OMG! I'm getting rid of my stove...pronto!
For my money, it's perfect in every way. It's built to last a lifetime, with the proper maintenance of course, and it looks AND cooks great!
Spend the money, you will be glad you did, I promise you.
Also, do not buy it without getting the cover that fits it.
I'm 53 so this will more than likely be the last charcoal grill I will purchase...ever! Hope to be alive and using it 50 years from now.
