In the neighborhood and your extended family, you’re known for your grill game. You’re the rib-master, the steak king or the burger boss.
When you’ve earned the title of being an exceptional griller, you’ve also earned a really big grill so you can step up you game and cook for your adoring fans.
3 burner and even 4 burner grills are great for rookies, but once you’ve moved on to the next level, the 6 burner grill becomes the new frontier.
For the casual holiday griller, the 6 burner is going to be overkill, but the extra space can be a really great bonus when you’re firing up the grill every weekend. The extra square inches and bonus burners give you a ton of versatility, allowing you to cook different meats or sides at different temperatures, no over or undercooking guesswork to deal with. You can even dedicate a burner just to searing!
If you are in the market for a great 6 burner, then you are in the market for the best of what’s available. There’s a big selection and it can be tough to discern the winners from the money-wasters. In this post, I’ll break down the best features of my three top picks for the 6 burner grill category.
So let’s dive into the best 6 burner gas grills on the market for fulfilling all those top grill chef dreams?
The Weber Summit 7470001 S-670 Natural-Gas Grill is a beauty. You can’t deny it’s good looks and really, who doesn’t want a killer piece of eye-candy shining on their patio?
You should also know the name Weber as being synonymous with quality and durability. The company is known for designing some of the best gas grills in the market across a range of price points.
With six stainless steel burners, including a side burner, sear station burner, smoker burner, and rear-mounted infrared rotisserie burner, you can cook almost anything you would ever want to eat all in one massive unit. It offers a total of 838 square inches and 60,600 BTUs for a powerful experience.
It also comes with Weber’s well-known flavorer bars for capturing the aromatic juices of the meat and two stainless steal workspaces.
The Summit’s body is primarily made up of stainless steel so it’s especially durable. This grill also boasts an individual ignition system for each separate burner, so you do not have to light the whole thing just to cook one or two small items. You can also adjust the temperature of each burner to suit whatever you’re grilling, whether it’s salmon or a New York strip.
You can either get the Summit as a propane gas grill model or hook it up to your home and run it on natural gas – it also ranks as one of our picks for the best natural gas grills.
While the Weber may empty out your wallet a little more thoroughly than some of the other grills on the market, its durability is a return on the investment.
Another top contender for the best 6 burner gas grill category is the Char Broil Performance. This monster of a grill offers an insane 650 square inches of cooking space with a bonus side burner. It also features porcelain-coated cast iron grates, and a small shelf above the main cooking area for keeping meat warm post-grilling.
The Performance is made out of durable stainless steel, so it gets full marks for quality and durability. It also offers an impressive 60,00 BTUs of raw power and has a dedicated searing burner and a lidded 10,000 BTU side burner.
Because this is a gas grill, it has an easy-to-start electronic ignition, so there is no fumbling around with a lighter and charcoal when you want to start cooking. It also ignites immediately on demand, which is just totally satisfying.
This monster has four wheels so moving it is a breeze when you need to. But if you have the space for it, it will more than likely be a permanent fixture.
The Performance has top marks on Amazon with a 4 out of 5 star user rating and almost 200 reviews.
Lastly, let’s take a look at slightly a smaller grill option if you do not have the space for the monster Weber Summit or Char Broil.
The Napoleon Prestige 500 Propane Grill gives you the same 6 individual burners that the other two grills provide but in a more compact frame. It offers 900 square inches of cooking area with a crazy 80,000 BTUs of raw power.
The Prestige also comes equipped with a “Sizzle Zone” side burner, which gives you the same kind of infrared heat that is used in a rotisserie section – another feature available on this grill. You will also enjoy a rotisserie turning stick to attach to the grill in order to cook a whole bird, or get serious with some other meat roasting.
The Prestige includes some condiment trays for storing all the condiments that you might want to use when saucing or basting your ribs or grilled chicken breasts. It also has some nice tool hangers on the side of the pop up steel side trays.
The Napoleon also offers the Prestige as a gas option with a propane tank or with a natural gas hook-up option for max versatility.
Summer is the season to get out and get on your grill. So if you are wondering if you should buy a 6 burner grill for your home, ask yourself this: Am I grilling at least once a week? Am I grilling for more than just a couple people? Do I want the best grilling experience possible?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then let our list guide you.
I am a grill freak! It's hard to pick my favorite thing to grill, but if I had to choose... it is still a tie between pork ribs and a juicy beef burger. I am currently grilling on a Weber S210(I live in a small space) but my dream grill is definitely a summit. Those things are bad ass. Anyways I would love to hear from you, leave a comment or question below!
