View Full Version : Looking For A Grill...

I’m looking for a good grill with a searing burner. It does not need a side burner or a rotisserie — those are “nice to haves”.

So far I’ve found the Napoleon Prestige P500RSIB (https://smile.amazon.com/Napoleon-Grills-Prestige-Natural-Stainless/dp/B01BOZDBH8/ref=sr_1_7_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1509658857&sr=8-7-spons&keywords=Napoleon+Prestige+P500RSIB&psc=1) and the Weber Summit S-470 (https://www.weber.com/US/en/grills/summit-s-470-gas-grill).

Any thoughts on these or any other grills?

I worked at a high end grill manufacturer, their grills started at $13,000. Even if I had unlimited money I would probably still go for a Weber. When I moved out of the city, I was gifted a Weber Genesis from 1995 that still works like a dream. They will have parts for them forever, and with a bit of TLC, they simply last.

I have a Weber Genesis bought in 2001. I replaced the angle irons that go over the burner. Otherwise, fine

Weber for sure. I've had two. The first lasted almost 20 years. Uncovered in rain and snow. Got a stainless one now and I expect to get a lot of years out of it.:2

I'd go with the Weber, Michael. While I don't have that model or even that series, I do have a 10 year old Genesis gasser that has a ton of hours on it and every problem I've experienced, they fixed / replaced under warranty without debate.

If charcoal is an option, its hard to beat a big green egg.

I have been digging my Chargriller that is half gas half charcoal. You get two seperate grills in one unit. Has a side burner which is great to light the chimenea.
