The Tough Little Grill with a Taste for Adventure

Summer is back! Finally, things are getting back to normal, and grill season is in full swing.

That's why we're so excited to introduce the newest portable grilling companion from Nexgrill: The Fortress 1-Burner Cast Aluminum Table Top Gas Grill (Model #820-BC002). Get to know the ins and outs of this tough little grill with a taste for adventure.

The first thing you'll notice about the new Nexgrill Fortress 1-Burner Table Top is its compact size. It's small, but surprisingly mighty. From tight spaces to table tops to tailgates, it fits darn near anywhere.

With just one burner and a total BTU output of 10,000 (wow!), this little stronghold of flavor packs quite the punch for its size. You can easily cook up enough burgers and hot dogs for everyone without overtaxing it with anything more complicated than some potato wedges on the side.

Cast Aluminum on the Outside, Cast Iron on the Inside

Besides being the perfect size for road trips, tight patios, and tailgates, another feature that leaps out at you is the cast aluminum lid and firebox. This commercial grade material is a premium 1.2mm thickness to keep heat trapped inside the firebox.

And on the inside, the porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates offer tremendous heat retention, and deliver the classic sear marks everyone loves about grilling.

1 Burner... 1 Serious Burner

You might be wondering, "How much heat could a 1-burner table top grill really generate?" More than you might think. Beneath the grates, a 304-grade stainless steel main burner can reach up to 10,000 BTUs of fire roasting energy without breaking a sweat. Giving you an easy-to-adjust burner that offers quick, controlled heating whenever you need it. And the unique wrap-around shape of the main burner stretches the interior of the firebox to ensure even heating throughout.

So Much to Love About One Table Top Grill
