Baron 420

The Broil King Baron 420 is a mid-size 4-burner gas grill. Broil King's expanded presence in the USA via Lowe's seems to be going well. Consumers are beginning to discover these beautiful well-made Canadian BBQ grills on Lowe's showroom floors and comparing them very favorably to Weber. A high compliment indeed!

The grill head is a stainless steel firebox and double wall stainless steel hood with cast aluminum hood end caps and four 10,000 BTU main burners. Coated, cast iron cooking grates. Flav-R-Wave heat tents blanket the bottom of the deep firebox, mitigating flare ups, sizzling drippings and radiating heat. The cook box is deep, the hood is high. Many believe this design enhances roasting. Certainly the headroom in the hood is great for rotisserie and cooking large items like roasts and turkeys.

Broil King claims their patented Dual Tube Burners produce more even heat and increase burner life.  Gas enters the burner first through a small, perforated tube within the large stainless steel burner tube.  The design is intended to create even gas pressure throughout the burner, resulting in even flame and evenly distributed heat stress on the burner.  Check out this Broil King BBQ promo video, or head to Lowe's and kick it around in person.

Stainless steel side shelves fold down for compact storage. The cart has two doors and four casters. Electronic ignition.

Limited Lifetime Warranty on the casing, ten years on the burners and 2 years on everything else.
