American Outdoor Grill L-Series 36-Inch
As the lowest priced built-in gas grill on this list, you would think it a lesser product. The American Outdoor Grill L-Series is not.

Made entirely of 304 stainless steel, this three burner, 50,000 BTU grill has an advanced ignition system and two internal halogen lights. The only reason that it isn't at the top of this list is that it is a little lower in power. While not a serious factor, it is enough for second place.
Sedona by Lynx 36-Inch
Another of the lower range gas grills from a top end manufacturer, the Sedona is actually made from 201 stainless steel, which promises (and apparently delivers) all the benefits of 304 stainless for less money.

Made from all 304 stainless steel, this unit also has two internal halogen lights. At around $2,700USD this comparable to the products above and part of a full line of outdoor appliances.
Caliber Crossflame Silver 35-Inch
Calibur is a relative newcomer to the outdoor cooking market, but their American made products stand up against the best of the best both in design and in function.

DCS builds a serious grill for the serious griller.
Profire Professional 36-Inch
The Profire gas grill is the high-end, stainless steel product from Modern Home Products (MHP) who have been making gas grills since 1960. While this model has their strong commitment to quality, it isn't the most innovative of grills. The burner design is straightforward and simple, which doesn't mean the most even of heat. Each of the three control knobs on the front fire two straight tubular burners, meaning there are six, 11,000 BTU burners in the fire box and sit under stainless steel diffuser plates.
