Even billionaires like a good deal. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky found love over a portable grill. The couple, who celebrated their 2-year-old son RZA’s birthday last weekend and welcomed a second son, Riot Rose, last year, fell for each other doing simple things such as setting out on a road trip and cooking their food on a “little janky grill” from Walmart.

Rihanna name-dropped the retailer in a 2022 Vogue magazine cover story, while opening up about her first pregnancy and falling for the Harlem rapper. Although the two had been friends for years, the pandemic — and a road trip from Los Angeles to New York City in the summer of 2020 — brought them closer. “I cooked our food on this little janky grill I bought from Walmart,” Rih recalled to Vogue at the time. “I still have it, too. It works like nobody’s business.”

In the spirit of Rih Rih, Rocky and their adorable family, and with Memorial Day and Father’s Day right around the corner, we decided to round up a list of bestselling portable grills that you can use for a road trip, tailgating party, Memorial Day BBQ or as a Father’s Day gift.

See below for a collection of portable grills to shop right now — including electric, propane and charcoal grills from Walmart and other retailers.
