They banned my Weber - need outdoor electric grill recommendation

Formerly Woodside | Jun 13, 2006 03:48 PM

Last night I had to dismantle my 22 inch Weber Performer grill. After two years, the insurance company of my co-op decided that all grills on our building roof-deck area were a fire hazard and had to be removed (despite presence of fire proof mats, fire-blankets, extinguisher and bucket of water at all times). We never used the propane attachment.

Looks like my friend in is about to inherit the grill – having previously inherited my Weber Genesis Silver C when I moved here.

I’ve been looking for an electric alternative. Chef’s Catalogue has a DeLonghi model described as a “heavy-duty grill integrates an enameled cast iron grate over a 1,500-watt heating element”. Or is the George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Grill a viable alternative? Or should I just accept that I’ll only be grilling when I go to visit my friends.
