Any recommendations? I am looking for something decent in size, with good quality racks (both top and bottom). Side burner isn't necessary. I can only seem to find reviews of top-end expensive ones. Kenmore looked ok in Sears, but a fellow shopper advised me against them.
This is a gift for my brother - one of his wants is even cooking - thoughts on Infrared?

Your best bet is a Weber Genesis or Spirit series. I know it's out of your price range but a Weber will last 20 years or more IF taken care of.
I purchased a Genesis 3 weeks ago and had a hard time with the price. Once I got it home and started putting it together I was amazed at the quality of materials used and how everything went together, it fit like a glove.
The cookbox is 1/4" cast alum, hood is porcelin or SS and has 1/4" cast alum end caps, SS burners. You can get SS grates or porcelin enameled cast iron grates. I have never seen a grill that cooks as even as this and NO flare-ups.
I don't mean to sound sarcastic and I certainly don't mean to be putting you down but, $300 these days is going to get you a POS and your brother will be replaceing it in a couple of years from now.
You know the old saying, you get what you pay for. Take a look at the other grills, look at what they are constructed of, then look at Weber, you'll see what I mean. Here's a good website with information you're looking for. http://www.bbqsource-forums.com/invb...hp?showforum=7
