any recommendations? i mean brand and/or model.
my old one is very old and is begging for a green box burial. my wife got me a gift certificate to lowes for my birthday with the intent that i buy a new grill.
o yeah...price. i'm not looking to spend a lot here. lets think in the low end range.
lowes has perfect flame, jenn-air, char-broil, weber (this is the one i'm favoring right now) (they have only one model of it i think), and bbq grillware.
theres 3 people in my household but my youngest son is heading off to college come fall so 2 will be the norm.

Read this and then consider a smoker instead of a gas grill.

Some folks don't care for the taste of smoked foods but
if you're a fan of bar-b-que you'll never regret getting
a smoker like this one Smiley

If your dead set on Gas, then I think Vermont Castings makes a very nice, sturdy gas grill that isn't too expensive.

Personally, I'll take charcoal or a smoker.

I like to use both. We keep a cheap gas grill for when the wife and I just want a quick burger and a nice charcoal grill for more quality cookings. I also have a electric smoker (Wal-Mart $59) that cooks awesome as long as you are not in a hurry.

Vermont Castings. I've had mine a few years and its simple and efficient. I have the 36,000BTU model. Nothing but a grill. Parts are replaceable, but have not needed any. Prior grills I've owned were spot welded and parts were not replaceable.  My grill even fell down a hill during a storm, and when righted, lit right up. Very strurdy.

jenn-air is the grill, best grill I have ever owned but it cost a few c-notes ( http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=18852-40307-720-0163&lpage=none ), another grill I bought from lowes about 5 years ago was a Brinkmann stainless with the side burner and a cooler-sink on the other side if I remember it right it was 350.00 and mine is still in good shape and still being used..

is it true that stainless grills require a lot of cleaning? one of my wife's co-workers told her this.

not at all, I have sprayed mine down with a water hose to get some dust off the out side but the inside I have never cleaned mine and it stays out in the weather with no cover, just turn all the burners on and let it burn it self clean.... dont know what their talking about...
