As we move above $2,000USD for a built-in gas grill we find a large number of great products. Here is where the top-of-the-line manufacturers have their lower-priced alternatives. Look for all stainless steel construction and while the size and availability of extra features might still be a little limited, there is a lot to choose from. While I still recommend keeping it simple in this price range, the grills I have chosen here represent some fantastic products with great grilling capabilities. Avoid store brand knock-offs and do the research before you shop. There are a number of grills in this price range that still lack the quality and cooking characteristics that make for good quality, durable grills. I have looked at everything available and if it isn’t listed here, there is a reason for that.
Delta Heat 32-Inch
Delta Heat is the American-made ‘discount’ brand from Twin Eagles. This three-burner, 60,000 BTU built-in gas grill is one of the best on the market regardless of price and represents a great solution for any outdoor kitchen. For around $2,400USD, the superior engineering and design make this a joy to cook on. Add in all the extras and accessories and this is a product that will definitely add great value to your home and patio.
American Outdoor Grill T-Series 36-Inch
As the lowest-priced built-in gas grill on this list, you would think it is a lesser product. The American Outdoor Grill T-Series is not. This American-made grill from the same people that make Fire Magic Products is part of an impressive range of outdoor kitchen products and is a superior grill in design, function, and construction. 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.
Artisan Professional 32-Inch
At this point in the list, you have probably realized that this price range is the hottest for built-in gas grills since all the major high-end manufacturers have introduced brands to meet it. This three-burner model comes from Alfresco and features a rear-mounted infrared rotisserie burner (an option on most at this price) and a full rotisserie system. Made from all 304 stainless steel, this unit also has two internal halogen lights. At around $2,700USD this is comparable to the products above and part of a full line of outdoor appliances.
Napoleon Prestige Pro 665
This 38-Inch built-in model from Napoleon has seven burners including a rear-mounted infrared rotisserie burner (kit included) and a dedicated smoker burner with a wood chip drawer. The control panel is fully lit and there are two internal halogen lights for nighttime grilling. This is one package that had it all and for a price under $3,000USD.
Broil King Imperial XLS
Read the Full Review of the Broil King Imperial XLS Built-in Gas Grill
Broil King is known for its freestanding gas grills. They are, in many ways, the Canadian equivalent of Weber. Widely distributed and successful. What most people don’t know is that their higher-end gas grills are available as outdoor kitchen built-in appliances. These are traditional grills, so very different from what most people expect in grill inserts. This unit is large and packed with features. It is, in fact, two grills in one. A large standard grill next to a smaller standard grill. You can either use the side that fits your need or cook at completely different temperatures simultaneously. This is a complete built-in package. It comes standard with the insert sleeve as well as with a side burner unit. If you want a simple installation and all the extras, this is a unique solution worth looking at.
Weber Summit S-460
Yes, Weber makes a built-in gas grill. The first thing you need to know, however, is that this is a full-height insert. Because of the way Weber designs grills, this ‘insert’ sits inside an enclosure but still comes with the full cabinet below the grill. This isn’t what you would call a standard built-in gas grill. On the other hand, you get a full feature insert for around $2,300USD. There are four burners, plus a sear burner and a full rotisserie system. It should be pointed out, that this isn’t a full stainless steel grill. There are cast aluminum components and enameled steel as well.
