Yeah, I'll swear by the Big Green Egg. Only a few parts will ever need to be replaced. But, if I were to invest in something new, it would probably be a Traeger. It's a lot easier to keep steady temps with gas while smoking.
Traeger is not a gas smoker....unless those were unrelated/adjacent sentences, then carry on.
Also, Consumer Reports listed the top three gas grills as Weber Genesis, Brinkman, then a Charbroil. If you read through the reveiws of each on Home Depot's site you'll see the Weber is a clear winner.
As a side note, several of the Weber-Stephens family members are ISU alumni!
Really like my Weber Genesis. Tried two other cheaper types before this one.
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
Not only that, you can sit and relax with your first beer waiting for the coals to heat up. It took my wife forever to realize why I preferred charcoal.
It's a good thing my wife doesn't frequent CF. You DO KNOW that there are things that are best left unstated..........
for me, it's strictly the fact that I learned to cook on chargoal. I don't get gas grilling. I burn everything. I can feel my coals when I dump them out of the chimney and I know exactly how long to cook everything for desired doneness. It's one of those things where I am just set in my ways. I'm too afraid of switching, and then going back to charcoal, because that's all I've ever known.
The waiting for the coals to be ready, and watching them with a beer, that's one of those little perks in life that make it worth living.
