Very widespread are gas barbecue carts. They consist of a rectangular gas grill on a base, which is equipped with two or four casters. The wheels make the grill easy to move, for example, from its storage place to the terrace and back. Gas grill carts are typically equipped with a fixed lid and side shelves. Often, they also have a base cabinet, which is perfect for storing gas bottles and other utensils. The side shelves can be folded away on many gas grills to allow for space-saving storage. Gas grill carts are particularly suitable for use on large balconies or patios.

The burners are usually made of stainless steel, but can also be ceramic burners or cast iron. The burners are connected to a gas cylinder via a hose. Most gas grills work with an operating pressure of 50 millibars, so a pressure reducer must also be installed. The gas is fed to the burners via the hose. The burners can be controlled individually by rotary knobs and are usually infinitely variable.

Under the gas burners, there is often a grease drip tray that is filled with water and can be pulled out. It is designed to facilitate the cleaning of the grill.
