Versatile. Classic. First Class.
Sounds like a weber one touch. Get a copper gold model- just screams "classy"

I agree that's a good grill. My Napoleon grill is essentially a copy of the 22.5 inch Weber kettle except that it has a cast iron grill with adjustable levels and is mounted on a cart.
The Tejas charcoal grill looks great but is a little bigger than I want.

Weber 22.5 OTG, you will not be sorry. I have an 18.5 also but the bigger one has just enough room for a couple of butts, a couple of chicken, 5 lbs. of wings, etc. I smaller one is good to fire up for burger and dogs and sausage.

I would also like any suggestions for other brands. I was also looking at the Hasty Bake Suburban model.
Thanks in advance.
OK, I re-read your post, and see you have budget and desire for something more flexible than even a Weber kettle.

Without any hesitation whatsoever, I recommend the Hasty Bake.

You can crank the heat about an inch under the grate, or lower down by a foot or more. It can do hot and fast or medium-low and slow. (Not really a 220 machine).

The company has been around for decades and will have parts for your grill for the foreseeable future.

It has the grill space to have several things going at once. I picked up a Legacy during the Crate and Barrel fire sale last summer and at $399 it was the biggest no-brainer in BBQ history. At $799 for the Suburban, I still think there's value there - but if you want to cook for more than 2-3, the Legacy is a better bet.

Napoleon makes an interesting charcoal grill, stainless body but don't know much about it. Have fun shopping!
