Three Popular Types of Grills
When it comes to cooking on the grill, there are three overall types to help optimize technique, texture, and flavor. Let’s take a closer look in order to find the one that’s Just RightTM for you!
First - the standard gas grill, powered by a propane tank. Gas grills are a popular choice for those new to the grilling game as well as seasoned professionals. One of the best gas grills for beginners is the Broil King S440 Gas Grill charged at 40,000 BTU’s. Its stainless-steel surface makes for easy cleanup and offers 444 square inches of primary cooking space. There are also two side burners for additional broiling, if needed. If you love a quick heating option with easy clean up, this could be the grill for you!
Another popular choice - the traditional charcoal grill, powered from a lighter and coal. Direct heat from charcoal makes this option perfect for thinner cuts of meat or quicker cooking items like hamburgers, fish, or veggies! It’s typically also a more affordable and budget-friendly option. The Char-Griller Charcoal Grill boasts 830 square inches of cooking space and brings all the nostalgia and fond memories of backyard get-togethers.
Lastly – let’s explore the pellet grill. A pellet grill is just right for those times where you crave that quintessential, wood-smoked flavor and want your friends, family, and neighbors know you achieved true grill master status. Customizing flavor profiles is as easy as switching up your hardwood pellets. Try apple wood for a light, slightly fruity smoke flavor or hickory wood for a more bold, full-bodied taste. We recommend trying the Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill. The WiFire technology allows you to monitor temperatures using the Trager App to ensure a perfect outcome every time. Plus, you can grill up 7 rib racks or 9 pork butts or 10 chicken breasts at one time!
Now that you know which grill choice is just right for you, it’s time to go make delicious things!
