Your grill probably takes something like 1,200W. An good quality inverter capable of running that load would literally be close to the size of your battery and have wires about the the size of your little finger.
Take another example of a window air-conditioner. It's also going to be 110V (120V). Compare how big the wires are on that vs something like a desk lamp.
There are two components; voltage and current. A common analogy is a water pipe; "The voltage is equivalent to the water pressure, the current is equivalent to the flow rate, and the resistance is like the pipe size."
I like a slightly different analogy (flawed as it may be); mathematically, current (Watts) is Volts * Amps. If you consider Watts to be Weight you can then see the difference between a 150W inverter and a 1,200W grill.
