Things We Love:
PGS Grills has a great reputation for producing well-constructed grills with quality performance. The PGS Legacy series is no exception and it's constructed with high quality, 304 grade stainless steel. I also like the stainless steel "Vari Grid" cooking grids, that feature a variable rod spacing arrangement, which offers flexibility for whatever you're cooking.
The Legacy has high heat output, u-shaped burners with good heat control so you can dial in more precise temperatures. PGS also places their thermometer right above the cooking surface for more accurate grill temperature reading.
One aspect that makes PGS a great value is how they calculate the size of the grill. For example, the Legacy Pacifica grill is a 36-Inch grill, and this is measured from the left side of the cooking grid to the right, and then from front to back. Most other gas grills measure the entire width of the grill, so if a competing brand is 36-Inch there is probably about 32 inches of cooking space. One thing that stands out is while PGS doesn't have a lot of flashy bells and whistles that can fail, they focus on quality and durability.
PGS offers a comprehensive warranty that is one of the best in the gas grill industry. The burners, stainless steel cooking grids and supports are protected by a lifetime warranty. PGS has a long history of producing quality gas grills, and customers who purchase these grills report very few problems. Also, you can take comfort in knowing that PGS is a brand that has been around for many decades and has a reputation for having amazing customer service.
Things To Consider:
As I mentioned, PGS builds a reliable grill that performs well without any major issues. But if you're looking for an innovative grill that will "wow" you with bold features, this grill may not be the best fit. For example, PGS Legacy grills don't have internal or control panel lighting.
Also, the PGS comes with a ceramic Moon Rock flame taming system that controls flareups and creates even heat across the grilling surface, however the ceramic Moon Rocks sit loosely inside the stainless steel rock grates which prevents you from simply flipping over the system towards the burners for easy cleaning. Ceramics are also known to be easily breakable.
