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 which still lack the quality and cooking characteristics that make for a good quality, durable grill. I have looked at everything available and if it isn't listed here, there is a reason for that.
Delta Heat 38-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 $2,800USD, 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 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. 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.
