This is the Best Grill I Have Ever Owned!

“Replaced my old 30″ grill with the Lion 32″ natural gas grill. This is the best grill I have ever owned, and I have owned many. First of all, the quality of this grill is outstanding, it is truly substantial. The sheet metal feels really solid and the craftsmanship is equal to and surpasses the higher end grills. One of the top considerations for me was total cost of ownership. Replacement parts for this grill are typically 1/2 or 1/3 of the major brands. So far it has required very little maintenance. It cooks Filet Mignon better and faster than my previous grills. Chicken also comes out more evenly cooked, more juicy and tasty. Temperature is different with each grill and with the Lion I have had to experiment to understand the settings. I have found that once you experiment, you will find that you can get the grill to hold virtually any temperature. I can run the rotisserie at 375F steady which is perfect for cooking whole chickens. Overall this is a great grill for the price.”

Lion – Only the Best – How We Construct Our Grills!


Our grills and products at Lion Premium Grills are constructed from 16 gauge 304 stainless steel. What are the benefits to using this grade of stainless steel and why do we use it in our manufacturing process? Before we delve into that, let’s first go over what stainless steel is and why it’s used in our process.

Simply put, stainless steel is an alloy of chromium, nickel, and iron. The combination of these various metals and elements creates a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. It is called stainless due to the fact that the properties of this metal are rust resistant. Chromium is known for its hardness and is what makes stainless steel highly resistant to corrosion and discoloration. Nickel is a high luster metal that is also known for its high corrosion resistance. Austenite is a nonmagnetic solid solution of carbon in iron that is used in making corrosion-resistant steel. Stainless steel by definition resists corrosion but not all stainless steel is created equal; in fact, the level of corrosion resistance varies and is dependent on various factors in the manufacturing process such as temperature, exposure to oxygen, and the chemical composition of the metal. Slight variations in the chemical composition can create huge variations in the quality of the stainless steel.


Here’s a great close-up of our L75000 grill that showcases the high quality of the 304 grade 16 gauge stainless steel we utilize in all of our grill products and accessories. The griddle, grill knobs, adornments, cooking grates, and everything else in this picture is constructed from this high grade stainless steel. At Lion Premium Grills we cut no corners. We strive to create only the highest quality products on the market today.


The gauge describes the thickness of the stainless steel itself. The lower the gauge, the thicker and heavier the stainless steel is. A heavier gauge can prevent warping, bowing, and denting of the metal. Heavier is not always better though as sometimes this prevents the welding and forming of said stainless steel during manufacturing. The 16 gauge stainless steel we use is perfect as it maintains heaviness and durability, but also allows us to shape the steel during manufacturing for our grills and products. It is perfect for the high quality we demand.

304 is the grade of the stainless steel we use. It is comprised of at least 8% nickel and is used for its ability to provide an extremely high level of corrosion resistance as well as the ability to maintain the capacity of the metal to be welded, shaped and formed during the manufacturing process. This is highly important for design purposes as well as durability and quality.


Other grills may prove to be susceptible to rust, damage and corrosion due to cost cutting corners that other manufacturers may take. The grills will just not last. In contrast, we use only the highest quality of gauge and grade to maintain the highest standards possible for our luxury grills and products. Quality of construction is of the utmost importance at Lion Premium Grills and the methods and quality of stainless steel we use is the basis for these standards and why we use 16 gauge 304 stainless steel!

Lion Premium Grills Featured Recipe: Lemon Garlic Grilled Shrimp

For our October 2023 edition we have another fantastic grilled seafood recipe. We are going to shine a spotlight on a dish that is absolutely amazing as well as being quite easy to prepare. Check out the recipe below for instructions.

Preparation Time – 20 minutes

Cooking Time – 5 minutes


12 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup canola oil
10 cloves garlic
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground fennel seed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 stick unsalted butter
1 large lemon, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon chopped tarragon leaves
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves, plus sprigs for garnish
1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves, plus extra for garnish


Put the shrimp in a large baking dish. Combine the canola oil, garlic, red pepper flakes and fennel seed in a small food processor and process until the garlic is somewhat paste-like. Pour this mixture over the shrimp and let them marinate for 30 minutes.
Light your Lion grill to high heat. Strain the shrimp from the marinade and season them with salt and black pepper, to taste. Grill the shrimp on both sides until they are slightly charred and just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. (Chef’s note: They can be left slightly undercooked since they will cook longer in the butter sauce.) Transfer the shrimp to a plate. Melt the butter in a large saute pan set over the grates of the grill. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, tarragon and thyme leaves and cook for 30 seconds. Add the shrimp and cook, tossing once, about 1 minute. Finish with the parsley and adjust the seasonings, if necessary. Transfer the shrimp to a serving platter and garnish with thyme and parsley.
