I use U-Haul as well for fill ups. They are the cheapest in my area.

I love my weber genesis. When putting it together I use thread lock and it is still as rock solid as the day I got it, and that was 5 years ago

Not sure, but don't hold your breath for Weber grills going on sale. When any of the big box stores have coupons, Webers are always excluded. Their price is pretty much their price year round I believe.

Exactly. The end of season sales are used to clear out merchandise that retailers either don't want to store or think they'll have trouble selling the next season. Quality BBQs like Weber and Napoleon rarely change their designs from season to season and are always in demand because of how good they are. The stores also don't expect to move as many $1000+ BBQs in a year simply because most people will buy the cheaper brands thinking they're getting a bargain so they tend not to stock them in as high a volume.

Nice thing about buying them though is that, while the initial outlay is more, you're also buying a BBQ that will last you at least 10 - 15ys with a little regular maintainence and rarely requires replacement parts. My Napoleon for example carries a limited lifetime warranty on all major parts including cart, oven box, burners, grates, etc. it's a direct replacement for the first 10 years and a 50% replacement from year 11 onwards. I believe Webers warranty is very similar if not better.

Even though is feels expensive when you're making the purchase it pays for itself pretty quickly given how quickly the $300 - $400 BBQs wear out and have to be replaced. Besides, cooking on a good grill is a much much better experience. It's so much easier to to get good consistent results every time you use it. I couldn't imagine going back to a "regular" BBQ now.

It's also the little features that you appreciate. My cooking grids are a good 4" above the flavour diffusers. Means that flare ups are almost never a problem plus I can fit a full size 10" lausanga pan between the diffusers and grids which is perfect for a moisture and drip pan when I'm doing roasts. This pic for example was using that technique a couple weeks ago to do the most amazing bacon and apple stuffed frenched rack of pork. Cook time was 3.5hrs @ 450F, had to refill the pan with water and apple juice twice

I got my Weber Genesis 310 from Home Depot. Bought it ONLINE got free shipping and it was dropped off at my house. Took about 90 min to put together. I believe the cost was 700*(propane model 650, I bought NAT GAS model was 50 more) and also bought the cover blanket for another 50. like I said before, I have an outside portal that is tapped into my gas line, the pop off line to grill is another 40.

Most Ace Hardware stores do the assembly on grills included with price; or at least they did for 3 different friends.

Home Depot does it for all models but then you have to transport it home. Bro-n-Law works there and told me just have it drop shipped and he would help build.

Nah, I'd rather do it myself but thanks for the generous offer. Besides, I'm pretty sure Home Depot doesn't use LocTite on the screw threads. ;-)

Grill came today! Can't wait to use it.

Question: the cooking grates have a smooth side and a raised side. Which side should face up? I've read mixed reviews and can't seem to get a solid answer. Thanks in advance.

If you can Dave, put one each way and see what ya like. Once you figure it out, flip the other one over. Me, I'd go raised side up.
