Guide Review - Broil-Mate Model #155364 Gas Grill

Not the most modern looking of grills but with the high heat capability of this grill and the wide range of heat control that the linear flow valves give you this grill is great at grilling. The stainless steel vaporization barriers are built to last and the durable construction and high quality stainless steel dual burner will make this grill last a long time. The cooking grates are heavy and solid and do a good job of transferring heat to foods. At 40,000 BTUs this grill has a lot of power for it's 400 square inches of primary cooking area.

This grill has the same grilling characteristics of the more expensive Broil-King grills but with out all the accessories. If you are looking for a basic grill with lots of space that will last and provide great grilling then you really should look at this model. The warranty on this grill is also great and Broil Mate (a division of Onward Manufacturing) has a great reputation for service. Made in Canada this grill is typically available through specialty retailers.

Cast aluminum body is durable and should hold it's appearance for many years if you keep it clean and keep it covered. Standard cart configuration with two side tables. What this grill delivers is great grilling abilities at a very reasonable price (around $230USD to start).

Very good, only a few minor setup issues, Member tjcib

Seemed to get what I payed for. Reviews say this is the best grill for the money. I still believe it. It has proven itself thus far. Heat is fast and even. Side burner works well (though the side it is on seems like it is missing something, like a cover. It is a little weird to have bolts showing on a work surface). I love the huge upper rack/warmer rack. The only reasons I took away a star was: 1. Setup was a pain. I had to bend some pieces to get them into place. Not drastic, but still a little annoying. Having a second person helped. Not all of the holes lined up, so bending and ""non-straight"" bolts were necessary. I also had to hammer through a few because the hole simply wasn't big enough. 2. When I put in my Flav-R-whatever, it had grease spots and food residue on it. My wife said the same thing when she came in and saw it. There was dried specks of food and spots. Personally, I said to myself, ""there is going to be food on it all the time."" So I played it off, but a less forgiving consumer might freak out. I am hoping the employees just threw a few dogs on there when they were testing it...I thought about adding an image as proof, but there was no way to get it to show up in a picture on the stainless steel surface. Other than that, I got what I wanted and everyone is happy.
