Do the propane suppliers in your area sell higher quality units. They do here. Take a good hard look at the more expensive, better quality grills. You may decide that they are worth the extra $ in the long run.

our propane suppliers do not.  Guess I"ll have to look at the high end stuff at the big box retailers or my local hardware store.

I've had similar problem with my grills. I did my research and have decided to go Weber. They have a 10 yr warranty and around here parts are available,not generic but true replacements. They are more $$ but if it lasts 10 yrs or more it will be worth it. Getting mine in a few months when I get up the cash.

Best grill I've ever owned was a weber. We went to gas grills & like so every two or three years parts needed. My wife on a whim recently bought a Char Broil barrel type with gas on one side a charcoal on the other with a warming plate. I really like it but I know probably in a few years it'll be rust but not the good kind of rust :D

rdehli ....I bought a high end Vermont Castings natural gas BBQ about 8 years ago and have never had a problem. It is stainless steel with  ss baffles over the burners and heavy ceramic coated grates. It is 5 burner with a rear  searing/rotisserie burner and a side burner for potted stuff. I love it and the fact it does not need propane tanks is perfect. Only drawback was cost. $2200. However it has been problem free and we use it a lot. So far, spread over 8 years that is less than $300 a year and I can see it lasting many more years yet. The igniter batteries are still original.....Dave

I have a Kenmore stainless grill on natural gas. Bought in 2006 and this will be it's last year as the bowl under the burners is rotting out bad. The bowl is enamel coated steel. I am not sure what grill to buy next.

It should not be a problem to buy  new burners.

The burners are stainless. It is the main bottom half of the grill that is rotting all the way across the back where the burners mount.

The Grill Pro that we have just lost it's burners after 6 years. The porcelain covered cast iron grills were a joke and I got tired of chewing pieces of porcelain in my food so I made a stainless grill. Typed in the name and model of the grill and found new stainless burners for $23.00 bucks each on Amazon. Beats the price of a new grill and I like the way this one cooks. Order goes in tomorrow.

Webber from an Independant dealer. They can get more stainless stuff inside than the HD version
OR
Napoleon, they are made in Canada, so you have to buy Metric Meat cuts, but it cooks well. :poke:
