30' Alfresco vs 38' Grand Turbo vs 42' Cal Flame

The pool is under way and I am trying to finalize the backyard plans. Part of it is deciding on a built-in BBQ grill. For my budget, I've narrowed it down to a 30" Alfresco, 38" Grand Turbo, 42" Cal Flame. I would appreciate any and all opinions on the three grills, the size, and the brand itself (quality, service, ...).

Thank you.

They are installing my Alfrescos this week. I went for 2 30 inch rather then 1 big one. I got one with infrared one without, will post after I use it.

Well the Alfresco BBQs are in and I used one the other night, the steaks came out terrific, I used the infared searing unit. The unit heated up quickly and the food came out great.
Good luck

Alfresco all the way .. cal-flame and turbo made in china (not bad) but parts can be a pain .... Alfresco usually sends someone for warranty (depends on where you live)
