Looking for some of the best gas grills on the market? You can spend $10,000 on a gas grill, but you don’t have to. You can get a great grill for so much less. My list of the Best Gas Grills between $1000 and $2000 has some amazing grills that can do so much more than just cook a burger.

Once we get to the Best Gas Grills between $1000 and $2000 we see a combination of the big manufacturer’s best products. Some are the holdovers from days gone. Others are part of the ever-increasing number of low-priced and low-quality stainless steel grills. I’ve compiled this list based on the quality of cooking performance and durability over appearance and features. Certainly, there are giant grills loaded with knobs, covered in shiny steel, and packed with extras, but few of those offer much in the way of performance.

First and foremost, propane grills should grill well, and at these prices, they should grill very well. Heat should be high and even and the construction should be top-notch. I favor the grills of old here. There was a time when you could expect a gas grill to last for decades, not just a few years. The top of this list is dominated not by ‘brands’ but by great grills.

While I have listed the propane version of these grills, they are all available as natural gas. Note that not all are convertible between the two fuel types, so make sure that you get the right version when purchasing. If you purchase a propane gas grill, they do not come with a propane tank. You will need to purchase this in addition if you don’t already have one.

MHP WNK4

MHP WNK4

Read the Full Review of the MHP WNK4

This is MHP’s number-one-selling gas grill. Built like a tank, this model has all the durability of old gas grills. It also has a wide range of extras that can be added on. Of course, this comes with extra cost, but side burners, infrared rotisserie burners, and anodized aluminum cooking grates (used in steak cooking competitions) can be added. This makes the MHP a more versatile product though it will bring up the price well above the base of around $1,600USD. I recommend buying this grill with the ‘SearMagic’ cooking grates though.

  • Primary cooking area: 433 Square Inches
  • Maximum BTU Output: 40,000
  • Construction: Cast aluminum body and lid
  • Cooking Grate Material: Adonized Aluminum
  • Side Burner: Available
  • Made in the United States
  • Warranty: Limited Lifetime on main components

Napoleon Prestige 500

Napoleon Prestige 500 Gas Grill

The Napoleon Prestige 500 gas grill from Napoleon has a good selection of features and doesn’t rely too heavily on low-grade stainless steel to dress itself up. The four main burners on this model pump out up to 48,000 BTUs under 500 square inches of stainless steel rod cooking grates. At around $1,500USD, this is a solidly built gas grill with plenty of space and versatility. There are some customizations to this grill, but the standard configuration includes an infrared side burner, which can be great for searing one steak at a time and is a lot of fun. It gets very hot, but a low simmer is a problem

  • Primary cooking surface: 400 square inches
  • Maximum BTU Output: 48,000
  • Construction: Cast aluminum cooking chamber and stainless steel components
  • Side Burner: Included (option of a standard or infrared burner)
  • Made in Canada with globally sourced components
  • Warranty: Limited Lifetime

Broilmaster H3PK1

Broilmaster H3PK1

Simple. Two burners. Around $1,200USD. Built like a tank. Broilmaster, a division of Empire Comfort Systems builds an old-school gas grill. Their grills produce high-temperature grilling in a body that can last for decades. The heavy cooking grates can be positioned to move the food closer or farther from the fire providing added versatility and cooking control. While the appearance hasn’t changed much in decades, this powerhouse of a gas grill pumps out 40,000 BTUs under 400 square inches of cooking space and uses a thick layer of ceramic briquettes to burn off drippings and radiate heat. This is a serious grill for serious grillers and comes with many potential customizable options.

  • Maximum BTU Output: 40,000
  • Construction: Cast Aluminum with stainless steel components

Genesis SP-E-335

Weber Genesis SP-E-335 Gas Grill

Read the Full Review of the Weber Genesis Gas Grill

Of all the models of the ever-popular Weber Genesis gas grills, this is the only one worth buying. This ‘special edition model has all the extras and in the right combinations. You get the superior 9mm stainless steel cooking grates, good quality, a 12,000 BTU side burner, and the 13,000 BTU ‘sear’ burner. This model comes standard with Weber’s Crafted Accessory frame (extra accessories) and storage space for those accessories. This model gives you the maximum grilling versatility for your money.

Broil King Regal S 490

Broil King Regal S 490 Gas Grill

True. This gas grill is loaded with features, but it still has the quality it needs to pull it off. The Broil King Regal S 490 has four main burners, a full rotisserie system, and a side burner (though underpowered). This is all standard in a large, but efficiently designed gas grill. Broil King has a number of innovative features to produce better grilling. The burners on this model are designed to compensate for the pressure difference from one end to the other, producing an even heat distribution. The heat output is high enough for serious grilling and the cast iron cooking grates do a lot to transfer the heat.

  • Primary Grilling Space: 500 square inches
  • Maximum heat output: 50,000 BTUs
  • Construction: Cast aluminum and stainless steel
  • Side Burner: Included
  • Made in North America
  • Warranty: Limited Lifetime
  • Features a full rotisserie system

Phoenix Grills SD

Phoenix Grill SD Stainless Steel Propane Gas Riveted Grill

The Phoenix Grill is built on the design of the now-defunct Holand Grill. A single (dual control) burner sits at the bottom of the grill. A large piece of stainless steel separates the flame from the food. This grill cannot flare up. There is no direct fire for grease to get to. Temperatures tend to be low and limited in control, but this grill can bake, steam, roast, and yes, grill. It is virtually foolproof. Constructed entirely of stainless steel, the Phoenix grill is owned and built by MHP (see the top of this list). This is a different grill. It’s not like any other model on this list. While this style of gas grill isn’t for everyone, it has a very loyal fanbase.

  • Main Grilling Area: 400 Square inches (no warming rack)
  • Maximum Heat Output: 25,000 BTUs
  • Construction: Stainless Steel
  • Side Burner: No
  • Made in America
  • Warranty: 10-Year Limited

PGS A40

PGS A40 Pedestal Mount

Read the Full Review of the PGS A40

PGS or Pacific Gas Specialties, like MHP or Broilmaster above, originates with the first residential gas grills and still builds grills in much the way they were in the early 1960s. Certainly, the design isn’t modern, but it isn’t about that. This heavy cast aluminum gas grill has a 40,000 BTU dual control stainless steel burner under a ceramic barrier under 434 square inches of stainless steel rod cooking grate. There are options available and like this class of gas grill, it can come in a number of mounting options. On the other hand, this is a basic grill that really grills. It also lasts.

  • Primary Grilling Area: 330 square inches
  • Maximum Heat Output: 30,000 BTUs
  • Construction: Cast aluminum with stainless steel components
  • Side Burner: Optional
  • Made in the United States
  • Warranty: 10-Year Limited
