Top-Rated Gas Grills for Small Backyards & Patios
We know just about everyone would love a huge grill that lets them confidently cook for a crowd of any size, but we also understand that such a grill may not quite fit your lifestyle — or, more practically, your patio. For those who regularly feed only a few people or have limited outdoor space, BBQGuys® carries a huge variety of small gas grills that get the job done just as well as their larger counterparts. While these gas grills are on the smaller end, they can all still easily fit a dozen burgers or more, so it’s not like you’ll be stuck grilling for 1 with any of these models.
Our experts drew on more than 20 years of experience testing and selling grills when rating these small gas grills, specifically evaluating their quality, performance, and features. It was no surprise to see models from trusted brands like Lynx, DCS, and Blaze at the top of our list, which has all the best small gas grills on the market today. They boast the convenience and cooking power of larger grills in a more compact and space-saving design so everyone can enjoy the pleasures of grilling no matter their outdoor setup.
