I'm a charcol guy and love my Weber. I was first impressed years ago putting one together with my HS buddy. THe directions were in clear literate English with diagrams anyone could understand. THen, the dang thing cooked like no tomorrow, and their basic instructions proved to be a a first rate grilling class. Well, my folks got one on my recs, and were pleased, and I have been with mine, and sis got one too etc.

I have friends with a gas one who swear by it.

You get your money's worth.

I also say you the Weber is worth the extra. I've had a number of the others and they are ok but not the quality of the Weber. Also the neighbor hood dogs tore up the pan under the cooker and I sent them a note asking about replacement parts for I couldn't find it on the web. A couple days later I got a full set in the mail complements of Weber. So great support also.

I love charcoal but for quick grilling my wife uses the gas Weber all the time to keep from heating the house. So IMO you almost need one of each.

Another Weber fan here. Their customer support is phenominal - they sent me brand new grates as well as a new thermometer - no questions asked. They also responded to questions I had immediately via email. Every spring the grill looks brand new and cooks like no tomorrow. Now, I say that not ever using anything but a Weber - but I don't think I ever will. I have Genesis also, and paid around $500 for it.

I have a little Weber "Q" and we love it! Now, I'm thinking of moving up to the bigger weber grill.

Sonds like a clear mandate to get a Weber. Good Luck with your new grill.

I was given a weber kettle grill some years ago and I agree they are great. So good that I used it for roasting joints in the winter. I left it with the property and I have been hooked ever since.

I own Weber, but I can't say that it is the best grill out there, there are better ones. Outside of quality of cooking, consider that any grill will requiare maitanence. Mine for example needs new racks right now now, old ones got rusted. So, I'd say go to store talk to slaes people. Check the grill, not on-line but life one.

Then of course there is that $$$$ issue, your budget. My next grill will probably a prtable outside kitchen.
You are what you eat.
