FWIW: Just replaced a Traeger Junior 20 pellet grill (good combo deal from Costco) with a Pit Boss Pro Series 1100 (from Lowes). Looking forward to bigger and better cooks! VERY impressed with the Pit Boss at this point. I still have a ~25+ year old Weber Genesis in fairly good condition (soon to be sold) but I've now jumped full bore to pellet grilling (for my needs).

https://pitboss-grills.com/Shop-Pit-Boss/Grills/wood-pellet/1100-pro-series-pellet-grill

I do like many of the features of the Camp Chef Woodwind SG 24 grill w/Sidekick or Sear Box (both new for 2019), but the added features just was not worth the nearly doubled price (when adding up all the same accessories I would want) to the Pit Boss grill. No doubt the Woodwind is a great pellet grill and the latest commercials are hilarious (see their website). YMMV.

No and TBH they don't need to. Grills operate a temps which will even burn off the seasoning of a cast iron pan.


I guess I kind of figured this was the case. I made the mistake of storing my cast iron pans in the broiler part of the oven to find all the seasoning flaking off.

My over 20 year old painted steel base on my Kenmore grill has barely rusted. I merely put a cover over it after each use, once it has cooled down. I think I might have waxed it a decade ago, I mean the base and shelf only, which do not get very hot.

The cover has worn the paint off the top corners of the cast metal lid frame. It's some zinc looking metal that does not rust. The lid panels are painted sheet steel and have no rust.

Whatever you get, get cast iron burners, and give up the fight about keeping the ignition system working. It's less hassle to just use a $3 fireplace lighter from the dollar store, which is handy to have around for lighting other things too.

Another vote for Weber.

Bought the rough equivalent of this 20 years ago:

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Weber-S...ne-Gas-Grill-in-Black-44010001/302976462

In all those years only replaced the igniter and flavorizer bars. Stainless burners rock.

The basic model of a top line company is better than the best of a lesser firm.

Don't need massive size, 3 or 4 burners, side burners, etc. which jack up the price.

360 sq. in. is a lot of grill area. If you are cooking for an army, get your neighbors to help.

This.

I got tired of replacing grills every couple of years. Bought a Weber Genesis about 14 years ago and still have it. I have had to replace the inverted V tents over the burners and the igniter in the 14 years I have had it. The doors to the storage underneath have fallen off and the tank support has rusted through but the guts of the grill are still good. I may just make a stand out of treated lumber to put the grill on and keep on grilling.

I've got a 2007 model Weber Genesis that I got second hand a few years ago and its a great grill. You want the ones that are all stainless including the grates. All mine has needed is the 'flavorizer bars' and an igniter. Not bad for a 12yo grill I use frequently. I think the new equivalent would be around $1k which is hard to swallow. I paid $200 for mine.

Went looking around these past couple of days. Most of ya'll are spot on. To get the "good" stuff, you got to drop some cash. Those grills in the 225 or less department are pretty much flimsy and not very sturdy. That Brinkmann I got, you could put a V8 on it and it would hold it. That thing is solid. Did some more tear down and think I'm just going to rebuild it. I can get the two crucial parts, flame rail and burners for around 100. Still need to get a heat plate but noticed they are some cheap ones at Walmart....one size fits all kind of thing, and just replace it more often. One thing I can't find is the electronic ignition module. Since I'm the only one doing the grilling for the family, I'll just get use to using a long lighter to start her up. Just can't let it do after seeing what I'd end up replacing it with. I know, at some point before I retire, I'll drop the bucks and get a high dollar one and hopefully that should be my last. Appreciate the input and as usual, great advice from ya'll.

My Weber Genesis is now 18 years old and still going strong. I have stainless steel grates and flavorizer bars. Grill is used year round and stays out on our deck and has hardly any rust to speak of. The igniter no longer works and I need to replace the original burners. I think it was $400 when we bought it.

Totally agreed. That's the exact model I have, in turquoise. I'm tired of replacing grills after 4-7 years. Mine's covered as well these days.

I've got an all stainless Jenn Air that we got 15 or 16 years ago. Still looks as good as the day we brought it home. I replaced the cast iron burners and stainless shields a few years ago. Grillparts.com is excellent when you need to fix any grill.

Last time I got a grill, I looked through Craigslist, etc. Found a lady that had a huge, all stainless Member's Mark from Sam's Club. She had it advertised as "free...doesn't work". So I inquired about it. Said her son bought it brand new...they used it about 3 times the year they had it and it quit working right after the warranty ran out. Also said the igniter never worked. I went to look at it...still looked pretty new other than it didn't have a cover on it. But it was all 100% stainless. I looked it up...this was a $700 grill brand new.

I loaded it up and brought it home. Hooked a propane tank to it and turned it on. I could hear it leaking from the regulator. $20 part. Next, I checked the igniter. Never had a battery put in it. Also in the bottom of the cabinet of it was a rotisserie kit that had never been taken out of the box.

I've had it 10 years now. I did replace all 3 burners last year. $25 each. The ceramic flame tamer plates started getting brittle and crumbling. A new set of those was another $60...so I went a different route. I bought 2 generic wire racks for $8 each and cut them to fit the flame tamer rack...then lined it with lava rock. It cooks more evenly now than it ever did with those ceramic plates. A bag a lava rock is cheap. So when they get saturated with dripping grease....I can change them out with new ones for about $4/bag.

Moral of the story...weigh your options and look for deals.
