The welds holding the gas distribution tubes failed after less than 6 months of occasional use. Now I have to use a lighter to light the fires. Very cheap construction. Expensive for what you get!

Unit worked fine for awhile

Pros
Easy To Use
Even Heat
Cons
No Funnel For Grease
Poor build Quality
Best Uses
Small Gatherings
Comment:
The unit was great until after it was used for awhile. The welds that connect the burners together broke. The thermometer stopped working, and there is no place for the grease to funnel into so the unit easily creates grease fires if you don't clean up under the burners before each use.
How long have you owned it:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Brinkmann doesn't honor their warranty

Comment:
Don't expect this company to honor their 3 year warranty on STainless Steel parts. The weld on the gas distributer failed. No gas was getting to the burners from the starter burner. The part wasn't in stock. I put in my claim for the part and they said they would send it to me. Four weeks later, it hadn't arrived so I called them back. They told me they didn't know when they would get the part. They said I could use the burners that were not igniting by lighting them with a match so I didn't need the failed part. When I said I thought that was dangerous they said they were going to cancel my warranty repair request and hung up.<br />They have a lifetime warranty on the burners. Unfortunately you may have to spend a lifetime to get this company to honor its warranty.
