​Alfresco ALXE Review - Under the Hood

Alfresco ALXE 30" Grill

Alfresco manufactures the worlds finest outdoor equipment. Established over 15 years ago, they have been redefining the Luxury outdoor appliance market ever since. They are responsible for designing and engineering other well known brands in the marketplace including, Dynasty, Solaire and Vintage Grills. As well as, the original founder of Lynx Grills

The introductory series was the AGBQ Grill, the BBQ brought the commercial quality appliance outdoors. The grill utilized a battery operated ignition and had an innovative air curtain behind the control panel that assisted on keeping the knobs cool (this feature still exists today). The grill was a first in offering 27,500 BTU's per burner which also still exists in their product line today.

Their was a 30" builder grill which was a basic 2 burner grill, a 30" grill with rotisserie, 42" and 56".

Consistently innovating, Alfresco introduced the LX2 grill which was the first grill of its kind to have a chain driven rotisserie motor that was built in the firebox. Until recently (with Twin Eagles), there has been no other grill to have this feature. The grill came in a 30", 42" and 56" and then a 36" was introduced when the second series of the LX2 was introduced.

The first series LX2 had a battery ignition as well as a briquette tray where the ceramic briquettes just sat on the tray. The second series LX2 introduced the electronic ignition and a locking briquette tray.

The look of the AGBQ and LX2 were very similar and the major distinction was the internal or external rotisserie motor. The burner also had a design change. There is a support bracket that hold the burner in place at the back of the firebox in the LX2 whereas there was a support bar attached to the burner with peg that secured it in place in the AGBQ. 

The major design change came with the ALXE. Offering a more sleek and sophisticated look, the ALXE redefined true outdoor luxury.

Alfresco ALXE Grills come in five models - 30”, 36”, 42”, 56” all Grill and a 56” with an integrated side burner.
