    Default Looking for input on the best grill

    Going to buy a gas grill soon and I know everyone has their favorite charcoal or gas. I love charcoal but the wife often cooks and she prefers gas because its easier for her. I have been looking at Holland and Weber grills anybody got pros and cons they want to throw out there please do. Thanks in advance!
    If I can't fix it you got a REAL problem!!

    wish i could help, but I have always had cheap gas grills, but the charcoal grills...definite difference.
    I would look for one that is easy to clean and cooks evenly

    A couple years ago my wife bought me a charcoal grill that looks like a 55 gallon drum cut in half. It is big and not always the best choice for small meals. I was looking at their web site recently and noticed that they now make one that is half charcoal and half propane. The brand is Char-Griller. That option right there offers the best of both worlds.

    Jeff you really cant go wrong with Holland imo.
    several people i know have them and have had them 10 plus years.

    Weber makes some nice upper end grills as well.

    anything else you buy will usually only last 2-3 years with heavy use mainly throw away garbage!

    if i was going to buy a new gas grill and money was right it would be Holland all the way.

    just my thoughts Travis.

    After lots of looking today I have decided that grills are like boats you get what you pay for! Still undecided but keep the comments coming. Like Travis said I want one that's gonna last a LONG time!

    Holland all the way for the best out there and they have a lifetime warranty .. I myself have a Ducane and I really like it. All stainless and easy to clean and has a rotisserie.

    in the end it needs to come down to how much you gonna use the SOB!

    how heavy built is it?
    how will it weather if left outdoors all the time(or extended periods)

    most all of the grilles/charcoal cookers you buy at department stores are SHIT!

    i went with a kenmore 5 burnger gas grill, then converted it to natural gas. running out of propane sucks. it got great reviews on sears, kenmore always has parts, its been outside and we're about 2 miles from the beach. 0 rust so far. easy to clean and it gets to about 800'ish degrees on full blast. i knew i wasnt going to use sideburners and it comes with a side searing grill, and a rotiserie burner inside. also has built in lights (plug it into a wall outlet, not stupid battery powered led's...)

    my Inlaws have had the same stainless holland for over 10 years. They liked it so much they put one on the houseboat which is now long long, but they kept the grill, so now he has two Hollands side by side and have never had any problems, aside from grease getting on the igniter from years of use and all that too was some cleaning to fix.
