Types of Outdoor Grills

Explore options in gas or charcoal grills, smokers, pizza ovens, and more to find the best solutions for your outdoor cooking needs:

Charcoal Grills

Charcoal produces a higher temperature than gas and offers versatile grilling options with direct or indirect heat. Since charcoal grills lack components like valves and burners, they generally cost less than gas grills. And charcoal gives food that wonderful smoky-rich flavor. Our charcoal grills come in a variety of shapes, including kamado (egg-shaped) and kettle (spherical). Kamado grills are popular because they produce high heat for searing, roasting, and grilling, as well as low temperatures for smoking.

Gas Grills

Gas grills light quickly with the push of a button and the turn of a knob. They are easy to use, quick to heat up, and they're designed to maintain a consistent temperature across the entire grill surface. Gas grills are fueled by either propane stored in a tank or natural gas piped in via utility line. There is no difference in performance between a propane or natural gas grill, unless the temperature drops below zero, in which case natural gas burns better. Only a certified professional should install a line for a natural gas grill.

If you live in an apartment or condo where you can't use a large barbeque grill, explore our portable and tabletop grills, perfect for the patio, park, beach, or any outdoor location.

Grilling With Charcoal

Favored for the smoky, flame-broiled flavor they impart, charcoal grills are a favorite for backyard grill masters and weekend tailgaters alike. Grilling with charcoal requires a longer startup time than its gas counterpart, and demands a smidgen of patience and skill, as the briquettes must be manually lit and closely monitored to maintain the right cooking temperature. But avid grillers agree that the distinctive charcoal flavor is well worth the effort. Explore our collection to find the best charcoal grill for your needs: A folding charcoal grill makes an excellent option for those who live in a small apartment or have limited outdoor space, while small tabletop charcoal grills work well for tailgating, camping adventures, or beachside barbeques. Less portable and more expensive than its folding or tabletop counterparts, an egg-shaped ceramic grill offers exceptional heat circulation for quick and consistent cooking, and also pulls double duty as a smoker. Whether you’re looking for the perfect portable charcoal grill for your next tailgate party, or a ceramic charcoal grill for seasonal outdoor cooking, you’ll find it at Riverbend Home.
