BBQ grill recommendations? Wifey getting me one for my B-Day. :)

Looking for a smaller portable*ish* grill. Propane, since Hank Hill tells me it's the way to go.

I have had a couple now and they have been total rubbish after only a few years at best.

Can be free standing or maybe table top? Under $300 would be nice but willing to pay for a better unit.

Looking for something along these lines:

Table top but I would probably buy the stand/cover etc: http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-CGG-...524467&sr=1-61

Another table top one (again I would buy the stand etc): http://www.amazon.com/Weber-566002-2...27946&sr=1-367

Free standing and maxing the budget (I also think I can get this one locally): http://www.amazon.com/Weber-426001-3...525317&sr=1-39

Or this? Good reviews for the most part but looks cheap (and is cheap $$) And not sure about the infrared stuff?

Thanks guys!! B-Day is wednesday so i need to order today/tomorrow.

I have a Weber Q grill, for the last 4 or 5 years. Great grill. Very happy. I have a standing version, but I'm sure its the same as the one you referenced. The grill surface is now starting to flake a little though, so next summer I probably will replace the metal grill tops (there are 2 pieces).

Go for the Weber, they make great Grilles and great parts support. I have a really old one that has been through all the elements here in Chicago without a cover for years. I replaced the Grilles, Flavor Bars and Side Table on it last year. It's like new again for a fraction of the cost of a New one.

Yup, that's just cooking outside.
I prefer wood and charcoal.

Charcoal is actually the way to go.
Weber
"Smokey Joe Gold" or "Charcoal Go-Anywhere"
http://www.weber.com/explore/grills/...harcoal-series
and real charcoal, not those little square things.

Big Green Egg is awesome. Everything from searing steaks at 700+ to smoking ribs to baking...

+1 on the weber Q series. I've got the 100 and 200. They've both held up well over the last several years outside uncovered. The 200 is worth it for the extra grill space. I bought the 100 because it was $20 on craigslist and I couldnt resist.

Exactly, if you are going propane wouldn't it be easier to use the broiler in the gas stove?

Exactly again, you can add so much flavor burning the right fuels
