Anyone tried one of the cheaper Webers?




We have the Spirit E210 on the floor at work. Solid unit other than the porcelain flavorizer bars and cooking grates. If you upgrade to SS then you'll have a good little unit.

So how do you go about getting the upgrade parts? Looks like a decent grill, if cheap. I really wanted a 3 burner that was aligned back to front, but I can't afford one like that. Odd that this model appears to only be at smaller, independent hardware stores.

You can get replacement parts through your dealer, or directly from Weber. I would just run the factory parts until they fail, then replace them with the upgrades.

Yea, the big box stores usually sell on price only, so you won't normally find them there. The "associates" would say I have this kEwL stainless one from China for way less!!!

Now that I think about it, the one on our floor is actually the larger Spirit E-310. In propane, we sell it for $569.00 CDN. No idea what the 210 retails for, or what they would be in your neck of the woods. Wild guess - $450 maybe?

You can still get quality grills made in North America, but it will be tough to find one under $800.



Alas, the kind of news one hates to hear.
I have a friend shopping for a bbq right now and since he started, i've got the bug to look around a bit myself. The sacrifice in quality for cheaper costs hurts.

I really like those Napoleans, lots of great accessories, well built, but nothing less than $800 from at least one of the local shops around here that sells them.

Hey Nick,

Anyone down there carry the Broil King line?

Good value, decent quality (WAY better than anything I've seen from off shore), and built in North America. They range from $269 to $1000.

There are a couple of dealers for Broil King, but they want a small fortune for them.

What about Brinkmann? I saw a nice looking one at WallyWorld (Walmart) tonight. Problem is that it must only be sold at Walmart as Brinkman doesn't show it on their site. They do show parts for it, but no details about the grill. It was the Brinkmann Pro Series 7541 for $298.


Here is the Aussie for those that are reading, but not wanting to search...

It sounds like the Brinkmann is worse than the Aussie!

I've seen that top 10 undre $500 before, but the ones that I can get locally are at the $500 mark (68% more than I want to spend, and 86% more than the Aussie.)

Maybe someone here wants to buy me a new grill?

Well Nick, I think you are coming to the realization that there is no free lunch. To get a decent grill, in size you've been looking at, is going to cost you more than $300.

So, you have 3 choices.

You can get the big import grill that you're drooling over for $300, but will fall apart in a couple of years.

OR for $300, you can get a higher quality grill (Broil King Monarch 20 for example) that will be WAY smaller with no features, but will last much longer.

Or, bite the bullit and stretch to $500.

I am starting to think that I need to stretch this a little bit, but the grills are so small still... I mean, the cheapo Coleman I have is 11 years old, cost a couple hundred bucks, is still solid (just want something nicer and bigger) but it is bigger than the top ranked "under $500" grills and has served me well...

HMMMMM.... Why can't these decisions be easier?
