    Get to Know Lynx Grills

    Since 1996, Lynx grills have been making grills that raise the bar for outdoor cooking appliances. The dedicated team of stainless steel experts that created the Lynx line of grills have created a line of grills that fill the need for high-end, exceptional quality outdoor kitchen appliances. With more than 30 years of combined experience, the makers of Lynx grills are dedicated to making the best grills and smokers on the market.

    Lynx is really the leader in grilling innovation. They have developed features for their grills and smokers that you just won’t find on any other brand. Things like the hood assist kit, infrared burners with variable temperatures, cast brass and ceramic burners are just some of the features that separate Lynx grills from the competition. Add to that the beautiful, welded, stainless steel housing and you’ve got a package that just cannot be surpassed.

    Lynx strives to make each grill with precise engineering standards and the best materials on the market. This means that when you purchase a Lynx grill you are getting an outdoor appliance that is attractive, performs well, and will be a long lasting fixture in your outdoor kitchen.

    When you are looking for grill and appliance upgrades for your outdoor kitchen, Lynx should be at the top of your list. They have a diverse range of grilling products, all designed with longevity in mind. Lynx is known for its line of mid- to high-end grills and smokers, however they also offer the Sedona line, which is the same Lynx quality, at a more affordable price point.

    Lynx Gas Grills Line

    Lynx has been shaking up the grilling world and are constantly the leaders in innovation, creating features that are unique to the Lynx lines. Lynx grills include the first all ceramic burners, briquette flame tamers, infrared burners and lift-assist hood systems.

    Lynx provides grills in a range of prices, with a variety of features. The professional series and the Sedona series both are quality grills at a price point for every grill master. Lynx also has a line of griddles that are a versatile addition to any outdoor kitchen.

    Lynx Professional Gas Grills– The Professional series from Lynx is the top of the Lynx grill line. These grills have the most advanced features, and are built with heavy-duty, weather resistant 304 stainless steel. The Professional series is available with many combinations of the Lynx ceramic burners or the Trident infrared burners. 

    Some Lynx grills are also equipped with FlameTrak, a safety feature that lets you know when your burner has extinguished or if ignition has failed, using a LED light on the control panel. Other features that Lynx Professional grills come with include: LED lit control knobs, lift assist hoods, ceramic briquette flame tamers and of course, the Lynx limited lifetime warranty.

    Lynx Sedona Series If you still want the reliability and performance of a Lynx grill but your budget is limited, you’ll want to consider the Sedona line by Lynx. The Sedona line offers many of the same features that the Professional series comes with, but at a fraction of the price. There are some differences to be aware of, including stainless steel burners. The FlameTrak safety system is also not included on Sedona series grills.

    Lynx Asado Gas Griddles – A gas griddle is a feature that many outdoor chefs prefer over a traditional grill. A griddle allows you to cook a wider range of foods on a single appliance. The Asado griddle is Lynx’s answer for flat top grilling. The Asado features the same level of quality and innovation that you’ll find on the Professional series grills. 

    They are made from the same heavy-duty, durable 304 stainless steel, and they feature an all-clad aluminum cooktop that heats evenly. Other features from the Professional series that you’ll find the Asado flat top grill include the LED lit control knows, hot surface ignition system and the FlameTrak safety system.

After all, you want this grill to give you and your family, years of outdoor cooking and entertaining enjoyment.

    The 30-inch Sedona grill has two separate cooking areas, one that is 508 square inches, and a smaller section that is 225 square-inches. This allows you more cooking flexibility with this grill than with others.

With this grill you’ll have more than enough power to grill a perfect steak, or switch to the sear burner for seafood and veggies.

    The other features of this grill, that we love include the back lit LED control panel, 201 gauge stainless steel construction and the added shelving and storage that the cart is equipped with. We miss the rotisserie system of the Professional series, but this is a great grill, non the less.
