Charcoal grills may be versatile, but they’re also finicky, requiring both skill and constant attention when in use. Gas grills, on the other hand, win on convenience. They’re easy to ignite, quick to heat and hold their temperature over long periods of time with little attention. Sure, they’re also pricey, but well-designed gas grills are easy to care for, with little clean up or overall maintenance, promising years of grade-A barbecue. It’s not surprising then that most grills sold today are fueled by gas, whether it be liquid propane or natural gas. These are the three to consider depending on your budget.

Huntington Cast Aluminum 24025HNT


Best Value: Huntington’s simple Cast Aluminum 24025HNT is a great introduction to gas grills, and ideal for small families or groups of friends. It’s made in America, produces 25,000 BTUs and retains the heat thanks to the die cast aluminum cook box. For less than $200, it can’t be beat.

BTUs: 25,000
Primary Cooking Area: 240 sq. in.

Lynx 36-Inch All-Sear Grill with Rotisserie


Best All-Around: One of the finest luxury grills known to man, Lynx’s 36-Inch All-Sear Grill consists of three proprietary ProSear-2 infrared burners, each boasting 23,000 BTUs — for a combined 69,000 BTUs. Its main and secondary cooking areas offer 935 square inches of grilling area and a dual-position, three-speed rotisserie (with 14,000 BTUs) allows for slow roasting. Sure, it’s expensive. But good things in life sometimes are. (Looking for something under $1,500? Consider the Weber Summit E-420.)

BTUs: 69,000
Primary Cooking Area: 640 sq. in.

Kalamazoo K750HT Hybrid Fire Freestanding Grill


The Grail: Available in an array of sizes (or with a side burner), Kalamazoo’s flagship freestanding grill is the mack daddy of outdoor cooking gear. It’s fully customizable, starting with laser-cut grilling surfaces in a range of different patterns for meat, fish or vegetables. Its big distinction, however, is that the grill is designed with the ability to cook in conjunction with charcoal or wood for slow, sustained heat, high searing, or any combination of techniques.

BTUs: 72,750 (Liquid Propane)
Primary Cooking Area: 726 sq. in.
