Ok, so I bought a grill on sale last year and it’s OK, but the grease fires are getting on my nerves. Until now I had always used the grills with briquits and I’m guessing they catch/hold the grease, preventing flare-ups. My wife will kill me, but I want to buy a better grill. She always uses foil in the grill, which prevents flare-ups, but I think is ridiculous, unless I’m wrapping something like corn.
Keep in mind that regular maintenance, i.e. cleaning the grease pan, is not likely to happen, until the kids are in college. Between the activities, the pool, etc., there’s just no time! As an example, I wanted a self-defrosting or frost-free freezer 6 years, but the wife wanted to save the $50 and get the manual defrost. Now I can barely fit her head into the freezer.
Anyway, is there any grill in the $300 range that is reliable and not prone to flare-ups? Is it possible I'm not doing something correctly?
