Ya I think they need to get to 900-1100 degrees. I don't eat steak all the time so for sure needs to be a hybrid as conventional seems better for everything but beef... :eek:bama:

No direct experience with infrared. But my neighbor had one and hated it and went back to gas. I dont recall his reasons why, but he is a guy that grills very often.

Ya reviews seem fine when you're in this other galaxy price range. I'm 95% buying it because it should be with the house that will eventually be up for sale.

Using a chimney method to get to 1,000*?

I can see 700* using lump charcoal but 1,000* is tough. Probably obtainable if you use a chimney method like Alton Brown did in one of his videos.
