Full Review – Bull Brahma 38-Inch Built-in Gas Grill Review

PROS

  • Packed with Extras

CONS

  • Limited Quality
  • Higher Flare-Up Potential

When Bull Outdoor Products started importing stainless steel grills from China there were not a lot of products in the price range. They quickly became successful in what can be called the lower end of the stainless steel grill market. Good enough to stand well above the mass market grills, Bull products are powerful, but lack a lot of the quality found in higher-end grills. The biggest problem with this grill is the uneven heat and relatively short lifespan for a built-in gas grill. It also doesn’t help them that the same factory producing these grills has started providing store brands to pretty much anyone who wants a private label grill.

This is not to say that the Bull Brahma isn’t a good gas grill. The complete 304 stainless steel construction and high heat output make it a viable option for the person looking to build an outdoor kitchen, but unwilling to pay the several thousand dollars for a grill head. At around $2,400USD for this grill, it isn’t exactly cheap, but considering that top end grills of this size can go for well over $10,000USD it is something of a discount.

Ultimately, the biggest problem with the Bull Brahma is that it is actually being made by people who don’t grill. The cast stainless steel burners are very nice, but the grill’s inability to spread the heat evenly back to front makes it a challenge to use. This is a very big gas grill that can cook around 40 burgers at a time, but if you have to spend all your time moving food around to get everything done at once, it makes grilling more a chore than a joy.
