I know Weber is regarded as one of the best, if not THE best, grill on the market. Are there any others worth looking at?

Does anyone here have any experience with Jen-Aire? There is a whole-stainless model for sale at Lowe's that I really like, yet I find Weber's going for less.

All advice appreciated.

Vermont Castings makes a great grill and Home Depot sells them for $399. Porcelain coated cast iron body will last damn near forever. We just bought one for my parents back in May and they love it. Heats up quick and has three burners for the left center and right of the grill unlike Weber's 3 burners for front/middle/back.

We still use our Weber...have had a Jenn-Aire and an inline gas grill, and I'll never go back to anything else.

Indirect or direct heat and it can't be beat for flavor unless you have one of those humongous barrel grills that smoke all day, too.

I also have a chargriller smoker. It rocks. If you aren't using charcoal your just using a gas range outside. The Kettle is a great grill as well. Had one for years. Just a suggestion if your new to charcoal grilling. Always empty the ashes out when they are cold.They draw moisture and that's why they rust out!!!

I need it to be a stand-alone Propane unit. I don't have anywhere to put a built-in.

The Holland Grill is supposed to be the shit. I don't have one but a guy i know has one. He said its the best grill hes ever owned. Nothing you can't cook on them.
Thinking of getting the little one for camping.

Weber ??

take a look at Broil Kings.
super nice grills...

I'm cheap. I read up a bit and bought a Fiesta (really). I read up on them and they cook as nice as a Weber but the build quality isn't as good.

I bought it a Kmart (on sale of course)

I haven't tried them all, but I have damned sure burned up my share of Char Broils and other cheapo grills. I bought a Weber 4 years ago and it still looks and cooks like new. I couldn't be any happier with it.

I had a job once where I would get a lot of grills for free. Weber 2000, Charbroil, Fiesta,
Kenmore, name it.

I would give them to everyone I knew. Friends and family all were sporting top doller grills.

Now my wife and I cook on an 18" Weber Kettle like five nights a week. Everything comes out great! Cheap, low maintanance, and easy to store.

I love waiting and tossing on the meat when the coals are just glowing.

I love my Weber Genesis Silver B. It's the lower end model of the Genesis, two burners, $400... but it's AWESOME. I couldn't be happier.

I have one of the BBQware grills from Lowes and it's not bad. Only had it since Fathers Day and not really used to it yet. My old gas grill had two burners this one has three. It was easier to cook indirect with the two burner grill. I guess my only real complaint is with only one burner on it's lowest cooking temp is 300 degrees. Now this fall when it's not 105 outside to start with that might change.

charcoal= Weber no contest

Solaire by Rasmussen

Infrared/convection style. Ready to go in 3 minutes. Sears steaks like they do at Ruth's Chris with very high heat infrared ceramic radiation.

I saw a small one at a shop in San Luis Obispo that would be good for taking to the beach at about $300. Runs on propane and has a special ceramic burner.

Weber Genesis Silver B here ... it's only on it's second season, but it has been great to cook on and I don't expect anything less in the years to come.
