Stainless-steel grates Primary cooking grates made of stainless-steel are generally sturdier than those made of coated steel and resist rust even without a porcelain coating.
Coated-cast-iron grates The grill's primary cooking grates may be made of porcelain coated cast-iron, which generally sears meats better and keeps grilling temperatures more consistent than grates made of porcelain coated steel. The porcelain coating usually makes such grates easier to clean than other surfaces, and the grates should resist rust as long as their porcelain coating isn't chipped.
All or mostly stainless Includes more than just a panel or other trim. Based on our limited tests, nonmagnetic stainless is less likely to corrode.
All or mostly stainless
Long-warranty burners While burners remain the grill's most-replaced part, most are warranted for only 3 to 5 years. Better burners are covered for 10 years or more.
Side burner A side burner, which resembles a gas-stove burner and has its own heat control, is handy if you want to cook vegetables or sauce without leaving the grill. A side burner could also be an infrared burner used for searing.
Infrared burner Gas burner that uses infrared technology (ceramic burner, plates and screens, or troughs as some examples) for cooking. An indirect flame is used for cooking food. Burner can be located as the main burner, side burner, rotisserie burner, or any combination of burners.
havent had a chance to use the smoker yet, though i do agree they vent it to much and it could use a luver. i grilled all winter in new england and was able to get the grill up to sear temp with no problems. i am very happy with my grill. i did go through my propane fast though, only lasted a month and a half or so. i was grilling most nights though so it may just have been me
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
Waste of time and money
Got this grill and the smoker doesn't stay lit. Contacted brinkman and they said it was the themocouple and that they would send me one.2-3 weeks later contacted them again and told them that it was not received yet, and was told that it was on back order and it would take 4-6 weeks to get it. 6 weeks later contacted them again and told them that it was still not received yet and it would be another 4-6 weeks.I paid good $$$ on something that cannot be use for 6 months. If I didn't use the top part of the grill I would return it. WHAT A BIG WASTE

Completely worthless after 2 years
I've had this grill for a little over two years now, and in the beginning it was great. However after two years of use I am left with a rusted chunk of useless metal. I was very diligent about covering the grill with a grill cover after each use, however the interior has completely rusted out and the grill is now worthless.
