Home improvement chain Lowe’s is a popular destination for people in need of a new grill, thanks in large part to the impressive inventory. If you’re surfing through your options online, remember, the best grills generally come with durable parts (made of quality steel or cast-iron) and lengthy warranties. They’re also supported by positive customer reviews. 

MediaFeed combed through Lowe’s current offerings to pinpoint some of the products that fit this bill. Note: All prices are subject to change. Ratings and number of reviews associated with each grill are accurate as of the time of writing this article. Please read warranties in full to understand what exclusions may apply. Here are the best Lowe’s grills.

Price: $379

Lowe’s reviews rating: 4.7 stars

Total number of reviews: 8,533

If you’ve got less space or a slimmer budget, Weber’s Spirit II might be the grill for you. It features porcelain-enameled, cast-iron cooking grates, a porcelain-coated steel lid and two stainless steel burners operating at 26,500 BTUs per hour. It provides 360 square inches of primary cooking space, a 90-square-inch warming rack and two side tables (the left one folds down if you’re extra-pressed for space). 

Reviewers are in broad agreement that the grill offered appropriate bang for its buck, though a few reported nicks or dents upon delivery. Weber offers the same generous ten-year warranty on its Spirit grills that are offered on the aforementioned Genesis. 

Lowe’s charcoal grills  

Kamado Joe Grill

1. Classic Joe 18-in Red Kamado Charcoal Grill by Kamado Joe

Price: $749

Lowe’s reviews rating: 4.8 stars

Total number of reviews: 164 

Kamado grills are essentially large, insulated ceramic grills that enable a wide variety of cooking techniques, including smoking. (They take their name and their design from Japanese wood- or charcoal-fueled stoves.) This highly rated charcoal grill by Kamado Joe features a premium ceramic lid, stainless steel cooking grate, slide-out ash drawer and two folding side shelves. It offers 254 square inches of primary cooking space. 

Reviews are largely positive with purchasers attesting to the grill’s ability to execute multiple cooking techniques, including smoking, searing and baking. Kamado Joe offers a lifetime warranty on the grill’s ceramic parts and free shipping on all covered replacement parts.

Weber Summit Grill
Lowes.com

2. Summit Charcoal Grill Center by Weber

Price: $1,999

Lowe’s reviews rating: 4.8 stars

Total number of reviews:228

This recent addition to Lowe’s line-up is billed as “the evolution” of Weber’s iconic charcoal kettle grill. The Summit is large, offering 452 square inches of primary cooking space vs. the classic kettle’s standard 363 square inches. It’s also dual-walled and air insulated to allow “for all-day smoking at a consistent temperature.” In other words, it’s built with kamado grills in mind. 

The Summit is equipped with a gas ignition that enables lighting the grill with a push of the button and a one-touch cleaning system. This version also comes with a stainless steel table-top, wire basket and diffuser storage space — hence the “grill center” in its name.

Purchasers generally appreciated all the bells and whistles, though a few outliers questioned its smoking capabilities. Weber offers a 10-year warranty on the bowl, lid and center ring; a five-year warranty on the cleaning system and plastic components; and a two-year warranty on all remaining parts. Standard exclusions apply.

Weber’s popular portable propane gas grills are highly rated across retailers due to performance and ease of use. This version features a porcelain-coated, cast-iron cooking grate, an electronic ignition, a built-in thermometer and, perhaps most notably, a powerful stainless burner operating at 12,000 BTUs. It offers 280 square inches in cooking space and comes with two fold-out tables for added prep space and tool storage. 

Weber offers a five-year warranty on the cookbox, lid assembly, stainless steel burner tubes, grates and plastic components; it offers a two-year warranty on all remaining parts. Standards exclusions apply.

How to buy a grill at Lowe’s

Shoppers also have the option of purchasing an extended protection plan on many grills, usually for a three-year time period. The plan advertises no deductibles, coverage for normal wear and tear, coverage for power surges and 50% reimbursement of preventative maintenance items. The plan’s price varies by item. Read your prospective grill’s warranty to determine whether the coverage might be useful.

    I purchased a Dyna-Glo portable charcoal grill and offset smoker box but I have no idea on the type of table to place it on. I would like something with locking wheels. Any suggestion?

    Thanks,
