Top Grills and Smokers for Cooking Outdoors this Summer

A grill or smoker from AES Hearth & Patio could be a great addition to your outdoor patio and entertaining space this summer. Grilling and smoking are two of the best choices for cooking outdoors, as they provide delicious flavor and texture to your food. Grilling adds a smoky, charred flavor that can’t be replicated indoors, while smoking provides a unique infusion that can only be achieved with low-and-slow cooking.

Grills and smokers are versatile culinary tools—you can use them for literally any course from appetizers to dessert:

  • Burgers
  • Steaks
  • Vegetables
  • Fish
  • Fruit
  • Baked Goods

If you have a large family or like to entertain guests, grills and smokers offer plenty of space for cooking large quantities of food all at once. Undecided about which one to purchase? Keep reading for a more detailed review of our top brands.

Our Top Three Grills and Smokers

There’s no denying that there are a plethora of options on the market when it comes to outdoor cooking. However, not all grills are the same. When it comes down to it, certain grills truly stand out from the competition. Here are our top three picks this summer!

1. Modern Tech with The Napoleon

Made with durable stainless steel, the Napoleon Grill uses infrared heat to cook your food. It is designed with a large grilling surface and multiple burners, allowing for efficient and even cooking. This impressive gas grill is known for its ability to quickly reach high temperatures, making it ideal for searing steaks and other meats. It’s an excellent choice for grilling that is sure to last you for many years to come.

2. Versatility with The Louisiana

The Louisiana Grill is an especially unique type of outdoor cooking device that combines the features of a smoker, grill, and oven. This grill is designed to cook food using indirect heat and smoke, which gives it the flavor and texture of traditional Southern barbecue. The Louisiana Grill is made from heavy-duty steel and has adjustable temperature settings for extra control over the cooking process. Its precision grilling and wide range of features make it a purchase you can feel confident in.

3. Iconic Performance with The Green Egg

Launched in the 1970s, The Green Egg has remained an iconic brand, with a loyal fanbase who even refer to themselves as Eggheads! A Kamado-style grill, its design remains decidedly different from other gas and charcoal options. Once the hardwood lump charcoal is burning in the grill, the design of its cast-ceramic walls (an inch thick) and its heavy lid work together to trap heat, enabling you to adjust the temperature precisely using the dampers. The Green Egg offers quick and simple grilling control, for both beginner and master chefs.
