I've got a Sears propane unit that was made by Thermador but I don't think they sell them anymore. This grill is a workhorse with very heavy porcelain cast iron grills (two sided). I haven't done anything to it but clean it since I bought it about 7 years ago and it's outside all the time. I'll have to this year, at least the ignition gas channels need attention. My brother had the same one and I really liked it, all but the price that was. Got a great deal too but that's a story. All in all I got it for 40% of the asking price 8-) It cost me less than the nice Webbers.

Also have an 18" Webber Smokey Mountain bullet smoker too. Found it on craigslist, newly assembled and never used at half price! If I change the grill and charcoal pan configuration for grilling and not smoking, I can use charcoal to grill with too! It's not super big for that purpose at 18" diameter, but grilling with charcoal is the best.

I have seen it with john deere tractors and others that now sell at lowes. I have always liked the webers, know people that have had them for years very well built. just a little nervous now.

I don't know how they used to be - I could never afford one before. :lol: (not that I really can now either ...)

I still wouldn't buy any power equipment at a big box store, but a grill is pretty basic -- a few valves, hose, ignitor, plates, grills, & burners - not much they can cheap out on that they can hide. On a mower or weedwhacker you'll never see the chinese bearings with a half drop of grease in them ... or the bamboo connecting rods ...

Thanks in advance, Eric


If it is a "Perfect Flame" model, you might want to check to see if there is a recall on the burners/lid. I just sent my paperwork in today.

I'd like to get a smoker to supplement my gas grill. The gas is nice for making burgers and dogs for the kids, but I want to get into a little more advanced food this year. :D

I checked and mine is in the recall I just called them. Bad thing is my grill already caught fire, I got it out with the garden hose, called the company and they sent new burners, but that was before this recall was dated. So it looks I am due for a lid and new burners again :roll:


Thanks again, Eric

Mine caught on fire but I don't think it had anything to do with the recall. Just didn't clean it enough and it was a 100*+ day so it was all ready to spontaneously combust anyway. :D

I need the panels just above the burners. The grease deflectors or whatever they are.

I use a Weber "Q" grill. It has the cast aluminum body and is made for the long run.It is called the Baby "Q".It is small in size and we take it camping as well as backyard cookouts.It has easily controlable heat settings and is easy to clean.It is thrifty on the propane also.It does a rustic pizza that is as good as any you will ever get. At the end of last summer I purchased a full surface grill top for home fries,eggs or whatever.I don't ever expect to need another outdoor grille.Weber is worth my money. Mike

I have a pellet grill and i wound not go back to anything else.
Its great and has the option to smoke.
I smoke steaks for a couple mins and then kick the smoke off.
I used to use charcoal and I did like the taste from that but now that i have my pellet grill I wont go back.
They do cost more but i think that its worth it in the long run.
I leave mine out all winter and cook with it all winter.
The only pain that i can see is if the pellets get wet.
Mine was used and sat outside for 5 years with out being used and i plugged it in and gave it a good cleaning and it started right up.
They make all kinda different pellet flavors.
Its self lighting and thats nice as well.
but cooking burgers on mine makes a mess of it and you have to give it a good cleaning after your done or you can just burn the grease out of the grill.

Well the search is over I got the mid level weber no side burner, and three main burners. The best part was it was $75, picked up at an auction by my uncle :) . Great shape, cleaned out the burners and fired her up. Cooked a steak on it the next night, such great temp control. So far lovin it.

Thanks to all that replied, Eric

I just picked up one of these (The Q100 model) a few weeks ago to use for picnics, tailgating and camping. I was skeptical of how well it would perform, and almost bought a Smokey Joe instead. But, I didn't want to have to deal with hot charcoal after the grilling is done and we want to leave. I read the reviews which were almost universally positive, and decided it was worth a shot.

Needless to say, it rocks! I am more than impressed with the performance of it, and it cooks a lot of food for it's size. I did a pork loin and 4 large ears of corn at once, and have grilled burgers, brats, hotdogs, and chicken breasts, all turning out spectacularly.
