Full Review – Artisan Professional 36-Inch Built-in Gas Grill

Alfresco is maker of the of the best and most expensive gas grills on the market. Some will argue that they are overpriced, but on the other had they do offer more ‘discount’ lines of gas grills. At the bottom is the Artisan American Eagle line and then there is this, mid-range Artisan Professional. This 36-inch gas grill offers all welded 304 stainless steel construction with three stainless steel tubular burners producing 60,000 BTUs under 600 square inches of primary cooking surface. This model also offers a 15,000 BTU rear mounted infrared rotisserie burner with full kit included. All in all, this is a full feature gas grill for a reasonable price.

When compared with the American Eagle unit, this grill comes standard with the rotisserie system as well as internal halogen lights and a fully lit control panel. These are good features, but may not be necessary for your needs. This unit also uses a ceramic briquette barrier which is good at reducing flare-ups and continuous spark ignition. As a built-in gas grill for an outdoor kitchen, this is an excellent choice and comes as part of a full line of appliances, cabinets and extras.
