    I actually have 6.

    They are:

    - Brinkmann Trailmaster offset smoker

    - Brinkmann Gourmet charcoal dome smoker (was a company gift for 5 years of service)

    - Char Broil Deluxe Box Grill

    - Perfectglo PG50400S

    - Coleman table top grill

    - Landmann Northern Lights XT

    The PerfectGlo is a Chinese knock off. Kinda like Harbor Freight stuff where it's virtually the same as the brand name stuff but an "off brand" because it's the manufacturer of the brand name stuff copying the the brand name designs they make for the brand name. There was a dude rolling it out to the curb on trash day. I asked if he was pitching it. He said yeah, doesn't work. I asked if he wanted anything for it. He said no, just take it. So I threw it in the truck figuring it's at least worth a hunnert bucks in scrap stainless and brass! Well, a new side burner hose and a new valve later, works a dream! With the options it had, the MSRP was $349.99. The base grill was $229.99-$249.99. I think I've dropped $70 getting it back in working order again. Just gotta clean it now!

    Also, photographic evidence that I do actually cook on the Landmann. Some gratuitous food and fire shots too!

    You're just jealous 'cause the voices don't talk to you!
  • Weber - tried others, but always came back to Weber charcoal grilles.
    Been using them since mid 70's.

    Blast from the past, I no longer have that Chargriller, using a Weber kettle that I rescued from my brothers shed and a infrared gas grill, that never gets used. I've been itching to try something new and get back into smoking, I may have narrowed my decision down to this - http://greenmountaingrills.com/products/grills/daniel-boone-pellet-grill-wifi/

    My next grill will be a Traeger wood pellet rig.

    Steaks are also killer over a campfire. My Mexican pal only BBQ's over wood. I think because the temps are so high, your meat ends up really juicy. There's nothing like campfire grub.

    Used many high-end grills, gas and charcoal. The best bang for the buck is the Weber Smokey Joe, but its limited in its size. Honestly I have grilled the best steaks on a old 40+ year old hibachi. Was better than my brothers $3000 grill LOL.

    I currently have one those infrared deals, and it's pretty neat--no flare-ups with chicken or pork, but it cooks FAST so you have to adjust for it.

    Now that's what I'm talkin' about. Wood fired anything even ovens....all the best places for food use them. Italy, Brazil, Mexico...these places know food. One of these days I'll have one in the yard, pizza's/steaks/burgers over an open wood fire. Doesn't get any better than that gents.

    My grill doesn't have a smoking head but is does get HOT quickly.

    I am not a patient person when waiting for charcoal to reach the appropriate temp.

    I have a TEC Patio II infra-red grill purchased in 1998. It has two 18,500 BTU ceramic burners. I have refurbished the burners twice. I also have a portable Solaire infrared. The pictures below are stock pictures.

    A joint venture between Charbroil and TEC started the infra-red business for Charbroil. Lowe's was the retailer for the first product and the venture failed.

    My favorite grilling recipe (pork chops) is from Jacques Pepin which is in the Julia & Jacques Cooking At Home ©1999 book. It requires a hot temperature and one literally times the grilling in two minute segments. A no-fail recipe.
