You might see some tempting prices on Brinkmann gas grills at Home Depot. But before you buy, here's something to keep in mind: Brinkmann filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in October and stopped selling products in November, according to the Brinkmann website.

Four Brinkmann models landed on the recommended list in our  gas grill Ratings. The Brinkmann 810-6550-S was the best large gas grill Consumer Reports tested. It originally sold for $350 and is now listed at Home Depot for $239. Among small grills, the $130 Brinkmann Patio 810-6230-S was also impressive. It's now priced at $69 at Home Depot.

Home Depot says it's selling the inventory in stock and will honor the warranties. 

“We have universal replacement parts for Brinkmann grills, not all parts, but burners, regulators, and cross-channel parts” says spokesman Stephen Holmes. 

If Home Depot doesn’t have the parts, it will make concessions to take care of customers on a case-by-case basis, which could mean a refund, says Holmes. You can call Home Depot’s customer care department at 1-800-466-3337. 

Brinkmann, now called Outdoor Direct Corp., according to its website, didn't respond to a request for comment.
