How to Choose the Right Type of Barbecue Grill

Lots of people enjoy the flavors of grilling over other types of cooking. It’s a tried and true method of getting juicy and deliciously cooked food. If you’re thinking of purchasing a grill but unsure about the best option for you, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading to learn about the different types of grills on the market right now and which one will deliver you the performance you’re after. Although many think of grilling as a summertime activity, you can grill 12 months a year in much of the country.

Gas Grills

One of the best outdoor barbecue grill setups you can use to improve your home is a quality backyard gas grill. Widely popular and designed to run on propane, this type of grill can also be converted quite easily to work on natural gas. If you want to fire up your grill on short notice and not worry too much about food preparation or clean up, this is the perfect solution for your home.

Electric Grills

An electric grill is especially convenient since a lot of units can be run both outside and indoors. Safe to use in areas with strict fire regulation codes, electric grills can be a great idea when you don’t want city laws to prevent you from having a great time in the summer.

Charcoal Grills

If you long for that genuine, smoky and delightfully flavored barbecue, consider getting a charcoal grill.

These barbecue grills run on charcoal briquettes and are considered to be healthier than regular gas grills. You do need a bit more skill to use it, and the price and maintenance costs may be higher than gas or electric outdoor grills, but it’s well worth it, especially if you add a firebox to cook delicious meat at lower temperatures.

All these options are great depending on your budget and lifestyle. If space is an issue, a portable grill running on propane or charcoal will help you minimize the space needed for a fun outdoor barbecue.

Should You Go for Built-in Grills?

A built-in model can be very costly, but totally worth it for those planning to grill all year round. What’s more, it can increase your home’s value considerably. Portable units are a lot more affordable, but they don’t provide the same level of convenience and elegance. An in-between option for those who don’t have the budget for a built-in is to go for a freestanding island, which is cost effective and still comes with a lot of features.

All in all, there’s really no one best grill—it all depends on your specific situation and needs, so do a little research and find the grill that is perfect for you.

Happy Fourth of July

In the United States, Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. The Congress had voted in favor of independence from Great Britain on July 2 but did not actually complete the process of revising the Declaration of Independence, originally drafted by Thomas Jefferson in consultation with fellow committee members John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman and William Livingston, until two days later.

 

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, picnics, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.

 

On this Independence Day, while you are relaxing with family and friends, please take a moment to remember those that have fought to defend our freedom over the years and to make this country a special place to live.
