Hoody hoo!! Enjoy!

(Nothing like getting a new toy... err... grill!)

Take care,

Always keep an open mind. But not so open that your brain falls out.

Adding my congrats on your new purchase. You simply can't have too many ways to cook in the backyard. That includes side burners. :lol:

Let us know what you think after you fire it up.

Even though I primarily use charcoal, my old gasser does fill a need from time to time. One of these days's it's going to pass on to Q heaven. When it does, reading threads such as yours should make my decision quick and easy.


PS: include pix with your review, if possible.

Good luck with the new Weber. Weber customer service is great. My grill was blown over during a winter storm and my handle broke. I called weber to order parts and they said they would send a new one for free even after I told them the grill was blown over. I have had my Weber Silver C since 2000 and I love it. I do need to replace the flavorizer(sp)bars and thats about it.

I've got a Weber Summit Gold D and it's fantastic. I've found myself using my Traeger instead of my Weber(s) however. It's as easy as the Weber but the food tastes better.

That said, IMHO if you're looking at a gas grill Weber has it hands down. I've had numerous gas grills that ran about $200 a piece and each one lasted about a year. I did get my money's worth outta each one, however, since we grill about 4-5 times a week all year long.

Really...all you have to do is follow Webers suggestions on ways to prepare the food & their suggested cooking can't go wrong!

Welcome to the obsession Marty! Since you're a real newby, you must get Steven's book How to Grill. It will introduce you to all of the various grilling techniques and provide a bunch of great recipes. Once you master the techniques, you'll be ready to move on to cooking so many different things on the grill!
If you don't like the food, have more wine
