Rated 1 out of 5Â by Arnold Rusted out after just 2 years!
I've had this for only 2 years and it has rusted completely through in several places both inside and outside of the grill. It was cheap compared to other grills of similar sizes when I bought it, but be warned; the overall quality is poor. I took good care of this thing and used a thick canvas grill cover year round but that didn't stop this grill from falling apart. It has a light, flimsy, aluminum foil-like body. It's very evident this is just a flimsy low quality grill once compared side-by-side with other higher quality grills that are available. Save your money and buy a better grill! ...Or prepare to buy a new grill a couple years later.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Disappointed Unsatisfactory! Doesn't get hot enough!
I would have rated this grill good in both Quality and Value, maybe even excellent, except that it can't cook steaks properly!
Its thermometer has a scale that goes from 100 to 600 degrees. Temperatures from 100 to 300 are indicated as "WARM", 300-450 as GRILL, and 450-600 as SEAR. With the outside air at about 65 degrees and all three burners at their highest settings, it has never gotten above 425 degrees or so. This is a deal-breaker if you want to cook steaks properly.
We're so disappointed that we no longer enjoy barbecuing our meals and we very much wish we had not bought this grill.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by doofus247 POOR QUALITY & POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE
This is a terrible product and was missing so many pieces. I would never buy from Brinkmann again. Their customer service is absolutely the worst, that is if you can ever get ahold of anyone to speak with.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by OneDevilDog Easy to assemble and operate.
Since this was going to be the first propane grill I ever owned, I was quite leary about buying this grill due to the reviews stating that the grill did not get hot enough.
However, I decided to go for it since the displayed unit was sturdy with thick cast iron grates and the burners come with a lifetime warranty (indicated in the instruction manual). What I had also saw was that the display model had this additional back plate attached to it to reduce the gap opening behind the lid. I believe was the manufacturer's fix to resolve the heating issue. In summary, I had the grill together in less than an hour and when I had fired it up on high for all 3 burners, in ten minutes, the lid mounted temp gauge was pegged at 600 degrees.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by squid grill stinks!!
I bought the grill not even 2 weeks ago and its already going bad. It started ok with a factory default with a nob that was upside down. Didn't really care about that anyway,didnt effect the use. The far right ignitor had trouble and kinda was hard to light. Then a week later the middle ignitor didn't even work. So 2 ignitors broke, the side burner nob wont go in all the way and is upside down, and the fact that this all happened in less than 2 weeks makes this grill a horrible purchase. DO NOT BUY!
