Thread: New Grill

  1. #1

    New Grill

    The storms this winter destroyed my grill. I'm going to spend $300 to $500 on a new one. Got any suggestions? Does size matter?

    If you were married to my wife you would understand.

    Its all about a little "me time".

    Agree on Weber. Disagree on charcoal. (Although I prefer the taste of real charcoal, it's too inconvenient.)

    I'd up the budget if you can to go all stainless. My Weber is going on 8 years and looks great. I leave it outside all winter uncovered and I live on the ocean, so it takes LOTS of abuse. I replaced the "flavorizer" bars once and that's it. Regular Webers in comparison last 4 seasons at best.

    You can also get the charcoal assist lighter. Flip a switch, go have a drink, in 10 mins you are ready to cook.

    And the food tastes better.

    Do you drive a BMW as well?



    I'd check out the Kenmore XL2000. It's pretty stellar. Can be found at your local Sears. I have a coupon. PM me if you're interested.

    I googled XL2000 and it took me to this vacuum : http://www.amazon.com/Oreck-XL-Comme.../dp/B000KI9LQG

    I have both a gas grill and a Performer and my gas grill just collects dust now. Can't beat the flavor. I got most of the attachments/accessories too, just made a leg of lamb on the rotisserie yesterday.

    Exactly. Gas assist on the performer with the charcoal chimney and baskets. Doesn't get any easier.

    That's b.c the older Webers were all 302 stainless. The newer ones are not as good.

    Any of the Char Broil indirect heat ones. . ..
    Basically a big pan covers all the elements so only heat hits the meat, no flame. So when it's time to clean up - it's super easy - just clean the big sealed pan.

    Don't understand how anyone can prefer propane to charcoal.

    Inconvenient?

    Douse the f*ckers with lighter fluid, let them soak for a few minutes, then light and wait until the coals turn gray.

    What's so hard about that?

    NEVER use lighter fluid, it f**ks up the flavor!
    Spend $10 and buy a chimney starter.

    Douse with lighter fluid and wait 5 minutes - Light fuel soaked charcoal and wait twenty minutes for coals to turn white. Cook food and hope it doesnt taste like a Gulf station. Wait for charcoals to burn out or pour water on them. Clean up burnt charcoal mess. Change forest fire smelling cloths. Kids decide they are still hungry - Repeat process.

    Or

    Turn knob and push red button.

    no.....

    Light some newspaper under the chimney....in 10 mins you got perfect coals.

    After cooking, let the fire die out itself. Next time you cook, you open the bottom and they fall into collection basket...empty that every 5-6 times.
