The Bottom Line
This gas grill is where Brinkmann starts getting closer to a good grill. Without all the extras and stainless steel, this is a basic grill that is close to being worth the price. Typically of these style of grills, the internal components are thin and lightweight, meaning that they won't last very long, but it just might be long enough for you to get your money's worth.

Guide Review - Brinkmann Professional 3-Burner Model# 810-3330-S
This model has been discontinued.
The Brinkmann 3-Burner at Home Depot for 2012 is a basic and inexpensive gas grill. Coming in around $170USD the only feature this grill has is a basic 12,000 BTU side burner.
The construction is simple and the materials are cheap. If you are looking for a basic burger burner, then this isn't a bad choice.
The limiting factor here is the heat output. With 36,000 maximum BTUs under 416 square inches of primary grilling space, this isn't a powerful grill. Add to this the lightweight porcelain coated steel wire cooking grates and you don't have a lot of heat transfer.
What heat you do get isn't very even and this grill will give you some flare-up issues. Learn to deal with this and you will be able to do some basic grilling without too much trouble.
