I have been researching propane bbq grills (under $200) and haven't found one that gets really good reviews. Can anyone suggest one that gets pretty good reviews at that price? Thanks much.

I bought a Brinkman stainless steel about three years ago. It was onsale at lowes for about 250.00
I needed a side burner and 4 burners. Mostly because the side burner was invaluble during Hurricane Charlie, as was the larger cooking space.

I'm sure if you shop around you can find a better deal, I was impatient with my purchace.

BUT all in all I have had no issues, it cooks great but I keep it very clean and covered.

You cannot get a good, quality propane grill for that budget.

You will be investing $200 every two years anyway, so invest in a good quality Weber for about $500. It will last much longer, and will perform much better.

Does it have to be a gas grill? I love having a charcoal grill. The food tastes so much better. I stick with Weber. I have never been disappointed with the brand regardless of if it is for their smoker, gas grills or charcoal grills.

I suggest the kettle one touch silver. $70-$90 and you can smoke with it, too. As long as you use lump it will taste great. charcoal(kingsford squares) has a bad taste, imo. Get a weed burner or a chimney to start the lump, $20.

But that is not always for everyone. Taste some food off of a charcoal grill vs gas. Gas is easy, but that is about it, imo.

Lot to choose from, good luck.

Speaking of charcoal....
Why not just spend about 4 G R A N D and get a Komodo
Charcoal burns for almost 80 hours.

Personally, I never saw much point in grilling if not with charcoal, so I can't speak from experience.

Wow - that is amazing. It is a lot prettier than the Weber and it would be nice to have one thing that functioned as a grill, smoker and oven. I guess the difference between the Big Green Egg and this is that this looks a bit nicer and is a bit larger? My husband has wanted one of those for a while...
