Pans are cheating......try tossing it straight on the grill, and having no grease to deal with. If you place it carefully, 3lbs at once can be done easily.

Your BBQ is too clean. It needs some seasoning

It was brand new in this pic. All that had been done was to burn it off good, and hose it down with canola oil. Finished putting it together last Saturday night, then cooked breakfast on it Sunday morning.

That an infrared rig? Must be - no open flame?

That's just an outdoor oven

Not IR, but all indirect. Big stainless oven is basically what it is, but it has 40,000 BTU of muscle to back it up. You can do anything from low temp BBQ, all the way up to searing steaks.

Wilmington Grill. This one is at the inlaws house on the lake. Between myself and various family members, this is the 6'th one. Oldest is a 1998, and still in service nearly daily. The very early models had cast iron burners, which were soon updated to cast stainless.

Not counting the plastic/rubber knobs and wheels, and the little spark igniter, they are 100% heavy gauge stainless/brass.

I made bacon cheeseburgers on my cheap char broil couple weeks ago. 4 pieces of bacon spread around...the grease added more charcoal flavor.

Absolutely. Use a weber kettle fairly often too for stuff I want to direct flame sear, but never seen another grill that was as user friendly, or foolproof. Design is basically a copy of a Holland grill. Holland's are decent, but have anemic power.

Biggest thing is the construction. 150 lbs of stainless is expensive, but never wears out or deteriorates.

Then that's all that a damn matters!

Side burner makes great bacon on my 330, although I have at times cooked it the way you show.

I'd need some seriously long tongs to get at the back of that cooking hot!

Theyre right down the road from me and they are definitely quality.

What's the proper price for a nice appliance that gets used almost daily? How much more is reasonable to spend on one that will last forever, with next to no maintenance vs regular?

I've cooked a good bit in a Genesis. They are good, but require maintenance, parts to be replaced from time to time, etc. And they cost nearly $1,000. The only thing you do with the Wilmington is use it, and occasionally clean it.

Whatever YOU can comfortably afford and still enjoy using it every time you fire it up!

Amen to that. I've got several guns that cost more, and they sit in the safe 350 days a year or so. ROI factor for the grill is very high comparably.
