Where To Buy Barbecue Equipment: Retailers In The United States and Canada

When shopping for grills, smokers, and accessories you will find a vast array on the market. The best place to start is with our buying guides (remember we don't sell anything). When you are shopping, our buying guides and our talented team of moderators, led by Max Good, the only person in the world who tests barbecue equipment for a living, are at your fingertips. Just post a question and we'll try to help.

Where to shop? Many of the best grills, smokers, and accessories are not in stock at you neighborhood hardware store or big box. Most of them carry only the big national brands and their house label. Amazon has a vast array of tools for outdoor cooking and if you buy there by first using our links like the one in this sentence, they support this site with a finder's fee.

Another good source for hard to find gear is the barbecue specialty retailer. There aren't many, but the good news is that they are usually staffed by very knowledgeable and helpful folks. Here are some we know of. If you know of others, please post them to the comments section below.
