Grilling meat and vegetables over red, hot coals incorporates a new and different taste of the Smokey charcoal in the food. However, cooking over coal is not an easy task. It requires skills and knowledge about how to lit the coals, its quantity, and the arrangement of the meat and vegetables on it so that they don’t burn out. Due to the hassle involved in grilling over coals, people choose to buy grilling gas for its sheer convenience and ease of cooking.
Though gas grills lack the smokey charcoal flavour, they offer instant heat that beats charcoal. With the right gas grill, you can cook all types of BBQs, such as Masport BBQ, Charcoal BBQ, Broil King BBQ, Napoleon BBQ, etc. Gas grills come along with heat control nobs, which is a plus point for foods that may get wasted at 700-degree Fahrenheit on a charcoal grill. Choosing a simple gas is way easier than selecting a gas grill as gas grills come in a wide variety; therefore, selecting anyone can be a tedious task if you lack knowledge in this field. Here is a list of the top six gas grills that you should choose from:
Napoleon Rogue 425
This is one of the best all-rounder gas grills which you can use to cook all types of BBQs, including the Charcoal BBQ, Masport BBQ, Broil King BBQ, and Napoleon BBQ. Its high-quality material, 625 square-inch grill surface, even cooking, and extra luxurious benefits make it worth buying. Rooted in Ontario, Canada, Napoleon is manufacturing gas grills since 1976 and has a good reputation in the market.
Rogue 425 comes with four capable burners, stainless steel sear plates that prevent flare-ups, folding stainless steel side shelves, and an infrared side burner. It also comes with an optional tray that converts the grill into a charcoal pit. Rogue 425 is the best mix of high and low-temperature cooking evenness and also has a built-in thermometer.
Char-Broil Advantage Four Burner Grill
If you have a lesser budget than a Char-Broil Advantage is an ideal option for you. At just half, the price of a Weber or Napoleon gas grill, the Advantage Four Burner gas grill has the same basic features as present in them.

However, when it comes to grilling meat and vegetables, the evenly heated cooking surface of this gas grill out-performs every other gas grill that comes in its price range, which is quite surprising.
Advantage Four Burner has a 600 square inch grill surface, a side burner for boiling and sautéing, and a warming rack. It has a five-year warranty on the burners and a two-year warranty on the firebox. This is the best option for people who do not wish to use gas grills regularly.
Weber Spirit E-310

The grill comes with a ten-year warranty against corrosion and rust. The E-310 has a 529 square inch cooking surface, porcelain-coated exterior, and porcelain-coated grates. However, in the cooking test, Napoleon and Char-Broil outwitted the E-310 grill, but it was not a weak performer, though. If you are a Weber fan or just want a well-designed grill, then Spirit E-310 is the best option for you. It will cost you around $500.
Weber Genesis E-310
Genesis-310 is the most affordable mid-range grill line up from Weber.
