I was very reluctant to spend $800+ for a grill. We just moved into a house which has a natural gas line and I wanted to be able to use that. None of the hardware stores in our area sold NG grills, nor would they put them together. I was expecting a nightmare putting this thing together. That couldn't have been further from the truth. Just follow the step by step instructions and you'll be grilling your first steak in a couple of hours.
My only issue didn't relate to the grill, but the connection from my house. I had to visit a hardware store to get a 3/8" to 1/2" adapter for the gas connection. Once all that was taken care of, I fired it up full blast and it got up to 500 degrees in less than 10 minutes. I cooked my first steak on this grill tonight and the outcome was perfect.
If you're like me and debating the steep price, you get what you pay for in terms of quality of the materials and perfect food perparation. I highly recommend this grill, if you're looking for durability and quality.
The box is very heavy and requires freight delivery, but Amazon has the best companies handling that. Delivery couldn't have gone any smoother, and we got the grill in less than 3 days.
