    Grew up on charcoal. Still use charcoal. Maybe I’m better off not knowing what advantages and delights gas offers.

    Thx for the tip wcinewbie.

    Unfortunately I’m waiting until I hit a 5m net worth before forking down on one : (

    If anybody else is in the market for a grill, costco has the weber 3 burner for $799.97.  Helped myself to one last week.

    FYI It's a Weber S-345, basically an S-335 with some extra stuff.

    So we’re five pages into the “to grill or not to grill” thread.  Has anyone made the “not to grill” case?

    Even the vegans can grill their zucchinis and portobello mushrooms.  Where is the “not to grill” argument?

    We didn’t own a grill when I found a new Weber on clearance a year or two ago for 50% off.  I bought it.   I went home and read about the carcinogenic effects of grilling meat.  I have multiple family members with GI cancers diagnosed before age 50.  Even if the risks aren’t massive, I knew the knowledge of them would suck the joy out of using the grill (I know you can grill things other than meat… but I wanted it for the meat!).  I returned the grill and have no plans to own another.

    There you have it.  A case against grilling.

    Not diminishing your story at all, but I suspect the amount of alcohol I consume peri-grilling is much more deleterious than those carcinogens.

    Well, until I get mauled by that bear, which will then top the list of bad outcomes....

    I didn’t think it was truly a question, but I only have one argument against grilling: bear attractant.

    Overall still worth grilling, but I hate bears.

    My wife and I had to step over fresh bear scat twice yesterday on our hike through the woods.

    Her approach to the potential threat of a bear attack is to read all she can about bear behaviour and know what to do in response to the bear.

    My approach to the same problem is to know that I don't have to run faster than a charging bear, I just have to run faster than my hiking partner.

    Have considered getting a handlheld searer but haven’t pulled the trigger.. still trying to perfect the sous-vide technique

    My brother purchased a Searzall, but he doesn't really like it that much.  He mostly uses a charcoal bbq to sear his sous-vide steaks.  The last time we ate together, he didn't even dump the charcoal out of the rapidfire chimney starter - he just put the grill grates right on top of the chimney starter for searing the steak (which is much hotter than dumping them out in the bbq and spreading them around).

    Took you long enough to order it! I thought we would be seeing some grill and food pictures by now! ;-)

    I have had a Weber Genesis II for a while now and love it. I got the similar unit but without side-burner which I never use.  Like the Weber much better than the Vermont Castings grill that we have at cottage.  With your NW and apparent frugality I would go for it... Blow that Dough!

    Thank you for this thread. Similar to a new TV, I’ve been meaning to replace my ancient blue light special grill. I as well use it often. I was hoping to see if there was any experience with these: http://www.grillworksusa.com/products

    Kinda makes the 1k grill seem like a bargain.

    those adjustable pulley grills I really dislike because I can’t get the temp consistency I want.  webers & kamados do what I want.

    grillgrates are an awesome upgrade for any grill  https://www.grillgrate.com/

    meathead has good ratings  https://amazingribs.com/ratings-reviews-and-buying-guides

    slow n sear is useful if you like charcoal  https://abcbarbecue.com/products/

    Now I want some grill grates too!

    amaz-e-n is ok I guess, I'm not in love with it...  it's finicky and requires practice, don't overfill it with pellets or the fire will spill over the barriers and the whole tray will ignite.  you'll have to play with your vents to ensure it gets enough air to keep smoking without losing temp control.  and use a butane torch to ignite it, keep it on the end for a solid 30-60 seconds to get it nice and lit

    i love grillgrates - can easily set up indirect zone, beautiful sear marks, smokes quite well, excellent heat control, cleans up easily
