    I've never cooked on one, but I have seen them up close in a store and was not impressed. The fit and finish was not the best and the metal seemed kind of thin. I really didn't care for the shape of the top and body. The cast iron grate was very thin compared to other grills.
    I'm sure it could be modded to seal it better and cook better, but I'm not sure it would be worth it. For about $30 less you can buy a Weber Silver 22.5" or for $20 more you could buy a Weber Gold 22.5".

    I saw these at Home Depot a couple-three years ago. I was interested. I liked the height vs. Weber height. The lighting system and grill inserts were intriguing too. Didn't need another grill at the time so I passed.

    I looked them up online when I was ready for another grill. Checked user reviews. Probly 90+% positive. Most of 'em loved it. The negs were that it was a PIA to assemble, and that the handles were pretty fragile. One drop to the patio or deck caused shattering. Then almost impossible to replace. Mostly great reviews on how well it cooked. The few negs on cookin' probly didn't know how to cook and blamed the grill.

    I wouldn't be afraid to try one for the right price. I personally don't need all the custom grill inserts; just more to spend money on. But they are nice if that's what you want. I considered the STOK, but ended up with this:

    I'm really happy with this one.
