The Broil-Mate 24025 LPGas Grill is a throwback to the first cast aluminum gas grills which began appearing in the early 1960s and are still made by American companies like Modern Home Products. 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, the price is also dramatically less.
This small gasser has an old style, 25,000 BTU stainless steel Dual Control Burner: a single burner that is effectively two burners fused together with separate controls. One large heat tent covers the dual burner to help even out and distribute heat (above). The cooking grates are porcelain coated wire so don’t expect sear marks from the low powered burner.

The 24025 could have benefited by using a higher output burner and/or cast iron grates that would store and conduct heat better than these flimsy steel rods. A warming rack is included. There is no grease tray, just a hanger for an empty soda can to catch gunk that drips out of an opening under the burner. A lightweight two-wheeled cart with no enclosure features resin side shelves with integrated tool hooks, and it comes with electric ignition.
We like Broil-Mate, which is owned by the Canadian Onward Manufacturing, makers of quality BBQ grill lines Broil King and Huntington. This grill was originally sold under the Fiesta brand, another Onward Grill company. It is also sold under their Huntington label. The aluminum construction is an attractive feature, but it could use a bit more power and better grates. Still for around a hundred bucks, it is what it is. Many cheap gassers have a one year warranty or less. This model is warrantied for 10 years on all cast aluminum parts, 5 years on the stainless burner, and 2 years on all other parts.
