The grill is at the center of every great barbeque. Whether it’s a family reunion or dinner for two, there is nothing better than sizzling hot food from your backyard grill.The core of any good grill is the cooking system. A well made charcoal grill will contain a sturdy, heavy-duty, plated steel cooking grate and a charcoal grate to place the briquettes on.
There should be a lid with air vents as well. For free standing, non-portable, gas grill, you should look for models that have two or more separate burners (not just control knobs), which allow greater heat control. Smaller, portable and electric models may have fewer burners but should still have solutions for temperature control and emit even, consistent heat.
All grills should also have an efficient grease or ash collection system to keep the heat source clear of any clogs and any run-off juices from making a mess of your gorgeous grill. The best systems quickly flash the drippings, eliminating flare-ups and creating flavorful smoke.
The first thing you’ll want to decide is what type of grill to purchase: charcoal, gas or electric. This is really a matter of preference. Each type of grill has its advantages. And no matter which you choose – you’ll be ready to start cooking in the great outdoors!
Things to Consider Before You Get Your Grill on
Certain features simplify the way you use and maintain your oven. There are several features you should look out for depending on your cooking preferences, aesthetic tastes, capacity needs and demand for easy maintenance.
The primary or main grilling surface is measured in square inches and should be your most important consideration. The secondary work surface includes other areas such as warming racks and side-burners.
Come in either cast iron, porcelain coated cast iron, stainless steel, and porcelain coated steel or steel. Look for strong, high quality grates that will resist heat damage and hard weather corrosion.
Help control the heat. A good grill will have two individually controlled burners; three on high end grills. Stainless steel or porcelain coated steel burners are known to be rust resistant.
For preparing vegetables or sauces can be useful if your grill is located far from your kitchen.
Cooks food quickly using infrared radiant energy that sears the outside of meat, locking in the juices and flavor.
Illuminates the grills surface making it easier to cook at night.
Infuses food with flavor and make meat mouth wateringly tender through slow cooking at low temperatures. They require a chamber to hold the smoke and smoke source, like wood chips. Some grills come with a smoker box while others can double as a smoker. Freestanding smokers are also available in charcoal or gas fueled models.
Rotates food within the heat-filled grill chamber, for slow roasted meats with a juicer more intense flavor. This requires less heat than flaming grilling. Grills may have an integrated rotisserie and /or built-in motor with a dedicated rear rotisserie burner.
Built into most grills to allow for monitoring the temperature of the grill without lifting the lid. Some models have digital displays with meat probes.
