    Default My Weber Genesis Grill is dying....

    Its 6 or 7 years old, and I use it A LOT. I've replaced the porcelain grill plates and flavorizer bars twice, and I've killed my second cover.

    Its pretty weathered because of my location to the beach, and recently had a center valve start leaking (On Easter) and had both wheels break off . I could just replace it all, but I noticed that certain other parts like the removable bottom pan are just dying.

    So I started shopping for other grills, and could have grabbed a larger Brinkkman at OSH and some of the stainless ones at Costco, but when I started reading the reviews from prior Weber owners, the summary was pretty much in line. I'll be disappointed, it will only last a couple of years, and then I'll wind up going back and buying another Weber anyway.

    Weber Grills and Accessories - Grills is what I'm planning to buy.

    Convince me that I'm making the right choice, or talk me out of it.
    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.

    "EXPENSIVE GRILL TO BUY, AND EVEN MORE EXPENSIVE TO MAINTAIN ! !
    AFTER ONLY 3 YEARS, 800 BUCKS WORTH OF PARTS.
    UNEVEN HEAT FROM FRONT TO BACK OF GRILL, NUMEROUS FAILURES ON IGNITORS AND SPARK MODULE.
    NOT WORTHY OF THE $5,000 BUCKS SPENT IMO
    Compared to the positives I saw here:

    Weber E-620 review - Grills

    With the Weber, you call with a problem within the warranty period on parts and they ship them to you, free of charge. I experienced this twice in the first 3 years I owned my old one, and on one occasion I called on a Sunday afternoon and the parts were delivered to me on Wendesday morning.

    There is no way this is a bad choice. What's the price?
