SPRING AND summer entertaining is coming into view, with days getting longer and the weather warming up. While you set up your backyard space for the season, you’ll also want to head to Walmart, where there’s a major sale on grills, charcoal, and other accessories for your outdoor cooking station.
The sale brings discounts of up to 35 percent off grills and grilling tools which, when paired with savings on patio furniture, helps you stick to your budget while still creating the outdoor entertaining space you’ve been dreaming of.
There are pellet, gas, and charcoal grills included in the sale, so if you’re still weighing your grill options, you’re in luck. (And if you opt for a pellet or charcoal grill, Walmart has wood pellets and charcoal on sale too, giving you savings on all the supplies you need.) These Walmart deals won’t last long, so if you’re looking to buy, now’s the right time. From accessories to appliances, your new outdoor entertaining space is sure to be a hit all summer long.

The Best Gas and Propane Grill Deals
When it comes to grilling, a gas or propane model is going to heat up and cool down quickly and be fairly easy to clean. You can control the temperatures and burners as you would on a gas stove using knobs along the front of the grill. It’s similar to using a stove, and most models come with one to six burners.
While it’s not on sale at the moment, Walmart has our pick for the easiest gas grill to clean: the BBQGuys Victory Propane Gas Grill. The grill features a large, full-width drip tray that’s accessible from the front, which makes cleaning a lot easier than models with a smaller tray or drip cup, as well as stainless-steel grates that are easy to clean and don’t rust over time.
The Best Pellet and Charcoal Grill Deals
While a charcoal grill might be slightly more complicated to use than its gas counterpart, once you get the hang of using the grill, you’ll be too busy enjoying the smoky flavor it gives your food to think about the extra effort. Charcoal and pellet grills are typically more affordable than gas grills and burn at a hotter temperature for a better sear on your meats.
In our testing, we found the Oklahoma Joe’s Hitch Portable Charcoal Grill to be a sturdy charcoal grill that’s just as effective for cooking burgers in your backyard as it is for feeding hungry sports fans while tailgating. While it’s definitely on the heavier side, the portable grill is still easy to toss in the trunk and take with you or move in and out of storage between uses.
The Best Outdoor Cooking Station Accessories
While you’re upgrading your grill, you might as well go ahead and snag some accessories that’ll elevate your outdoor space. From a rolling cooler to grilling utensils that will come in handy time after time, these deals help you save on the extra things you’ll reach for when cooking outdoors. You can get a big bag of charcoal pillow briquets on sale, a meat thermometer to help cook everything to the perfect temperature, or even an outdoor pizza oven that’s $70 off.
