    Fried okra rocks!
    I have been frying fish outside and it would certainly stink up the house!

    Update: The grill is fantastic! I use it at least 3 x per week. Best cheeseburgers I have ever made. Other items: steaks, shish-kabobs, asparagus, meatballs for spaghetti, chicken. Have not smoked yet, but I have the little box. I have also used the side burner for fried fish, french fries, onion rings and to cook bbq sauce to put on chicken.

    Anyway, well worth the $ in my opinion.

    Thanks

    Thanks, yes, costco is nice. Good info!
    Life is still beyond good.
    I bought it online and they will carry up to deck and put it together (which takes 4 hours supposedly) and i bought it on a “tax free weekend” so I saved 6.25% on state taxes.
    Hank, I already procured 3 propane tanks!

    Grill was: “lost during delivery / shipping” per amazon! The shipping company: “lost it” in my order when I clicked on orders under amazon.

    Amazon now sending another for no charge on a different day. Maybe someone else is using it today to BBQ!

    Ha! Black market BBQ!

    Anyway, it will arrive on Sept 3.

    Consider getting the same exact grill with a few extra accessories for 200 less at Costco (no financial interests).

    Sounds a lot like the delivery guy done stole himself a $1,000 grill.

    Was this perhaps scheduled for delivery via FedEx Ground?

    Well it's more than that.  Searing a steak, for example, definitely improves the flavor, in my opinion.  Just not for that reason.

    What exactly are you needing to clean off that can’t be cleaned by cranking the heat up to high and rubbing it with a wire brush or one of those wooden paddles? When I do those things with the grill on high it gets them very clean. It’s helpful to do it at the end of when you’ve cooked food and the grill is very hot. If you try and do it the next time you grill, at least wait until the grill is very hot before trying to do it. I’ve never had a problem with an unclean grill doing this.

    ‘Dedicated grillers will use charcoal and smokers — I’m not – need quick startup, cook, and clean out.’

    You can’t do that with charcoal and referencing those that don’t care for gas grills.   If one settles onto gas — the difference isn’t the name so much as # of burners and a searing burner to lock in the juices and indirect heat afterwards.

    Loved the Weber, but wasn’t a $2k differential.

    Searing to lock in the juices isn't really a thing.  Common misconception, though.

    The Big Green Egg is awesome. See pics below.

    I know you already bought the Weber. But you're worth 6 million. So you should buy the Weber AND the Big Green Egg.

    Can I clean the GrillGrates in dishwasher?

    Do not put GrillGrates in the dishwasher. The dishwasher itself if not the culprit, but the harsh caustic detergents that can pit the hard anodized surface. Besides it can make a mess in the dishwasher! Do no use caustic dishwashing detergent or oven cleaners on the Hard Anodized GrillGrates.

    You can flip the grill grates upside down, and burn off residue, then flip again next time you grill. Dishwasher????? That sounds like too much of a hassle.

    grillgrates are meant to be seasoned, the oily residue theoretically adds smoky aromatics when grilling which based on what I've seen is clean smoke and not burnt or foul smelling/tasting.  I leave the oil be and scrape the hardened burnt pieces off the grates and occasionally vacuum out the burnt bits deep inside the bbq.  I think just before winter hits I'll deep clean the grates for storage but I haven't found a need to do this in peak summer season.

    What is the best way to clean GrillGrates?

    The best way to clean GrillGrates is during the warm-up of the grill. Set gas grills to medium, with GrillGrates in place and close lid. Use traditional cleaning methods like grill pads or a wire brush during warm up. We don't recommend high-heat burn-off as you burn off the seasoning. Occasional high-heat burn off is fine- especially after a particularly slopping marinade or a lot of chicken wings etc. Periodic cleaning in the sink or in an outside bucket will help keep GrillGrates at their best. The rails of the Anodized GrillGrates clean up well on the grill with a brush and in the sink with a sponge or brillo. Do not use harsh de-greasers or caustic cleaners such as oven cleaners on GrillGrates- they can pit the hard anodized surface. Do not place hot GrillGrates in cold water as it may warp the panels. Soak in hot water and dish soap after the Grates have cooled down. For additional information please refer to our Use & Care Guidelines.

    Exactly.  This is precisely what I do.  I pre heat the grill and scrape clean before I use it.
