Things We Love:
The Fire Magic Choice gas grill is a great value, considering it’s made with quality stainless steel and powerful burners. Fire Magic produces some of the finest grills money can buy, and this grill is a great example of their craftsmanship. The 304 grade stainless steel hood is double lined with beautiful polished edges and looks really sharp.
The Choice comes with “u-shaped” stainless steel tube burners. Like all other Fire Magic grills, these burners create different heat zones across the grilling surface. The burners have versatile cooking performance, working equally well at high and low temperatures. The Diamond Sear stainless steel cooking grids offer more surface contact than your typical round grids, so your food gets a great sear every time. The cooking grids now come standard on the Choice series grills. Underneath the cooking grids are the stainless steel flavor grids, made of 16-gauge stainless steel with perforations that help protect the burners and reduce flare-ups.
Fire Magic also delivers with a great warranty. The stainless cooking grids and housing has a lifetime warranty. Meanwhile, the burners have a 20 year warranty, and other components vary in length. The bottom line is Fire Magic is a reputable company that builds quality products, and our customers who buy Fire Magic report very few problems back to us.
Choice grills are backed by a strong multi-user warranty. They are available in built-in or on a post, which make them an excellent choice for these installations. The multi-user warranty is 5 years on housing, burners, grates, valves, inner liner, manifold and 1 year on all other components.
Things To Consider:
The grill is designed with heat zones, which provide a hot zone across the back, while the front corner zones are slightly cooler. This is something to consider if you are looking for a grill with an even heat cooking surface, however, some customers like this feature and use it to shift food around on the grill. This grill is basic and as such, it lacks many of the extra features found on similarly priced grills.
You'll Like This Grill If:
If you want a basic, all stainless, American made grill with a good warranty made by a great company.

When will my item arrive?
Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3-5 business days. While UPS and FedEx are our carriers for smaller items, be aware that larger items and orders are shipped via freight. The freight process is a bit more complicated than what we’ve all come to expect for small parcels, so it’s important that you’re prepared and understand what’s required of you well before delivery day.
- Most freight products ship on a pallet
- Some carriers will call to schedule a delivery window, while others will deliver the shipment to a reasonably accessible location closest to your residence (their goal is to deliver as near a garage door as they can).
- We’ll specify which process you can expect in your shipping confirmation email.
For carriers that schedule delivery appointments:
Carriers that schedule delivery appointments require you to be home for delivery and provide your signature. The delivery is made with a semi-truck with lift gate services, and the shipment is dropped off at the curb. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, BBQGuys can’t be held responsible for damages that occur during delivery. As complicated as this process may seem, we’ve only scratched the surface here — please review our detailed guide to freight delivery so there are no surprises when a freight shipment heads your way.
For carriers that deliver without an appointment:
Carriers that deliver without an appointment don’t require you to be home or set up a delivery window, and you aren’t required to sign for the pallet(s). Instead of scheduling an appointment, arranging your schedule to be home for the delivery, and signing to confirm receipt, you can sit back and let your items come to you. If you’re home at the time of the drop-off, you can request the driver place your delivery in the garage; if you’re out of the house, the driver will leave it near the garage or doorstep.
$6.95 Flat-Rate Shipping
Anything under $49 ships at one low price. If your order increases, your shipping stays the same!
Return all new, unused, and unassembled items in their original packaging, and we'll give you a full refund minus the cost of the original AND return shipping.
No Restocking Fee
Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.
So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
