I have been researching for a new grill. I know Weber is a great brand but I just cannot justify the cost. I keep hearing how Char Broil, Brinkman, etc. and other cheaper brands are trash. But I am looking to replace a Char Broil that we've been using without issue for the last 9 years. I have replaced the burners and heat plate. If that's trash, how long are these Webers lasting? What is the life expectancy?
It is time for a new heat plate again and I was thinking of updating my home unit and sending this one (with new heat plate) up to the cabin where we currently only have a charcoal grill.
Here is the new Char Broil I am looking at. http://www.lowes.com/pd_503219-82210-463449914_1z0wekx+1z0yfmt+1z140vp__?productId=50086050&Ns=p_product_qty_sales_dollar|1&pl=1¤tURL=%3FNs%3Dp_product_qty_sales_dollar%7C1%26page%3D1&facetInfo=Yes|Char-Broil
