Looking to replace my old gas grill that

the bottom has already burned out after less than 7 yrs of owning it.

Im looking at either a Weber Spirit or Nepolean Rogue. Both are 3 burner and seem to be of equal quality.

Obviously Weber has a great reputation but kinda like the looks and a cpl of the features of the Rogue

Anyone have amy thoughts on the two, more the Rogue than the Spirit.

I too have been looking at Napolean and Weber. I would take the Rogue over the Spirit, nicer features. Now the Rogue 425 XT vs. The Weber Genesis II 335, both in the $1K range, is a tough choice. Weber has a 10 year Warranty vs Rogues 15 years. Weber has a Stainless Steel cooking Grate vs Porcelain coated Cast Iron. But that Rougue IR Sear burner is pretty sweet vs Weber's small extra burner for searing temps.
I'm not sure you could go wrong with either, but I'm leaning toward the Napolean Rogue in all Stainless...JJ

I really like the look of the napoleon phantom series. It has stainless steel grates as well.

I struggled between a Weber and Napoleon last year. I ended up getting a discontinued Triumph and have no regrets. Their newer models look to be even better.

I'm very happy with the Napoleon.

They are nice. I just wonder what the Black Finish is made of and how durable it will be...JJ

So ended up picking up a Napoleon RXT425 this morning. 3 burner plus side burner, built in smoke box. Ended up payijg about $130 less than the original price. They had it on display for $100 less than actual cost plus the additional 5% off for using my Lowes card.

Already did the burn in, so now just figure out what to make on it tonite.
