Where to Buy
 

The inexpensive Brinkmann 810-2410-SB ranks below several more expensive Weber grills in a comparison test, but outperforms several grills that cost significantly more. Its durability is also a question mark, but it gets very good scores for cooking at high temperatures and indirect cooking, and one expert notes that despite its "low-quality material and lightweight construction," the 810-2410-SB offers lots of versatility for the price. Some users complain that the grill parts were dented, scratched, warped or otherwise damaged when the grill arrived, even though the box they came in was still sometimes in good shape.

Still, the Brinkmann 810-2410-SB is feature-laden for its price, with four stainless-steel burners, a side burner, and a warming rack. It includes a cart with a flip-out accessory rack; there's even a bottle opener. A similar but somewhat more basic Brinkmann grill, the 810-3420-W, is available at Walmart.com. If you're willing to spend more, the three-burner Weber Spirit E-310 (*Est. $500) doesn't have as many extra features as the Brinkmann grill, but it does come with a reputation for durability.

We found professional evaluations of the Brinkmann 810-2410-SB on ConsumerReports.org, About.com, and Good Housekeeping. User comments at Walmart.com address overall performance and potential problems with long-term use.

In his review of the Brinkmann 810-2410-S, the About.com guide to barbecues and grilling describes it as a "full-feature gas grill at a discount price" offering "lots of versatility in your cooking." However, he notes that it probably won't hold up over the long term because of its "reliance on low quality material and lightweight construction."
