No question about it, buying a gas grill can be overwhelming. As a matter of fact, the whole process can be pretty confusing – especially when you see talk of BTUs, rotisserie burners, infrared burners, and many other things you’ve never heard of, but it doesn’t have to be. To determine how good a propane gas grill is, some of the things I usually look at are its material, BTUs, total cooking area, and price. While stainless steel is an industry standard, there are some grills that aren’t made with this durable material. It’s a good thing to see that all the grills listed here use stainless steel in their cooking areas.
We love the Broil King Regal S440 Grill as it has the most BTUs. It delivers up to 60,000 BTUs on its dual-tube burners and side-burner. When it comes to cooking space, it takes the lead again with its 695 square inches. If an affordable grill is what you’re after, the Camp Chef Flat Top Grill is a perfect fit as it has an excellent price point also you can browse some propane grills under $200, $300 or $500. My personal favorite is the Weber Genesis Liquid Propane Grill it truly deserved to labeled as the Best propane gas grill under $1000. It was introduced in 2017 by Weber and has all the awesome features I look for in a grill: a large cooking space (646 square inches and an additional 198 square inches on the overhead warming rack), a superior grilling system, high-performance burners, and stainless-steel side workspaces. It is backed by a 10-year warranty, so you can be sure you’re buying an awesome grill.
