Grilling summer recipes is the best way to celebrate summer. You need the right grill and accessories to make delicious food perfectly charred. This will make it quick, simple, and easy to do.

We have tested over 65 grills in the Good Housekeeping Institute Culinary Innovation Lab and Kitchen Appliances. To determine the grill’s ability to sear meats properly, we have cooked over 70 steaks and 280 chicken pieces. We also monitor flare-ups and smoking. To test how evenly the bread heats on gas grills, we also toasted over 1,000 pieces of bread. We also evaluated useful extras such as side tables, tool storage and wheels for portability.

Genesis II EX-335 3-Burner Natural gas Smart Grill in Black

Our grill tests consistently show Weber grills as the best. The brand’s newest Genesis II EX-335 Smart Grill is one of its best. The Genesis II EX-335 Smart Grill toasted bread evenly during our heat distribution test. It also produced a delicious steak with gorgeous grill marks and a juicy center when tested for flare-ups and searing. Two temperature probes are included that enable you to check the internal temperature of your food via the Weber Connect app or directly on the control panel.

It’s packed with smart features. There are also large side shelves, knobs that illuminate, and knobs that attach to the lid handle. There are three burners, one searing section and one side burner. The Weber Genesis II E-310 is a cheaper alternative that offers similar features and performs well in our tests.

4-Burner Propane Gas Grill

It is not easy to find a high-quality grill under $500. However, the NexGrill 4-Burner Propane Gas Grill offers excellent value for money. The grill produces perfect grill marks and has enough space to hold 28 burgers. It also boasts a shiny stainless steel exterior. There’s also a burner on the side for sauce or heating beans. The best part? We didn’t see any smoking or flareups while cooking.

Spirit II E-310 Propane Grill

This three-burner stainless grill is perfect for cooking. It produced steaks that were perfectly rare and tender in our tests. The chicken came out of the grills golden brown and moist, and there were very few flare-ups. It has remained hot and fast for over a year and has beaten the New York City elements.

It has many useful features, including sturdy side shelves, tool holders, and a shelf for extra items. The propane tank holder is a great feature that allows you to see how much gas is remaining in your tank. It includes porcelain-enameled cast iron grates that can cook up to 25 hamburgers

  • Fuel type: Propane, natural gas
  • Dimensions: 44.5″x52″x27″

Commercial Tru-Infrared Gas Grill

The Char-Broil grill was quick and even heated in our tests. It didn’t ever flare up. The grill was easy to turn on and heated up quickly enough to cook chicken and steak without scorching. The model is equipped with Char-Broil Tru-Infrared technology. This is a large, metal plate that sits under the cooking grates and captures the food’s juices while it cooks. The juices are infused into the food through steaming, which infuses it with more flavor than if it were grilled. Flare-ups are also prevented by this design. The results were not dry but juicy.

We liked the Char-Broil’s excellent cooking performance and the two-knob design which was simple. It responded quickly to adjustments. The entire grill can be moved and stored away when you are done with cooking.

  • Fuel type: Propane, natural gas
