Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very well built but uneven cooking Unit is quite well built. After first year the igniters all died. Onward sent me replacements immediately. I remove the burners and grills every winter and cover it up nice. The screws that hold the burners require oil to unseize them. Generally it's held up well. Biggest issue is that it cooks completely uneven. The far left burner cooks hot, next to it takes 2x long to produce same results. The next two burners are a bit better but not much. The cast iron right separate two are very good and hot. I use them to sear the meat. The problem is the main cooking area. I wound not mind if it were a $200 bbq but it's a premium expensive unit. Would like some help and a fix for this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Just purchased the Imperial XL which has some great features which I guess is why it was chosen. Oven lights and illuminated controls are great. However the design of the grease tray for the bigger grill involves disconnecting the gas regulator when you need to clean. Then getting the 13kg gas bottle out to actually disconnect is a very difficult almost Herculean task. Not really a good design for the British market. Added to this ever time you attempt to remove the gas tank it catches on the ignition wires which fire up the burners. Ideally the gas line should have some form of quick release or you could use the 5 kg gas bottle but these only last a few weeks so an expensive option. Also after just using the grill aa couple of times the state of the vapour bars and trays is very shabby and discoloured. Very difficult to clean and looking rusty already.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not hot enough If no wind - bbq'ing heats fine - but with any wind the grill does not properly heat up. I have had the Imperial XL for 5 years now and have tried every possible trick to get the heat up / block wind. Generally I think the design is the problem..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works very well, but not without challenges. We have had ours for about 5 years. It is a natural gas grill, which we enjoy and has worked well. But, not sure if that had anything to do with the pilots lasting for less than a season. Also it is not very strong structurally, because it sits on a slightly uneven surface which makes left door unhinged and other drawers hard to open. Lastly, the grids from back then were probably of lesser quality and cannot be kept clean. As far as burners, grilling durability, quality of cooking - absolutely great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it, but it looks horrible! We received the Imperial XL as a house warming gift when we moved into our house 5 years ago and have loved cooking on it year round since then. However as we got into the 2nd year the Broil King chrome logo began bubbling and has since flaked off. Same for large chunks on the black sides of the main and side covers as well as the shelf on the smaller side. All of the chrome handle extensions have blistered and are peeling off. The external cooking tool holders are all rusted along with the similar "rivets" holding together the hoods. We cover the unit when not in use, but that has done nothing to protect the unit. Functionally, this is the best BBQ that I have ever owned ... but aesthetically, it is a major eye sore on our frequently used outdoor patio. Images are available if required.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality, poor service... . I recently purchased the Imperial XL. Upon assembly one of the doors was warped and when we tested the BBQ the small cabinet and rotisserie burners would not ignite. We checked all the wires for connection. I called customer service and they have sent me the parts. First, when you purchase a brand new product and it arrives defective I would have thought they would have a service co. come and make it right. But, this is not the Broil King solution. I have received the parts and I can access the pdf manual on assembly. Nice.By the way in "trouble shooting" if an ignitor doesn't work...use a match is the solution. At the very least one would think that the BK could send step by step instruction on the installation of the ingnitor so we, the customer, doesn't have to figure it out on our own.Broil King, this is you high end product, you need to do better. As with most of us, time and money are our 2 most scarce resources, I don't expect to spend my time fixing a brand new BBQ and if I do, you, the vendor, should make it as painless as possible. So next summer when friends are over and asking how I like the BBQ, how would you like me to respond? I fully realize you will likely filter out this response. Just to be clear, this is the first comment on a product I have ever written, so I'm not a serial complainer. I come from the business world and understand mistakes happen, it's how you address them that defines you. So far, you fail.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really! I bought what I thought was the creme de la a creme of Broil King BBQs. Within the first few months the front panel ink peeled off. Called onward and they were great to send me a new front panel. Then not long after the gas control knob got stuck and when I went to ignite the side burner ignited scorching the side burner cover. Ok Onward customer service is outstanding and they sent me a cover and new gas control assembly. We BBQ all winter and I noticed the paint flaking. Seriously can this really be happening. This is a $2500 grilll. Come on! I called Onward and one again outstanding customer service. They sent me a new large cover. Today... spring motivation I decided to attempt to replace the front cover plate and new lid. Ok not an easy task. In my attempt the screws will not come out of the control assembly. Where the knobs are. I removed the front assemble the rotisserie gas attachment broke. Omg ! Not what expected. Ok I can deal with this. How the heck do I fix this crazy thing. What an ordeal! And why do I need to deal with this. I just blew 2500 bucks on garbage. On Monday I will be calling onward again. I am more embarrassed on the money I spent on what I thought was a great BBQ. Onward I need your help here!