Still undecided? Many other factors can contribute to your decision to go gas, charcoal or electric, including space limitations and climate.
- For apartment patios or small yards, shop Kohls.com for a variety of space-saving grills.
- For all-season grilling in colder climates, keep your grill protected with a durable waterproof cover. Gas grills are ideal for cold-weather cooking.
