If you’ve been to a Home Depot store in the last few weeks, you know that it’s grilling season again! We’ve pulled together lots of grill options in varying price points. Which one would work best for you?
TOP ROW: COMBINATION GRILLS
The Brinkmann Dual Function 3-Burner Propane Gas/Charcoal Grill and Smoker and the Char-Broil Triple Function Gas/Charcoal Grill and Smoker both offer you three grills in one: gas, charcoal, and a smoker! With a capacity to cook dozens of burgers at once, the Brinkmann Dual Function and Char-broil Triple Function grills would be great for the serial entertainer.
SECOND ROW: GAS GRILLS
Both the Weber Genesis S310 3-Burner Natural Gas Grill and the Blue Ember Professional 5-Burner Natural Gas Grill get 5 stars from our customers. You can’t ask for much more than that. With weather-resistant stainless steel finishes and 637 and 875 square inches of cooking space, respectively, you can comfortably fit racks of ribs, large tenderloins, and your biggest catch of the day.
THIRD ROW: CHARCOAL GRILLS
If you’re a sucker for the smoky flavor of a charcoal grill, here are a couple of our favorites. The Char-Broil American Barrel Style Charcoal Grill is affordable, making it a great charcoal grill for beginners. It has everything you need and nothing you don’t.
The Weber Performer Platinum is a cut above your average American kettle grill. It has a handy gas ignition system for firing up your coals as well as a workspace for platters, tongs, and whatever cold beverage you’re nursing while manning the grill.
The Char-Broil CB940X Charcoal Grill is a solid choice, made of sturdy cast iron. It comes with a reliable thermometer and 540 square inches of cook space.
FOURTH ROW: PORTABLE GRILLS
If you’re taking your favorite barbecue recipes on the road, may we recommend a portable grill? The Weber Q 100 Propane Grill gets 5 stars from our reviewers, who say it heats fast and cooks evenly.
With 240 square inches of cook space, a reliable heating thermometer, and a convenient ignition system, the Cuisinart All Foods Propane Grill offers a step up from your basic portable propane grill.
For a portable charcoal grill, the Weber Smokey Joe is simple, affordable, and built to last.
FIFTH ROW: SMOKERS
If you have time on your hands and want tender meat with smokey flavor, a smoker is the way to go (want to learn more about smokers?). The Masterbuilt Electric Smoker pulls out all the stops with its four grilling racks, portable design, large viewing window, and even a light to watch over your feast.
Or get started with a Brinkmann Electric Gourmet Smoker — it has an affordable price tag and can hold up to 50 pounds of meat. One of our customer reviewers insists that the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker is a choice smoker for blue ribbon winners in smoking competitions. We’ll take that!
LAST ROW: GRILLS IN COLOR
Want something a little different for your backyard grill? We love seeing some of our favorite models in all the colors of the rainbow. The Brinkmann 4-Burner Propane Grill comes in a cheery shade of red! The Weber One Touch Gold Charcoal Grill comes in Dark Blue, and the Weber Genesis E-310 Propane Grill comes in green and gold.
