No need to sacrifice quality when your needs are smaller. This scaled-down Weber delivers great results. Reviewers are wild about it. Says one: "I am in love with this grill. It took about 2 hours to put together but the directions were great. I love that it is compact. I roll it in and out of my garage with ease. It cooks evenly and well. Wish I would have made the investment YEARS ago. If you are on the fence, hop off—you will be delighted!"
One shopper warns not to delay your purchase: "I hemmed and hawed about getting this BBQ and let it run out of stock twice! I wish I had followed my first instinct! It is fabulous and I wouldn't hesitate to get it again! Beautiful copper, and so functional! I'm super happy!!"
If your grill usually ends up a hot mess after grilling, have no fear — this one has porcelain-coated cast iron grates, which are rust-resistant, help prevent food from sticking and are easy to clean. "Have used this grill multiple times a week since the original purchase early spring," said one satisfied shopper. "Have seen similar [grills] on sale for much more than I paid and this grill has performed flawlessly for chicken fajitas, chicken breasts, burgers and twoiinch steaks. Highly recommend - have no regrets about this purchase with over three months heavy use. Even the automatic lighter still works."
This charcoal grill is small in profile but big on value at under $30. "Was skeptical at first but boy am I glad I made the purchase!" shared one backyard chef. "Half the trailer park already ordered their own and we are already talking about a trailer park grill-off competition during the holidays...It not only makes great food but it will also make you great friends. Cheers!"
This multi-talented grill and smoker may just become your new favorite toy — and conversation starter. It makes a great summertime treat-yourself moment or a fab Father's Day gift. Says one fan: "Pretty easy to put together, and looks great! So far we've used it a handful of times and no problems at all. Keeps temp and food always tastes great."
Smokers and Wood Pellet Grills
At once epic and unintimidating, this machine will make you wonder why you ever thought smoking meat was a big deal. It sets you up to succeed. "I get the exact perfect results every time I use the Masterbuilt electric smoker," says one happy shopper. "I have used other smokers and styles (Traeger included), but the consistent perfect smoke and cook I get from the Masterbuilt Analog Electric Smoker is important. The water pan in the bottom keeps the meat from drying out as fast, and since this uses a convection smoke circulation process (not a forced fan), it keeps the meat's flavors in the smoker and in the meat."
Wanna be the most popular backyard cook in the neighborhood? Here's your one-stop do-everything, feed-everyone command central.
And the crowd goes wild: "If you are wavering on to buy this or not, buy it. It does everything it says it can do. Easy to use and the flavor is out of this world. We've cooked burgers, chicken, tomahawk steak, pork chops and tonight a tri-tip roast. The direct flame is what sealed the deal for me."
With a temperature range of 180-450 degrees Fahrenheit, this pellet grill has 8-in-1 versatility to grill, smoke, bake, roast, sear, braise, barbecue, and char-grill with incredible hardwood flavor. "I've been using this grill almost daily for six months now and fell in love with it," shared one superfan on Amazon. "It is so darned easy to use and clean, keep foil on the drip tray thing and life is good."
For less than $100 you can bring home an outdoor pizza oven that's ingeniously designed to also serve as a standalone fire pit, a grill or a pizza oven. Just separate the pieces to change the use.
The Baker Stone pizza oven reaches a sizzling 800 degrees and can bake pizzas in less than two minutes! Cleaning is easy with the removable firebox. Oven is removable for easy cleaning and the unit is compatible with separate attachments (griddle and grill grates).
