my other charbroil i picked up for 139$ at home depot,  rusted out in 2 years, i'm onto a fancier charbroil for 199$ that seems to be holding up better after its first year but the igniter already gave out.

Sounds like you need to by a Genesis now. In 4 years you will have had spent the same money already but will have had to throw away 2 more shitty grills.

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.

yea i agree, i have the weber kettle, but for those times when the kids want the hot dogs/burgers now, you can't beat a cheap propane grill.

I have a 10 yr old Weber Genesis that needs replacing and am hesitant to buy another Weber as the inner layer of the hood has been disintegrating over the past 1.5 yrs and has been unable to get above 500 degrees since I replaced the four burners 3 yrs ago (genuine Weber parts). The new ones look less substantial than my old one and I have seen great reviews for Napoleon grills, which seem more substantial, and come with a 15 yr warranty and are priced similarly or maybe just under the Webers and seem to offer more value. Anyone have experience with this brand or know someone who has?
