top 5 outdoor grills for the holidays

If you still haven't found the perfect gift for that special someone, don't panic. There is still time to order the gift that keeps on giving - an outdoor grill. Outdoor grills make perfect gifts for the members of your family who can't get enough of the outdoors and good food. Plus, as the giver of one of our top 5 outdoor grills, you get to enjoy home grilled goodness year round.

1. American Outdoor Grill 30 PCL

Perfect for the backyard, patio, or deck, this portable gas grill manufactured by American Outdoor Grill is part of their new "L" series. It features an electronic ignition system, warming rack, and 4-prong adjustable rotisserie meat holder. Constructed with high-quality stainless steel, this grill lasts for years of use. The user-friendly drip collector helps prevent spills and stains, and the grill even comes with halogen lights to make late night grilling easy and safe.

The polished bezel thermometer is attractive and accurate, and the valves are made of solid brass. This ensures accurate temperate readings and precise control to prolong the life of your grill.

2. Primo Oval LG 300 Ceramic Grill

The gourmet chef in your life could not ask for more than a Primo Ceramic grill this holiday season. Ceramic does not radiate heat like metal grills. Food grilled in a ceramic grill retains its natural juices, and the ceramic exterior stays cooler than hot metal, preventing injury.

Ceramic grills do more than just grill the best tasting steaks around - they also act as ovens and smokers, allowing you to grill, bake, roast, and smoke for all of your outdoor cooking needs.

This grill has enough space to grill 15-25 steaks on its multiple racks. 300 square inches of cooking space means there is plenty of room for all of your favorites from hot dogs to shishkabobs.

If your special someone craves a charcoal grill that provides a superior taste, then this Primo product is the grill of choice.

3. Big Green Egg

It is hard to know what to expect from a company with a name like Big Green Egg, but those familiar with grills know the name is synonymous with quality. 

These ceramic grills come in a variety of sizes. All have the same distinctive egg shape, perfected for quality and efficiency. Their XXLarge EGG easily handles family gatherings, catering events and cookouts with taste and style, boasting 672 square inches of cooking space. For an ultra-portable gift option, try the Mini Egg. With 79 square inches of cooking space, this little grill still cooks 2 pork chops or breasts at a time.

Let your loved ones decide if they prefer grilling, baking, or smoking on their new Big Green Egg grill - if nothing else, grilling accessories make excellent stocking stuffers.

4. Weber Original Kettle Series

Nothing says summer like a Weber Original Kettle grill. Available in 18, 22, and 26-inches, these charcoal fired grills are portable, light, and perfect for the backyard. The wheeled base makes moving the grill simple, and Weber grills last for years.

Lovers of the standard charcoal grill appreciate the simplicity of the Weber Original. The three sizes offer small and large families a portable charcoal grill perfect for their needs.

5. Weber Genesis Series

Weber makes both charcoal and gas grills. Serious grill aficionados prefer the Genesis series for their convenient size and superior construction. Each of the 4 grills in this series boasts 637 square inches of grilling space, and the grill comes with a solid welded frame on wheels for easy maneuvering. 

The Genesis E-310 and E-330 come equipped with porcelain-enameled Flavorizer bars, and both the Genesis S-310 and S-330 have stainless steel Flavorizer bars. All 4 grills offer 3 stainless steel burners, and the E-330 and S-330 come with a Sear Station burner.

This season can still be a time to utilize your quickest and most versatile cooking device. On milder days, take your ingredients outside to enjoy the flavors only gas grills can bring. Here are some tips to make fall and winter grilling easier and safer, plus recipes to inspire your cold-weather fare. 

Tips for cold weather grilling:

  • If you have a safe spot, consider moving your gas grill closer to your back entry for convenience.
  • When the temps are colder, give your grill extra time to heat up. If it normally takes 10 minutes in summer, plan to heat up the grill 20 minutes before cooking.
  • Avoid opening the grill as often as you might in summer. This can bring the temperature of the grill interior down enough to affect cooking efficiency. A remote thermometer can be really useful to monitor your food in the comfort of your home.
  • Remember to wear warm clothing when heading out to the grill. Dress in layers to make it easier for coming and going. For your safety, avoid loose clothing like scarves.

Salad course:

  • Grilled Romaine Salad- This is as simple as placing half a head of lettuce or two directly on the grill. It's delicious with or without salad dressing.

Main courses:

Desserts:

  • Baked apples- This warm treat combining apples, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon is sweet and satisfying. Apples are grilled on aluminum foil, making clean up a snap. 
  • Grilled Gingerbread S'mores- The flavors of the season enhance the taste of traditional S'mores. Simply prepare them in a cast-iron skillet. 

Gas grills are a practical and efficient way to create warm meals now and into winter. Most meals prepared on the grill provide easy clean up, too. The flavors and aromas of the barbecue in summer will be even more welcomed and comforting in the dead of winter. Now, your gas grill can give you year-round enjoyment. 

We have a wide selection of gas grills to choose from, and we conveniently provide set up and delivery. Please contact us for further information.
