There is no greater pleasure for a homeowner than inviting over some friends and family on the weekend and grilling up some delicious meat. That is why the market for family grills has exploded, especially with the growth of online shopping. There are many models available out there, with different shapes and sizes, various functions, material, and of course, different price ranges.

It is sometimes difficult to navigate this cornucopia of choice, so you have to filter out a vast majority of the grills on offer according to some criteria. Today, the according to which we will be writing this review are size, ease of use, and quality. In those three categories, not many grills out there can beat the Lion Premium grill.

The Basics

The Lion Premium Propane grill is aimed at consumers who are looking for a high-end grill with all the added functionality that can be crammed into a single unit. With that in mind, let us go over some of the features of this grill in more detail.

Firstly, the Lion Premium is quite a large grill, and it can boast a cooking surface of 830 square inches. That means you can cook an entire garden party’s worth of meat all in one go, and that sort of efficiency is well worth paying a premium for.

The Lion Premium is a propane grill, as evident in the very name, there are good and bad sides of a propane grill. The good sides have to do with the ease of use offered by propane grills. You just attach your grill to a propane tank, and it will hold the temperature you set it at indefinitely, or at least until the propane tank runs out. To note, Lion does make a variety of natural gas grill options if propane doesn’t tickle your fancy.

On the other hand, many charcoal lovers swear that the charcoal provides a unique smokey taste that you simply cannot get when you are using a propane grill. Furthermore, charcoal grills are arguably a bit easier to transport, since you don’t have to worry about gas lines or propane tanks. Then again if you love both charcoal and propane opt for a hybrid grill.

If you feel that the ease of use offered by a propane grill is the right fit for your needs, then this grill is for you. It is made of a solid and high-quality stainless steel, which means that it can last you for many years, and also that it is resistant to corrosion. That is especially important because meat juices can accumulate and ruin lower end grills in only a couple years’ time.

The other features of this grill include a rotisserie element for cooking whole chickens or turkeys, or if you want something more exotic, pre-packed gyros or kebab mixes. Furthermore, it also features an infrared side burner and a heating element. The grates are also made of a high-quality stainless steel for extra durability and ease of cleaning.

The Pros and Cons

All products have both the good and the bad sides to them, and we aim to give you all the information you need to make up your mind as to whether they are the right fit for you or not. With that in mind, we have compiled this easy to use list of pros and cons, for your perusal.

The Pros

  • Quality construction: This grill is made using high end, heavy duty stainless steel, and that allows it to last you a lifetime with the proper care. Furthermore, all of the heating elements and additional features are made to be durable and reliable. That includes all of the burners, the rotisserie, and all other elements.
  • Powered by propane: This can really be a pro or a con, depending on who you ask, but we have decided to add it to the pros list simply because it bolsters the ease of use and the reliability offered by this grill.

The Cons

  • The Price: As with any high-end product, the only real downside to buying this grill is that it costs a pretty penny. However, if you can save up the money to get this grill, we guarantee you won’t regret it, and it will pay off in the long run.

My dad is a true mans man, and has owned a number of grills. Ranging from gas to charcoal. Growing up with him allowed me to see what different types of rubs, spices, brines, etc went into making the best BBQ. Although my dad was a truck driver, and I had a degree in Information Technology I knew that I wanted to do something about grilling and our recipes.  That’s where Barbeque Smoked comes in.
