About 10 years ago, the appliance industry decided to follow the car business by throwing lots of numbers at shoppers. CFMs. BTUs. RPMs. Wash cycle times. Decibels. Sones. The list goes on and on and it's particulalry relevant in the grill business. I assume that the grill manufacturers believe that the purchase of a grill is typically handled by a male, so they started to tout BTU's burner output as if they were pitching a muscle car's ability to go 0-60 in a short period of time. 

I'm here to tell you not to fall for that nonsense. 

I have two grills in my burn pit right now, a DCS, rated at 25,000 btu's per burner, and an Alfresco rated at 28,500 btus. When you light them up, there is no comparison in terms of who is giving off more heat. The DCS, going back to the muscle car analaogy, is quite simply the Ford Torino of the grill world!

The below video will take a more in depth look at the heat output of the DCS BH136RN grill versus the Alfresco ALXE series of grills. If you have any questions please contact me directly via email or call us at 1-800-966-2878.
