    I have tried several gas grills they all never make it past two years never tried any over $225

    Does anyone make one that’s worth a crap that will last that’s worth the money ?

    I already own a Weber charcoal but sometimes it would be nice to have the speed of the gas

    I have a Charbroil Commercial, all stainless, that I have used year round for at least 8 years. But I take good care of it. Kept in the garage and have replaced the burners twice and cooking grates once.
    Use it all winter in the garage.
    Think I paid $400, but like I said that has been about 8 years ago.

    Weber ALSO makes a great line of gas grills that I think are worth checking out. I have the same dilema…they only last a few years at a time. My current one is at 4 years, I cover it, clean it, etc…and it is STILL rusting out. My next gasser is going to be a Weber gas grill for sure. Like many others, I don’t have room to store a gas grill in my garage, so it’s a piece of equipment that has a stately place out on the patio/deck.

    We use the Char‑broil Commercial TRU‑Infrared Grill with 2 Burners. It does not flare up when I grill chicken. I once bought a grill every three years. I am going on six years and Lowes have it at about the same price as I bought mine $249.

    I don’t know if it is the best gas grill, but I do have a 3 burner weber gas grill and like it alot. Still requires a little maintenance and cleaning, but the design makes cleaning easier and after 4-5 years the grates are not peeling and falling apart. I also have seen replacement parts at places like Mills Fleet & Farm, so I am pretty sure it will last near indefinately

    I have a MHP that must be 15 years old, I know I have replaced the burners at least 6 times. Sits outside uncovered on my deck. No steel so no rust.

    I have worn out a few gas grills, most just rust away.

    I have went back to charcoal and a chimney style starter. Four pieces of newspaper and you are running…Eyeballing a “oklahoma” grill from Lowes, seems like a heavy gauge of steel.

    I would like a Traeger, or a pellet type, but they are spendy….

    I bought a Phoenix gas grill 7 years ago and really like it. Only thing I have done to it is clean the pan underneath the grate. I too was tired of buying a new grill every two years. Worth the money in my opinion and worth checking out.

    ditto on Charbroil Commercial, all stainless, have had for ten years.

    Taking good care of things is not my forte spend its life on deck does have cover.
    Had to replace burners twice but they are guarantee for life their customer service is great.

    Had my Weber for 8 years or so, still in great shape.

    I have a sunbeam that is over 25 yrs old. Been married for 30 and its the only grill that I have ever owned ( except for a few small ones ). The only thing that I have replaced is the front glass. It has always lived in the garage and still going strong.

    I have a Char Broil 3 in 1 roaster smoker grill that allows you to do it all. I keep it in the garage when not in use, so can’t say how one would hold up to weather. I’ve been very pleased with it.

    Honestly, I got rid of my last gas grill a couple years ago and went to a Weber Kettle. Once you get dialed in, it is easy and food tastes way better on it.

    Ive owned alot of grills and smokers over the years. Something you may consider is a pellet grill but you have to worry about electricity and the price point. You cant beat food off the charoal grill.

    I’ve had a Weber spirit gas grill for about 10 years. Leave it on the deck, covered and have only had to replace the “flavor bars”.

    How are all of these grills rusting out? Are they covered and still rusting?

    I have a Weber Genesis that is made of stainless steel and has been stored outside, but with a Weber cover on it for about 10 years and it practically looks as good as the day I bought it. If you are buying a new $225 grill every 2 years or so then it might be worth paying the extra to get a good one that will last many times that.

    Speaking from my personal experience they rust from the inside out…… I had a sears kenmore for about 6 years . (basically a charbroil). It was always covered but the main grates just deteriorated away and replacements were spendy. Also the flavor bars were replaced several times and most recently the burners rusted out. Also the igniter didn’t work more often than it did. I was going to resurrect it until my wife bought me the Weber for fathers day. Glad she did, new grates, burners, ignitor and flavor bars for the Kenmore were about the same $ as the grill was new…………… plus when I did throw it out I got a little rough with it and learned that other parts were rusted too so my resurrection would have probably only lasted 1 or 2 years.
