The Skinny:
Incredible cooking performance; premium quality; unique two-sided grates for cooking versatility and grease management.

Things To Love:
This DCS grill is a high-powered machine, producing incredible cooking performance.

DCS Series 7 Traditional and Series 9 Evolution gas grills are powered by 304-grade stainless steel U-shaped burners that are capable of producing a wide temperature range from 300 degrees (°F) to an intense 1,100 degrees (°F). While DCS tests and adjusts every burner at the factory, each DCS grill offers a low flame setting adjustment, allowing you to manually adjust each burner valve to lower or raise the flame if you find that the grill is getting too hot, or not hot enough when cooking on low.

DCS is unique in that it includes ceramic rods beneath the grates, spaced closely together and covering pretty much the entire grilling surface, to provide an even-cooking surface. Also, the ceramic rods greatly reduce flare-ups by vaporizing grease and delivering it back to your food as smoke.

DCS has an innovative, patented Grease Management System that channels grease safely into the grease tray that begins with the unique double-sided 304-grade cast stainless steel cooking grates. One side of the grates is curved, offering an ideal surface for delicate foods such as vegetables or fish, while the other side has grooves that channel grease away from your food, and down into the grease tray.

The DCS definitely flexes its muscle when it comes to rotisseries as well. The grill includes a rear ceramic infrared burner and heavy-duty rotisserie kit, powered by a water-proof motor capable of impressively turning up to 50 lbs of food. The motor also features a handy built-in grill light to light up your cooking surface.

Another cool feature you'll find on the DCS Series 7 is the built-in smoker box with dedicated burner that helps to add that great smoky flavor to your food. The smoker box is sealed, allowing you to add anything from wood chips to liquids, such as wine, and the box is covered and perforated, allowing just the right amount of smoke to escape into your food. Series 9 grills boasts a multi-fuel charcoal smoker tray with bar grates and easy instant gas flame ignition. The W-shaped design and adjustable vents helps wood chips and charcoal last longer. Great for both direct and indirect cooking.

DCS Series 9 grills have stadium lighting built right into the hood. They illuminate the entire grilling area and emits a welcoming glow around the whole grill. Intuitive bezel lighting on the grill knobs glow white when the power to the lights are on. The lights change to orange when the burner is on. No more wondering if you remembered to turn off the burners.

The secondary cooking space of the Series 9 grills includes two racks and one tray. These are perfect for smoking, roasting, slow cooking and warming food. Use the tray for catching flavorful drippings while roasting veggies or making sauces. The provided racks and tray offers up multiple cooking options making one of the most versatile grills on the market even more versatile.

Like the idea of all the cooking options, but don’t know where to place your cooking grates when they are not in use? DCS makes a great add-on for the Series 9 grills in the form of a side storage compartment. Conveniently store your grates while you use your rotisserie or store your secondary cooking racks and tray when not in use.

To top it all off, DCS grills are covered by a lifetime warranty and limited on-site warranty service, which is one of the best offered in the industry and proves that DCS stands behind the quality of their grills.

Things To Consider:
The radiant rods are ceramic and therefore breakable, and might need replacing at some point. If they break it will usually be due to dropping something on them (like a cooking grid!).
