Things To Love:
This DCS grill is a high-powered machine, producing incredible cooking performance. The DCS Series 7 Traditional gas grill features continuous spark ignition, and is powered by 304-grade stainless steel U-shaped burners that are capable of producing a wide temperature range from 300 degrees, to an intense 1,100 degrees. While DCS tests and adjusts every burner at the factory, each DCS grill offers a low flame setting adjustment, allowing you to manually adjust each burner valves low setting to ensure you have the widest temperature range possible.

DCS is unique in that it includes ceramic rods beneath the grates, spaced closely together and covering pretty much the entire grilling surface, to provide an even-cooking surface. Also, the ceramic rods greatly reduce flare-ups by vaporizing grease and delivering it back to your food as smoke.

DCS has an innovative, patented Grease Management System that channels grease safely into the grease tray that begins with the unique double-sided 304-grade cast stainless steel cooking grates. One side of the grates is curved, offering an ideal surface for delicate foods such as vegetables or fish, while the other side has grooves that channel grease away from your food, and down into the grease tray, making clean up easier while reducing flareups.

The DCS definitely flexes its muscle when it comes to rotisseries as well. The grill includes a rear ceramic infrared burner and heavy-duty rotisserie kit, powered by a water-proof motor capable of impressively turning up to 50 lbs of food. The motor also features a handy built-in grill light to light up your cooking surface.

Another cool feature you'll find on the DCS Series 7 is the built-in smoker box with dedicated burner that helps to add that great smoky flavor to your food. The smoker box is sealed, allowing you to add anything from wood chips to liquids, such as wine, and the box is covered and perforated, allowing just the right amount of smoke to escape into your food.

DCS stands behind their grills, offering a lifetime warranty on the grill, along with a two-year on-site labor warranty, which is one of the best offered in the industry.

Things To Consider:
While the ceramic radiant rods are great for producing even heat across the grilling surface, they are also breakable, and might need replacing at some point. If they break it will usually be due to dropping something on them, like a cooking grid.
