    This Weber Genesis II is the leader of the mid-size pack. It gets top marks for temperature performance, has good temperature range and is as sturdy as they come.

    The Char-Broil Signature, available at Lowe’s, is excellent for cooking large cuts of meat that need to slow-cook, and has a top-rated surface temperature.
