    Recommendations on a good gas grill.

    I'm embarrassed to admit I have been a part of this throw away society when it comes to gas grills.
    About every 3yrs I head to the local Big Box store and purchase an other $150 and change cheap grill. Tired of going around this mountain.
    Considering the importance of the grill in emergency situations and the hard earned green spent over the years. Was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on a decent gas grill?
    Hopefully less the cost of a good AR.
    Thanks!

    Thats tough. Being honest here, I have had the cheapies like you speak of, on up to a heavy duty $500 deluxe model made by Holland grills in N.C. . At the end of about 3 to 4 years, its time to replace parts and clean the thing like its new. After all of that, I still had the flare ups. Just like I never cleaned it. Pissed me off royally. I went back to charcoal, with a weber. Couldn't be happier.
    But if you still gotta have a gas grill....heres a good company. http://www.hollandgrill.com/index.cfm?

    I have an 8 year old Weber Genesis that still works great.

    I hope that I have better luck than you artz, I just bought a Holland. It has a 5 year warranty on most parts and a lifetime warranty on the burner and cooking grate. I cooked a couple of Cornish Game Hens and a Pork Tenderloin this past weekend and you do not have to worry about burning it up, I had no flare ups.

    If you are wanting a grill for possible emergency situations, I would have to go with a good charcoal grill. In an emergency, propane could become very difficult to obtain. With a charcoal grill, you can can cook with just about anything that will burn.

    I like to think I have a bit of knowledge in this area (cooking right now) I would have to agree with everyone here that has suggested a Weber. There are plenty of other grills on the market that you could go with and I am sure be happy with but... the WEBER product and service stand out above the rest.

    I have a few grills as right now that i have been happy with. Performer for a charcoal it will run you around $300 at a box store and the Genesis 310 $600-700 at a big box store.

    I use charcoal for most weekend cooks and gas for weekday (faster in some cases). I also have a few WSM's for smoking ribs, brisket and what not.

    Trust me you can't go wrong with the weber. I do suggest staying away from the Spirit and going with at least the Genesis.

    Good luck

    I'll also recommend a Weber.

    After going through a couple of cheap grills, I picked up a Weber a couple years ago and have been pleased as punch.

    Definately charcoal over gas for me anyday.
    Nothing beats the flavor of charcoal, with or without wood chips added.
    Once grilling season starts salads and spaghetti are about the only things that aren't cooked outdoors.
    Ah that taste, Mmmm

    My "professional" opinion--- spend $150--$200, enjoy it for several years. Higher end grills are nice, but they too will need attention. One suggestion, avoid salts and seasoning on the grill, me thinks they "eat away" the cooking racks and burners.

    I have a Vermont Castings myself. I used to work a Home Depot and would steer people to by the Vermont Castings over Webers. I don't know how the quality is now but my grill is awesome.
