Outdoor grilling, once just a seasonal pastime, has become a year-round activity for those who love the taste of food cooked over an open fire. And whether you’re cooking for a large group or just throwing something on the grill for yourself, outdoor grills now come in an array of styles, sizes and fuel types to meet the demands of every outdoor chef.

If you’re considering a new grill, we’d like to help you choose the right one for your outdoor cooking needs. This short video will show you the features and benefits of some of the latest in portable electric, gas and charcoal grills.

Portable outdoor grills are perfect for small outdoor spaces at home or for grilling a few burgers and hot dogs at a tailgate or picnic. You’ll also see the wide selection of full-sized propane and natural gas outdoor grills. Many of them are equipped with side burners, rotisseries and other innovative grill accessories that make cooking and enjoying meals outdoors more enjoyable. You can even explore ideas for building your own customized outdoor kitchen.

After reviewing your options — see all of them in our Grills Department — you’ll be ready to fire up the grill and prepare a delicious meal anytime, anywhere.
