Best gas grill for under $250??

Looking for the best gas grill for under 250 for father's day. Any suggestions? Dad's not a hard core griller, so I dont need anything specialized.

Thanks.

Look at Wal Mart for a Brinkmann Pro Series 2600. I had one a while back and for the money it was the best gas grill I think you can buy!

I've had my Weber Genesis for over 5 years now and the thing still kicks on every time. The only thing I've replaced was the flavorizer bars. The thing rocks.

Sorry, I meant the Weber Q...a 100, 200, or whatever series. [url="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/601-7950464-6414544?ASIN=B000WOOAQ4&AFID=Froogle&LNM=B000WOOAQ 4"]http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/60 ... B000WOOAQ4[/url]

Thanks for the input guys. Wittdog, thats exactly what I have and what I wanted to get him. But he's got a charcoal grill and I know he's been wanting a gasser for a while.

With a baby on the way, I dont think we can dish out the big bucks for a weber gasser. (My wife better get me one of those for father's day!)

This is just my opinion here LTF but if you have a baby on the way and I was your dad and you spent 200 bucks on a gas grill for me, I think I would not be very happy.

LOL...why? Because I have a baby on the way or because I only spent $200?

I'm splitting the cost with two brothers.

My thought here is that you don't need to spend any money right now. Buy him a card and a bag of Kingsford. He will be very happy with that.

$25.00 bucks, garage sale grab. Built in 1979!

Killer cooker.

Just slightly over your budget but how about a Weber performer, where gas and charcoal peacefully co-exist.

Free shipping on Amazon. Buy through the link on the forum and give the site a little cash as well.
