I bought my Weber gas grill six years ago and it's still perfect. It gets used year round. I clean the inside out when it needs it and that's about it. It hasn't needed anything and everything inside is still in good shape. They work flawlessly as long as you keep the grease tray clean.

Weber all the way. Bought mine for a house warming gift to myself when I bought my first house in 1997. Works great never have had an issue with it. All I did do to it was change the hook to the tank to use the opd valve.

I also need a new grill, been using the cheap charcoal ones that only last a few years, but I am thinking about a pellet grill this time. These are about twice what I want to spend but the Traegers are now made in china so they're out.

Do not buy a Brinkman, burners rust out very quickly.

Ive had the same propane charbroil $150ish for atleast 6 years, maybe you need to take care of your grill better? but you cant beat the taste of a good charcoal burger. Nothing better than the weber smokey joe tailgating a game.

Absolutely!! I've had an old old webber that I would use, when I wanted to sit around and drink.

But for parties and winter and anytime else, I have a Weber Natural Gas grill, LOVE IT!!

I hope to always have a house with natural gas, just for this reason.

My advice is dont turn on all the burners to full blast and forget to bring a lighter to ignite them.

Eye brows take awhile to regrow.

Must be nice living in the city and all.

NG...running a dedicated line from the house to the grill is a piece of cake. Fawk propane!

I have a members mark stainless steel grill that is noice. Cast iron burners are the shit.
I have also have had cheap grills. Like anything else if you take care of it they will last.

My mom has hers hooked to the gas off the house too and it is really nice to never have to worry about propane. Only problem is that you cannot move it from that position.

I just put my propane tank in a plastic milk crate if I need to take it and get it filled. No problems at all with it rolling around in the trunk. Natural gas would be nice but it would cost me around $40k to get it run to my house.

I have a stainless Charbroil that works well after 5 years. I keep it covered most of the year (when not is use). It seems to help.

I had a Dukane and it lasted 10-12 years until it needed work - and the prices for parts were like buying Porsche parts. Tossed it and bought a cheapo Charbroil that lasted about 3 years without ever being covered.

The Weber gas grill I have was my wife's fathers and they used it when she was in grade school. Its almost 20 years old and works great. I also clean it and cover it quite frequently.
