When only the Best will do ..... In this info-graphic we wanted to display the main feature comparison of the Top 3, Manufactured in the USA, Luxury Grill Brands - Alfresco, Lynx and Twin Eagles.
They all have some similar features and others that distinguishes each brand in the market place. Each of these brands has a long standing foot-print in the industry.
When comparing these grills, you are comparing are apples to apples. Meaning they all share the same professional commercial quality manufacturing and features and are Made in the USA (all three in California). When considering Building in a Grill, these are our top choices as they will last a lifetime (with some maintenance of course)
Below we will compare the features of these three product lines.
Burners - Both Alfresco and Twin Eagles use a Stainless Steel U shaped burner that have a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects. Lynx uses a Cordiarite Cast Ceramic Burner. This burner is super cool and unique to the market as it not only retains heat better but it is also self cleaning. You will never have to worry about clogged gas port holes as the deign of the ceramic burner conceals them from drippings. This burner is also self cleaning. Every time you heat up the grill, you are not only providing the most even and consistent heat, you are consistently cleaning the burners as well. Lynx, Alfresco and Twin Eagles all offer a limited lifetime warranty on their burners. These warranties are "limited" because they do not cover misuse or abuse. So we always recommend maintaining your burners by cleaning (excluding the Lynx Cast Ceramic Burner) them at least 2x per year.
Sear Zone (Trident) Burner - All three manufacturers offer an option to add a Caramelizing Searing Burner used worldwide from the worlds leading chefs. These burners differ in an open (blue) flame burner as you do not see any flames. It is a ceramic burner that bring intense heat fast! These burners deliver consistent heat. Windy conditions does not not effect the grilling consistency and performance as there are no flames to blow. Alfresco's Sear Zone brings steak house power and control and reaches 1500 degrees in four minutes. Lynx has a Trident Burner has instantaneous temperature control that ranges from 300-1000 degrees. With Lynx, you can add this feature at no extra charge. In addition, they are the only manufacturer to offer a lifetime warranty on their sear burner.
Ignition - All three grills require electricity to power the igniters. This is a great feature as you do not have to change batteries though you must have electricity nearby. Electrically powered igniters are proving to be more reliable than the old battery operated igniters as they remain free from corrosion. Twin Eagles and Lynx use glow plug vs an electrode. We prefer the reliability of electronic ignition. Lighting is more consistent. The glow system heats a round tube that heats up, glows orange and ignites the burner.

Heat Distribution System - All three brands use a Tray with ceramic briquettes. This is the best type of system as the briquettes retain heat, radiates flavor throughout the grill, distributes the flame more evenly thus using less gas.
Cooking Grates - Lynx and Alfresco both use heavy duty round stainless steel rod grates. Twin Eagles distinguished themselves from these with their heavy duty thick 3/8" hexagonal grates. The shape of these grates offer more mass than traditional round rod grates. In addition, the hexagonal grates have a flat side that has a greater food to surface connection allowing food to cook more evenly and more heat to get to the food.
Rotisserie Motor - This feature is what sets Alfresco and Twin Eagle above any competition, including Lynx. The motor is integrated into the firebox thus eliminating a bulky exterior rotisserie motor. They both have a chain driven design that provides consistent and uniform rotation of the spit rod. The integrated motor allows for the hood to have a more sleek design eliminating the need for a cutout for the spit rod. Twin Eagles takes this innovation one step further by adding a Rotisserie Spit Rod Storage that is conveniently located in grills drip tray handle. Lynx uses an exterior mounted rotisserie motor. This is cumbersome as you have to store the rod and motor when not in use. Making the use of the rotisserie inconvenient.
All three are Made in the USA (California) making them the highest quality outdoor cooking equipment in the market. They are the top of the line. We feel you cannot go wrong with any of these companies. They also all have an extended array of products that will complimentary your grill including Side Burners, Power Burners, Pizza Ovens, Griddles (Alfresco uses an optional Accessory that is used with the Versa Burner), Refrigeration and more. This will enable you to plan and design a outdoor kitchen of your dreams.
All three brands have an affordable luxury Brand if you were not needing professional chef quality. Alfresco has Artisan, Lynx has Sedona and Twin Eagles has Delta Heat. What we love about the Sedona by Lynx line is, the design of the Grill will compliment any of Lynx Products if you wanted to mix and match your outdoor equipment. This may help accomplish any budgetary requirements. With Artisan and Delta Heat you cannot do this.
It's really going to boil down to aesthetics. Which one will compliment your decor the best. For example, Lynx and Twin Eagles use Beautiful Blue LED from Control Panel Lighting, while Alfresco uses a a more relaxing Amber color.
Lastly, Alfresco does include a grill cover with all of their grills which we believe at the price of theses products, they all should.
Overall, each of these manufactures lead the market in the engineering, innovation and design. They al have some features that differentiates themselves from the other.
Lynx leads their competitors with outstanding customer service. They cannot be beat in this category!
