The Best Gas Grills for 2018

Gas grills can be bought for as little as $100USD or for well over $20,000USD, making them one of the most diverse product lines in the cooking market. At the bottom end, gas grills are small, lightweight, tend to be underpowered and are limited in what they can do. At the top end, temperatures are ridiculous, space is plentiful, and practically anything can be cooked on them. Since price is the biggest consideration when shopping for a gas grill, I have broken down my recommendations into ranges. Find the price area you are comfortable with and there you will find the best of the best in the gas grill market. These lists of the top grills are continuously updated as new products hit stores and as others disappear.

Price Breakdowns of the Best Gas Grills

Best Gas Grills under $250

There are not a lot of gas grills under $250USD these days. While these are the biggest sellers, stores and manufacturers don't make a lot of profit on them, so they want to steer you towards bigger and shinier grills. If this is what you can spend, look for simple, small, and black. Avoid shiny stainless steel and extra features. Side burners can be a nice addition, but they won't help you grill burgers and hot dogs, the two items that these grills are going to be cooking. As basic grills, with limited cooking capabilities, these grills are good enough to get the job done but don't expect them to last long, have even heating, or a lot of power.

Best Gas Grills between $250 and $500

Choices between $250USD and $500 can seem plentiful when looking around the hardware store, but many are poor quality and designed to be impulse purchases for people who have not done their research. Big, shiny grills with five main burners and a host of extras don't tend to last long, cook well, or offer a lot of power. The gas grills that I have selected in this price range tend to be relatively small and limited in features. It is the quality of the internal components and their ability to produce high temperatures and even heat that makes for a good grill. Most grillers do not need a huge grill, but size is a big marketing point. Avoid the biggest grills and stick with simple and avoid shiny.

Best Gas Grills between $500 and $1000

Moving up in the price scale brings bigger, better and more powerful gas grills. The models on this list produce even heating, limited flare-ups, and can put a serious sear on a steak. While they don't generally come with a lot of extras, accessories for these grills are plentiful and additions like rotisserie kits can be had to increase their versatility. I still recommend avoiding a lot of shiny metal or grills that are simply too big for their price tags, but there is a lot to choose from here.

Best Gas Grills between $1000 and $2000

Now we reach the price range of gas grill where we see products that are much more like actual cooking appliances. Here the grills are bigger, more powerful, and potentially loaded with extra features. Don't, however, believe that even up to $2,000USD is going to get a high quality, all stainless steel grill that will last for decades. So the question is, do you want an oversized grill loaded with extras or a grill that performs and lasts. This list is organized around the later. The grills I have selected have high and even heating with a durable body that will eliminate the need to replace the grill in a few years.

Best Gas Grills between $2000 and $4000

These are some serious gas grills. In this price range, it makes sense to consider all stainless steel construction because the price allows for the best metal. While these might not be the best of the best, they are some fantastic gas grills on this list. Many of these products come as part of a complete line of outdoor kitchen appliances and all are powerful and many are loaded with extras (or have practically anything you can imagine available for more money). I have filtered out the knock-offs and focused this list of the grills that will do the job, whatever that outdoor cooking job might be.
