Default Need Propane Grill Recommendations

Need to get a new grill. Propane at the house is the easiest for what I generally need.

Don't want to spend a fortune but looking for a good grill that will last.


Whatcha got?

Thanks!

I have a Brinkman Select from HD. I was about 1/3 the price of the higher dollar brands. It is 3 yrs old now and still going strong. I think regular cleaning is the key to longevity!!!

I bought this Oklahoma Joe's propane/charcoal/smoker set up at Lowe's for $350 and love it so far. Very solid. Only drawback is the small grilling surface in each, but for the wife and I, it's perfect.

You'd be surprised how few nickels you would have......I used the search function and nothing jumped out at me.....People ask and then immediately get "buy a pellet grill" "charcoal is the only way to go" "real men use mesquite".

Not much in the way of useful information. That is why I asked!

I have been very happy with my Weber Genesis. I have used the 3-400$ jobbers for years and its definitely worth the extra money.
*Very hot very fast
*Cooks evenly
*Replacement parts are readily available if needed.

I have been looking for a Weber Genesis for several months. I also have a Weber Kettle Grill and Big Green Egg. I wanted the Weber so I can cook meals quickly during the week. I saw this thread here.

http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...d.php?t=654616

I took the plunge and bought a 28" Propane Blackstone Griddle. The thing is bad to the bone. I can do breakfast, lunch and dinner all very fast. I have not had a bad meal off of it yet. I quit my search for the Genesis. It was a fraction of the price and it fit my needs well.

Thanks for all the info.

Has anyone looked at the Costco grill?

https://www.costco.com/.product.1500...201803_1500111

$599 is the current price. Seems to have good reviews but don't know anyone that has bought it....

I got tired of buying a new stainless steel grill every 5 years. The "lifetime" burners might be okay, but the non-stainless bottom or back of the grills would rust out.

Bought a Weber probably 15 years ago, and it is going strong! Not replaced anything on it, and it gets HOT!

Get a Weber and thank us later!

If the Genesis is a little out of your price range, I have the 3 burner Weber Spirit and my wife probably cooks on it as much as I do. We cook on it about once a week. 3 years old and it hasn't shown any sign of wear. Had venison Italian sausage tonight!
