The grill features porcelain grill grates, a meat probe and a spacious hopper with an extra grill rack. It comes with a three-year warranty from the date of original purchase. Reviewers are generally pleased with the grill’s performance, though a few reported trouble connecting the smartphone app. 

Double Play Char-Griller

2. Double Play 3-Burner Gas and Charcoal Grill by Char-Griller

Price: $348  

Home Depot reviews rating: 4.4

Total number of reviews: 1,282
