I am a proud cheap-son-of-a-groan and try to stretch out my investments in tools, stuff, whatever. I do this by learning how things work, maintaining them, and repairing them if it is cost effective to do so. I think I have milked my $99 Sunbeam propane grill to it's limits and want to get a new grill. I have replaced the burner, grill and lavarock a couple times but am looking for a slightly different design. My current burner allows jets of propane to shoot past the lavarock briquettes and scorch my meat. It didn't used to do this - I think it is a sign the burner element has opened up via rust or other decomposition and changed it from a small blue flame to a longer blue/yellow flame. I think I'd rather get a grill that uses some method of shielding the meat from direct flame...I vaguely recall seeing grills that have a baffle or plate over the burner element? I haven't even looked att he store yet, just thinking about it following a ruined steak the other night. I don't want an expensive unit....I know some folks buy stainless steel and all that. I don't nee that. Anybody buy a grill lately with some advice?
