Broil King Imperial 590 Gas Grill LP
on April 21, 2013
This is an excellent grill because of the evenness and adjustment of temperatures. The linear valves and double burners really make the heat even and consistent. I've been a Charcoal (weber) grill person for years and bought the Broil King (BK) after I read consumers report and their highest rated large grill made by Huntington, which I later found out is Onward Manufacturing. So then I looked at other models and choose the 590 model which has large grill, rotisserie more usable and standard features, drawers to put the gloves, outside trays for the condiments, hooks and front and sides for the tools. Note that the front I think requires using square/rectangular hooked tools of BK to match the indent/hook area on the grill. Their temperature gauge on front I think starts at 50 deg F, so you know it's working before you turn the grill on, as it shows the current temperature (as long as it's above 50), many others are pegged and you don't know they're working til you turn the grill on and wait and hope to see the needle move. This grill, made in North America (Canada), uses substantial materials (thicker). It weighs in nearly 250 lbs.
I bought this through AimToFind, whom I had not heard of before this purchase and they did an excellent job, the price was the lowest, Including shipping and was delivered off the truck, off the pallet and placed in our garage so I could assemble later. A few days later a rep from AimToFind called the house to see if the grill arrived safe and sound. They also sent an email and I responded to the email. While I had somewhat of a hard time to locate this grill on line, there were a few vendors that did stock and offer reasonable pricing. AimToFind is based in PA so shipping to east coast and midwest is pretty easy, fast and not many roads to travel. Some vendors were from CA and that's too far banging around on a truck for all those miles.
Note the BK 68492 Grill Cover fits great and it too is substantial, the description is PVC Polyester and I hear that and think of plastic, but this is the type of plastic that they make 'ballistic' back packs out of...I know not exactly, but it is heavy fabric and not 'plastic'. When I was on amazon searching for a cover, I had gotten some hits on a different cover with some bad reviews, I went to the manufacturer and found the model number for this heavy duty cover and then searched amazon and bought it. And it is heavy and hopefully will last for years on the concrete patio seeing afternoon sun everyday.
