BBQ Reviews: Weber or Broil King?
When it comes to buying a new barbecue there is an enormous
to choose from. Sizes range from the portable and disposable BBQ for two or
the BBQ large enough to feed an army. BBQs also cook in three different ways, coal, gas or electric. So when
selecting your BBQ it is best to do a little research first to find the right BBQ for your needs.Here I have
selected two of the most popular and well established brands of gas BBQ to review; Weber and Broil King.
My first choice is the Weber 586002Q 320 portable outdoor propane gas
This barbecue features:
* 2 stainless-steel burners and has an input of 21,700
* This grill has 462-square-inches of total cooking space,
and 69-square-inch warming rack
* It includes electronic ignition, infinite-control burner valves,
and 2 folding worktables with tool hooks
* This grill operates on a standard 20-pounds propane tank (sold
separately) and comes with stationary cart and recipe booklet
* Measures 22 by 36-1/2 by 55-1/2 inches; 5-year limited
The Weber 320 can cook up to 18 burgers, 36 hot dogs, or 2 whole chickens at a
time. It also has a very convenient 69-square-inch warming rack for heating up buns or keeping already cooked food
warm. The grill electronically ignites at the push of a button for easy, reliable lighting. Its infinitely
adjustable burner valve with a high-quality regulator makes it simple to control the heat.
Other design details include two porcelain-enameled, cast-iron cooking grates;
a removable catch pan; and a cast-aluminum lid and body with a sturdy glass-reinforced nylon frame. The grill also
provides a taller lid profile with a center-mounted thermometer, Grill Out handle light, and large
This BBQ also has two invaluable removable folding worktables with tool hooks,
and it bolts onto the included stationary cart, which offers rolling wheels for smooth mobility and a screen to
hide the propane tank.
One of the great advantages of this BBQ is the speed it heats up and the very
efficient heat control.Assembly of the BBQ is fairly quick and easy and the Weber customer service has been found
to be very efficient and reliable. This is a middle of the range priced BBQ , suitable for the average size family
My second choice of BBQ is Broil King 987744 Sovereign 90 Liquid
Propane Gas Grill with Side Burner and Rear Rotisserie. While this is the more expensive of the two BBQs
it does have a couple of extra useful features that make it an alternative type of BBQ to the Weber.
This Product Features:
* 44000 BTU main burner, 10000 BTU side burner, 18000
BTU rear rotisserie burner and rotisserie kit
* Stainless steel flav-r-wave cooking system with stainless steel
* 725-Square inch total cooking space with 450-Square inch primary
* 3 Stainless steel dual-tube burners with flav-r-zone heat
* Sure-Lite electronic dual-electrode ignition system and Deluxe
The Sovereign Series is a complete outdoor companion for exceptional grilling.
The Therma-Cast aluminum oven and solid stainless cooking grids maximize the cooking ability and are rust proof,
unlike many other makes of grills. The spacious storage cabinet with extra-large fold down side shelves provides
room for all your condiments and utensils.
The heat appears to be very even across the entire cooking surface. The cooking
grates are excellent but very heavy. The rotisserie along with the separate rear burner are great and add another
dimension to your BBQ cooking. However, it has been found that it requires you light it with a match not the
Also the side burner is large enough for a fairly large pot or wok. This is a
good value for money BBQ, but there have been several issues over packaging and shipping. Some customers have
complained of damage to the BBQ during transport as it is very heavy. Broiler King's customer service however has
been found very satisfactory over this.
Having a BBQ is a great way to have an informal and relaxed meal with friends
and family. Choosing your BBQ will depend on the size you have to place your BBQ and the maximum number of people
you will be cooking for. Once you become an old hand at barbecues, you will find the more guests you get. So when
choosing your BBQ it's probably best to go for the largest one you can rather than regret getting something too
