The name Monument may not be synonymous with best grills just yet, but if they keep churning out grills like this one, then it could be in their future. This is especially true if you’re looking for the best rotisserie grill, as this one has a sturdy rotisserie attachment for all your chicken and lamb needs.

Why We Like It – Monument Grills

The Monument Grills is a stand-out among mid-range grills for its abundance of features, such as a rotisserie grill, side burners, LED knobs, and powerful main burners, and its exceptionally large grilling space that rivals those of higher-end models. For another great option, read our Napoleon gas grills review, or for a different fuel option, check out our best pellet smoker guide or the Vision Kamado grill.

  • Under 10 Minutes of Preheat Time
  • Side Burners
  • Porcelain-Coated Cast-Iron Grates
  • Loose Bolts
  • Wheel Locks Don’t Always Engage


Monument Four Burner Gas Grills have, as you may have suspected, four main burners beneath the cooking grate grilling surface. These four main stainless steel burners are capable of reaching a combined total of 60,000 BTUs, or 15,000 each, which is above the 10,000-12,000 average. If you need something even more powerful for whatever reason, make sure you check out our DCS Grill Review or our KitchenAid grill review. Another plus for the Monument, it preheats in under 10 minutes! If you want to take advantage of the burners’ powerful heat and use it for indirect heat, cook your food on a burner that’s next to the heat source. Keep in mind that this unit does not have a sear burner, though monument makes another 4-burner propane gas grill that does have one.

The primary cooking area on the Monument grill is 513 square inches, while the warming rack adds another 210 square inches for a total of 723 square inches of cooking space. It’s a large cooking area capable of hosting a large-scale barbecue. You can check out the Weber Summit S-670 LP gas grill or read our Blaze grill review if you want something with just a tad bit more space. However, if you don’t need all that space, read our Royal Gourmet Gas Grill review to see if it will suit your needs.

On the other hand, for a grill with massive space, read our Char-Broil TRU Infrared grill 463276016 review.


The Monument is constructed from sturdy stainless steel materials and should stand up to most inclement weather you throw at it. Where it does disappoint is near the grill’s main body, where smaller, not always tightened bolts are used. The wheel locks seem to be on the cheap side as they don’t always engage when you press down on them. For something that’s even lighter, you’ll want to look at our Weber Go Anywhere charcoal grill review.

Try the Char-Broil 463370719 or the Char-Broil Performance 2 burner for something a little sturdier. This solid grill also has a slightly more affordable price.

Ease of Use

Monument Grills come with LED controls that work wonders for temperature control for late-night cooking, and porcelain-coated cast-iron grates, which not only retain heat but are easier to clean. As for maintaining and cleaning the 4-burner grill, you’ll be thankful for its removable grease tray. And while there is assembly required, it shouldn’t take more than a few hours and only one tool, a Phillips head screwdriver. The only time you may need help is by putting on the clearview lid. This propane gas grill also comes with a built-in thermometer for easy heat monitoring. The LED-backlit control knobs are a cool feature that can make grilling after dark more convenient.


There’s still plenty of additional features on the Monument Grill, like side sear burners and a rotisserie grill that’s great for chicken, lamb, and turkey. And truthfully, for a mid-range barbecue like this, all of the features it has makes it really stand out for its price range. It’s a reasonable price for all the advanced features that this grill offers, but if you’re new to grilling, we recommend that you start out with a beginner grill to dip your toes into the art of grilling.

Monument Grills Wrap Up

You would do well to review Monument Grills if you find yourself looking for a new one. The construction may have taken a back seat to features, but the features it does include are plentiful and worthwhile. And if Monument can boost their construction prowess, they’ll have a real winner on their hands.
