Life. First you think, I need a new gasser. Before long the wood and charcoal burners are rusting. Life. Then you just don't have time to keep the propane bottle filled. Life. Then you find yourself three days a week in line at Panda Express. Then you find out your wife brought you a cat, for company. As your friends don't hang out quite as long for a five minute cook, as they did for a 7 hour+smoke. The beer is warm. The deviled eggs don't quite taste the same. Life. Extra duck sauce, please.

I want one too.

Nice Ron! I still occaisionally use our old (15 or so yrs.) Genesis. Especially now that I need to get around to replacing my BGE gasket!

Shot fairy likes it (the gasser) because it's fast, as you said, for weeknight dinners and such. Mostly been used as BGE Eggcessoy storage the past few years. Eventually we'll likely break down and get a new one, but I'm not impressed with the quality of the newer weber gassers I've seen.

Can I ask where you got that Saber?

Free delivery, too :) But you have to pay IL sales tax up front.

There are also a couple of online places with free shipping. Same price but no IL sales tax up front. Of course, you're supposed to pay it when you file your IL income taxes next year

We do a lot of business at the local Great Escape and they treat me well so I decide to give them the business. Their accessories (cover, rotisserie, which I didn't get yet) are less than online.

Yep, but this time of the year it is in the competition trailer so it's a pain to get to for day-to-day cooks.

Nice toy Ron. I just had to replace all the burners and drip guards on my gasser this year. It wasn't cheap when I bought it, but it's turned into a rust bucket on the inside. The outside is still pretty looking stainless. I replaced the burners and plates with stainless, but what they attach to is almost gone. It's good to see that someone is putting stainless where it counts. Happy cooking!

$999

Not cheap, but in the same range as the Weber stainless Genesis and less than the Weber Summit line.

The Saber Cast 500 P is $799 (I think) but doesn't have as much stainless and no side burner.

https://www.sabergrills.com/product/...ast-500-P.aspx

There are also two burner versions available.

Ok, so I'm confused. I always thought the whole infrared was electric basically ... so it's a gasser?

How does it "work" then?

All of the Char Broil infrared models are gas I think.

Char-Broil does make some electric infrared grills...

http://www.charbroil.com/grills/electric-grills.html

the Patio Bistro line are billed as electric infrared grills.

Here is a decent explanation about infrared grills. Every manufacturer has their own system, however.
