- Easily converts from natural gas to propane
- 725 square inches of grilling space
- Infrared technology can need extra maintenance
- Doesn’t get as hot as traditional grills
While grilling with infrared technology may be a little different than a traditional grill, there are many benefits, the first being the even and very controllable heat that this grill produces. The infrared heat that the CharBroil Signature Grill uses makes the grill have no hot spots, no uneven temperatures and therefore, leads to no burning or undercooking! This is such a great feature for anyone who has worked with an inaccurate grill. Using Infrared heat also means no flare ups that are common, and potentially dangerous, with other grills.
Made in China, the CharBroil Signature weighs in at about 163 pounds and is 23.5 x 57.2 x47.2 inches- this is no lightweight grill!

#2 Broil King Baron
Now here is a grill that is built to last! The Broil King Baron is solidly constructed with cast iron grates and stainless steel burners which are designed to distribute heat evenly.

- 40,000 BTU’s deliver a high heat
- Rotisserie Burner with a motorized spit rod is included

The best thing about the Broil King Baron is its ability to heat evenly and retain its heat and isn’t that what grilling is all about?!? Distributing 40,000 BTU’s across 4 burners combined with the cast iron grates that lock the heat, this grill is specifically designed to make some perfect steaks. With a 10-year warranty on those perfect burners, you can be sure to be cooking on this grill for years to come!
Made in Canada, this grill is no lightweight model and weighs in at 154 pounds when assembled. While the grill does have adjustable casters for easy transport, its 57x24x45.5 inch frame makes this a solid and hefty grill. However, that extra space and weight is used wisely in the Broil King Baron’s design, which features a stainless steel storage cabinet, a side burner and two collapsible side workstations. While the main grilling area is a little small, only fitting about 15 burgers, the even, high heat that the Broil King Baron delivers will make up for this small grilling space.
Using liquid propane initially, this grill can also be converted to use natural gas. While the Broil King Baron comes with a great rotisserie which will cook up some perfect chicken, a smoker box is not included but can be purchased separately so you can smoke your meat right on your gas grill.
The cast iron grilling grates are a little tricky to clean and, in some tests, the meat stuck to these grills a little more than normal making them difficult to clean. However, if you are looking for a straightforward, no frills grill that will cook your meat just the way you want it, this is a great choice! The Broil King is also one of the best rated gas grills of 2017.
