Some people love propane, while others love their charcoal. I love both fuels.....as long as it's fueling a Weber! During this lovely June day in Minnesota I had my Weber one touch gold grilling some large pork loins while my spirit gas grill took care of the veggies. I grew up seeing Weber charcoal and gas grills in our yard. After I got married, my Dad handed down his 1990 Weber Genesis Jr to me. It was 13 years old at the time. It lasted me another 10+ years before the burners finally gave out! You don't see quality like that much anymore. But you see it with all the products Weber produces.
