Best Outdoor BBQ Gas Grills of 2016

Updated on March 24, 2016

This post is a review of the top rated and bestselling BBQ grills of the year. Cooking outdoors on the barbecue is an American tradition that dates back to the early 19th century when Americans ate pig because it was an easy food source that could be released into the wild and caught and eaten later. Per Wikipedia at that time 5 pounds of pork were consumer for every pound of beef.

Barbecue has evolved from that early stage to a worldwide competition in Memphis, Tenesee where techniques for smoking, braising, and baking are showcased for meats of all types.

Grills Online

More and more consumers are finding that they can get the cheapest prices for their products online and its no different with grills. Usually there is a 20% markup at the store and since shipping is usually free on large items like grills there's really no reason not to order online.

Top 5 Grills of 2016

1.) Weber 586002 Propane Gas Grill

The most popular grill so far this year is the Weber 586002 propane gas grill. Weber is a brand that is none for their customer service and quality. This particular grill even comes with a 5 year warranty. People like the 586002 because of its quality parts, durability and portability. The 586002 can easily be folded up, bolted as a stationary cart ( measures 22 by 36-1/2 by 55-1/2 inches) and taken with you to a family event or tailgating party.

High quality parts for the 586002 include two porcelain-enameled cast-iron grates, and a cast aluminum body and lid with a reinforced frame. The grill is easily lit with a push button placed on the front for simple lighting. As an owner of a Weber grill myself you'll be amazed at how much better your Weber grill cooks when compared to other less expensive brands.

2.) Weber 4431001 Spirit E-320 Propane Grill

Now you can get a portable and professional level grill for a fraction of the price that they used to be. The E-320 was built with quality in mind. Its grates are all porcelain enameled. The E-320 comes with a large primary cooking area of 424 square inches (warming are of 112 square inches). It features a center mounted thermometer and 3 stainless steel burners. In addition it comes with heat deflectors, a six tool hook, and porcelain enameled flavorizer bars

This model also includes a porcelain enameled flavorizer bars, porcelain enameled heat deflectors, and six tool hook

Here's what one owner had to say about the E-320:

"(It's) Most definitely the best grill I have ever had. The entire surface heats up evenly and you can crank it up to whatever temp you want for great searing."

3.) Char-Broil Quantum Infrared Urban Gas Grill with Folding Side Shelves

This compact grill features the Quantum Infrared Cooking system which allows for versatility without temperature spikes. The Quantum was designed so that you can add wood chips directly on the grates for increased flavor and taste.

4.) Weber 6511001 Genesis E-310 Liquid Propane Gas Grill, Black

If your budget is a little bit higher and you aren't a casual barbecue guy, then consider the Weber E-310. One owner said that "If you have been on a decade spanning quest to cook steaks, ribs, kabobs, veggies, poppers, fowl, pork, lamb, buffalo - better than your local restaurants... then this is the right grill (for you)! It works beautifully, has the time and cost saving convenience of a gas grill and is limited only by your imagination."


The 3-210 comes with porcelain-enameled cast iron cooking grates, flavorizer bars, and heat deflectors. The electronic ignition system provides easy lighting for 3 stainless steel burners and heat is controlled with a convenient thermometer within a porcelain-enameled shroud. It also comes with 2 heavy-duty front locking casters and 2 heavy-duty back swivel casters.

5.) Char Broil K6B Six-Burner 65,000 BTU Gas Grill, with Side burner

If you don't have as high of a budget but still need a full-sized grill then consider the K6b Gas Grill with side burner which has 650 square inches of cooking area and 250 square inches on the warming rack.
