We had a lot of fun testing these grills. We took them on campouts, cookouts and even had a few grill parties. In the end, we were determined to see how they compared side-by-side. We prepared a test piece of five batches of food, each containing the same items to test on each grill. Then we fired up each grill with our camera, temperature gauge, and notebook in hand to see and document how each one handled our designated test piece.

We also cooked on each contender while enduring very high winds to test wind resistance.

Minimum test piece
1 zucchini
1 yellow squash
1 sirloin & veggie kabob
1 chicken & veggie kabob
2 ground beef sliders
