Design

Outside of the sides, the control panel and various places with silver detail this grills design is all black with a shiny gloss that looks great even against the primarily stainless steel competition. The shape resembles a giant tool box right down to the double doors that open to reveal a spacious cabinet. You can not have a good grill without a good base though an this one brings the mobility of four wheels complete with locking mechanisms for extra stability though they are of the plastic variety as opposed to the caster wheels found on high end models.

The stainless steel side arms fold down for easy storage locking in to either position with speed and stability. The highlight of this grills design other than the layered approach Broil King brings to their grills is the black color scheme that brings a unique look to a grill with stainless steel parts.
