Artisan offers a selection of four premium gas grill heads. They are the entry level options for parent company, Alfresco, a manufacturer of luxury gas grills. The Classic 36 inch, Artisan’s largest and finest grill, has many attributes of the higher priced Alfresco models. High quality 304 grade stainless steel, seamless welds, internal hood light and a fold up warming rack. The U-shaped stainless steel burners aren’t as powerful and durable as Alfresco, but with 20,000 BTU input each, they generate a wide temperature range and can crank some searing temps. If you want more, an optional ceramic sear burner is available. An IR backburner comes standard. Rotisserie kit is optional.
