Weber Genesis in stainless steel. Bullet proof. In 10 years it still looks new.

What do you cook with gas? Charcoal is by far a better option

I recently purchased a new Wilmington Grill for a little less than this. So far I love it although with no direct flame, it has taken me time to get used to cooking.

This. ^^^ Make sure you get one with the sear burner and side burner. My old Genesis' side burner was good to maybe heat beans. The new burners are 10 BTU and much more useful.

This June I bought a new 4-burner Weber. I wasn't happy that the Genesis line is no longer made in the US but there isn't a whole lot of made in US options.

Debated between the 3 and 4 burner and I am so very glad I went with the 4 burner for a little more money - a lot more real estate for large amounts of food, indirect grilling and just room to move food around.

So far I have been happy - time will tell. My old, Made in USA Weber lasted 15 years.

This times a million. Have 2 myself, and family members have 6 or so. Truly a lifetime grill. With the exception of the control valves and tires, it is 100% stainless and brass.

Yes, I agree. The sear burner is nice and the side burner is necessary, especially if you have a charcoal grill like the OP.

The best thing about the Genesis side burner is that it is the perfect size to light a Weber chimney full of charcoal. No more newspaper mess.

Had all the $1500 plus grills, Weber, Vermont Castings, another Weber and then won a 3 burner Weber Spirit - back to basics for me and its been great. Have a smoker and a charcoal grill so this is just for throwing some stuff on the grill during the week.

Wilmington Grill.
I've had mine 8 years no issues. I know people who have owned Wilmington Grills for 15 years and never changed a part. They still are in great shape.
All parts are stainless and not some flimsy sheet metal. The burners are cast stainless.

We bought another Weber. Last one lasted about 18 years.

Went with the four burner to have more room for indirect cooking and bought the rotisserie.

Used to do business with a guy that made Flat rock Grilles. (Wilmington like)

Sold several for him. Wish I had bought one for myself.
Next gas grill will be a Wilmington.

Look at Bonfire grills. All 304 stainless with cast stainless burners similar to the ones used on a Fire Magic

Look at Bull brand. Might be out of your budget but I love mine. Use is almost every other day.

Lives out in my carport.
