  1. Nous venons de faire l’aquisition d’un BBQ BROIL KING cela fait 4 fois que nous l’utilison et nous en sommes tres satisfait, je l’ai achete a mon mari pour ka fete des peres au mois de juin.

  2. Hi

    Just wanna confirm where the Baron S 440 broil king is assembled and manufactured. Looking to purchase a unit from the local Lowes.

    Looking forward to hear from you.


    1. Hi Robert,

      The Baron S440 is manufactured and assembled in our facility in Huntington, IN USA. Preference is given to North American suppliers where possible, but some components are sourced internationally.

  3. Hi, I bought a Baron 590LP in Canada. I was told all is made in USA/Canada. But inside the griddles says made in China (upc: 626821112410). Support told that they are made in USA but printed in China…. Kind of weird since it says Made in China for Onward….

    What is true here?

    1. Hey Ivan, all of our gas grills are built in the USA and Canada, the Baron 590LP that you purchased is built in Huntington Indiana USA in our largest facility. In that building we fabricate all of the stainless and steel parts in house from coils of raw steel. We paint and porcelain coat too. All of your plastic parts are formed in our plastic injection molding facility in Kitchener Canada and all of your aluminum parts come from our foundry in Tennessee where they are cast from liquid aluminum. We turn raw materials into the majority of your grill.

      The thermometer, electronics, handle and cooking grids are manufactured in China. Our manufacturing quality controls are stringent and we apply them to all of our facilities domestic and abroad. I hope that clarifies things for you. We have 3 very large production and warehousing facilities in the US and Canada with a dedicated domestic workforce. Our design, customer service, marketing and sales teams are all based in Canada. Thanks for your support and purchase!

      1. Hi, thanks for the clarity of the information. You should apss information to support since they told me that finally grids are made in USA (maybe for me to stop contacting support?). Also a Broilking salesman, told me that grids are made in USA which is no true. I am disappointed about this. Also on the website the USA/CANADA is so large it can be very confusing.
