Need a Grill for work! Need your help!

Hi guys,

It's been a while since I've been on here.

Im looking for a good grill (prefebly gas) to buy for my work. We're looking for something that can withstand the elements - sun/rain. And something that cleans up fast. We have a water hose available near where the grill is located.

The grills we've used in the past only lasted about a year, maybe. They seem to take a lot of abuse.

Our budget is about $500. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Nick

Nick,
I had one of the Brinkmann Pro Series for several years and loved it. When I decided to switch 100% charcoal I got rid of it and it still had the original batteries for the ignition and they worked. You can get these at Wal Mart for under $500. Now, look out though cause I've seen ones similar to the one I got but with real thin grates and burners. The one I had I think was a Pro Series 2600 with cast iron burners and PC Grates. Very nice grill for the buck!

I have a stainless steel Igloo that has 4 large solid cast brass burners and heavy cast iron grates, a side burner (also cast brass)...and came with a rotisserie unit.

I think it was close to 500 but has been problem free and worth evey penny.

I'm with the boss. Find a Weber in your price range.

For gassers...I have both a Weber Silver B and a VC. Price is about the same round here.

Like the Weber because I can usually get most parts at a big box store and, if not, Weber customer service is great.

IMHO, I believe the VC cooks better. No hot spots, more even cooking, better grates, minimum heat loss when open and closing the lid, holds a more steady temp and seems to clean up easier. One bad note is it does seem to suck more gas then the Weber.

AND before I get persecuted here, I am only speaking to gas grills and my personal experience with them. I am a big fan of Weber and their products.
