This grill is great - hands down, cannot beat it for the price. I was down to this grill or a Perfect Flame model from Lowes for $100 more. The only real difference was that the PF grill did not have the side-burner, and instead placed the sear burner where the side-burner would have been. Since I don't use the side-burner, that is what I wanted - but I couldn't justify the extra $$ just to have a few extra inches of cooking space inside the firebox.
I bought this grill on sale for $299 in early July and can't stop using it. It is VERY solid and well-built, very easy to assemble (I did not have any issues with missing hardware like some of the other reviews stated, not sure why - everything needed was provided, and assembly took less than 2 hours).
The only gripe I have is with the universal rotisserie kit I bought from Wal-Mart. The kit said it fits upto 36" grills (which this grill is) - a previous reviewer said they were able to make it work, but I found it easier to return the Wal-Mart kit and buy the Perfect Flame 40" kit from Lowes - it installed perfectly on this grill in under 10 minutes.
I did buy a heavyweight 68" grill cover that works very well, I did however leave a pronged fork on the side shelf once - it rained a little and I have a couple of tiny rust spots where the fork sat. Other than the tiny rust spots (my fault) and the rotisserie problem, this grill is simply awesome. Warms fast, cooks well, (very) typical hot spots in the back of the firebox between heat shields. I noticed the price went back up, but if you can get it on sale, this grill is the best value out there in medium $$ range category.
