Default Newer colors: blue vs Brick red webers

What do you guys like? I'm torn between the two. I actually think i like the new brick red color better than the old bright American flag red color on the older ones (I expect some flak for that comment).

I like that red, the blue looks a little different too.

I like both the blue and green over the red. The red looks really nice, just not my favorite. Can't really go wrong though with a choice like this!

Nice colors but Black is still the prettiest by a far margin.

the red is not that bright in person. I was on the fence as well till I went to the showroom to look at them. I wanted black but the end of year sale had no black. It was red or green. I settled on the green and am quite happy with that choice.

BTW the gas ignition is perfect for chimneys and a handful of briquets for minion method smoking

I smoke and grill on it and have 2 char bins taken apart to make a fence to always have an indirect side. Then I can reverse sear or at the least use far less fuel

I'm digging the red for sure. I already have a blue OTG so the red would fit in nicely. ;)
