I bought it from Fuego on sale last month and had a family shipped to me for $150. I think when I was looking originally, there were 2 places in canada that sells it. Wayfair and one other in BC...
in the end, it was about $750 (BBQ and 2 shelf) including exchange and shipping.

Google something like: temp to kill e coli

So maybe a second at the temp you are talking about.

What really sold me was the fact they provide a 10 year warranty on basically everything, outside of normal wear and tear. I've also read that Weber has good customer service and maintenance seems pretty easy, in terms of how things are laid out and able to be removed/replaced. For this price, I personally would only look at Napoleon or Weber. Broil Kings are good too, but it seems their burners tend to rust and need to be replaced sooner from what I read. Anyways, good luck!
I suspect one reason is because of the high heat the BK burners can go. Weber reduced the BTU's and change box design and also added sear burner to some models. From what I read on some BK models it can be difficult to even get a low enough temperature for indirect heat cooking. BK owners please speak up if that is inncorect.

This is very interesting. Are you saying that Weber lowered the maximum heat inside the grill, added sear burners, to allow for the lower grade steel, to prevent rusting?

I don't know about allowing for lower SS.

Weber's recently switched to a lower grade stainless steel. Went from 430 to 304. The 304 is much better, less prone to rust, but more expensive.

Right, but I have no idea if lowering the BTU's was so that they could lower the quality of steel. My interpretation of article or opinion I read (can't recall where I read it, maybe on Reddit lol) was of higher heat causing problems.

Interesting. I wouldn't mind seeing that article.

Broil King

Thank you


If I was getting a napoleon I would go with the prestige lineup.

I read they added the sear burner because they removed the option from the first run of Genesis ii models, which angered lots of people. I've also seen reviews the sear burner gets the temp up to 700-800.

I believe the prestige 500 is made in Canada. Between the 3 you listed I would go the weber, but you can likely get the prestige 500 for close to 1200 cad by calling around and bargaining with a few people. I got my napoleon from a guy i know at CAS and he gave me a great discount.
