Thanks for the info BBQ Grail. Let me add that the lights are not a determining factor, more of a curiosity due to not having much light on my deck.
Let me back up a little and start this differently. After checking out grills online and in stores, I'm set on the RED at Home Depot. I'm not looking at the Quantum or another brand, or another store. I'm definitely buying a Charbroil from Home Depot. But when going back to Home Depot to buy it, I noticed two different models. They had a 3 burner RED and some new tru-infrared models. They are very similar and most would not even know the difference. But the new model has much shallower troughs and a completely different firebox and burner arrangement. Completely different. I assume that's why the name was changed. It is not just some marketing gimmick. Looking at the Home Depot site, I think they are now calling them Gourmet instead of RED.
I can easily get the new model at any local Home Depot. However, the 4 burner RED is not carried anywhere around here. I would have to special order it and pay extra for shipping (unfortunately no free shipping for this!). So, I can get the new 4 burner Gourmet now for $499, or a 4 burner RED for approximately $580 in about 7 to 10 days. Hopefully I'm making sense!
I'm just looking for answers as to the performance of the new model. If its the same as the RED, I'll buy it tomorrow. If not, I'm ordering the RED. Perhaps this model is too new to compare to the RED models?
