March is in sight and barbeque season won’t be far behind! For those of you in the market for a new gas grill this year, we’ve summarized the top four gas grills as reviewed here. For those of you who are already fans of gas grills, you already know that they may not produce the slow-cooked smoky flavor that a charcoal grill provides, but they are much easier to maintain and much quicker to use!
#1 PICK – Weber Genesis – To summarize, the Weber Genesis offers great heating consistency, a large cooking area and a classic sleek look. While not inexpensive at almost $700, the Genesis is well worth the money if you grill often. The grill heats quickly, taking only eight minutes to reach 500 degrees and also has a small warming rack as well. And you can plan to invite a crowd as the deep grate enables you to grill 24 uncooked burgers at the same time. It has the ability to hook to a natural gas connection if you have an easily accessible one in your grilling area and also features four swiveling caster wheels that can move in any direction. Weber offers a 10-year warranty on the burners and a 2-year warranty on all other parts.
#2 PICK – Napoleon Mirage – At $999, the Napoleon Mirage offers stainless steel construction with a whole lot of bonus features not found on other less expensive grills. It features infared rear and side burners, a rotisserie burner and can be connected to both propane or natural gas. In addition it has an integrated ice bucket for keeping drinks and meat cold and a cutting board. If you’re a fan of charcoal, this grill also offers you the option to grill with this method if you like to change it up on occasion. Napoleon is also known for its great customer service, offering a limited lifetime warranty on the burners and a 5-year warranty on other parts.
#3 PICK – Broil King Baron – At less than $620, this is a more budget-friendly option that still offers great solid construction. The Broil King Baron has cast-iron grates and four main burners along with a side burner for veggies and side dishes. While it doesn’t feature many extras and has a smaller capacity (only 15 burgers can be cooked at the same time), it is still a solid grill that does a great job at the basics. You can also purchase additional accessories for the grill such as a skewer rack, cutting board and rotisserie kit, just to name a few. It offers a 10-year warranty on burners and a 2-year warranty on other parts.
#4 PICK – Char-Broil Class 4-Burner – For the griller who doesn’t need many bells and whistles, this grill is for you! At around $325, this stainless steel grill is affordable while also being a solidly made. It can cook up to 24 burgers at a time while also keeping up to 8 buns warm in the warming tray. Plus it has an electric ignition for quick and easy startup. Be aware that it only offers a 1-year parts warranty.
