Outdoor Chefs Choose Gas Grills


How many of you remember dad trying to get the charcoal started? The mess, time and burgers tasting of lighter fluid are some reasons why outdoor chefs are choosing gas grills for their recipes for BBQs over a charcoal barbecue. A gas grill offers many advantages for BBQ over charcoal. An outdoor chef doesn't want to wait for the coals to heat up when a turn of the knob quickly gets the barbecues started. A gas grill offers the ease of a push button start, temperature control and no mess.

Before you buy, consider these points. Is the size of the gas grill important to you, or do you require portability? Would you like to cook an entire meal, or just use it for traditional BBQ grill recipes? This purchase will be an investment so check for sturdiness. If it wiggles, it may fall apart on you at home. Look for one that has high grade stainless steel and baked on enamel as these will last the longest. The better grills also have the grates that are stainless steel because grates made of other materials will rust. Consider a scale for the tank so you won't run out of propane right in the middle of a party. You could also purchase a grill that can be hooked directly into your home's gas line. If cost is a big deciding factor for you, you will probably want to purchase a charcoal grill. Many can be found in all ranges, even as small as the one person hibachi grill. If it's a complete outdoor kitchen you really want, you can find built in grills that will be perfect for your design. You can create a terrific entertaining outdoor room by adding a few appliances to your backyard. An outdoor fireplace or built in gas grill can become a focal point of your backyard. Your guests will love sitting around talking to the cook, watching you develop your scrumptious creations. You can find everything from "soup to nuts" or should I say BBQ ribs to barbecued chicken", in the stores or online. Grilling is a perfect opportunity to experiment with new recipes for your family and friends. Why do you think there are so many barbecue cookoffs? Everyone thinks they have the best barbecue sauce so have fun developing your own.

Don't wait for warm weather. People are using their gas grill all year even if they live in the North woods. The speed of cooking allows you to enjoy your favorite BBQs even when it's cold outside. Flavor is a great debate for people as some think you get only the best flavor from a charcoal grill. You can always use a selection of woods for that wonderful smoky flavor. Barbecues with apple wood are somewhat traditional, so be daring. Use some of the more exotic woods available such as guava, almond and apricot to spice up your standard grill recipes. Outdoor cooking is quickly becoming a first choice for any home and garden party.
