How to Choose a Grill

Choosing a grill is more than just size. You should consider the following when it comes to choosing a grill:

The type of Fuel

There are three types of fuel that you can use for a BBQ grill. They are:

Gas

Gas grills are one of the most common grills that you can buy because all you do is hook up the propane and voila you can get grilling right away. These types of grills are usually either on a cart or they can be freestanding. These types of grills are also one of the most expensive to run because depending on how much grilling you do; you may be buying propane on a regular basis which isn’t cheap.

Charcoal

These types of grills are the ones that give that smokiness that you like on your food when it comes to BBQ. These types of grills come in many shapes and sizes, but you’ll have to put in more work to make sure the grill functions properly. Charcoal grills cook with briquettes of charcoal or with lumps of carbon. From here comes the smoky flavor. It takes you more time to illuminate the briquettes and preheat the grill than you do for a gas grill. When you finish grilling, you will still have to scrub your grill and dispose of the ashes.

Pellet

Pellets provide delicious meat, particularly when cooked slowly, but the pellets can be costly and more difficult than propane or charcoal. Be willing to call or shop online.

Food-grade wood pellets are kept on pellets using a hopper on the hand. If the grill is switched on and the temperature is set, these pellets will be transferred by a spinning auger to the hopper in a burn-pot.

Size

When you determine the sort of fuel is right for you, consider the size of the grill that you use. Most small to medium-sized charcoal grills and two-burner gas grills are great when it comes to cooking four or fewer people from time to time. Sometimes, grills in square inches are weighed. Grills are wide enough for most people in a range of between 400 and 500 inches. Consider the larger model of four, five or even more burners whether you are the life of the party (10 people or more), or you have a big household. You would like at least one three-burner model if you are dead and get a gas grill, but you may want to cook meats such as whole chickens, or racks of ribs with indirect heat.

The Aesthetics

Your grill ought not just to do the grilling, it ought to look nice so that you can show off to friends and family. Popular choices are stainless steel, traditional black and etc. There are so many options that you can choose from so that you’ll have a stylish grill for your backyard.

Types of BBQ Grills

There are many types of BBQ grills that people prefer. Some prefer gas, some prefer charcoal. We’ll talk about all the types of BBQ grills so you can make the best decision on which ones to buy:

Gas and Propane

Gas and propane grills work pretty much the same, with usually 40,000 BTU of heat emitted from burners, firing at 3, 4 or more burners, to cook the food directly or indirectly from below.

One of the appeals of the gas BBQ grills are super duper convenient, quickly heated up and to improve the cooking experience there are several accessory choices. The industry is continually making new inventions by combining accessories such as side burners, lamps and integrated food thermometers as well as exclusive meat searing areas.

Charcoal

Charcoal grills are for people who truly love the smokiness of their foods. It involves way more work than the gas/propane grill, but the efforts are usually worth it. You usually have to let some air in so that it can get to a certain temperature.

You can usually do tougher kinds of meat on these types of grills as it takes a while for the charcoal to cool down and it’s perfect for that.

Charcoal-Kettle

These types of grills are extremely popular because of their shape. They are shaped like a kettle, have removable grates and a tight lid. You usually put the charcoal underneath the grates (elevated on a small grate) and airflow is usually controlled here. Another good thing about it is that it’s portable, so you can bring it to camp or wherever you may need a grill.

Pellet
