I have had the same $89 BBQ since we moved into our house 11 years ago. In order to save a buck, I have rebuilt it 2x. It was taking almost 90 minutes to do a tri-tip so it was time for a rebuild or a new Q. My wonderful wife talked me into chucking it and getting a new one.
It's not fancy, but it is so much better than my last one. It has big knobs so it must be good.
It took me longer to unpack than the guy at Lowes said it was going to take to build.
The boy helping his dad build a BBQ. That's American.
