Top Tips When Purchasing BBQ Grill
To me there is no experience better than whipping out the BBQ and rustling up some absolutely gorgeous food. Of course, much of the quality of that experience is going to be based around your actual cooking equipment. With thousands of BBQ grills available on the market it can be incredibly difficult to find one that is absolutely perfect. On this page I want to talk to you a little bit about a few of the things that you want to be on the look-out for when purchasing a BBQ Grill.
Gas or Charcoal BBQ?
When it comes to selecting a BBQ this is probably going to be your biggest decision. There are pros and cons to both:
• Gas BBQs are incredibly easy to set up. You just have to flick and switch and you are pretty much good to go. The flame is even distributed which should hopefully mean that your food cooks perfectly each and every time. The downside is that Gas BBQs are incredibly expensive to run….particularly if you are going to be flicking it on regularly. If you have to go down this route then I suggest a three burner BBQ at the minimum. These are highly versatile.
• Charcoal BBQs are going to offer the best taste. Let’s face it, half of the thrill of having a BBQ is being able to taste that gorgeous ‘smokiness’. You do not get this with Gas. These BBQs tend to be a great deal cheaper to run too. The problem is that it can be very difficult to get that food to cook properly all over. This may lead to some sections which become ‘burnt’.
Hood on the BBQ or Not?
You know, most people do not actually give that much thought to whether the BBQ they purchase should have a hood. I suggest you get one that does. They are all whole lot more versatile. By placing the hoot down you should hopefully end up with a far more even cook too!
The Size of the BBQ
This is an important consideration. After alll, if you are planning to cook for a number of people at once you are obviously going to want to have the grill space available to you. If you are cooking for large parties then your only real option is that of a gas BBQ. They tend to be bigger. You can get large charcoal BBQs but they tend to be a great deal more difficult to get set up.
You should always look into reviews for a particular BBQ before you purchase it. The job of the manufacturer is to sell the product. This can quite often mean that they make a number of claims that the BBQ really does not follow up upon. My suggestion is to head to a site such as Amazon and take a little look through the reviews for that BBQ. This will give you an idea about whether it is worth purchasing or not.
