Gas grills have the benefit of instant, no-fuss ignition. Charcoal grills impart more flavor. Luckily, you don't have to choose between the two, thanks to the Weber Performer Grill ($350). With Touch-N-Go gas ignition system, the Performer starts up in no-time, and offers a 363 sq. in. cooking surface, a heavy-duty metal cart with built-in charcoal storage container, a lid-mounted thermometer, a plated steel hinged cooking grate to make adding extra briquettes easier, two Char-Basket charcoal fuel holders, and a large thermoset work table to keep your tools, spices, and other necessities within arm's reach.
