Having a grill cover to protect your barbecue against elements is a must. Most are designed for all-season use, and the good news is that they’re inexpensive—even downright cheap—with the majority priced well under $50. Covers come in a slew of sizes (and sometimes color options) so it isn’t tough to find one that’ll give you the perfect fit, whether you have an extra-large gas or charcoal grill, a balcony-sized 32-inch model, or a portable grill that you take along on camping trips. Read on for our top recommendations, plus things to look out for and consider while you shop.
What to Consider
The majority of grill covers are made from polyester (600-denier weight is typical), with a waterproof or water-resistant PVC lining, and Velcro straps and drawstrings to keep them secure. Some have covers add air vents (a nice extra that keeps condensation off your grill, plus helps with wind control), and handles for easily sliding them on and off. Other than that, it’s about getting the right size for your grill brand or type. Generally speaking, they’re measured in length, ranging from roughly 30 inches all the way up to 80-plus inches. There are also covers specially made for kettle grills, smokers, and custom-fit covers for particular brands.
How We Chose
All of the grill covers in our selection have an average of four stars or more, and the majority are given 4.5-star ratings or higher. We feature covers made for a range of grill styles and sizes, plus options across multiple price points, from downright cheap to upgrades with the extra bucks if you have more to spend. We also highlight different size and color options for covers, when applicable.
