Sovereign Gas Grills

The Broil Sovereign 90 is a mid-size model in their Sovereign Line. The grill head is cast aluminum with a stainless steel wrap. The Sovereign 90 comes with three 14,600 BTU main burners, an 18,000 BTU stainless rear rotisserie tube burner, a 10,000 BTU side burner and electronic ignition. Rotisserie kit is included.

Cooking grates are 9.5mm stainless steel rods. Flav-R-Zone heat tents blanket the bottom of the deep firebox, mitigating flare ups, sizzling drippings and radiating searing 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 large items like roasts and turkeys.

Substantial side shelves feature built-in condiment trays and built-in BBQ tool hooks. The cart has two doors. Sovereigns are available in LP or NG models.

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.  We have not tested these burners yet.

Broil King is a Canadian Grill manufacturer that offers a great selection of gas grills from portable to large models in price ranges from moderate to premium. They pack a lot of features into many models, like hood lights, condiment bins and slide out propane tank shelves. Many independent hearth and patio stores that carry high priced luxury grills offer Broil King to customers who want something better than standard big box fare, but don't want to spend several thousand bucks. They also make the popular Broil King Keg, previously called the Bubba Keg, an insulated steel Kamado style grill that can be attached to a trailer hitch for easy transport. Accessories, tools and cook books are available as well.

Broil King is owned by Onward Manufacturing. Onward also owns Huntington, Broil-Mate and Sterling Grill lines, as well as Grill Pro and Barbecue Genius Parts and Accessories. Some Broil King models are made in the USA and some in Canada. Broil King Imperial, Regal and Baron are made in the USA at their Huntington, IN facility. Signet, Sovereign and Monarch are made in Canada They use the term “Made in North America” as a catch-all. In recent years, Onward has focused on marketing their Broil King line and many models are now available in the USA at Lowe's.
