Default Gas grill for outdoor kitchen, Blaze, DCS or Lynx

Planning an outdoor kitchen/patio with fireplace at the new house.

Will have natural gas grill, double side burner (separate from grill), sink and undercounter refrigerator then a Primo XL and Power Burner set maybe 16" off floor.

Options for grill at shop are Blaze, DCS and Lynx. Looking at 36" size range. Anyone with experience with these brands and can compare?

I looked at all of those and bought the DCS.

The DCS construction is really good, it gets REALLY hot and the cast stainless do season similar to a cast iron grate. I have a Kamado Joe right next to it so I really just wanted the simplest thing I could put next to it that was really good quality.

I wish it had a thermometer on the lid. I think I will add that this summer.

I have the 48" DCS.
Great quality.
It's my second one I've purchased. Don't use it much these days as most of my cooking is on the BGE

I have had a Bull for 3 years and love it. Costco sells them under the Urban Islands brand, a buddy just bought one for about $1200 and is happy.

Ditto, Ditto
In fact, I think we've only used it once all winter to make burgers and dogs for a large party. To my surprise my wife (a chef) prefers the BGE, and she lights it too.

I had a NG powered cast aluminum Char Broil (I think) for a lot of years on my upper deck and the DCS LP downstairs. It seemed to me the NG just didn't get as hot as the LP.

At that price point, I would check out the Fire Magic grills also.
It's been a while since I looked, but my recollection is that they have a better warranty than DCS, and they are made in the U.S.

Fire magic is for sure the best grill made...hands down, but they were a LOT pricier than my DCS when I bought two years ago.

I have the 32" Blaze BLZ-4. I've had it for about a year. So far so good. It gets very hot. I've had to get used to things cooking much quicker than with my previous grill.

We built an outdoor kitchen last year. We installed a gas grill and a Green Egg. I haven't used the gas grill yet. I'm just suggesting you make a spot for a Green Egg.

In the market for a gas grill as well. Price point at $700-2000ish for the right grill. Any other brand suggestions? Considering a free standing grill but also contemplating a built in for my deck area around the pool.

From your picks I would go DCS. I had a Fire Magic great grill just not as heavy duty.
DCS awesome
Currently using a Capital Grill made from the guys that started DCS. Bad to the Bone

I know that's a lot of grills but I went through a few houses in a short time - Grilling is just about as much fun as fishing

We have used an Urban Island grill for 4 years and it works great. It cost less than half of what the DCS grills run.

I had a 42" DCS at the last house and loved it would have bought another one for this house in a heartbeat but the location of this grill required one with the rotisserie motor on the left. The one I bought for here is a Summerset Alturi 42"; it's a very nice grill.
