It also features a 12,000 BTU side burner and a 12,000 BTU sear burner. The sear burner is a nice touch for this gas grill. Searing burners are useful for prepping your meat with a quick burst of heat before letting it cook on a primary burner.

The construction of this gas grill, while it’s not bad, is not of the highest quality. The housing material is stainless steel, but appears to be thin and flimsy. It is sturdy, but many other products on our gas grill reviews are made from stronger materials and appear more durable than the Brinkmann. The cooking grates are porcelain-coated cast iron, which allows for easy cleanup after the party is over.

The five primary burners are made of stainless steel, which helps prevent rust and wear. At 160 pounds, which could make it a little difficult to move around once it's constructed. It stands 66 inches tall and is 49 inches wide. This is a large gas grill, but it makes use of its size by offering plenty of grilling and warming shelf space.

The Brinkmann is covered by a lifetime warranty for the burners and a three-year warranty on all other stainless steel parts, which competes with the best warranties out there. The valves, frame, cart, igniter, cooking grates and other related parts are covered by a one-year warranty, which is fairly standard.
