Pro Picks: Gas Grills for Contractors & Builders

  • Recommended Gas Grills for Contractors & Builders as Ranked by Our Experts

    If you build tract or spec homes or work with multi-user properties, you’ve probably been asked to install a gas grill at some point. It’s one thing to know how to set up a built-in grill, but it’s something else entirely to know which grill is right for your client. That’s why we’ve put together this guide so you can be confident when advising homeowners or property managers about drop-in gas grills. Along with input from our experts and other industry professionals, our recommendations are based on warranty, durability, and availability from the manufacturer. Let’s take a closer look at why each of these factors should matter for your business.

    • Expert Opinions — We’ve been testing and selling grills for more than 20 years. We combine our extensive product knowledge with feedback from members of our Pro team, who also have plenty of hands-on experience working with grills from many different brands. With that in mind, you can rest assured that every grill on this list has a good reputation in the industry.

    • Warranty — A grill’s warranty speaks volumes about the quality of materials used to manufacture it. We also factor in the quality of a grill brand’s service department because your client may eventually need repairs or replacements. Simply put, grills with better warranties give everyone involved in your project some peace of mind.

    • Durability — Because these grills are installed in outdoor environments (and will hopefully get lots of use from your client), you should recommend models designed to weather the elements and stand the test of time. You can generally judge a grill’s durability by the quality and thickness of its parts — for this list, we looked for materials like commercial-grade stainless steel.

    • Availability — Last but not least, both you and your client will appreciate a gas grill that’s readily available. In addition to being easily accessible for purchase or repairs, grills in this category are often on the cutting edge of design and produced daily to keep up with high demand. They also usually ship quickly for those urgent outdoor projects.

    Keep in mind that if your client wants to build their BBQ island using combustible materials, an insulated jacket for the built-in grill may be required for safety reasons. Call our grilling experts at 1-877-743-2269 to find out if you’ll need an insulated jacket for your project.
