Best Gas Grills 2018: Reviews of the top 15 natural gas and propane gas grills 2018If you want to be able to grill up some fabulous food in your backyard for your family and friends (or even just for yourself), you need a great grill. If you’re looking for reviews of the best gas grills 2018 has to offer, we’ve got you covered.

There are many gas grills out there with a huge variety of features. Picking out the right one for you can be a bit of a challenge, so before jumping directly to the reviews, let’s take a very quick look at what you need to know before you buy.

 

How To Buy A Gas Grill

The very first thing you’ll need to do is to determine which type of gas source you’ll be using to fuel your gas grill: Natural Gas (NG) which requires a hook up on your patio, or Liquid Propane (LP), which means you’ll be fueling your grill with propane from a tank.

The answer to this question will narrow down your choices. Many of the best gas grills on our list do come in either Natural Gas or Liquid Propane models, but not all!

This video here covers several other important aspects about Gas Grills in depth, such as the grate/grill material differences, the number of burners, flame-tamers, and the types of burners. Check it out:

 

To recap (or for those who skipped the video), you want to decide on the following:

  • How many burners do I want? The more burners you have, the larger the cooking area and the more versatility you have (you can cook with indirect heat, for example, or cook a variety of items at once). If you’re counting on cooking simple foods for 2 or 3 people, you’ll likely be just fine with 1 or 2 burners.
  • What kind of cooking grates do you want? Stainless steel and porcelain-enameled/coated cast iron are the 2 popular types.  (See this article on Stainless Steel vs Cast Iron Grills for more info, but in a nutshell, the heavier the grate, the better the sear and higher the heat you’ll get, and SS will last the longest, resisting rust better than porcelainized cast iron.)
  • Are Flavorizer bars important to you? These flame-taming systems that sit between the burner’s flame and the grill reduce flare-ups, protect the burners, and convert drippings into flavor-infusing smoke. Not all grills come with flame tamers, although many in this list do.

What features do you want? 

Obviously, basic models with no frills are easier on the budget. They can still do a fantastic grilling job, but sometimes some of the extras are worth paying for to make your grilling experience even better. Here’s a short-list of some of the extras available on some of the best gas grills 2018.

  • Side burner for cooking other dishes
  • Side shelves that fold down, reducing your grill’s footprint
  • Warming racks that tuck away
  • Rotisserie system
  • Built in thermometer and/or fuel gauge
  • Handle lights and/or control knob lights for cooking at night
  • Searing section
  • Smoke box
  • Infrared burners
  • Ignition systems that light each burner individually vs all at once
  • Utensil hooks to keep your workspace clean and neat
  • An enclosed cart or shelf style/open cart design
  • iGrill3 readiness (Bluetooth grilling app)

Napoleon T410SBNK Triumph Gas Grill   *TOP PICK*

Napoleon T410SBNK Triumph Natural Gas Grill: Best Gas Grills 2017-2018Company: Napoleon

Gas Type: Natural Gas

Rating: 5 / 5 stars

Price: $$

Besides the fact that this grill has a perfect customer rating so far, we think this grill offers FANTASTIC bang for your buck!

The Napoleon T410SBNK 3-burner grill is quite simply, an excellent entry-level natural gas grill. With this grill, Napoleon focused on making a product that does the basics REALLY well: Grilling! It doesn’t have all of the fancy bells and whistles that many people don’t really care about, and because of that, it comes with a price tag that will make most people pretty excited.

That being said, it’s no hum-drum cheap-o grill! It’s made of high quality materials, and has a great design that’ll make your grilling experience really enjoyable.  Some of our favorite features are:

  • Of all of the 3 burner grills we reviewed, this one has the highest BTU’s at 44,700
  • Other than the painted porcelain hood, and the grill grates, which are made of porcelainized cast iron, the whole grill is made of quality stainless steel.
  • The cast iron grill grates season up like a traditional cast iron pan for great cooking, without getting stuck
  • The shelves fold in for a smaller footprint when not in use, including the one with the range side burner
  • It has a handy integrated bottle opener so you don’t have to hunt down one while enjoying your grilling experience
  • It also comes in an LP (liquid propane) version (Model T410SBPK)

This Napoleon is a basic (yet very good quality) gas grill – it’s does a great job at exactly what it’s supposed to do: grill your food. It does not have all of the fancy extras, but then again, you aren’t paying for them either! We think you’ll be more than satisfied with this grill if you’re looking for an entry-level model that fits nicely on a smaller patio.

