Summertime in Colorado means lots of time spent outdoors! Is there any better way to spend a summer evening than grilling up some delicious food with your friends and family?
If you’re on a hunt for a new grill this summer, you’ve come to the right place. Ace Hardware of Fort Collins carries a wide range of grills to suit most every space, and we’re happy to help you decide which grill is right for you. With so many different kinds of grills to choose from, we know that it can feel difficult to know what grilling setup may be right for you.
Electric grills are often lightweight and portable, making them excellent for camping and tailgating. You can use them on balconies or porches, and can even be used inside (when paired with a venting hood). Electric grills use radiant heating elements instead of actual fire, making them cleaner and safer. They also heat up quickly and efficiently, allowing you to get your meal on and off the grill in minutes.
Gas grills heat up quickly, unlike charcoal or wood pellet grills which require time to get to high temperatures. Gas grills are most often fueled by propane, which is easily accessible and relatively cheap. Gas grills are also easy to clean – there is no ash to dispose of when you use a gas grill, and many come with removable drip trays which make cleanup a breeze. Gas grills are also able to maintain stable levels of incredibly high temperatures, which takes the headache and guesswork out of your grilling experience.
Smoking meat truly is unlike any other cooking method! The smoking process creates an unparalleled taste by imparting a unique smoky flavor onto the surface of food – what’s more, the flavor of this smoke can be changed based on the type of wood you use in your smoker. Smoking is also a slow cooking process – meat takes many hours to cook in a smoker, which allows the fat and collagen in the meat to break down, melt, and move into every little nook and cranny in your chosen cut of meat. This process creates a tenderness that is impossible to replicate with any other cooking method – even a grill!
Here at Ace Hardware of Fort Collins, we carry grills in a wide range of types, sizes, prices, and capabilities! Whatever your grilling dreams entail, we are ready to help you make them a reality. Read on to learn more about some of our best-selling grills, smokers, and grill accessories.

The Holy Gospel BBQ Rub. A mashup of our popular Holy Cow beef seasoning and The Gospel All Purpose rub. This took tons of test cooks to get it right. We saw plenty of folks mashing two rubs together plus acted on customer feedback of Holy Cow being too much of a black pepper punch or Gospel needing a little more. Whatever the case, this blend is great on ribs, chicken and beef.
