Hopefully to become a newbie soon. I have been researching all brands and it seems this forum is the most friendly and very active. I have read a lot about cracked fireboxes. Is this a major concern and does hit happen to most BGE. I've been a gasser for 20 years and the thought of changing is a little trying but I seem to be up to for a change. As I said I have had the same Weber gas grill for 20 years. It's like getting rid of a close friend.
