Summertime, and the grilling is easy. Well, if you have a stellar grill, that is. Whether you're looking to invest in a home grill for the first time, or you're ready to upgrade yours to a newer, better model, one thing is for sure: Now is the best time to buy a grill. 

When do Memorial Day grill sales start?

Right about… now! Memorial Day is Monday, May 30 this year. While some distributors offer short sales during Memorial Day weekend, many have already slashed prices on grills and smokers. Most Memorial Day grill sales end May 31 or June 1, but a few outliers are even offering discounts well into next month. 

That said, it pays to be an early bird when it comes to grill sales. Some models, like the Weber Original, regularly sell out. Claim your grill ASAP, and it may even arrive in time for a Memorial Day cookout.

So which grill should you buy this year? The internet is full of Memorial Day sales, and they're full of good deals. But this year's lineup of grill sales includes some of the best prices I've ever seen. Here are six stellar Memorial Day grill sales I've got my eye on, including options for a variety of budgets and cooking styles.

Weber Original 18-Inch Kettle Charcoal Grill

$119 (was $131) at Amazon

Weber's original kettle grill is the little black dress of barbecuing: It's a simple-but-effective classic design that will never go out of style. For a limited time, Amazon is discounting it to $119—no small potatoes for a grill that's been described by users as "the best made." It's worth noting that this no-frills grill is often sold out in hardware and home improvement stores, but Amazon has a steady supply… and speedy delivery.

Victory 21-Inch Kamado Grill & Smoker

$999 (was $1,299) at BBQGuys

Is it a grill? A smoker? Yes! This do-it-all small wonder is on deep discount from BBQ Guys. With charcoal as fuel, the Kamado is surprisingly efficient at heat retention and distribution thanks to a tightly latching lid and thick ceramic sides. "I was blown away by how well it held the perfect temp," noted one five-star reviewer who used it to smoke a brisket. This grill-smoker hybrid is typically $1,299, but it's on sale for $300 off until June 6. That is, unless hungry at-home pitmasters snap up the inventory first. Psst: Looking for something different? BBQ Guys has tons of other Memorial Day deals, including this sleek 4-burner gas grill from Blaze.

Cuisinart 360 Degree Griddle Cooking Center

$159 (was $203) at Amazon

If you've ever lost an asparagus spear or piece of shrimp through a grill grate, you'll appreciate this Cuisinart flat top cooking surface. Just like its more traditional predecessors, Cuisinart's take on propane grilling is able to accommodate two heat zones for precise cooking. And with 380 square inches of usable surface area, you'll surely use it for more than just wings and burgers—it's also perfect for pancakes, eggs, and trattoria-worthy pizza. "I don't think I am going back to a traditional grill any time soon," said one commenter who gave it high marks for its ability to sear at high temperatures, and easy cleanup. We love it, too: It made our list of 2022's best outdoor grills

Spark Grill

$899 (was $1,099) at Spark Grills

The Spark Grill is nothing short of revolutionary thanks to its proprietary heat source, compostable wood blended nuggets called "Briqs." Even our editors who swear by old-school grilling are impressed. Why splurge on a grill that requires a specific fuel? It's all about efficiency; Spark Grills go from zero to roaring heat in minutes—we're talking temperatures in the range of 900 degrees Fahrenheit, which is perfect for pizza. Prefer to go low and slow? No problem. The Spark can be dialed down to a gentle 250 degrees Fahrenheit for tender ribs and more. Now through May 31, all Spark Grill packages are $200 off—no discount code required. The hardest part is deciding whether you'll go with the classic black or chic navy color.

Cuisinart Petite Portable Gas Grill

$143 with coupon (was $200) at Amazon

For all the camping enthusiasts: Cuisinart's Petite Portable Grill is a standout in the field—or should I say, woods—thanks to its ultra lightweight (17 pounds!) and adventure-ready design. It's made from sturdy alloy steel and comes with removable legs so you can customize your grilling station no matter where the summer takes you. With a surprisingly roomy grate that can accommodate eight burgers, this grill is worth way more than its current Amazon price of $143. "The flavor of the food is equal to food cooked on a charcoal grill," praised one reviewer, adding the ultimate incentive: "The grill plate is so easy to clean; just put it in the dishwasher."

Solo Stove Grill Ultimate Bundle

$550 (was $775) at Solo Stove

This clever model from Solo Stove democratizes the grilling process, and I've never been more excited to share dinner responsibilities. With a roomy 360 degree design, the Solo Stove grill allows for multiple grill masters to cook at the same time. Of course, it delivers on efficiency, too. Its all-natural charcoal briquettes are ready to rock in 10 minutes. Even better than that, it's incredibly easy to set up—if you've got five minutes, you're already on your way to better burgers. This grill is made a little more luxe with the addition of added-value accessories, including fire starters, a portable stand, a set of essential tools, and four pounds of briqs to get you started.
