Rich, this is the perfect grill, with everything you are looking for. Decent size, top notch build quality, one of the best warranties you will find, infrared rear burner for rotissing, one ceramic infrared main burner for steaks, optional charcoal tray, and 16 guage 304 stainless burners. (These are the thickest walled stainless burners you will find.)

Only one problem - $1k won't buy it. You'll need to stretch another $400 to $500. Skip the ceramic infrared burner, and the stretch should only be a couple of hundred. (And well worth the couple of hundred)

I've had mine for over 5 years, and the only thing I've replaced was the ignitor. It sits exposed, with NO cover year round to direct sun, rain, wind and snow. Temps below zero to above 90.

Here is the Weber line-up. Excellent product as well. The only issue I have with the current Summit series is that they went to a porcelain pot. It makes no sense, as the lower Genesis line has the cast aluminum pot which will last longer. [scratches head]

Geez, Shawn. Why do you have to be so helpful? I was kind of enjoying Rich's apoplexy.

I also want to point out that upgradeitis has apparently seeped from audio to cooking appliances. Thanks a lot.

Shawn--

Thanks so much. Holy cow! That is quite a grill. I actually found that model by going to that older thread link Tom posted, but wasn't sure what to make of it. How did you come to be such an expert on all of this?

And pay no heed to Tom. He's simply jealous because I live in Austin. (So, you coming to the ACL Festival this year? Talk about someone having apoplexy! )

Hmmmm, audio upgrade or grill upgrade? Anyone on here in the grill distribution business and want to cut a deal with a fellow Axiomite?

Rich

Yeah yeah yeah Mr. Funny Guy. Hey, remember Mark, your room sucks worse than mine!

And Tom, there's only one way to cure that.... (well, other than more barley wine)

Hey guys, got a question. Is it worth the extra dough for stainless steel? I had thought it was just an appearance thing, but what do you guys think?

From what I've learned with my grill purchase, stainless steel isn't a bad thing, but most of the grills are made with cheap 430 grade stainless steel. The better stuff is 304 grade, so either way, make sure that if you do get a grill with stainless steel, get the better grade or skip stainless steel altogether.

Well, it's more a question if I drop the extra $100US on stainless on the Weber E310 or not.
