The Bottom Line

This grill is loaded with features right down to a bottle opener mounted on the front. This grill plugs in to power the internal LED lights and has outlets in the back to let you plug in your radio for some music while grilling. At it's heart is a three burner, 45,000 BTU gas grill that has plenty of power and three position cooking grates which give you the ability to get down close to the fire, or position away for gentler heat. Despite all the features and extra that this grill is loaded with, the overall construction hasn't suffered. That makes this the perfect grill for the person who loves gadgets.

Guide Review - Fiesta Blue Ember 3-Burner - Discontinued

This grill has been discontinued. It is replaced by the Fiesta Blue Ember 3-Burner Model #FG50069-U409

Fiesta has been making gas grills in North America for years. Typically they have produced low priced grills of good quality without a lot of extras. This grill is considerably more money than and loaded with features, many of them rather unique. The three position cooking grates are similar to those used on Broilmaster grills. By turn them around and over you can change the distance between the burners and the cooking surface by a little more than two inches. Since there are three separate grates you can set up different cooking zones. Of course this could also be accomplished adjusting the burners.

This grill plugs in to power the internal LED grill light and to provide power to the rotisserie motor. Mounted on the back of the grill is a pair of sockets that will let you plug in your radio or anything else you need to power while grilling. In addition to this you also get an internal smoker box, full function side burner and rotisserie system, chill-able side table compartment, and a bottle opener.

This is a good sized grill and well made. All stainless steel parts are 304 stainless steel. The assembly is very good. While the fire box is pretty basic all those features add a lot to this grill, making it the ultimate grill gadget.

This grill has been very popular and accessories have been hard to find (as has the grill). This may account for why customer service from Fiesta has been slow.

Fiesta Blue Ember Barbecue, Member Skill.Bill

I have had this barbecue for over 7 years and the instant start still works every time. I use it all year round including cooking 20 pound plus turkeys at Christmas and Thanksgiving and the built in Led light is great as the days get shorter. All my friends and relatives keep asking me where I got this barbecue as they are impressed as much as I am.
