Two inexpensive gas grill top picks

You don't have to hand over a lot of bills to get a good grill.

That's the finding from Consumer Reports, which tested and rated 30 liquid propane grills, commonly known as gas grills, for its June issue.

The magazine picked the $450 Blue Ember by Fiesta (FG50069-U401) and $300 Char-Broil Commercial Series grill (463268007) as its best buys, offering best performance for price.

The Weber Genesis (E-320) and Vermont Castings Signature Series' (VCS3507P), both priced at $700, were rated the best overall among mid-size grills. (The Genesis E-320 was recently recalled because of a fire hazard with a gas hose. Weber will replace and install the hoses.)

Testers grilled more than 160 pounds of beef, chicken and fish on large, mid-size, small and portable grills as part of the ratings process.
