Suggest Me a Gas Grill

my tried and true char griller Duo grill has all but rusted out so looking for its replacement.

I like the gas grill for quick cooking of Burgers and hot dogs, and general quanity cooking for a party or whatever. the charcoal side with my smoker box is still in good condition, so i plan on simply making a new stand for it, but gotta get a new Gas grill.

Not trying to break the bank, but want something quality that will last. So, what do you all suggest for a Propane Setup? It stays outside uncovered. Dogs simply won't let the cover stay.

I was shopping last year and never got around to pulling the trigger but the Weber 310 was probably the #1 on my list. Goes for about $500.

http://www.weber.com/grills/series/g.../genesis-e-310

As I recall the 320 has a side burner, which I have never once used on my old grill.

The number 1, 2 and 3 complaints I have with my current grill is flare up.

Char-Broil Commercial TRU-Infrared Stainless Grill

I bought this grill back in August.

No flare ups at all and it sears the meat nicely, plus is has an actual pressure gauge to let you know when the tank is getting low. Adding a rotisserie was a bit of a pain but over all I'm happy with it.

If you don't have to have brand new, I'd suggest checking Craigslist for an older USA made Weber 3-burner grill. You want the one with the longitudinal burners and the controls over on the right side. These grills get amazingly hot for a gas grill, short of one with infrared burners. Parts are reasonable and readily available, and probably will continue to be available for years to come since Weber built this design (in one form/flavor or another) for a long time. Whenever I casually look at Craigslist for these, I'm amazed at the condition of some of them - some look like they been used less than a dozen times and are effectively new.

Just bought a char broil infrared this week actually and I'm happy with it. First time I've cooked sausages and didn't have to deal with flare up. Was nice cooking veggies next to it to aand not losing any thru the grates. For under 300, I'm happy so far. I wanted a weber but just couldn't justify the extra coin

Could well be offshore parts involved. Still even if assembled here it's jobs you don't want to give away that your neighbours have.
I don't think even the smallest job is worth giving away.

price was the main factor when I bought my new grill.

I went with this one.

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Nexgrill-...830H/205449953




Only thing I wish it had was cast iron grates. I can
always upgrade later. I was impressed with the build
quality, and the use of gussets used in the corners!
It doesn't feel flimsy like my old Char-Broil, although
it did last over 10 years. I bought it based on the price,
and the good reviews. 0.02

I do use the side burner every once in a while. Comes
in handy with the carbon steel wok, and when I want
to get the cast iron pan scorching hot. Also in the summer
when I don't want to heat up the house.

When we do right, no one remembers. When we do wrong, no one forgets.
