The first ~grill night~ feels like a rite of passage every summer. It’s a little taste of fancy vacation restaurant food in your backyard — and a vacation is what we all deserve this year.
Wayfair’s grill section is not only filled with deals on select pricey stainless steel propane grills that look like transformers, but on affordable propane grills for the BBQ beginner. We found three big-brand options for less than $200.
There’s big MasterChef energy in the 360 square inches of cooking space on this full standing grill from CharBroil. Three primary burners ignite and warm with the push of a button and whip up 30,000 BTU. When your food is done, a swing-up warming rack offers 170 extra inches.
Patios with less space may still be able to squeeze in this two-burner propane grill from Thermos. It’s still able to produce 30,000 BTUs of cooking power and enough space to feed four people. Its stainless steel casing looks way more expensive than it is.
Extra-cramped balconies or less-frequent grillers may consider a tabletop gas grill instead. Royal Gourmet’s stainless steel model still provides three burners worth of flat-top grilling without necessitating a smokeless indoor setup.
