Best Gas Grills with Rotisserie Burner in 2020

Your backyard grill can replace almost every cooking appliance in your house. But their utility at grilling very large pieces of meat is limited. 

Enter the rotisserie – a cooking method that’s been used for thousands of years with perfect results. Cook whole chickens, turkeys or turkey breasts, gyros, and more at your own patio-side BBQ rotisserie restaurant.

Best Overall: Weber Summit E-470 Propane/Natural Gas Grill

Weber’s Summit series grills are their top-of-the-line models, and the E-470 is simply one of the best gas grills out there. 

It’s loaded with every option the backyard chef could ask for. Sear burner? Check. Tuck-away rotisserie system? Check. LED fuel tank gauge, ten-year warranty, a smoker box with its own burner, and automatic LED lights? Check, check, check, and check.

Weber Summit E-470 Gas Grill

Specifications:

  • Fuel Type: Propane/natural gas
  • Number of Main Burners: 4
  • Rotisserie Burner: 10,600 BTU
  • Additional Burners: Sear burner 10,600 BTU + smoker box burner 6,800 BTU + side burner 12,000 BTU
  • Total BTU: 88,800
  • Primary Grilling Area (sq.in): 468
  • Warming Rack Area (sq.in): 198
  • Weight: 245 lbs
  • Build Materials: Porcelain-coated steel and stainless steel
  • Dimensions: 66″ x 26.5″ x 50.5″ (L x W x H)
  • Warranty: 10 years

The Weber E-470 is available in both propane and natural gas versions. It features 468-square-inch stainless cooking grate as well as a large warming rack. 

The infrared rotisserie burner puts out a whopping 10,600 BTUs, while the traditional four main burners make 48,800 BTUs total. It also has a 12,000 BTU side burner and a 10,600 BTU sear burner.

Probably the coolest part of this grill is the way that the rotisserie is integrated. The whole motor assembly lifts out of the side tray. When tucked-away, it’s not even noticeable. The grill also has a special place to store the spit when not in use.

The Summit series grills share the same feature set but come in various sizes to suit any cook. Look for the six-burner version if you need a little more space. There is also a stainless version of the same grill available, the S-470 being equivalent to the E-470 enamel-coated model.

Napoleon grills have a few great features worth noting. 

They have stainless grates and a unique wave pattern, which makes attractive grill marks. In addition, Napolen grills use a trademarked JETFIRE ignition system that ensures quick startups. 

They also integrate a nifty bicolored LED system in the burner control knobs, which makes the controls glow red when they are on. There’s an optional cast iron tray for charcoal or smoking, too, so you have many options with this grill.