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good grill but has some Issues I have own this bbq for 3 years now, last year i noticed that the chrome around the temperature gauges was starting to peel away, Well now the both gauges have lost all the chrome and looks terrible. I would have expected more from a bbq of this price point to stay in better shape. I even have a breathable cover that was recommend so the the moisture doesn't sit underneath the cover and cause issues. The little plastic tabs for the doors that keep the doors on and opening have all disappeared they fall off and end up going through the cracks in the deck, I would thought they would have a little better design for theses. Overall the rest of the bbq seems quite fine,the lights are a nice feature and hydro hookup is a great idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Grill and Customer support I bought the grill a few months ago and had a few problems but between customer support and Them sending a rep to my house to fix. It has been a wonderful experience. They went way above and beyond for me. For I am a Disabled Marine that has many problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is great but I love this grill. It is the grand daddy of all grills but whoever made the grease pans needs some help, they are very small, are hard to get in and out. Also the screws to the lights rusted quick. Other then that I love having two sides, small side for small things and the large side for bigger items. Or if I am cooking to different items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flexibility with ccoking I bought my BBQ back in 2012, it's been cooking very good till winter 2017, I have to replace the 4 main burners because they are rusted and start to split. The 2 doors keep falling off but that's probably just an ajustment I need to do, the grease trap fills very quickly, to samll for the size of BBQ, other then that I love it, use the rotisserie a lot and back burner does an excellent job. I wish at that price we would have cast iron burners instead of stainless steel that never last more then 4 or 5 years on most BBQs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well... not impressed I have paid this BBQ 2000$ CDN and i can tell you that i have always had a stupid problem with the GAS connector since the beginning... its over 2 years i have it, warranty is probably over but it will cost me another 50$ just to change that connector,... for a BBQ of that price NOT IMPRESSED with quality! Even when you roast something all the grease and oil just goes everywhere underneath and my GAS tank is a mess... i will go with WEBER next time...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ROCKY START BUT NOW I AM HAPPY WITH MY IMPERIAL XL I bought the top of the line Imperial XLS towards the end of winter and waited for spring to assemble it.Once I got it assembled which was pretty easy with the help of the youtube video,I found out that the side burner was not firing up, I also noticed some exposed wire on the small grill (photo attached). So I called the Onward customer service and spoke to Pranjoli Sonawane who said the problem is the igniter and that since I am outside the initial 90 days even though its covered under warranty I will have to pay for the shipping of the igniter,I explained that I bought it in the winter and only assembled it now just a few days over three months,after arguing for almost 10 minutes she finally agreed and shipped out an igniter no charge for shipping. As for the exposed wire she insisted that the unit comes like that and I tried fruitlessly to explain that the main side has some type of shield over the wire and I believe that the exposed wire would be a fire hazard ,she insisted that I assembled the BBQ incorrectly and I tried to explain that this part is assembled in the factory ,she refused to understand and said that they don't assemble .(I have detailed emails between us to verify what I am saying),I finally gave up and decided to return the unit to Lowes where I purchased it. Before I returned the unit I took all my corresponding emails with Pranjoli Sonawane and went to see the manager Mr Haydon at Lowes and once he read the emails he immediately said lets see the floor model and we confirmed that indeed Broil King did not assemble the wire covering on my unit correctly as the display unit had the covering.He said that he will contact the Broil King rep and sort this out and I need not return the unit. A few weeks later after a few emails to Hayden,I got a call from Mike the broil King service tech and he made an appointment to come home and take care of the problem. When he came home he noticed that the factory at time of assembly did not install the wire cover correctly and he opened the unit up and fixed the problem . He also fixed the side burner that was not firing up as the part (igniter) Pranjoli Sonawane sent to me was not the problem.,apparently there is a mesh over the hole of the supply line that was installed inside the pipe instead of outside..He fixed the unit up and even cleaned the BBQ.Super nice guy Mike. He also told me that the new models come with Stainless steel cast grates on the large burners ,I said "shoot I should have waited and bought the new model" He said write an honest review the owners are hands on and read all the reviews. Hopefully the owners will read this review and ship them out for my troubles complimentary. My BBQ is now working beautifully and apart from the initial problems I am very pleased with the evenness of the cooking and the overall appearance and quality of the unit. Mike saved the day!!!!!! I would recommend this BBQ to everybody but advise that you assemble the unit between the 1st 90 days to avoid paying for shipping for any defective parts. Hopefully the owners will read this review and rectify the quality control at the assembly plant.(and maybe ship out some new grates to me)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality for the price I would not recommend a I purchased this barbecue approximately 4 years ago. I paid $2,800 for it.a pretty penny. The barbecue itself looks great and there's ample room which is why I purchased it. The build quality is horrendous. In my time owning this barbecue I've had paint peeling, the lights shatter and break on the inside, knobs constantly breaking. It doesn't get much cheaper than this. I would suggest you save your money and buy a high-end brand that stands behind their product not this piece of junk

