I gave up on gas grills years ago, as they don't last long under PNW weather. They were okay when I had young, impatient children. I could throw a few frozen, Costco hamburger patties on, and they'd be done in minutes. I have several charcoal, pellet, and electric smokers/grills now, but give me an old fashioned Weber kettle any day. It's still the most versatile outdoor cooking equipment out there, imo.
