Greetings y’all!!
Thought I would get a good grill, so I’m here to learn... and make mistakes.
Coming off of a propane grill, just never got hot enough to sear. Considering a Traeger Pellet, but not sure; heard those don’t get that hot for searing.

Good to be here.

Greetings from Middle TN. Look into a Weber Kettle. No problem searing with one.

Welcome!!!

Interesting that a propane grill will not get hot enough to sear. My weber Genesis will exceed 500F if I let it pre-heat for about 10-15 minutes.

Can't go wrong with a kettle. The bigger ones can be configured to smoke as well!!

I assume you mean Orange County CA..but if you mean Orange County FL, I am also in Southern Orange.

Welcome in any case.

Yep, can't go wrong with a Weber kettle, very versatile cooking machine. Whatever you decide please post a pic, we love pics, and welcome to the forum.

Welcome, I got a Masterbuilt Gravity 560 about a month ago. Can sear at 700 and gets up to temp in about 14 minutes. If you’re looking at pellets even though it’s charcoal I’d suggest you look into the Gravity’s.

and I’m in Riverside, so howdy neighbor.
