There are two things I love about charcoal grills: They sear meat to perfection and give food a unique, smoky flavor. But it can be hard to find the perfect grill if your budget is $100. That’s why I’ve taken it upon myself to find the best charcoal grills under $100. All you have to do is go through the list and find one whose features you love.
Of all the grills I researched, the 22-inch Weber Original Kettle Charcoal Grill stands out from the rest because of its stylish design and excellent price. It perfectly grills meat and vegetables thanks to its circular shape that creates a convention heating system. Its awesome venting and large space enable it to smoke meat and vegetables easily and efficiently.
While the Char-Griller Table Top Charcoal Grill may be the most affordable on this list, it must be used on a table top. Its counterpart, the Char-Griller comes with wheels that make it easy to move. But the most portable grill on this list is the Pinty Portable Folding Charcoal Grill as its legs fold quickly for easy transportation and storage.
When it comes to cooking space, the Weber Kettle Grill tops them all. It has 363 square inches while all the others have 250 square inches. The PizzaQue Grill is perfect for making pizza (pizza lovers rejoice!).
While all the charcoal grills listed here hold their own when it comes to grilling, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better charcoal grill for $100 than the Weber Grill Original Kettle Grill.