 

Weber 66004001 Genesis II LX S-340 Gas Grill *TOP PICK #2*

Weber 66004001 Genesis: Best Gas Grills 2017-2018Company: Weber

Gas Type: Natural Gas OR Liquid Propane

Rating: 4.8 / 5 stars

Price: $$$

This awesome natural gas grill is size-wise similar to the first grill, but it comes with a few extra treats for you! The Weber Genesis S340 is one of the best mid-priced grills out there right now. This grill is one of the “Best Value” winners for 2018!

Weber is known for it’s high quality gas grills. This one is no exception.  You can order the grill in black painted steel (hood and frame) or stainless steel, but the majority of either design is quality stainless steel, including the grill grates (7mm), 3 burners, and Flavorizer bars!

This grill has some features that help it deserve it’s high rating:

  • Weber’ GS4 High Performance Grilling System: Infinity Ignition, High Performance Burners, Flavorizer Bars, Grease Management System – put them all together and you have a grill that lights every time, cooks smoke-infused delicious meals evenly and consistently, and makes clean up a snap! The GS4 also lengthens the life of your grill, as the drippings that are not vaporized by the Flavorizer Bars are funnelled away before hitting the burners!
  • The stainless steel grill grates keep the heat consistent and give you those impressive chef-like grill marks
  • It has some fun extras like a handle light for night time grilling, utensil hooks, a side burner, foldable left shelf, and lighted control knobs
  • It’s iGrill3 ready – you can (purchase and) download the iGrill 3 app – a Bluetooth digital thermometer that actually monitors your food from beginning to end, giving you real-time temperature and even the fuel tank level on your mobile device.

This grill is definitely one of the best value grills you can find. Take a look at this video for a quick 3D peek at the grill!

 

 

Bull Outdoor Products BBQ 44001 Angus 75,000 BTU Grill with Cart 

Bull Outdoor Products Angus Grill: Best Gas Grills 2018Company: Bull Outdoor Products

Gas Type: Natural Gas or Liquid Propane

Rating: 4.8 / 5 stars

Price: $$$$$

This is one of the top high end natural gas grills on the market. You CAN find even bigger, pricier models, but this amazing grill by Bull Outdoor Products is an awesome option for you if you’re a serious back patio griller who want some of the fancy extras and a grill that cooks food that’ll knock the socks off your guests.

Jumping right to the many features that make this Angus grill one you need to take a look at:

  • 16 gauge, 304 stainless steel construction throughout! This is the SERIOUS quality stainless steel – the thickest used in the grill industry – making it extremely resistant to corrosion and rust.
  • The cooking area is an impressive 810 sq inches, with an additional 210 sq inch warming rack – you can cook up a huge feast all at once!
  • 4 wheels with locking castors to let you move it fairly easily (it’s heavy)
  • Dual-lined single-piece roll-top hood with seamless welded edges (keeps the heat neatly inside and the outside cooler to the touch)
  • Fun extras on the hood: a full length stainless steel handle, twin interior lights for better visibility, thermometer
  • Piezo igniters on each burner, with the spark area protected against food or grease drips with stainless steel housing
  • A rotisserie grill and 15,000 BTU infrared back burner (the grill has a chrome plated spit, and a stainless steel motor housing)
  • Lifetime warranty on the grates and firebox, and 20 year warranty on the 4 cast stainless steel burners!

The Bull Outdoor Products Angus Grill is one powerful and impressive grill! It does come with a nice price tag, but if you can afford it, this will likely be the last grill you purchase for a few decades, if not ever!

 

Char-Broil Classic 405 4-Burner Gas Grill

Best Gas Grills 2018: Char-Broil Classic 405 4-Burner Liquid Propane Gas GrillCompany: Char-Broil

Gas Type: Liquid Propane

Rating: 4.8 / 5 stars

Price: $

For those of you wanting just a basic backyard grill for under $200, but one that is excellent value for each of those dollars, this one is a great option for you!

