Thanks again for all your help.
A quick pic, its predecessor in the background. The temp needle on 600 degrees F after not even being on for 10 minutes! (all four burners on).
Now I gotta thaw a steak quick!



Oh, and paint my bottles. This grill is too pretty to have rusty bottles sitting next to it, let alone in it

Ooooh, pacanis, congratulations on your new arrival. It's beautiful. But you need to post a pic of the inside and then again of the first stuff you cooked!

oops, too late on the first stuff
I'll take some pics of the inside today and get them up here.

There's going to be a slight learning curve getting used to all the extra heat, that's for sure. This baby gets hot and cooks fast. It threw my timing off a little It also makes me wonder if my propane comsumption will go up running all four burners, or will it even out because the grill cooks faster..... No matter. This grill was long overdue. If I can get more than my usual three years useage I'll be pretty happy.

That's a great looking grill. You're going to have fun with that.

Thanks, Andy.

Here's some more pics. It's really overcast here today, so sorry about the quality, but you get the idea.
The warming rack stays over the heat (as opposed to attached to the lid) and is easily removable.

Whoooa, can someone fix that?
They were vertical in the preview..... But I admit I was having a hard time with the cursor and adding multiple pics.

So nice pacanis! Is it far and away better than your old grill?

Thanks again. Not only good times and good food, but fast food. I can't believe the time I've lost in my life waiting for things to cook on my old grill, and while it was pretty whipped on, I don't remember it losing that many "steps" as it got older.... I've got that great color back in my steaks again, cooking in minutes like they are supposed to. I also did some bacon wrapped shrimp last night and didn't need to worry so much about flare ups. The real test will be corn on the cob (husk on), but this thing has so much room I can roll them off to the side and shut down a couple burners if I think they are cooking too fast and still have a nice hot section for the meat, fish or whatever. I grilled a couple hot dogs for lunch yesterday with just one burner on high and had plenty of heat, over a larger area than I thought I would, too. The heat deflectors do a nice job.

I see my pictures didn't mess up the thread by making you have to scroll side to side to read every message. I hate when that happens.

Now, to decide what to grill tonight.... can you cook "comfort food" on a grill? My Browns are playing Pittsburgh today
