I've had a Broilmaster for several years, replaced the burners once. I guess in my mind I would classify it as OK, but next time I'd buy a higher quality product. Even the Weber that I replaced with the Broilmaster was a better grill.

I was given a Broilmaster (aluminum body) for a house warming present when I bought my place in '95... I have rebuilt the entire unitpiece by piece as needed over the last 12 years, switched out what wasn't stainless etc... I live on the water (saltwater), I would highly recommend them to anyone. Parts are easy to buy online and reasonable.

My only complaint is that with NG it doesn't seem to get as hot as my LP Gas DCS grill (which I think is probably the case with any brand).

The burner system in the Broilmaster I have is basically the stamped burners you find in most low-end grills. Granted they're made of a low grade stainless, which is a better material than the steel that real low-end grills employ, but that burner style is prone to hot spots as they deteriorate. My burners lasted ~ 3 years even though it's covered when not in use. Also, the grill lid on mine is powder coated green color. That faded very quickly and made the grill look older than it was.
If I were to do again today, I'd spend more money and get a grill with cast bronze burners and decent grade stainless steel construction.

I sell the Broilmaster grills along with Magic Fire (all stainless) and Broilking. The Broilmaster grills are very nice and as was mentioned earlier the parts are very easy to obtain. The Broilking is a nice, cheaper alternative but do not have a grill that is totally stainless. If you are going to be using this grill near a saltwater environment I highly recommend spending the extra money and buying something that is entirely stainless. The stainless grill is the only one I have ever owned and not had any issues with in the saltwater environment. If you decide to buy a Broilmaster you will be very happy with it.
