Fuego grill review

Rating: 4.7 Reviewed by Eddie

The Fuego grill review shows it is a well know design from the former Apple designer Robert Brunner and they can be called a designer or maybe even a high-end grill. I do a Fuego grill review and will focus on the Fuego element grill and of course, also advise on the accessories that are available.



Main features of the Fuego grill

  • 21 x 21 inches foot
  • 346 sq inches cooking surface
  • Push-button ignition
  • Assembles in 30 minutes with 14 screws
  • 21.000 BTU
  • several models available

Here is a short video that will show many of the Fuego features.

grill surface and grill grate material

The grill surface is 346 square inches and by the rule of thumb that you need about 70 sq inches per person for a full meal including meat and veggies this grill is good to grill for 5 people. Most of the time, however, we only use the grill for our meat and in that case, there is room for a large group of people because it will fit about 12 burgers at once.

The grill grate is made of my favorite material. Porcelain-coated cast iron. The cast iron will retain the heat very well and the enamel coating is non-stick without the use of PTF or any other chemical. The weight is 15 Lbs and that proves enough for the quality. It is my personal experience that this enamel coating makes the grill grate easy to clean with a quality brush as you can find in our grill brush reviews.

More features of the Fuego grill

There are more things to mention about this Fuego outdoor grill. The propane tank is nicely hidden behind a hinged door and this door opens wide enough for easy access and to replace the tank.

The lid can be removed and placed on the side of the grill for easy storage when you are working on your food and within reach to put it back on right away.
The lid also comes with a built-in thermometer and this comes in pretty handy. I have experienced that most build in thermometers are not very accurate and that is why I always recommend a digital probe thermometer to keep the grill temperature under control and a pocket thermometer to check the doneness of the meat to make sure it is not under or overcooked.

The wheels make it very easy to move the grill to any location you want it to go. The wheel can be locked to make sure it does not move while you are operating the grill.

The residue tray under the firebox will ensure that the flare-ups will be limited and by pulling it out you can remove the grease very easily.

The control valve provides a nice range in temperature that will allow some slow cooking or keeping food warm at 250 degrees and at the high setting it will heat up the grill in no time to searing temperatures of over 550 degrees. The Fuego company even claims temperatures up to 650 degrees.

There is a conversion set available to convert the element grill to natural gas. Just realize that you will lose the option to move it around. It all depends on the length of your hose.

The total size of the Fuego element portable gas grill is 21 x 21 inches at the base with 4 wheels and a height of 46 inches. This takes up as much space as a patio chair.

Most grills in this category and with these Btu’s are a lot bigger. For example, if we look at the Weber Q3200 review , the cooking area is just about 50 sq inches more but the total size is 51 x 30 inches. The height is however 55 inches about 11 inches more. If you are tall that might be something to keep in mind.

Our opinion about the Fuego element portable gas grill

After reading many reviews and contacting the Fuego company with some questions I had there is not much negative to tell about the Fuego Element propane gas grill.

The variety of Fuego gas grill models will make me maybe decide to do a separate Fuego element grill review to help you find all the differences in the models.

The Fuego grill models are:

Fuego F21C

This model is the basic model and comes with the lowest price. This one is also known as the Fuego felg21c element gas grill carbon steel.

  • Carbon steel
  • 346 sq inches cooking space
  • 21000 BTU

Fuego F21S

This is the stainless steel liquid propane grill.

  • Stainless steel
  • 346 sq inches cooking space
  • 21000 BTU

Fuego F24C

This is the Fuego Professional model.

  • Carbon steel
  • 525 sq inches
  • 26500 BTU

I will add more information in our Fuego element gas grill review about the exact differences very soon. Basically, the F21 comes in stainless steel and carbon steel version and the F24c has more grill space including a warming rack.

The24c is made of carbon steel. People also search for Fuego grill recipes but I can assure you that you can cook all the same food on it as on any other brand. With the accessories you can find below you can however expand your way of cooking.
Fuego grill accessories

There are accessories I recommend for every grill and have found the ones I think will help your Fuego grill last longer and the ones that will improve your cooking experience.

Before I talk about some of the accessories here is a short video that might explain it maybe better.

Fuego grill cover

There is no outdoor grill that will last long without a good grill cover to protect it from the elements.
The Fuego FEAOC4 Element Outdoor Cover Grill is specially made to fit all element grills.

Made from high-quality material and the seams that are taped gives an extra layer of protection against water.
As a nice extra, it has the Fuego log on it.

Fuego clip on side shelf

This heavy-duty shelf can hold up to 10 lbs and simply slips in the side handle to give you more space.

Great for placing some of the other accessories you use as a plate, bowl for a rub, or maybe your favorite drink.
You never seem to have enough room when you cook on the grill and this handy table can make your life a lot easier.

Fuego cast iron griddle

A grill can be used for a lot more than cooking meat of veggies. With this Fuego feagp1 cast iron griddle you are able to cook breakfast, fajitas, sausage, and anything else you would normally cook on a flat grill or in a skillet. This griddle fits all Fuego grill models.

The surface is easy to clean because it is porcelain coated just like the regular grill grate and is very versatile to use.

Summary of the Fuego grill

Overall I think this is a great grill for smaller parties. With the available grill surface, you will after all not be able to cook a lot of meat at the same time.

The design that is very sleek makes the grill almost look like a great piece of art instead of a device to cook on. The way its futuristic design stands out is because of the long and narrow shape, that is used to store the propane tank.

This all is placed on a four-wheeled sturdy and stable base to make it easy to move the grill around.

With its size of 21 x 21 inches, it is also small enough to fit on a smaller patio or balcony.

If you like to see nice grill marks you made the right choice. the porcelain enameled cast iron grate will make them perfect.

This does not mean that you always have to cook on searing temperatures of course. The F21C and the other models offer temperatures from 250 for some kind of low and slow cooking all the way up to 650 degrees.

This all is achieved through the concentric dual ring burner that basically creates two heat zones. Outside is indirect and the center is direct cooking over the hot coal.

Let’s talk about assembly for a minute. I don’t know about you but that is most of the time not my favorite thing to do.

Luckily the Fuego comes with only 14 screws and the total assembly can be done in a matter of minutes. The only tool you need is a Phillips screwdriver and then read the very easy to follow instructions.

Cleaning is also something most of us are not very excited about. Especially after cooking.

The residue tray takes care of all grease that comes from the diffuser and the firebox. It is, however, easy to remove for easy cleaning.
Just pull it out and place it back after you cleaned it.

Here is a video on how to deep clean the Fuego grills.

Just remember that the Fuego will cook a little faster than most other grills. The reason is that it heats up fast and cooks very effectively.
