Why Buy a Made in the USA Outdoor Appliance like Alfresco?
At The BBQ Depot, We define Alfresco as one of the BEST Luxury Outdoor Appliances Built in the USA!
Creating the Outdoor Kitchen
Alfresco is defined as in the Open Air, we define it as Outdoor Luxury. They created this brand in the year 2000 with the desire to bring the quality, products and features professional chefs demand to the backyard. While several high-end grill lines existed by this time, no one had created the complete line of products necessary to build a true open air kitchen. Alfresco changed that.
As the heart of any open air kitchen, designing a professional-level grill was the first priority. The use of all type 304 18-8 stainless steel was obvious, but 30+ plus years of experience designing and building equipment for some of the nation's largest restaurant and hotel chains led to some choices that were less obvious.
First, nearly every seam is welded and polished, as mechanical fasteners tend to loosen over time.
A unique dual-row, dual-port burner was designed with an industry-leading exclusive, high-heat stainless steel, which enables the burner to carry a lifetime warranty.
The Sear Zone infrared system was developed, bringing the intense searing power of a commercial infrared broiler to the home.
And understanding the importance of appearance to the residential customer, the grill features large radiused corners and extensive hand-polished accents.
Great Grilling = High Heat The key to perfectly grilled food is instant carmelization, which seals in juices for tender, moist and flavorful food.
The ALXE grill has been engineered to deliver the intense, even heat needed to achieve perfect results, with the control and flexibility needed for all kinds of food.

Why Do We Love Alfresco?
This is a True Story.... In 2002, we were asked if we could service a grill that was given to handyman by the grill owner who had a winter home on the bay in Miami Beach. He had stated that the grill rolled into the bay and sat in the Ocean water all summer long. We asked him to bring this grill to our shop to look at. The Brand was Alfresco and the Model was an AGBQ 54" all grill. We could not believe the exterior of the grill was in amazing condition. We were able to restore the exterior with stainless steel cleaner. There was minor surface rust but no pitting.
We pulled seaweed from the inside of the grill and only had to replace the 9v battery spark generators.
We could not believe that a grill could sit in salty water for months and not corrode. We knew we had to carry this grill and the rest is history....
The Alfresco Grill is the most thoughtfully engineered grill on the market. It is the easiest grill have ever repaired!
Is Alfresco worth the money? 100% yes! Purchasing a Made in the USA gives you many benefits (besides supporting the country we live in!)
1. Quality Standards often NOT found in imported grills. We see shoddy manufacturing in imports everyday we fix and service these types of grills. You cannot have quality control when your manufacturer is thousands of miles away.
2. Access to repair parts. This is another issue we face daily with imports. Do you have a grease tray for my grill? Often NO on imported grills! Do you have vales? Again, too often its no.
Why invest in a grill that the manufacturing is subcontracted and the accessibility or availability in important parts is no.
You will not have these issues with Alfresco! You will always be able to attain Alfresco Replacement Parts!
There are cons with every grill on the market. Alfresco has some procedures we do not like. They outsource their warranty through ADCO which we feel is a BIG mistake. This greatly lowers the service. Other than that... it is our only gripe.
