Lion Premium Grills Newsletter – No. 36, September 2016
Greetings and welcome to Lion Premium Grill’s monthly newsletter. This is our September 2016 issue which marks the 36th edition of our newsletter. It’s incredible that September is already here and the beautiful summer season is winding down. No matter, this is still primetime grilling season and Lion Premium Products has you covered in all respects when it comes to outdoor entertainment, from our luxury gas grill line to our assortment of side burners, bbq islands, bar centers, and more. If you’re looking for something massive we have you covered with our range of luxurious outdoor kitchens and islands; if you need portability but still want a premium grilling unit we also have you covered.
This is a fun issue that we’ve prepared for you this month, with a great slow grilled chicken recipe that leaves your chicken juicy and packed with an unbelievable flavor profile. We also have a step by step look at a new backyard installation featuring our grill and assorted products. In addition to other features, we also take a closer look at the L90000 grill cart. Again, thank you all for your support and we hope you enjoy this latest issue!
Exceptional BBQ Grill
“I felt the need to write this review as a way to extend my satisfaction with the Lion 40-inch grill. The aesthetics actually caught me off guard when I saw this up close and personal. I did not expect it to look as good as it does and it definitely has that “solid” feel to it that showcases the overall build quality. The high grade stainless steel does indeed make a world of difference. The temperature gauge, the knobs, even the logo are all tastefully done. This is not flimsy in the least and in the 5 months I’ve owned this grill it’s held up exceptionally well. The 5 burners and 90,000 btus are very powerful and make for an excellent grill in terms of most anything — grilling vegetables, steaks, chicken, and seafood is a breeze. Clean up is quite easy as well, and thus far I have yet to encounter any real issues or malfunctions with this grill.
I’m very impressed with this product.”

Lion Premium Grills: Upgrade Your Backyard!
One of our favorite newsletter features are backyard upgrades and transformations laid out in a step by step fashion. We always find it exciting to see a gradual transformation from before the installation to the end results; it clearly lays out just how much visual appeal our products have as well as the way it can basically define your entire outdoor set-up by acting as an eye-popping centerpiece. Not only will our grills and islands provide that “wow” factor but they are also crafted with the utmost precision and expertise, providing high end functionality in addition to sleek, beautiful design. We hope you enjoy our latest before and after feature below. Thank you!
As with any good before and after feature, we’re going to start out with an image of the prepped and empty patio before any outdoor kitchen / bbq island has been moved in. As such, there’s not much to say about this except that the designated spot looks to be absolutely perfect with foliage, plenty of shade, and space to comfortably traverse. The electrical box, gas line, and other assorted hook-ups are visible above which is essential if you’re running natural gas instead of liquid propane as your desired fuel choice. This spot will house a beautiful three piece island and custom fire pit.
In this second image you can already see the dramatic difference that is made by adding the outdoor kitchen. It actually seems to widen the outdoor space as well as adding depth to the surroundings by adding verticality with the gorgeous raised backpiece on one island sectional. There are posts on the island section just parallel to the aforementioned piece; this will serve as the support for the direct covered patio addition to this outdoor kitchen. This is a stunning unit in the making. The base looks to be standard stucco with our luxury porcelain tiles making up the counter. As you can see, the island bases feature double doors as well as a door and drawer combination unit. These come with protective wrap that protects these pieces from scratches or any type of damage that comes with the territory (the wrapping is removed upon completion of the installation). The cut outs for the Lion Premium BBQ grill, stainless steel sink, and sideburner are visible above.

Lion Premium Grills Featured Recipe: BBQ Grilled Oregano Chicken
Hello, welcome to our monthly featured recipe! Each and every month we showcase a delicious recipe that you can recreate to perfection on your Lion BBQ grill. For September we’re going to take a look at an absolutely mouthwatering recipe — grilled oregano chicken. The trick here is that we slow cook this over medium heat which leaves a beautiful char as well as maintaining a wonderfully juicy and moist chicken. The marinade adds stunning levels of flavor. This is a fan favorite around our office and we believe you’ll most likely love it just as much. Enjoy!
1 (3 1/2–4-pounds) chicken, halved lengthwise
10 oil-packed anchovy fillets (chop finely)
4 garlic cloves (grate finely)
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 cups green olives, plus 1/2 cup brine reserved
1/2 cup olive oil
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh oregano, plus leaves for serving
Vegetable oil (for grilling)
Tomatoes in Chile-Fennel Oil (tomatoes in just chile oil is fine as well)
To start things off, take your anchovies, olive oil, lemon juice, and the reserved olive brine and toss these ingredients in a medium sized bowl. After thoroughly mixing your ingredients, season the mix with kosher salt and pepper. Take half of the mixture and separate it into a large resealable bag. Add the chopped oregano and onion to the bagged mixture. Refrigerate the remaining anchovie mix.
Take your chicken and season it with the salt and pepper. After seasoning, take the chicken and add it to the bag with the anchovie, oregano, and onion mixture. Lightly toss to coat the chicken. Marinate the chicken for anywhere from four to twelve hours.
Once you’re ready, prep your grill by turning it on and setting it to roughly medium heat. Prior to this, grease the grates with vegetable oil to prevent any sticking. Once you’re ready, take your marinated chicken out of the bag; let any excessive marinade drip back into the bag (this is all personal preference). Start skin side up and grill the chicken for thirty to forty-five minutes. During this period of time, turn the chicken occasionally. You’ll notice a beautiful char the chicken once it’s done. Please make sure that it’s cooked completely through.
Take the separated anchovie mixture that you placed in the bowl and add some olives to the mix; crush them roughly into the mix and add your lemon zest. Take your tomatoes in chile oil and ladle onto plate; place your chicken on top and add your anchovie and olive mixture to your desired preference with oregano leaves to garnish.
The Best Grill We’ve Ever Had the Pleasure to Own
“The Lion 32 inch grill is, without a doubt, the best grill we have ever had the privilege to own or cook on. It is easy to see the attention to detail and the quality components used to make this grill. We added the optional ceramic flame tamers and this grill is an absolute delight to cook on.”
