Nexgrill from home depot

Are these ok grills? Planning to buy my 1st grill and the prices are really low. Most grills are 600 and many well into 1000+, but found nexgrill at 300 or less. They also have the porcelain coated cast iron that I like instead of steel.

And do home depot generally have the best value/prices?

These are cheap made in China grills. They don't even come with a one year warranty, it's only 90 days. Broil King comes with a 2/5/10year/lifetime warranty depending on the part. My guess is it'll be junk in a couple of years. Much cheaper in the long run to get a good quality BBQ. My $300 Broil King was almost 10 years old and still in good condition. I just sold it for $100 on Kijiji. The equivalent BK BBQ today is $579.

Broilmate made by Broil King for HD.
Look for an old school all cast aluminium cookbox, both top and bottom - holds heat in just like on the high end broil king , weber and Napoleon bbqs. There's a reason why old school BBQs had cast aluminum cookboxes

A lot of cheapie chinese BBQ only have stainless steel for visual/ decorative purposes. The structural pieces like the lower cookbox are just plain painted folded sheet steel . When it rusts thru in a couple of years, the BBQ is done, even though the stainless is still nice and shiny
