Above $2000, Gas Grills start getting shiny and in a good way. At this price point, we start to see what looks like professional grilling equipment. I would argue that nothing here is that good, but there are definitely some great grills to be found in the best gas grills between $2000 and $4000 (based on a combination of suggested retail price and actual retail price). Due to a dramatic increase in stainless steel prices, many great grills have moved out of this price range. But your BIG Choice is the difference between an all stainless steel gas grill like the Artisan American Eagle or American Outdoor Grill, or a gas grill packed with features but still made primarily of cast aluminum and enameled steel.

When shopping for one of the best gas grills between $2000 and $4000 there are a few things to be focused on. I know that this sounds like a lot of money, but there are professional-level gas grills that cost over $20,000. True, those are luxury products for the rich and famous, but $4000 for a high-end gas grill isn’t really a lot of money.
What to Look For
- A Brand You Can Trust – There has been a flood of generic or no-name brand grills in recent years. These are made for stores, both physical and online, by factories that will put together an impressive package for a great price. But there is seldom anything to back these products up. Warranties disappear, parts may not be available, and support doesn’t exist. I have only listed products from brands that are here to make sure your grill works and is supported.
- All Stainless Steel vs Features – Stainless steel is expensive. To get a good, all stainless steel gas grill in this price range you will need to sacrifice versatility and features (knobs on the control panel). The full feature grills on this list have cast aluminum and enameled steel parts to keep costs down. This is the choice you have to make.
- Good Construction – Many of these grills are not widely available. You won’t find them in big box stores so you need to go to specialty retailers like patio and higher-end furniture stores. But if you can get your hands on one, examine it carefully. Are the doors solidly mounted? Does the cart seem solid? Are the burners heavy?
1. Napoleon Prestige Pro 665
Like the Weber Summit below, this top-of-the-line product from Napoleon is loaded with knobs. There are eight burners (one of the knobs is a wood chip drawer from adding smoke flavor). The five primary burners produce up to 60,000 BTUs under 665 square inches of heavy stainless steel cooking grates. There is also an infrared rear-mounted rotisserie burner and standard and infrared side burners. The construction (done in Canada) is primarily stainless steel, but like the Weber Summit below, it has cast aluminum and powder-coated steel parts. This is a complete grill in a single package and comes with almost everything you will need except the food.
2. Weber Summit S-670
This is the pinnacle of the Weber line. It has six main burners that can generate nearly 100 BTUs per square inch and there are 624 of those. There is a full rotisserie system with a pop-up rotisserie motor and rear-mounted rotisserie burner. There is a dedicated smoker box burner and an internal sear burner. And there is also a 12,000 BTU side burner. Altogether there are nine burners on this gas grill. It is largely made of stainless steel and has two, handle mounted LED lights and a fuel gauge (for those using this monster on propane). For those that want a Weber, but want all the Weber money can buy, this model typically sells for around $3,500USD.
3. American Outdoor Grill T-Series 30
American Outdoor Grill is the low-cost brand from Fire Magic, the biggest maker of outdoor kitchen equipment. This, all stainless steel grill has three main burners, a side burner, and a rear-mounted infrared rotisserie burner. It’s all the features in a stainless steel package for under $4,000USD. What makes this a great grill for the price is all that Fire Magic engineering. True, this is a lighter, simpler version, but at a fraction of the price. American Outdoor Grill is also a great choice for an outdoor kitchen on a budget.
4. Artisan American Eagle 36
Made entirely in the USA of 304 stainless steel, this is a well-crafted but basic gas grill. You get three burners and little else for a price tag of just under $4,000USD. Artisan is the more affordable product from Alfresco, one of the largest makers of high-end outdoor kitchens. Three U-type burners fit under a panel of ceramic briquets. This creates high, even heat. The trade-off is all the extras. The Napoleon or Weber grills above offer it all. The Artisan American Eagle is a simple grill. It is, however, professional quality and 100% stainless steel.
5. Broil King Regal S 590 IR
Broil King is one of the oldest companies in outdoor cooking. This Canadian-made gas grill offers it all. In many ways, it is comparable to the Weber and Napoleon grills above. But it is much more affordable. Of course, that comes at a price in construction quality. This model comes in just above our $2,000USD price line. What you get are four main burners, an infrared side burner (like the one on the napoleon), and a rear-mounted rotisserie burner (not infrared). This is a fully loaded gas grill and with it, there is very little you won’t be able to cook. Also, don’t think I don’t like this grill. I love it. But in this price range, it isn’t my first pick.
6. Saber Premium 500 3-Burner Infrared
Constructed entirely (down to the bolts) or 304 stainless steel and boasting an amazing 18,000 BTU dual control side burner, the Saber Grill is truly an innovative product. The all infrared power is accomplished by focusing the power of three 8,000 BTU burners at a metal diffuser and inverted U-shape cooking grates. The fire is completely isolated from the food and the heat that cooks is what radiates from the metal. This gas grill is virtually incapable of flare-ups and is practically foolproof. Oh, it also comes standard with a very good rotisserie kit and a thick and durable cover. The downside of this technology is that it produces more smoke than other gas grills, and not necessarily the kind of smoke that will flavor your food. It isn’t distasteful, but not a benefit. However, I love the side burner on this grill. It’s one of the best in the business.
All the gas grills on this list are available freestanding (cart mounted) or as built-in for outdoor kitchens. They are also available in propane (LP) or natural gas (NG). It is important to know that for many models it is not possible to change the fuel type, so make certain that you buy the grill configuration you need.
- Do Your Research! – I know. You have read (or skimmed) almost all of this article. That’s research. Based on my years of experience, I can tell you which grills I think are best. I can not tell you which grill is right for you. I try to provide a variety of top-quality gas grills, but I fully understand that one size doesn’t fit all.
- Care For Your Investment – Start with a good cover, but keeping your grill clean and in good working order can dramatically increase the time you get to use this grill. It is an investment and one that you should be able to use for years to come without problems.
