Weber needs to add flexibility to the choices above. We grill 2-3 times a week, a little less in the winter although we have a dedicated snow shovel on the grilling deck! It's been 18 months since this bad boy arrived. With over 40 years of gas grilling experience, I feel qualified to comment on this unit. So far reliability is top notch.
This grill does everything, and it does everything very well. It's easy to clean. Fires up every time (even at temperatures hovering near zero). Easy to switch gas tanks. Great readout on fuel level left in tank. In short, everything related to getting ready to grill is a breeze on the Summit E-670.
The grilling experience is perfect. From burgers to a $150 Prime Rib Roast on the spit, this grill handles it all. I've even learned to love grilled veggies...no kidding!
Whether it's direct or indirect heating, the Summit produces perfect results. The learning curve is minimal...you already know how to do most of this, you've just never had the flexibility to do it all on the same grill. The burner controls offer a wide range of heat from very low to 600-degree high...this is the key to getting just the right temperature to cook your entree.
You will not regret the money spent on this unit. We ordered online, and paid $2049 including tax & shipping in January of 2013.

The Weber Summit E670 - The King of All Gas Grills.
I previously owned a Weber traditional charcoal grill (25 years). I recently decided to upgrade to a gas grill for the first time ever. Based on prior experience using a Weber, I knew the quality and durability of the brand was second to none. So, even though I looked at a few other brands during the selection process, I liked the features and look of the Summit E670 model from the first time I saw it and read the overview on the Weber website. So, after an in depth review process across several brands, I purchased the Weber Summit E670.
This grill is "extremely" well built, weighing slightly less than 300 pounds (289). The assembly process was a breeze (I really took my time, reading instructions during the assembly process and it still only took me 1.5 hours from start to finish). After using the grill about 5-6 times so far, I have been completely blown away by its overall features and performance. I won't go through a long recap/review of all performance features, but make no mistake; this is a VERY, VERY impressive grill. See the below review...
The 6 burners provide a well-balanced heat source across the grill grates and the smoker is simply excellent. The lighted knobs and grill handle overhead lights are really nice for night grilling. The drip pan system works flawlessly and helps keep grease from running onto your deck or patio area. The Searing station feature is absolutely outstanding and works extremely well with all meat selections, but especially well with steaks and chicken breast. I have not used the rotisserie yet, but I do look forward to it - the hidden rotisserie motor compartment is a well designed - well thought out feature. I was initially considering the Weber E620 (buy the rotisserie motor and smoker separately to save money, but decided to go with the Weber E670 - so glad I did. I have been extremely happy with my decision and this grill.
Overall, the Weber E670 is an outstanding grill and therefore, I "highly" recommend it to "anyone" who wants to own a versatile grill, with features that surpass all other brands. Don't wait ... buy it NOW! This grill is of the highest level of quality. Yes, it is expensive, but the grill is of great value and will guarantee you a great ROI and, it will provide the setting for many memorable cookouts with family and friends for the next 25-30 years. Happy Grilling!
