Grill Buying Advice

Grilling is a great form of cooking because, in addition to its smoky flavors and mouthwatering aromas, it's a fairly uncomplicated process. You don't need a lot of special equipment, high-voltage power outlets, or high-end pots and pans to get started. Grilling works for all kinds of foods -- from grilled shrimp scampi to baby pig ribs. To most of the people, grilling could also be a great entertainment fun.

Grills come in electric, charcoal, gas and pellet (burns wood pellets). Electric grills are typically portable, and most are small enough to place on a table or countertop. Unlike gas or charcoal grills, electric grills can be used indoors. But the foods grilled on electric grills lack a real grill flavor. Gas grill is the most common kind of grill sold these days. It offers good flavor, versatility and convenience. However, you need to buy propane or connect the grill to a natural gas line. What’s more, because gas grill do produce flare-ups so it need to be put away from any structure to avoid those pesky house fires. Charcoal grills offer better flavor than gas grills but also require a good amount of space to avoid unwanted fires. Another inconvenience of charcoal grills is that plenty of time is required from lighting the charcoal to starting cooking. Pellet grills are easy to use and offer a true hardwood flavor that is superior to charcoal grills but pellets are expensive and are not available in most retail outlets. Pellet grills are very expensive, costing about as much as a good quality gas grill. Gas grills are generally more expensive than electric or charcoal, with charcoal being the cheapest. If you don't want to spend a lot of money then charcoal might be the answer.

In the market, you can also find "contact" grills. These models work by applying heated grids directly to foods, usually from two angles. Contact grills usually convert to allow flat griddle-style cooking. Popular for their fast and efficient grilling, these units also do a great job with grilled sandwiches. Another added convenience is that many contact grills have nonstick surfaces so they are easy to clean. The contact grills do not function well with thicker items such as steaks, pork chops, or chicken breasts.

Some necessary accessories may provide safe grilling, including long-handled utensils, meat thermometers and heavy-duty mitts. Long-handled utensils, such as tongs, basting brushes, and spatulas, are necessary for getting foods on and off the hot grill rack, for basting and turning. Meat thermometers are the safest way to judge the doneness of grilled meats and poultry. Heavy-duty mitts safeguard your hands and forearms and prevent burns. Never grill without them.

Buying Tips:
You’d better take the following questions into consideration before you buy a grill: Where do you plan to grill? What kinds and quantities of food will you be cooking? What's your budget? All this concerns will affect your future decision on selecting your favorite grill. Stainless steel and copper materials are the most selected for the reason of easy cleaning afterwards. In the meanwhile, you can also choose according to your burning materials. Different burning materials will have different kinds of designs.
