The Broil King Gem 310 is a small and simple grill, but one based on many of the features that make Broil King the most underappreciated grill company in the world. This grill comes with three burners that turn out up to 24,000 BTUs under 295 square inches of porcelain-coated cast iron cooking grates. And that’s it. But for the price, this is the grill to buy.
- Even-Heat Burners
- Fold-down Side Tables
- Cast Aluminum Cooking Chamber
- Small Cooking Area
- Basic Functions
Of course, it’s the price of the Broil King Gem 310 that makes it so attractive. But, it is how this money is spent that makes this the best choice in the price range. There is little in the way of shiny metals. No fancy extras. This is a gas grill. It grills burgers and steaks and chicken. It does what you want without trying to be more than it needs to be.

The Broil King Gem 310 is a great little grill. For those on a budget, or those who need a grill for smaller spaces or a small family, this is one to seriously consider. The grill is simple, but with added features like the linear-flow valves that offer superior temperature control, to the dual tube burners that provide even heating, this grill has the features of much more expensive units in a small package.
While this is a lightweight grill, the use of a cast aluminum cookbox and powder-coated steel offer durability. This grill will outlast the other gas grills in this price range. Also, the cast iron grills transfer heat efficiently and create good grill marks.
I have been writing about Barbecue & Grilling for 25 years. I have cooked on almost every grill or smoker ever built. In that time, I have endeavored to match people with the grill or smoker that is right for them. I believe that the right product is the one that you find easy to use, and capable of doing everything you want, reliably and with enough durability to make it worth your investment. If you have a good first experience, you will be back for more. In this way, we grow barbecue for the next generation. I want you to make memories that your children will cherish.