It has space enough (405 sq inches) to cook a feast for your hungry crowd, a large warming rack that folds away if you don’t need it, and 4 burners so you can do that fancy “indirect grilling” to your hearts content. It’s sturdy, uses the standard size of propane tanks (20lb – and yes, there is a tank support bracket and hanger behind the grill so the tank doesn’t just hang dangerously).

We think this grill is your best bet if you aren’t looking for fancy extras – just a simple grill to get the job done. It does NOT have a side burner, rotisserie system, utensil hooks, or whatnot, but here’s what it DOES have:

  • Lots of cooking room (boasts that it can easily fit up to 18 burgers at once)
  • Lid and firebox is made of porcelain coated steel, which is durable and weather resistant – great for those of us who sometimes forget it cover it up after using it.
  • 4 stainless steel burners – stainless steel is one of the most durable materials for burners, PLUS you can control high and low heat much better with SS.
  • Push button ignition (Piezo system) makes it easy to start up your grill with just one finger!
  • 2 wheels that make it easy to move your grill to wherever your party is gathered, or even to move it to storage for a season, should you live where grilling year ’round isn’t so attractive.
  • Two decent sized side metal prep shelves (approx. 12″ x 13″) – you’ll love having those shelves for sauces, plates, utensils, timers, etc.

Overall, this grill is rated 4th based on the high reviews… the low price is a bonus! If you’re looking for a cheap, basic propane gas grill that’ll last a few years – check this one out! We don’t think you’ll be sorry!

Char-Broil Performance 300 2-Burner Cabinet LP Gas Grill

Best Gas Grills 2018: Char-Broil Performance 300 2-Burner Cabinet Liquid Propane Gas Grill- StainlessCompany:  Char-Broil

Gas Type: Liquid Propane

Rating: 4.7 / 5 stars

Price: $

Another high rated entry by Char-Broil in our Best Gas Grills 2018 list is this 2-burner liquid propane grill. It’s also under $200, and packs a lot of great grilling into a space efficient model!

This grill would be a great fit for those of you with a small area on your patio or deck for grilling, as it has a small footprint (43″ W x 24.5″ D x 44″H).  When you aren’t using it, you can also fold down the side shelves, reducing its size even more!

This grill has some great features!

  • Porcelain covered cast iron cooking grates and porcelain covered fold-away warming rack – you’ll love how rust-resistant and easy to clean they are! (See this article on seasoning and caring for cast iron grates.)
  • 24,000 BTUs for the 300 sq inch cooking area – it’s definitely not huge, but it gets a lot of even heat from the 2 stainless steel top-ported burners! If you don’t have to cook for a big crowd, you’ll likely be very pleased with this size (cooking space is 15.9″ wide and 18.5″ deep – room for approx. 16 hamburgers)
  • A temperature gauge set right into the lid – having one of these is AWESOME for those of you who like to control the heat in their grill based on what they are cooking
  • It has 2 metal side shelves that fold down when you aren’t using the grill – an extra bonus for those of you with a smaller grilling patio space
  • The storage cabinet keeps the (not exactly attractive) propane tanks nicely out of sight.
  • There are 4 wheels (2 of which lock) to let you very easily move the grill wherever it needs to go.
  • It has a removable porcelain coated grease pan for easy clean up! You can say goodbye to tin foil trays!

Overall, a great choice for a compact space. One customer review after another says that it’s a solid, quick-heating, well-built grill, good value for the excellent price!

 

 

Weber 54060001 Q2200 Grill

Best Gas Grills 2018: Weber 54060001 Q2200 Liquid Propane GrillCompany: Weber

Gas Type: Liquid Propane

Rating: 4.7 / 5 stars

Price: $

Are you looking for a gas grill you can take with you to the beach, camping, picnics, or pretty much anywhere? This portable gas grill is one of the best ones out there right now. With a compact shape but decent size grill area, fold up sturdy size shelves, and ergonomic handles, you’ll love taking this one with you on the go!

The Q2200 is one of the Q series of Webers – they look similar to each other in shape and style. The differences are in the size of the grilling area, the BTUs, and a few small extra bonus features that some have, and others don’t.

