Good-Looking Charcoal Grills

Throw your grilling aspirations on one of these three capable grills at the next local barbecue

Should you need more than just a grill, check out Ikea’s modular outdoor kitchen system, Grillskär. It has a sleek black powder-coated steel base with a stainless-steel counter, and includes additional units that have a sink or a prep counter.

What’s more iconic than the Original Kettle Charcoal Grill from Weber? Designed in 1952 by George Stephen, a man obsessed with grilling the perfect steak, he took inspiration from a buoy, cutting it in half and adding three legs and a handle, to create the original round cooking bowl with a lid.

Bake, roast, smoke—the Big Green Egg does it all. The first was a simple clay cooker sold out of Atlanta in 1974 and has since been vastly improved thanks to ceramic technology originally developed by NASA for the space program. Now available in seven sizes, a large one can handle twelve burgers, a 20-pound turkey or seven racks of ribs. The party will come to you.
