Broil-King Monarch 40 Review- A Basic Grill


broil king monarch 40 grill(OutdoorGardenLiving)- You wouldn’t be far off if you thought the Broil-King Monarch 40 was less than modern in its aesthetic appeal, but that’s the whole point.  This grills main highlight is the high level of engineering.  It heats evenly, gives great grilling control, BTUs set a high output of heat, and an adequate 520 square inches of cooking space.

If you look past the mediocre design, what you have is a grill with capability of high heat and a set of linear flow valves allowing the grill to control heat of a wide range.

The side burner found in the Broil-King Monarch 40 is rather average in the amount of power it has- 10,000 BTU.  Although this is close to underwhelming, Broil-King does use one of the best burners around- a Super-8 Infinity burner.


  • Doesn’t have the option to run on natural gas
  • Low BTU output from the side burner


The cart configuration is standard, but there are many options for mounting. Consider this one that will hold up for years.

Price Options

Less than $330 is a good starting point.
