There was a time when most home grilling was done on charcoal. Many people still use charcoal grills. Their big attraction: is low cost. You can buy them for as little as twenty dollars.
Where charcoal grills cost the most are inconvenience, mess, and pour-tasting food. You have to douse the coals with lighter fluid then wait for the flame to die down and the coals to turn white. There’s a limited amount of time to get your cooking done before the heat disappears. Furthermore, the heat tends to be uneven unless you’re a stickler about spreading the coals. Not only can there be a different temperature on different areas of the grill, but the overall temp rises as the coals grow hot and fade as they begin to die away.
Some homeowners are hesitant to spend any more for a grill than they have to. However, those who are willing to invest a bit more for a first-rate grill will have a better grilling experience and can even save money in the long run by owning a grill that lasts longer. As it turns out, a top-quality cooker is the best grilling value for your money.
The Advantages of a High-Quality Grill
If you’ve never cooked on a top-quality grill, you’ve missed out on a real treat. High power and precise temperature control put you in charge of delivering the perfectly seared steak or roasting the most succulent rotisserie chicken. The best liquid propane and natural gas grills heat up quickly and maintain a consistent surface temperature. They adhere to top safety standards. Their manufacturers maintain a parts inventory and the grills are built to last. Unlike their cheaper cousins, they’re not likely to end up in landfills after only a few years.
It pays to do your research and purchase a first-rate grill that will fit your family’s needs. The world’s best grills come in small sizes for those who have a small patio space and never cook for more than a few people. But if you have a generous outdoor area and you love to entertain a crowd, you can invest in a larger grill that will make your patio the place to be for the most perfectly cooked burgers, chops, steaks, and roasts in the neighborhood.
