Cookware 1

Ok, we've gotten down to 3 grills to choose from-the CHAR-BROIL RED ($450) vs the WEBER GENESIS E 320($700-we were hoping to spend less) vs the WEBER SPIRIT E-310 ($ 499).

We were set to get the Spirit E-310 until we saw the most recent Consumer Reports rating, where it was not even listed(and the E-210 only received a 68 rating). We've always heard good things about Webers, but when we saw that the Char-Broil received an 81 rating (out of a possible 100, with the highest score being an 86 which was received by the Genesis), we began thinking in that direction.

Any thoughts or recommendations?

Is the Genesis good enough to warrant a $200 price difference?

There were 2 Char Broils in the store- both Char-Broil Reds, but with a $150 difference. Does anyone know the difference? The people at the the store did not, nor did the brochure.

The grill will be used for 2 people mostly, but up to 15 or so for summertime barbeques. Nothing fance-just hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, meats, fish etc.

Sorry for the long post, and thanks for the help.
