BBQ Store - BBQ Grills and SmokersAnswering some key questions before looking for a BBQ will help you to figure out what type of BBQ grill best suits your needs. Here are some questions that you need to cover before buying any BBQ grill: cost, taste, ease of use, additional features, and portability. The following is a list of BBQ grills: charcoal grills, gas, electric, wood, & pellet, all of which you can find in our BBQ store.
Price: Gas grills
generally cost more than electric and charcoal grills. So, if cost is
the biggest factor in your decision then a charcoal or electric grill
would be your best choice. However, charcoal won't save you money in
the long run. Charcoal is more expensive than fuel. You will spend much
more money on charcoal than you will on gas down the road when you are
having a BBQ.
How much flavor do you want?:
Taste is a determining factor for some people when deciding on what
type of BBQ grill to purchase. Electric grills are at the bottom of the
scale in this category as they offer the least amount of authenticity
when it comes to taste.
short, from least flavor to most flavor; electric, gas, charcoal,
(charcoal or wood) smoker, pellet smoker.
What features do you need?: Gas grills offer additional cook spaces that a charcoal or smoker unit cannot. Gas grills can have side burners, rotisserie kits, and multiple burners which allow you more cooking space and the ability to cook other types of food at the same time. As far as electric grills go, they can heat up quickly and don't require any fuel other than an electrical outlet nearby.
Do you need portability?:
If portability is the main factor in your decision then a gas grill
should be your choice. Small propane tanks allow you to easily take
your grill to a tailgate party or camping. Also, if you have a small
charcoal grill you are left dealing with the disposal of the charcoal
briquettes. There are many portable BBQ grills available, and all have
their advantages and disadvantages.
