Hi. I'm a newbie and getting my first grill this month. I'm finally done with apartment living (yah!) for townhouse living.
Anyway, I've only read great things about Weber grills and was set to pull the trigger on a Spirit E310, but read somewhere that it's made in China (I just emailed Weber CS to confirm or deny). I'm not a huge Buy USA only guy, but I'd like to support American manufacturers, when there is a good product.
This led me to a company called Huntington. Their grill is half price, made in Canada (I think, although they make grills in Indiana as well) has similar specs (3 burners, porcelin coated cast iron grates, flavorizer, a side burner, 5 year warranty on burner system).
I kind of feel like the Spirit E310 is like buying a BMW made in China (although to be fair, it's more like a 1 Series BMW made in China).
Does anybody have any experience with Huntington? Am I just being stupid by not buying the Weber ($250 isn't that big of a deal for me, as I view the grill like a 10 year investment). The only real advantage I see to the Weber are accessories and exceptional customer service when needed.
Any input is appreciated! Thanks in advance!
