The Rundown

Even if you are new to grilling, there is probably one manufacturer’s name that you know: Weber. Weber has been the leading manufacturer of gas, charcoal, electric, and portable grills since its inception in 1952. Since the beginning Weber has been known for innovation. George Stephen, Weber’s founder, invented the kettle grill with the rounded bowl and lid.

Today Weber has continued their history of innovation and excellence. Our pick for the top gas grill, the Spirit E310, illustrates this long tradition. Even though it does not replicate Weber’s classic kettle grill shape, it includes other innovations like the Electronic Crossover ignition system and Flavorizer bars. This grill also includes fold-down side tables and is large enough to cook a 20 lb. turkey. Couple the great features with Weber’s reputation for durability and an affordable product, and you get a must-have grill.

2. Weber Genesis II LX S-440 Natural Gas Grill

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

It should not be surprising that our runner-up for best gas grill would be another Weber product. Since 1952 this company has been making the best grills on the market. Some of their modern innovations that come standard are the Flavorizer Bars. These are priority angled bars that are placed over the burners in order to direct the grease from the open flame. This cuts down on grease fires and ensures that the grease from your meat goes into a receptacle instead of creating a mess.

The Genesis II series, especially the LX S-440, includes the Flavorizer Bars as well as other Weber innovations like the GS4 Grilling System. In addition to the Flavorizer Bars, this system also includes a new Grease Management System, Infinity Ignition, and stainless-steel burners. Additionally, the Genesis II LX S-440 has a side table burner and is one of the largest grills on our gas grill reviews article. If you want a big, highly functional, and easy to use grill, then this is the one for you. However, it is in second place behind the Spirit E310, because with the new features and size comes a hefty price tag.

The Rundown

Another Weber. You might be noticing a theme in our picks for the top gas grills. And, that is not an accident. Weber has been one of the best grill producers for more than half a century. Like their founder George Stephen, the creators of Weber grills are grillers themselves, and it shows. All of their products are easy to use and formed especially for grillers of any experience level.

What is interesting about the Genesis II LX S-340 is that it is almost an exact copy of our number two pick, the Genesis II LX S-440. The one main difference, this one is smaller. The slight difference in size creates a small drop in price. However, the features that make the larger Genesis LX S-440 stand apart from the competition remain in the Genesis II LX S-340. There is still the GS4 Grilling System—composed of stainless-steel burners, Grease Management System, Flavorizer bars, and Infinity Ignition. There is also still a side burner and tuck-away warming rack.

The last Weber grill on our list, the Genesis II E-310 is a solid grill. It is much smaller than the other two Genesis options in this review. But, that just makes it more appropriate for people with smaller backyard patios. You can choose either the propane or natural gas option, depending on your preference. Overall, a flexible and versatile grilling option.

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

Fuego is a relative new comer to the gas grill industry. In fact, the company was launched just four years ago, in 2014 by Robert Brunner. Brunner is the form chief of design at Apple and the designer of Beat by Dr. Dre Headsets. In neither of those positions did Brunner create grills, but his design experience has helped him create a great and stylish product. The company now offers three different gas grills: the Fuego Element F21C, the Fuego Element F21S, and the Fuego Professional F24C.

The grill we highlight today is the Fuego Element F21C. This is the first grill designed by Fuego in 2014. It has unique features that set it apart from the competition. First of all, it is only 21 in. x 21 in. and has wheels, which makes it extremely useful for people with smaller spaces, like balcony patios. Secondly, because of its cylindrical design, the Element F21C still has a large cook area, even tough the space is it takes up is small. Fuego even claims that it can grill more than twelve quarter-pounders at once.

[/su_column][su_column size=”1/2″]

It may not have all the bells and whistles of the larger grills in this review, but it cooks just as well.

With a founding date of 1948, Char-Broil is one of the oldest companies that makes gas grills. The company made a name for itself by bringing one of the first charcoal grills to the consumer market.

The Rundown

Our final Char-Broil gas grill on our gas grill reviews list. The Classic 360 gas grill is quite different than the TRU-Infrared grills listed above. In fact, it is a better example of Char-Broil’s origins than their current models. It has a similar—but still modern—drum shape. The original Char-Broil grills from the 1940s were made from steel drums.

Just because the Classic 360 gas grill has a classic shape, does not mean that it will not work well. In addition to the classic drum shape of the grill there are two fold-down side shelves and a 170 square inch warming rack in the lid. Perfect for a small backyard barbeque with friends, or an inexperienced griller, the Classic 360 gas grill is easy to use and provides all of the features that have made Char-Broil one of the most popular grill companies in the United States.

Best Gas Grill Reviews Buyer’s Guide

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

Now that you know our picks for the top gas grills, you may be wondering how to choose between them. Here are some of the most important factors to keep in mind as you make your purchase.

Cost

Probably the most important factor anytime you make a purchase, how much money you have to spend will determine what grill you buy. If you only have a couple hundred dollars, then you will likely not be able to afford the Weber grills in our top spots. However, if money is not an object, then any grill we list here is fair game.

