"No matter your lifestyle, there's a grill for you."

Luis Nazario, the operations manager at Lowe's Home Improvement store at 5500 Milan Road, said there are more grill choices today than there were 10 years ago.

Gas grills. Charcoal grills. Electric grills. Smokers.

The list is expansive with all the different types available today.

There are portable and tabletop grills for apartments. Collapsible grills for tailgating.

Electric grills are becoming more popular because of increasing gas prices. More apartments are also more likely to accept electric grills because they don't produce open flames.

The most popular grills sold at Lowe's are made of stainless steel, which don't rust and hold up well outdoors. Stainless steel gas grills can cost between $499 to $999 at the home improvement store.

These grills are built to last. Cast iron, brass and stainless steel are just a few materials found in today's grills. These materials, Nazario said, are usually guaranteed for life.

Most of the higher-end grills are set up for propane, but can be converted from liquid propane -- which comes in a portable, refillable tank that attaches to the grill -- to natural gas.
