Grill Buying Guide


Cooking outside is an American tradition. We’ve come a long way with outdoor cooking. With so many grilling methods – for small to large gatherings – here are a few things to consider when choosing the right grill and accessories for you and your family.

Dinner for Two
When you want all the flavor without a lot of fuss.

  • Cooking – and cleaning up – is easy with electric, infrared and gas grills.
  • For small spaces or balconies, electric or wood pellet grills provide safer cooking that are apartment-approved.
  • A kettle charcoal grill takes a small footprint in 14-, 18- and 22-in. diameters.

Family of Four
When the family meal goes the extra mile.

  • A Kamado charcoal grill will let you show off your cooking skills, from basic grilling to searing, smoking, roasting and even baking.
  • Get a juicy, consistent cook with an infrared grill. Look for a gas grill with infrared side burners or rotisserie for a savory meal with easy clean-up.
  • For a weekend meal, smokers come in a wide range of sizes, starting at 250 square inches.

Backyard Party
When you’re feeding a small army of family and friends.

  • A barrel charcoal grill offers a larger cooking surface and a classic grilling flavor.
  • When grilling big with gas, consider a grill with a direct hook up to a gas line so you don’t run out of fuel.
  • Electric grills give a consistent, even cook that’s easy to clean up, too.
  • Larger smokers can smoke up to 50 lbs. of meat at one time for savory sensations on a large scale.
