Weber Portable Grill

As the days get longer and brighter, there's something about sunny days and clear skies that makes us want to grill outdoors. That big backyard grill can't make it to the beach, campsite or parking lot tailgate though, which is where a portable grill comes in handy. 

The best time to buy a portable grill is right now while summer is starting to heat up. Whether you're hosting a Fourth of July party at home or picnicking in a park, you can fire up a delicious feast from anywhere with a portable grill. Even if you just have an apartment balcony to work with, portable grills take up minimal space and can often be compactly stowed away after use. 

From gas grills to charcoal grills and a wood-burning grill, top brands like Cuisinart, Solo Stove, Weber and more have great portable grills that don't take up too much space in your car and enable you to get your grill on anywhere. After you pick your fuel source of choice, you'll also want to consider the grill's surface area and durability to be easily packable and withstand the weather.

Ahead, find the best portable grills that'll have you grilling like a pro on the go — starting at just $27.
