All other specifications are the same; 1,050 square inches of cooking surface, four burners, each capable of producing up to 18,000 BTU (for a combined total of 72,000 BTU) plus a 10,000 BTU infrared rotisserie kit.
Each burner is a commercial kitchen-style H-pattern model built from 304 stainless steel, guaranteeing long-term durability even at maximum heat.
