Swiss Grill Z650D Review

Z 650D


The Z650D is a 6-burner with rotisserie and IR backburner and an infrared "Grizzler" side burner. The "D" stands for deluxe. A Z650 model is offered with a smaller cart and no side/sear burner. Construction is a combo of 304 and 430 stainless steel. The cooking surface is 8mm 304 stainless steel rod grates. The main stainless steel tube burners have 11,000 BTU output each and the IR burners are 12,000 BTU each. Electric ignition has one push button switch, but independent igniters for each burner.

Double walled hood holds in the heat and Swiss Grill claims their venting system also enhances heat retention. The Grizzler sear burner has an adjustable height grate to sear in the low position or use with pots and pans in high position.

A bright red signature bottle opener is mounted on the control panel. Plenty of storage in the cart with a large door on the right that houses the LP tank on a slide out shelf and two drawers on the left. This baby comes fully assembled on a pallet and ready for BBQ action.

Warranty covers all components against defects for 20 years.

2) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
