The Bottom Line

This Grill has been Discontinued. 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 $200 it isn't that bad of a deal. Just don't expect it to last long or grill well.

Pros

  • Extra large grill
  • Low Price

Cons

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

Description

  • Three cast iron burners for a total main output of 45,000 BTUs
  • Porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates
  • 492 square inches of primary cooking space for a total of 636 square inches.
  • Electronic Igniter
  • Lid mounted temperature gauge
  • Available exclusively at Walmart

Guide Review - Brinkmann Pro Series 2200 Gas Grill

This Grill has been Discontinued.

As far as a basic grill under $200 goes this isn't all that bad of a unit. It has a very large (636 total square inches) cooking area and a basic grill design. You don't get anything special with this unit other than the grill. 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.
