Call me crazy, but I'd rather have a Weber! They have a 4 burner and a 6 burner model. You may pay more but, buy once, cry once. JMHO!

Great memory there Glenn!! Yes, I do indeed have a Brinkmann Pro Series 2600 (I think it's a 2600, I'll look when I get home). It cost $299.99, and is by far the best gas grill I've owned. It has 4 Cast Iron burners, vaporizer bars, side burner, huge shelf, electric ignition which still has the original batteries and has never failed to light on the first try. This thing is a beast that weighs over 200#'s. The only complaint I have is I've worn the porcelain off the grates and can't find replacements!

Look out! You said something good about another grill other than a Weber??!! [-X

I forgot where I was at. On the other board, I got the second degree for saying I like My V.Castings better than a Weber. Even got a nice e-mail from someone about it lol. (Not the moderator) Glad you like yours, that's the key right there.[/quote37tezn7]

No kidding Bob, I'm sure I'll get grief from someone though. But a Weber grill comparible to my Brinkmann would have probably cost $200 or more bucks! It was an easy decision in my book!

I bit the bullet and went with the Weber Summit 4 burner it is on it's way now. Our ol Char-Broil disintergrated when the wifey used a pressure cleaner on it!

That's one of the grills I was looking at. Trying to justify in my own mind the 6 burner model.
