What is a BTU?


BTU stands for British Thermal Unit and is a measurement of heat. Most traditional style convection cooking systems require high BTU rates to heat the grill. The result is a high propane usage rate, flare-ups and uneven cooking temperatures. The Saber® cooking system is designed to maximize the use of propane and provides high performance grilling with 1/3 less BTU’s.
