Well time to vent some frustration here...

They placed the order for my grill on 8/22 and told me it would be 1-2 weeks. I called 2 weeks later and the person I spoke with said that my grill was not in yet there is no way that I was told 1-2 weeks because weber always takes 2-3 weeks to deliver... Called back today and spoke with the lady who sold me the grill (tomorrow will b e 3 weeks and I still haven't heard anything).. she said that she did indeed tell me 1-2 weeks because that is how long it usually takes. She then proceeded to tell me that my grill had actually came in on the 27th of august, and they sold it to someone else. Funny thing considering I had already paid them $200 down on it...

she is going to talk to the owner and find out how they are going to fix the situation b/c I am pretty frustrated.

Wow that would have gotten me pretty upset. If they don't do something special for ya I would want my money back and take my business elsewhere.

Simple fix. Call the credit card company to dispute the charges and go somewhere else.

Well I heard from the grill place today.

Based on the amount of time it would take to re-order another genesis I am changing to a different grill that is on its way from Illinois right now.

I am going with the Weber Sumit S470, The four burner with the side burner, stainless steel smoker box with dedicated burner, rotisserie with dedicated infrared burner, and a dedicated sear burner.

They are selling me the grill for a discount ($300 off) and throwing in a free grill cover (another $50)

I have really been second guessing my purchase of the weber genesis for the last couple of weeks anyway... wondering if I should have went with a summit instead.

My girlfriend would not let me get the summit before, but now that it is at a discount its fair game.

So I am a little bummed that I am forking over more cash than I originally wanted to spend, but in the long run I think I might have always wished I would have purchased the summit.

Should have it sometime before tuesday.

Pics to follow!

At least they gave you something for your troubles.

So I thought it would be cool to buy a griddle for my weber. I was going to get this for the Genesis:
http://store.weber.com/Items/Accessories/Gas/Detail.aspx?pid=1254

Thought it would be neat for making lots of pancakes in the morning after a gathering, or even philly cheese steaks with bell peppers, jalapeno's and onions.

Unfortunately I can not find a griddle for the summit. I called Weber and they said they don't carry such a product. What gives?

I have a Weber Summit and went to the local barbecue shop (Barbecues Galore) and bought a no name cast iron grill and it works great. One word of caution the grill does get very hot and can be touchy to keep the temperature down.

I have the same gas grill as well. I'll have to get one of those cast iron grills. Great idea!

got the summit 2 days ago... finally got around to getting it set up today! What an amazing looking grill! I will get some propane tomorrow and cook some grub ASAP.

Pictures to come.
