Very happy with my biggest investment yet in a natural gas barbeque
This was the third and biggest investment in a grill I have ever made, no question. Four years ago, I'd replaced a store bought gas grill with one from Barbeques Galore. I had thought, given their reputation as barbeque experts, that by buying their in-house brand, my investment would be safe. It wasn't.

Steaks, chicken, pork chops, salmon filets, corn on the cobb, grilled veggies... I've cooked them all on this grill, and I have found I have far more control over heat levels than ever before. The built-in smoker adds a flavor to my meats I haven't enjoyed since my old Weber kettle from 15 years ago. The sear station seals in thick steaks, after which Weber's recommended indirect cooking does finish them off evenly. I had to make adjustments to my normal method of cooking steaks uncovered, but I cannot argue with the results. I am a reborn Weber fan.
By the way, I had Home Depot ship this grill to my home at an assigned day and timeframe, where I did the final assembly in my garage by myself (with one minor assist by my wife, getting it off the box's plastic platform) in less than an hour, and then simply rolled the unit out to my backyard and attached the gas hook-up. Weber's instructions were almost Apple-like in their simplicity, essentially foolproof.
