Gas Grills: What to Look For
Shopping for a new gas BBQ grill often involves checking out your local hardware shop or big-box home improvement store. Most of us have bought gas grills this way at some point! But after purchasing that shiny new gas grill, you may have ended up replacing parts fairly early and often, or even replacing the entire grill. At BBQGuys, we believe that when you buy a grill, it’s a big investment that should be reliable for years to come.
Since 1998, it has been our passion to help grillers find the best gas grill, at the best price possible. We’re pleased to offer many of the top brands of high-end gas grills in the industry. Here are a few tips on how to find the perfect gas grill for your backyard:
Value - A grill's value shouldn’t be based solely on price. We believe value is a combination of features, design, functionality, engineering, quality of materials, and price. Make sure you shop for the best gas grill for the money, not just the cheapest price.
Durability - The construction of a grill should be a major factor you consider when shopping. Typically, the best quality gas grills are made of stainless steel, which is “graded” by material composition. Keep in mind that not all grades of stainless steel behave the same. The most common high-quality stainless steel used in gas grills is 304-grade, a type that holds up extremely well to the elements and will continue looking great for years. 316L-grade is an even more corrosion-resistant version of stainless steel, especially in salt-rich areas like coasts or where salt is used to de-ice roads. Marine-grade grills use this type of stainless steel, making them the ideal choice for seaside outdoor spaces. Some grills incorporate 443-grade stainless steel into the parts that are most susceptible to heat-stress. While the high chromium content of 443-grade stainless makes the steel expand less when heated, it remains as corrosion-resistant as 304-grade. Any of these stainless steel grades will help your grill resist the elements for years to come.
Performance - Cooking performance is determined by a number of factors including BTU, flame tamer design, burner design, and more. Gas grills that cook the best have wider temperature variances, more even heat distribution, and fewer flare-ups. We don’t live in the perfect world where you can try all of these grills before you buy, but you can check out our expert gas grill reviews to see how they fare in these important cooking performance categories.
Style - Your backyard patio or outdoor kitchen will likely be home to many gatherings with friends and family. When you have guests over, you’ll want a grill you can show off and be proud of! Gas grill designs have evolved over the years, and there are several styles available today. You might want to consider grills with sleek features like mirror-polished edges and control panel LED lights, just to name a few.
Gas Type - Gas grills are available in one of two fuel types: propane or natural gas. Natural gas is a utility and must be pumped into your home by a utility company. If you already have a natural gas fuel line in your home or will be expanding an existing utility line, a natural gas grill would be perfect for you. Propane, meanwhile, comes in portable or exterior fuel tanks. A propane grill might be what you need if you value the ability to move your grill from one location to another. The performance is the same no matter the gas type, but the gas fittings, valves, and connections will be different.
Service - Don't forget to consider warranty and customer service when deciding on your gas grill. The grills we sell have a reputation for durability, but should one of their parts fail, you’ll want to have a strong manufacturer’s warranty to fall back on. Check out our gas grill warranty page, as well as the customer service scores within our gas grill expert reviews to help guide your decision. Still need help deciding which grill is right for you?
