I have had the Tradition series, Holland grille for 11 years. If you are expecting to sear meat on this grille you will be disappointed. This is a great grille if you stick to what it does well. You can cook anything on this grille but if you have a picture in your mind that a steak must have grille marks and cook in 20 you will be disappointed. Steaks are incredible cooked on the Holland grille but on the other hand a basic hot dog will take 45 minutes from the time you light it up to completion. On a cold, windy day, double the time. Nothing is fast with this grill. Tr-tip roast, seafood/fish, beer butt chicken, whole turkey, grilled veggies, ribs and burgers are always perfect.Bacon cooked on the Holland is by FAR, the best I have ever eaten. Even a medium well steak remains juicy and tender. The negatives are speed, lack of high temp and I've replaced the ignitor 4 times. I bought a Fuego gas grille to sear things but I'll always have a Holland.
