Well, my grill is fucked now. Have to buy a new one.
I am tired of my Charbroil grills not lasting like they should...some of which is admittingly my fault and others are they just aren't as good.
Guess I am going to have to splurge on the Weber now.
If you really want an awesome grill that lasts... go with the Weber Genesis. I got the Spirit because it was more affordable, but the Genesis is definitely better.
