Grilling is not so easy these days.

In summer there is no reason not to use the nice weather for a barbecue. When it comes to buying a grill, however, there are probably more options than you think.

While many people assume that barbecues are pretty simple, they’re actually pretty complicated. While the basic design of a grill can be based on the same concept (fire over a grate), the way the grill is constructed can greatly affect the grilling results.

Because there are so many different types of grills, Food and Wine has compiled a list of the best grills of each type. According to the website, the Big Green Egg Kamado Grill is the best overall grill. The design of this grill ensures that it heats up quickly and can be used for cooking burgers, pizza and smoked ribs.