This particular grill is our top pick in the Q series as it combines a nice size (280 sq inches) with great power (12,000 BTUs on one stainless steel burner). It also has awesome ratings and reviews!

Let’s take a look at what you’d be getting:

  • A fully assembled grill right out of the box! All you need to do is attach a 14.1 or 16.4 oz LP cylinder (sold separately), flick the electronic ignition system, and let it heat up!
  • A handy thermometer built right into the lid so you can better avoid under or over-cooked food
  • The grates are split down the middle so if you’d like, you can order a Q2000 compatible griddle grate and use your grill as a griddle as well!
  • It’s made of serious grill materials: porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates and cast aluminum lid and body – it’s no cheap-o portable grill that will only last you one summer!

We think you can’t do better than this grill if you are looking for a decent sized portable gas grill. You’re getting Weber quality (which is tops… look at how many Weber grills ended up in this Best Of list), and a great price!

Weber 66000001 Genesis II S-310 Gas Grill

Weber 66000001 Genesis II S-310 Natural Gas Grill: Best Gas Grills 2018Company: Weber

Gas Type: Natural Gas or Liquid Propane

Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars

Price: $$

The Weber Genesis II S-310 is one of our favorites in this “Best Gas Grills” list – it combines quality, nice features, and great price all in one!  Weber is simply a name you can trust when it comes to grills, and the Genesis II design is one of their more popular lines.

This particular model comes in your choice of Natural Gas or LP (liquid propane) fueled, and also in your choice of black painted steel or stainless steel (pictured). Going the black painted steel route can save you about $100, and you’ll still get the side shelves and handle bar in stainless!

There are some fantastic features on this grill that we think you’ll love:

  • It has the new GS4 Grilling System, which includes
    1.  Porcelain enameled Flavorizer Bars (drippings smoke and sizzle, adding flavor to your meat… and whatever doesn’t “burn off”, funnels neatly down to the grease tray)
    2. Weber’s Infinity Ignition system that makes you sure you won’t have trouble lighting the grill EVER
    3. 3 high performance burners
    4. The new Weber Grease Management System that minimizes flare-ups and makes cleaning your grill simple!
  • Open Cart Design: You can use the bottom shelf for your tools and accessories, keeping your patio nicely organized! And if you go with the LP version, the propane tank remains hidden in the solid metal piece on the right side. The tank rests secured on a metal hook with a weight-gauge that lets you know how much fuel is left in your tank.
  • The 2 large stainless steel prep tables have integrated hooks for your utensils! You’ll love having a dedicated spot for your tools, especially when they are “dirty” with food grease and juices! Porcelain enameled cast iron cooking grates that nicely season, sear, and cook evenly! The grate is large enough to cook for a small crowd! You’ll get 513 square inches of cooking space along with 156 square inches of tuck-away warming rack overhead!

We also think you techies out there will love this grill as it is iGrill3 ready! It’s not included, but you can add this digital Bluetooth grill thermometer and monitor your food from your smartphone!

One last note about this grill is for you dog owners…  the “Open Cart Design” means no doors to protect the drippings pan from your hungry dog! You may find you don’t appreciate this… however your dog will probably love it!

Weber 57067001 Q3200 Gas Grill

Best Gas Grills 2018: Weber 57060001 Q3200 Gas GrillCompany: Weber

Gas Type: Natural Gas or Liquid Propane

Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars

Price: $$

If you’re looking for a gas grill for yourself and maybe your small family, or if you want a grill that won’t take up much space on your patio, the Weber Q3200 is fantastic choice. It’s not portable (detachable from the cart) like others in Q series, but you’ll love the look and shape!

Of the Q series, it’s the only grill that you can order in either Natural Gas or Liquid Propane fuel! If you’re looking at the Natural Gas option, you’ll be happy to know that it comes with the natural gas hook up hose!

