Whether you’re preparing a tender, seasoned steak or a stack of juicy hamburger patties, having an outdoor grill at your bar, restaurant, or catering business is essential.

We offer a variety of built-in or portable styles, as well as gas versus charcoal, providing you with virtually limitless opportunities to find a grill that best suits your needs. Give customers the home-style taste of seared pork chops or flavorful vegetable kabobs with one of our many outdoor grills!

Fuel Type

The next step in figuring out what kind of outdoor grill you’d like to purchase is determining what fuel connections you have, or will need to get. We offer both portable and built-in grills that are powered through propane or natural gas. Some of our portable grills can also be powered with charcoal or wood chips.

Gas grills offer quick start up times, typically reaching the optimal cooking temperature in just 10-15 minutes. They also evenly distribute heat across the grilling surface, and often have temperature control knobs so you can regulate heat more precisely. This allows you to create different heat zones for searing, cooking, or warming.

Charcoal grills take a longer time to heat up, but can reach temperatures of up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit, which is perfect for steaks and large chunks of meat. Charcoal grills also provide that smoky, rich flavor that leaves your mouth watering. The chart below lets you compare both fuel types at a glance to determine which is right for you.

Portable vs. Built-In

If you plan to only use your grill in fair weather months, you may want to consider a portable grill that can be stored during the winter. If you have the ability to seat guests in an outdoor setting all year round, it might be beneficial to have a built-in grill with a simple, one-time installation.


Having a portable grill is a great investment for businesses that only grill during certain seasons of the year. Portable grills are equipped with casters, which make them much easier to haul around. In fact, many of our grills have removable legs that make them easy to store. Some of them even come with slide action grates that can be adjusted to different heights for optimal control over cooking temperatures.

If you are really looking for an easy-to-transport grill, you can check out our towable grills. These grills are attached to trailers that you can hook up to your vehicle and pull behind you, making them a great choice for caterers or tailgating events. Some manufacturers also make smoker units, which can be used for low and slow roasting to achieve tender, flavorful meats.


If you are looking for a more permanent solution to your grilling needs, you may want to invest in a built-in grill on your deck or patio, especially if you plan to use the area all year long. Built-in grills often boast higher power capabilities, making grilling for many customers at once an easy feat.

Our grill selection comes in a variety of durable constructions, like stainless steel, that allow them to withstand any element in virtually any environment. Plus, with natural gas and liquid propane options, restauranteurs can customize their units to best fit their needs. If you’re really looking for an upgrade, consider purchasing a rotisserie attachment or smoker box to expand your menu offerings.
