Spring’s a coming. Time to fire up the old charcoal or gas grill and toss some steaks on the grill.
There was a time I considered the use of anything but a Webber Charcoal Grill as sacrilege, but you can’t deny the convenience of a gas grill. It fires up instantly and the flame is instantly adjustable.
I must clarify the above statement.
Sometimes it fires up instantly and sometimes the flame is adjustable.
I have had my share of gas grills that bit the dust after a single season. Those automatic starters simply didn’t start – and these were expensive, stainless steel grills.
Three years ago, after I toted another expensive dead gas grill to the curb for trash pickup, I decided never again to buy a high dollar gas grill. I would buy a cheap one and if it only lasted one season, that would do. I went to Wal-Mart looking for a deal and they had a three-burner Expert Grill on sale for $50. I bought it.
I’m now in my 3rd year with my inexpensive Expert Grill and every single time I click the on-switch, the flames ignite.
Recently, however, the burner plates that cover the flames rusted out and caved in. I was going to head to Wal-Mart and buy another grill (the regular retail price is $96). But I went on-line and found replacement burner plates for about $15. My grill is back up and running with no end in sight.
The Expert Grills are well made, they’re solid, they’re cheap and they work. A Three Burner grill will cook six chicken halves and at least 15 burgers at a time. It’s plenty big for most occasions, but they make larger ones if need be.
Consider one next time your expensive grill goes kaput!
