the new webers are beautiful grills. when it comes time to replace my 5 or 6 year old nexgrill, that's the way i'll go. i'm hoping to get a searing burner in it, though.

i forget, you want all magnetic stainless steel, correct? the non-magnetic ss will still corrode, i believe.


lol, it's just me and my dyslexia, but the title of this thread is interesting when i read it each time the page loads.

The Weber I ordered (the E-330) has 3 three burners, too, as well as a searing burner. I also ordered the optional rotisserie.

nice! you'll love the searing burner for everything from quickly grilling (less than a minute) things like shrimp and squid, to roasting peppers in seconds per side, to putting a final sear or char for those guests who like burnt food,lol.

good luck with her.

What do you think of the Nexgrill? How is customer service? I assume that's a gas grill?

yup, gas. generally, a good grill, but there's a huge difference in temps all around the grill. you have to learn the few hot spots that are useable for grilling. there's lots of warm spots, (nearly useless on a grill), and there are definite dead spots unless you modify (drill holes) in the flame deflectors. it looks nice after being out in the weather, covered all year long, but the internals are rusting out. more mods to make up for the rot.
again, i like it at $450 from costco, but i know now i should have spent the extra $$$ on a weber.

I have an 11 year old grill from Sears, with a cast aluminum body. Apparently nobody makes aluminum grills any more--they are all sheet metal. I am worried about the sheet metal corroding from the heat and rusting out.

Mine works fine, but I want to hook it to my big propane tank so that I don't have to worry about running out of gas. The gas man told me that mine will not allow that, because it is made to run on the high pressure from the little tank, not the lower pressure from the big tank.

Any thoughts on sheet metal versus aluminum, or the possibility of modifying my current grill?
