Outdoor grills

Do you guys know if they'll be on sale anywhere since the summer is ending?

I bought mine from Lowes, Char Broil Commercial with stainless top and enclosed bottom part for $300. Has 4 burners with a side burner, I would recommend it.

I can tell that the Weber ones are built better but I had a hard time justifying $700 for a grill...

I have no problem holding my Char Broil at ~200F, I can slow cook ribs on mine no problem and haven't experienced hot spotting at all. I think there are different grades of Char Broil, there are the shitty ones and the decent ones.

I am in no way comparing it with Weber, but for less than half the price...it's good enough for me.

Charcoal is the way to fly. Get a 22" webber gold with the ash catching system and stainless steel grill top, they also make one with a cart and one higher model with gas light if you don't want to dick around with a chimney. Unless you spend a ridiculous amount on a gas grill, nothing will come close to the flavor and heat you can get from charcoal.

Lowes has a sale on BBQs towards the end of summer, so does OSH.

I want propane with out the burners. I have no need for that. I just want a lot of grill space. Not looking to spend a lot really. Maybe $200 max

I bought a $100 Charbroil 8 years ago because I figured that when it died in 3 years I'd know exactly what I wanted in a grill. The piece of crap won't die. Has a few hot spots, but it still works fine. Someday I'll get a fancy grill, but until then I'll just keep on truckin with this thing.

@ $200 Weber is out. Go with a Char Broil.

Check craigslist and clean it really well. Sounds kind of nasty but I got a really nicely built stainless steel grill and patio set for $200...

That's a good idea. An $8 bottle of Simple Green grill cleaner can go a long way.

Still looks brand new, although I thoroughly clean it once every few weeks. Probably BBQ 4 times a week.

If you don't have any coupons, stop by the post office and get one of those movers booklets. They usually have a 10% off for either of the big box stores. I just did it this weekend for all my tile supplies for my kitchen.

The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there."

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.” “They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”
