This barbeque looks impressive and its performance lives up to its looks. It really gets hot and holds its heat. Ceramic bricks radiate infrared heat and protect the burners from drips. These bricks will apparently last for years (hotter, longer lasting, and cleaner than lava rock).

The barbeque has sturdy double walled construction. I have the propane model, but there is also one if you want to use natural gas.

There are four burners (and associated control knobs) on the main cooking surface. The main cooking surface is approximately 22 inches wide and 19 inches deep (418 square inches). A fifth knob controls the rotisserie burner which is mounted upright preventing drips into the flames and flare-ups. Of course it has an pushbutton igniter. There is a stainless steel drawer to use for creating smoke with spices or smoke chips.

There is a paper towel rack inside the door of the tank and storage section. An easy to use push button activated fuel gauge which works based on the weight of the tank. There are fold-down side tables on each side of the unit which allow you to minimize space when the barbeque is not in use. The rotisserie motor is strong and easy to attach to the barbeque. The wheels on the cart move smoothly. The BBQ can also be built-in to a cooking island.

Though BBQ Galore went through Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2008, the new owners have committed to honor warranties on products purchased from any store at anytime.

Most of the heavy steel parts have a limited lifetime warranty, most other parts have two years.

I really like the Barbeques Galore Grand Turbo.
