Coyote vs Blaze Grills – High-End Brand Comparison (2023)

If you’re in the market for a high-end stainless gas grill, there are plenty of great choices on the market today.

Two companies worth looking at are Blaze and Coyote Outdoor Living. These brands offer stylish and durable grills that are made with premium-quality 304 stainless steel. Yes, they are a bit pricey too, so you would want to take a moment to compare different options to find the best one for your needs.

Let’s take a closer look at these beautiful grills, including a few things that set them apart from one another.

Blaze – Brand Overview

Blaze is a brand well-known for their elegant and functional grills and outdoor kitchen appliances.

Founded in 2012, the company offers anything from gas and charcoal grills to kamados and griddles. They also have a nice selection of outdoor kitchen appliances and accessories including fridges, beverage centers, vent hoods, and cabinets.

Blaze is positioned as an up-scale brand priced to provide great value to the customer. The grills are extremely high-quality and long-lasting featuring double-lined hoods for better heat insulation.

These grills provide a professional-level cooking experience and are loaded with useful features, backed by a lifetime warranty, and built to stand the test of time.

Coyote – Brand Overview

Coyote Outdoor Living specializes in built-in outdoor kitchen appliances.

While you can buy carts and freestanding versions of their grills, all of the company’s products share a similar design. This makes them great for creating a stylish and functional outdoor kitchen.

The company offers everything from gas, charcoal, and high-quality built-in pellet grills, to various other appliances and fixtures for luxury outdoor patios.

Coyote is based in Dallas, Texas, where their products are developed and designed. But, like Blaze and most other manufacturers, the grills are manufactured in Asia.

Their premium-quality grills are backed by a tiered warranty that covers the frame, housing, and burners for a lifetime. In addition, the grates are covered for five years, the flame-tamers and electrical components for two years, and the ignition system and valves for one year.

Coyote vs Blaze – Grill Comparisons

Coyote and Blaze gas grills are available in two comparable product lines.

The Blaze Premium LTE and Coyote C-Series offer a high-quality cooking experience while still being in the acceptable price range for most consumers. The Blaze Professional LUX and Coyote S-Series are pricier and come with more features and are made with even heavier and more durable stainless steel.

All grills reviewed in this guide are available as stand-alone cart models and as built-in counter models for outdoor kitchens. You can also choose between many different size options ranging from smaller 2-burner units to huge 5-burner rigs.

You can also take a look at my guide with Bull vs Blaze Grills for more premium options to choose from.

Blaze Premium LTE vs Coyote C-Series (Stand-Alone or Built-In)

Both of these grills are excellent and the competition between Blaze and Coyote is tough here — so the choice will come down to which features you want.

We like Blaze’s use of 443 stainless for better durability on some parts, plus rotisserie cooking and smoking options. But the charcoal tray in the Coyote is an amazing upgrade to any gas grill, making the choice extra difficult.

Get the Blaze Premium LTE if you want to have a durable grill covered by a lifetime warranty and like the thick 9 mm triangular cooking grid.

However, if you don’t mind paying a few hundred more and want a bit more grilling space and heating power, then the Coyote C-Series might be a better choice.

NOTE: We will review the 4 and 3-burner stand-alone units below, but both grills are also available as larger versions and built-in models (you can choose your preferred option in the BBQGuys online store).

Blaze Premium LTE 32 Inch

  • Total Grilling Area: 715
  • Number of Main Burners: 4

  • Internal Halogen Lights

Design and Build Quality

Both of these are high-end stainless steel grills that come with some form of a lifetime warranty — although the Coyote is only covered partly. So their design, construction, and built quality are more similar than different. The grills look great and are designed so that any part can be replaced if needed.

However, there are some important differences worth mentioning.

For the most part, the grills are made with 304-grade stainless steel. Blaze, however, goes one step further and extensively uses 443 stainless for the interior components of the firebox.

The 443 alloys contain titanium, which reduces the flex of the material as it is heated and cooled. That makes it much more robust on the inside of the grill, which is shown in the fact that these components are included in Blaze’s lifetime warranty.

Ease of Use and Maintenance/Cleaning

Using these two grills is also very much alike. They have large turn-to-ignite controls for trouble-free startups. In addition, both have lights for nighttime grilling.

The grills offer great cooking performance and are easy to use. They come with reliable flame thrower ignition systems that require no external electrical source.

These grills have a full-width drip tray that pulls out from the front, which gives you easier cleaning than most other grills. In addition, all grill components, from the grates to the drip catchers and flame tamers, lift out for easy cleaning.

Burners and Temperature Range

Both the Blaze and the Coyote have similar arrangements of burners, but the burners are designed differently.

The total output for the four-burner, 32-inch Blaze LTE is 56,000 BTUs, while the Coyote 34-inch grill with three burners has a bit more firepower with at 60,000 BTUs.

