Weber Q2200 Liquid Propane Grill

I'll start with a small bbq grill the main advantage of which is that it's portable. This grill is popular because it's great for different adventures such as picnics or outdoor trips.

I put it on this list because you can buy a portable grilling cart to go with it ( Weber 6557 Q Portable Cart ). That way it can work as a stationary grill for your backyard, while still having all the great features of a good grill.

Let's move on to the options and description of the construction. The grill is equipped with one burner made of stainless steel that heats up 280 square inches of grilling space.

An electronic ignition and a built-in thermometer are located in the center of the lid.

The grates are made of cast-iron and coated with a porcelain enamel. The entire body and the cover are made of aluminium ( the advantage here is that it doesn't rust ).

At the bottom we'll find a fat tray that we can remove easily and quickly.

The style of the entire gas grill is also very high level.

It is actually a great choice for the backyard, for an urban setting or for camping. It's small, handy and will easily fit in your car.

It is an incredibly efficient gas grill for a price below 300$. The quality is guaranteed and you can be sure that it will serve you for many years to come.

Not satisfied when it comes to size? Then you really need to check my next offer below.


Char-Broil Classic 4-Burner Gas Grill

For much below 300$ you will find a gem that this model is. A very big grilling space, by which I mean 480 square inches for main cooking. Plus 180 square inches for secondary cooking. Big side shelves for your accessories, one of which has a hidden side burner under the lid.

This grill has actually 4 burners. It allows to get a high temperature for the entire area in a short amount of time. The electronic ignition system allows to easily control temperature together with a termometer located on the lid. The lid and the burners are made of stainless steel.

The grate is covered with porcelain coating.

The set also includes a fat tray which is easy to remove.

It's very easy to assemble, doesn't take much time.

If you ask me, the Char-Broil brand makes some of the best grills in the price range of 100-300$.

PROS

  • 4 burners
  • Big grilling space
  • Hidden Side burner

CONS

  • Lack of shelf

It really gets a lot of positive marks. It fully deserves the name of the best in its category, considreing the efficiency, grilling area size and price.

A great choice for a bigger family. Big, solid, efficient, cheap, durable and beautiful. It will surely serve you for many years to come, and the money you saved can be spent on a cover, that will make your grill last even longer.


Char-Broil Performance 300

Another gas grill, this time much much cheaper than the maximum amount ( 300 bucks ) you're willing to spend. That's because it's a much smaller grill. It only has 300 square inches for main grilling, on a cast-iron grate coated with porcelain. Above is a reclining rack of 100 square inches in size.

A very visually pleasing lid is made of stainless steel. It means that it's very durable. In the center, there's a standard heat sensor.

There's an electronic ignition for firing up the grill fast. There are only two burners, but the grill is small and it allows to heat up the grilling space in a short amount of time.

There are two foldable metal shelves on the sides .

As you can see, a downside here is the lack of a side burner. Which is actually understandable because of the size of the grill.

Still, we have a very neat compartment here located below the burner control panel. That's the place where you can hide your propane tank and some of the accessories.

Another selling point are four wheels. Two of them can be locked, which guarantees good stability and mobility.

It is worth adding that you will also find a very good fat tray here. You can easily remove it in order to clean it or replace it. It is coated with porcelain, which makes cleaning easier.

PROS

  • Inexpensive
  • Lightweight

CONS

  • Lack of a side burner
  • Small grill

I have to admit that it's a small grill, but a very efficient one. People often look for a grill with 3-4 burners without later using its potential. A better solution is choosing something smaller. Less cleaning and much lower price that allows to choose a higher quality model.

I think that in this price range and size it's the number one that is worth your attention.


Char-Broil Signature TRU ​Infrared 2-Burner Cabinet

Another model from this brand, it's a little more expensive, but it has a different heating system.

What makes this model different from the other ones I have presented today? It's a TRU infrared grilling system. It allows to heat up the entre area evenly and prevents cold spots. That way you will heat up your grill evenly. It allows to prepare food faster and lowers the gas consumption.

The grill is equipped with a special grate that heats up evenly. Additionally, it separates food from the flames. That way it eliminates burns.

The size is small too, the main grilling area is 325 square inches. It's filled with cast-iron grates coated with porcelain. Above that there's a rack that is also coated with porcelain, with 120 square inches of secondary grilling space.

It has an electronic startup system - Surefire. A panel with two knobs allows to properly control temperature. Below is a compartment that allows to hide the tank and different accessories used for grilling.

This gas grill is mobile, it has four wheels. Two of them can be locked to make it stable.

PROS

  • Price-Quality Ratio
  • TRU infrared system

CONS

  • It's small
  • Expensive

This grill has the best price-quality ration for a two burner Char-Broil model. Thanks to the infrared system it reaches very high temperatures in a very short amount of time. You will make really good steaks with it.
