Top 24 Best Outdoor Gas Barbecues – fast, clean, big and impressive

Love to barbecue but could not be asked to start a fire, get smoked and wait for the charcoal to turn white, then Gas BBQ is your answer.

These outdoor barbecues are not only quick and clean (smokeless) but big and solid with all the extras you will need to start cooking almost instantly.

We have to admit that gas burner barbecue may not be for everyone with some preferring the real smoke, coal fire and ash but if you are hosting a party, a gas BBQ makes a lot of sense.

Having to start a second fire with the conventional coal fired barbecue to continue cooking is the last thing you want to do when hosting a group of hungry adults and children.

The Many Benefits of a Gas Barbecue

No we are not here to pitch one over the other, Gas vs Charcoal BBQs, but to list the benefits of a gas barbecue (sometimes compared to a charcoal BBQ):


  • More substantial BBQ box from metal in stainless steel or painted enamel finish on either a metal stand or wooden frame with storage cabinet and shelves.
  • Instant light-up with push button ignition, no waiting around and start cooking in seconds
  • Less smoke, at least not from the coal, smoke from overcooked food is unavoidable
  • Constant and consistent heat unlike charcoal often unpredictable and uneven heat transfer
  • Longer cooking time, does not gradually lose heat like charcoal unless you ran out of gas but typical propane tank will burn for hours
  • Able to control the heat level by adjusting the knob
  • As it is more predictable, you can pay less attention to the cooking and more entertaining
  • Set it on low heat for slow cooking or turn up the heat to give your meat a good grill
  • Multiple heat zones depending on the number of burners
  • Bigger and sturdier construction, typical Gas Barbecues are designed as a wagon
  • Built in gas gauge and thermometer on the hood on some models
  • Easier to clean and empty with removable drip pan and grill, no ashes and dust to clean out
  • Side burner on some model for heating up food on a frying pan or sauce pan for sauces
  • Fixed or fold away side tables for preparation and serving space
  • Bigger gas barbecues come with rotisserie attachments and forks for roasting whole chicken, leg or other meat
  • Hood or lid shut for smoking or roasting with wood smoking for added flavour using a smoker box (available separately)
  • Impressive with higher models finished in colour and stainless steel complete with accessories and cover.
