An illustration highlighting that you'll find grills on sale this holiday weekend

If you’re in the market for a new grill this summer, July Fourth is the perfect time to shop: Retailers typically offer bigger discounts mid-season, and there’s still a good selection to choose from. We’ve combed through sales listings at some of the biggest retailers to zero in on deals on great grills from our tests.

This year the shopping process may be different, with safety precautions due to the pandemic. But you’ll find plenty of grills at Lowe's and Home Depot, as well as discount retailers such as Walmart. You can find grills at hardware stores, too. If you decide to shop in person, consider wearing a mask, and employ basic infection-control practices, to lessen your risk of exposure to the coronavirus. 

Most large retailers also have robust offerings on their websites and typically offer free shipping on models over a certain price, usually $400. You’ll have to assemble the grill yourself, though. If you want a grill assembled, it’ll probably cost extra, and you'll need to pick it up from the store.

Check out our grill buying guide to research the type of grill you want and key features to look for. CR members can also jump to our grill ratings. We’ll keep updating the list below as new deals come in.

      This Char-Broil is the model to beat if you want solid, no-frills performance at a great price. Even without the $30 discount, this grill is a great deal. It’s all-stainless construction gives it a polished look, and it has a side burner, too, both of which are rare finds in this price range.

        This Dyna-Glo is a strong performer, making it a great option for an entry-level grill. It has two main burners and a side burner for warming, say, barbecue sauce or sides like baked beans. At $50 off its regular price, we think it's the perfect model to help you get started grilling.

        Monument Grills Gas Grill

          Even without the sale, this grill offers a lot of bang for your buck, including features like integrated LED lighting, an infrared searing burner, and a side burner. It performs admirably in our tests, and for $50 or more off the regular price, we think it's a stellar deal.

          Napoleon Gas Grill

            Napoleon has a reputation for building beautiful, quality grills. But the prices might make them less attractive to all but the most devoted grillers. This year, however, they’ve knocked $100 off the price of this gorgeous, Lowe’s-exclusive model. It has four burners, two side shelves, and a cabinet with doors for concealing your propane tank. As a brand, CR’s member survey shows that Napoleon lives up to its reputation, with stellar marks for both predicted reliability and owner satisfaction.

            Royal Gourmet Gas Grill

              Even at its everyday price of around $600, this Royal Gourmet is a pretty good deal. But it’s currently more than $100 below list price, which makes it irresistible. It’s feature packed, with five burners, a side burner, a built-in thermometer, and even an infrared rotisserie. Performance is solid in our tests, though it’s worth noting that we don’t currently have reliability or satisfaction data for Royal Gourmet grills.

              Weber Gas Grill

                It’s rare to find Weber grills on sale, in large part because of the brand’s sterling reputation. But the Spirit E-210, its entry-level small offering, can be had for $20 off the regular price. It has a 10-year warranty on the burners, electronic ignition, and two side shelves, though it lacks a side burner.

                Weber Gas Grill

                  The Genesis is Weber’s flagship line of midsized grills. They’re routinely stellar performers in our tests, and the E-315, one of the newest models in its lineup, is equally impressive. But it also has a few more features than other premium grills at this price. In addition to an electronic ignition, locking casters, and a side burner, it has a built-in fuel gauge and an extra-tall lid (for cooking tall foods like beer can chicken, for example). It’s compatible with iGrill, Weber’s line of Bluetooth thermometers that plug directly into your grill (and food), letting you use a compatible smartphone app to monitor temperatures. For the holiday, it’s about $50 off the regular price.

                  Kamado & Charcoal Grills

                  Broil King Kamado Grill

                    Kamado grills aren't for the novice griller. But if you're ready to step up your game, this model, typically $900, is $140 off at Amazon. CR's testers found it very easy to use and clean but noted that the built-in temperature gauge stopped working during testing.

                    Char-Griller Kamado Grill

                      If you’ve been longing for a kamado grill but don’t want to spend big on a heavy, ceramic model, the Char-Griller is a great choice. It’s regular price is inexpensive, and now you can get it for $20 less—not a huge savings, but at least enough to buy a few bags of charcoal and wood chips to go with it. Performance is admirable in our tests, and this model has two side shelves, tool hooks, a built-in thermometer, and an easy-to-dump ash pan for charcoal residue.

                      Landmann Charcoal Grill

                        This charcoal grill usually sells for over $300, but Wayfair is offering a discount of more than 50 percent right now. It scores well when it comes to cooking food evenly and indirectly, and it's convenient to use and easy to clean.

                        Visions Kamado Grill

                          Kamado grills are amazing for cooking at low and high temperature extremes—think searing a steak or pizza, or slow-smoking ribs or brisket. The Vision Grills Professional is a great all-around performer within the category and includes tons of features, including two side shelves, a slot for an electronic coal igniter, and multiple dampers and split racks. It’s really rare to see ceramic kamado grills go on sale—this is the only time we’ve ever seen a discount on this Vision Kamado. The only catch? To realize the $77 savings, you’ll need to buy the grill in taupe, orange, or red—the signature black finish is selling for the full price of $699.
