    What price range are you looking at B? I know Okie will suggest a Hasty Bake - and they are some good equipment. Tell us some of the features you want and we'll try to get you some choices

    The Hasty Bake is sweet!

    I do have to give a plug for the weber one-touch-silver. Cheap and easy to use......even for a pellet punk!

    Anyway you go, you do know that it's the cook, not the pit that makes a great meal........oh.....and hamburger helper.

    Plenty of choices, good luck, Stinson.

    Joe is right (Pigcicles). I am very confident that the Hasty Bake Legacy is one of the finest charcoal grills on the market as well as one of the best values in a charcoal grill.

    The Suburban if you will only be cooking for 3 or 4 people at a time.

    The customer support and availability of parts is unparalleled as well.

    If you can justify spending the $800-$1000 price, you will never regret buying one.

    You can easily smoke, grill or bake with one and ease of use and temp control cannot be matched with anything else out there that I am aware of.

    On the other hand, for the money, a Weber kettle is quite a value as well. You would not have the longevity, or utility of the Hasty Bake, but then you would spend a lot less $.

    If you would like to visit with me further about the HB, drop me a PM and I'll shoot you my phone info.

    Oh, and don't forget about the 5% TQJ discount.

    Just to play Devils advocate, you could get a new Weber 22.5 silver OT every 5 years for the next 40 years, and spend $800-1000 that way. I have had my current one for 10 years now, use it over 100 days a year, and haven't needed to replace anything. Parts are available at just about every Home Depot, and most hardware stores worth their salt will at least carry generic grates and stuff.

    Get a Weber. IMO its the best bang for the buck and you can do just about anything with them.

    You can drive a Chevy for a lot less $ that a Cadillac, but they sure do sell a lot of Cadillacs.

    I have Webers as well and do not dispute that they are great little grills, but I use my Hasty Bake better than 90% of the time.

    There really is no comparison between the two other than the fact that they both use charcoal.

    Reminded me of...
    I can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking my head up a bull's ***, but I'd rather take a butcher's word for it.
    From Tommy Boy...

    Webers aren't bad, I'd stay away from those Chinese grills at Lowes...they look OK, but are really thin and cheaply made.
