I think this are both produced by Char Broil. I have seen both in person, but not side by side, and I believe they are made out of the same thickness metal. They both appear to be about the same, with various pluses and minuses. The Hondo has a lot of reports of the firebox warping and bending. Highland - $268 Hondo - $149 Anyone know if these are indeed made out of the same thickness steel?
