This is the worst webber I have ever owned.

I've had this grill for two years now and am ready to toss it down the patio stairs.
First, let me say that there are specific steps to lighting this grill. I know this because I thought just maybe I was doing something wrong (I am not).
The heat regulation on this thing is the absolute worst. It will get up to 500+ degrees relatively quickly, but you cannot get it to stay at anything lower. If you set the knobs lower, it usually doesn't make a difference OR it will go all the way down to under 300. There is nothing in between. Of course, in the two years I've been struggling with this "grill" (more like a kiln) I've played with the settings. They just don't work.
So, basically, it has two settings: Not even close to hot enough or fires of hell hot. Either your meat is charred on the outside and raw in the middle or it just sits there at too low a heat to do anything worthwhile. I've taken to putting larger cuts on the grill for a couple minutes on each side then finishing in the oven.
Finally, this issue is not unusual according to google. It's surprising how many glowing reviews are posted on this item. I wish I could post a glowing review because that would mean that this grill actually works the way it's supposed to.
