Just took delivery of a Weber Genisis Silver C. Cooked with it tonight for the first time. Love it so far

Have an el cheapo charcoal grill that is on it's last legs, plus a little Smokey Joe we used when in the trailer (I even made a cover/carrying case for it). For the first decade or two of our marriage we had nothing but Webers, but find that we like the ability to raise and lower the grill that the cheaper one allows. When in Hawaii, we had a big Weber, then every couple of years bought a cheap hibachi at the end of the season, when they went on sale. That way we could cook for a crowd or for just two. Now I rarely cook for "just two", throwing on tons of veggies, chicken breasts, wings, or extra chops/steaks for future meals. So our next grill will likely be a store brand similar to the one we have. Not crazy enough about smoked meats to own a smoker ....

We have a nice gas grill (can't remember the brand, but got it at Lowe's). What a difference it makes - I think we grill at least 3 dinners each week on it.

Inthekitchen: I recommend you read up on grilling with Alton Brown's book. (I think it's called "I'm just here for the food" or something like that) You can pick it up at your local library. There is a lot of great info on grilling!

BBQ Grill

Whatever you get, the first and most important thing is the adjustment of the grill on which the food sits! Believe me you will really enjoy this feature because you will be able to control the heat which reaches the grilling food and thus cook it to the correct desire.

Should be stated that this is important primarily in a charcoal grill. With gas grills you can adjust the flame instead. I think an equally important feature in a gas grill is to have multiple burners so you can cook either directly or indirectly.

We just have a cheap charcoal grill. Been using it for the past 5 years or so and it's still going strong. My nephew grills year round and he has two of the Old Smokey's, big and small. He loves them.

I have to change my answer, as we got a new grill recently.
It's a Jenn-Air Stainless, and it's amazing how much you can
fit on the grill! Last night we had a big potluck, and my
husband cooked chicken breasts...26 at one time!

I have 2 Weber Genesis Gold with side burner, 2 Weber charcoal grills, and 2 Weber Q's. Nothing beats a Weber. I prefer charcoal way over gas but love the convenience of the gas grill. I have two homes one in Michigan where I spend the summer and my home in Las Vegas where I live. I'm grilling all year long.
