Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Broil Mate 4 burner
I bought it from home depot, it was from a past offer.
I had before a Brinkmann, The brinkmann had several short comings, lots of heat loss through the cover, burners screwed to the BBQ and difficult to change as the rust and heat welded everything, inside steel weak, rusts and brakes. The Broil mate is a good product which is, in term of quality and price, between a cheap imported grill and the Rolls Royce or, the american Weber. Broil mate is by the way made in Canada.
The grill is very powerful, (not to use full speed) and gives a good flavor to the meat. Sad that home depot is not following this product on a regular basis, would be an advantage as customers tend to confirm!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JG11K Solid Grill with Plenty of Heat
Assembly was a little challenging because the manual is for more than one model grill and there is not a written word in it, just pictures. But I managed to get it all together without difficulty. The grill has a very solid feel to it, although the two doors on the front don't always want to stay closed. I like the two 7 inch wheels because I have to move it over about 10 feet of grass to get it from where we store it to our patio. The electronic ignitor works very well. The heat seems to be very even, and there is plenty of it from the two burners. I'm very pleased with this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Great grill for the price.
Purchased it on-line and got free UPS delivery. There was NO damage to any of the parts. Assembly takes a little time but if you are even the slightest bit handy it should not be a problem. All screw/bolt holes lined-up. JUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS! Have used it about ten times since purchase and it cooks great. For a two burner grill, it really cranks out the heat and the cooking surface is surprisingly large. Both side tables fold down if you're cramped for space. Barbecue Genius gas grill cover I purchased is top quality and fits like a glove! Bon Appétit

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Billtheretiredguy North American made cast
Made in North America, this is like your old cast iron grill only better. It is cast aluminum, not some form of tin. The stand it is on is not flimsy either. Unit is heavy (just over 100 pounds) so there is a lot of metal there. Easy to put together. Rolls very easy on flat surface with four wheel support. A bit pricy, but worth it. Just glad I can still get a "real" grill! Good-looking, too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by R1234 Good for the money
Good sturdy grill (cast aluminum box and lid) except for the stand/frame. Had to add washers to every bolt to strengthen the thin sheet medal frame. I liked the plastic base; it's sturdier than the sheet medal bases on similar priced models. Cooks very evenly and heats up fast. Should last longer than those flimsey sheet metal grill boxes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Solid grill for the money!
I shopped around for grills in the $200-$400 range and nothing came close to the quality of this grill. For a basic grill you can't go wrong. By not including features like a useless side-burner or cheaply made stainless components, you end up with a very solid and durable grill that is built like a tank! This grill heats up evenly and quickly to temps between 400-500F in a flash! Cooking is a breeze and cleanup is very quick especially with the high quality durable ABS shelves on the sides. This grill has everything you need and nothing you don't need. Don't waste your money on some flimsy stainless grill because it "looks" better. You can't beat this grill for the money. I bought it sight-unseen online at Home Depot and do not regret it at all. Assembly only took about an hour with a few small hand tools. Anyone can put it together. Would buy another one if a tornado blew this away, but then again it weighs so much I doubt a tornado would blow this anywhere.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GDT2 Nightmare to assemble
Wow, can't believe I read reviews about how easy this was to assemble? Got home with this BBQ three hours ago and had to call for a broken wheel. The bolts and nuts are hard to insert and are so recessed in that they are hard to tighten and don't come with self tightening nuts- so you will need someone to hold onto one side (either nut or bolt) and tighten slowly as there is no way to hold onto some as they are so far recessed. Hand tighten only as no way to hold onto the recessed ends.
Hope they replace that wheel without a beep, or the whole thing is going back to Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jerry Awesome grill...excellent quality and build.
This grill is solidly build and it looks great. It did require assembly which took about an hour but it was actually pretty easy. This sucker is heavy! This grill seems to distribute the heat evenly and the burners heated up the grill very fast.
