Best Gas Grills under $250 for 2023

Gas Grills, like everything else in life, obey the rule of, ‘you get what you pay for’. This isn’t to say that you have to spend a lot to get a good grill, let alone a great one, but when shopping for a full-sized outdoor cooking appliance under $250USD, there is not a lot to choose from and those choices are going to be limited in power, cooking capabilities, and ease of use. When shopping for the least expensive Gas Grills avoid anything with more than three main burners, stainless steel panels, or lots of features. Keep it simple and it will serve you better and last longer. Having said that, most of these gas grills won’t take a lot of punishment and they won’t last for more than a few years (generally two).

I have broken this list into two parts, the cheapest and the somewhat improved. Consider the first three, the best value grills under $250, and the second set of three to be the best larger and better-featured Gas Grills in this price range. Properly cared for and kept from the elements these grills should be cooking burgers and hot dogs for a few summers. None of them have even heating or a great deal of versatility, but they are all large enough for most families and powerful enough to do the more basic grilling tasks.

Read the Full Review of the Huntington 2-Burner #24025

Featuring a cast aluminum body, this is a classic style grill that actually boasts a good deal of power for around $100USD. It is simple, it flares up, and the heat is uneven, but it is solidly built for the price and considerably better than the competition.

Widely available, this Char-Broil is one of history’s best-selling Gas Grills. The body is simple stamped steel that doesn’t hold in heat and will rust if scratched. The heat output is light, but it will be reliable out of the box. Typically available for around $100USD.

Char-Broil Performance 4-Burner

Char-Broil Performance 4-Burner Model# 463349917

Generally, I wouldn’t recommend a 4-Burner grill at this price, but this Char-Broil has a modern look, decent heat output, and a lot of space for a very reasonable price (around $200USD). It lacks in quality, but it does look good.
