5: Cadac Stratos 3-Burner
This little grill may be small and light, but it’s got a lot of Power to it. Produced by the South African company, Cadac, the Stratos is priced only at $359.99. It has a very strong heat output for its size due to its cast iron cooking grates, cooking just as strong as grills twice its price. Its lightweight design makes it easy for transportation and storage, without sacrificing its power.
4: Dyna-Glo Smart Space Living 2-Burner
The smallest Grill we have on this list, the Smart Space is also the most affordable. At a meager $299, the smart space is the strongest competitor in its price range.
