Best Charcoal Grills Under 100$ – Battle of 5 models

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.

HOW TO USE: Assemble out of the box following the instructions in your manual (20 minutes). Then place on grill, as shown in your manual (5 minutes). Light charcoal (20 minutes); use a charcoal starter for best results. Preheat for about 10 minutes. Use your pizza peel to slide an uncooked pizza onto the stone. Your pizza's cook time is determined by grill temperature and your desired doneness. Use the peel to rotate your pizza halfway through cooking. When it is done, remove using the peel, slice, and serve.

PLEASE NOTE: The thermometer in your pizza kit has been calibrated to accurately measure the temperature of grill's cooking environment; the elevated position of the grill lid while the kit is in use may result in varying readouts on the thermometer.

CAUTION: Unit will become very hot. Wait for unit to cool before handling. Use heat-safe gloves if handling on the grill. Place on a heat-safe surface if removing from your grill.
