I also use one of those $25 (now closer to $35 I think) mini-Webers that are rectangular and have the flip-up legs. Nice little unit, inexpensive, and work reasonably well. However, after two seasons of use, it is now getting rusty and starting to get difficult to open and close the vents, etc. Also, the grill is *always* too close to the fire., and it is a bit bulky.

I think the big advantage of the Pyromid (and part of the cost justification) is that it is heavy gauge stainless steel. I have seen these units, and they really are nifty. I wish I could talk myself into spending the $100 on one. (funny, though, I just talked myself into spending $500 on shocks and $550 on tires for the Syncro)

Stuart's post actually reminded me that my birthday is coming up, so I added the Pyromid to my wish list (along with a carpet kit, dash cover, Hella lights, etc. for the Syncro) :-)

I definitely see the advantage of the Pyromid over the Weber, no doubt about that. However, my (round) Weber is now going on it's seventh year of being abused, and showing little sign of wear. And my grill is not close to the charcoal at all, unless I go nuts and heat up 10 pounds of charcoal, which is always a possibility after the rig is stopped and the beer is unstopped. Anyway, my Weber is suiting me fine, but I too have a gleam in my eye for something like a Pyromid.