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love this grill---but After looking to take my grilling to a new level,I made the decision to buy an upper tier grill,I finally settled on getting the stainless lmperial from Broil King,purchased early 2014,first the pros 1. A little cheaper than a Webber 2. Great looking 3. Love the double ovens 4. Cooks nice and even,great heat control 5. Nice features,lights,drawers,lots of storage. 6. Customer service very helpful. Now the cons 1.Broil King emblems around both thermometers are peeling and bubbling all of the chrome off of them. 2. Cast Iron grates in the small oven are very rusty,just spent another $140 to replace them,not very happy about that. 3. Black paint on the drawer front is bubbling and peeling,also starting in other places on the grill- looks very poor. All these problems on a 3 year old grill,really makes me wonder what it will look like in another 3---my brother bought the Webber counterpart 2 years ago and it is holding up much better I think,his still looks new,my grill does not. Bottom line-great looking grill with lots of potential--just seems there are quality control problems--and now I am paying for it,wish Broil King would help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointed Bought grill from local Lowes store. They had to special order grill in, I knew it wasn't a stock item. When I was talking with gal from Lowes I mentioned that I was looking at a summit s 670 and they had a free cover. She said that broil king included a cover with this grill so not to worry. No problem came in a week later. No cover, and my power station( outlets for lights) is broken on one side and my right hand lid is missing a screw. I find the screw and the hole that it is supposed to thread into is stripped. Now since I bought it a week earlier than the promo broil king is offering a free cover. Upset that you spend 2500 dollars on a grill, that I get to fix a manufacturing defect and when I talked with Broil King they said I have to take it up with Lowes for my cover. I thought the good customer service thing to do was to take care of the customer instead I get to fix my brand new grill.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Impressed Bought my Broil King 2 years ago. Was there top of the line Imperial model. Looks impressive on the outside but this is the third season & the inside components are starting to break down already. Seems some of the interior components are made just as cheap as the much less expensive competitors. The heat deflectors are going to be rusted out by the end of this year even though I clean the regularily, some of the internal screws that hold the burners in place are so rusted you can't get them out to properly clean the burners, the LEDs on the dials are burning out, and even though I season the cast iron grill portion the same as you would a cast iron pan, its deteriorating. Would have been better off to buy a cheaper barbeque for $500.00. They still last about 5 years. For the money spent on the Broil King I could have had a new barbeque every 5 years for the next 20. Definitely not worth the investment. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great grill. 1 issue! Love this grill. works well for me, grills evenly, lights easily. However, the darn doors keep falling off. If i even try to open any door, it falls right off. its such a pain! sometimes I have to light the grill a couple times b4 it gets full power. I still can't figure out that issue, but I've learned to live with it. The door issue drives me crazy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my premium BBQ new owner, but so far very happy with the features. I bought based on a spontaneous decision. Had been considering a smaller model, but saw this model at a instore season end clearance (also missing a few parts) and reduced in price. I brought it home, ordered the missing parts and am a happy owner. I love the styling, lights, both internal and external, all the storage... and look forward to using the rotisserie... looks like I can cook a few chickens or roasts at a time on that long rotisserie skewer. A rotisserie burner is a must have feature for me. The smaller of the 2 chambers is perfect for a cooking for just my wife and I. Looking forward to entertaining guests with this BBQ. I also purchased a cover for it... to protect it from our Canadian winters. A must-have around here, also to protect the chrome and painted finishes to stay nice as long as possible. I will update this review later after I have used it more (only 4x so far this past week).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT grill This is a great grill. We are so happy we purchased it. We cook outside year around every day. This grill makes this pleasure to cook the meal. If you could put some type of screening on the bottom and back to make it mouse proof that would be helpful for the out side patio cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great over all cooking I purchased this BBQ in late spring 2019 and i was very happy with its ability to keep Temp and how it cooked evenly, Also the rotisserie functionality of this BBQ exceeded my expectations. I have done rotisserie Chicken/Roast you name it it will do it. Great BBQ for its price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a BBQ!!! We bought this BBQ a couple of years ago and have been very pleased with it. Talk about all the bells and whistles. We, especially, love the steak grilling oven and the rotisserie features. The extra storage drawers are also great. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique split grill We've had the grill for a few months and think the split grill design is fantastic! With just 2 of us most nights, having the smaller grill feature on one side is perfect. Then, when we have company, the larger grill accommodates some of the best rotisserie chicken ever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent BBQ, minor flaws To start this off I think it's fair to note: A) I replaced a previous Broil King with my new model B) I had to do this due to my wife having celiac disease and not wanting any cross-contamination The grill was assembled by a local HH and I have no issues with that whatsoever. It is well put together, sturdy and looks good! When purchasing I didn't realize some of the extra features. The slide out propane tank (no natural gas in my area) is very slick. Good storage space for various things. I purchased the broil king cover and it fits well. My only, and I say only, problem is that on both grills, the temperature gauge reads about 50 degrees too high (confirmed with probe therm. ) And as such, my gauges aren't at the right ratio. Med/High is actually high. High is actually wide open. etc. Once I learned the difference I can grill effectively, but it did take some time, and its not equal on all levels. Great grill, love the rotisserie. Just wish the temp/gas/dials were all equal. Will buy again.
