I'd buy it if I was you...
April 9, 2017
This is a great grill for under 200$. Comparing this grill to a 500$ grill is unfair. If you wanted a 500$ grill you wouldn't be looking at this grill so I'll move on. I've had it for 3 years and I use it a lot, pretty much everyday from April - October. I bought the cover but don't really use it as when I'm done grilling, I'm done grilling and the grill cover is hot as hell so I don't put it on till the next day, or never, I'm lazy. The grates last 2 years, that's if you leave the grill outside all winter in Boston which I do. If you brought the grill inside during the winter it would probably last longer. New grates cost 35$ so what's the big deal. It gets really hot, really fast. Temperature control can be an issue till you get the hang of it, keep fighting the good fight and you'll get it, don't give up young grill master. Don't be shy with the top grate, you need to use it as all grill masters like myself know, not all food cooks at the same speed. After a while you can bake a cake in this bad boy. It will rust a little. Don't complain about that on Amazon like a sissy, you got a stove for 180$ that cooks awesome. Just replace the rusted bolts like a man and be grateful to be an American. Side burner works great too, get yourself a large cast iron skillet, because that's what a real grill master uses, don't be a whimp and use your wife's non stick flimsy pan,
You'll ruin it, get black propane crap all over it. Don't don't do it, she won't like it, you might have to sleep in a bed that your not accustomed to, alone, filled with regret.
Update: 4 years and it’s done..the button tub bowed out and the grates don’t fit anymore. We had a good run. Out to the curb she goes
