    I got this from the guy I work for on Saturday's from April thru November for the last 11 year's. It needed new burner's after 4 year's of being on a waterfront deck. I've had it so long I've replaced the burner's twice ; immediately when I got it and last year, about $200 All together. It's gas but for free I can live with it ! It took 3 of us to lift it on the deck , you can see where the bolt on end piece's bent up a little . Wonder if I could put a mild lift on ito_O 20200201_113827.jpg

    That's a nice grill even if it is profane. I'd cook on it!

    It need's an external cleaning , the cover had a tear in it then rain water filled the drip tray and overflowed as u can see . It sear's and has a rotisserie thing I've never used , but the best part; Free :) No , it didn't come with the bottle !! LOL Forgot to mention it's a JennAir .

    Questionable pic but I have a Green Mountain Grill Daniel Boone model - a pellet grill. A smoker/grill combo that is direct competitor to a Traeger.

    I do all my grilling on this thing. It sears well enough as it can heat up to 500 degrees. I was worried at first that it would go through pellets like crazy. It starts to at 420+ degree F temps, but you don't need to hold it that hot for too long. At <400 degrees it is efficient. I don't see it being anymore of a PITA than gas.

    I like the flavor that comes with the smokiness. It makes the best ribs. Also I can control temps and it has temperature probes that I can monitor via app. So it's great for slow cooking. I can stick a big roast on it at 260 degrees and let it cook while I'm working on my X. Every once in a while I can check my phone or set an alert when the internal temp reaches 120 degrees and I need to flip it, for example.

    People say "ohh hurr durr you cook with a WiFi grill you aren't a real cook" but you still have to know what you are doing or you are gonna mess it up. Plus, most of it is in the preparation. This to me functions about like a gas grill but with the added bonus of being able to "bake" stuff as well.

    My wife got me a Traeger for Christmas this year, and I'm loving it. I cook breakfast for the family on it on Saturday mornings. Love the Smoke flavor, and versatility. I still have my gas grill, but haven't used it since I got the Traeger.

    At home: Cheapo Weber gas grill that we got as a housewarming gift. Does the job just fine, and low maintenance.

    At the family cabin up in Tahoe: OG Weber charcoal grill. A bit of a struggle if you don’t plan appropriately, but frickin nailed it the last couple of times for that nice charcoal flavor.
