Cooking Performance & Features

The number of primary burners and power output of the Broil King Imperial gas grills varies across the three models as follows:

  • four stainless-steel primary burners generating 50,000 BTUs on the Broil King Imperial 490 gas grill,

The grills also come equipped with a 15,000 BTUs stainless steel rear rotisserie burner and a premium rotisserie kit, which is a great feature opening more cooking options.

All the models are generating an impressive amount of power and while the power output is not a direct indication of a grill’s cooking performance, it is a helpful measurement of its potential. The numbers of the Imperial gas grills series are able to satisfy even the most demanding cooking needs.

Operating the grills and ignition are super-easy with the front mounted control panel and electronic ignition system.

If you need a lot of cooking space, a Broil King Imperial gas grill is an excellent grilling option. The largest model, the Imperial XL grill features two cook boxes offering a total of 750 sq.in. cooking space and 250 sq.in. porcelain-coated warming rack.

The side shelves are made of stainless-steel, useful for storing items while cooking and also have small hooks for keeping your barbecue tools at hand.

Grilling at night is not a problem as the grills come equipped with built-in oven lights.

Fuel

The Broil King Imperial gas grills are available as natural gas or liquid propane fueled units. Natural gas fueled models have a great advantage as you don’t need to worry about refilling the tank and are quickly becoming a popular alternative.

Construction

Equipped with many primary burners and a large cooking space, the exterior dimensions and weight of these grills are pretty serious. Even if they are not really portable, all the grills are equipped with heavy-duty locking casters which help in moving your machine to the desired position.

The grill is constructed extremely well, and it’s built to last. The stainless steel housing prevents rust and wear as do the stainless steel cooking grates and burners. Every part of the Broil King Imperial looks solid and reliable.

Broil King Monarch Gas Grills Review

Created by the well known company in North America, the Monarch gas grills are well-built simple grilling machines. The Monarch series has two models, the Monarch 340 and the Monarch 320, which we’ll analyze in this review and whose features you can easily compare in the table below.

Cooking Performance & Features

The three primary burners of the Broil King Monarch gas grills can generate up to 30,000 BTUs. The amount of power is low compared to other grills, but is close to the power generated by other grills with a similar, not very large, size. Having a low number of BTUs has its advantage in the amount of gas used and if the cooking space is enough for your needs, it is really not a problem.

In addition to its primary burners, a stainless-steel 10,000 BTUs side burner is available on the Monarch 340 gas grill. It is large enough to accommodate saute pans as well as sauce pans and may come in handy for creating side dishes or sauces, while allowing you to conveniently complete cooking process at one time in one place.

The primary cooking area of the Broil King Monarch gas grills is 350 sq. in. and the warming rack area measures 170 sq.in. The total cooking area of 500 sq.in. is pretty small and if you are hosting a large backyard barbecue party, your guests might have to wait longer for their food to be done. Similar size alternatives, but with a little more cooking space would be the Weber Spirit gas grills or the Broil King Signet gas grills.

The cooking grates are made of heavy-duty cast iron. Cast iron retains heat very well, so you’ll be able to get those beautiful sear marks on your steak. 

Fuel

The Broil King Monarch gas grills are available as natural gas or liquid propane fueled units. Natural gas fueled models have a great advantage as you don’t need to worry about refilling the tank and are quickly becoming a popular alternative.

Construction

Each of the Broil King Monarch gas grills feature a rust proof cast aluminum cook box, powerful Dual-Tube burners and durable stainless steel components. The grills also come with stylish chrome painted steel drop-down side shelves with integrated tool hooks and a door designed for easy access to the propane tank.

The lid on the Broil King Monarch series is made of aluminum with a stainless steel insert. The stainless steel insert is resistant to rust, and the aluminum helps make this gas grill very light. It only weighs 95 pounds, which is one of the lightest gas grills we reviewed. It’s also quite small, measuring 59 inches high (with the lid open), 54 inches wide and 22 inches deep. The low weight and the 7″ wheels with decorative grey accent and 2.5″ locking casters makes moving the grill into the right spot a breeze.

Help & Support

If in need for help, you can easily find it on the Broil King website. On the company website you can find product specifications, user manuals and a useful F.A.Q. section which even contains video answers to your most common questions. You can always contact customer support for additional questions. We were pleased with the friendly and informative interaction we had with the customer support team of Broil King.

The Monarch Gas Grills are covered by a Lifetime Warranty on the Therma-Cast aluminium oven, 5 years on the stainless steel Dual-Tube burner system and 2 years on all remaining parts and paint.

