How to Find Alfresco Grill Parts (and Grills)

Alfresco 42" Built in Grill

Alfresco grills represent some of the best quality the market has to offer. Known for their longevity and durability, Alfresco grills are favorites among backyard grillers and professional chefs alike.

Even the most durable and luxury grills require some routine maintenance and overtime, an occasional replacement part. In fact, if you properly care for your Alfresco gas grill, briquette trays, for example, should last at least 5 years and perhaps even 10 for those who meticulously clean their grill.

At BBQ Depot, we stock a wide variety of Alfresco grill parts, and we even stock parts for discontinued Alfresco grills.

And, if you need something that’s not in our inventory of Alfresco BBQ grill parts, don’t worry—as an authorized service representative for Alfresco, we can order any part you need.

To locate your grill model and serial number, pull your grease try forward and look for the information sticker under the tray. If your sticker has warn off, do not worry, we can help you figure it out! 

Here are some common replacement parts, Alfresco’s three grill series, and why an Alfresco grill could be the perfect tool for your next backyard barbecue.

Replacement Alfresco Grill Parts

While we’re breaking Alfresco replacement parts down into popular categories here, remember that there are some parts that aren’t easily placed into categories. If you don’t see something you need, please search the website using the search bar at the top of the page, or give us a call. We can help you find what you’re looking for.

Alfresco Burners

Alfresco Grill Replacement U Burners

Alfresco offers two main types of burners — the stainless steel U-burner and the infrared sear burner. Alfresco grills contain at least one of each, and many models feature both.

When you’re shopping for a replacement burner for your Alfresco grill, take note of your grill series. Being aware of your grill series will help ensure you purchase the correct replacement parts.

Alfresco’s first series — the AGBQ grill — uses a bracket on the bottom of the firebox to hold the burner in place, while Alfresco’s later models — the ALX2 and ALXE series — have a bracket at the back of the firebox. Therefore, the grill you own determines whether or not you need to purchase a burner with a replacement bracket. Note : A AGBQ burner will work on the ALX2 & ALXE grills. This is because the back of U sits in a higher bracket at the back of the grill. You would just ignore the bottom bracket.

The BBQ Depot currently stocks the following burners and burner-related parts for Alfresco grills:

  • ALX2 and ALXE main burner assembly (U-burner)
  • AGBQ main burner assembly (U-burner)
  • AGBQ, ALX2, and AXLE infrared sear zone burner
  • Smoker Burners for all Series
  • AGBQ and ALX2 infrared sear zone burner screen

We offer both original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and aftermarket parts where available. While you can save some money on aftermarket parts, they’re not always the best choice for your grill. This is because not all parts are available in the aftermarket so you do not want to just buy a cheap replacement. These include sear zone burners and smoker burners where OEM is your only option so keeping them clean will extend the life of these parts.

For example, one of the aftermarket aftermarket burners for the AGBQ does not come with a bracket to hold it in place. While this aftermarket burner fits perfectly in the ALX2 and ALXE models (which don’t require a burner bracket), they’re a bit wobbly in the AGBQ (see the above image).

There are (2) aftermarket AGBQ Burners that come with the bracket. The main difference between these two is one is made of 304 stainless steel and is imported and the other is Made in the USA using the same high heat metal content. We always suggest going with the USA Made Burner. You did invest in a quality product, we feel the US made burner is superior and you can use it on all the series of grills!

You can purchase any stle replacement burners from BBQ Depot.

As always, if you’re not sure how to determine which Alfresco grill parts you need, our experts are happy to help.

Alfresco Briquettes and Trays

Alfresco Briquette Tray with lock bar 510-0677

Alfresco grills feature a top-of-the-line heat distribution system made of three components:

  1. Briquette trays
  2. Ceramic briquettes
  3. Lock bars

The briquette tray sits above the U-burner, separating your grilling surface from the open flame.

In the older AGBQ model, the briquette trays have small holes on each end, with pegs inside the grill locking them into place. In the ALX2 and ALXE models, however, the briquette tray simply sits on a ledge. Looking for holes in the briquette tray you need to replace is an excellent way to determine your grill’s model.

The ceramic briquettes lay on top of the briquette tray, circulating and conserving the heat from the burner’s open flame. The briquettes also improve the flavor of your food by vaporizing drippings, creating mouth-watering aromas. All Alfresco grills use the same signature “A” briquettes.

