Approx $700. In that price rage you can't beat a Weber. I've got the Silver A and it's perfect for 2 people and the occasional small gathering. I don't think you can go wrong with that...

When you're ready to double your budget...try a Bull Texan!

Check out the Igloo model at wal-mart.
$377.00 Stainless, cast brass/ bronze burners, large cooking surface, included rotisserie.
Don’t even consider any grill with stainless burner elements. My last grill had cast iron burners and they lasted 5 years. The others with stainless lasted less than a year. I grill at least once a week. The only thing I didn’t like was the heat diverters above the burners and will probably add a layer of ceramic brickets over that.
I looked at all the stores this was truly the most bang for the buck.

About 5 years ago we stepped all the way out to a Napoleon grill.....the BEST move we ever made as far as BBQ's goes and it "still" works and looks like new! What really kills me about this grill is how it cut our cooking time close to half to what we were acustom to. We've had several Webers, IMO they are not even in the same league as Napoleon grills, now where even close.

A friend of mine has a TEC grill and loves it. Not sure how it works, but he swears by the infrared heat it uses. I think it's kinda like that Napoleon that Garrett has. Might be something to look at.

Whatever you buy make sure you can get parts down the road, I looked at the grills at Sams and while the look nice I worried that a few years from now I may have a problem getting parts since Walmart/Sams normally put a lot of vendors into bankruptcy

Amen brother! Only I use Charcoal to get the wood burning in the grill.. Sure it takes longer, but a little patience is paid off perfectly with a flavor that just can't be beat..

That said, I am actually looking to get a cheapo gas grille with high BTU's for hot dogs and burgers where the flavor of wood isn't that big of a deal..

This is the one my wife bought me as anniversary present. http://www.fortunoff.com/product.asp?pf_id=502506 Gotta say, I LOVE IT ! They are built right here in Greeneville by MECO under the Aussie brand but the "Source" is a signature brand for Fortun Off. She paid around $400.00 ( but she don't know I know that ) Highly recommend.

Ducane makes a nice grill....you can definitely spend more, but I don't think you could find one that cooks any better.

best indirect grill out there, everything is stainless, including the two burners. We use ours for basically everything except for when we want something seared, then the only way to go is real fire, on a home made charcoal grill, using only lump coals & hardwood.

I agree. can't go wrong with a Weber. I have one here at home that compliments my smoker and another on my houseboat with the side burner. Never a prob in 5 years so far.

Got to say that I like the Jenn-Air. Got one from Lowe's and I love it. And at 600.00 with a lifetime warranty on everything but the Ignitors and hoses it seemed to me to be a good deal.

I vote for Vermont Castings Signature Series. Good, heavy stainless and cast iron. Not the light weight stuff sold at Home Depot.
