The days are stretching, and the atmosphere is becoming warmer. Summer has arrived. So this means grilling season has arrived. Therefore, this is the perfect time to invest in a grill. You are presented with many different options when looking to buy a grill, ranging from a pellet grill, a traditional charcoal barbecue, and a gas grill.
You also have to consider factors like size, price (depending on your budget), fuel type, and other features you want your grill to have.
This article has put together our best tips and tricks for finding the perfect grill for your home! Here are some of the things to consider when searching for a grill.
What size do you need?
Making this decision largely depends on the size of your cooking area. If you cook for about four people or less, a small or medium grill will do fine. However, if you have a large family and usually entertain more people, then a five or six-burner grill is the right fit for you. Before you purchase your grill, you must ensure your cooking area(deck, patio) can easily accommodate the entire wingspan of your new grill. This is because most grills have detachable side shelves that can be removed or collapsed.
The grill is advised to be placed at least 2-3 feet away from the house and flammable items for safety purposes.
What fuel type is best?
The answer to this question depends on your desired cooking methods and the quantity of convenience you expect from your grill. Each type has its advantage and disadvantages, so you should understand the major characteristics of each one so you can be well on your way to grill heaven. Explore your gas(natural gas or liquid propane) options, pellet grills, or charcoal. Take your time and choose whichever you feel is the right fit for you.
What else do you need to buy?
Once you have chosen the perfect grill, there are other accessories you might need to consider buying to enhance your overall grilling experience.
- Grill cover: the quality of your grill might diminish faster if it is left to withstand harsh conditions. Investing in a durable, heavy-duty vinyl cover that fits perfectly in the corners of your grill will be highly beneficial to you.
- Brush: Preferably brass; you would need it to clean food residue from your grill. A brass brush is perfect because it can easily take off piled mess without causing harm to the grill.
- V- racks, ceramic place setter, digital meat probe.
