Favorite Gas Grill make/model?

Postby mox » Sat Dec 08, 2012 4:11 pm

I know my way around charcoal. Prefer it any day.

Have been given a couple gas grills. Those are now out of commission and wife has awarded me a grill pass. Need some feedback:
-favorite make/model
-btus
-any ceramic or rocks
-accessories
-anything else I need to know

Not looking for a holland. Been there, it was ok, ready for something else.

I think I have a Genesis, had a lifetime warrenty on it. I got it from my parents when they moved to AZ. The grill is on its third set of burners in about 15 years...worth the $2,000 original price tag. Get something that has an awesome warrenty. In AZ my parents bought a infra red grill from a store down there, those things work pretty sweet as well.

You get what you pay for in gas grills. You have to decide if you want to go disposable, semi-disposable, or permanent.

I've had my three burner DCS 75000 BTU for almost 20 years. Replaced one thermo coupler and one set of ceramic holders in that time. Ducane makes a good grill too. I still have my old one. Unfortunately, they don't have the BTUs for good searing, but they are excellent for chicken and pork or rotissing.

A very nice value priced grill is the Cal Flame. I've given two as gifts and they are at 5 years and still going strong.

In the unlikely event that I were in the market for another grill, I'd have to take another look at Lynx.

You can get nice looking, value priced grills at the home stores, but they typically won't have the btus, the even temperature across the whole cooking surface, or the longevity of a better grill. Some of the lids aren't double walled, so the exterior will discolor over time as well.

Quality posts gentlemen. I'm not married to the home stores by any means. Gonna chew on this for a little while.

Infrared grills seem like you'd have to clean them fairly regular. Is this true? I'm in to taking care of my investments but don't want to be annoyed with every-other-use cleanings.

Those burners that I replaced all have been under warrenty also. If you have one of these stores near you(http://www.bbqgalore.com) I would check them out. They maybe overpriced on some items but the grill that my parents got was patented by the guy at the Chandler AZ store.

I love my Holland Grill. I cook on it literally 6 nights a week.

I have a discontinued model as it was made in '98 and still going strong.

We got a new Holland Grill Maverick for Christmas. I think they're some of the best grills on the market. Guaranteed not to flame up. Makes cooking a snap for something like duck wrapped in bacon and things like that which will drip on the burners of normal grills and flame up big time. Try one. You'll never regret them.
As for smokers, Traeger hands down.

If your looking for a good grill that will last. ( ours is around 10 years old now ) Go with the Brinkman. I have the Pro Series 4400, I clean it about once every other year. ( Mine gets a greasy, and since we have it in the garage, it gets dusty too.) So a good wipedown, every so often doesnt hurt. I've only ever had to pull the grates off once, and that was to power wash them. Other than general maintenance. Brinkman is the way to go :thumbsup:
If offended, and or irritated with the above post, please refer to my caring face :hi:

Wouldn't bother with something that expensive unless your pretty meticulous about maintenance. Your grill may last forever but you can dish out hundreds every few years on the internals if you're prone to letting things go.

I just have a cheap charbroil but I put a set of mangrates on it. They work awesome, last forever and I will put them on every grill I buy.

That's more than some do and I also think living in mn does a number on them if they're left outside all year. Spare guts for a weber cost most than most grills new.

Not a green egg guy but I have used a similar one from Lowes called the akorn... Worked great and a lot cheaper than a green egg
