The Bottom Line
Inexpensive gas grills have become something of a disposable item these days. Years ago you could count on a cheap gas grill standing up for several years before needing repair or replacement. Those days are largely gone, but this powerful little gas grill from Huntington has a side burner and a cast aluminum body. It last forever, but it will certainly outlast most of these cheap department store brands.

Guide Review - Huntington 2-Burner Gas Grill Model# 30040HNT
For the person shopping for a gas grill under $250USD, I recommend buying a charcoal grill. Unfortunately, most people still insist on buying a gas grill. For those I recommend something small and simple and few gas grills are simpler than this one.
The one element that makes this better than most of the comparable grills is that the cooking chamber of this one is made from cast aluminum instead of stamped and painted steel.
The burner on this gas grill is a single unit with two controls giving this model a separate left and right heating with a maximum output of 30,000 BTUs under 300 square inches of cooking space.
While the burner is thin stainless steel and likely to rust through in a few years, at this price it is probably worth it.
This model comes with a low power (10,000 BTU) side burner. If you have no need for a side burner, save a little money and get the Huntington 2-Burner Gas Grill Model# 30030HNT.
