Every year, on July 4th, Americans everywhere celebrate their independence with fireworks, baseball and, of course, good barbecue. Planning a get-together with your fellow countrymen? Here are the grills you need to knock it out of the park.
The Best Charcoal Grills
For cooks who prefer an analog experience, one that allows total control over how the meat is cooked, charcoal grills are the only answer. These are the three for every budget and level of experience.
The Best Gas Grills
Gas grills win on convenience. Sure, they’re also pricey. But well-designed hardware is a breeze to maintain, promising grade-A barbecue for many years to come.
The Best Smokers
Any outdoor cook worth their chops owns a dedicated smoker, or, at the very least, a grill that can perform double duty. These are the best smokers for any cooking style (or backyard size), best paired with summer lagers, games of cornhole and family dinners.
