best grill gazebos

Staff

Buying a grill gazebo is like installing a mini kitchen into your outdoor space to barbecue year-round, sheltered from snow, rain, or the blazing hot summer sun. Making the investment means having everything from cooking utensils to a condiment rack to serving shelves within an arm’s reach — and for as little as roughly $125. Whether you’re in the market for a grill gazebo with a bright canopy to match your cantilever umbrella on your patio or a large hardtop that adds space on your deck to safely socialize under cover, here are some of best grill gazebos to snag right now while they’re still in stock.

What to Consider

The majority of grill gazebos are roughly 8 feet wide by 5 feet deep, so first decide whether those dimensions suit your space. There are some that are larger, but it isn’t as easy to find one with a smaller footprint (although we did). Grill gazebos come with either a canopy top, usually made from polyester or Sunbrella fabric, or a hardtop, often constructed from steel or a combination of steel and polycarbonate. Both are typically weather- and rust-resistant and treated for UV protection. Extra features to look for include serving shelves on either side of the grill, hooks for hanging barbecue utensils, and a LED lights for nighttime cookouts.

How We Chose

Our selection offers a range of hardtop and canopy-top grill gazebos across price points — from budget to splurge — all with customer ratings of at least four stars. We looked at quality of building materials, sturdiness, and overall design, and included a variety of styles and sizes within the two broad categories, such as single- and double-tier canopies, and options that are best for small and large spaces. We also took special features into account and weighed nice-to-have extras against cost to determine whether a particular model offered good value.
