    Very nice. You going to try BBQ fish? IMO there is nothing better.

    OMGWTFBBQ!

    I feel that I would be remiss if I hadn't said that.

    It's nice! Enjoy it! Even us mostly-vegetarians love grills. There's nothing like grill-roasted sweet potatoes or beets, and it's a great way to get crisp, non-soggy asparagus as well. :) And of course the fish, as mentioned above. :)

    Nice grill! I have a Weber that's over 10 years old and still going strong. Needless to say, Weber makes the best quality grills out there..

    Nice,

    I got a beautiful weber charcoal grill for fathers day. I've had a gas grill for so long, the I'm really enjoying charcoal.

    Congrats on your new girll

    Thanks all.

    I'm going to try to cook up some nice Salmon on a cedar plank once I get the recipe from my Dad. Its his specialty.

    And I also agree about the Veggies. I cooked up some green beans (olive oil, salt, pepper) in a tin foil pan on the top tray and grilled up some red/yellow/green peppers with zucchini and onions in a grilling wok to go with the steaks.

    My wife was in charge of the veggie prep.

    Perfect summer meals.

    Thanks all and happy BBQing!

    Hold on there. That's a gas grill and not a BBQ. You don't BBQ on a gas grill.

    These Weber grills look really nice, but they're expensive.

    My parents bought a cheap-ish 300$ BBQ. It produces 58 000 BTU, which is about the same as 600$ Webers, but it is very poorly built. The handles to move the grill are screwed on a thin metal plate, which bends. It was a nightmare to assemble, the holes for the screws weren't properly aligned.

    So I guess the next one they buy will be a Weber :) (Or at the very least, when I buy a grill, it will be one)

    there is a Weber app for iOS, it should be free for every Weber owner, anyway I paid and it's a good reference.
    Enjoy!

    Fixed that. If there is one thing I've learned since moving to NC, that is BBQ is a noun not a verb. :D

    Ha ha....the propane vs charcoal makes me think of Hank Hill.


    I've had the grill since friday night and have made lunch and dinner prepared on the grill each day since. Haven't burned one piece of meat yet....such a constant heat and no flare-ups at all.

    Th quality of the BBQ is very good. Heavy metals and solid construction. I've had two other $300 BBQs that looked good but broke and died so easily. Yeah, this grill was $700 but I am expecting it to last 5-10yrs. And yes, its North American made and you can tell with the quality.

    And my wife is loving that I've been doing the cooking.

    Tonight was Steak Frites - marinated Steak, home cut fries (mix sweet potatoes and regular) and grilled green beans.

    And a miller Chill Lime to go with it.

    As I said earlier....life is very good.

    You just made me very hungry.....

    I can't tell the difference between propane, and charcoal BBQ. I think it's the cook's excuse.

    I love my natural gas Weber BBQ. I bought a small one for the trailer and I make breakfast, lunch and dinner on it when camping. At christmas, I do the turkey on the BBQ to free up room in the kitchen and to keep the heat in the house down. Weber is awesome!! Enjoy.:D

    this is the portable propane:

    Nice grill! Hope you also have a nice cover for it. If properly maintained, this thing should serve you well for many years.

    I am an avid griller not BBQ'er. BBQ and grilling are two seperate schools of cooking. BBQ will take hours to cook and usually has some smoke, while grilling takes much less time to cook. I don't even think you could concider a gas grill a true instrument of BBQ.

    Sorry about the rant, I just get upset when things get mixed up.

    You should try grilling up some skirt steak! It is delicious.

    I forgot to mention that grilling with charcoal is more of an art form and takes a little bit more skill and practice.
