If you don't have a grill yet or want to upgrade the one you do have, Memorial Day is a great time to go shopping for one. The weekend is full of sales, which usually focus on all the summer essentials like grills, patio furniture, and melamine dinnerware (check out more on these sales!).
Here are five great deals on grills that we're currently eyeing.
1. Stok Gridiron 1-Burner Portable Propane Gas Grill, $159 at Home Depot
There are portable grills that you could technically kinda pull around if you needed to, and then there are portable grills that are actually easy to move. The Stok Portable Propane Gas Grill is one of the latter options. A locking system, heavy-duty wheels, and a handle make it a breeze to cart it from place to place. And, of course, it'll do a decent job cooking up burgers and dogs once you get where you're going.
2. Visions Grill Kamado Ceramic Grill, $599 at Home Depot
An alternative to the cult-favorite Green Egg, this ceramic grill is great for serious backyard grill masters. You can use it to smoke meats, make pizzas, bake bread, and more. This version includes an electric starter port (for super-easy lighting), has a removable ash drawer (for super-easy cleaning), and has 604 square inches of cooking surface (for feeding lots of hungry people).
3. Weber Smokey Joe Portable Grill, $30
Just because you're really short on space doesn't mean you have to skimp on quality. Weber is the go-to for the basic kettle grill, and it comes in this mini version, which is as functional as it is cute. A number-one Amazon best-seller, the 14-inch mini has all the features of its bigger sibling: rust-resistant coating, a triple-plated grilling grate, and nylon-coated handle. Be the king or queen of your balcony — no backyard required.
4. Terracotta Pizza Oven, $112 at World Market
If you'd rather skip the meat and stick with pizza, this might be the fish for you. It makes personal-sized, wood-fired pizza — and it can also spit out toasted marshmallows for s'mores.
5. Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler, $75
If you simply just can't convince your super to let you have an outdoor grill, this five-in-one griddle from Cuisinart is a great alternative. And it happens to be nearly 60 percent off. You can even open it up completely for a more traditional grilling experience, or convert it to a griddle for pancakes on Saturday morning.