Here are some of the features we like about this grill:

  • The grill cooking area is 393 sq inches, and sets out 21,700 BTUs, which is impressive for a grill this size!
  • Even though this grill is a smaller size (and with the side shelves that fold down, it’s footprint can be even smaller), it’s still made of top quality materials, including porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates and a cast aluminum lid and body. The cart is made of glass-reinforced nylon, and it comes with 2 handy wheels for easy portability.
  • If you want to go the Natural Gas route, it comes with the gas hook up hose – you won’t need to buy that separately, just hook up the included one to your gas source!
  • It has an Infinite Control Burner, which lets you set the grill to a certain temperature and trust that it’ll stay that temperature!
  • The grate is split in 2, and you can replace (at extra cost) one of the grates with a special griddle grate! Imagine using your grill for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
  • Handy special extras: It comes with a grill-out light on the handle that helps you grill outside in the dark, a built-in thermometer, and 3 utensil hooks, and a spot to stow away the included warming rack!

Weber grills in general are known to be top quality (note all of the Weber options on this Best Gas Grills 2018 post) – and this one is no different. We think you’ll love it!

 

Weber 62004001 Genesis II LX S-440 Gas Grill

Best Gas Grills 2018: Weber 62004001 Genesis II LX S-440 Liquid Propane GrillCompany: Weber

Gas Type: Natural Gas or Liquid Propane

Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars

Price: $$$$

If you’re looking for a high quality larger size grill, this 4 burner option from Weber comes with lots fun extras! It’s a serious grill for serious grillers!

Whether you choose the natural gas model or the liquid propane model, and select the painted black steel or stainless steel look, we think you’ll be as thrilled with this gas grill as the many product reviewers who gave it such a high rating!

Here’s why we like it:

  • It comes with Weber’s new GS4 grilling system: stainless steel flavorizer bars that capture the dripping grease and turn it into infusing smoke, the Infinity ignition system that ensures a perfect start every time, high heat stainless steel burners, and an unparalleled grease management system!
  • The SIZE of this grill – it’s HUGE! Your grilling area is 646 sq inches, PLUS the 198 sq in. tuck-away warming rack!
  • The grill grates are made of 7mm stainless steel, which is top quality! Some people do prefer cast iron grates, but stainless steel ones are considered top quality – they retain their heat extremely well, and last forever, looking like new! Plus, stainless steel grates require almost NO cleaning – just a quick brush off!
  • It has some fun extras that make grilling a great experience, not just a cooking session: a flush mounted side burner for making sauces and side dishes, utensil hooks to keep your station neat, lighted handle bar & control knobs, wheels that lock, is iGrill3 ready (Bluetooth thermometer app you can purchase separately), LED fuel gauge (LP models), and more!

Overall, if you are looking for a grill this size, and want something top quality and long-lasting, the Weber Genesis S-440 is one of the grills you need to be looking at!

 

 

Char-Broil Signature TRU-Infrared 325 2-Burner Cabinet Gas Grill

Best Gas Grills 2018: Char-Broil Signature TRU-Infrared 325 2-Burner Cabinet Liquid Propane Gas Grill Company: Char-Broil

Gas Type: Liquid Propane

Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars

Price: $

Next we look at one of the best grills on the lower end of the budget. We think you serious grillers who want either a smaller or cheaper option will be really pleased with what this 2-burner grill by Char-Broil has to offer!

It’s a liquid propane grill only – those who are looking for a natural gas grill should keep going, unless they want to purchase a fairly simple-to-install natural gas conversion kit (sold separately).  Yes, it’s also a cheaper looking grill than the some of the above (those Weber’s with all the stainless steel and painted steel are pretty sleek, aren’t they), but you do get what you pay for. And yet, it’s still a good enough grill to make it’s way solidly into the best gas grills for 2018.

Let’s see why:

  • It has a nice big grilling area for a 2-burner, coming in at 325 sq inches of cooking grates and 120 sq inches of warming rack (tuck-away)
  • The burners are top-ported 443 stainless steel tube burners, which put out high Infrared heat and even temperature control. Infrared burners heat up faster and maintain more even heat better than many traditional burners. And with the Infrared technology comes a special barrier grate that sits between the cooking grates and the burners, capturing all grease and drippings (making flare-ups history and seriously flavorful/juicier meat)!
  • The side shelves fold in if you need to decrease the grill footprint (perfect for smaller patios or apartment balconies)
  • The grill sits on 4 casters (2 have locks), so you can move it around with ease!
  • It comes with an enclosed storage cabinet for your propane gas tank but there’s also room for grilling tools, sauces, rubs, brushes, and more!

