Debating on this or a traeger now that the roadshow is at my local costco and my 15 year old natural gas president's choice bbq is starting to show its age and burns alot of the food (definitely not the beers and forgetting about steaks)... Very hard decision may try the traeger as I need a smoker anyways...

The Costco I went to only had NG version. This is similar to the one at Lowe's E-330 version (PORCELAIN-ENAMELLED, CAST-IRON COOKING GRATES $1249) versus Costco CE-330 (7MM DIAMETER SOLID STAINLESS STEEL ROD COOKING GRATES)

Looks like the suggested price on this from Weber is $1399. So at $999 from Costco this isn't a bad deal at all. I was looking at buying a Napoleon but the ones I'm looking at range from $1300-$1600.

I had a Napoleon NG bbq before I bought the Genesis last year. I hated to get rid of the Napoleon, but the new house I moved into didn't have a NG hookup anywhere near where I wanted the BBQ. Anyway, the Napoleon had a lot more bells and whistles than the Weber, but the Weber just seems a little more heavy duty. I also found the 'wave' cooking grids on the Napoleon a little more of a hassle to clean, but I'm just nitpicking. Both are great though.

speaking of Costco's return policy.. I purchased a Nexxgrill bar b q from them approx 4 years ago and the drip tray under the burners is rusted, one of the wheels broke off and the grills have rusted.

I know it technically doesn't fall under the 90-day return policy but can I really drag in a rusted and dirty bar b q and get a credit/money back? That is, if I can bear the shame of pushing this thing into my local costco.

Surprisingly the NG is the same price as propane model in-store. Even on Costco.ca a typical surcharge of $50 is added. I had my eye on the Genesis for years. Propane burns hotter than NG but with the Sear Station I’m sure it’ll be just fine. I love the convenience of NG, no more propane lines/waiting at Costco and maintaining two tanks. Ironically my 20lb tank expires May 1st, so timing on this is near perfect. My Weber Q has served me well over the years. My father had Napoleon and switched to Weber, it just did not hold up over the years for the price paid. Manufacturing may be different now though, that’s from over 5 years ago and a lot changes. I know Weber has their fair share of issues also, but their customer service under warranty is good.

Looks like the Genesis rotisserie design blocks the side burner if that’s your thing. Lots of valid complaints on that accessory. I love the side burner and stainless steel grates over cast iron. I would prefer the door model and 4 main burners (5 total) but at this price I can’t resist. Entertaining this summer will be so much better now. Thanks OP for sharing!!

Lol one of em was left by a neighbour at the end of their driveway who was moving. All it needed was a regulator and had the porcelain coated heavy iron grates (those were a $150 extra cost item when new)
The other I gave to a family member when I upgraded to a used stainless Spirit. It needed a regulator about 3 months after I picked it up.
Seems like their regulators fail before other stuff.

Costco Thorncliffe Park had some last week. Part of their rotating businesses.

Why would you do this? This is gross abuse of the return policy. Because you could get away with this doesn't mean you should.

If you are considering a Traeger, suggest you look at a Green Mountain grill - Daniel Boone. Better value per price point.
