BBQ, Smoking, & Grilling

All-in-one OR separate?

bloodboy | Jul 18, 201811:32 PM     1

I'm putting the finishing touches on cookware for my niece and I was thinking about getting her grilling equipment.

My question is do you feel that it is better to get separate products for smoking, grilling, and doing other things or is it better to get a product that can do them all very well?

I try to only buy made in USA products and I've recently found out that Weber isn't made in the USA any longer. That was my first instinct until I did more research. I was thinking about this.

If all-in-one option is best then:
Primo Oval
^ although I'm not sure which model is best..?

If separate models for different things then:
get the smallest Hasty-Bake or Original PK AND the smallest primo oval for smoking

alternative:
I read another thread here where a poster commented that Weber is an exception to the USA made search because although they are made in China, their customer service is outstanding so they are still worth supporting.
^ I've read that Primo Oval customer service is supposedly very good too though..

Thoughts on everything above?
