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.CedarStorm1975ParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 1:41 amPost count: 2009
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.huntersafeJune 13, 2017 at 1:45 amPost count: 363kenhumpParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 1:52 amPost count: 12769IaCraigParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 2:38 amPost count: 1709
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 indefinatelywolflb2ParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 2:47 amPost count: 351Brad PhillipsParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 2:49 amPost count: 3187
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….jesslabParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 11:35 amPost count: 169ccb1ParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 11:42 amPost count: 65iowavfParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 12:01 pmPost count: 3575

Had my Weber for 8 years or so, still in great shape.critterxxParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 12:56 pmPost count: 29jnrbroncParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 1:00 pmPost count: 242cowboyParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 1:00 pmPost count: 423

We use the CharÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½broil Commercial TRUÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½Infrared 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.
Infrared is amazing.m sauerParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 2:10 pmPost count: 1285moose07ParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 2:20 pmPost count: 81JefroParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 2:49 pmPost count: 1978TrapCycloneParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 4:20 pmPost count: 2552
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.walleye jimParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 4:45 pmPost count: 311IaCraigParticipantJune 13, 2017 at 6:31 pmPost count: 1709

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?
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.
