Broil King Baron 590
The Baron 590 gas grill features five dual-tubed stainless steel burners. This means that each tube has two ribbons of flames, so you get a total of 10 rows across the surface of your grill. This is perfect to cook a large batch of food at once. The 480 square inch primary cooking surface plus 180 square inch warming rack surface means you can spend less time cooking and more time enjoying the company of your guests.
Each burner is controlled by an 180 degrees sensotouch control knob which allows you to set the heat to your desired setting. You also have an extra 10,000-BTU side burner for warming up sauces or sides while you finish grilling.
The burners are covered by flavor waves, which are also made from stainless steel. They distribute the heat across all the grill preventing any cold spots, and are also perfect for catching the drippings from your food, which will vaporize and penetrate it, giving it that delicious barbecue flavor.
There is a side table on one side which provides extra work space for any prep work you might need to do. When you are not using the side burner, close the lid and use it as an additional table as well. There is also a storage space for your gas tank which is covered by an elegant black metal panel.
The Broil Kings Baron’s lid has a centered thermometer to monitor the inside temperature of your grill. Two large wheels make it easy to move across your garden or patio. And once you’re done, its porcelain coated grates can be cleaned with no effort.
Weber 47510001 Spirit E310
With a primary cooking surface of 424 square inches, plus the 105 square inches of the warming rack, the Spirit E310 has the perfect size to grill up a couple of burgers for everyone in your family. Porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates retain the heat evenly and sear food beautifully. Best of all, they are removable and very easy to clean.
A set of two handy side tables let you place your serving trays and seasonings, and each one has three hooks for hanging your tongues, spatulas and other accessories to keep them within reach.
This grill has three burners, each one with a knob that lets you control the heat as you need. The burners are lit by an electronic crossover ignition system which is controlled by an igniter button.
The burners are covered by porcelain-enameled flavorizer bars. Any drippings will be vaporized and sent back into your food, giving it that typical grill taste you love. If any drippings happen to get pass the flavorizer bars, they will be sent to the grease tray, and then funneled to a catch pan, both of which can be easily removed for quick cleaning
This is a high-quality grill that will last for many years. Its sturdy porcelain-enameled steel shroud means nor fading or rusting to worry about, and its stainless steel body makes cleaning it a breeze. A convenient set of wheels make it easy to move and can be locked into position once you have the grill set up.
You do need to keep in mind that this grill is designed to work with natural gas; it cannot use propane.

The sear station provides a higher concentration of heat. Once you achieved your impressive charring results, turn off the middle sear burner and keep using your 424 square inches primary cooking surface as a regular grill. There is also a 105 square inch warming rack to keep any finished food warm while you do the rest.
This grill has three individual burners which provide a total 32,000 Btu-per-hour, plus an additional 12,000 BTU side burner. Each one uses an electronic crossover ignition system that lets you start them with the push of a button.

A steel door gives you access to the tank storage, which includes a convenient fuel gauge to let you know how much gas you’ve got left.
The Webber Spirit E330 grill sits on four heavy-duty casters for excellent mobility, which can be locked to prevent any further movement once you start cooking.

If you need some extra cooking power, there is an additional side burner which is perfect for frying side dishes. Keep your plates nearby with the side stainless-steel table and close the side burner’s lid to use it as a table also.
Both the grates and the warming rack are coated in porcelain, which makes them durable, rust-resistant, and quick to clean. Any grease drippings are channeled through a hole in the bottom of the grill and poured into a removable cup, so you don’t have to worry about any spills on your patio floor.
The grill’s hood includes a thermometer that lets you monitor the temperature inside the grill. As the rest of the grills’ body, it is made from stainless steel, which not only makes it look great outside your home but is also easy to clean.
