I threw my gas grill away years ago when I bought a Big Green Egg. Outfitted with a cast iron grill and a plate setter for slow cooking, you can't go wrong. It gets hotter than any gas grill and can be used for smoking if you like bbq.

Going on 6 yrs with a cheap weber gas grill. Original burners and flavorizing bars. I couldnt get more than 3 yrs out of charbroil or other cheap brands. The burners would rot out and flavorizing bars would be dust by year 2.

Weber actualy has a warrenty on the burners and other parts of the grill. They sent me a whole top lid when my new one came dented. Its in the attic of my garage.

Im in the northeast so this may be why a cheap grill only lasts a few seasons. I can say that my weber still cooks as even as the day i got it home. The cheap ones had really bad hot spots.

Thats not a reason not to have a grill and a few propane tanks around. You can cook many other things on a grill becids meat.

Wrong.

Some of us have livestock.

Used to be: people got together with their neighbors and rotated butchering so that there was a constant flow of fresh food.

I really like roasted/sautéed peppers, onions, and shrooms. And apples, pies/tarts, potatoes, corn, s'mores, quesadeas (sp?), etc., etc., etc. on the grill/baked under the dome... I've even done cookies

I'm smoking some baby back ribs this afternoon, I just have a small Char-Broil brand smoker. I got it at Walmart 10 years ago as a stop-gap measure, until I got around to buying a "real" smoker. But this one keeps doing the job just fine. Of course, I do try to take care of it. I don't store it outside, etc.

The pickings were getting slim at the grocery store... It's a holiday weekend and also today is OU's first game of the season. The place was hopping.

We bugged in 9 days during an ice storm that shut Tulsa down. This was back in the old days when we lived in an apartment. Everything was electric and there was none of that. We filled the bathtub with ice from outside and kept our meat and food fresh. Every day we cranked up a tiny iron hibachi and cooked a hot meal + leftovers for later. I even made bread.
It may not be efficient for a family but for a single or couple, or for those who prep in tiny spaces, it got the job done easily.

My primary grill is a Chargriller charcoal grill, it's the barrel type with cast iron grates and a chimney. I place the charcoal in a metal basket and set that on a wire rack in the bottom of the grill. The rack will burn out every few years and it get replaced as needed. My grill is around 10 years old and gets used at least 3 times a week, even in the winter during snow storms. I use Match Light as the starter under Cowboy lump coal Just takes a few pieces of Match Light to get the Cowboy charcoal burning.
My other grill is a Next Grill Evolution 2 burner from Home depot It gets used every other day of the week. It's a handy thing to have when I don't have time to wait for charcoal to be ready. I keep around 10 30 lb bottles of propane filled and ready to use.
Both of my grills live on my deck under a roof to keep most of the rain off and the hold up good.
The thing with any grill is to maintain then and clean them every once in a while, I'll break out the pressure washer and degrease them then put a little paint over the rust on the charcoal grill and a little vegetable oil on the inside.

I agree with the WEBER voters.

I have two WEBER gas grills (one I use just for grilling clams). it is about 20 years old. Fixed many parts of it. I am retiring it soon; a WEBER Smoker and a WEBER Charcoal grill.

We grill several times a week and grill year round. I have grilled with the snow falling. LOL. I bet many here do to.

Our local WEBER Dealer has all the common parts and is reliable.

@2008, we bought an all stainless steel Ducane patio grill from an appliance store We’re still using it. I’ve replaced the casters, burners and flavor plates (upside down V shaped) once. Original Ducane parts are still out there on Amazon last time I looked and the cost was very friendly. Ducane was bought out by Webber, they cheapened the product and finally closed out the name. Bastards basically got rid of the competition.

All stainless steel seemed to be the biggest benefit. Sam’s club currently has an all SS grill for $500 (I think it’s a 4 burner) but who knows what quality SS...

Weber here. Have 2; a 3 burner one at the main casa and a 2 burner at the secondary. The 3-burner is every bit of 30 years old and still going strong.

Had a small Hibachi many years ago. Really liked it. Don't remember what became of it.

Exact same thing happened to me. I used to live in an apartment complex, I had my own patio and grilled outside occasionally.

When people moved out of their apartments, they would often abandon perfectly good things because they didn't want to pack it. They would just leave things by the dumpster, free for the taking. And that's how I got the Hibachi grill. It was great, I enjoyed using it, but I have no idea now what I did with it. Probably abandoned it myself when I moved out.

For years I used a small hibachi to do steaks. It didn't require much charcoal. I haven't been able to find a similar one.

I used a Ducane gas grill for 20 years or so. The cooking grills have lasted forever but the replacement briquette racks are not as good as original and the replacement burners don't get hot enough to sear. I may try drilling some holes, the originals had drilled holes the replacements have slits.

Ar present I have a Watchman rocket stove and use it mostly with limbs and twigs from my woods. Wood just does a better job on steaks than gas. It has a stainless steel grill big enough for a couple of steaks.

Not a fan of gas grills, though I second the Weber suggestion. My father have a Genesis, and it's a d*mn fine grill. I bet the thing weighs close to 200lbs, but it's built like a tank. Their support is superior.

Just a piece of advice, if you buy it a Lowes or Home Depot - buy the longest extended warranty you can get. Ask if it covers "everything." Trust me, it might be handy.

But - IMHO - good pellet grills are a superior technology to gas (or you are not considering other options at all?). Once again, this is based purely on my experience of having multiple gassers, charcoal smokers, charcoal grills, pellet grills, and pellet smokers etc. But the pellets add that extra something to the flavor even if subtle that makes a big difference overall.