For a solid grill that heats up quickly, stays hot, grills up flavorful and juicy food without the nasty grease flare-ups, we declare this grill one of the best!

 

Weber 47510001 Spirit E310 Gas Grill

Weber 47510001 Spirit E310 Natural Gas Grill, Black: Best Gas Grills 2018Company: Weber

Gas Type: Natural Gas

Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars

Price: $

This grill, developed by Weber in 2013, was “Amazon’s Choice” for best natural gas grill for 2017 – you can bet it’ll be just as great and popular in 2018! It’s a perfect size grill for a small family or couple!

This isn’t an overly fancy natural gas grill, but it does have everything you need to cook great tasting, juicy food! In standard Weber style, it is built from high quality stainless steel and black painted steel, and has a clean, sleek look that’ll be a great addition to your backyard patio!

It also comes with the following features that we think make this grill a fantastic buy for your buck:

  • Porcelain-enameled cast iron cooking grates – cast iron seasons well, retains heat, and clean very easily!
  • The cooking area at 424 sq inches (plus warming rack) is big enough to cook a small (20lb) turkey or do meats and veggies at the same time!
  • SS flavorizer bars, that capture the grease drippings and turn them into smoke that infuses your meat with flavor AND keeps your grill clean!
  • Integrated utensil hooks on the sides of the stainless steel prep tables, so you can keep the tops clean and organized while you’re grilling
  • A front-mounted control panel and built in thermometer that gives you more control over your cooking
  • A flexible 10′ gas hose so you can connect to your gas line easily

This grill is also on heavy duty casters, so you can move your grill around the deck safely if you want to… perhaps you need more room for one of these fantastic outdoor games for adults? Or perhaps you need to store it away in the winter season. Either way, you can lock it in place or move it at will.

For a grill under $500, you can’t top this Weber Spirit E310! We think it’s a great choice for anyone who wants a good quality, long lasting, budget friendly grill!

Weber 67010001 Genesis II E-410 Gas Grill

Best Gas Grills 2018: Weber 67010001 Genesis II E-410 Natural Gas GrillCompany: Weber

Gas Type: Natural Gas or Liquid Propane

Price: $$

Rating: 4.4 / 5 stars

Once again, Weber adds another sleek and stylish, top quality grill to our “Best Of” list. This particular model, the Genesis II E-410, is one of the few that comes in a variety of colors (Black, Red, Copper, and Smoke), and also in either Natural Gas or Liquid Propane, so you can really customize to make it exactly to suit you!

The Genesis II E-410 is a large grill, able to cook enough to feed a crowd! It has one of the largest grilling areas of any of the grills featured here, coming in at 646 square inches (then add a 198 square inch tuck away warming rack). It’ll be great for cooking complicated meals that require various settings (steaks on one side, veggie kabobs on the other?), or for foods that are best cooked via indirect heat.

As you can see in the pic here, this grill has the open cart design. The Natural Gas model is pictured – the LP model has a steel shield of sorts on the right side under the shelf that hides the propane tank from view.  The open cart shelves design is great for easy grease tray removal, for storage of grilling tools, and more!

For the pretty impressive price, you get a LOT with this popular Weber:

  • The GS4 grilling system (SS Flavorizer Bars, 4 SS high quality burners, Weber’s improved Grease Management System, and the Infinity Ignition that guarantees an easy light up each time).
  • The grill grates are porcelain enameled cast iron, which clean up easily and retain heat really well (great sear marks, even cooking)
  • 2 large SS prep spaces that have integrated utensil hooks that will let you have a neat and tidy grilling area
  • It’s iGrill3 ready (digital Bluetooth thermometer system)
  • It has a fuel gauge on the LP models, so you’ll never run out of propane mid cooking!
  • Reviewers say this grill comes with the best assembly instructions ever! (Always a plus.)

While this grill doesn’t have a ton of bells and whistles (no handle lights, no rotisserie, no side burner…), if the large grilling area size and top quality burners/grates are what’s most important to you, this grill is one you shouldn’t pass up!
