Grills to Thrill

If all you want to do is cook food outdoors over an open flame, just about any cheap grill will do the job. But if you're serious about grilling and smoking meat — not to mention all the other things you can cook — a more substantial grill, either built-in or freestanding, could be worth a splurge. High-end gas and propane grills costing around $3,000 and up come with features that cheaper grills don't have: large cooking surfaces, powerful rotisseries, smoker boxes, built-in lighting, and more. We've rounded up a gaggle of grills for serious barbecue devotees, all of which get top marks from pros and owners alike.
