OK I am on my 3rd gas grill in 6yrs since moving to Florida.
My first two were under $200.00 grills. My current grill is a charbroil. Paid 400.00 Has cast iron burners Figured they would last.(they are fine) The outside is 50/50 stailess and cast. Decent shape. It's the heat plates and runners( the plates that cover the burners and the runner or ?? that travels the flame to lite the other burners. Well they are all rusted out.
About 2 weeks ago I did a high heat cleaning. The stainless lid which was shiney now turned brown. I thought I bougth my last grill. It appears not.
I dont need all fancy side burners etc. Never use them. Not sure on the infra-red style( I see at lowes and HD). I like to get my steaks in some fire.(charred)
I see some of the all stainless grills for 6-800. But you cant see any burners.
MY current grill I removed one of the heat plates so my steaks are right over the open fire and flames up. For everyone else I cook them normal on the other part of the grill.
Can I find a lasting grill for 500.00 or do I have to spend 6-800.00 ???
