Grilling Season

It’s that wonderful time of the year ~ Grilling season

Whether you like gas or charcoal, here are just some tips on the best grills out there. Remember, when it come to grills, any grill can be a smoker and size does mater.  I recommend if you choose gas, have at least three burners.

Weber, once again, owns more spots on our Top 10 Gas Grill ListsWeber Gas Grill than any other manufacturer, but competitors are turning up the heat.  We love Webers because they are built so well, come with great warranties, and Weber is renowned for its tech support and huge inventory of parts going back many years.

Coming back from our 2015 list for another round against the champion are US manufacturing giant Char-Broil and Canadian grill makers Onward Manufacturing and Napoleon. Though all Char-
Broils are now made in China, their heritage goes back to 1853 and The Columbus Iron Works in Columbus, GA. Onward Manufacturing owns Huntington, Broil-Mate, and Broil King which occupy our first Char-broil Charcoal Grillthree low cost picks. Though they make many great mid to premium priced gas cookers that compete well with Weber, it’s hard to beat their entry level lines in the low cost market. And Napoleon, offers a quality selection of both charcoal and gas grills and smokers.

Many feature smoke boxes, and gas grills, with a little practice, can produce lovely smoked meals, but their extensive ventilation means they use a bit more wood than charcoal grills or smokers.  Be advised, cheap manufacturers often include “bells and whistles” like cut-rate sear burners, side burners, and rotisseries to entice you to buy their flimsy, low quality junk.  Many times the grills are built with low grade stainless steel held together with crumby fasteners that will rust and break apart after a couple seasons.

Please remember, if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.  Feel free to send me an e-mail to

Happy grilling everyone!
