Forbes: The Best Gas Grills For Superior Backyard Barbecues

I’ve been a grilling enthusiast for as long as I can remember. But being completely devoted to charcoal for many years, I was late to discovering the wonder of the gas grill. I still love grilling with charcoal, especially while camping, but since starting a family almost seven years ago, I’ve switched over to cooking on a gas grill. Why? Because the best gas grills are much more efficient than their charcoal counterparts, and are much easier to use. 

When picking out a gas grill, there are a few basic factors to consider. The first factor is fuel. If you can hook up to a hard line of natural gas, then you won’t ever have to worry about replacing propane tanks, which can be cumbersome to stock up on, but a necessary added step.

Then you’ll want to consider grill size. If you plan on cooking a lot of food at once, you’ll likely need a model with 1,000-plus square inches of total cooking area. If, on the other hand, you’re only looking for something to cook a few burgers and hot dogs, then a smaller two-burner grill will likely be enough. And when considering your options overall, don’t forget about a top shelf, which easily adds to your total cooking area. 

Next, there are special features, like a rotisserie kit, side burners or cabinet storage, and other smaller details, like fold-down shelves and accessory hooks. They’re all there to improve the grilling experience, but be honest with yourself about which you think you’ll really use. 

Lastly, there’s price. While there are a number of good gas grills you can get for well below $500 (many on this list), if you’re looking to invest in something bigger with lots of features that will last for years, you’ll probably need to set your budget closer to $1000. 

With all those factors in mind, here are the best gas grills for summertime barbecuing and beyond. 

Best High-End Freestanding Gas Grill

Rockwell by Caliber Gas Grill

Having a built-in outdoor grill will cost you several thousand dollars if you want materials of decent quality, not to mention a decent built-in grill. So while the $10K price tag of this Rockwell from Caliber is steep, when you realize it not only negates the need for a built-in but means you can move your high-end gas grill anywhere on your property, the price begins to make sense. Plus, it’s stunning — with beautiful lines, integrated Brazilian cherry hardwood, and handsome hardware. And when it comes to cooking, this three-zone grill’s burners each crank out 20,000 BTUs that heat a 675 square inch cooking space.

Snyder Diamond (Santa Monica, CA)

Established in 1949, Snyder Diamond proudly remains an independent, family owned and operated company located in Santa Monica, Pasadena and North Hollywood. Snyder Diamond is a premier dealer of Caliber Appliances and kicked off their summer grilling with designer and Caliber grill owner, Kathryn Ireland. Ireland fell for Caliber’s 360-degree walk-around Social Grill, a grill designed exclusively as an installation for David Rockwell of the Rockwell Group, notable for its fully retractable ‘disappearing’ lid—a feature that Ireland loves, though its bright red color is what grabbed her attention first (it also can be any custom color). “The one thing I kept of my house was its red garage door, so I saw this and thought, ‘Oh, it’s crying out to be in my backyard,’” the designer says.

Or as Russ Diamond, Snyder Diamond’s owner puts it, “it’s her (Kathryn’s) Alfa Romeo.”

With so many of us pressing pause on any vacation plans that involve air travel this summer, the whole concept of a “staycation” has taken on new meaning—with our own backyards suddenly looking like the best bet for a safe retreat. Of course, being stuck at home isn’t so bad when your space actually looks and feels like a getaway. So when Snyder Diamond had the opportunity to check out the lush oasis of Kathryn M. Ireland (see picture above) they jumped at the chance with this summer grilling kick-off video.

See Ireland grill up storm with designer friend Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Snyder Diamond owner Russ Diamond in the video above.
