Dual-Tube Burners 

The Regal 490 Pro features four powerful stainless steel Dual-Tube burners that equalize the gas pressure inside the burner for a more consistent flame from front to back thus providing even cooking temperatures. Unlike other standard tubular burners, Broil King burners have been designed to allow for even heat distribution across a wide surface thus eliminating cold spots that are often responsible for most grilling problems.

The burners can generate up to 50,000 BTUs (British thermal units), and are backed by a five year warranty. 50,000 BTUs is a perfect indication that this grill is powerful enough to withstand outdoor grilling and cooking of all kinds.

Linear-Flow Control Valves 

Also, like other Broil King Regal series, the Regal 490 Pro has control valves that will realize you even flame and evenly distributed heat stress on the burner. Regal 490’s linear-flow valves with 180 degrees sensi-touch control knobs will give you the infinite heat control that will allow you to set your grill to the perfect temperature for roasting, searing, or slow grilling.

Side and Rotisserie Burners

What is more, this outdoor grill is with a side burner and a rotisserie burner that can realize up to 10000 BTUs and 15,000 BTUs respectively.

While the side burner allows you to create your favorite side dishes while grilling your main dish, the stainless steel rotisserie burner has graduated ports along its entire length ensuring the flame height is consistent for more even grilling. A heavy rotisserie kit and a super reliable electronic ignition system are also included.

Flav-R-Wave Cooking System

In addition to the intensive burners, the Regal 490 Pro is with a stainless-steel Flav-R-Wave system that keeps flow of heat even and consistent, protects the burners, and vaporizes steak drippings for remarkable flavors. As the juice from your steak drips, the Flav-R-Wave catches it and vaporizes it into flavorful and tasteful smoke. 

Other features 

Other noteworthy features on this grill include: an easy to read stainless steel thermometer with a probe that reaches deep into the oven for precise temperature readings, convenient, durable level Q leg levers that allow grillers to quickly and firmly stabilize their 490 Pros on uneven surfaces, easy access pull-out tank drawer that allows you to easily turn your propane on and off, and durable stainless steel cooking grids that guarantee remarkable heat retention.
