National Barbecue Day 2023: Deals on charcoal, gas grills from Lowe’s, Amazon, more

Nov 04, 2023

These are some of the top deals on grills for National Barbecue Day, including this Traeger wood pellet model.

National Barbecue Day is celebrated on Tuesday, May 16, and is a great day to find the best deals on gas and charcoal grills.

What's the difference? Well, Charcoal grills infuse a ton of flavor into food while getting hotter than gas. These grills are typically smaller but are messier to clean up. Gas grills offer more even and controllable heating without the smoke of a charcoal grill. However, deciding on a grill can be daunting based on the number of options available.

To narrow down your decision, these are the most popular gas or charcoal grills on the market, including models from Weber and Char-Broil. Take a look at the list below and start eating delicious foods this season.