The most essential thing you can do when making any purchase is find a balance between what you want, the quality of the product, and its cost. Just because something is the most expensive does not mean that it is the best. Likewise, a product on the cheaper side may be very high quality. This is why we have included our pros and cons of the above gas grills, so you can make an informed and prudent decision.

Dimensions

The product’s dimensions, or the space it takes up, will also be an important factor in your decision to purchase one gas grill over another. If you have a small space to grill, like a balcony patio or a tiny backyard, you should not purchase an extremely large grill. If it takes up too much of your space, or doesn’t fit in the first place, it is not a good investment.

We recommend measuring the space where you plan on putting the grill. This way you can begin looking at products with all of the information. Also, keep in mind that some grills come with side tables that fold down. This is a great solution for people who have space to use the grill but need the extra space when the product is not in use.

Finally, remember that you can get a lot of cooking power in small packages, so just because you don’t have the space for a large grill doesn’t mean you have to get an inferior product.

BTU vs. Power Source

When it comes to gas grills, the amount of BTU (British Thermal Unit)—or energy output—is important information to consider. BTU measures the amount of energy it would take to raise one pound of water one-degree Fahrenheit. In grills this amounts to the quantity of fuel the appliance consumes. Thus, the higher the BTU number, the more fuel the grill consumes. The more fuel the grill consumes, the higher your bill.

Similarly, what type of gas the grill uses will be a determining factor to your purchase. If you accidentally purchase a natural gas grill, but do not have access to natural gas, you will have a problem. Propane is the safest choice if you are unsure of what power source to buy. Most propane grills can be converted to natural gas if you decide to change the power source later on.

Cooking Area and Warming Area

The whole point of buying a gas grill is to cook with it. Thus, the size of the cooking area and whether or not the grill has a warming area will be an important distinction between different models. Many grills now include warming trays, usually above the cook surface, that allow you to keep food warm while finishing cooking. This allows you to cook multiple types of things at once. Even if a vegetable or protein finishes early, it doesn’t have to go cold waiting for the slowing cooking items to be done.

The cooking area is perhaps even more important than the warming rack. Again, bigger does not necessarily mean better. And, for the most part, the larger the cook surface, the larger the grill. So, if you only have a small location to put the grill, you may have to sacrifice some cook space. However, if you only plan on cooking the occasional hamburger or chicken, then a smaller cook surface will not be a problem. And, some of the smaller models have deceptively large cook surfaces, like the Fuego Element grill.

Weight

For a gas grill, you may think that weight wouldn’t be a big issue. Grills stay in the same place, right? But, while weight for a gas grill may not as essential as in other portable appliances, it can still cause major problems if not taken into consideration. First, not all grills stay stationary. Especially if you plan on storing the grill in a place that is separate from where you do the cooking, you will need to be able to move it around. In this case, if the grill is too heavy, you will not be able to store it in the correct location. Also, if the grill is too large and heavy, and you have a small backyard or balcony patio, it could not fit. No one wants to buy an appliance that they then can not use.

One other problem that is common when appliances ordered online are too heavy is that they can arrive at your house damaged. In fact, many of the reviews for the largest Weber grills mention grills damaged on arrival more than any other problem. When you’ve paid good money for an appliance, the last thing you want is for it to arrive to your home already damaged. While you can often return the product and receive a new one if it arrives damaged, this will take time and delay your grilling fun.

Others

Do you want side tables, utensil hooks, a side burner, or a warming rack? These are all extras that are available on various gas grill models. The more add-ons you require, in general the higher the cost. However, some of the extras, like utensil hooks and side tables are fairly common.

A major want for some people may be a burner on one of the side tables. This burner is usually smaller than the main cook top. However, it is perfect for side dishes or sauces. If you want to use the grill to cook an entire meal, then this addition would be essential.

Like the other categories we’ve mentioned, you should determine what other amenities you’d like on your gas grill before you purchase. Ask yourself what meals you are likely to cook, and the frequency that you plan on using the grill. If you intend to use the grill as an entertainment center or want to cook an entire meal on it, it will likely need to have more extras. Being honest about what you need can save you trouble and money when you are ready to buy.

Conclusion

Purchasing a gas grill can seem like an extremely challenging decision. There are a lot of products on the market. Many manufactures even make a lot of different models. How, then do you choose the best one?

First of all, before even beginning your search for your next gas grill, you should make a list of your wants and needs. Make sure that you know all of the non-negotiables that you have to have in your grill to be happy. Second, keep in mind all of the factors that we listed in our buyer’s guide. They will help you make the best purchase that you can. Finally, any of the products listed on our top ten list will be a great bet. While they all have their own pros and cons, you can’t go wrong with any of them.

Purchasing a grill doesn’t have to be as hard as it seems. Follow our handy advice, and then you can move on the hard—and much more enjoyable work—perfecting your grilling technique and impressing your family and friends.
