Weber 14501001 Master-Touch Charcoal Grill, 22-Inch, Black
Our rating:

This is our first choice as it is a kettle grill which is the signature of Weber. It is also their premium charcoal grill. It is big for a kettle grill measuring 22″ in width and it has 443 square inches of cooking area, including a warming rack. You can easily cook 12 burgers on this grill.

The lid and the bowl are both made from porcelain-enamel which keeps the heat in and maintains the temperature. Even cooking is also assured. Porcelain-enamel is strong and durable and will prevent rust, cracking, and peeling even with high grilling temperatures.

There is a built-in thermometer so you can keep an eye on what the temperature is inside the grill without opening the lid and letting out heat. You can control the heat by just adjusting the dampers and you don’t need to open the lid to do this. When you want to extinguish the coals you just have to close all the dampers.  If you do need to remove the lid there is a handy lid holder on the side of the grill. 

Other benefits of this grill include a hinged cooking grate which makes it easy to add coals while you are grilling. There are hooks so you can hang your utensils on them and there is a large ash catcher making it easy to clean. Finally, there is a heat shield which helps to prevent the lid handle from getting hot.

Weber 54060001 Q2200 Liquid Propane Grill,Gray
Our rating:

If you are looking for a portable grill that you can take camping or tailgating and can use equally as well at home, this is the grill to go for. It works on 1-pound disposable liquid propane bottles which last for around a couple of hours.

The unit is strong and durable. The lid and body are cast aluminum, while the cooking grates are porcelain-enameled cast iron. The burner, which puts out 12,000 BTUs an hour, is stainless steel.

Other benefits to this grill include an electronic ignition, a built-in thermometer, a removable drip pan, a large grip handle, 2 folding worktables, and side handles, making it easy to move.

Our rating:

If you are looking for a liquid propane gas grill you won’t go far wrong with this one. It is made from stainless steel which retains heat and protects the grill from adverse weather conditions.
