Char-broil 26" Magnum

Anyone cook with one of these? I have seen new ones of these for about $90, and I am looking for a kettle grill. The Weber one touch is 22 1/2" for about $130. Any thoughts?

There's a reason there's a cost diffrence. The racks are made of much thinner material. The body is also of a lesser grade. I own a Char-Broil 22 1/2" kettle and it works fine but when I buy another I will buy a Weber. They are well worth the extra cost.

Thanks for the advice, I pretty much of knew which was the better grill, but still valued any input from this great resource. I just happened to walk by a Magnum in the store while purchasing an unrelated product and paused for a moment to check it out. As the weather gets nicer here in MN, should I look for a garage sale Weber, kind of like the barn car find, or just get a new one? Thanks for the help!!!!!!!!!!!

By the way I own a Weber Silver gas grill (check out the "I had to have wings" post from earlier) that I love.