Second Generation LX2 and ALXE Alfresco grills have locking bars that hold the briquettes in place. These bars are screwed in between each row of ceramic briquettes, and they serve two critical purposes:

  1. They keep the briquettes from moving around during grilling or transport.
  2. They make Alfresco’s self-cleaning feature possible.

With well-secured lock bars, grillers can simply remove their briquette tray, replace it with the briquettes facing down, and turn their burner on high to clean the entire surface of the system. This easy-to-clean heat distribution system is one of the best on the market. Unfortunately, these trays for the 30, 42 and 56 are only available in OEM. If you can live without the lock bars you can use the tray alone which is offered in Aftermarket. The aftermarket with locking bars is for the 36”.

Just like Alfresco replacement burners, BBQ Depot stocks both OEM and aftermarket trays and briquettes. Aftermarket briquettes are less expensive, and grillers can choose between a pack of 28 or a pack of 48. For OEM die-hards, Alfresco Briquettes are available with their signature "A" embossed in them.

Grillers can purchase replacement trays for their Alfresco and are sold individually, depending on the size of your grill and if your grill has a sear zone will determine the quantity of trays you need. Note: You do not put any trays on top of the sear zone burner.

Alfresco Cooking Grids

Alfresco sells two types of replacement cooking grids for all of its grills — standard cylindrical grates for grills with U-burners and sear zone cooking grates which are channeled for grills with infrared sear burners.

BBQ Depot stocks both varieties of grids, and we carry parts to match all four Alfresco grill sizes:

  • 30-inch
  • 36-inch
  • 42-inch
  • 56-inch

Grid prices vary significantly based on their size. We offer standard grids that range from the low $100’s not the high $300’s. Aftermarket parts represent the lower end of the spectrum, while OEM grids are pricier. Sear zone burners cost between mid to high $300’s.

Not sure which size grill you have, or which grid size will fit your grill best? Drop us a line, and we can help you find the perfect replacement for your Alfresco grill.

Alfresco Ignition Parts

Alfresco Main Burner Electrode

Alfresco’s goal has always been “providing the most refined grilling experience possible.” Motivated by forward-thinking values, Alfresco is always modernizing its grilling technologies, and its ignition systems are no exception.

Before purchasing Alfresco BBQ grill parts for your ignition system, you’ll have to do some homework about your specific grill series and model:

  • The first generation AGBQ grills used a push-button ignition powered by a AA battery. But, later models used a 9-V battery to power a two- or four-spark igniter module.
  • The ALX2 used either 9-V batteries or electronic ignition depending on the year of manufacture. Serial Numbers starting with 10-99999 & Lower used a 9 volt battery ignition while 11-00000 & Forward used an electric ignition.
  • In the ALXE, the ignition is completely electronic.

Not only do you need to determine your model, but you also have to find out which of Alfresco’s ignition systems it uses. If you removed the front control panel to reveal the ignition parts and were left scratching your head, give us a call. We can help you determine which ignition system you have and help you order the correct replacement parts.

BBQ Depot stocks countless Alfresco ignition parts, but each part generally falls into one of a few categories:

  • Igniter modules 
  • Electrodes 
  • Igniter switches 
  • Wires and wiring harnesses 
  • Igniter shields 

If you don’t see the part you need, we can order it for you — either from an aftermarket supplier or straight from the manufacturer.

Alfresco AGBQ Replacement Parts

The first Alfresco grill — the AGBQ — redefined backyard grilling. The first company to combine luxury culinary equipment with traditional grill technology, Alfresco remains at the forefront of innovative, chef-inspired grill manufacturing.

The AGBQ grill was the first to feature an exterior rotisserie, setting it apart from its contemporaries. To this day, the AGBQ is one of the most durable, easiest to repair grills on the market.

The BBQ Depot has been servicing Alfresco grills since their debut, and we’ve compiled all of our stocked parts for the AGBQ in one convenient place. If you’re not entirely sure what you’re looking for, consult our AGBQ Grill Parts Breakdown, which details all parts for every AGBQ model.

There were five AGBQ models: AGBQ-30, AGBQ-30SZ, AGBQ-42, AGBQ-42SZ, and AGBQ-56. Our parts breakdown lists the appropriate parts for each model, and if there’s more than one part option for a model, we list it. Parts include:

Alfresco ALX2 Replacement Parts

Despite forging headlong into the future of grilling, Alfresco kept the rotisserie feature on its next grill series, the ALX2. But, this new series also ushered in changes to the ignition.

There are models in the ALX2 series: Grills with serial numbers 10-99999 and lower have 9-volt battery-powered ignitions, while serial numbers 11-00000 and above feature electronic ignition.
