Getting married in the spring of 2016, the one thing I asked to be put on our registry was a new grill. I plan on buying a nicer grill so I'm allowing guests to put funds towards my grill. I was hoping to get a lil info on which fuel type/ grill model people recommend. I'm debating between an Original Kettle Premium 26 in. Charcoal Grill/ Kamado joe/ and potentially some form of pellet grill. Im not an extreme griller by any means but do tend to grill alot mainly (steaks, burgers/dogs. & chicken) Nothing fancy. Ive been grilling on charcoal for the last year and love it compared to propane (which is why I dont want one). But lets get to the point... My thoughts (correct me if I'm wrong) Original Kettle Premium 26 in. Charcoal Grill Pros -price cheapest -Kingsford charcoal (stock up when on sale) cheapest fuel -lots of readily available parts and add-ons Cons -May not last as long as I'd like. KAMADO JOE Pros -Built to last -could integrate into a grilling station -holds temp the best Cons -more expensive grill -must use more expensive lump charcoal Pellet grill (traeger or rec tec or ????) Pros -cleaner to use -easier/faster to use (wife can use) -electric (I do have access to receptacle in grill area) (is there a large increase in electric bill) -can have better taste if smoked CONS -As expensive as kamado grills -expensive pellets? most expensive fuel source? -doesnt sear as well -may not last long with moving parts Basically, I'm looking for a grill around $1000 that will last for a long time without rusting out or breaking. But also uses a fuel source that is not super expensive (I grill a few times a week in the summer even winter).
