I think gas grills are probably one of my favorite types of grills and are really the most convenient types of grills that don’t sacrifice taste when picking different foods.
I thought I would take a look at some of the best gas grills under $300 to get a good idea of what’s out there and what kind of features are built-in and which ones are truly the top models in that particular price range. Want to see more gas grills like these ones?
Best 4 Burner Gas Grill Under $300
The first gas grill under 300 dollars that I want to talk about is the Char-Broil Classic 480 40000 BTU 4-Burner Gas Grill with Side Burner, which had over 250 reviews on Amazon and about 85% of those were 4 and 5 star reviews.
This classic gas grill features 4 burners with an additional side burner, like the title states and has some other features you might be interested in too.
You get 480 square inches of primary cooking space with 180 square inches of secondary cooking space for a grand total of 660 in.². This charbroil grill is a four burner unit that can pump out 40,000 BTU’s in the side burner is capable of pushing out an additional 10,000 BTU’s.
It even comes equipped with large side shelves to give you a lot of extra cooking and working space, which is really nice especially for prep work.
The Best Propane Gas Grill Under 300 Dollars:
This 3-Burner gas grill comes with all kinds of cool little features including an easy pushbutton electronic pulse ignition, a two-piece cast iron cooking grate and stainless steel burners that provide durability and performance time and time again.
The burners on this Dyna-Glo are capable of producing 36,000 BTUs of steady heat and are protected by steel heat tents, a pretty standard feature on most bbqs these days. A cool feature that comes standard with this BBQ is the side tables have the ability to fold when you do not need them and of course, fold out if you do happen to want to use them.
Some of the other features on this Dyna-Glo BBQ include some of the standard items you would typically find on most gas grills such as: a built-in thermometer, a rollaway cart and adjustable burner valves.
Best 2 Burner Gas Grill Under $300
The third gas grill to make the list is the Dyna-Glo Black & Stainless Premium Grill, which comes in a 2 burner, four burner or five burner model and can run off of liquid propane or natural gas. For this example though, I am going to be reviewing the two burner model that runs off of liquid propane.
This stainless steel premium Dyna-Glo model features two burners, like I mentioned earlier and is operated by liquid propane or natural gas, so you can go with a portable or fixed type of grilling station. It comes equipped with a double wall stainless steel lid and a cabinet assembly, typically found on most gas grills nowadays but thought it was worth mentioning and always a nice touch regardless.
It comes with locking and non-locking wheels making it convenient for use as a portable or fixed type unit. It is capable of pushing out 30,000 total BTUs and has approximately 547 square inches of cooking space that is divided up by a primary area (350 square inches) and a secondary area.
A Cool Alternative Look: A Fuego Grill
The next grill on the list (FUEGO FELG21C Element Gas Grill Carbon Steel) is quite unique and has a design that really stands out. It was designed in California by two gentlemen that had a very cool vision and now that vision has come to life.
This Fuego BBQ is very unique in the fact that it can heat itself up to 500°F in a matter of 5 minutes and has the ability to range in temperature from 250°F to 700°F by simply turning a knob. It is estimated that one tank of fuel will run this grill approximately 20 hours, which is pretty darn good compared to most other gas grills and is a true show of its efficiency.
It comes in around average having 346 in.² of primary cooking surface for you to use, which is roughly big enough to cook 16 (4 1/2 inch diameter) burgers on it at once. It measures approximately 36 inches in height by 23 inches in diameter and features a hinged door where you can store your propane tank, and easy to clean residue tray, wheels and an electronic ignition.
A Char-Broil Two Burner Model:
Making our way down the list, we come to the final gas grill under $300 and that is the Char-Broil Classic 300 30,000 BTU 2-Burner Gas Grill with Single Door, which had an overall rating on Amazon of 4 and a half stars from more than 60 customers and nearly 90% of the reviews were 4 or 5 stars!
This classic Char-Broil gas grill features two burners that are capable of spitting out 30,000 BTUs combined and has a single door, unlike other models that have two doors, meaning that there is only one door in the cabinet area which gives it a pretty unique, sharp look to it and really stands out.
It comes equipped with 300 square inches of cooking space plus another 120 square inches of secondary cooking space. Its durable steel lid and firebox are designed to withstand high temperatures and it’s compact design makes it great for areas that don’t have a whole lot of extra room.
