Once the bastion of summer cooking, gas grills are now a staple for year-round cooking throughout the U.S. People are preparing everything from Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas hams to nightly gourmet meals. To help individuals choose the gas grill that best fits their needs, DotCom Magazine has announced its choice of Top 5 grills.
