Even if you aren’t familiar with NewAge, the brand has been making some of the most impressive, high-end outdoor kitchen appliances and furnishings for a long time. The Platinum Kamado grill continues that heritage. In testing this grill, I found it did a fantastic job of maintaining a temperature, which helped me make some truly impressive pulled pork and other grilled foods. From the looks to the functionality, this Kamado grill is really a must-have for any true outdoor chef.


Charcoal barrel smokers are perfect for getting a good, even cook on your food and adding delicious smoky flavors. Even better, these cookers take up very little room, so they’re perfect for smaller patios. This Costway three-in-one smoker and grill has two grill racks, offering 400 square inches of cooking space. You can also set up the smoker to act as a regular grill or as a fire pit, so at $80, it’s hard to pass it up.


Cooking with real wood offers some delicious flavors but can be a hassle when you have to manually watch the temps, adjust the dampers, add wood and more. Masterbuilt’s cooker solves those issues and elevates outdoor cooking with some really useful features. The vertical smoker has a wood chip tray and can hold up to three chickens, two turkeys, three pork butts or three racks of ribs. And it has a removable water bowl to help keep your food moist. Simply prep your food, add some wood chips, plug it in and choose your temp for perfectly smoked foods.


Z Grills makes reliable cookers that offer an approachable way to cook your food with real wood-smoke flavor at a fantastic price (especially when on sale). This grill and smoker packs a lot of features into a relatively compact space. With 709 square inches of cooking space, you can get up to 30 burgers, six rib racks or five chickens inside and cook them all perfectly with the built-in meat probes. The included Wi-Fi technology lets you monitor your grill from anywhere to ensure everything cooks wonderfully.


Griddles are a fantastic option for outdoor cooking, and the LoCo Cookers three-burner griddle is on an amazing sale for July Fourth weekend. With 740 square inches of cooking space, you can feed everyone at the party, no problem. Aside from the flexibility that using a gas griddle offers, this model from LoCo comes with a dual-door cabinet for storage, two side tables and a built-in lid. At only $350, it’s basically a must-buy.

How we choose the best grill and smoker July 4th deals

Our team of expert shoppers and deal-hunters spent years helping buyers understand which major sales and deals are legitimately good and which are more routine. That includes Black Friday, Prime Day, July Fourth and countless other shopping events. We’ve gotten very good at weeding out scams and superficial deals, so you see only the best grills and smokers from retailers all over.

We look for real discounts, quality reviews and remaining sale time when choosing a deal to show you.

  • Real discounts mean exactly that. We look at the price history for all of the grills to make sure no manufacturers are inflating prices to make the discount seem more substantial than it is.
  • Quality reviews are important for any product, but especially for deeply discounted grills. If it breaks the first time you use it, the discount isn’t really worthwhile.
  • Remaining sale time is a huge part of our vetting process. If a grill deal seems like it will only be around for a short while or will only be available for the remaining stock, we’ll let you know upfront so you don’t come back to the deal later only to be disappointed.
