Which Gas Grills are Made in the USA?

Figuring out which grills are made in the United States isn’t as easy as you might think. Just because a manufacturer is based in the US does not mean that they build their products here, and just because they assemble the grill here does not mean that its parts were made here.

There are a ton of advantages to doing research and finding an American-made grill. In many cases, it’s an excellent way to ensure you’re getting a high-quality product.

But, as with many things, it can get a bit complicated and time-consuming. But don’t worry, I have done the research for you!

So here’s a look at the advantages of US-made grills and a list of companies committed to keeping their manufacturing local.

Why Buy a Gas Grill Made in the USA?

We live in a world of globally-sourced products. Globalization has enabled everyone to afford a beautiful, full-featured gas grill, but it has come at an unfortunate price. These products that fill every big box store are not built to last a lifetime.

A painful truth in the modern world is that many of these offshore manufacturers’ goods will wind up in landfills. For some, that end comes sooner rather than later.

Quality is at the top of our minds when we shop for a high-end grill. If we’re going to lay out our hard-earned cash, we want to know the product will last, that we can get replacement parts if we need them, and that its production supports local jobs and industry.

Here is a summary of why American-made grills are worth the investment:

  • Quality: Higher manufacturing standards and quality assurance means that the overall quality of American-made grills is generally much higher than products made in China.
  • Reliability: Rigorous monitoring and testing of the products means that every part of the grill is more likely to perform exactly as it should so there will be fewer incidents of broken and malfunctioning parts.
  • Longevity: Made with quality materials like thick and expertly crafted stainless steel, American grills just last much longer.
  • Service and Maintenance: Brands that still make their grills in the US usually offer long warranties and excellent customer service. This means that if you have a problem, you’re not left alone but will receive the help and replacement parts that you need.
  • Economy: Supports the US economy and creates job security for Americans.

Getting all these things might cost a little more in the short term, but if the grill lasts a lifetime, we will save money in the end.

List of American-Made Grills

It’s not always that easy to find a truly American-made grill. Sometimes the information is not easily available — especially with brands that have many product lines and some are made in the USA and others overseas.

So let’s take a proper look at companies that put extra effort into building the best grills with the best parts. We’ll start with the bigger and more famous brands that are widely available. Later in the list, we’ll also cover smaller manufacturers whose products might be harder to find.


Made in Huntley, Illinois (from “US and globally sourced components”)

Weber has built their brand reputation on making high-quality American grills. The company was founded and is still headquartered in Illinois.

Unfortunately, like many major grill manufacturers, nearly all of their grills are now made from internationally-sourced components.

Weber has a huge selection of gas grills — portable gas grills, built-in gas grills, standalone gas grills, and of course a host of charcoal grills like the famous Weber Kettle.

Their entry-level grills are made overseas. According to their website, the only grills made in the US (still from “globally-sourced components”) are their charcoal grills, Summit gas grills, and the SmokeFire Pellet Grill.

TEC Grills

Made in Columbia, South Carolina

TEC (Thermal Engineering Corporation) Grills are famously the inventors of infrared cooking technology. That was forty years ago, and while many other companies have their version of the technology, TEC still has a reputation for making the best.

Unlike most others, these infrared grills can cook low, too — as low as 200 degrees. So, while all other makers simply install one infrared burner and call it done, TEC makes unique 100-percent infrared grills. In addition to built-in and freestanding infrared gas grills, TEC makes other outdoor kitchen appliances like refrigerators, doors, and drawers to match.

All TEC products are manufactured in Columbia, South Carolina.

Availability: You can find TEC grills on BBQGuys online store.

Made in Greenwood, Mississippi

Viking is a well-known maker of high-end kitchen appliances. They’re especially well known for their professional-grade gas ranges. Nearly all of Viking’s products, including their grills, are made in Greenwood, Mississippi.

Viking brings that same level of cooking quality to your outdoor kitchen for your open-air patio. They make a line of surface cooking appliances, including 13 and 20-inch side burners. In addition, their built-in 5 Series gas grills go from 30 to 56 inches, so there’s one that’s right for every outdoor counter.

Wolf makes built-in grills for the luxury outdoor kitchen. Their sizes range from 30 to 54 inches. Carts are available for grills up to 42 inches. The brand also makes a full line of kitchen appliances, from coffee makers and vacuum sealers to ranges and microwaves.

Wolf is one of three brands founded by Sub-Zero, which revolutionized home refrigeration in the 1940s. Today, Sub-Zero also owns Wolf cooking appliances and Cove dishwashers.

But who actually makes the Wolf grills, and where? The grills are US-made in California — but by Twin Eagles. Wolf grills are sold only through distributors, so if you’re having trouble getting your hands on one, check out Twin Eagles.

Delta Heat

Made in Cerritos, California

Delta Heat offers grills and outdoor kitchen equipment which are designed and manufactured by the experts at Twin Eagles, Inc.

While Delta Heat and Twin Eagles are sister brands, there are some notable differences in their products. Delta Heat grills are generally more affordable and smaller compared to Twin Eagles units.


Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan

Kalamazoo has some innovative designs like their Dual-Fuel Grill that allow you to cook with charcoal and wood in addition to gas.

All Kalamazoo grills, cabinets, and pizza ovens are built to order in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Are There Any High-Quality Grills Made Outside of the USA?

While many of the best high-end grills are made in the USA, there are some brands that offer excellent products that are made overseas.

First, I have to mention Napoleon, a company that makes some of their grills in North America (Ontario, Canada & Kentucky, USA). For example, the Prestige and Prestige PRO lines are made in Canada with high-quality materials. But the more affordable models (e.g. Rogue line) are made in their manufacturing plants overseas.

Blaze is one of my favorite gas grill brands with a range of premium stainless steel units. Their grills are made with durable and reliable parts and are covered with a lifetime warranty. One great thing is that considering all of the features and overall quality of their products, they are very competitively priced.

Another high-end grill brand Coyote also has a nice selection of gas, charcoal, and pellet grills as well as outdoor kitchen appliances and fixtures.

Take a look at my comparison of Blaze vs Coyote grills for more information about these brands.

But of course, there are also these brands like American Gourmet that make cheap gas grills for the masses. Made with plastic or thin painted metal and generally low-quality components, they start rusting and breaking apart easily.

The main problems with these types of cheap grills are:

  • They are not reliable and often malfunction.
  • They don’t last more than a few years.
  • There are no replacement parts available — if it breaks, you throw it away.
  • They consume more gas because of poor thermal insulation.
  • The grills usually have short warranties.

As you might guess, you can easily end up ruining your dinner when cooking with this kind of unreliable unit. Also, if you are conscious of the environment, it’s much better to invest in a durable grill that consumes less fuel and lasts for a lifetime.

So if you have the budget, it makes a lot more sense to buy a proper American-made grill!
