Help choosing BBQ--new to grilling

jyllebeanMay 27, 2012

We are looking for a decent quality low-frills budget (ideally $200-300) BBQ. We have never owned a grill before. We just bought a new home with a free standings NG hookup that we plan to use. I would also like to have the option to use LP for emergency purposes. I'm thinking the best way to acheive this is to buy a LP BBQ that we can convert to NG. Does this sound ok?

A few I'm looking at:

Char Broil Quantum Infrared

Master Forge from Lowe's

Dyna Glo smart space from Walmart

Or maybe splurging for the Weber Spirit 210 from Home Depot, although this is a little more than I'd like to spend.

Any suggestions/tips? Does this way of using NG sound ok? Thanks.

Weber hands down. It is worthwhile to save until you are ready. Don't compromise.

I am the grill chef in the house. We have a high priced build-in gas grill in the back yard, but I still miss the old Weber Genesis.

We are looking for gas grill that will get lots of use year round. Will have NG hookup. Looking for something in the $1,000-$1,500 range. Would like a grill with lots of flexibility: rotiserrie, smoker etc. Anyone have a favorite?
