Our 40 inch grill cabinet can hold almost all 36 to 40 inch grills with no help. But there are some grills which are almost perfect but need a little help. The above image show a Coyote grill which has been raised and sides which do not reach the full width. Concrete board is used to fill the gaps between the grill and cabinet sides. The same tile is used to fill the gaps are used throughout the kitchen for consistency. This is a great way to have almost any grill fit our system!

Here is some helpful information on the grill cabinets.

Now onto which grill is best! 

When it comes to buying a new high-end gas grill, there are things you should consider before making your purchase. By making sure your new gas grill offers quality cooking performance, style, durability, and versatile cooking options, while providing many of the conveniences you’ll find in your indoor kitchen, you’ll ensure you’re happiness with your built-in gas grill for many years to come.

 

With over a decade of grilling experience, on every type of gas grill, BBQGuys.com are the experts when it comes to built-in gas grills. To help you find the one that best fits your outdoor kitchen needs and budget, we’ve composed this list of the best built-in gas grills based on the following:

  • Best-In-Class – To help you shop and discover more grills that fit your desired style, cooking performance, or budget, we’ve categorized our gas grills into four classes: luxury, premium, mid-level, and entry-level, which are based on price, quality, features, and more.
  • Value – A grill’s value should not solely be based on price. Value is a combination of features, design, functionality, engineering, quality of materials, and price.
  • Durability – The construction of a grill should be a major factor when shopping. Typically, the best quality gas grills are made of 304 stainless steel. Not all stainless is the same and if the product details don’t specifically say 304, chances are it’s not 304!
  • Performance – Cooking performance is determined by a number of factors including BTU, flame tamer design, burner design, etc. Gas grills that cook the best have wider temperature variances, more even heat distribution, and fewer flare ups.
