Not the kind on your truck. I'm talking gas grills. What is a good low priced grill that will last more than a couple of years? Don't get me wrong, I love charcoal grilling but it's just not convenient a lot of the time.
I bought a gas grill a couple years back on clearance, (end of the season) so I thought I got a great deal. That pos is literally falling apart after 2 summers and one falls use. One burner is shot, the metal where the burners sit is basically gone from rust. I could go on. I do keep it covered btw. Been out looking for a new one and am very frustrated. Everyone tells me anything in the $100-$200 range will do the same. I know my father had bought one years ago that wasn't anything special, like a $150 Wally World (Char Broil) unit and that thing lasted I know a good 10 years. Do they just not make them like that anymore w/o spending $500+ on one? I don't have that kind of dough to spend and if I did I'd rather lift my truck btw. Anyway what to look for in a "cheap" grill? I'd love to buy a Weber but that's just too much right now.
I'm thinking stainless burners is a priority, then a well made frame and lid. I don't care about it looking cool and it doesn't have to be huge. Next I'm trying to figure out if porcelain or cast iron grids are better? I'm leaning towards cast iron but most have the porcelain and make out as if it's the best. I guess this is really more of a rant than anything, but any input will be appreciated.
