Best Kettle Grills – 2019 Edition

If there’s a company that has made a name for itself when it comes to grills, it’s Weber. The grill that launched the company was the Weber 22-inch Kettle Grill and has appeared in numerous films and TV shows. While there are many replicas, none is as good. So, it should come as no surprise that it’s my favorite kettle grill.

What’s not to love about this grill? For starters, it has a cooking space of 363 square inches (which is more than enough for most of us). Secondly, it has a high-quality ash-catcher that makes cleanup a breeze. You can easily control its temperature without opening its lid and its wheels make it easy to move.

The name Weber appears on my list yet again thanks to the Weber 741001 Original Kettle Grill. Its features are similar to that of the above-mentioned grill but it has something the other grill does not – a 10-year limited warranty. Such a lengthy warranty should be enough to make you confident about your purchase. But its selling point has to be its excellent price.

Char-Griller makes an appearance twice on my list with the Char-Griller E06614 and the Char-Griller 16620. I love the former’s red color, even heating, precise temperature control, and the fact that it uses less charcoal. The latter is also a great choice because it’s insulated and consumes less charcoal. However, it happens to be the most expensive of them all.

Ending my list is Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared Grill with a large cooking surface (360 square inches), a porcelain-coated cooking grate, and a 10-year limited warranty.
