I'll throw in the obligatory all you need is a big green egg.

The outside of my Char Grill became extra crispy. Yes, it actually caught fire on the outside. Two of the knobs actually melted off and I guess I forgot to drain several years' worth of animal fat because the frame burned too. I had no idea that stuff was actually combustible. So I left it on the curb for the scrap scroungers last fall. I don't miss it and don't plan on replacing it.

Meanwhile if you want to talk about something truly useless then let's talk about the George Foreman grill. My wife just bought her turd - that is to say she bought the third of these pieces of $#!t - and she bought the BIG one this time. You can't take them apart to wash them and the barely fit into a standard sink with draining rack. When it fell from atop the pile in the rack and hit the floor it broke like the toy it is. I was not upset at all because we have two other kinds of electric grills taking up space in our crammed kitchen closet but wifey is mad. Not my problem. That it jumped to its death all on its own is proof that there IS a god.

Funny Kwak, ours caught fire last fall as well, for the same reasons. It was a Brinkman and had lasted 8 years. Also we had a Foreman roughly 8 years ago and it broke much the same way, I was delighted for the same reasons and my wife was also mad. I do have to say I like the way they cook, just a pain to store/clean.

We're on year eight with our gas grill, I've replaced much of the innards to keep it running and we use it at least once a week throughout the year except when it's below 0*F or buried in snow.
It cracks me up you didn't realize fat burns ;)
We'll probably replace it in a few years. I've got the rotisserie burner on the back that does chickens and roasts quite nicely. We'll always have a grill.

I currently have a char-griller duo with a firebox attached to make the charcoal side a smoker. The propane side is a true POS. I plan to remove it and mount scrap piece of SS tabletop in its place as a food prep table. The smoker side makes for a decent little smoker. I'm giving it to the neighbor.

I'm hoping our next place has NG. Then I will buy a nice NG grill and never have to buy propane again. Oh and a large smoker as well.

Yes, charlbroil. Love it. Never flames up which makes getting meat like chicken crispy difficult. Cooks fast and mine has a self cleaning option. Got it at Lowes. :
