Ok I figured it out...(made a decision)probably havent figured it outAfter much research and some ciphering, I decided that I didnt want to abandon the really nice stainless brinkman (not an ECB but an expensive EECB- $179.00) that I got for Christmas last year.
The main problem it had was the heating element sucked.
I decided to go with an afterburner, conversion to natural gas. I have a stub for my grill in the DOCA (designated outdoor cooking area ((for you acronym lovers)) that I will use to power my unit.
Thanks for the help, Ill let you all know how it works out.
