Jim Gronwall I have a Fire Magic Echelon Series grill. No doubt, it is 2nd to none. What a great choice, with no regrets. Although I didn’t purchase from Grill & Patio, I accidently contacted them recently with questions (I meant to contact Fire Magic direct). They responded promptly and treated me as if I’d been a long term client. I’ll now utilize their services for all purchases and replacement parts. I’ll recommend them to any of my fellow barbeque fanatics. They’re a great company, with good people. Lloyd is a “class act”. I was hesitant to purchase a gas grill, as I was hooked on charcoal grilling. My monthly usage was 40 – 70 lbs. I never dreamed I would convert to gas. Now I cook outdoors approximately 5 days per week with my Fire Magic. I do use charcoal when smoking large quantities of fish or ribs (in my charcoal smoker), however I finish ribs with a final “wet mop” on my Fire Magic. I do use the smoking tray on my Echelon frequently, for most meats and poultry, with great results. The rotisserie motor & heavy duty spit can hold a huge cut of meat – with no stress to the components. This is one of the more impressive features to me. The interior light inside the hood of the grill makes cooking in low light completely hassle free. My grill has a three zone digital thermometer, and an instant read meat thermometer. What a great tool, as well. Besides the grill – my outdoor bar has all Fire Magic accessories. I’ve got their refrigerator (which gets colder than most others I’ve rated), bar caddy (with wine chiller), single side burner, and multiple stainless steel drawers and cabinet doors. I would recommend this product line to anyone.
