This grill is definitely the top of the line product. It is a great deal when you have downsized as the family got smaller. The burners are very powerful and thus justifies having only 2 of them. The top and sides are very durable and easy to clean. The only remorse I have is that you cannot fit a "universal rotisserie" kit on this model as the top won't come down and thus had to order the $89 one from the Weber web site which is quite expensive as compared to the $49 universal one. I also added 2 V-Smoker containers which I got at Home Depot for $9.99 each and filled them with moistened wood chips and the meat tasted just like it had been smoked in real charcoal Overall an awesome buy.

It's a Weber
From the time I opened the box I knew I wasn't assembling a typical grill. The quality is obvious from the get go. All the metal parts are not tin like but 1957 Chevy metal. The assembly went smooth as I did something new and followed the instructions. All the holes lined up and the machine grade nut and bolts let you know this grill is going to last. I was a bit skeptical about the wheels but they roll with little to no problems on my paver patio. This is the first grill that the flame level controls actually do more than full or low. My other concern was the size of the grilling surface. I have yet to wish it was bigger. I have been using it for several months and tonight was the first time for the side burner, again a control knob that works. The only issue is the tank hanger that lets you know the amount of gas in the tank is a little sketchy hanging the tank, however, it really really works and is worth the effort. The cover is nice but has me scratching my head as to why they are trying to make one size fits all, what's with the zippers? There has to be a better way!
If you are like me and live in a condo or have limited space and budget the Weber Spirit is the grill for you. It's a little higher priced than the Wally World grade but worth much much more and you will toss severally the others before this one starts to give you trouble. After all "It's a Weber"
