During the warm weather months, there is nothing better than cooking a meal outdoors on the BBQ grill. Grilling is a healthy way to cook everything from meat to seafood and it results in great-tasting food every time. Everyone should know how to pick the right BBQ grill in order to get the best results at the next cookout.
Step 1: Decide on either a charcoal or a gas grill. A charcoal grill is the traditional product used in grilling and is usually less expensive than a gas grill. However, this type of grill requires some experience to use in order to maintain a steady temperature and clean up is messier than its gas counterpart.
A gas grill uses either a direct connection to the home gas line or a propane tank. It heats up faster, has better temperature control, and is easier to use, but it yields food items with less flavor than those cooked on a charcoal grill. Gas grills are not as easy to take from place to place, but they do provide less opportunity to undercook or burn food.
Step 2: Decide on the amount of cooking space that is needed, based on the number of mouths to feed.
Step 3: Look for grills that have wheels on the bottom, so the product can easily be moved from place to place.
Step 4: If opting for a charcoal grill, search for one with an igniter. The igniter will replace the need for lighter fluid, lighters, and matches. Also, look for a model that has a lid because this will contain the smoke and shorten the cooking time.
Step 5: Select a charcoal grill with an easily accessible ash pan or a gas grill with an easy to reach drip tray or container. This will make the clean-up process a lot easier and less messy.
