Tis the season for grilling. I am not sure about you but nothing says summer like a good grilled steak, hamburger, hot dog or some other tasty food. Monument is a grill we were introduced to at the beginning of the season. Monument is new to the market and they have made a big splash and have turned some eyes this season. We reviewed the 6 burner grill a couple of months ago but a lot of you have been asking about the 4 burner grill. Since this model and the 6 burners are pretty close to being the same grill, we aren't going to cover everything all over again, we are going to approach this a little different. Besides two more burners, a sliding propane tray and a better accessory hanger, there really isn't much difference with the Monument gas grill. Well except size.
I have been using this grill for over two months and pretty much 6 nights a week so I do have a ton of experience with this grill and wanted to go more in-depth on certain areas of this grill.

Monument Gas Grill – First Impressions
Before this grill, I had been using a Weber Spirit grill for a long time. For me, I would love to support Weber because they are a local company but from my experience, Weber has gone downhill. The grills aren't built like they used to be. While the grill has held up, it doesn't have the quality we have seen from them in the past.
The monument grill is much larger, built better and $250 less than my Weber grill. So what is there not to like about this grill? For the time I have been using it, I am a huge fan of this grill.
In the beginning, I wasn't sure how well it would hold up such as will the glass crack, will it get too dirty to see, will it still roll well after sitting outside? So far, it has been awesome. Sure the glass gets a little dirty but I heat up the grill and most of the mess comes right off the glass. The casters still roll great which is a huge plus to me since I am always moving it around when the kids want to play basketball in the driveway. I still question the searing burner as mine is pretty dirty but it has been easy to clean and still works great.
So far, I am still excited to use this grill as it heats up quickly, stays hot and has a large working space.
As a hint, if you like slow cooking, you might get frustrated when all the burners are on low, it's hard to get the temp below 300 degrees. I found that if I put the 1st and 3rd burner on low and the 2nd and 4th off, the grill will sit at the 200-degree temperature and it works great.
Monument Gas Grill – Wrap Up
As with the 6 burner grill we reviewed, the 4 burner is just as good. While it lacks a better accessory hanger and propane tray, it's large enough for a family of 5 and the family who throws those occasional parties. I love the stainless steel design with the searing burner. The casters work well and having the glass makes all the world of difference, especially in the winter which I will update you on Instagram. For the price, this is a hard grill to compete with.
