Pro Series 575 Grill Black

Traeger is well-known for its large selection of pellet grills that can grill or smoke large quantities of meat at a specific temperature. You can heat the pellets over indirect heat to avoid flareups, but still get a rich, smoky flavor. Pellet grills are lighter than charcoal grills. They also require less maintenance. Simply plug them in and make sure that the hopper is full. This pellet grill has an 18-pound hopper and will burn for a long time.

We liked this pellet grill the most out of all the ones we tested. It has a solid construction that is easy to move and simple controls. The app can be connected to the grill so that you can remotely monitor the temperature, which is useful for overnight cooking of brisket. We also tried chicken, steak, and ribs. The meats developed a subtle smoke flavor.

Classic Joe II

Kamado Joe’s Kamado Grill is the best kamado-grill. The thick ceramic walls of the grill retain heat well and can withstand temperatures up to 750oF. You’ll find many accessories, including a thermometer, side shelves and an ash removal tool. You can also use it as a grilling grate with two levels.

Kamado grills heat charcoal and can be used at low temperatures or high temperatures. It is also possible to make pizza at high temperatures — this is one of our favourite uses. It’s heavy so the stand makes it easy to move around. It has a lid seal that allows for soft closing and vent markings to help control smoke levels and temperature.

  • Fuel type: Charcoal
  • Dimensions: 26.4″x26.4″x36″

Traveler Portable Gas Grill

This portable grill can be used as a substitute for your main grill. The grill is strong and durable and can be used year round. However, it folds up easily and is light enough to carry around. It has a latch that secures the lid when folded. This was a big plus for our pros. Cast iron grate can hold up to 15 burgers. It heats up in under 10 minutes.

Our tests showed that chicken and steak had beautiful sear marks and there were no flareups. The igniter button lights the grill and it uses a one-pound propane fuel tank. You can also purchase an attachment to allow it to use a full propane tank. The disposable drip tray makes cleaning up easy and is not common on portable grills.

The Weber Travel Q is a portable grill that doesn’t require wheels. It scored highly in our portable grill test.

The one-pound propane tank attaches securely to the attachment at the back of the grill. The button presses the start button. There are two dials that heat the outer and inner rings of the burner. The grill’s sturdy, balanced feet make it easy to transport. The grease-collection tray can be found inside the grill’s body. It can be drained and washed in the sink using soap and water.

We were impressed by the large cooking surface and ability to get deep sear marks with no flare-ups during our grill tests. It made delicious steaks and chicken thighs, with crisp skin and very few burnt marks.

Pulse 2000 Electric Grill

This Weber electric grill works well in places that don’t allow outdoor grills. It is easy to plug it in, and it will heat up to the temperature you desire using the digital precision control. The Weber Connect App allows you to remotely monitor your grill and food temperatures. It also features dual cooking zones that allow you to grill two different types of foods at once. It will need to be preheated, so you will have to wait. However, the digital thermometer will let you know when it has reached the correct temperature. You can use it as a tabletop or grill cart (sold separately). The control panel can be removed so that it can be stored indoors, while the rest can be left outside.

The grill was easy to use and cooked a strip steak to 145°F in eight minutes. In under 30 minutes, chicken thighs were also cooked tender and golden.
