The Best BBQ’ing Tips
There is nothing better than getting ready for barbecuing on a nice summer day. The aroma of juicy hamburgers or mouthwatering barbecue ribs lingering in the air – it would make anybody want to get the barbecue grill out and start making a feast for your family.
If you are thinking about purchasing a new barbecue there are different types of barbecues to purchase. Anyone can get detoured by looking at a shiny new grill with flashy features. However, in order to find the right grill you must know what you are looking for first. Here are the different types of grills:
- The gas grill is going to be the most popular type of backyard grill. One of the main reasons why this is so popular – the gas grill can be started with propane or natural gas. A simple turn of a knob and a gas grill is ready to go. This is a great type of grill for someone who wants the grill to be ready fairly quick and when all of the food is done – the cleanup is extremely quick. One of the major pitfalls with this type of grill is the fact that gas grills do not have the intense smoke flavor like other grills. Also, gas grills can get expensive. A higher-end gas grill is going to have more burners, the body is going to be a nice stainless steel, and it also might have heating pots and extra storage areas to set pots and pans.
- The charcoal grill is another great way to barbecue. One of the main reasons why a charcoal grill is used is because of the temperature and also the flavor profile. Using this type of grill is going to be more time-consuming and it also is going to require fuel and fire power for cooking. Anyone that enjoys smoking meat or getting a high-quality sear on a steak is going to love this. One of the major disadvantages of cooking with a charcoal grill is going to be that it’s time-consuming. It takes at least a 45 minutes before a charcoal grill is going to be ready. The cleanup with this type of grill can also be difficult. You need to be sure that you know where you can dispose of your used briquettes and you also need to use a wired brush to clean the grill after you are done barbecuing.
- The electric grill is very versatile and it also can be used inside. This is a great grill for somebody that doesn’t have a backyard. Those who live in the city would greatly appreciate an electric grill. Unfortunately this type of grill does not have any type of smoky flavor. You can always use special seasonings, but the natural smoky flavor is completely lost. This grill is great for indoor usage though and when you are barbecuing with this grill getting those grill marks is really easy. Also, the cost of this type of grill is affordable. However, some of these grills can get expensive to wear some of these grills can cost almost $500.
- A portable grill is fantastic for anyone that likes to travel with their barbecue. For instance: a tailgater at a sports function would love this type of grill. It’s runs on either charcoal or propane and it is light weight. The only disadvantage to a grill like this would be the size. Obviously, a lightweight portable grill is going to be smaller. Pricing for this type of grill is also quite reasonable. Those are on a budget can realistically pick up a portable grill for under $50.
Pairing up with the right grill is going to be a matter of your lifestyle and your budget, but also you need to take into consideration the flavor you are trying to seek and how much time you would like to spend grilling your meals.
