Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far okay My previous BBQ was a westbend that I had for over 30 years. This one seems pretty solid especially the heavy stainless steel grates. Time will tell how the burners igniters and fancy lights will hold up. The rotisserie is good, the motor strong and quiet. I also got the searing element which is great for steaks. The only fault for me were the casters. They would be fine on a patio slab or deck but I keep my bbq in a shed and even with a ramp the plastic base immediately began to bend and fail. I replaced the casters with larger ones and bolted the plastic base to the metal frame. An option for larger wheels and a stronger base would help

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre I had to wait 8 months for delivery. The hose and quick connect line for gas supply is defective. The quick connect fitting is not deep enough and it crushed the fitting on the gas line. Called Warranty after website registration- "your item not in our system, it can take a week". Didn't bother to call back because I am using my old gas line. What I don't like is that the total gas supply seems weak or constrained. Side searer seems to heat up slowly, and does not get 1/2 as hot as the $500 propane grill I have at the cottage. The knobs that supply the gas turn 180 degrees, yet to be full on only requires a 90 degree turn. Why have a knob turn more than necessary??

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a great experience so far I received the BARON 490 PRO on last Saturday and used twice - both times took 5 minutes to reach 30 F with 4 burners going. Called Broil King and turns out they can confirm something is wrong and ship parts but the customer has to install them. Obviously this is not exactly why one pays $1,200 for a BBQ. Rule number 1 should be if something is faulty out of the gate, offer a replacement, instead of saying we will send parts and then say 'you're on your own.' Home Depot doesn't have this model in stock so they are offering to come and put in the parts if I actually get those from Broil King. I had 3 Webers, last one lasted 17 years. Sorry I switched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built to last My wife and I were looking to replace an older cheap grill with something of better quality that had the features we wanted for year round bbq. After doing extensive research comparing different models and brands, this was the bbq for us.At it's price point, this q has everything you need and the quality of material is superior. The all stainless steel cooking grids provide even consistent heat with fantastic grill marks. The flavor wave heat shields vaporize almost all juices adding a smoky flavour. The cast aluminum fire box and lid heats up quick and holds the temperature perfectly. The fact that it has a rear rotisserie burner and comes with the delux rotisserie kit is awesome at the price point.Cooking on this bbq has been an amazing experience after cooking on lower quality bbq's in the past.If you are looking for quality that will making barbecuing a breeze with many great features,l to last for many year to come, I highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a grill! Bought my Baron 490 Pro last year to replace my old grill from another manufacturer. After doing a considerable amount of research, I found this model had the perfect intersection of warranty, features and price, plus the all-black look of the cookbox was just too cool. I can cook just about anything I want on this grill, from rifling off a mess of burgers for when family comes to visit, to making my famous (at least to my kids) grilled seasonal veggie and sausage pasta. And that's not even considering what the rotisserie can do! I've cooked whole chickens, prime rib, and all kinds of various pork roasts to absolute perfection with the included rotisserie.The Baron 490 Pro is easy to use, easy to clean, easy to look at, and is easily the best grill I've ever owned!

Hubby is so excited with it that I get to sit back and relax while he does the cooking. It's like having your own private gourmet cook, it takes the guess work out of bar b quing it does everything for you. LOVE IT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for grill marks on chicken I bought a baron because it’s engineered to perform built to last and backed with broil king confidence. The propane cast iron grill combo is a dream maker for diamond grill marks on tenderloins and chicken teets Oh right on eh
