sbtech I guess I’m a little confused, how is your Lynx BBQ grill not searing? Being 20 years old, maybe it has some issues, but I thought those were pretty high end grills? Most pellet grills that are able to sear that I know of, all you to remove a piece of the drip that allows for direct access to the flame. If money is no issue I would look at Memphis Grills or a Yoder YS640. The Memphis is stainless, the Yoder is built like a tank. One could buy a less expensive grill such a Green Mountain, Traeger, Pit Boss etc and buy some grill grates to put in and probably get a sear as well. I’m a firm believer that each type of grill, be it charcoal, gas, pellet, kamado style, etc all serve there purpose, some do one thing really well, other a couple things really well, but I don’t believe there is one grill out there does everything great.
