The Char-Broil Classic is a more permanent installation than some others on the list, featuring four 48,000 BTU primary burners, a 480 square-inch cooking area with 208 square-inch warming rack and two-door storage area. The easy push button electronic ignition makes grilling a simple task; however, the bargain price is reflected in the build quality and use of stainless and painted steel, which, while giving the BBQ a great look, leaves the appliance susceptible to rust over time.
The Weber Smokey Joe Silver Charcoal Grill is the most basic grill on the list and the most limited; but it is also the most affordable and perfect for small needs and balconies. The black grill has a porcelain enamel coating to prevent rusting, which means it will be fine outdoors when not in use. The legs are not very sturdy, it isn’t easily portable, and cooking can get rather smoky. However, for a budget BBQ, this is a solid choice.
The Coleman RoadTrip LXE, as the name suggests, is designed for use on the road, being fully collapsible with a shipping weight of 60 pounds for easy transportation. It’s not just camping and tailgate parties where the Coleman performs though; 285 square-inches of cooking space provides plenty of space for feeding the family and the controls ensure a fuss-free cooking experience. There is a lot to love about this grill, but cooking is let down somewhat by the two 10,000 BTU straight burners focusing heat at either side rather than the middle. This flaw prevents the Coleman RoadTrip scoring higher in our best BBQ grill reviews.
If you are looking for a top performing gas grill that is not going to take over your porch or balcony, the Dyna-Glo Smart Space Living Propane BBQ is it. The grill can be assembled and ready for action within an hour and provides 547 square inch of total cooking space for serving a choice of food for guests (4-6 people). The steel is thin, but this does not harm insulation and cooking benefits from electronic push button ignition and 30,000 BTUs that provide even heat distribution. A great grill at a great price.
Weber is the premier name in grills and it’s no surprise to see one of their units featuring as our best BBQ grill of 2016. The liquid-propane gas version of the Genesis is simple to use thanks to its individual electronic ignition system and built-in thermometer, and with 637-square inches of cooking space, includes flavorizer bars, meaning no one will be going hungry. The Genesis is well built, easy to assemble and seriously impressive.
