    Every grill has its purpose.

    Anyone bitching about the Weber being $700 has never owned a Weber, or prefers to throw away $200 on a cheapy Home Depot every other year.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    I think I spent about $700 on my PGS K40 grill in 2000 - thing still grills like a CHAMP 9 years close to the beach, uncovered, and beat to death haha. I'm 100% with Birdman - the money was unbelievably well spent on this grill.

    And Birdman is right, every grill has its purpose. And Weber does make a great long lasting grill.

    There is a couple ways you can do it, grill with direct heat in the main chamber or use indirect heat for smoking via the firebox. You can use charcoal and wood chips, I use split wood without charcoal. I get my wood from a place on Orange by the Honda Center, theWoodshedWebsite.

    They have hickory, apple, pecan, red oak, and many others. They even have French wine oak barrel wood! Either way make sure you get the book Smoke and Spice, its the BBQ bible full of recipes and tips.

    Once you use a Weber, all other grills are irrelevant.

    Yeah yeah yeah, you Weber snobs. My parents dropped some coin on an ugly Coleman propane job. It may be a weird Coleman shade of green, it may be a bit too small for my taste, and I may have to light it with matches because the ignition never really worked, but for the past 7 or 8 years that thing has been a trooper and whatever you may call a fault I prefer to call it a "quirk" of my grill.

    My Genesis Silver is about 6 yrs old and sears perfect grill marks in everything I place on it. It takes a cast iron grill to do it correctly. No cast iron = inferior grilling.
