Diesel,
I would say it depends on what you want to do with it. Grill or Smoke or both.
I too have a perfect flame gasser that burst into flames and they would no anything. I waited until year end at Wally world and bought new burners and new gas line. It works fine now. Of course my firebox is still in one piece.

I am looking at a Weber One touch silver at Lowes. Price at $99, It can smoke but it is a great charcoal grill.

Let's see if some of the vets on here chime in...

Can't beat Weber gassers. They have the history and longevity to trust in their warranty.

Another vote for Weber. I just sold my gasser Genesis for $120 after using it for 10 years!!! Still cooked as good as day one.

I only sold it because I bought a Weber Performer and I didn't touch the gasser after that.

As far as I'm concerned Weber is the only brand of grill I will ever buy.

Weber Genesis all the way. Great grill, and my FIL's is over 10 years old. Heck, it is probably the only reasonable priced gasser that can properly do a steak pittsburg rare!

Drh7003, The gasser is going to be for the grill'n which I do 5 days a week even in the winter and the smoke'n is reserved for the weekends on the UDS which is working great.
I have been looking at the Genesis models but dont know them.

If you are looking for a charcoal grill, Weber OTG Kettle. Everyone knows that.

If you are looking for a Gasser, Weber Genesis or Summit.

The Genesis and Summit gassers are made in USA, age well, and parts are easily available.

My dad has a Genesis that is ten years old, that stays outside under a cover in Houston. It still looks good, and works well.

BTW, I had a stainless gasser, a Charbroil Commercial, and the inner framework rusted out in three years, in farking Dallas. POS. Avoid Charbroil.

I understand completely. I have a covered patio and grill 3-4 times a week. I prefer grilled to baked any day!

Ah, well, my dad doesn't use his everyday. You will probably have to replace the flavorizer bars from time-to-time, and burners will wear faster with heavy use, but the basic build of the Weber Genesis and Summit grills is good, so your grill won't fall apart before the burners need replacing.

My Charbroiler had solid brass burners, built into a framework that rusted out. You can replace burners, you cant replace the farking frame.

If you keep your grills clean, you should do well with a Weber.

I got my Weber 22.5 kettle in 1995.

This is about as good a recommendation as you can get. In Houston pretty much everything turns into a pile of rust in 6 months.

+1 on this too...

I have a Weber Genesis that I've had for about ten years and it doesn't skip a beat. I haven't had to replace anything yet, including the ignitor. Our temps here range from 10 below in the winter to over 100 in the summer. It's served me well.

I picked up a 10 year old Weber Genesis Silver C off Craig's List for $75. A little extra scratch spent on Amazon to get SS grates, flavorizer bars, burners, etc... and a new ignitor, I have a gasser that will last the rest of my life. Of course, I use it once or twice a year because I prefer charcoal, but a guy has to have a gasser, right?
