    Webers aren't bad, I'd stay away from those Chinese grills at Lowes...they look OK, but are really thin and cheaply made.
    Yeah, make sure WHATEVER you buy is made from heavy gauge metal, and seals tight.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with a Weber. You are just a little limited with one.

    chargriller???? I have a weber in the shed that I havent used in forever as the chargriller gives me more options for grilling. As Joneser stated watch out for thin guaged chit, and cheaply made crap as these thing must withstand some pretty wild temp differences.

    I am sure that I would go the HB rout if I had the cash when I was lookin to buy a grill, no doubt. And I would even know who to get it from!

    I have got a chargriller with sfb that i have smoked on several times but i didnt think it made a very good charcoal grill so i think ill keep it for what ive used it for just small cooks.I was really looking to stay under $400 just wondering what was out there would like to have a hasty bake but would prolly hafto sleep in it if i spent that much on a grill.Thanks for all the suggestions.

    I like my Weber Silver. It is it is a little limited on size when grilling for a group of friends.

My opinion is that you will spend $200 on a grill to find out that you bought $2 worth of melted down 1982 toyota, and some almost reusable wheels and casters.

    I love my Weber it's been cranking out killer food since 1989 However I have a bad case of the I wants and the obsession of that is a Tejas grill http://www.tejassmokers.com/grill.htm
    Be kind to me, it's not my fault I'm a "PORK-A-HOLIC"!!

    #1, the crank mechanism on their demos doesn't even work right half the time because it is so flimsy.
    #2, If I'm not mistaken, the charcoal grates are very thin sheet metal with inadequate perforations. they would rust out in a year or so for most frequent users.

    IMHO, the Chargriller is a much better option, but even it will not hold up well to frequent use.

    Other than a Weber, pretty much any charcoal grill under $400 is going to be semi disposable.

    How often to you plan on using the grill?
