Summer brings with it the opportunity to enjoy outdoor barbecues and cookouts with friends. You want to be ready for such occasions. A quality barbecue grill is important for making all the food you and your guests will need. To make your buying decision easy, you need to know the five main types of barbecues, each using a particular type of fuel. These are:

  • Electric barbecues
  • Natural-gas barbecues
  • Propane gas barbecues
  • Pellet fueled barbecues
  • Charcoal-fired barbecues

Weber Genesis II E-310 3-Burner Natural Gas Grill 

The Weber Genesis II E-310 is a spectacular barbecue machine that relies on natural gas for an energy source. The E-310 has three grilling burners, a central burner that has a cover, and two burners on either side of this. This is a powerful machine with 37,500 BTU of energy generation.

In addition, this barbecue stands out in the sheer availability of grilling space. A tuck away warming rack helps you keep done food warm while you finish up with your other cooking. The E-310 costs $699.

RevoAce Dual Fuel Combination Charcoal Gas Grill

RevoAce boasts a lineup of outdoor cooking grills including electric and LP-gas models. Its Dual Fuel Combination Charcoal Gas Grill offers the best of both worlds. It uses either charcoal fuel or gas. This makes it easy to rely on gas when charcoal is not available, or the other way around. The RevoAce Dual Fuel Combination Charcoal Gas Grill has 557 square inches of cooking space and 188 square inches of warming space. It costs $199.99.

Traeger Lil Tex Elite 22 Pellet Grill 

Pellet grills have a disadvantage in that they tend to be costly, but they do have significant advantages as well. For example, if you buy the Traeger Lil Tex Elite 22 Pellet Grik, you can kiss goodbye to reliance on mains electricity or the natural gas lines. It boasts 6 cooking modes:

  • Bake
  • Roast
  • BBQ
  • Grill
  • Braise
  • Smoke

Wood based cooking offers the opportunity for fine-tuning your cooking and obtaining superior barbecue results. The Lil Tex Elite 22 Pellet Grill costs $699.

George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Electric Grill

Electric grills use one of the most reliable and convenient fuel sources: mains electricity. The George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Electric Grill is one such grill and has 240 square inches of grilling surface. This lets it make up to 15 servings at a time. It has 1600 Watts of power and comes with a non-stick cooking surface to make cleaning easier. This grill is portable, with a removable stand that allows you to transform the grill into a countertop device. For $89.99, it’s a steal compared to the other top barbecues on the market.

To Consider Before Your Purchase

While barbecues such as the Traeger Lil Tex Elite 22 Pellet Grill can be used for smoking meat in a slower process, you might want a dedicated smoker for such purposes. Barbecues tend to work best for softer cuts of meat that can be cooked relatively quickly, whereas smokers are better for tougher cuts.

Our Notes

  • Weber Genesis II E-310: To protect your grill from rain or other conditions, an official Weber Genesis II cover is recommended and can be purchased for around $77.

  • Traeger Lil Tex Elite 22: It takes up to an 18 lbs load of pellets.
  • George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor: This grill is apartment approved, making it a fit for those without outdoor space.

What Do They Say on Other Sites

“Don't know how I went so long without a smoker. The brisket and pulled pork we have done so far were amazing. Fairly simple to put together and easier to operate than my gas grill.” (Warren Meyer on Amazon)

“They claim they have great customer service but when you need service they do not have service people available to come to your house to repair the smoker instead they send you the part to fix it yourself, or you have to bring it to a Traeger dealer yourself which is not an easy task to load one of these very heavy grills yourself assuming that you have a vehicle capable to transport it.” (DAVID C. MULLEN on Amazon)
