Brother, I've said ALL of this. I have a $900 weber genesis that has worked flawlessly over the past 9 years and you won't to hear something STUPID???
I recently bought a $35.00 weber smokey joe gold and I kid you not when I tell you that it blows the genesis out of the water when it comes to grilling! I was a non-believer, but can honestly tell you that, now that I'm confident and proficient with charcoal, I can't see myself firing up the genesis anytime in the near future.
Get the acorn, switch to all charcoal, and enjoy every single minute of it!
