    Hi... I'm in the market for a new gasser myself. I thought the Prestige 500 rsib or the prestige prsib might fit the bill. So I know this thread is a bit old but for those of you willing, can you report on how this grill is holding up after all this time?

    Thx. JPP

      Still loving mine after almost two years and two of my friends have bought the same model within the past year and have no complaints with them.

      T-bone Are they as easy to clean as the Weber’s?

      Dadof3Illinois sorry I missed this. The interior is as easy as the Weber to clean. The exterior takes more work because of it being all stainless vs. my Weber that was powder coated.

    So, JPP did ya pop on it? Inquiring minds.


      Hi FireMan ...

      I've been very preoccupied with tons of other things so this is the first time back to the pit for SOME time... unfortunately here in the northeast, supply issues with the napoleon caused me to go with the Blaze four burner, not to mention the establishment I made the purchase from hauled off my old grill for free. There's no side sear station but it handles searing a steak, no sweat.

      I'm fairly happy as this thing makes restaurant quality steaks a burgers a snap... but I do miss the IR sear side burner..

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

    The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
