I think it cost me $20 to fill two 20 lb tanks.

I'm a noob and was wondering why it was okay for the grids to rainbow as opposed to the flav-r wave
Jun 10th, 2018 10:23 pm
honestly, it's all okay to be rainbowy, just someone did not want, so we were discussing steps to remedy it, but after cooking for a while, it's no big deal. Just because we were helping them in their desired goal doesn't mean it's an important thing.

BK is made in canada, Weber Spirit is made in China, but weber's got a good reputation & warranty. difficult to say. but you do pay a premium on weber's typically.
LEX is made in China and i've seen a fair amount of reviews talking about rust in the long long term (like multiple years in), but my friend has it and is happy. The Broil King Sovereign is a similar price but made in Canada.

It has 4 burners, side and rear burners and backlit knobs for $1199 at Lowe’s. Any thoughts or recommendation on this particular model or Napoleon in general?

Depending on the material composition, the grills may avoid the discoloration due to high heat. The heat shield is right on top of the flame, it's virtually impossible to avoid the discoloration. The sovereign grills have not discoloured so far. I don't expect them to because they are non magnetic stainless steel which should resist the heat adequately. I have had stainless steel grills on a previous BBQ that was magnetic and discoloured. It even developed a thin layer of rust, not the loose rust. In spite of this, it was very durable. Each time I used the grill, I would take a paper and rub down the grill with oil before turning on the heat.

After a lot of research, I decided to purchase the Napoleon LEX 485 4 burner grill with rear and side burners over the Weber as I really wanted the searing feature and the rear burner and backlit knobs were a nice plus. Most stores are sold out in store and online, however The Bay still carried these online AND had a FRIENDS 10% off promo code which expired tonight. Plus I got ebates.ca 5% cash back. The grill came to $1079 + tax less the ebates.ca rebate with free shipping.Sypsy wrote: ↑Jun 10th, 2018 10:25 pmLEX is made in China and i've seen a fair amount of reviews talking about rust in the long long term (like multiple years in), but my friend has it and is happy.

Thanks, I was originally thinking burners, but 3 will be enough.Sypsy wrote: ↑Jun 8th, 2018 2:09 pmDefine "medium"? 3 burners?
Anyway. Broil King Soverign series. Comes in "medium" and XL. With or without a rotisserie & side burner. Made in Canada. All stainless steel grates. Last few pages of this have multiple users considering and buying it.

Char Broil uses tin foil construction on their BBQs. I bought one six years ago. Everything has through wall failures.9394 wrote: ↑Jun 12th, 2018 9:11 amLowes has 20% off select BBQ brands today. What's the consensus on Char-Broil, specifically this one: https://www.lowes.ca/gas-bbq-grills/cha ... 02505.html
On sale for $520.

Thanks, I think I'm going to stick with @Sypsy suggestion and go with the BK Sovereign 20. It's only $200 more and for what seems to be built much better.
