Fantastic Grill Features “When waiting to eat with a group of people but the cooking has to get started ahead of time, the adjustable warming rack on the grill will be the perfect little helper to prevent your meat from getting cold and simultaneously drying out. The food will still be as tasty as it was if it had just completed cooking.” For Grillmasters and Novices Alike “Many grills these days provide more than one option for cooking. The Lion Premium Grill is no different. Along with the burners there is also an infrared rotisserie back burner. The mechanics of this burner is no stranger to grill masters and enthusiasts alike, and it allows the meat to be roasted and evenly cooked while simultaneously searing the outside to prevent the loss of juices or drying of the meat.”

Lion Premium Grills – Making French Toast On a Lion Grill!
We have another great video provided to us by Frankie and Luca Russo utilizing our Lion grill to cook up some really great food.

Not only that, but he also makes chicken sausage and a berry maple syrup to accompany the french toast right on the grill. We love this one because it also showcases just how versatile our grill and accessories are; you can make practically anything outdoors on our grill. We hope you enjoy this video as much as we do!
Lion – The Benefits Of Adding An Outdoor Kitchen To Your Backyard
If you enjoy grilling on a regular basis, entertaining friends and family, or hosting parties then it may be time to think about adding a complete outdoor kitchen to your outdoor set-up. Our BBQ islands fulfill that need perfectly. Outdoor kitchens add versatility, enhance grilling functionality, and are eye catching as well. Below you’ll find some of the reasons we think that an outdoor kitchen / BBQ island may benefit you.
One of the primary benefits of adding an outdoor kitchen / BBQ island to your backyard is simple; the island attracts attention and many times functions as one of the central social areas at any party. For instance, the island to the left showcases this facet perfectly. With the host of bar stools, the step-up countertop, and more, it just makes a great spot to hang out and chat, have a drink with friends, and of course, eat! They are fantastic hubs to build the remainder of your outdoor set-up around. Outdoor kitchens are an impressive addition to any backyard.
Being visually impressive as well as pleasing to the eye is a factor that most individuals will always take into consideration. Nothing stands out more than a beautiful outdoor kitchen / island that’s stacked with extra features such as an outdoor fridge, double side burner, bar sink, drawers & doors, and more (let your imagination run wild). They add that extra depth, that extra pop and wow factor to any backyard. Not only are they extremely functional, they impress with their tremendous ability to catch anyone’s attention. There’s a sense of satisfaction to be had when you take a look at your outdoor set-up and see an object that functions wonderfully while also looking eye popping.
Built Like a Tank!
“I love grilling outdoors and I was looking to upgrade from my sturdy charcoal grill to something that looks great in addition to grilling like a champ. I came across this Lion 32″ grill and once I saw the specs and quality of the building materials I pulled the trigger and ordered one. This thing went way above my expectations and blew them out of the water. Lion created an amazing grill that is built like a tank and outputs some serious heat. I picked up a charcoal tray as well so that I can add that dimension to my cooking when I feel the need. A plus is that guests always point out how impressive this grill looks. I can recommend this to anyone that’s looking to pick up a great new grill.”

Lion Premium Grills – Superior Quality: Types of Burners and Why Lion is the Best
Burners: Types of Burners and Why Lion Beats the Competition
There is no doubt that the burners of a grill are one of the most essential components of any BBQ grill. As such, the quality of the materials that went into creating the burner are vital and when you want to maximize your grilling potential you’ll want the best. The materials used to craft grill burners run the gamut from cast brass to cast stainless steel to cast iron. The power of the burner itself is measured in BTUs; BTUs can be used as a barometer for the overall grilling power of the grill and heat generation for cooking. Again, the quality of the burners need to be factored in as well when it comes to overall longevity and performance. At Lion we utilize 304 grade cast stainless steel burners which are by far the superior model of burner created from heavy gauge stainless steel.
304 Grade Cast Stainless Steel Burners are by far the superior burner type. Cast stainless steel burners are solid pieces of metal and are not welded together which means that these burners are extremely durable and heavy duty. The 304 grade solidifies this as 304 grade is top of the line commercial grade steel. 304 grade typically consists of 10% Nickel and 18% Chromium. Cast stainless burners are also extremely resistant to rust due to the composition of the burner itself. Heat generation and longevity of these burners is also top notch. Our cast stainless burners output 15,000 BTUs apiece! Where as other materials used to create burners may be prone to warping, rusting, etc. cast stainless is not prone to those same issues at all.
It’s clear cut that cast stainless (304) is by far the best.
Other Burner Types:
Cast Iron Burners are extremely heavy duty and durable. They do tend to suffer from excessive rusting, which can happen quite quickly, and as such they need to be maintained on a regular basis by using a wire brush to remove rust flakes and other assorted debris. While heavy duty, the fact that they rust easily and fare poorly in any type of outdoor element that may produce rust (living by the ocean for example) makes them unsuitable for Lion Premium Grills.
Cast Brass Burners are also heavy duty but unlike their cast iron counterparts, cast brass burners are extremely resistant to rust. The issue with cast brass is that the heat generation may cause them to warp, bend, or sag. Cast brass burners are generally high quality but we feel that cast stainless just outperforms it in every aspect and as such we use cast stainless steel.
Stamped Stainless Steel
Stamped stainless steel are usually very low quality and make for extremely flimsy burners. They are usually made from low grade, light gauge stainless steel and are not one solid piece of metal; instead it's two pieces "stamped" together. These burners tend to be short lived. They are not made of 304 grade stainless steel, instead they are crafted from the lowest grades of steel. Avoid these at all costs.
Lion Premium Grills Featured Recipe: Grilled Lobster Tails & Spicy Citrus Butter
We’re kicking off this issue with an absolutely amazing recipe that is also incredibly easy to make — grilled lobster tails with spicy citrus butter. The flavor profiles are off the charts and while simple to make, the results are really unbelievable; this is one of our favorite recipes for sure. Lobster is great, but there is just something about grilling it that takes it to entirely new levels. Enjoy the recipe!
- 4 six ounce lobster tails (if frozen, be sure to thaw them out first)
- 5 tablespoons of softened unsalted butter
- 2 minced medium cloves of garlic
- 3/4 tablespoon of kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon Tabasco Sauce
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime zest, grated
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest, grated
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- Prepare your Lion gas BBQ grill by preheating it to medium high heat (450-475 degrees Fahrenheit).
- While letting the grill heat up, prep your lobster tails for the grill by cutting along the back of the lobsters starting at the opening of the tail to the fin of the tail.
- Clean out any undesirable matter from the split open lobster tail if necessary.
- Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet or pan over medium heat. This is the perfect situation for one of our Lion side burners.
- As the butter melts, add in the minced garlic and stir occasionally until the garlic begins to turn a golden brown.
- After the garlic and butter mixture turns a golden brown (takes roughly 2 minutes), remove the mixture from heat and transfer the sauce into a bowl. Let the mixture cool for 2-3 minutes.
- Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, lime zest, kosher salt, and Tabasco. Mix well.
- Go ahead and take your split lobster tails and brush them with the butter mixture.
- Take the lobster tails and place them on the grill; grill until the meat of the tails is lightly marked (it should take roughly 3 minutes or so).
- Dollop the remaining butter over the lobster meat and close the lid of the grill.
- Grill until the lobster meat is firm, moist, and opaque which should take 2 to 3 minutes more.
- Remove from the grill and serve warm, room temperature, or chilled as part of a lobster salad.
