Submitter’s comments: Awesome grills. Not so awesome site.
First of all, there is a splash page with annoying music and flash. When I visit a page, I want in right away. I shouldn’t have to click “Enter.”
The colors are horrible for contrast, as in too much contrast. The background throughout the site is all black and the text is white. It hurts to look at it.
The navigation is not that great. Some links load PDF files without warning. It’s like the black hole of grill sites.
Grilling should be about outdoors and family fun, not ultimate blackness with somber music and text that burns your eyes.
I’m reminded of the movie “Spinal Tap” when I think about how much more black the site can be. The answer is NONE. NONE MORE BLACK.
Let’s just say they made a change for the worse. Good grill, though.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: The real home page scrolls horizontally forever on my system. I couldn’t get the newly released Snagit 11 to record the screen correctly, so you’ll just have to take my word for it. Or you can try this link to an MP4 file that shows the scrolling (your browser will need the QuickTime plugin).
