    BBQ Grill inserts - Which one is best

    I am trying to determine that best BBQ to put in an outdoor kitchen. I was thinking about a 30-32" unit. I am looking at RCS and Bull products.

    Does anyone have an opinion on the best grill (Quality build, lasts in the elements, etc)???

    Thanks

    My Firemagic has held up very well over the last 5ish years. But they are fairly expensive.

    Have you checked out the Pellet Grills?

    Primo Oval XL

    Once you go ceramic/lump, you will never touch a regular grill again!

    Thadius -

    Thanks, I will check these out as I have no clue what the differences are compared to a regular grill.

    I'd try to find a bbq forum...I bet they get these questions a lot.

    + 1 on the ceramic grill. Check out Grilldome.com. Lots of pics of how they are integrated into outdoor kitchens. The quality and taste of the food with a ceramic grill/smoker cant be beat. You can even bake bread and do pizza's.

    A large Grill dome will go for about 1,000 after you have the accessories you want but it comes with a lifetime warranty. My $500 grill I had before the dome rusted after 2 years. Even my wife is happy I got it although she was hesitant at first.

    Re: BBQ Grill inserts - Which one is best

    I have both a ceramic cooker (big green egg), and a gas grill in my island. My gas grill is a Napoleon grill and I am happy with it, but I tend to use the big green egg more than the gas now that I have both. I have grilled on gas my whole life and was always worried that it would take too long to heat up a charcoal grill and it be too much of a hassle. It really isn't that a big deal though. Having both is nice in case you do just want to fire up the gas and grill some brats, but if I had to choose now I would go with a ceramic cooker. Whether Primo, BGE, BBQ Guys or other brands I don't think it makes much difference to all do the same thing. Let me know if you have any questions on the differences or about my BGE or Napoleon.

    I would agree on the Primo/BGE both doing a great job. What made my decision was the oval being perfect for spares due to width. My purchase was just prior to the larger XL Egg , but I would still make same decision due to dealers in area and the Made in USA factor. Either product, you will be pleased.
