Examining Built in Gas Grills

If you have an outdoor kitchen or patio area that could use a little upgrade, you might consider looking into outdoor built in gas grills.  This alternative to the charcoal grill has a permanent place as an additional built-in structure to your home.  There are many of these specific types of BBQ grills currently on the market.

Many brands and outlets offer built in grills.  They include American Outdoor Grill, Broilmaster, Dacor, Fire Magic, Kenyon, KitchenAid, Lynx, Napoleon, Outdoor Greatroom Company, Outdoor Concepts, Solair, Twin Eagles and Weber.  You can find many of these quality grills for less than $500, but many may also cost close to $5000.

For instance, Napoleon’s Prestige II Gemini has twin cooking systems with individual grill heads.  The left side uses the high intensity ceramic infrared burners while the right has 304 stainless steel commercial grade tube burners.  It has 1156 square inches of cooking surface on which you use the patented stainless steel WAVE-rod cooking grids and sear plates that vaporize drippings and control flare-ups so that you get a restaurant style grilling experience or convection style cooking depending upon which side you choose.  This particular Napoleon model costs a little less than $2500.

If you need to go with a less expensive and less elaborate model, you could choose Napoleon’s smaller Ultra Chef 27-inch gas grill that is ideal for smaller areas.  This grill has 570 square inches of cooking space and a rear rotisserie burner.  It is constructed of durable stainless steel and heavy duty porcelainized cast iron.  You can find the Ultra Chef in either propane or natural gas models for about $450.

As you are selecting your built in gas grill you might consider other grill tools you will need to have the ultimate barbecuing experience.  With so many options on the market, you are sure to find something that accommodates your needs.
