Yea thatís what Iíve seen and read. Iíd much prefer a American made product. But itís not necessarily enough to make me decide against it. As someone said before the spiritís lid is thin and flimsy. That worries me.

Don't know anything about Broil King, but Weber has been in my arsenal for more than twenty years now, and in addition to great performance they always have parts available. I gave one of my old Weber gas grills to a friend, and he was able to completely restore it with new factory parts. Very unusual for grill companies these days.

Browse craigslist or FB marketplace for a used Weber. Always good deals to be had and easy to replace parts if needed.

Okay guys one last question. I posted about that I have found a Weber genesis silver c. It’ll probably need need grates, flavorizer bars, and I’m not sure about burnet tubes yet. From the pictures it looks like there isn’t any rust, besides the grates. Anyway is the genesis silver a good model?

I had a slightly older version without the side burner. It ran great, but got too ugly sitting on the back porch after 18 years of service. if the price is decent, go for it.
