    Who makes the best gas grille ?

    I was totally F'ed by Charbroil with their stainless steel crap. They suck as a company and their customer service is zero. Bunch of scamming lowlifes.

    Anyway - I have been thinking about a BroilMaster. Anybody have one? And if so; tell me what you think.

    Or; does anybody have any alternate suggestions?

    Weber grills. Have had three gas ones not because I wore them out just upgrading. I gave away my old ones and they are still grilling fine. You can go to any hardware store if you do need parts. I have worked with customer service and would give them an A+. I also have a Weber kettle 20 years old a little ruff but I would still put parts into it.

    Agreed. Weber gives me the most even temp distribution and is built more rugged to withstand the elements better

    Check out Holland Grills:

    http://www.hollandgrill.com/index.cfm?

    We've been selling them for 15 years or so - cast iron burner, no flame up guarantee. I've had mine at home for 13 years and have only replaced the drip pan ($50) once. You can order them online or I can ship you one if you want.

    Tell me more about Holland -

    How much for an Epic?

    How much for an Apex?

    Do they come with a rotisserie?

    How can they be OK with 13K total BTU's when my present grill is 32K and most come with 36K or more?

    Where are you?

    How much is shipping to 08080?

    Thanks!

    So I can't tell you how much my new porch cost?

    This is an HVAC forum - doesn't the "no pricing" rule end at the limits of HVAC installation and sevice?

    So? What's the deal with the low BTU's /

    Why / how can they be so much lower?

    Untill this year, I had a weber genesis gas grill. It was 20 years old and served me great that entire time. I replaced it with a new similar model last fall.

    When the grill was about 12 years old, the legs started to rust off. It was understandable on something that has been sitting outside for 12 years. I called up Weber and asked about buying a new frame for it. Their response "We had a bad run of paint that year, we'll send you a new frame for free"

    Not only did they send me a new frame, but they sent basically everything except the actual grilling portion.

    after experiencing that kind of customer service, I will never buy anything but a Weber
