Five-burner gas grills are some of the most powerful, convenient and versatile grills. While any other can do the job, these massive grills are designed to cook enough food for a whole family or a party, in one go. That’s because you can easily cook via a technique known as multi-zone grilling, whereby you can set one area of the grill to cook at a different temperature to another zone. For instance, you can have meat roasting at high heat in one part, fish cooking at a moderate heat in another area, and sauces cooking on the side. Apart from that, a five-burner gas grill can greatly reduce cooking time as well as fuel consumption.
We reviewed 19 grills and found that the Broil King Regal S590 Pro is the best 5-burner gas grill overall. Offering unparalleled cooking area and heat output alongside the ability to run on either LPG gas or natural gas, and including a rotisserie burner, this outperforms many others by some distance.

Just so you know, we spent 72 hours and considered the cooking area, BTUs, build quality, among other factors in selecting the top five models in this post.