Summary

If you don’t have a lot of space, or if you are going to move your grill around a lot, then the Broil King Monarch gas grills might be your best option. It has a lightweight frame and a small footprint. This compact gas grill doesn’t have a lot of firepower, but it will work fine for a small gathering or a family dinner. However, if your planning on hosting large barbecue parties, then you might want to check out some of the larger gas grills available.

Broil King Signet Gas Grills Review

Some of the company’s most popular gas grills, the Broil King Signet Series offers a decent amount of power and cooking space with reduced dimensions. There are three models available in the Signet Series which we’ll analyze in this review and which you can easily compare in the table below.

Cooking Performance & Features

The three primary burners on the Broil King Signet gas grills can generate up to 40,000 BTUs and the side burner can push up to 10,000 BTUs. Even if this amount of power might seem low compared to other grills, it will get the job done using less fuel. This grill also features a Sure-Lite electronic ignition system, which makes starting up the grill easy.

The Signet 70 and Signet 90 also feature a rotisserie kit, an impressive feature which will open up more cooking options.

Cooking space on the Broil King Signet gas grills is good, but it could be better. You will have 400 square inches of primary cooking area on this gas grill, along with 235 inches of warming rack space. This area is typical of Broil King grills, and while it’s not as much as several other competitors offer, it should still provide you ample room to grill several items at a time.

This gas grill also has a built-in temperature gauge that allows you to monitor heat while cooking, along with side shelf space for storing condiments, silverware and other grilling necessities.

Fuel

The Broil King Signet gas grills are available as liquid propane or natural gas fueled units. This fuel versatility is great in a grill, especially as today, natural gas grills are becoming more popular. Once installed, you no longer have to worry about gas level and trips to the gas station for filling the depleted propane tank.

Construction

The construction of the Broil King Signet gas grill is good. The cook box is made of aluminum and the burners, cabinet doors and side shelves are made of stainless steel, resistant to rust and wear. The other components are made of rust resistant zinc coated steel. The cooking grates are made of sturdy porcelain-coated cast iron. Weighing in about 138 pounds, this isn’t the heaviest grill we reviewed, but it isn’t especially mobile either. However, it can be moved into the right place using the 7″ wheels with decorative grey accent and 2.5″ locking casters. The Signet gas grills are a little smaller than other grills, though, measuring 48 inches tall and 57 inches wide.

Help & Support

If in need for help, you can easily find it on the Broil King website. On the company website you can find product specifications, user manuals and a useful F.A.Q. section which even contains video answers to your most common questions. You can always contact customer support for additional questions. We were pleased with the friendly and informative interaction we had with the customer support team of Broil King.

The Monarch Gas Grills are covered by a Lifetime Warranty on the Therma-Cast aluminium oven, five years on the stainless steel Dual-Tube burner system and two years on all remaining parts and paint. The warranty period might have been longer as in other grills.

Summary

The Broil King Signet gas grills offer pretty much all of the basics necessary for the backyard cooker. The three primary burners provide a good amount of power and there is decent cooking space available. Construction quality is good and the grill should last a long time. However, we would choose the Signet 70 or Signet 90 models for the 15,000 stainless steel rear rotisserie burner which provides more cooking options.

Broil King Regal Pro Gas Grills Review

Cooking Performance & Features

All the Broil King Gas Grills models have four primary burners. The powerful set of burners can generate up to 55,000 BTUs. As mentioned in our other articles, BTUs are not a direct measure of a grill’s performance but it is an indicator of how fast a grill can get hot and how hot it can get. The amount of power, the Broil King Gas Grills can generate is impressive. You can be sure it will get hot fast and stay hot. Please keep in mind, that with high power also comes a higher fuel consumption.

A 10,000 BTUs side burner is also available on all models – great for cooking side dishes. All the burners are easily controlled from the front-mounted control panel and the electronic ignition system makes sure the grill is ready when you are.

The stainless-steel rear rotisserie burner is one of the best features available. It is ideal for cooking spit-roasted chicken and other unique barbecue items.

If you still think you need more power, the Broil King Regal Pro 590 models also features a 15,000 stainless steel rear burner.

Stainless steel is the main material used in the construction of this grill, making it resistant to rust and wear. The cooking grates are porcelain-coated cast iron – an ideal material for those who wish to keep their grills neat and tidy. The porcelain coating keeps residue off the grating while helping to provide the trademark grill sear that every backyard cooker hopes to achieve.

The dense material make the grills pretty heavy, weighting approximately 185 pounds. Even so, moving the grill in the right position is easy using the heavy-duty locking swivel casters.

All the Broil King Gas Grills come with a Lifetime Warranty on the cast aluminium components, 10 years on stainless steel Dual-Tube™ burner system and 2 years on all remaining parts and paint. This is a nice warranty and should make you feel safe in your purchasing decision.
