Anyone know where I can pick up a stainless steel gas grill for a reasonable price aside from Home Depot?

Patrick,

I have seen them at K-Mart and Ace Hardware. I have also seen gas grills at Cost-U-Less and Price Smart.

Actually, I have seen quite a few gas grills around the island.

Thus far, I have been unable to find a high-quality charcoal grill :S

Home Depot is pretty low on grills right now. Price Smart and Cost U Less have some pretty good grills. KMart has a few and I just went to ACE Hardware which had one. I just picked up the last charcoal grill at ACE because I did not feel like driving to Home Depot. Like yourself I need to pick up a gas grill as well.

Patrick: Get the cheapest one you can find that has the features you want or need. Then buy a cover! They don't last more than a couple of years in the air anyway.

I love my side burner so I can cook outside and not heat up the kitchen! And when the power is out, I am golden.

Is Antilles Gas the only place on STT to refill your propane tanks? Just wondering.

I will second what East Ender said. I learned the hard way and purchased a $1,000 grill when I got here and less then two years later most of the guts needed replacing. Even covered it is a tough enviornment.
I just purchased a Weber Charcoal Grill and have not had one in years. The charcoal now is amazing, light it and ten minutes later it is ready to rock and roll. Only paid $80 for it so if I need to replace it every year that is no sweat.
Still might get a gas grill but I am going to see how this one does for the next couple of months.

Being that regular grills last only a couple of years or so, how long do you think the stianless steel ones will?

Patrick: I wouldn't buy anything stainless steel-. There are many different levels of quality and only the surgical quality is rust-free!! And even at that, not completely, in the VI! 😉 Besides, it is the grill's innards that will rust away first. Trust me. Some things you just have to replace on a regular basis around here. If it isn't the sun and the salt air, then it is the power surges and outages. Repeat after me: "It's just stuff."

Teresa: Is that the place in Sub Base? I think, since Home Depot's Blue Rhino program closed down, that is the only place to fill your tank.

Thanks EE. That's exactly what I was thinking but wasn't really sure. I guess we'll just end up getting one of those small black gas grills with a side burner.

EE: Both St Thomas Gas and Antilles Gas are in SB, across from Floor Depot.
