Summer is rapidly approaching, and with it, grilling season. Nobody wants to be stuck with a dinky little camping grill when there’s a backyard full of hungry people waiting for their burgers. So here are three of the best gas grills you can buy at Home Depot, according to experts at Consumer Reports.

What went into the ratings for the grills on Consumer Reports? These three criteria from Consumer Reports were: evenness of cooking, preheat performance, and the temperature range. We also added in the availability of having side-burner feature, as it’s always comes handy!

Happy grilling!

Best Small Grill: Huntington 630124 Gas Grill

This grill can fit up to 18 burgers comfortably, and it has serious firepower, (gas power?) despite its low price. People who have bought it say the grill is easy to use and heats evenly, which is a must when cooking for a crowd.

The grill itself is pretty bare bones: don’t expect any warranties or added bonuses. But if you want to get a gas grill and not spend a chunk of change, this is the one for you.

  • Side Burner: Yes
  • Infrared Burner: No
  • Exterior dimensions (HxWxD)44 x 50 x 21
  • Price: $129
  • Warranty: No

Best Medium Grill: Monument Grills 27592 Gas Grill

This grill is a mid-size version, and can fit about 18 to 28 burgers on the cooking surface. A Home Depot exclusive, this option has four main burners and two side infrared burners that pack a serious punch.

Consumers say the grill is easy to assemble and looks more expensive than it is. Plus, this $340 grill comes with a warranty—one year for the entire grill and eight years for the burners. But be warned: The company does not ship replacement parts.

  • Side Burner: Yes (2)
  • Infrared Burner: Yes (side – 2)
  • Price: $339
  • Exterior Dimensions (HxWxD): 46 x 554 x 22

Best Large Grill: Weber Genesis II E-330 Gas Grill

This is a large grill, which means it can fit 32 or more burgers—exactly what you want if your backyard is party central for your friends and family during the summer. This bad boy features three massive burners, coated cast iron grates and there’s even a model that runs on natural gas.

Buyers say the grill heats quickly and evenly, and while it is more of a project to put together, any reasonably capable person can do it. Plus, it looks pretty snazzy, too. But it comes with a heftier price tag at $799.

  • Side Burner: Yes
  • Infrared Burner: No
  • Price: $799
  • Exterior dimensions (HxWxD): 64.5 x 60 x 30
