On Broil King, note that Weber distributes Broil King in the U.S. and Broil King distributes Weber in Canada. They have confidence in the products.

Jim, thanks for doing all the research on this; your enthusiasm sold me. Do you use the standard regulator or the low pressure valve when hooked to your quick connect on your Escape? Also, does the grill have a snap lock or similar mechanism to secure the lid when transporting? Thanks much for this and all other, very informative posts!

I use the low pressure valve I got from Dickinson when I ordered. There is no locking mechanism for the lid, but I keep the cover that came with it on, and have never had any issue with that. If you want to send me a PM or email, I could give you the list and costs of what I ordered.

Jim,

I had a look at the Dickinson website and was left with a question you might be able to help with...

Their product line includes the spitfire and the small sea-b-que which look quite similar -- close to the same size, same shape, same burner. But the spitfire costs quite a bit more. In fact it's more expensive than all the other options, and the website doesn't make it obvious why.

Why did you opt for the spitfire over one of the other options?

Thanks for the insight.

Doug, I opted for it due to size and features, stainless steel grills, and cover, as well as reviews I read online, mostly at sailing forums. That, and the fact it is substantially cheaper than the advertised price.

The list on that Dickinson Marine Spitfire 180 is now $436.56 at their website.
Would you like to negotiate for me, Jim??
My Weber is not getting hot ( in my opinion ). I've cleaned the burner, made sure the holes are open, cleaned the spider screen...

While in Chilliwack a couple weeks ago picking up our 19, we made a side trip to the Dickinson store in Surrey. As Jim mentioned, the Spitfire 180 grill can be purchased directly from Dickinson for significantly less than the price posted on the website. In our case it was a little more than about 1/2 the price.
