Full Review - Fire Magic Echelon Diamond 1060i Built-in Gas Grill

R. H. Peterson's Fire Magic line of Gas Grills is some of the best on the market and this is the biggest and the best they make. This unit has a maximum of 120,000 BTUs from four dual controlled cast stainless steel burners under 1,060 square inches of primary cooking space (you can get welded stainless steel rod or porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates).

One of the particularly nice features on this grill is the divided firebox. Each of the four burners (dual controlled)is placed into a divided box to focus the heat of that burner onto the cooking surface. This lets you fire up one of the four zones to cook over and still have fantastic heat without preheating the entire grill.

Some of the optional accessories for this unit include a remote-controlled automatic lid opener. Yes, you can open the lid on this grill by remote control (if you get this option). There are also a wide range of side burner arrangements you can go with as well as everything else you need for your custom outdoor kitchen.
