You want to know what is the number 1 best gas grill for the money, so when you come to make a purchase, you’ll be armed with the knowledge needed to make it a good one. Well, today is your lucky day, because I’ve compiled a list that provides you with a countdown; the ultimate countdown of the top five best value gas grills on the market.

 

Char-Broil Classic 4-Burner Gas Grill

Char-Broil Classic 4-Burner Gas Grill with Side BurnerBuyers want space and power from a gas grill; these are the two most important things they look for, and the Char-Broil Classic has both. It has 4 main burners heating at a total of 40,000 BTU’s an hour, a side burner at 10,000 BTU’s an hour, and a total of 480 square inches of space, expanded to 665 square inches when you include secondary cooking space. You’ve probably seen 4 burner grills with this kind of power before, but what makes the Classic truly special, is that it costs less than $200. When you add the fact that its side burner, is so powerful that it can be used to grill meat as well as sauces, and that it has cast iron grates; it becomes a really great deal. The entire thing is made of quality stainless steel so it’s very durable, but they’ve intelligently chosen a light grade of steel to keep the weight down, and as such the Classic weighs only 114 pounds.

Weber 51010001 Q1200 Liquid Propane Grill

Weber 51010001 Q1200 Liquid Propane Grill ReviewThis is another gas grill with lots of space and power; plus you get the added extra of Weber’s world-renowned design skills. What most online reviews of the Q1200 tend to spend little time discussing, is how Weber have made this an exception grill to operate. Aside from looking great, with its splendid side-shelves, and streamlined cooking area, the Weber 51010001, also cooks up a storm. The cooking surface is 189 square inches, and the tall lid makes it possible for buyers to put whole Chickens or Turkeys inside for family dinners. The grates hold heat incredibly well, and here’s the fun part; you can take the grates off, replacing them with Weber’s Q1000 Griddle, and have a 2 in 1 cooking companion. The electric ignition starts up quickly, is very reliable, and as you might expect from Weber, everything tastes great. On top of all this, at 28.1 pounds the Q1200 is very portable, and the best gas grill around for tailgating. We cannot recommend the Q1200 more. The Q1200 is entirely put together to provide buyers with a pleasurable experience, grilling wonderfully tasting food. Read Full Review…

 

Aussie 205 Stainless Steel Tabletop Gas Grill

Aussie 205 Stainless Steel Tabletop Gas Grill ReviewThe Aussie 205 makes it onto the list because of it’s $85 price (all prices are approx). You’re not going to find a grill at this price point that offers what the Aussie 205 does. It’s very portable, weighing only 20.4 pounds, and it’s made entirely of stainless steel, for amazing durability; $85 will last you a very long time. You also get 305 square inches of space, 12,000 BTU’s, and a locking hood for transportation ease. The locking hood really is an excellent inclusion, because most portable gas grills, suffer damage over time, due to frequent car journeys, and the lock secures the cooking area completely. While there’s only 1 burner, you wouldn’t expect more for $85, but the burner included performs well, and with good grates that hold heat, your food will taste great. Read Full Review…

 

Char-Broil 26,500 BTU 2-Burner Gas Grill

Char-Broil 26,500 BTU 2-Burner Gas Grill ReviewAt $99, Char-Broil 26,500 BTU, comes in at four on the list of best gas grills, just behind the Aussie 205, but there wasn’t much separating these two, in terms of bang for buck. One thing I could point at, as to why the Aussie 205 has a slight lead over the Char-Broil, is that the Char-Broils grates aren’t as good. But, they hold heat fairly well, and buyers won’t have complaints about the taste of food; certainly not at $99 (all prices are approx). You get 280 squares inches of cooking space, which is more than enough, and the piezzo ignition system, is possibly the best budget start-up mechanism around. It’s free standing, so you don’t need to take something away with you to place it on, and the weight is only 46 pounds, making it easy to transport. Read Full Review…

 

Cuisinart CGG-200 All-Foods Portable Propane Grill

Cuisinart CGG-200 All-Foods Portable Propane Grill ReviewIf you drew a picture of your ideal grill, it would probably look something like the CGG-200. It’s something behold with its giant lid immediately capturing the imagination, but looks aren’t everything. Fortunately, once you’ve finished looking at the CGG-200 you’ll find it also has a 12,000 BTU burner, a terrific heat distributing panel, and versatile settings, that allow buyers to grill anything from pizza, to vegetables, to meats, and kebabs. Astonishingly, the CGG-200 can reach temperatures of 500 degrees very quickly, while most other grills have a 470 max heat. They’ve thought about cleaning too, with the entire surface porcelain-enamelled, so a light wipe will be enough to completely cleanse. And, they’ve kept the weight down to 37 pounds without compromising durability, by using light grades of aluminum and steel. A beautiful, and exceptional grill. Read Full Review…

 

Bottom Line

Anyone of these gas grill would give you excellent value for money, with the Char-Broil Classic being the standout product of the bunch. So, it depends on what you want, and you should take a look at the features of each one, asking yourself how you plan to use the grill, and what makes a grill, the best grill for you? Certainly the Aussie 205 and the Char-Broil 26,500 are the lowest priced grills here, but they don’t offer as much as the Weber Q1200 and the Char-Broil Classic, so didn’t make the top two. They are however more portable, so choose carefully based on your own personal needs. Thank you for reading.
