Twin Eagles 42" Outdoor Kitchen

One of the most popular sizes in Outdoor Built-in Grills is the 42". This is because these are large and powerful grills are great for the frequent entertainer.

There are few manufacturers (Made in the USA) that design this size in their product line up. These Brands include : Alfresco, Lynx, Sedona, Twin Eagles and Solaire. 

This grill is a great size for larger families and those that cook outdoors often.

In all of these Grills you can get all open (blue) flame burners, a combination of a sear burner and open flame and with Lynx and Solaire you can have all infrared.

All of the Grills we mention are available in a Freestanding models if you are not in the market for a Built-in.

We chose not to include imported grills as they generally do not offer a 36" model and cannot compare in quality, safety and features of a US manufacturer.
