Built-in grills

So many of us are moving towards having a built-in grill that I thought I would provide a few key factors on what to consider in a grill. The first is the size of the grill. I caution you from getting too big of a grill because you might not need the largest size grill that is available for sale. There are many grills that I can not envision in a person’s backyard but people want them because they might need the space someday. The bigger the grill the more gas it will require and the more space it will take up in your outdoor kitchen.

The quality of the grill will be largely dependent on the quality of the stainless steel. 304 stainless steel is the most common stainless steel. 316 stainless steel is marine grade and will last longer. The chemical composition between 304 and 316 is very different and we recommend only using 316 grade stainless steel if your grill is going to be exposed to ocean winds.

The three main brands of grills that we install are Kalamazoo, Napoleon and Lynx.

The Kalamazoo hybrid fire grill {K750} is made from 304 stainless steel, has 726 square inches of cooking area and costs $17,995. This grill can cook as a traditional gas grill or a charcoal grill or a smoker. It is very easy to use and it is compact.

The Napoleon built-in Presige Pro 500 is also made from 304 stainless steel and has 760 square inches (500 primary) of cooking area and costs $1,800. This grill has an infrared rear burner that can get up to 1800 degrees in a minute.

The Lynx 36″ Professional built in grill with 1 Trident Infrared Burner and 2 ceramic burners (L36TR) has 935 square inches (640 primary) of cooking area and costs $5,859.

As you can see, we normally install grills with 304 stainless steel but 316 stainless steel will be a better option for you if your grill is exposed to ocean winds.
