Comment:
You have to close the lid in order to have enough heat to cook your food. Closing the lid makes this an oven and your baking you're meat, not grilling it. The burners on this item don't get hot enough to sear or char the meat. The sear station doesn't even get hot enough. Don't even think about trying to blacken some poblanos to remove the skin. I hate this oven and wish I never bought it. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with it now but thankfully I'll only use it during the hot Texas summer when it's too hot to stand over my charcoal grill that does get hot enough.

Comment:
After 25 years, the old Weber had served us well. It was time for a new one, and we couldn't be more pleased. The construction and quality of materials has been a pleasant plus. <br /><br />I recommend the use of the full length Weber cover. It has served us well through the first winter with no apparent weather wear. We are also finding the natural gas hook up to be well worth the slightly higher extra cost.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
