BTU Rating

This is the most common way people compare different gas grills. However, this is ill-advised for the following reason. 

The BTU rating of a grill specifies the maximum heat in BTUs (British Thermal Units) that the grill’s primary burner can produce. This isn’t supposed to include the heat that the secondary burners produce. However, some manufacturers add up the BTUs of all the burners to give the impression that the grill can burn hotter than it actually does. Therefore, the BTU rating on a grill isn’t an effective way to compare across manufacturers.
