I received this grill as a Father's Day gift in 2007. Putting it together took some time but I was very pleased with the end result. I have grilled 3-4 times a week spring through fall ever since. I've had to maintain it but it does a great job. Holds heat well, good searing power and the cast iron grates are excellent. It has survived many Minnesota winters stored covered outdoors. Performance Great Grill Versatility Cooks hot as a broiler style grill should for a good sear. I wouldn't smoke, braise or slow cook with this. Ease of Use Starts up every time without exception. Ease of Cleaning It takes a lot of work keeping this looking new. Not easy to clean. Needs cleaning after every use. Durability This grill stands up, but only if maintained. I replaced the grates and heat tents 2 years ago. Today I painted the heat tents as they were rusty again, painted the spot where the propane tank rests and removed the fire box drip tray as it was turning to rust dust. I replace the drip tray with aluminum roasting pans. 6+ years old, stored covered outside in Minnesota. Still looks and works great. Design As I've seen with other grills the side burner is not used often. Drip tray/pan should be of better material.
