Don't buy the Sonoma SGR27LP from Costco
I purchased the Costco Sonoma SGR27LP. I'm usually pleased with the Costco price quality equation and will purchase items from Costco with little research because of the long history of satisfaction I have with Costco products. This one is different.
The problem is the grill has low BTU's for it's size. It's even worse if you convert it to natural gas because natural gas burns at a lower temperature than propane. Then to make matters even worse, there is a 3 inch gap that vents all along the back of the grill. If you are burning propane and preheat the grill for twenty to thirty minutes, you will be hard pressed to get the temperature of the grill over 500 degrees. This make searing tuna or anything else difficult.
The good news is the grill is well made, stainless steel and comes with the full force of the Costco return policy. If you don't like it, take it back. That's why I love Costco so much and will continue to shop there, but I'll do more research on their barbecues before purchasing one there again.
