The gas-grill landscape is littered with models that are overbuilt, overpowered, overpriced—or all three. And while it’s fine to pay extra for a grill that looks shiny and cool, grilling experts agree: extra BTUs do nothing for you. The propane-fueled Qrave by Broilmaster has plenty of power to sear a steak, but its real specialty is keeping lower temperatures steady. The Qrave features a two-piece, two-level stainless-steel grill for indirect cooking: crank the heat on one side and let the meat slow-roast at 220 degrees on the other. That, in combination with the front-loading wood-chip tray and liquid-catchment container, make this the rare gas grill capable of smoking and steaming, too.

BOTTOM LINE: The Qrave isn’t flashy, but it’s one of the most versatile gas cookers on the market.
