Best Gas Grills Under $200 Reviews
Aesthetics will not be the only thing that will charm you in this grill, in fact, it is packed with some exciting features for you to try out. A large cooking area with side burners worth of 12,000 BTUs is what the grill packs in addition to the 3 gas burners for grilling.
Durable construction – A durable construction is what you need when it comes to an outdoor gas grill. This is what you are promised with the Char-Griller E3001. The construction is done mainly in steel, which makes it durable and withstand harsh weather conditions. So given the heavyweight of the grill, you can enjoy outdoor BBQ with the grill, without having to go through the trouble of moving it in and out.
Large grill space – Large grill space is essential when it comes to throwing BBQ parties. If you are someone who loves to sit with friends and family and enjoy a good BBQ, then this grill will serve you great. It comes with 498 square inches of primary cooking area, which can serve easily a group of 4 or 5. So throw a BBQ party in your backyard and enjoy an amazing feast with friends and family.
Hybrid Grill – Cooking and grilling all in one, this feature is something that you will get to enjoy with Char-Griller. The side burners that come with the grill are around 12,000 BTUs. This enough for you to try out some cooking experiments along with the grilling. You can mix up a sauce, or stir fry some veggies to go with the BBQ.
The Char-griller model is a good catch in the given price, however, assembling the grill is something that we did not like. The grill not only took a lot of time to assemble, but it was hard to configure it too. If you do not find this a problem, then go ahead with this grill by all means and enjoy a good time BBQ in a low budget.
Portable design – The is, by far the best portable gas grill under $200 on our list. The design of the grill is unique and compact, with a cook box to house all your grilling tools and grill components. Every inch of the grill is done in high-grade aluminum and fiberglass to ensure maximum durability and protection against rust. Additionally, you can choose between different color schemes to fit in your backyard or terrace.
Porcelain-enameled cooking grates – If you are a fan of the sear pattern that appears to the steaks and hamburgers your grill then you will love how the grates in this grill perform. Enameled in porcelain not only do these grates ensure maximum heat retention and even distribution but also tend to leave the beautiful sear patterns once you grill your steaks and burgers. Cleaning these grates is also a breeze.
Stainless steel burner tubes – Strong, rust-resistant burner tubes in the grill easily withstand the moisture content of the propane gas the grill uses. The tubes are fitted with the burner valve which has several temperature settings. So you can choose the temperature to cook your meals and monitor them too at the same time with Weber as you BBQ partner.
Grease management system – Eating is splendid, but clean-up is not! However, this grill will ensure that your post BBQ clean-ups are easy and not troublesome. The grease management system of the grill effectively gets rid of the grease that drips from the meat into the grill. The catch pan in the system collects the grease and prevents it from catching fire.
We did not come across any major flaws when working with this grill. The grilling experience was amazing and the clean-up was a breeze. However, given the grilling capacity, the grill cannot serve more than 3 people in a single go. So it’s best for small trips and little friends gathering.
3. MASTER COOK Classic – Propane Gas Grill for Outdoor under $200
Giving you 30,000 BTUs of some intense heat, the grill will easily feed a family of 5! It comes with a simple design that features two side extensions. These can be used to keep the grilling essentials when you happen to throw a BBQ feast. And despite the large size of the grill, it comes with a wheel which makes it easy to move around in the space.
Push-button ignition – This feature is useful if you are someone who cannot wait at all to get started with the BBQ. This push ignition function will get the grill fired up in the blink of an eye. This way you can warm up the grates and prepare the right heat for your meat to start grilling.
Swing away warming rack – If you happen to be in turmoil for lack of space, you can always use the swing-away warming rack in this grill. Having to grill or warm-up bread and burger buns may tend to take up grilling space, but this can be overcome by using the warming rack that comes in the MASTER COOK grill.
Foldable side shelves – The side shelves may seem not so useful at first glance and may seem to add asymmetry to the design. However, once you get to use the grill, you will realize the importance attached to these foldable shelves. They can be used to keep your grilling accessories and provide extra storage to keep other utensils. You will not have to run back and forth between the kitchen and the backyard in search of the utensils or sauces.
Thermometer – A thermometer mounted on the lid of the grill will help you gauge the temperature of the grill. This way you will be able to monitor the grilling and prevent the meat from getting burnt.
So do try out this gas grill and get to enjoy amazing features in such low price range. However, the grill does not come with a large warranty period; neither does the outer make of the grill that durable. So make sure you know these before you think to buy this BBQ monster.
4. Char-Broil Portable 240 – Gas Grill under $200
Piezo ignition – The grill comes fitted with the Piezo ignition system. You will not have to spend time to get the ignition started. A simple push of the button will get your work done in no time.
On the go grilling – The compact design and lightweight feature of the grill ensure that it can be placed in the car trunk and be a good companion to camping trips and such. You can carry the grill to a picnic spot too; it would not prove to be a hassle in doing so.
Temperature monitoring –A small temperature gauging meter on the lid will give you an idea of the temperature settings of the grill. You can monitor the temperature of your meat in this way and make sure you get to enjoy a juicy meal.
Portable design – The design is portable as stated earlier. You will find it as a convenient tabletop grill. Despite its small size, the build if the grill is pretty sturdy. This enhances the durability and the life of the gas grill.
The grill is a smart choice for a single person to fulfill their BBQ craving. Serving a group of people with this grill will not be possible, as the grilling area is not that much due to its compact design. So if you happen to be a traveler or an adventure enthusiast this grill is your best buddy.

You will not have to go through user manuals to get a hang of how to get the grill assembled. The task will not even take you 10 minutes and you will be ready to get grilling in no time.
Built-in ignition – The built-in ignition system in the small unit is pretty efficient. You will have the knob to control and start-up the ignition. So no more waiting or fumbling through the knobs to get the grilling started.
Porcelain-enameled grill – The heat retention of the unit is remarkable too. You will find that it heats up in no time and you can grill food at a good temperature as you like. The grates are not in cast iron, instead, steel is used in this grill.
Easy cleaning – Cleaning the grill is easy too. You will find a drip tray with the grill, which catches grease and keeps cleaning of the grill to a minimum.
Given the amazing features, there are some drawbacks attached to this grill too. Steel grates, in particular, tend to stick meat which can get pretty bothersome at times. Plus the grill has no way to monitor the temperature so that kind of dampens the whole BBQ feeling. So keep these factors in mind when you consider this contender for the tabletop grill.
This brings us to the end of our list of top-rated BBQ grills under $200. Now you will have an idea of the options available in the market under $200 range. So keeping this in view and your requirements you are in a position to make the proper decision on what to buy and what not to buy.
We would recommend the compact unique propane grill by Weber on the list. The grill comes in a flawless design and of course the grease management system. The grill will only serve at most 3 people but it is thus far our favorite entry on the list. So do try them out and let us know what you think!
