Hesitating : Stainless steel grill vs cast iron?

Need your advice for a gas bbq . I have the choice between stainless steel grill or cast iron? Please comments so I can do the right choice

  1. I don't have any experience with cast iron grill grates, if that is what you are referring to. What I have seen at the big box stored are grates that are rather rough and thin or porcelain coated. And the grills are on the low end of the budget. Rust and chipping come to mind. My Ducane (by Twin Eagles) has solid SS rods. Here is a link where the merits of both have been discussed before. Hopefully it helps.