Blaze uses cast 304 stainless burners with a conventional bar design, whereas the Coyote uses Infinity burners — cast 304 burners with an H-shaped layout. The H burners put out more heat, roughly 20,000 BTUs a piece compared to 14,000 BTUs on Blaze.

If you’re interested in infrared cooking, Blaze comes with an infrared rear burner and there are also main infrared burners available that can be used to replace one of their conventional burners. This is a nice feature since you can swap the burners out as needed.

The Blaze Premium LTE also has added heat baffles between each burner, allowing for better control over multi-zone cooking.

Grilling Space

Both grill lines offer similar sizes, and both have removable warming racks. The Blaze 32-inch LTE has 531 square inches of space on the main rack, and the Coyote 34-inch grill is slightly bigger with 616 square inch main cooking area.

The Blaze cooking grid is made of a triangular-shaped stainless rod, which distributes heat to your food and leaves better sear marks than a regular round rod like the Coyote. Both, however, are strong grates made to last a long time.

In addition, Coyote has an upgraded, laser-cut cooking grate available that’s stellar for small items where sear marks aren’t your priority.

Extra Features

Both grills have interior lights for nighttime cooking and come with some outstanding extra features that you will want to compare carefully before choosing.

The Blaze has the optional infrared burner mentioned above. It also comes with a built-in infrared rear burner but the rotisserie kit is sold separately. Finally, there’s an optional smoker box available that is sealed enough to use as a liquid steamer try.

Coyote offers a few options worth thinking about, as well. They are sold separately but aren’t too pricey.

If you want a little charcoal cooking in your life, Coyote has a charcoal tray that sits in the grill and lights off from the gas burners. Charcoal cooking has never been easier!

Finally, there’s also a ceramic briquette flame tamer tray to replace the standard stainless version that comes with the grill. All of these are great cooking upgrades that you may — or may not — consider a must-have item.

Blaze Professional LUX vs Coyote S-Series (Stand-Alone or Built-In)

Next up are the top-of-the-line products from both brands.

These grills come with everything you could wish for from infrared burners and rotisserie kits to internal and external grill lights.

Get the Blaze Professional LUX if you’re not shy about spending money and want the absolute best option.

However, if you’re looking for a maximum amount of grilling space and firepower with a lower price tag, then the Coyote S-Series could be a better option.

NOTE: We will review the 3 and 4-burner stand-alone units below, but both grills are also available as larger versions and built-in models (you can choose your preferred option in the BBQGuys online store). If you buy from Amazon and want the stand-alone Coyote grill, you need to get the Grill Cart separately.

Blaze Professional LUX Gas Grill

  • Number of Main Burners: 3
  • Main Burner BTUs: 54,000

Design and Build Quality

The Blaze Professional is an upgraded version of the LTE, with heavier and more durable burners, flame tamers, and grill grates.

The Coyote S-series is also an upgraded version that includes several things that are optional on the C-series. For example, its cart features high-quality sliding drawers for better storage than most grill carts.

Both of these grills are made almost exclusively out of 304 stainless. Unlike the LTE-series grills, the Blaze LUX does not use 443 stainless components.

Ease of Use and Maintenance/Cleaning

Like the less expensive grills, both have front drawer-style drip trays that make cleanup a snap.

In addition, all internal parts of the grills lift out for cleaning without tools. Likewise, both include flame thrower ignitions and hood thermometers for easy cooking.

Burners and Temperature Range

These grills feature cast H-style high-power burners and have a rear infrared burners and rotisserie kits included.

The Blaze LUX puts out 54,000 BTUs with its three H-style burners, while the Coyote makes a whopping 75,000 BTUs with its three conventional burners and one infrared burner.

Instead of traditional metal flame tamers, the Coyote S-series has a ceramic briquette heat distribution system that holds heat longer and prevents hot zones. It also comes standard with a ceramic infrared burner-powered searing station.

Grilling Space

The Blaze uses a beefy hexagon-shaped cooking grate, whereas the Coyote has conventional round rods. But both are heavy and sturdy and will stand the test of time well.

The Blaze’s main grate has 615 square inches of space while the Coyote has 640 square inches. Both have removable warming racks.

Extra Features

Both grills have two interior lights and the Coyote includes a smoker box, as well. In addition, the RapidSear infrared burner on Coyote is great for getting that crispy and charred surface on your steaks.

As mentioned above, these grills come with full-featured rotisserie kits that include storage hooks when not in use.

Blaze vs Coyote – Final Thoughts

Even after you know all the facts, choosing between a Coyote and Blaze grill is difficult. That’s because both brands offer durable and well-designed stainless steel grills that you will be happy to cook with!

Take some time to look at the different models — how they look, what features they have, what’s included in the package, and what additional items are available. Then make the choice based on which unit best suits your cooking style and it fits into your backyard or outdoor kitchen.

All of the grills introduced in this guide offer excellent cooking performance and great value for money, so you can’t really go wrong.
