Shopping for a Gasser

I work for a fire department that is currently in the market for a commercial grade natural gas grill. It will need to be large enough to feed 7-10 guys, sturdy enough for daily use, and as low maintence as possible. We have formed a committee and I'm in charge. So what I am asking is what brands should I be considering?

Re: Shopping for a Gasser

Why Gas? There should be plenty of available charcoal in your line of work.

But yeaaaah.... Weber.

I was thinkin' the same thing.


Might need a gasser for the "Speedy cooking" in between calls.

Don't the Performers have a propane hook up or is that for lighting coals? (understanding he said gas)

Re: Shopping for a Gasser

Sorry for the delayed response. But yeah we generally use gas at the station out of pure convenience and laziness I guess. I prefer using lump my self, but my gasser at home gets a fair workout due to how easy it is to fire up. I want a Weber at the station, as it's what I have at home for both charcoal and gas and love them both. Not to mention that once you into the Genesis and up their practically built like a tank.

Oh and thanks for the compliments on my UDS. That's the first one I've done and I am planning on a second to maybe to a BBQ Comp sometime next year.

Have you ever tried it with rib eye's instead of flank? Much better finished product!
