Default gas grill recommendation?

Hey, gang. Many of you are accomplished tailgaters. By extension, I might infer that you also grill it up at home. I am in the market for a gas grill. Does anyone feel strongly about their particular product (good or bad) and why? I am looking for your recommendations.

Thanks,
Rick

I'd say Weber is the best from all of the research I did before getting my grill and I did a lot. Try to find one with solid stainless steel parts in the inside for a good price would be my recommendation. The grill should last longer that's for sure. You'll pay less for ones that don't have though though. Probably a few hundred bucks less.

Weber is expensive though. Just for their starter gas grill it's around 4 to 500 bucks. It will last though.

Thanks. I am willing to spend the extra for the longevity. Stainless is a definite positive.

I've got a Freedom Grill and let me tell you, you roll into the lots with one of these hooked into to your trailer hitch and peeps will be ON you. If you scour craigslist there are some new ones out there for under $200.

The stainless steel parts don't burn up and rust nearly as easy. There are some nice bands out there, but everywhere I looked and read, Weber was always the most highly decorated one out there. I ended up getting the Weber charcoal grill with the gas starter. I love it!

This is not a gas grill, but heats up fast, so can be used like a grill or a smoker. I bought my husband one for father's day and it is awesome.

The Big Green Egg. http://www.biggreenegg.com/



If you live in Houston, go to Bering's Hardware and check them out.

Sorry I use charcoal only. Weber is the best charcoal grill at the price by far, so I am guessing their gas grills are good quality.

I would love to have the Big Green Egg, they are awesome, just out of my price range though.

Here's mine:

I prefer charcoal to gas.

So I have this baby. It's got a small propane tank that you can use to start the fire and when the fire starts to die back, you can kick on the gas to pump up the heat.

I also keep the gas on when I'm searing steaks.

This thing rocks.

Dammit. I read tailgater and missed the home part.

My gasser is a Weber S420. Not cheap but I assure you it will last. I've also got a Weber Smokey Mountain smoker that's top notch, too.

The addage is true: Buy a Weber and you'll only cry once.

It's OK, Craig. I appreciated the color of the Freedom Grill, and also your reply. Weber seems to be a common theme.

If you ignore TB's lovely little Trager (great for slow-cooking/smoking), the best Gas Grill is usually by Weber.

I know several of us have variations on the Weber Genesis series grills. I'd advise skipping the all-stainless models (s-Series), and go with an E-310 or E-320 (320 has an extra side burner) and simply buy a cover for it.

The porcelain enameled grates are actually superior to the stainless ones.

That's the same thing as mine sans the table, propane starter, etc. I wanted to get the one you have but opted for the cheaper version on legs. That thing is sweet thought.

I don't know if there is enough height to do a beer can chicken in it though, I am going to test it out soon.

I disagree. Sure it can last longer than SS but you're limited to non-abrasive cleaning tools to clean them. Stainless will wear out over time but you could sandblast it if you had to. A crumpled up ball of aluminum foil does wonders.

I have this one. Weird thing though the first few times I used it the thing would get into the 450 degree range and I could not get it less. Oddly enough it maintains a nice temp now though.

Grilled pork tenderloin on the Egg last night. Incredibly crisp crust and so moist on the inside. Set the Egg at 350, used apple, cherry and maple wood. A nice dry rub on the pork, put it on the grill for 40 min. rest for 10.

Just sayin' - once you egg, you will never look back.
