Fire Magic vs Lynx vs Twin Eagles Brand Comparison

Fire Magic vs. Lynx vs. Twin Eagles - Which U.S. Made Grill will you Build-in?

Choosing which Grill Brand to sell can be an overwhelming decision. Number one decision has to be: buy a USA-Made product from a manufacturer with a longstanding imprint in the market. In this post we will compare three luxury grill brands: Fire Magic vs Lynx vs Twin Eagles.

FireMagic vs Lynx vs Twin Eagles Grill Comparison

Each of these brands have a longstanding footprint in the outdoor appliance industry - RH Peterson (Fire Magic) having been the longest in business.

As you can see in the illustration, there are similar features with all three brands. The most distinct is burner style. These are very different within the brands. All three brands have an extensive collection of outdoor kitchen components and accessories. There are some aesthetic differences but all three are beautifully designed and engineered.

Luxury Grill Features


Each of these brands use a different burner style. Fire Magic uses a heavy duty cast stainless "E" burner, Lynx has a cast ceramic burner and Twin Eagles has a stainless U. We prefer either the cast stainless or cast ceramic as it provides better heat retention and radiation.

Cooking Grates

These differ from Lynx vs Twin Eagles and Fire Magic. Lynx uses a cylindrical rod grate while Fire Magic has a Diamond Sear and Twin Eagles has a hexagon-shaped. What we love about the Diamond Sear is these grates have a smooth flat top with each bar measuring over .35” wide at the top. More food to surface contact. Food cooks faster and more evenly!

Heat Distribution

Fire Magic uses a Flavor Grid (which can double as a multi-fuel source by using either wood or charcoal directly on the grids) and both Lynx and Twin Eagles use a Briquette Tray System. We do prefer the ceramic briquettes for their even heat radiating ability but being that Fire Magic has the Cast "E" Burner, you will get great radiating heat below the flavor grids.

The ignition Hot Surface in all three.


Warranties are similar across all three of these luxury grill lines.

One feature you cannot get on any other grill except Fire Magic is the optional Magic View Window. This allows you to see your foods grilling without lifting the hood and letting the heat out. It's made of heat-resistant transparent ceramic glass and is designed to operate at temperatures up to 1,400°F!

Which Brand do you choose?

Fire Magic is manufactured by RH Peterson. They also manufacture AOGReal Fyre Gas Logs and American Fyre Designs. Fire Magic grills were one of the first built-in residential grills to enter the outdoor living space. They have been manufacturing grills for decades.

Fire Magic offers six series of grills : Echelon, Aurora, Choice, Legacy, Electric and Charcoal. They have many outdoor kitchen accessories to choose from.

Lynx was one of the first manufacturers to bring commercial quality grilling to the outdoor residential market. They have been manufacturing grills since the late 90's. They were founded by Dale Seiden (who also created Alfresco Grills). Lynx has been at the forefront of innovation for decades. They also offer an impressive line of outdoor kitchen appliances and accessories from griddles to pizza ovens to drawers and drawers. This Line is truly a Professional Chef's dream.

You cannot go wrong with all three. We must say that the customer service you will receive from both Fire Magic and Lynx is Truly Top Notch and should be given the price you pay . In our experience, Fire Magic greatly leads the pack with their technical service knowledge. These guys are extremely well trained and helpful! If you need any assistance with Lynx Grills, we are the experts in this brand. We can troubleshoot almost everything on that grill.
