The Broil King Regal 490 is an excellent choice for a full feature gas grill. This model doesn’t put on a layer of shiny metal to make it stand out. Instead it loads on the features. While in this price range I don’t recommend going overboard, for those who want it all, this is one of the best choices on the market. This model can be had without the side burner and rear rotisserie burner for about $150USD less of the $1,050 sale price for this model, so consider what features you need before making a purchase.
Broil King uses a unique design to its burners that produces a more even heat that much of the competition and the heat output is higher than many others in this price range. Add to this the heavy, porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates and this is a gas grill that really performs. Expect high cooking temperatures and excellent transfer of that heat to foods.
It should be pointed out that the rotisserie burner on this model is not infrared like most all other brands. It is a standard burner that may not produce the kind of heat that infrared can, but it is still an excellent feature and it really works. While not a reason to turn away, this standard rotisserie burner is actually longer lasting than many of the inexpensive infrared burners on the market which can easily crack.
