Can anyone recommend a good 3 burner gas grill at an economical price? And where did you get it?

Cook's Illustrated/Consumer Reports just reviewed gas grills and the Weber Genesis Silver A came in at number 1 - It is $350 - I don't know if that counts as economical.

I've got the Genesis Silver B and love it. Years ago my dad realized it was better to spend money on a quality grill than the cheap ones. The cheap ones were not lasting long at all, and did not cook as well. He loves his weber and bought me one last summer.

I have been happy with my Charbroil big easy 3 burner/ I think it was (and is on sale now) $249 with Side Burner and cast iron two-sided grate. The burner tents flips over to hold a smoker chip ouch too, altho I have not had much success yet smoking. I think I need to turn the burner lower.

I too am looking at a new grill, specifically the Weber Silver B or C. Does anyone have thoughts on the need for side burners?

I know a lot of people who have a side burner and use it once or twice and never again. At times I wish I had one to warm sauce and some things, but I am fine without it. The extra work space you get without having the burner is nice.
