Brands to look out for if you want to buy barbecue grills
With the summer holidays drawing nearer, it’s time to dust off your outdoor bbq grills and plan your cookouts. But if you intend to buy a new one, summer’s certainly not the time to think about it. This is peak grilling season, and if the weather holds, prices aren’t going to fall any time soon.
The best time to purchase barbecue grills on sale is when summer’s over and stores are carrying huge unsold inventories. End of July and into August are the right times to snap up a deal on some of the best gas grills in the market.
Bargain hunters can look through the local papers for gas grills on sale, bbq grills for brick bbq on factory websites, people moving out, garage sales, local stores offloading older models and easy-purchase terms direct from manufacturers.
Some of the most popular, best-rated barbecue grills include:
Broil-Mate 165154: This may not rate very high in the looks department, but it’s a steal at $200 and gives you great performance. It’s compact and can be assembled at home. The company offers a lifetime warranty for the housing, with a 5-year guarantee on burners and steel components.
Napoleon Rogue 425: This is a luxury appliance that is large, spacious and powerful. This Canadian brand isn’t very well-known but it’s a winner.
