Gas grills have been increasing in popularity and demand over traditional charcoal grills because of their convenience, less mess made ( ashes and smoke included) and even more economical.

There are some key factors to take into account before you buy your next gas grill , so here we go.

Price

From a few hundred dollars to thousands there`s plenty for everyone`s wallets and needs so make sure you establish your budget before hand as you get what you pay for:cheaper grills equal cheap quality.

Construction

Always try to go with stainless steel even if it goes a bit beyond your budget as your gas grill will last longer and look good for longer too.

Type of Gas

Modern gas grills are available either natural or propane gas fueled, in sometimes both. In the long run natural gas will save you money however you`ll need more money upfront so its really a matter of how often you`ll use it as like anything in life the more you use it the lower the price per use is.

BTU?

You`ll often see references to a BTU rating as a sales pitch for gas grills.

BTU means British Thermal and roughly represents the heat produced by burning a single wooden match[ , still confused?well don`t because this unit varies a lot upon the grill size and others that its really not that relevant so in the end you may ignore it when comparing gas grills.


Bellow are some of the most popular grills for sale, lets have a quick look at each of them.

Char-Broil Classic 480 4-Burner Gas Grill with Side Burner

Do you have a Phillips screw driver , one hour and a half and enthusiasm? if yes you are ready to assemble the Char-Broil Classic

This is one of the best gas grills you can buy if you are on a tight budget as it performs reasonably well considering the 200$ price tag.

It lights up easy and fast and as soon as you light the burners no gas adjustment is needed as it is ready to roll. With its powerful 4 burners it cooks fast but evenly so your BBQ will be tasty and wont stick to the grill even when using it for the first time.

The Char-Boil is also perfect for cooking lots of meat as it has plenty of heat in the main area
and so much grilling space you can cook lots of burgers or hot-dogs at the same time.

Weber Spririt E-210

Weber Spirit E210

Make no mistakes:this is one of the best gas grills out there and it`s really worth every dollar it costs.

The quality can be verified on every detail of this gas grill like its burners that are made from top quality stainless steel keeping the piece protected from those small amounts of water commonly found in every liquid propane and natural gas.

Its burner tubes are also made of a singular piece of steel ( no welds here) , therefore heavily protected from rust and burn-through.

The Weber spirit is designed to cook food evenly but if you want extreme heat it will go up to 550 degrees within 10 minutes on its highest setting.

One of the coolest this is its angled porcelain flavoring bars that smoke and sizzle when cooking juices drip down so your meat or vegetables will have that extra flavor when served.

Worth of mention is also its spring mounted propane tank gauge so you can replace the empty tank in advance and avoid last minute runs to your supplier leaving your meat half grilled.


Features

-360 sq. in primary cooking area

- 90 sq. in heat rack area

-2 stainless steel burners

-cast-iron cooking grates

-Electronic crossover ignition


For

-grease tray with catch pan

Dyna-Glo 5-Burner LP Gas Grill

The Dyba-Go 5 burner is probably the best gas grill you can buy if you`re on a generous budget. It has superior build quality, it looks nice, it works like a dream and its fantastic to grill lots of meat at the same time without loosing quality.

When you first use this gas grill you`ll notice all the beautiful details that make it an instant winner like its warming rack position in relation to the grates ( making flip burgers a breeze)or the perfect distance from the grease pan to the burner- no flare-ups.
