Help Me Spend Some Dough on a BBQ

    I am going to have to replace my little 2 burner Kenmore grill soon and with most places putting their stock on clearance this time of year, I figured now was the time to buy.

    I am looking to spend no more than about 4 hundred, hopefully quite a bit less and I am pretty sure I want something with 4 burners.

    Anybody got something they love?

    I'm in the same boat as you; and I've love to get a Char-Broil Infrared or Weber Genesis, but it's way too much cash for me...
    Stay away from Lowe's house brand -- BBQ grillware... three seasons it's rusted out, some of the replacement parts, like the burner covers started rusting within days after putting on the grill

    Lowe's has a combination gas-charcoal grill that I like a lot. Can also be used as a smoker for making proper barbecue (with the proper expensive attachment, of course).

    I don't know if I quite understand the infrared stuff? I am not sure what it is supposed to do.

    Royal Oak charcoal grill with the added firebox is the way to go. You can grill or use it as a smoker.

    Main grill is $300-ish. Firebox is like $75.

    It sears the meat allowing you to create a steak at home on par with the pricier steakhouses.

    I've got a Weber Silver series. It's pretty sturdy and it makes great steaks.

    No side burner on it

    Advice from my Dad:

    Background — Not all "Stainless Steel" is stainless or prevents corrosion.

    Action — Take a magnet. If the magnet sticks to the stainless parts, move on to the next option because you're getting duped.

    Analysis — Dad's been right a lot more than he's been wrong.

    Opinion — Jealousy. Wish I had the dough for a nice gas grill!

    Gas grills are for saps.
    Go charcoal. Get a Webber. A big one.
    It's a pain in the ass when you're learning, but once you get it down it makes a huge difference.
