Lion Premium Grills – Featured Customer Testimonials
So Many Uses!
“Picked up the 32″ Lion grill and man, it is really great. Super sturdy and the best part is the actual grilling. Everything from steaks to chicken cooks evenly and can be done with a nice sear in the case of the steaks. So many uses for this grill especially with the additions like the smoker box.”
-Review by Jason, Santa Fe, New Mexico – L75000 Stainless Steel BBQ Grill
Love this grill maintains set temperatures and plenty of room for cooking for lots of people or a few. This grill was easy to set in place and I like the night lights for evening grilling.

Here we see the initial process of fully assembling and setting up the custom built BBQ island pieces; the counter tops are removed from the bases and then re-set once the island is positioned properly. Notice the beautiful slate rock that comprises portions of the base. The texture, look, and feel of the rock are completely unmatched — it accents the rest of the island perfectly not to mention the quality of the actual construction.
Here’s another view of the same island, just up close and in its fully assembled state (our Lion stainless steel 32″ BBQ grill, side-burner, and double access doors are on full display). It’s quite easy to see the quality of Pro Tech’s craftmanship; the slate rock base is built to perfection as well as providing a sense of visual depth and texture — it’s a treat for the eyes that’s to be sure. The materials used are clearly of a higher quality as well. The countertop is tiered, with an additional step assembled over the main counter area. The built in fire pit adds an exquisite touch. The small details really shine here, and Pro Tech’s work is definitely unparalleled.
Let’s zoom in further to inspect this particular BBQ island by Pro Tech, especially on the countertop construction. The primary, rounded edge countertop is composed of premium granite and it shows; the shimmer and sheen is eye popping. The tiered back counter which extends above the primary top adds even more visual appeal as well as functionality, providing a substantial amount of additional space in a compact area. The small fire pit is a beautiful touch; the dimensions it adds to the unit, aesthetically — especially at night when it can be lit and fully on display — is a huge bonus.
Finally, we can pan away to the side and zoom out a bit to fully take in Pro Tech’s work on this particular island. What’s immediately noticeable are the raised design accents on the front of the island itself. The front panel is stucco, which along with the custom design, provides a gorgeous contrast to the slate rock sides of the island unit. As previously mentioned, it’s the small details which really showcase the kind of painstaking work that has gone into building this island. The customized design flourish, the tiered, extended countertop, and the custom fire pit really take this island by Pro Tech to the next level.
Let’s have a look at another one of Pro Tech’s custom BBQ islands featuring Lion Premium Grills products. This beautiful island features a built in counter top firepit and is shown equipped with our premium full bar center, 40″ L90000 grill, a side burner and more. The counter is rounded and comprised of granite, while the base is made with a rock and stucco finish. There is also an additional step built at the base of the island itself. Truly jaw dropping work by Pro Tech.
Here’s another view of the same island. In addition to the Lion Premium 5-Burner grill and accessories, you can see some of the additional details crafted into this particular island. Especially of note is the countertop fire pit which can be seen in full operation in the above photo. The Lion items such as the full bar and sink, door and double drawers and more are integrated perfectly into the island itself. The cobbled stone finish adds even more visual appeal. You can tell this is crafted at an unquestionably high level. The ridges accenting the countertop provides an additional textural touch.
Here’s a rear view of the island. The stone finish is especially eye catching, as is the raised granite countertop and fully loaded amenities. Simply put, it’s a beautiful addition, complimenting this particular backyard perfectly. It adds an entirely new dimension to this outdoor set-up, even just on a visual level. The eye can’t help but be drawn to the island itself. The quality of the build and construction is plain to see as is the perfect integration into the backyard.
