We gathered the best propane, infrared and electric grills we could find and spent more than 200 man-hours testing them with dozens of pounds of burgers, steak, chicken and veggies, and while the best grill depends on what you prefer, we think most people would prefer the Weber Genesis II E-310 – a propane grill that makes grilling fast and easy.
But here’s where personal preferences matter: A propane tank is heavy and needs to be refilled, but is easier and costs less than cooking over coals. Infrared grills heat up faster than gas grills and allow you to cook meat using powerful sear burners. Cooking on an indoor electric grill is fast and healthy, and you don’t have to be a master chef to prepare tasty food. Below are our top picks for each category.
