The Bottom Line

This grill is designed to give you a very large grill for a low price. Unfortunately for its size it is under powered when it comes to BTU output. The overall construction isn't all that great either. I have to put this grill in the "you get what you pay for" category. However at a price under $250 it isn't that bad of a deal for a three burner gas grill with side burner. Just don't expect it to last long or grill well.

Pros

  • 12,000 BTU side burner
  • Low Price
  • Extra large grill

Cons

  • Low BTUs for the size
  • Cheap construction
  • Uneven heating

Description

  • Three 15,000 BTU cast iron burners
  • 480 square inches of primary grilling space for a total cooking area of 620 square inches
  • 45,000 BTU total output from the main burners
  • Porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates
  • One 12,000 BTU cast brass ring side burner
  • Stainless steel hood and front panel
  • Hood mounted thermometer
  • Electronic Igniter

Guide Review - Brinkmann Pro Series 2250 Gas Grill

This model has been discontinued. It is replaced by the Brinkmann Pro Series 2300 Gas Grill.

As far as a basic grill under $250 goes this isn't all that bad of a unit. It has a large (620 total square inches) cooking area and a basic grill design. This unit is a basic gas grill with 12,000 BTU side burner. The problems that I see are first that the grill is underpowered. With an area this size you should have a higher BTU rating. Also the three burner design leaves this grill with an uneven grilling surface. Of course it's hard to find a grill that can heat evenly at this price.

The overall construction of this unit is weak. You get the standard cast aluminum grill body but the cart is weak and a little flimsy. Of the features on this grill the only one I like is the cast iron burners. They should last for several years. Take care of the cart and you should get a few good years out of this grill. Also the fine construction means this unit doesn't hold in the heat very well adding to uneven heating and limited high temperatures.

I have received several complaints about support with this grill. It would appear that Brinkmann is working to improve support only recently adding online information about its gas grills. The only thing I can say is that you get what you pay for so don't expect a lot out of this unit.
