Best Grills 2015 –
Unless you’re planning on moving to the North Pole any time soon, you may as well come to terms with the fact that summer is coming–and fast. This one is bound to be a scorcher, with expected record highs and plenty of humidity to ensure that you stay nice and toasty–not to mention sticky!–all throughout. Thankfully, there’s a lot to look forward to like afternoons at the beach, balmy evening breezes, tall cold drinks, and backyard barbecues!
Of course, in order to show off your grill skills to the utmost–or conceal their total lack thereof–you will need a bbq grill that does those meat grilling skills justice. We’ve helpfully put together a compendium of the finest grills available on the market, any one of which will meet the requirements of the most demanding grill-meister (or novice, for that matter).
Whether you are a certified grill chef or a weekender who has trouble telling a briquette from a brisket, these grills are definitely worthy of your attention!
Lodge Logic L410 Pre-Seasoned Sportsman’s Charcoal Grill: Price $94.99
From Lodge Logic comes a solid, reliable mini-grill that earns high marks for simplicity. This Hibachi-style cast iron wonder is just large enough to accommodate about four patties or two good-sized steaks, so those with bigger needs should probably look elsewhere. It is pre-seasoned though, so you get a nice touch of added flavor with every use.
Breville Smart Grill: Price $279.58
For apartment dwellers, grilling is a near-impossible and oftentimes impractical feat. With the Breville Smart Grill however, it becomes almost too easy! Featuring a decent 1,800 watts of heating power and an innovative temperature detection/control mechanism, the Smart Grill is everything that its name suggests. Three heat settings, a height-adjustable top plate, and a lid that can be opened 180° make the Breville Smart Grill the only indoor grill worth considering!
Charbroil Infrared: Price $390.46
For sheer power and efficiency, the Charbroil Infrared is pretty hard to beat. Equipped with three state-of-the-art steel burners pumping out 35,000 BTUs, the Infrared goes from zero to 700° within minutes! More than just brute force however, the Infrared also features an efficient design that actually prevents flare-ups, which according to our informal research, is the single biggest cause of grill-related culinary disasters in the world! Smoker and rotisserie capabilities make this scorcher a definite hot number!
Weber Performer Deluxe Charcoal Grill: Price $399

It comes in sizes ranging from the mini (which is still pretty generously-proportioned) to the large, and the Big Daddy of them all, the XXL.
Yoder Smokers – Price: $899
With a quaint and quirky steampunk-inspired design that can befuddle at first glance, it’s easy to disregard the Yoder Cheyenne as some sort of hipster-approved, gentrified grill. Don’t let its looks fool you though: beneath the trendy exterior lies a power and versatility that enables you to do everything from quick-and-dirty grilling to slow cooking–and even actual barbecuing–with equal ease and precision. With an offset fire box that applies heat indirectly to the cooking chamber, the Yoder Cheyenne delivers the unique flavor and tenderness possible only with the authentic barbecuing process.

Built for the demanding grill master for whom only wood grilling will do, the Traeger Texas Professional is quite possibly the most versatile and fully-equipped wood grill on the market today. The company’s own virgin wood pellets (good both for you and the environment!) are automatically fed into the burner, which along with the specially designed convection fan, ensures constant cooking temperatures throughout. Offering a full range of temperatures and a choice of eight pellet ‘flavors’, the Traeger Texas Professional is wood grilling redefined.
Saber Cast 500 P: $799
The Saber Cast 500 P is a gas grill that offers much more functionality than most such grills normally provide.

Basic in features but faultless in functionality, the Saber Cast 500 P provides great value for the money.
Primo Oval XL Charcoal Grill: Price $1269
Another Kamado-style grill, the Primo Oval XL is the only ceramic-grill made in the U.S. It is also one of the biggest, with its staggering 400-square inch grilling surface laying most of the similarly-priced competition to waste. Make no mistake: the Primo is a state-of-the-art grill, with features such as the split firebox, reversible cooking grates, and handy cart making the somewhat steep price more of a bargain than it would seem.
Lynx 36-Inch All ProSear: $6399
If you’re ready to retire your trusty weekend grill and move up to some serious firepower, the Lynx All ProSear is pretty much the only serious option worth considering.
