You can find some terrific gas grills at your local hardware store and a dizzying array of options at home centers like Home Depot and Lowe’s. Then there’s Walmart and other discount stores, which ring up about a quarter of all grill sales.

Walmart has a broad offering of gas grill models in stores and online, with dozens of options that include free delivery.

More on Grills

“Walmart stores usually offer gas grills that are around $100 to $400, from brands such as Cuisinart and Expert Grill,” says Mark Allwood, a senior market analyst at Consumer Reports. “Online, you have a lot more to choose from, including Weber, with prices all the way up to $2,000.”

Consumer Reports tests new gas grills each year, in every size and price range. We currently have more than 160 models in our gas grill ratings, and our test engineers are busy assessing even more in our labs.

Not every gas grill Consumer Reports tests is a winner, so use this CR guide to find a worthy barbecue companion at Walmart. If you plan to buy your next grill at one of the big-box stores, we’ve got you covered there, too. Check out our expert picks for the best gas grills at Home Depot and the best gas grills at Lowe’s.

Attention, Walmart Shoppers

Consumer Reports’ secret shoppers offer these tips for a better shopping experience at Walmart.

In-Store Shopping
• Check inventory online before you head to the store. The grill you want might be in a store near you. If not, Walmart will ship it to a store where you can pick it up, and you won’t have to pay a shipping fee.

• Check the grill’s dimensions. You can do this on Walmart’s site or on the grill’s summary page in our gas grill ratings.

• Check your cargo space. Walmart offers free assembly but doesn’t deliver assembled grills to residences. You’ll need an SUV or a pickup to haul an assembled grill home. Walmart doesn’t rent trucks.

Online Shopping
• Check to see if a grill has free two-day shipping.
You’ll see this called out on Walmart’s website.

Check the box before you start assembling the grill. Make sure all the parts are included and not broken or damaged. If something is missing, call Walmart’s customer service (800-925-6278). If the wait for a replacement part is too long, call the manufacturer directly to see whether it can be shipped sooner.

Some of the models below are exclusive to Walmart. But don’t assume that Walmart will always offer the best deal on other options. It’s possible that competing retailers might stock the same model at a lower price.

As a classically trained chef and an enthusiastic DIYer, I've always valued having the best tool for a job—whether the task at hand is dicing onions for mirepoix or hanging drywall. When I'm not writing about home products, I can be found putting them to the test, often with help from my two young children, in the 1860s townhouse I'm restoring in my free time.
