Barbeques versus the George Foreman grill

I know there is probably no comparison here. But, I live in an apt with a tiny backyard and Im really uncomfortable with bringing a barbeque into the back area. Neighbor has this huge tree that hangs down. Anyhoo, does anyone own one of those grills and if you do how do you like it?

  • I used to have a large GF grill. There is absolutely no comparison to a real grill. I really don't think you can do ribs, chicken, corn on the cob, etc. with the GF grill. Plus after a while, it stops getting as hot as when you originally got it. It makes nasty grilled cheese, BTW.

  • I have an older George Foreman and I love it! We've had it for 8 years and it still works like it did when it was new and I use it about once every two weeks, more often in the summer. I use it for steak, chicken, and pork chops. The flavor and everything is different than an outdoor bbq, but I like it in the summer because it's fast and doesn't heat up the house like the oven does. I would like to upgrade to the one with removable plates though because it is kind of a pain to clean it.

  • We use a George Foreman grill in the winter time, its great for burgers and bonelss chicken breast...we've even done steaks and london broil, but I have to say its a giant bitch to clean. It does, IMO, make better grilled chicken than our gas grill.
