    I’ve just been given a 3-burner Broil King!

    Not sure what model it is. I don’t really care. I don’t need a gasser, but it is always nice to get something free.

    It needs a good cleaning. The grates are fine and the burner tubes work okay, but all the flavorizer bars need to be replaced: 3 sets, $20 each. I didn’t check the ignition.

    I’ll post photos when I get it home. Probably Tuesday.

    Free is a very good price.
    Happy grilling to you and BBQ too

      Looks like it’s a Signet 320. Flavor bars are $10 each.

        very nice - i love my broil king (i have a 4 burner, forget the model - might be a baron?). if everything else works, that's a great deal even if you have to replace some parts.

              Does anybody see any pictures of this alleged grill? Pictures on Tuesday?? Would you also like a hamburger today? Perhaps one you would gladly pay for on Tuesday?

              If it is in fact real, then congratulations on the new cooker!

                  Free is good.
                  Give it a good cleaning and put a few cooks under its belt then you can decide whether to dump a few bucks into it with replacement parts.
                  At free a $50-60 investment isn't so hard to swallow.

                    The flavorizer bars are toast, they will need to be replaced regardless. Everything else is shop vac and simple green.

                    Updated. I finally got a chance to look at it closely. According to BK those flavor bars are fine with the rust on them. The grates just need to be cleaned.

                    You can see in this next shot that the channel that holds the drip tray for the grease is rusted away, as was the drip channel tray itself. But it looks like that part has been superseded by the use of disposable aluminum trays, 6”x14”. Those should be pretty easy to find and fit, I think. in fact, I could probably use a couple smaller trays that I already have.

                    So I think it needs some Simple Green, a brush, maybe some plastic trim detailer from the automobile side of the garage, and it’s ready to go!

                      A little meat drippin on the rust will sure fix it.

                          I spent some time working on it today. It fires up, and all burners light, but it won’t get hot. It tops out at about 250°.

                          I’m not going to spend any money here. It could be the tubes need to be cleaned, I’ll run a pipe cleaner through it and see what happens. But if it needs a regulator I’m ditching it, $63 and 1-3 month wait. I’d rather have a griddle.

                          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                          Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
