Perfect Flame 4-Burner Gas Grill Model #SLG2007B

Lowe's

The Bottom Line

This is a big, powerful grill. With a total cooking area well over 700 square inches and 52,000 BTUs of heat output you get a grill that won't have any trouble heating up and cooking. The combination of cast aluminum and stainless steel body help hold down the cost, brining this grill in around $300USD. The side burner is a nice feature. This grill does not include a rotisserie burner or rotisserie system. The stainless steel of this grill is low quality and should have been left off.

Pros

  • High BTU output for the size
  • Heavy Porcelain Coated Cooking Grates

Cons

  • Low quality stainless steel won't retain its appearance over time
  • Limited overall construction quality
  • Rotisserie system not standard
  • Cheap porcelain barrier

Description

  • Four 13,000 BTU 304 stainless steel burners
  • 522 square inches of primary grilling area for a total cooking area of 700 square inches
  • 52,000 BTU maximum output from the main burners
  • Stainless steel and cast aluminum construction. 304 stainless on the hood and control panel
  • Relatively heavy porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates
  • 12,000 BTU side burner
  • Push and turn igniters on knobs
  • Enclosed cabinet
  • Does not include cover, rotisserie or propane tank
  • Imported exclusively for Lowe's by BBQTek (formerly Pyromagic)

Guide Review - Perfect Flame 4-Burner - Discontinued

This model has been discontinued. It is replaced by the Perfect Flame 4-Burner Gas Grill. This model has been recalled. If you own this grill, discontinued use and contact the Lowes for more information. See the Consumer Product Safety Commission website for contact information.

The emphasis on stainless steel gives us grills like this one. The low quality stainless steel on this grill is little more than decorative. The basic grill isn't bad, but would have benefited from better quality internal components and a stronger cart design. Instead we get stainless steel parts that don't have the quality to stand up to the elements and parts like the flimsy porcelain coated burner tents that do little to distribute heat or even protect the stainless steel burners.

On the other hand this grill can't be called wimpy. The 52,000 BTUs from the main burners is a lot of heat (and a lot of fuel) for the relatively small size of this grill. In fact it is probably more than the grill really needs, suggesting that this grill was designed for the person looking for power versus quality. At around $300USD you can certainly get a better quality grill, probably with this power, but I would certainly recommend looking elsewhere for a good grill.

Perfect flame is a store brand of Lowe's Home Improvement stores and made specifically for them by the same maker of BBQ Grillware grills.
