Two Independent Ovens

The Imperial Xl also comes with two independent cooking ovens that allow you to grill two totally different entrees at different temperatures. Whereas the large deep oven will allow you to fit a large amount of your barbeque favorites, the smaller oven has heavy duty reversible cast iron cooking grids that make it ideal for preparing side dishes and creating grill marks.

The Imperial XL gas grill is also with a natural gas option. And since natural gas is increasingly becoming common in gas grills today, Broil King were wise enough to include this option.

Flav-R-Wave System

What’s more, the Imperial XL gas barbecue grill will enhance your grilling experience thanks to its stainless-steel Flav-R-Wave system that is tasked with providing superior heat distribution, protecting the burners, and vaporizing drippings for magnificent barbecue flavor and taste. As juice from the grilling food drops, the Flav-R-Wave catches it and vaporizes it into flavorful and tasteful smoke.

Other Features

Other features on the Imperial XL grill include two pull-out utility drawers and a tall pull-out drawer for storing grilling utensils, an easy to read deluxe Accu-Temp temperature gauge that probes deep into the oven to give you more accurate temperature reading, and built-in oven lights that allow you to grill your favorite delicacies any time of the day.
