gas grill What's better in the summer than firing up the grill and cooking outside on the deck or patio?  While traditional outdoor grills required charcoal and starter fluid, today's outdoor chefs have more options.  In fact, those who are looking for a no-muss, no-fuss experience often choose a gas grill.  Operators of a gas grill need only twist a knob for a hot, cooking-ready surface.  The result?  A delicious, grilled meal in a relatively short time.

A gas grill starts easily, warms up quickly and cooks more predictably than a charcoal grill, giving meat a barbeque grilled flavor.  Higher end models offer more burners, shelving and storage, as well as better construction.  Prices range from under $100 for a small portable grill to $1,000 or more for a large grill with extra burners and grilling accessories.

Gas grills use either propane or natural gas fuel.  The gas flame cooks the food directly or heats grilling elements that distribute the heat and cook the food indirectly.  Gas grills range in size from portable, table top grills to large commercial grills used in restaurants.  A typical gas grill that is designed for home use will have two or three gas burners, a steel rack filled with briquettes or steel plates to distribute the heat from the gas flame, and a painted steel or stainless steel cart with plastic handles.  A smaller grill may have only one burner, whereas a large grill may have four to six burners.

Basic grills are perfect for no-frills outdoor chefs who are cooking for four to six people.  These grills are usually small or medium sized, and feature a cast-aluminum firebox and hood surrounded by a cart.  The simplest grills have two wheels and little, if any, storage space.

grilling meat on a gas grill If you like to entertain occasionally, mid-priced grills might be a better choice.  These medium-sized grills are often large enough to cook for 12 or 15 people, and often feature higher-heat, recessed side burners, an electric igniter, a rotisserie or smoker tray, and a bit of storage space.

High-end grills have more frills and features, and can cook for 15 people or more.  Most high-end grills feature stainless steel construction, and they have all the features available on mid-priced grills.  In addition, high-end grills often have more burners and storage space.

Regardless of which type of grill you choose, pick a grill with stainless steel cooking grates, which will not rust or chip.  If moving your grill is important to you, be sure to choose one with four wheels instead of two.  And finally, battery powered igniters tend to work better — and be more reliable — than push buttons or knobs.  A lighting hole on the side or bottom of the grill will ensure that dinner will still be on the table on time if the igniter should fail.

Most gas grills have a lifetime warranty on their castings, three to ten years on their burners, and two to five years on other parts.  Generally speaking, it is best to look for grill models that feature stainless steel construction and longer warranties.  Here on, we feature access to selected grill stores and gas grill manufacturers for your convenience.
