Brinkmann 5 Burner BBQ Model 810-8502-F with Sear Burner & Dual Fuel Valve Review

Brinkmann 6 Burner BBQ Model 810-8502-F Review

These beasties are huge and if you can get one that is not dinged up or with broken welds you have a good grill that will last for 3 or 4 years. The grill features 5 burners, including side and sear burners, to allow for a variety of cooking methods. The grill’s 896 sq. in. cooking area accommodates large quantities of food and the 60,000 BTU cooking system delivers powerful performance.

  • 5 stainless steel burner for a total of 60,000 BTUs
  • Porcelain-coated cast iron cooking grates
  • 896 sq in of total cooking surface
  • LED illuminated control panel
  • 12,000 BTU sear burner
  • 12,000 BTU stainless steel side burner

The quality on these units is all over the place. Sometimes they are dented from the factory, not just small dents but huge fender benders. The metal welds are poor and let go around the control knob panel . Its the typical quality control issues of Brinkmann. Common complaints are uneven heat distribution. Metal casing very thin and Low quality. Knobs are made of plastic.

Gets really hot

"Didn't get 5 stars because of the plastic knobs on the gas valves. Bought on sale for $449. I put the BBQ together myself, took about an hour but by doing it myself I could make sure everything lined up perfectly - I can't complain about the fit and finish, it looks great. I really don't know what people are talking about when they say that propane doesn't get the grill hot enough. Fire it up, 5 minutes later the temp is maxed out on the gauge. Get's really hot. One other last detail, this thing is HUGE. Doesn't look that big in the store, get it home and it sure eats up a lot of deck/yard real estate

Poor Support

Bought this grill and had it assembled at store, big mistake. Assembler dinged panels, did not connect sear burner orifice. Grill needs to be used with natural gas in order to have enough heat. Good luck trying to get the conversion kit to do this."
