Unfortunately this fine little inexpensive grill has been discontinued.
Broil-Mate 155364 Gas Grill is a throwback to the first gas grills which began appearing in the early 1960s and are still made by American companies like Modern Home Products and PGS. Back then, cast aluminum housings were the norm instead of stainless or coated steel. The aluminum cookbox retains heat and distributes it evenly. Although the casting on this model is much thinner than the heavy duty MHP and PGS, the price is also dramatically less.
Furthermore, it has an old style, 40,000 BTU stainless steel “H” Burner: a single burner that is effectively two U-shaped burners fused together with separate controls. This should work great for 2-zone setups because, unlike straight tube burners, the U-shaped burner almost wraps around each half of the firebox bottom and 20,000 BTU per side is high output for a single heat source. A 10,000 BTU side burner is included.
Cooking grates are porcelain coated cast iron and heat tents are stainless steel. With 400 square inches of primary cooking surface, this is a good size grill for a low price. The cart is lightweight with no enclosure. It has side shelves with built-in tool hooks and only two 7″ wheels.
Regarding appearance, don’t judge a grill by its cover. Many shiny inexpensive gassers are inferior machines dolled up with thin flimsy low grade stainless steel. They often carry only a one year warranty, but for a few hundred bucks more you can play the extended warranty game. This unassuming cooker is a good, solid grill with an excellent warranty, especially considering the price: Limited lifetime on the aluminum body, 5 years on the Dual “H” burner and 2 years on everything else.
