    Need a New Grill

    I usually buy on the low end and replace every 3-5 years. I am not good at maintenance and it will stay out all winter. For years i have used Char-Broil but they seem to be getting flimsier and flimsier each year. I came across this combo and wonder if anyone has ever used one. I have never smoked but would like to try. I don't prepare gourmet meals on my grill, just burgers, steak etc.

    I have always been a fan of the basic weber kettle grill. It’s cheap and I cook some awesome food on it.

    I don’t care what anyone says. Gas barbecues are for the birds!

      my wife thinks charcoal is unhealthy but of course it tastes better, thats why i liked this combo where i could cook both at the same time.

        We leave our Weber propane grill outside 24/7/365. No cover. The only problems I had was a couple of corroded bolts that should have been stainless and I replaced the starter. 10 warranty covered new burners.
        Buy once cry once.

          I've never liked the combo grills. I keep a separate Weber kettle just for charcoal.

          For gas, I usually recommend a Weber, but lately I've been impressed by a more affordable option. Home Depot sells a Nexgrill 4 burner, full stainless steel grill for $269. Link. My parents have had one for a few years now, and it's lasted outside just as well as their Weber. Cooks just as well too. I bought one this year and haven't been disappointed.

            A gas grill heats up in 5 minutes and cools down while you're eating. Much better for daily use.
            No one ever wished they didn't have a gun.

                It's a trade off. By that logic you can just as easily use a cast iron grill pan on the stove top.

                  FYI, that grill is painted. There is no coating on it. Very short life

                    Have you considered a Blackstone Griddle? I rarely use my Weber Summit anymore.

                      One day I'll invest in a Weber . Your right about the charbroils . They now last maybe 5 years max but the burners will last 3 if your lucky . Replaced mine just before the 3 year warranty ran out . None are made out of heavy cast anymore and the firebox just rot through .

                        But even the cast iron skillet makes a better steak then a gas grill

                          I have no problem waiting a few extra minutes for the coals to ash over.
