My Informants tell me it's an Import with very little to Zero support...
It's built for Lowe's exclusively (I think) and is a price point product...

I think some of the Webers have the rotisserie feature.

No need to spend $1,000 for a Weber. Most Webers have a spot for the rotisserie that you can add after the fact.

Came here to say the same exact thing....Find a Weber in your price range...Add the rotisserie (less than $100???) later. Just make sure the model you choose will accept a rotisserie!


Enjoy!

Master Forge Split Lid Gas Grill



i love the fact that it has a Rotisserie capability.
Consumer Reports included one Master Forge grill in its review, a smaller model (GGP-2601, $390). It fell in the middle of the large grill ratings, with an overall score of 66 (tops in that category was 77). It was only average on evenness of heat. However, they said it had no discern able lows.

Well, it ranked considerably below the Weber Genesis -- 66 points vs. 86. I suggest you read the article yourself, then check out the units and come to your own conclusion.

Based on searching the web it looks like this grills gets some poor user ratings from the burners rusting out.

Here's a couple of reviews from searching for Master Forge:

They get about average ratings for grills in this price range.

Here is a site you may like BBQ Source Forums (Powered by Invision Power Board)

You can still get parts for those sold at Lowes and they will probably work for your needs.

Let us know what you end up getting!
