Brinkmann barbecue grills.

There is just no way of actually knowing where and when man first began using fire to cook food, but it is a sure bet that the very first steak was most likely cooked over an open fire and the grill was simply a bed of coals. Since that time, the entire family has joined in to savor the goodness that comes off the grill.

Many barbeque grills are so well built that they will last a lifetime, while others are only meant to entertain for a season or two. For the homeowner who is interested in longevity of the product, there may be a few things that should be considered before making that purchase.

The first thing to consider when purchasing a new barbeque grill or bbq grill parts to replace those that have worn out from a great deal of use is the price that will be paid to bring that baby home. The old saying that "you get what you pay for" has held true throughout the years, and when it comes to a good bbq grill capable of lasting for many years, the initial higher cost is more than made up for in extended use.

The Brinkmann gas bbq grill model comes with a rotisserie burner with an output of 12,000 BTUs that is complete with rotisserie motor and rotisserie kit including the spit, handle, counter weight and forks. The stainless steel cooking grates make it easier than ever to clean up after the grilling is done. Stainless steel is not a prous surface so grease and marinades with not hold onto the surface material. The dual fuel valves can be converted to either NG or LP gas and the one touch electric ignition means that there is no need to worry about barbecue grill ignition.

This bbq grill is perfect for those who are looking for that little extra in their back yard without spending four thousand dollars on a built in BBQ grill. Custom outdoor summer kitchens are built to match the design of the backyard and constructed to last as long as the home. A well built barbecue grill island will be as solid as the home and last as long. Barbecue grills do not always last as long and the ones that do last decades are n a much higher price bracket.

Brinkmann barbecue grill models change every year or two and the gas grill replacement parts necessary to keep them grilling are not always available through the retailer or manufacturer. The brand name has been selling in the barbecue arena for long enough that several manufacturers make replacement grill repair parts for the Brinkmann models. Sometimes the burners get clogged with grease or the knobs on a well-worn grill get a bit loose and some of the control is missing. When the barbeque model is part of a custom installed outdoor kitchen the common replacement is not an option because a new barbecue must fit the built in specifications of the original gas grill size.

Brinkmann has a lot of gas BBQ models that are cheaper to replace than they are to repair. However the gas grill repair parts for many of these are not distributed through Brinkmann and tend to be built to a higher level of quality than the original grill parts that came in the barbeque. The replacement parts will often outlast the original grill parts. In a custom outdoor kitchen this becomes very important as the design is built to last the lifetime of the home and to add value to the home. Grill repairs should be completed with a focus on quality rather than expense. The better quality grill parts will allow the barbecue to keep grilling beyond the original time for repairs.

Custom outdoor kitchens have long been the option of very wealthy homeowners. With gas grills like Brinkmann the custom grill island becomes more affordable. Similar sized gas barbecue grills cost five times the price on the brinkman built in BBQ grill models. The materials and the grill parts are made better and the more expensive models have more features but a custom outdoor kitchen on a budget has become possible with lower priced models that perform well as a basic barbecue.
