What to Consider When Buying a Grill


Gas grills are the most common and that's because they offer a low barrier to entry, ease of use and can regulate temperatures much more precisely. Basically, you can cook nearly anything on a gas grill and it'll work out pretty well — versatility is another strong suit of the gas grill. Some things you definitely need to keep in mind when looking for gas grills are your cooking space, the number of burners and the maximum temperature. Great cooking can definitely be done quite easily with a gas grill.


Something you absolutely need to have when buying a charcoal grill is air vents. This will give you much more control over your temperature, which affects everything when you're working with a charcoal grill. While (some) gas grills can have trouble maintaining a consistently hot temperature across the entire cooking area, charcoal grills excel in this department. Essentially, charcoal grills are for purists and definitely lack the ease of use of gas. Sure things can go poorly, but when things go well there might not be a better grilling experience.


Pellet grills aren't as niche as they once were, and when they're firing on all cylinders they can do things that other grills just can't. Pellet grills rely on technology in a big way, so if you're buying one, be sure that your Wi-Fi is up to par because you'll likely need it. Once you've got everything sorted out and your grill set up, you're just a few hours away from a perfectly smoked brisket — which is what pellet grills are best at.

When Is the Best Time to Buy?

Like most things you buy for your yard, fall is the best time to get a great deal on a grill thanks to the end-of-season sales that follow Labor Day. This is definitely not the only good time, though. We see deals starting as early as Presidents' Day as retailers get rid of last year's models and run promos on some of the newer releases. Plus, Memorial Day and the Fourth of July are big holidays for shopping grills as well.
