Picture this: it’s perfect outside on the longest day of the year. You’re surrounded by loved ones, and they’re all getting hungry after hours in the sun. Twilight is just starting to make its approach as you fire up the grill, an assortment of meats and veggies at the ready. Beer, margarita, or lemonade in hand, you preside over the evening’s deliciousness as people come up to chat with you. Some might even try some backseat grilling, but you’re the grillmaster. You’re responsible for the perfect char on those steaks. You’re the one who thought, “hey, let’s grill some pineapple too.” Of course, you’ll need a grill to make this fantasy a reality. Here are some of our favorites on the market today.

This powerful gas grill on wheels has electric stove-style ignition. Both the exterior and the burners themselves are made from durable stainless steel, which also contribute to the grill’s sleek aesthetic. The cast iron grates and grease pan are coated with porcelain, which is resistant to corrosion and easy to clean. This grill features a 10,000 BTU side burner, so you can sautee on the side should you need to. Altogether, this gives you 425 square inches of cooking space, including an upper rack for food items that require less direct heat.

This beast boasts 30,000 BTU burners and 529 square inches of cooking space on porcelain coated cast-iron grates. It has “infinity ignition,” meaning it will ignite with no issue every time, and this claim is supported by a 10-year warranty. The Spirit II is extremely convenient, with storage space in the grill cart, six hooks for hanging cooking tools, and a fold-out side table. Use the upper warming rack for toasting hamburger buns.

This grill gives you 240 square inches of grilling area. The circular grill top is non-stick and removable, so you don’t need to use the stand if you don’t want to. The stand does come with a convenient drip tray, so the whole set-up is extremely easy to clean. The biggest perk of this grill is its precise electric temperature control, as temp can be hard to tame when grilling. In the colder months, you can safely use this grill indoors.
